    The OP has no links to a credible source for the claims, and therefore may be taken as a hoax.

    California, a blue state, has had over 12% unemployment for the whole recession, and has teetered on the brink of bankruptcy for years - it's everything texas is not: it has one of the country's hignest overall tax rates, almost the worst government schools, lavishly compensated greedy government employees - thousands and thousands with six figure salaries and unheard of benefits, and of course several million illegal alien invaders sopping up government services and bankrupting ERs.

    Ads from the state of texas run all the time to lure businesses away, and they go. They'd be insane to stay in a state with high taxes, out of control regulation, and official hostilty to businesses. The state system is one of the principle enemies of the leftwing, because when they get intolerable in a given state, people and businesses can always move to a friendlier place. That's a reason why leftwingers are always trying to expand federal government and centralize control - they want to make it impossible to escape their slimey claws, but of course they have no control if they drive businesses overseas.

    Hey, when you don't have a job, any income is appreciated. I agree that Perry's miracle is more of a mirage but lets be fair....if the jobs were totally worthless; nobody would be doing them. People are doing them and anytime someone gets more income, it helps the economy because they spend that money.

    Okay that being said, the retail gasoline market is based in Texas; plenty of refineries and processing plants. And the Taco Bells across the street stay open 24 hours. Hence, the jobs are created.

    Guy, do you really think this is an issue?

    Most Americans want criminals executed.

    Your supposed innocent man was a guy who got out of his burning house unscathed when his children burned to death... That doesn't sound suspicious to you. (Incidently, his wife thinks he totally did it.)

    Convict in disputed execution was guilty, ex-wife says - CNN

    The ex-wife of a Texas convict executed in 2004 for the deaths of his three children reaffirmed her belief in his guilt Wednesday as his relatives sought to open a new inquiry into the case.

    The family of Cameron Todd Willingham has asked a judge to posthumously clear his name, arguing that he was put to death based on "junk science." Though Willingham was executed in 2004 for killing his three daughters by setting fire to his house, subsequent investigations by outside experts have concluded that the fire that killed the girls should not have been ruled arson.

    Willingham's ex-wife, Stacy Kuykendall, has kept a low profile throughout the debate over his execution. But she told reporters outside the Travis County courthouse in Austin that "I am here to make sure that my daughters' voices are heard."

    "Todd murdered Amber, Karmon and Kameron. He burnt them," she said. "He admitted he burnt them to me, and he was convicted for his crime. That is the closest to justice that my daughters will ever get."

    Kuykendall spoke before an Austin judge opened a hearing into the Willingham's family's request for an inquiry into the execution. But inside the courtroom, prosecutors from the town of Corsicana -- where the 1991 fire took place -- forced a delay in the proceedings by challenging the impartiality of District Judge Charlie Baird and asking him to recuse himself.
