Default Dallas GA

[FONT=Verdana]We moved here from Tulsa 2002 before 2002 we were in Houston for 17 years. I have lived in Ohio, California, Virginia, South Carolina, Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, Oklahoma and now Georgia. All have had their pluses and minuses, GA is without a doubt on average the nicest, now if only I could go Jeepin but alas, not here. Dallas is on the west side, west of Marietta, It is one of the fastest growing counties in the US--or at least it was. We have 2 months of hot and 2 of cold the rest of the time generally nice. If you have any questions just e-mail me or PM. [/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]As this is not my love, and I am an "Official Greeter" on a router forum I won't be visiting here very often, and that is not because I don't like this forum, just other commitments.[/FONT]

Also I've heard a lot about the astronomical energy bills there regarding AC and heating.

[FONT=Verdana]Georgia has no state income tax? I wonder who I was making the contribution to the last 7 years. Yes it does have a state income tax, so if you live here might want to check into that![/FONT]

I could've sworn they were talking about Texas not having any state income tax in that post, and explaining the high property taxes.

The city of Dallas is majority-minority now, isn't it? It's about 25% Af-Am, 35% Hispanic now. The suburbs OTOH would probably be more white and conservative. But even then, I find many suburbs in DFW to be a bit more diverse than ATL's. I don't think there are majority-African-American areas on the scale of South Dekalb or South Fulton in the DFW area. I know the "Best Southwest" suburbs would come closest, but not quite.

My question is, would Collin County be anymore conservative than say, Cobb County or North Fulton?

My post is a typical response because it's the truth. Go back and read what you wrote in the first place. Your post is more stereotypical than I've seen in a while. I didn't say Dallas wasn't conservative but you make it sound like a GOP haven or something. Dallas is more diverse than that as is Atlanta, so just take your pidgeon-holed narrow mind and move it along.

Collin County is a more conservative and white area of the metroplex. This is an area that I consider leans more conservative and less diverse. It's not quite like that in Dallas county and Dallas proper. That pretty much goes with any large cities. Larger cities tend to be more diverse whether it be racially, politically, culturally etc. So reading some of these gross exaggerations tends to send off my BS meter. Back to your question though I'd say yes, Collin County is more conservative than Cobb and Fulton County and yes, Dallas is majority-minority with 23.8% of the population black, 2.7% asian and 42.4% hispanic or latino.
