More like if you're uneducated/unskilled and need a job, go to Texas.

I'd rather live in NY, FL, or CA than TX, if we're talking about large, populated states.

Accept Christ, be saved. Move to Texas, find a job.

...a lot of similarities there.
Why do you assume that the OP is a Texan (I'm not)? Just posting an article I read, for people's information. You can read it, heed it, or not. As with anything.

Or, if you're not only uneducated/unskilled, but also culturally challenged and feel most comfortable surrounded by bland, sterile, uniform, strip-mall suburbia... go to Phoenix!

More like:

Get a CDL, your HazMat certification, go to work in the oilfield and make $80,000 plus your first year. It goes upward from there.

We're not just talking about large, populated states though. We're also talking about business friendly states, states with no income tax and a low cost of living. If you factor in those things as well, Texas wins all the way around.

Well, of course and I want people to settle anywhere that meets their own personal needs and goals - it doesn't have to be Texas. In fact, I sort of hope it's NOT Texas - we've got enough immigration (legal and otherwise) to more than meet our needs.
