I agree that Florida has more culture than Texas [ie. Salvador Dali museum in St Pete]. When Texans talk culture they mean the "Texas two-step" [square dancing ] & country music. Also, it is not possible for a state that has so many Republicans to have culture. And any state that produces a man like Bush has to be over-run with yahoos.

Florida is much more interesting & much more scenic than anywhere in Texas [ever check out the swampy beaches in Texas?

So Texas has no scenery? Florida has beaches, which ARE beautiful, but other than that Florida is flat, flat, flat and has little other to offer.

In addition to Synopsis post about Texas having no scenery, I am going out on a limb and say you know very little about the state. First off, Bush is NOT FROM TEXAS. Did you forget that Jeb Bush was the govenor of Florida, though? BTW, did you know that Texas has the 2nd most liberals in the United States? BTW, since when was the beaches from Corpus to SPI to Brownsville swampy?

Texas two-step? Country music?

Sure, we have that, but to proclaim that as the entirety of Texas culture is rather myopic. Houston has the enormous MFA, the Menil Collection, the Museum of Natural History (the first place in the world Lucy was exhibited outside of Ethiopia), and score of other museums and art galleries, many of which are world renowned. Dallas is very similar.

Florida has a museum dedicated to an artist that no legitimate art critic even takes seriously. Outside of college freshmen dorm room walls, no one really cares about Dali. Florida's culture is pop culture. Without Mickey Mouse and MTV, Florida has no more culture than Nebraska.

And BTW, I am a transplanted Okie from Oklahoma. Texas has TONS of scenery from the piny woods of East Texas, to the hill country in central Texas, to the great mountains in the Southwest, including El Paso and her great heritage, to the Southern plains and the high plains of West Texas from Lubbock to Amarillo.

Texas is full of diverse landscapes, with far, far more variety than exists in Florida. Texas is a fantastic and beautiful state.

Inferiority complex and jealous that our state isn't tanking like the crackhouse republic of kalifornia

Every time I think of kalifornia and all the problems the Liberals are riddling that state with it makes me laugh
