Californians are busy packing their bags for a move to Texas, Nevada or Arizona. Why?

Is it possible that one state has managed to top every 50-state category on the following shameful list?

Highest taxes (gasoline, sales and top bracket of income taxes)
Lowest bond rating
Highest poverty rate (at 23.5%, the home of 1/3 of those in poverty in U.S.)
Highest unemployment rate (tied with Mississippi and Nevada at 9.6%)
Highest energy costs
Worst state to do business (as judged by Chief Executive magazine 8 years running)
Most cities going bankrupt
Prison system so poorly run it has been taken over by a federal judge
