California by far is the worst state for business.  Just look at recent past history.  The tax crazy bastard democrats gerrymandered the state to get a majority in the assembly and passed the most disgusting laws to suit their illegal purposes.  It is my ultimate desire to eradicate them like you flush crap down a toilet.

Worst - California, New Jersey, Washington. All controlled by liberals. New Jersey may have a Republican governor but the legislators are all union, liberal controlled democrats and thieves.

Business in any state has only one criteria.  How big a bribe is the state willing to pay to get business into the state and keep it there.

Don't start a business, don't get a job or an education... Have lots of babies with men you'll never see again and guarantee future generations of democrat voters.


There is but one supreme being, and you must all do hid bidding... That one is Obombo. If you don't vote for Hillary in the next general election the IRS will audit you, the local media will do a smear piece on your family and if you have kids in the public schools the union teachers will give them lower grades, guaranteeing them a harder life in the future.


On the other hand, if you don't speak English and snuck into this country illegally, collect welfare, reproduce like vermin and carry the ebola virus you're on track for a life on easy street courtesy of the vanishing middle class. 


Vote democrat.....  Komrade!

MSN seems to always go for the extremes.   The best here the worst there.  How about finding out where things are fairly well balanced between business and employee?

I thought New York would be on the top-five list. You can't do any business there without kowtowing to at least one of the two extortionist organized crime syndicates: Families with Dons, and the greedy unions.

Worst?  Let me see......all is the answer.  All facts given here or by the government/markets are entirely bogus.

What about Maryland?  8000 businesses have closed their doors ever since O'Malley took office.  He is planning to run for the presidency so he can continue his destruction at the national level.

Alaska is certainly the worse!  Fairbanks, Alaska, is absolutely terrible!  Bananas seem to be the cheapist health food (if you are not alergic).  Water costs more per gallon, than fuel.  However, fuel appears to be the highest per gallon cost, in USA.  Housing market is inflated, & electric costs are stupid.  Medical costs are outrageous!  It appears most everything in Alaska is owned outside!  Commercial fishing gets priority over subsistence fishing.  If you are not a federal, state, city, borough, university, golden valley electric, union, medical, & oil employee, your wages suck; and you are not going to be able to afford housing (shelter).  Native Corporations are subsidized by federal & state monies to stay competitive with outside businesses (& protected).  However, native corporations  pay better than Walmart, Fred Meyers, Safeway, Sams, Sears, fast food businesses, resturants, etc.  The damn mosquitoes are terrible this year, & more tourist are needed.
