All I can say is "pick a struggle."
Could it be that these are two separate groups?

Fort Worth had a higher population than Amarillo, Abilene, or Tyler do now in 1950... What a ridiculous comparison.

Which keeps begging question as to what do they base these claims on, exactly.

This thread is just like this past election: I've learned that A LOT of people really don't know much about this city at all... which is why it's u n d e r r a t e d.

My family moved from West Texas to Irving in 1965 and still at the same old house in South Irving. I have a buddy who lives in Fort Worth that I look forward to visiting a couple of times a month on weekends. Yall have such a wonderful town to live in. Love, love Cowtown!

It's got it all...the big city amenities, TCU, the kind of pace that lets you smell the roses and enjoy life, its attractive, great downtown, history and charm, warm generous people ... The quality of life is there in spades.

Its understated elegance in the best sense of the word. Dallas is always trying hard to impress and I think there is some insecurity that may be behind that. Fort Worth seems more comfortable in its skin to me. I admire yalls town so much. God think about poor me - I've been in Irving since 65!

Then you either didn't read my post, don't comprehend it, or are deliberately misinterpreting it.

Fort Worth is a fine city. I lived over by TCU for many years. Got married at the Marty Leonard Chapel and had my reception at the Worthington. I have a number of clients in Fort Worth. Love it there and had a great time there when I was single.

But go back and read what I posted. S L O W L Y

I'll summarize it for you -- again -- if it was just Fort Worth, and Dallas had never existed -- Fort Worth would not be the major city it is today. It would be a regional hub, like Tyler is for East Texas, Lubbock is for the Panhandle, or Abilene for West Central Texas.

The inferiority complex some have about Fort Worth is quite funny. I don't get it, and probably never will.

- I wasn't replying to your post...

- Maybe you should read MY post S L O W L Y when I ask WHAT do you base that on. All you did was repost the same thing you said, not answer the question... You claim Fort Worth wouldn't be the major city it is without Dallas and I'm asking you what you're basing that on... Do you understand?

- If you're going to be a smart*ss, I suggest you either quote the correct person or go back and try to understand what's being asked, first.

You keep going on about this "inferiority complex" crap when all you're doing is feeding into stereotypes and making assumptions.

Come correct, dude.

I don't think so, ft.worth has Dallas to prop it up. San Antonio is the scum of the slum in Texas.

This one is up there competing with some of the most asinine comments ever posted. At least of the ones I've read.

There's truth to the first half of their comment.

But yeah, the part about San Antonio is ridiculous.

We literally don't NEED Dallas for anything... The fact that you felt the need to say that though basically raises the point of this post.
