You have to understand that you are talking about experiences from Victoria. You will find many acceping "intellectuals" in cities like Dallas, Houston, Austin etc. Just like you will find many unaccepting fools in some California cities like Stockton, Fresno, Bakersfield etc. You need to venture out a little more and you would be happy you did

Wow, this was actually kind of hard, I personally wouldn't like to live in either state, don't have a liking to either state. But thinking about it there is no way I would want to live in Texas.

This post is brought to you by someone who is from the most crime ridden, welfare milking capital of the country. At least you could say you are from NYC and not mention the Bronx. I would never admit I was from there either.

Regarding Texas, don't you think you should take time out from the projects and visit before you pass judgement on a whole state?

California, without question, as long as it's not the central valley, any rural areas, or OC. San Francisco preferred.

I cut you some slack, but not cause we talk odd.
We talk more normal then most people in NYC. So maybe the Nee-ew Joy-see isn't the correct english accent.
The accent does exist, but you've exposed yourself to the fact that you know very little about Texas, which probably means you've never actually visited.
If you came here you would know that in fact that very little people talk like that.
Especially when you go into the cities.
I wouldn't say rednecks either, considering that Texas is one of the four states which is minority Majority... You also realize that half the Texans of this forum arn't even white...and the ones who are white, half of them are California Transplants...
the other 3? Well...NY isn't one of them...
you know, I'm going to paraphrase Glenn Beck, granted it makes me look neo-con...which I sort of am, but he is wayy to con for me...
But he said that NYers think that NYC is the real US, that anything across that lousy river until you reach San Fran is scary red-neck territory...
You know, I actually thought that was a rediculous statement until I've read alot of what some people have posted .
But, you go ahead say that. Ignorance is bliss, you hurt only yourself.
and a few of these Texas are mad, but thats ok...because once they got off the computer, they don't go to bed thinking "I hate this dude because he thinks Texas is full of rednecks"
Knowledge is power, and when I say knowledge I mean more then a book from your 8th grade teacher...when I say power I don't nessessarily mean the ability to say something and have it done because people are afraid of you, I mean influential power...you sir, lack power.
