Texas is a great state--my wife's family is from there, and I love to visit--but denying that California is home to some of the world's biggest companies is just ignorant.
Denying that California policies are not business friendly would be ignorant as well. http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.c...ff-the-lights/
