Explosion shows cost of doing business in Texas
If Texas Gov. Rick Perry came to you a California business owner telling you about making more profit and saving costs in red tape and business regulations by moving your business, your family and workers to Texas, would you put your faith in him?
Personally I put my faith in California, which has strict zoning regulations that would never allow a fertilizer manufacturing plant with many highly explosive chemicals to be a neighbor to apartment complexes, homes, schools and senior housing facilities. I put my faith in health and safety regulations and oversight that would ensure safe storage, handling procedures, emergency and safety procedures, and accurate records of large amounts of explosive fertilizer chemicals.
My sympathy goes out to the survivors in West, Tex. They know the hidden costs of business as usual, Rick Perry style. -
As a small business owner who lived in the Bay Area for 37 years, I finally had enough and moved to the San Antonio area. The Bay Area and California is full of foreigners and home grown morons. Just look at the state of the economy and cost of living. Keep bad mouthing Texas because then it will keep all the California Idiots from moving there. We don't want them. Austin is full of them and it sucks. The last thing I want is another pompous Californian moving to Texas.
