Can you blame us?

Obama is twiddling his thumbs, creating new scandals & wars every day while 52,000 illegals are crossing our border so we have to take matters into our own hands.

In the meantime his left wing goons like Nancy Polosi say "they are our future" let them in, feed them, house them, & give them Obama Care.

One might even take your job someday how would you like that?

Northern California is at 5.2% unemployment, even little ole Tyler is doing better at 4.8%

For larger metros, Houston & D/FW are at 4.6% unemployment.

Midland, Texas leads the nation at #1 with 2.3% unemployment.

Conservative politics is working. Liberals can't stand it.

Can't wait for the 3rd quarter numbers to come out. Texas is gonna kill it yet again.

If Conservative politics are working for Texas, then why is the per capita GDP for the state below the national average? Doesn't sound like it's working out for everyone...

Texas' conservative politics is the reason none of our cities filed for bankruptcy during the economic recession like "other" unmentionable states & you know who I'm talking about.
Texas is in an economic bubble. It will be hilarious to see the hand-wringing when that bubble bursts.

Below the national average? Hardly.

Texas represents the national average per capita GDP.

By your logic, Alaska is an awesome state to live in.

Per capita GDP is meaningless.

Texas has the largest, fastest growing economy with the lowest unemployment rate in America, period.

Lyle Lovett was the first concert I ever went to. 2003, I believe. Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. I was 13.
