If Texas had more raw material locations, I'd move my business there in a heart beat.

Huh? You aren't making any sense. Try to stick to the subject which is that Red Staters families care more about their children's future than Blue Staters.
For more on Blue Staters betraying their own kids futures ....Google:
"Pension Spiking". Once you understand the ramifications of "Pension Spiking" you won't be so quick to admit to being a Democrat during the Obama era.
That's not the subject, and not what I was posting about, dimbulb. Naturally, as a rightie, you tell vicious lies instead of seeking out the truth.

Yeah, they probably don't grow that many lemons down there, do they? Plenty of sugar, but not enough lemons. That wouldn't do your lemonaid stand much good, would it?:)

Pension spiking is a real problem, it has been for 30 years. It's robbing peter to pay paul. Pension spiking is the process whereby public sector employees grant themselves large raises or otherwise artificially inflate their compensation in the years immediately preceding retirement in order to receive larger pensions than they otherwise would be entitled to receive. This inflates the pension payments to the retirees and, upon retirement of the "spikee", transfers the burden of making payments from the employee's employer to a public pension fund. This practice is considered a significant contributor to the high cost of public sector pensions. Several states including Illinois have passed laws making it more difficult for employees to spike their pensions.[1]Wake up and smell the coffee.

In case you haven't been paying attention, my business is directly related to many of the threads I post to, such as guns and machine shop. Now, your condom shop has no bearing whatsoever on any thread except maybe abortion. Run along now, they need the clueless over there.

So long as you claim it's a lie, you open it up for discussion and clarification. Stop using the word lie and you can slink away unscathed.

my vote for the two most obnoxious topix posters goes to barefoot and the professor. Both are real assets to their party, and valuable contributors to the well being of the US.

Ranks by whommm? Some liberal writer who doesn't like Bush or Perry? Sorry pinhead....Texas has the top two public high schools in the nation with four in the top 11 and are ahead of California AND New York AND Pennsylvania in education. http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/feature...
You checked those claims....with whom?? Austin is very conservative and everyone republican and democrat get along very well. The democrats there don't make up fabrications as they do in other states.
Texas is NOT even in the top ten most polluted states, mr. research. Your own liberal cnbc proves that fact. BTB...check the date on this..also noticed pencil..vania is #2 of the most polluted states. Better put your brain in gear before putting your mouth in motion...boy. LMAO http://www.cnbc.com/id/48944108/America039s_1...
I've seen some stupid fabricated posts on these forums, but this one is hilarious. Midland has very clean air by the way.
Texas also leads the nation in green energy production, research and the EPA list three Texas cities as the top in green energy vehicle usage...natural gas and hybrids. We certainly hope you boys catch up with us someday....but with your debt, corrupt demrat politicians....I doubt it.
Very funny! I've missed this special kind of playtime.

Given a choice between manufacturing guns and condoms, I'd gladly get into the Rubber Johnny business. At least I'd be helping prevent more of your kind from being born...:)

You, Georgia, and 'rest of us' haven't got a full complement of 100 IQ points BETWEEN you. A squawker, a stalker, and a cracker. What a trio! Next to you three, the Three Stooges were intellectuals...:)
