Lewis Black vs. Rick Perry

One of the funniest comedians out there vs. Rick “George W. Bush Without The Brains” Perry — no contest.

Rick Perry is trying to persuade businesses — particularly in Illinois, California and New York — to relocate to Texas, where bidness folks ain’t gettin’ strangled by them there Comminist regulations.  There’s a radio commercial with Rick Perry saying:

“If you’re tired of the same old recipe of over-taxation, over-regulation and frivolous litigation, get out before you go broke. Texas is calling…The escape route leads straight to Texas.”

To which Lewis Black replies:

“Because nothing says ‘We’re on the cutting edge of 21st century business’ like an ad on the radio!”


“Now he’s trying to take California jobs?  Rick Perry doesn’t know it, but he just doubled his porn industry and tripled the number of skateboarding panhandlers…But go ahead, Perry.  Take your best shot. ‘Texas is calling?’ Well good thing I’ve got caller ID.  Listen, Texas, trying to steal jobs from Illinois and California is one thing, but you’re going to try to trash-talk about New York? Not on my watch…‘Don’t mess with Texas?’  Don’t fuck with New York.”

Even though Californian Businesses complain about the taxes and regulations in California, they are hesitant when Arizona and Texas comes a calling neither State has a lot of Water, Not much Culture and Creature Comforts that you get out here, Strict Marijuana Laws for those Executives that like to fire up once in a while, Finally since tech has so many foreign workers (and owners) of color they don't want to move to states where they are going to be harassed as illegal.

Lots of Gay Money is out here in California, they would think twice before they want to relocate in States where their Leaders have openly wished them off the face of the Earth.

The Bay Area company I retired from got many huge offers to move from those States, the big reasons why they stayed were:
Closeness to the UC system and it's talent.
Closeness to the Wine Country and the 5 star restaurants.
Skying and Other Recreation.
Decent Weather.
Distrust of their Conservative Governments that don't openly embrace diversity. I know one Manufacturing Plant that got a great deal to move to Idaho, until their employees said they weren't going move and they knew Idaho couldn't supply such educated workers.

The Biggest Secret of All-

California Corporations Pay the lowest Property Taxes in the Nation Thanks to Prop 13

Lewis Black cracks me up. I love righteous anger that makes me laugh.

Erik: Yup, those are all perfect examples. The Right insists corporations "no regulations." In the real world, most employers would rather be located in an area with good schools and hospitals, an educated and diverse population, and clean air and water -- all of which are made possible by them commie regulations.

Jim: I love Lewis Black's rants.
