Without Texas and California, just think how many arrogant people your own state would have, and you would have to deal with. This way the arrogant (My________ is better than yours!) and loads of illegals can have a place to go and feed off each others attitude into deluding themselves that individual states really are better than others, and leave the rest of us alone.

California takes up 2/3 of the west coast. If 2/3 of the east coast was taken up by one state, we'll call it Massolina and it encompassed every state from Massachusetts to North Carolina. Then you are talking one helluva state.

And it is basically part of Mexico like Cali.
We stole Texas fair and square. When the Mexicans are able to, they can steal it back.

And nothing in this country is part of Mexico. You're talking about a 3rd world hell hole.

HE wasn't the greatest guy in the world, but the president has only so much power.
Watch as Obama becomes the next Bush...The Democrats are in for a hell of a ride, because all the Republicans have to do is sit back and complain.
As History comes forward, Bush will be analyzed and then we can size him up for what he was.

Joe... Please stop flaming.
I know this thread is sort of ignorant, but these immature attacks consisting of merely arrogant unsophisticated words is quiet annoying.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but pose backup for your arguments. Or make judgments on Texas based on a few.
Here are some accomplishments of Texas raised "Dubya" Bush.
1. Put the country in deficit after a surplus
2. Had the largest terrorist attack happen
3. Let New Orleans flood and left them without help for a week
4. Went to war with Iraq based on lies
5. Announced "mission accomplished"
6. Created the Patriot Act, infringed upon our rights
7. Led a nation into the torture of political prisoners
8. Led a nation into the worst economic melt down since 1929.
9. Had the lowest IQ out of any president
need I go on.? I think its pretty safe to say that the Texas raised president is one of the worst ever.

Joe, I will start by saying I do not like Pres. Bush. But, you're post was kinda misleading. You really think 9-11 was Bush's fault? Can you prove he actually has the lowest IQ?(I wouldn't doubt it though)

President Bush did not let New Orleans flood. The state of LA and the Fed gov't let it flood from years and years of turning their cheak to the inevidable.

And........this has nothing to do with this already stupid thread!

If you note I said "Texas raised."
Texas just gets partial blame for the semi production of one of the worst Govenors and Presidents in American History.
