Tricky Chicken: I can't get (or git for Texans) the article to open. Could someone post a synopsis (unknown word for Texans) so I can determine my level of outrage and/or amusement?
Cubicle Jockey: People of color.
EyeballKid: And what? Be chased out by people fearing your talking devil box will teach their children how to dance to that heathen negro jazz music?How many home-schooled IT experts are there, any way?
BojanglesPaladin: I don't like Midland/Odessa. Without the oil it would be a barren, empty stretch of nothing. With the oil, it's a barren, empty stretch of nothing full of tract housing, McMansions, and golf courses waiting to die the moment the sprinklers stop.
Infernalist: In all seriousness, the IT industry isn't overflowing with qualified personnel. Sure, some of the heads of those companies might be tempted by simple stupid greed to move to a state like Texas because of its lower taxes, but most of their employees would not follow them.And Texas itself is not exactly the Land of Milk and Honey when it comes to educated folk. Let's face it, most of them are just a few steps above being functionally retarded. And they're 'proud' of it.There's a reason that the only place in Texas where IT flourishes is Austin, the most liberal city in the state...

Nemo's Brother: vpb: Yes, that's our strategy for turning Texas into a blue state.How else are you going to get someone educated to move to Texas? No one with any sort of talent or skill is going to move there by choice.Liberals are truly a cancer. They fark up their states (think California, Illinois) beyond repair and flee. They then try to turn their refuge into the same shiat hole they abandoned.

impaler: Marcus Aurelius: Umm, subby, I don't want to rain on your outrage, but this appears to be a tax on professional computer services consumed by end users within the state. They already tax software sales.But those professional computer services will now have to commute from Texas everyday.
