It's also ignorant to assume we all act like one person, seriously...lol. This thread is really cracking me up with the things some people say. This is just one example of why I don't agree with a thing with many people in the south. I'm done with this thread.
Funny, that.

Says alot about you insulting a whole state when you and others you talk to have never been too. We all know you have never been here and that you are a troll on this thread. Not too worried about the south Bronx, come down here to Fondren SW with your homies and run your mouth ok son?

I've asked relatives what they thought of Houston or somebody from Houston, and they are all in agreement in saying "loudmouth." Every person that I've met from Houston was this way. So maybe this explains the negative comments directed at the place.

This by the way clashes with Chicago, which will always be one of the top two real cities in this country. Chicago and NY stand in a league of their own. Houston doesn't compare and can't measure up to the long and storied histories behind these two great cities. Also, the loudmouth, bragging, swaggering, unsophisticated nature of Houston clashes deeply with Chicago's sense of great strength, character, substance, and quiet quality. Illinois is a great state, one that has produced two great men as Presidents, Lincoln and Obama. I don't need to mention that Texas produced the village idiot, the worst man to reside in the oval office in the history of this nation. Dubya hails from Texas and remains the most undignified, ill-bred, badly-conditioned, ill-informed, blundering, babbling, bungling imbecile to reside in the White House in history. I think it's time for people in Houston and Texas to "do more and talk less" as this idiot comes running back home after his failed presidency. I personally don't appreciate the fact that Texas is always painted RED come election time, underlying the notion that the state is behind the times. No offense to those who are enlightened in the state, but apparently there are not enough to offset those who aren't.

Texas is apparently a state "where dreams take wing", where "rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?" Illinois is the "Land of Lincoln"...and don't you forget it.

Dubya, as you so eloquently call him, is from Conneticutt and was educated at Yale, an elitist ivy league school. He resides here in Texas now because he likes the free wheeling independent nature of the state and the live and let live hardworking lifestyles of the people here.

Illinois is no longer the "Land of Lincoln", it is the "Land of corrupt politicians" now and has been for the better part of 100 years.

Illinois has the most corrupt government in the 50 states. There are a few shining stars (Lincoln and Obama), but seriously look at the government history in that state. The politicians children usually are next in line. Kind of like kings and queens.

You want to know why Houston has a chip on it's shoulder? It's because of your post right here. If there are only two real cities. What does that make the rest of the nation. Also, outside of these boards, most Chicagoans do not hate Houston and most Houstonians do not hate Chicago. In fact, Houston is receiving many Chicago transplants and treating Houston like it is Miami to New York.

You really think his hands are that clean? Unless he was blind, deaf and dumb, he knew what was what. His chief of staff certainly is uncharacteristically mum on the subject.
