Look at his posts. He bashes NY ALL the time. I really don't ever bring up Texas as much as southerners bring up NY.

It isn't me starting it. Just so you know, Moderator cut: see comment

And stop telling fibs, you have already said you have never been to Texas which is a state you bash

You should write down all the things you say on here so you can review them prior to posting so all of us don't catch you trying to lie

I actually just went recently to see the Astros play since my husband is a fan, so yes, I have been

So the same has to be said with you and Houston/Texas. Especially since with most of what you say about it, it's obvious you're really uninformed.
Very true

Upstate NY has been losing jobs for quite some time, and continues to lose jobs , the prices are high because the property tax rates are among the nation's highest , they tax you out of your home's value.

Granted, the horrible economy and the taxes along with the cold weather meant that home prices never went up or spiked.

Some posts above were deleted. A reminder of the following TOS section appears to be needed.

Quote:
Stay on topic. Attempts to hi-jack threads by switching topics or going off topic will be deleted and infractions issued. This is not a chat room - when people hi-jack threads by posting messages that are of interest to only few people, the threads often stop being useful discussions of initial topics.

I agree and you won't regret it. Texas is not a good place to live. Most people are stuck there.

I suggest Colorado, the job market there has gotten much better and the air is fresh and clean. Ir would really help your sinus issues and you can hike and so all the activities you want to all year around.

It's chepaer to live there vs NY.

According to whom? To you? How about we answer the OP's question instead of finding ways to denigrate the state of Texas. Most people LOVE it in Texas.
