What your saying does not make any since at all? Thats just like taking the New York Stock Exchange out of NYC. DWong simply put you are a hater because only a hater would take away from a metropolitian area the very thing that makes the metropolitian area special.

As I say, the lower costs of living in Dallas are a symptom of its superior economic culture, and its superior economic culture is a symptom of its generally superior overall level of civilization. California's economic collapse is a symptom of its overall level of collective insanity, as evidenced by the AB32 law trying to ban carbon dioxide. As if California was not part of the world weather system and bathed in carbon dioxide emissions from China and India.

Since Dallas is approaching 7 million people, slightly more populous that the San Francisco-San Jose consolidation, there aren't very many comparable metros to compare to Dallas.
Ok ok, climate, but what was a close 2nd?

Chi does have high taxes, yet has high cost of living. DFW is AFFORDABLE. Like most American's, we go where we can put a roof over our head first. Well, smart American's at least

Yes banning carbon dioxide.... CA politicians and political system as a whole are a joke.

Yes, I"ve been drinking the hatorade today.

Makes no sense? Take the NY stock exchange out of their and move it to anywhere, NY will still be NY and people will still want to move there okie?

All I'm saying again is.... DFW's main draw is it's economic growth and affordability. 97% of the people don't have trust funds or large stockpiles of cash so they go where they can live comfortably. Democratic states have completely screwed economic growths and pretty much thrown out the working class leaving the poor and very rich. Ask anyone in the other major metros how hard is it to raise a family there.... the family in DFW, can make out just fine and live comfortably w/ $$$ to spare.

Back to my point, if it was $$$ to live in DFW I don't think it would be on top of most people choice. Happen to read the article surveying people on where they would like to live and work and NOT live and work. I won't say which list a certain city fell in.

That's all .... and just my opinion.

Well, at least you have a sane view of how crackpot the carbon dioxide delusion is. Since it is a natural part of the biological cycle of life for plants and animals, trying a vague effort to ban it would probably kill off the planet's plant life.

DFW had the highest numerical growth in population last year. That is some evidence that makes you a liar. You're welcome to your opinion, probably because nobody else wants it.

Let's get back to helping out Chicago friend with his decision. Chicago has some advantages over DFW, but if its shortcomings have made him want to leave, I am sure DFW would replace much of what he has in Chicago, especially with the DART expansion, the new urban areas in Uptown and Oak Lawn, and the massive expansion of the theatres in the Arts District.

Don't forget that Chicago's value is primarily a consequence of its huge population, about 9.5 million in the metro, so some little tank-town burg with two or three million won't make up to him. Perhaps DFW with 6-7 millions can satisfy him as a metro, while giving him the weather he wants.

Essentially, he's moving from the 3rd largest US metro to the 4th largest, not that much of a step down.

Evidence that makes me a liar? Uh oh... Master Poster someone just shot a personal attack.

DFW has the highest growth and for the reason I think I've said 100times.
Shalom.

And vice-versa - I love Chicago and the people are friendlier than NYC. But most Texans would not really like living among those folks and we don't know how to use tire chains and snow shovels.
