I know you are being funny, but you're funny wrong. It doesn't matter where one is born; it matters where they're raised.

Yes, and he was also a crooked politician, but I guess that's nothing new when it comes to politicians.

And I have been there. It was quite nice, until you left the tourist areas. I consider places with overly corrupt government agencies, extremely high crime, high inflation, undrinkable water, rampant kidnappings HELL HOLES!
Do us all a favor the next time you go down there, "flipper." Stay in the tourist areas, and forget mixing with the locals. You are the perfect example of the "Ugly American" that really has no business leaving his little corner of the world.

Give us back to Mexico?? Read your history buddy! Texas BEAT Mexico and became our own nation. We were simply annexed into the USA. Sort of like when a big city annexes a suburb.

No true red blooded TEXAN will ever allow that to happen.

Why, because I like to know I'm safe when on vacation? Stupid me!

You must have a sweet spot for Mexico or something, I don't think their domestic issues are any secret to the general public.

Texas isn't important, and to suggest that it is is a gross, gross misconception of the United States. It's a suburban, back-office economy on which we currently waste a lot of water.

I'm not so sure about California. It's just one of the biggest states. It has the advantage on tech and venture capital, but other than that it's just another place.

Be careful, when you bash suburban back office economies, it might affect you and your job as grill man at Mcdonalds
