Well here we go again. . .
« on: September 03, 2019, 02:07:05 PM »
Once more I've listened to the b.s. spewed about Texas from folks
that have parked their butts here from other regions.

This one is a woman that has lived here for over 40 years, moved from
a northeastern state, and is still unhappy that she's here and not "back home".
this time it was ". .these tech-suhns and their darned guns. . . "
well if it weren't for Texans and guns, everyone here would be in northernmost
mexico and speaking spanish.
then i get the " . . gawd it's so damned hot here, and there's never any snow. . ."
from one of her adult kids.  well boo-blankety blankin'- hoo. . .
Just me, but i've never been able to figure someone would would pack up and
come to a place they really don't like and leave what they describe as a relative
paradise. this after they've helped to eff up the political climate and infrastructure
of the place they came from. to me, that just shows how effing stupid someone
is to leave a place they love so dearly and come to a place they can't stand at all.

I blame the "Dallas" television show for all this b.s.
a whole lot of them got the impression somehow that the southfork ranch
was right in downtown dallas, and that we all rode around and checked on our
oil wells in mercedes sedans. really. i've heard people actually say that.

well I won't go so far as to bad-mouth Tejas, but.....having grown during my formative years in the beautiful State of Kalifornia I've gotta say that "IF" :

If Kalifornia wasn't so bug-crap politically nuts

If the cost of living wasn't so danged thru the roof

If they didn't have a State Income Tax

I would probably move back

I've lived in and visited A LOT of US States and other Countries but I've gotta say that Kalifornia is the most beautify

Moved to TX in 1976 from VT

NO WAY IN HADIS I WOULD GO BACK.

Snow and cold nope.

California just plain sucks. Beauty makes diddly squat difference.

No other states interest me as far as residing. Some Id like to and have visited but none to stay.

Of the 50 in our great country 2 I have 0 interest in ever having the misfortune to step foot in are CA and HI.

Both so far gone its disgraceful.

Moved here from northern Illinois 25 years ago and you couldn't pay me to go
back there just to visit.

Born in Texas and will die in Texas, if Godís willing.
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

well i've had good friends from a lot of different states here in
the USA, and a few from other countries.
the ones that get to me and P. me off are the ones who come
here and boo-hoo about being here and not being to wherever
they came from because it's so much better than where
they are now. ( even though they ARE HERE and have
absolutely no intention of going back to the eden they came from )
fwiw the finest most loyal patriotic citizens i ever had the pleasure
of being around were those naturalized citizens i've known that
came from other countries that were communist/socialist or
despotic dictatorships. they'll tell you right quick what a relative
paradise on earth the United States is, and what a sh**hole of a
place the country they came from is.

Agreed with ya for sure.

My good friend came from Columbia as a 2 yr old with his familia. All are US citizens and some of the most appreciative folks I know.

I have been to VT (my birth state) 2x since moving in 76. 1st time we took our new baby daughter to meet some of her family there. She was 6mo. old she will be 36 next month. Last time 3 yrs ago with my 86 and 83 yr old dad and mom both have family plots there and we went to attend to some things.

Stayed a week in 83 and 10 days on lake we grew up on second time.

Dont miss it TX is 10000 times better.

I agree, I have a friend that is from China, he has been here since the early 80ís and is worried that the Democrats will make this country into a China. Btw, his son is an officer in the US Air Force and Iím currently trying to get him to sign up for his LTC.
