Yep.

But at least I have visited Texas and spent some time there. I only comment on places I have been to and spent time in.

and you may notice that I am posting from Missouri.

Fair enough, but you are not the one of the people I was referring to regarding bashing other areas you have never been to. As long as you recognize that it works both ways

You seem like a fair enough person

i know we're only supposed to pick one but it was too hard

i think i'd be miserable if i had to live in new york city or anywhere west of texas

just the idea of living in the west makes me feel homesick. i don't even think i could enjoy a vacation in sunny california without worrying that something would happen to keep me from going home lol

and new york...uhhh...there are some cool people up there, but it's too large, too dense, too old, and too pretentious for my taste. and talk about ugly people oohwee lol

...and why is everybody complaining about south florida weather? when you're in miami you're not supposed to be wearing clothes

I cant imagine living with all that liberalism, not being able to hunt and fish, not being able to own a house. I dont care how much money can be made there, it sounds like a total living nightmare.
New Hampshire my friend. Freest state in the union. They basically have no laws.

Y'know, every airport in the west has daily flights back east.

Re: South Florida weather, there are some of us who don't enjoy being hot.

Too humid.

Too evangelical.

Having lived in D/FW, Austin, Central Texas:

*There are large parts of Dallas that are completely flat.
*DFW is not as humid as Houston, which is VERY humid; nonetheless, it still can get pretty sticky.
*Those evangelical churches are also in the cities. Granted, the cities have more democratic voters than the suburbs, but there are still plenty of evangelicals in the cities.
*No one said AZ is the land of flowing milk and honey, in fact our economy is suffering right now; however, Texas also used to have a sh***y economy as well and bounced back.

true, but i'm curious to know how this can be viewed as a negative. the most that is likely to happen is you get invited to a church once in a while...oh my gosh! lock the doors!
