They wish it was. It will never be. There is only one California. I've been to Texas. It sucks unless youre into the cowboy, humidity, tornado, bible politics stuff.

Did you know that you'll only be pulled over and cited in Texas for throwing a beer can out on the highway from your pickup if there's still beer in it?

The Texas budget deficit is now proportionally the same or even greater than California. When I read the heading, that is what I thought it was referring to.

Aren't bigoted comments fun? I sincerely doubt you've ever set foot in Texas before.

I don't know why other than being affordable or country that anyone would. I don't want to come off as ignorant or anything, but it's hot, humid, flat, buggy, tornados, hurricanes, cows and farms for miles. I don't see the appeal other than the affordability and country lifestyle.
This must be that famous California tolerance and open-mindedness at work. Have you ever traveled outside of California before?
