Texas is still the fastest growing state in the nation, something must be bringing them here! Dallas is not conservative, you must have not been to Dallas in a long time.

Yes a pro business state is very good and Dallas is growing on me; maybe moreso now that the awful stadium is gone, now what to do with the new one....

Did you know that there are theme parks all over the state of Texas and many clubs and museums and parks as well?

Did you know that Houston is currently expanding their light rail system and will have over 40 miles of rail in 2014?

Did you know that you have eastern cities close up shop at 2AM as well.

When was the last time you been to Texas IF you ever been there in the first place?

Speaking of 'all backwards'! It's hard to make any sense out of that post.

Whattheheck?

Okay I get it, you're from the Northeast or whatever. That's cool. So you want to see mirror copies of the cities in the Northeast down here in Texas? Yeahhh, that's not what Texas is about man.
Texas is about being Texas, not the next NY, or the next Pennsylvania, or even the next Illinois.
Yeahh the downtowns shut down very soon here after work actually, but have you been to Uptown Houston, near the Galleria, last I checked it's pretty lively there. In fact ever since I was a little kid, it's been pretty lively there.
The Olympics? Last I checked, Chicago never hosted it either, does that mean it's a lesser of a city than Atlanta or where ever the heck you're from? NO, it doesn't, many great American cities and States have yet to host the Olympics.
Yeahh Texas doesn't have any casino's but know why? Ever looked into why it doesn't?
Because that causes a lot of family problems, and the earlier governors in Texas were against things like casino's that brought pain and suffering to it's households, so they made casinos within state boundaries illegal. Does that make Texas wrong? No it doesn't, to care for it's residents doesn't make it a bad place to live.
Vegas has a different style to it, it's successful in what it does but that's Nevada, not Texas.
Have you looked into the rail expansion that Houston is undergoing, it's doubling the rail line, and all that within the first 9 years of it's existence.
I'm sorry that you're from the Northeast, and LOVE to travel with your subways, and rails, but here in Texas, we make good with our automobiles, that's the way it's done around here. Don't like it? Then leave, but don't complain, because you chose to live here, that's your fault, if you can't adapt with an open mind, then get the heck out. (Sorry for the rudeness) But it's people like you that give American's a bad name in general.
The hell? Why the devil are you complaining about the government here, yeah it's republican, any elementary school kid could tell you that, you're an idiot. Don't like a red state then freakin don't live there, and then complain about it online like the way you're doing... grow the heck up.
Every city/state/region has it's importance. And I'm glad Texas isn't another NY, we're original, and that's a good thing. Learn to think with an open mind it'll do you some good in the future buddy...
Oh and one last thing, last I checked, Texas is very progressive, in fact one of the most progressive states out there.

(Insert Poster #2 showing picutre of trees and Poster #1 showing picture of Farm land outside of Dallas).
Poster #1: Look at how ugly Dallas is. Houston is more better/more liberal because the prostitutes and bath houses are out in the open as opposed to hidden
Poster #2: Everything about Houston sucks because it isnt Lakewood. Everything outside 635 sucks because it isnt Lakewood.
Poster #1: Tyler is so progressive and liberal. Its the best city in Texas and its not conservative at all. But there are too many holy rollers, rednecks, and churches in Dallas.
Poster #3: Dallas is the best! Fort Worth sucks! Ive never even been but once! I like to use exclamation points at the end of every sentence!
Poster #4: Dallas and Houston are great, Austin sucks. Austin is such a backwater nazi town. I hate it.
Houstonite: Houston will pull away from Dallas because I live in Houston and like it better.
Dallasite: DFW will pull away from from Houston because I live there and like it better

Sorry, but I couldnt resist!

The cycle never ends!
Quite entertaining indeed!

After you have learned proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation, then you may refer to us as sorry, country bumkin, and hillbilly. It seems too many of us lame, country, Texas hillbillies are much more skilled in the english language than your northeastern butt! You're probably a disgrace to your own region. Read a book and brush up on your english and manners.

Yeah and he's here calling Houston a "Hillbilly honky tonky whatever" I haven't even heard of half the words he just used to describe Houston. With his grammar being the worst I've seen on this thread so far, he's trying to tell us about how Houston is 'hillbilly' like.

Then he continues to make himself look like an idiot by saying, "I'm not speaking just for Houston, but for Texas all together". You don't live here, you don't get the ability to say "I'm speaking for all of Texas", because I sure as hell know Texan's would find problems in his claims and statements.
If people can defend their cities in the north and west then I sure as hell can defend my city in Texas.

Ah I'm sorry Bgrn for bothering you about this, but yeahhh people like him just shouldn't say anything at all. They sound stupid from the moment they open their mouth.
