So......

Why do YOU choose to clog our freeways and drive far everyday polluting the earths atmosphere in BORING traffic?
Because not all of us can afford that 400,000, 1200 square foot home in the Heights

Because not all of us can afford to pay 10 dollars a pound for olives at Whole Foods. Furthermore, we wouldn't want to offend inner loopers by clogging the freeways on weekends trekking to Central Market.

I always ask the lady at the counter at Burger King to **** on my onion rings, so I don't know what you are talking about.

I've been in education a long time and can assure you the Bellaire/Lamar high schools, Pershing Middles and so forth are equally as boring as suburban schools. The only really exciting schools in the city are Attucks Middle, Yates High etc. Something tells me you wouldn't send your kids to these schools.

I suppose those high quality houses in River Oaks are made of some sort of magical pixie wood that doesn't destroy forests?

Because Obama will bail me out, you dumbo.

How can you say these things when inner city Houston offers all that and more?

YOU are the reason why Houston's air is so bad and why your great grand children are going to be growing up in a world full of un-breathable oxygen.

YOU are the reason why our atmosphere is dwindling and exposing us to extreme climate change, do YOU even remember when it snowed HERE IN HOUSTON 2 years in a ROW?

YOU are the reason why Walmart and every other major corporation is killing small businesses and taking over the world.

YOU are the reason why public transportation sucks so much here in Houston, I can't even take Metro rail anywhere because YOU morons keep making right turns where you're not supposed to and crashing into our trains.

YOU keep complaining about illegal immigrants yet YOU bought a house built by them, YOU eat food cooked by them, and YOU even have your house cleaned by them.

I could go on and on, but this is just a warning, if affordable long range electric cars don't exist in 10 years, yall are screwed.
Obviously you aren't in sales. If you were, you'd be begging the lady at Burger King to **** on your onion rings just so you could have a little more variety that day.
