I'd rather go to hell than to Texas

I have a marketing professor that gave a "lecture" this morning that was basically just right wing talking points about how much better Texas is than California.  I am pretty sure she even just stole a slide for her presentation from Real Clear Politics.  She is normally a good teacher but goddamn I want to report her.  I can only imagine what she would do if she found out a liberal teacher was bad mouthing Texas.

Anyone in California that wants to move to Texas, PLEASE GO NOW

/we won't have to hear your incessant whining anymore
//and I'm sure you'll enjoy hearing how much they love all the California people moving in and f*cking things up

I am pretty sure that most visions people have of Utopia don't include thousands of square miles of nothing but scrub brush and desert.

That's a pretty unconvincing list - a bunch of stuff you can find better examples of in other states.

And ... the Bush daughters brought Southern class to the White House?  Well, if that's what you want to call it.

I refuse to go there for fear of running into one of my exes.

Texas might be all right if you got rid of all the Texans.*  Tell you what, give it back to Mexico and call me in three generations.

*The downside to this is they would spread over the remaining 49 with their incessant whining about how awesome Texas was.

As an OU alumni it's hard for me to say nice things about Texas. Better there than anywhere on the East Coast.

Also, all the Liters from Texas that will spend the next four hours blowing up my Fark notifications, relax, I am only kidding, Texans are wonderful people.  Trust me, I was born in Tennessee which is lot like Texas, only skinnier and slightly dumber.
 
2013-02-07 03:36:29 PM  
Ehh I love living in Texas. Won't ever pretend it's the best place around, but there's certainly worse. I can't stand Perry, hardcore conservatards, or the religious fundies, but every state has shiatty politicians and fundies.

I do love most of the people here, especially out in the country area. You know you're in Texas when everyone waves to each other on a county road.
 
2013-02-07 03:40:15 PM  
If Texas is a utopia then fark utopia.
 
2013-02-07 03:44:17 PM  
I like to think Canada is the polar opposite of Texas, in just about every way that counts. I guess we share... pine trees?..., but I think that's about it.

Got no desire to visit, kthxbye.

Texas is awesome except for one little thing.

The weather.

Hot and humid as hell in the summer, ice storms in the winter and a constant risk of tornadoes.

My guess is that all the people biatching about Texas had never been there.
I would love to move to Texas if it weren't for all the illegals.

Ya know, they almost sold me.  But then I remembered #3 and saw #36, and I was done.

County road? Hell, it's the norm even on US 180 out here!

I heard they have yellow roads.

TACOS IN THE MORNING. Tacos all the time

When tacos are on a bagel, you can eat tacos any time.

Ohhh yea, pretty much anything that's not a major highway in a city. Forget waving, you only need 1 finger for those roads.

Last I was down you're way I noticed it didn't happen as much once you got as close as Brenham. Until then 36 was a pretty friendly stretch of road.

Meh... it used to be a lot better. The environmental laws suck, schools are farked, there are $30k millionaires all over the place, fundies are trying to impose their morality on everyone, it's hot 85% of the year, etc.

It's still not a bad place to live but it's not as awesome as some Texans think it is. Except Houston. That place is farking awful. There is nothing redeeming about it

There is a lot of cool shiat in Houston...the biggest downside to the place is the lack of a mass transit system. It's so freakin' huge that getting around is just too much of a pain.

I drove across Texas once.

No matter where you were, it was always another 400 miles to El Paso.

Metro-Rail is great if you're wanting to stay around the Reliant/Downtown/Museum District area. Also works perfectly if you have to be at the medical center. But yea, otherwise the mass transit sucks ass.

The humidity in Houston is awful. Always seems like it's at 90%. The only nice thing about Houston traffic wise was it seemed that they got roads built a lot faster there. Of course, that money would have been better spent in commuter rail

They had their chance with the Katy expansion...and farked it up.

Haven't been up the North Freeway in a while eh?*

*Unless it is finally done, I don't remember a time when it wasn't under construction...but I haven't been on it in 10 years or so.
