Are you so blind or so ignorant that you dont see the missery your state lives, and bull about fortune 500 is only a fairy tale, visit California and you'll see the difference, but anyway I think Texas should secede the union; its too expensive to feed so many redneck, and as I said, please just go become part of Mexico, not too much difference between Mexican peasants and Texans Rednecks.

Texas is so messerable that the elderly, handicaped, dissabled and the ones in need are still force to work at walmart for only pennies.
But of course that these people are from redneck origins and dont really understand the nature of their missery, talk about civilize states like N.Y - CA - ILL. just to name a few where people are valued.

relax champ.

the fortune 500 is factual (i know you prolly hate facts) all you have to do is go to fortune.com and do some searching, should not be to difficult. thats all.

im not going to get into a pi$$ing contest with you at all. because i already won!! you see, i love texas (im not from here) so i am happy! no state taxes, i like the heat, i get to carry a gun, low unemployment rate (4.4 compared to cali 6.9 http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/lists/state_... ), and for the most part the people are extremely nice. now you on the other hand, for whatever reason (does not matter to me) live in texas....and by your own admission dislike it! so you see, i wake up happy and you wake up in a place where you dont want to be!! furthermore, as we have not seceded (yet) and your are still in America, you can chose to move!!!!

your comment = low unemployment rate (the highest champ and I when I mention this is because I am a top manager making way more $$$ than you texans here in Texas, but I have a wide view that probably a redneck like you dont have and that is this place is in missery.)
And by the way if you are German (I doubt it) Texans dont welcome Europeans they think you are homosexuals.

cherry or grape Kool Aid sir?

wasnt chicago just named the number one nanny city in the country? didnt gov paterson just issue a severe warning about the economy in NY? and we all now cali's foreclosure problems...hope you did not have coin in indymac or i hope countrywide wasnt really expecting the citizens from cali to actually pay their mortgages!!!! i will agree, if you want to rely on a union for job security texas is not the place for you. if you want want the chance to win a jackpot lawsuit, texas is not for you (tort reform here). if you want to pay high taxes texas is not for you? if you are a corporation and you love high taxes, texas is not for you. if you want a lot of red tape, texas is not for you? you get my point!

ask the people at NVG or magna whatever you call it today in about six months how they are valued!!!!!! do you even realize how many manu jobs have been lost in ny over the last 30 years? ask those people how much the union valued them!! they may have valued their dues!!!!!!!!!!
