It does nothing of the sort. Show me where I said California as a state would take any action whatsoever. This entire thread is predicated on the President waging war on a state in retaliation for whatever. These actions would affect virtually everybody in said state. You don't think even Trump-loving companies wouldn't react to an assault on their livelihoods? California wouldn't have to do shit. Grassroots civil reaction would take care of it all.

As for Google, who knows? If Trump's stormtroopers acted to seize Google's assets, it would signal an escalation that would make Fort Sumter look like a kiddy spat in the sandbox. At that point we are so far down the rabbit hole of fascism that any action against the Feds is justified.
