Nothing against Texas (never been there), but I'll take our "low quality people", lower cost of living and higher quality beaches, thank you.
Well, go to TX, specifically Dallas, and you will see. Didn't mean to offend anyone, but to me its VERY true. To each their own.

Lol, WOW.

"Higher quality people?"

Based on what criteria? Per capita drivers of pick up trucks, inmates killed, and openness and acceptance of progressive ideas and values?

More educated, friendly, progressive, and successful, and more English speaking. Orlando is nothing compared to Dallas. They can actually "plan" a real city than the joke that Orlando is in comparison.

lol wow, so when are you moving then ;-) You are a perfect example of someone who slams a place but stays there it seems. Guess it cant really be as bad here in Orlando as you say it is then.

I wasn't "slamming" a place. I said Dallas has higher quality people and it does. Have you ever lived there? I'll say it again, Orlando is NOTHING compared to Dallas. It will never come close. Don't take it so personally. I have to take care of my debt here, and my plan is to move in a few years. Been in the sun too long have we?

Oh Ok... so long as you stay in the Dallas bubble and don't venture out into "real Texas."

I dont see how you can say to people not to take it personally. You are saying people in central florida are of a lower standard than anywhere else. I and im sure everyone else reading this take great offense to that and you should be ashamed to even say something like that. I think that says a great deal about you that you should say something like that.

I think I've said this before, but everyone who doesn't have a formal education isn't a dolt, and everyone with a bunch of degrees isn't smart.
