MASS EXODUS OF CALIFORNIA BUSINESSES AS FEAR OF A BROWN VICTORY AND DEMOCRAT REGULATION

October 30, 2010

  A VERY SAD STORY. Read to the bottom. I’m sure you will see some very familiar business’s MOVING OUT OF CALIFORNIA !!!
I don’t care who you are or what you “believe” politically, you better take note of what is going on in CA.   We are already over 12% unemployment here, and if the current “thinking” in Sacramento doesn’t change, there won’t be any jobs or tax base left. 
 
We went to a political fundraiser last weekend for Meg Whitman… at this event were several owners of manufacturing companies in the central valley.  They represented hundreds if not thousands of jobs. They stated that if Jerry Brown wins in November, they are GONE, and taking their businesses with them to some other state.  These jobs will permanently leave CA.  These owners ( Facebook ,Fox Family, Hilton Hotels Corp are just a few ) say they simply cannot survive the taxes and the over regulation.  So take a look at this list below and think about all the additional jobs that will soon be leaving this state if we are not smart enough to take it’s control from the unions and give it back to the people. 
 
I would urge everyone who lives in the state of CA to consider mailing this on to every Californian on your email list. 
 
Even if you do not read  this entire e-mail, you ought to scroll down and see what a massive  list this really is.   California  is no longer the  Golden   State , thanks mostly to the inept morons in  Sacramento  and their asinine policies.
 
       It costs a company lots of money to pull-up roots and move, a decision not to be taken lightly.  The majority of these jobs and companies will never come back.  The last part tells the story we as a small business deal with every day.
 
       JOBS GONE FROM CALIFORNIA
 
       Abraxis Health, a unit of Los Angeles-based Abraxis BioScience Inc, opened a new plant that will create 200 jobs in 2010 — in  Phoenix . 
       This follows the company’s Phoenix expansions that occurred in 2007 and  2008.
 
       Alza Corp. In 2007  eliminated about 600 jobs in drug R&D while also exiting its   Mountain View ,  Calif. , HQ.  At the time the company said that    its 1,200-person Vacaville facility will continue to operate.   But the Vacaville Reporter on Oct. 23, 2009 revealed that the plant is being offered for sale    by J&J, its parent company.  It’s unclear if more layoffs are in the facility’s future.
 
       American AVK, a producer of fire hydrants and other water-related products, moved from Fresno  to  Minden ,  Nevada .

       Bazz Houston Co., Located in  Garden Grove , has slowly been building a workforce of about 35 people in  Tijuana .  In early 2010 the company said it expects to move more jobs to Mexico, citing cost and regulatory difficulties in Southern California.
 
       Beckman Coulter, a biomedical test equipment manufacturer headquartered in Brea, relocated part of its Palo Alto facilities to Indianapolis, Indiana, two years ago.  In early 2010, it’s making a  multimillion-dollar investment to expand and create up to 100 new  jobs in Indiana.  The company said the area offers a “favorable  business environment and lower total cost of operations, plus a  local work force with strong skills in both engineering and  manufacturing.”
 
       Bild Industries Inc., which specializes in business news, directories and market reports, moved to  Post Falls ,  Idaho , from Van Nuys, a part of the San Fernando Valley in  Los Angeles .
 
       Bill Miller Engineering, Ltd., suffering under the “hostile business climate” in  California and  Los Angeles   County , moved from  Harbor   City  to  Carson City ,  Nevada .
 
       BMC Select has conducted an unusual relocation.  The company, which had shifted its headquarters from  Idaho  to  San Francisco , relocated its H.Q. back to Boise  in January 2010.  The building materials distributor said that regaining its footing in  Boise  retained access to high-quality employees while reducing wage and occupancy costs.
 
       BPI Labs, which formulates, manufactures, and fills personal care products for the health and beauty industry, relocated from  Sacramento  to Evanston ,  Wyoming , a move the company’s owner called “very  successful . . . .  It felt good and we’ve never looked back.
 
       Buck Knives after 62 years in  San Diego  moved to  Post Falls , Idaho .
 
       CalPortland Cement has announced in late 2009 closure of its  Riverside   County  plant because of new environmental regulations from a state law (AB 32).  The  company’s CEO wrote, “A cement plant cannot be picked up and moved,  but the next new plant probably won’t be built in  California   meaning more good, high paying manufacturing jobs will be lost to Nevada  or  China  or  somewhere.”
 
       California Casualty Group left  San Mateo  for  Colorado , cutting operating costs to remain competitive.
 
       CalStar Products Inc., headquartered in  Newark ,  Calif. , in the San Francisco Bay Area, in January 2010 was awarded $2.44 million in federal clean energy tax credits.  The company said in the future it expects to build  additional plants in the  Mississippi   Valley  and the East  Coast.  In late 2009 CalStar opened a plant in  Caledonia ,   Wisconsin .

       Denny’s Corp., the large restaurant chain once had its headquarters in La Mirada , later in Irvine , Calif , and then moved to Spartanburg , South Carolina .  In fairness, I note the move occurred in the early 1990s.  However it’s noteworthy because the company was  founded in  California  and its growth over time created HQ jobs in another state.
 
       Digital Domain, the Academy-Award-winning visual effects studio based in  Venice ,  Calif , placed new studios in  Vancouver ,  British Columbia , and  Port St.   Lucie ,  Florida , which combined will have about 500  employees.  The facilities will allow the company to reduce costs while continuing to deliver cutting-edge work.
 
       Ditech, headquartered in Costa Mesa , announced in January 2010 a 269-job cut and is moving most activities to the GMAC Financial Services (parent company) headquarters in  Fort Washington ,  Pennsylvania .  In 2007, Ditech  relocated some workers from  Costa Mesa  toPhoenix.  A once  robust  Costa Mesa  facility employing hundreds will be down to 20 or  30 workers.

The cost savings  associated with relocating our corporate headquarters will start  immediately. . . The aggregate total of these expense reductions  will increase our profitability and cash flow in this and succeeding  years and, over time, substantially improve our ability to further  reduce our long term debt.
 
       Facebook, based in  Palo  Alto , will expand in a major way in  Oregon  by locating a custom data center in Prineville.  It will be a 147,000-square-foot  facility costing $180 million and will employ 200 workers during  construction and another 35 full-time once operating in  2011.

       MiaSolé, based in the Silicon Valley, was reported in January 2010 to be planning a 500,000-square-foot plant, which could be one of the largest solar factories in the  United States .  The location is not near its  in  Santa Clara  headquarters but in the  Atlanta ,  Georgia , area where  its workforce eventually could exceed 1,000.  The news came one week after MiaSolé received $101.8 million in federal tax credits.
 
       MotorVac Technologies announced in February 2010 that it’s leaving  Santa Ana  forOntario, Canada .  MotorVac’s CEO said he “really fought hard to keep MotorVac here, but unfortunately the numbers didn’t  support it.  “The move cuts costs because it’s new owner,  UView, has its own plant with excess capacity in  Canada .  And the general cost of doing business in  California  is much more expensive.

October 27, 2010

We as Americans must make an effort to recover from the demise of America under Obama and the democrats. Democrats such as Jerry Brown, Harry Reid ,Barbra Boxer,Pelosi and many other democrats have worked hard with Obama to turn this country into a third world socialist nation that will eventually be over ran with illegal aliens and  blown away by radical muslim terrorist. Obama has no love for America only a love for power and the destruction of the American way of  life .Arming Obama by electing fellow democrats is giving him the bullets he needs to bring about the demise of this great nation.

JERRY BROWN A LEFT WING LOON ARE PEOPLE IN CALIFORNIA REALLY THIS STUPID?

October 25, 2010

It appears Californians are satisfied with the status quo of job loss and increased taxes as well as a reduction of services under the Obama  administration. Jerry Brown is a failure and has always been a failure he has a track record to prove it. It is a total disgrace to see that he is leading the Governors race in california when in fact the state would be better off with his departure.  America screwed up with the election of Obama and we are paying the price if you elected Brown it proves you are too stupid to learn from past mistakes and must suffer the fate of your stupidity as a fellow American I could not reach out to save you as you are not worth saving let the natural selection process take place .Has Jerry Brown ever had a real job? No he has always been a career politician and there is the problem.

JUAN WILIAMS FIRED FROM NPR WHY ?

October 23, 2010

CONVERSATION ABOUT THE THREAT OF RADICAL ISLAM By Joel C. Rosenberg (Jacksonville, Florida, October 22, 2010) — That National Public Radio fired liberal commentator Juan Williams this week for publicly expressing on the Fox News Channel his anxieties about Muslims in America is appalling, but not surprising. NPR has long been hostile to the views of evangelical Christians and conservatives. Now, apparently, they are even hostile towards liberals who express personal sentiments on a conservative TV program. But the dustup is important not simply because it exposed once again the left-wing bias of NPR and demonstrated yet again why the network should not receive a dime of public funding. It was important because of the chilling implications over free speech in this country.

Are we really not allowed to say in a post-9/11 world that Muslims traveling on planes make some Americans uneasy? What else are we not allowed to say? Should we not discuss the threat of Radical Muslims to Judeo-Christian civilization? Are we not allowed to express our concerns about what would happen if Radical Muslims acquired nuclear, chemical or biological weapons? What happened to free speech in this country?

The vast majority of Muslims in the U.S. and around the world (upwards of 90 to 93 percent) are moderate, peaceful people. They don’t believe in jihad. They are not suicide bombers or terrorists. They want good jobs, good schools for their kids, and the right to practice their faith without persecution or government interference. But there is a small but important percentage of Muslims that are highly dangerous. They believe that Islam is the answer, and violent jihad is the way. Americans need to talk about both groups. We need to learn about and discuss the differences. We need to understand who the Radicals are, and who the Reformers are.

At the same time, we need to understand that there is a subset of Radical Muslims who are even more dangerous. They don’t simply want to terrorize us; they want to annihilate us. Chief among them are the “Twelvers,” a Shia Muslim cult who believe that end of the world is at hand, that the Islamic messiah known as the “Twelfth Imam” is coming to earth at any moment, and that the way to hasten the arrival of the Twelfth Imam is to annihilate two countries – Israel, which they call the “Little Satan,” and the United States, which they call the “Great Satan.” What makes these Twelvers especially dangerous right now is that they are running the current government of Iran. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei is a Twelver, and says he actually met with the Twelfth Imam last July. Iranian President Ahmadinejad is a lifelong Twelver, and is actively seeking to build nuclear weapons. Both have publicly called for the annihilation of the U.S. and Israel, and they are doing so for expressly religious purposes.

The world is doing precious little to stop such men. The Obama administration certainly isn’t taking decisive action to stop Iran from getting the Bomb. So every day the danger grows that the Twelvers will get nuclear weapons and either use them against Israel, and then the U.S., or give those weapons to terrorist groups who will seek to obliterate their enemies. Now is precisely the time to talk about such things. Now is precisely the time to talk as Americans about our anxieties and our fears. This is why I wrote a new political thriller entitled, The Twelfth Imam, to help foster such a national conversation and to take people inside the story and to help them imagine what might happen if the world ignores the threat posed by the leaders of Iran.

NPR apparently wants to silence Americans who are concerned about the threat of Radical Islam. Thankfully, there are a multitude of other media outlets who permit a national conversation about Radical Islam to take place. Such a conversation is, after all, more needed than ever.
