Earlier today, Californians were struck by a new radio ad Texas Gov. Rick Perry put out, asking our state businesses to pick up and relocate to the Lone Star state. The governor/failed presidential candidate bragged about Texas' low taxes and easy regulations would make businesses life so much easier.
Okay, so you can probably make a shitload of money while killing trees and not sweat about getting sued. Still, you don't see the Googles and Apples of the world vying for Texan headquarters. As California Gov. Jerry Brown eloquently put it, anyone "with half a brain" is coming to California, not Texas.
And here are some possible reasons why:
5. Whatever money you save on taxes, you'll have to spend on building really big parking lots, like Texas-sized lots, and insane amounts of air conditioning.
4. How in the hell would a Civil War redux be good for business?
3. Our guess is that office Happy Hours at the Lone Star Saloon in Texas will never be quite as fun as office happy hours at San Francisco's Lone Star Saloon
