IS THAT FAIR... Some one is moving to TX and must like
it. It is the second most populated State in the country.

I've been there many times. Not crazy driving through it,
but it has it's pluses and some great people and scenery
in certain parts.

They make Ralston Purina dog food out of Lubbock TX if I'm not mistaken though

Have you lived in Texas? IF you have where and when, if you haven't you are basing your opinion on absolutely nothing.

Texas may not be the prettiest state in the union and it might have crappy summer heat, but it also offers diversity, both rural and urban life, some of the best restaurants in the country (yes, as good, if not better than many in Ca) a heck of a lot of millionaires as well and some outstanding universities. And yes, a relatively low cost of living if you don't count property taxes and ins rates.

I agree, there is no reason to put down Texas or the good people of Texas just because Rick Perry is their governor. I think he must do a pretty good job on that level, I just don't know that he is ready to move up.

Yeah, and the guy criticizing our state comes from a state whose governor is famous for making cheesy drama movies and schtooping his maid, thus resulting in an out of wedlock child.

Geez.

What do you expect, the state is bursting at the seams with illegal aliens from Mexico. California is bankrupt because of the same reason. You don't have much room to judge. Seriously.
