“Come Check Out California”

ricochet.Rick.Perry.photo.jpgGovernor Jerry Brown’s radio commercial in which he urges Texas business owners to “Come check out California” … does not exist.  

However, the opposite commercial does. In it, Gov. Rick Perry explains, “Our low taxes, sensible regulations, and fair legal system are just the thing to get your business moving — to Texas.”

    “Come check out California” would sound a lot like “North Korea: a great place to visit!” right now, or “Somalia: we have beaches too!”.

    I heard Gov. Perry’s commercials several times yesterday as I drove around L.A. and saw several empty store fronts that just a few years ago housed small businesses. Gov. Brown’s bullet train & higher taxes will not help CA’s economy nor lead tenants to fill those vacancies.

    By the way, regular gas has risen close to $4/gal. “Forward,” proclaimed the Prius next to me this morning.

    California is starved for political wisdom from the voters on up.

    Texas does not have a wisdom problem.

    Are you tired of having to make so many decisions everyday? Don’t you wish regulators could make those decisions for you? Do you ever worry about what to do with all that extra cash you have at the end of the month? If only the tax code could free you from that burden. Want to leave all your worries behind? Come to California and we’ll take care of the rest.

    Brilliant!  I’m laughing my rear end off.  It’d be even funnier if I didn’t live in California.

    I used to live in California (Bay Area) and was fortunate to get out at a good time.  I occasionally miss the Golden State but the current State of Rust is hideous and I have no plans to go back.

    The irony is that any competent businessman already is aware that Texas has lower regulation and a business friendly enviroment.  He doesn’t need the radio ad.  I think it’s more of a Rick Perry, “I told you so.”

    Texas DOES have a border problem though, which is why I think you Texas fans are in for heartbreak in a generation or so.

    Actually Texas has a problem with the United States which has a border problem.  Texas is not alone, since Arizona and other states also have problems with the United States which has the border problem.
