He includes 25 Orange County companies including Kyjen Company (Huntington Beach to Centennial, Colo.) and MotorVac Technologies (Santa Ana to Ontario, Canada) that have expanded outside California or moved completely.
But he excludes companies like Irvine Scientific of Santa Ana, which is building a production facility in Japan, because its tied to a global expansion strategy, not Californias business environment.
Here are the Orange County companies on Vranichs list:
* Bazz Houston Co., Garden Grove, moving jobs to Tijuana * CB Richard Ellis, Newport Beach, moved IT jobs to Texas * Ditech, Costa Mesa, moved most work and jobs to Fort Washington, Pa. * eEye, Irvine, expanding in Phoenix where the executive team is * Imperial-Newton Inc., Huntington Beach, moved to Centennial, Colo. * InsulTech LLC, Santa Ana, moving to Evanston, Wyoming

Using this informations, I can imagine an extremely powerful TV ad for Meg Whitman to use against Jerry Brown.
At the end of the ad, Whitman should appear and say “California, are you OK with this? I’m not!”
Or at least ask Gray Davis to do it. He's good at that.
The sooner all those grubby capitalist corporations are driven out of California, the sooner Californians will all be enjoying the utopia they’ve long deserved.
I read the headline of this article out loud. One of my co-workers responded with “Good! Maybe there’ll be less traffic.”
I work with fools.
Till they lose their jobs. :)
And when they crossed the state line out of CA, they said, "SCREW YOU, KALIFORNIA!"
True, but it's happening during the SchwarzenRINO administration.
It'll look like dem city - Detroit: Broke, crime-ridden - with good people fleeing...
I get that... but will the voters? It's going to require some critical thought on their part to make the connection you described.
Yes, the utopia that is Detroit...
“...the sooner Californians will all be enjoying the utopia theyve long deserved.”
How do you say “utopia” in Spanish?
Wish some of these companies would move to AZ.
GASPPPPP!!!! To RACIST Arizona, no less! Why, I... Am... Appalled!
Jan Brewer ought to make a VERY aggressive tax-amnesty offer to companies that move out of CA to come to Arizona!
And THAT’s an “amnesty” we can ALL live with!

The curve of businesses leaving has been trending upwards as more of them realize that they have to move or become a welfare benefits dispensing station instead of business - much like GMC in the 1980s and again today.
I wonder how long it will be before the State of California declares it illegal to leave the state?
That will be a DRAMATIC change in weather....
Don't know if it get's colder than 40 below in the winter...but I am sure it gets close.
As CA becomes AztLAn, AZ’ll have to start worrying just as much about her border on her west as much as on her south.
Wyoming is very business friendly and loathe to to grow government. For instance, they've added little to the state university system even though the population has grown. One reason is that neighboring states have surplus capacity in their university systems and reciprocity agreements with Wyoming.
As an added bonus, most of the population knows how to work thanks to a lot of experience on farms, ranches and oil rigs.
They should all come here - summer heat notwithstanding, the quality of life in Scottsdale and some other parts of suburban Phoenix is higher than in any part of suburban California.
Of course, I shouldn't say that because most of California's infinite supply of Range Rover-driving, round-glasses wearing, environment-saving liberal prick lawyers will want to move here. So the truth is: we have giant Gila Monsters lurking everywhere...just waiting to bite your little public school honor student kids in the butt. Don't come. Sheriff Joe will pull you over for displaying an Obama sticker, give you a ten question test on your loyalty to America, and arrest you if you don't answer right. And he'll deport your gardener every Monday. :)
Uno bordello con mezcal y marijuana libre = “One bordello with mezcal and free marijuana”
And Jan Brewer herself will show up and, effecting her best German accent, say “Your papers, please.”
Sounds like utopia to me. ;-)
I moved out in 1976 when I joined the AF, and never moved back. Thank God I made that decision. I notice two of the companies leaving CA are heading here to Virginia.
I would like to thank the people and state of CA for creating the conditions possible for other, more business-friendly states to welcome these folks. We’ll treat these job creators the way they SHOULD be treated. I’m sorry for those left behind who’d like to leave the state but don’t have the resources to do so.
California, for 60 years you’ve had a GREAT run.. at one time you constituted the 7th largest economy in the world. But clearly and undoubtedly... it’s over.
What have they shared in common over the last 40 or so years?
Did Gordon and Smith move out of state or close down.
Gordon and Smith were the surfboard maker when I was a kid. A couple of years ago, Cali enviro regs made surfboard making illegal.
let that sink in Surfboards, California, Illegal.
The extra cost, in telecommunications, and business trips to California, was considered trivial, compared to employing people there. The regional manager had the authority to create jobs in Las Vegas to serve California clients, but not to create them in California -- that had to be signed off on by the CEO.
“Californians will all be enjoying the utopia theyve long deserved.”
I don’t deserve this. I’m in Bakersfield. Still a Conservative stronghold. Tough to watch The Golden State crumble.
