    Now, why would they want to do that? The state of California needs those folks to pay their fair share of taxes. Heck, we don’t even pay income tax here in Texas.

    Welcome to the state of economic prosperity. We are glad to have you here. You won’t like the weather, but you’ll enjoy all the rest.

    Just what Houston needs more California lib imports. The worst thing about companies moving workers along with company holdings to TX is the the importation of anti conservatives to a previously conservative state.
    Maybe they could issue a test to decide what workers to transfer.
    Something along these lines.

    I’m assuming that many of those that work in tech divisions for an oil company are somewhat conservative. That has been my experience thus far.

    The People’s Republic of California thing does come into play, but they cant do too much to make Houston more liberal. Sheila Jackson-Lee is from Houston.

    The test does seem like a good idea though.
