Yes, Another Vanity (eyeroll)
7/6/2011 | Me

Posted on 07/06/2011 10:41:36 AM PDT by NoGrayZone

My sister stopped over this morning. We got back to talking about moving to another state....again.

She stated Texas has been calling her, she is an RN. The hospital she works at now used to have several booths, recruiting new grads. Now they have none. They are constantly invited to "luncheons", in which they do not participate. They have stopped hiring, as I have found out trying to find a new job.

My sister said they are encouraging recent grads to go to Texas, to get their bacholers & RN license.

I know, from FR, TX is booming. My sister has a friend who moved back to Houston, TX, owns 3 homes in which he rents and said he could get me a great paying job in the oil industry (I hehehe'd at that one).

With my sisters RN license, she wouldn't have a problem getting a job, and perhaps at the rate she is paid here in NY.

We are very nervous about leaving our home state, been here all our lives.....but they are killing us. She asked me to post a thread, specifically to TX FReepers, just for some information regarding the Houston area.

We are suburanites and very Conservative. We would NOT bid well in ANY area that is slightly blue.

We also have questions regarding weather. I (and my sister) must claim "stupid" regarding this subject. We are used to 4 seasons, etc. How is the Houston area, or it's suburbs(must be suburbs. We CANNOT live in a "city" type area).

If I remember correctly (in which she pointed out) Austin is lib, correct?

The last thing we want to do is move across county, only to wind up in a mini NY.

To all you Texans out there, any information would be grateful, especially around the Houston area.

Keep in mind....."THE REDDER THE BETTER".

Any TX posters who might not want us "Yanks" moving into their states, just stop and think before you post.

My sister and I are the minority here and want out. Such is a move is extremely scary; however, I remember Rush talking about moving to another state to better one's life.

We are on the brink and no longer WANT to be here. We HATE NY and what it's become.

I don’t live in Texas, but moving out of New York was one of the best moves in my entire life. Trust me, you’re going to be even happier for it in the long run than you think.

I don't mind Yanks moving to Texas. I mind Yanks wanting to move here and then make it more like "back home". More so with the illegals. We like the way things are here just fine. You are welcome, just remember why you wanted to move here. Welcome to Texas!

I often see bumper stickers here that say "I wasn't born a Texan, but I got here as soon as I could".

We need out. I know wherever we move, we will be looked at with suspicious eyes because of our heavy NY accent.

However, that is no worry of mine, once they get to know us. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if we were more “red” than they are!

My son moved to New York state and said he was very accepted by the locals there. Still pretty close to a number of them, though he's back in Texas now.

You might consider living in a more rural area, if redder is better.

For God's sake don't eat the chili.

I'm not a Texan but have spent enough time there to know what you're getting into. By your standards, it's hot, big, and really spread out. "Texas is a world all on its own / It takes a lifetime to drive from Eastland to Van Horne..." Just one suggestion - put getting a Texas license plate fairly high on your list. And lose the "I'm gay, I'm for Gore, and I'm here to take your guns" bumper sticker...

;-)

I left NY in 2000. I try not to go back for more than a week.

I will NEVER like in New York again. I despised Illinois. Georgia isn't bad, but it's getting blue-er. I might end up leaving America completely.

If there is, could someone please ping Texas for me? Thanks! =)

Houston is a vastly under-rated area. Find out where she is going to work prior to finding a place to live to save on commuting time. Housing is very affordable. It’s growing fast and nurses have no problem finding work.

We need all the good nurses we can get in Texas, especially if they are conservative. It is really hot and dry in Texas this particular summer but the spring and fall are spectacular and the winters are not bad at all.

They're just kidding. Well, not really, what they say is true, but she's not really telling to you fuggetaboutit. Many here feel like the old West is disappearing with all the influx of "out-of'staters". I'd much rather have them than the illegals.

Speakin' for myself as a native Texan I'll say this. I ain't got nothin' against "Yanks" movin' to Texas.....
Provided those "Yanks" are a hundred percent red blooded All American conservatives.....
I'll welcome y'all in a heartbeat....

I'll tell ya now what I'm sick and tired of.....
It's those damn yanks who come here to get away from liberal states and then bitch all day, everyday about how Texas should become more like their home state.....
I'm tried of those kind of "Yanks".....
I believe you'll find a lot of Texans who'll say the same as I have.....

Houston is much more liberal than Dallas/Ft. Worth. Houston has a lesbian mayor and a disastrous school system because most officials are affirmative action hires. Houston is a sanctuary city and there are many places where no one speaks English. Also the weather is disagreeable with heat and humidity most of the year and the occasional hurricane. We lived in Houston for five years and were happy to leave.

The D/FW Metroplex would be a better fit for conservatives relocating to our state. And at least there is some seasonal change in the weather there, though all of Texas is unbearably hot during our excessively long summers (end of April to November). Utility prices are obscene, but there is no state income tax, so it balances out.

Check out the College Station-Bryan area. Scott & White is building a huge new medical complex. It's 90 miles from Houston and geographically a lot more desirable than Houston, IMO...closer to Dallas, Austin, San Antonio. My guess is the pop. of the area is about 150,000 but it takes about 5 minutes to be very rural.

I don't live there but I visit there regularly and I love it . A lot of people I know would love to move there if they could get rid of the baggage they have where they live.

Lots of Katrina evacuees there also, so choose wisely where you decide to move to.

A possibility to consider:

“The American Redoubt” (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, eastern halves of Oregon and Washington states) More at site.

http://www.survivalblog.com/redoubt.html

The American Redoubt — Move to the Mountain States

Recognizing both the fact that “all politics are local”, and the international readership of SurvivalBlog, I naturally de-emphasize politics in my blog. However, a recent article got my blood boiling: Motorists illegally detained at Florida tolls - for using large bills! So, not only are Federal Reserve Notes not redeemable “on demand” for specie, but effectively they are now no longer “...legal tender for all debts public and private.” It is often hard to pinpoint a breaking point—the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back”—as impetus for a paradigm shift, but reading that news article was that last straw for me. Consider my paradigm fully shifted. I’m now urging that folks Get Out of Dodge for political reasons—not just for the family preparedness issues that I’ve previously outlined. There comes a time, after a chain of abuses when good men must take action. We’ve reached that point, folks!

Voting With Our Feet

I concur that Pastor Chuck Baldwin was right when he “voted with his feet” and moved his family from Florida to Montana. Like Chuck Baldwin I believe that is time for freedom-loving Christians to relocate to something analogous to “Galt’s Gulch” on a grand scale.

Ol’ Remus of The Woodpile Report recently quoted an essay by economist Giordano Bruno, titled The Return Of Precious Metals And Sound Money. In it, Bruno stated: “If there is anything good to come out of our present predicament, it is that Americans, from average citizens to elected officials, are beginning to understand the reality of coming collapse and are preempting it with measures designed to insulate their communities from the inevitable firestorm. Eventually, as this movement escalates, certain states will come out ahead of the pack, gaining a kind of “safe haven” status, and attracting liberty minded people from around the country to the protective shelter of their borders.”

Giordano Bruno identified a trend that has been developing informally for many years: A conscious retrenchment into safe haven states. I strongly recommend this amalgamation, and that it be formalized. I suggest calling it The American Redoubt. I further recommend Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, eastern Oregon, and eastern Washington for the réduit. Some might call it a conglomeration, but I like to call it an amalgamation, since that evokes silver. And it will be a Biblically-sound and Constitutionally-sound silver local currency that will give it unity.”

Houston is hot, humid, large, and mostly lib.

But ... you’re near the coast and not a far stretch for visiting New Orleans for an occasional getaway. Excellent beaches are just a bit further into Alabama.

Suburbs of Houston are going to be more conservative. I’d recommend Katy, Conroe, The Woodlands, or Sugarland.

Positives: It’s Texas. It’s not NY. Texas is conservative. Proximity to the Gulf.

Negatives: Large city. Liberal (but not as much as Austin). The occasional hurricane. And as mentioned ... hot and humid.

I escaped from Jersey in 2006 to plant roots in San Antonio. I don’t care if it is too hot. Dont care how big the bugs are. That’s why god created lizards.

All the yanks I know who moved from the northeast are as red as they come.

Thank you. That is exactly the info I was looking for. Our summers are not only hot but HUMID. I don't know which is worse. But our summers here, we go from 1 air conditioned place to another.

When you say "the winters are not bad at all." does that mean I don't have to shovel 2 feet of snow just to get to work?

Spring and fall are my ABSOLUTE favorite seasons!

NY is NOT a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC)
so she will have to go to a state that is(NH, RI) to take that state’s Nursing Exam and then she can practice in 26 states(for info see/https://www.ncsbn.org/nlc.htm).

I’m a Texan, but I live 400 miles North of Houston. Austin is very liberal, and from what I’ve heard, Houston is fairly liberal too. Sheila Jackson Lee is from Houston after all.

Having said that, there are tons and tons of Conservatives there too. I suppose like the rest of the country, once you get into a big city, you’re gonna have the lib elemenent more so than if you live in a smaller town or the boonies.

One thing you won’t get here in Texas, is 4 seasons. You’ll have 2, Summer and Winter. Fall and Spring last about a week each. It’s a bit cooler in Houston than in N. Tx but the humidity is higher. :)

Hell & Texas

The Devil, we're told, in Hell was chained,
for a thousand years to there remain;
He never complained nor did he groan,
But determined to start another Hell of his own.
Where He could torment the souls of men
without be chained in his prison pen.
So he asked the Lord if He had on hand
anything left when he made the land.

The Lord said,"Yeah, I had plenty on hand and left it all down by the Rio Grande....
Fact is, old boy, the stuff's so dang poor,
I don't think you could use it as Hell anyore......

But the devil went down to examine the truck,
And decided since it came as a gift he was stuck....
For after checking it out carefully and well
He concluded the place was too dry for a hell.

Well, in order to get it off His hands,
The Lord promised the devil to water the lands....
For He had some water, or rather some dreggs,
A regular cathartic that smelled like bad eggs.

Hence the deal was done and the deed was given....
And The Lord went back to His Home in Heaven.
The devil then said, "I have all that is needed to make Texas a good hell," and hence he succeeded!

He began to put thorns on all of the trees,
And mixed up the sand with millions of fleas....
And scattered tarantulas along all the roads....
And put thorns on the cactus and horns on the toads.
He lengthened the horns of the Texas steers,
And put added length on the rabbits ears.....
He put some devil in the broncho steed.....
And poisoned the feet of the centipede.

The rattlesnake bites you, the scorpion stings,
The mosquito delights you with his buzzing wings...
The sand burrs prevail and so do the ants,
And those who sit down need shoe soles on their pants....

The devil then said that throughout the land
He'd managed to keep up the devil's own brand,
And all would be mavericks unless they bore
The marks of scratches and bites and thorns by the score.

The heat in the summer is a hundred and ten....
Too hot for the devil and too hot for men.
The wild boar roams in the high chaparral......
It's A Hell of a Place he has for a Hell!

Lots of murders in Houston. Mexicans are taking over the state. Austin is super liberal but has good food and music n

Weather is super hot. State is huge and takes hours and hours to get to the major city. Traffic is a bitch.

See it all getting worse over the next 10-20 years.

Avoid border states. Live in low crime, low democrat area. Moderate weather. Low taxes. Texas ain’t the place. She’d also need to learn Spanish.

That has happened where I loved in GA and NC.
I asked one such complainer “if it was so much better back there then why are you here?”
Her answer, “the weather and lower taxes.”
Couldn’t get her to understand that there was a reason her taxes were higher back there and it had something to do with all the stuff she now said she missed and wanted.

We will love having you in Houston or any place in Texas. I am a native my ancestors settled Texas, welcome! Yes summer is hot here but the rest of the year is great and you never hear about that also every place is air conditioned.

I have heard from many transplants that when they heard they were being transferred to Texas that they thought their life was over. But after a very short time they loved it. I hope that you love it too.

Someone upthread said Houston was more liberal than D and FW. I think people in the inner city, inside loop 610, are more liberal than those living farther out. The Houston Medical Center is inside the loop. Housing is more expensive inside the loop as well.

I compeltely understand where you’re coming from. As I have stated, my sister and I are red blooded Conservative Americans; which is why we want OUT of NY.

My little village that I work and live in (Huntington Village, NY) is conservative. Every “fest” we have, I am my own “one man band” Tea Party.

But yet I am consistently disappointed when the elections are over that my Conservative “peeps” have lost.

Probably explains why I hate to leave my own little village.

I have a recurring sci-fi fantasy in which I am given access to some amazing alien tech, including nanoprobes that allow for 10x normal human intelligence, strength, durability, etcetera. I manage to develop a product called the E.G.G. -- the Energy Generation 'Gizmo' -- that seems to create electricty out of nothing (although in reality it uses differences in the 3rd and the 4th dimension to create the electricy). Armed with this 'total energy solution', and claiming the planet Mars as the Free Nation of Mars, I build a fortune in Earth Dollars, and also terraform Mars. Citizens are allowed entry into Mars, but brain-scanning before citizenry is permitted will make it so that Mars weeds out any Communists, militant Islamics, or One-Worlders and Globalists who are set on sabatoging this new "America".

I'd write one hell of a Constitution and Bill of Rights. One right I believe was missed, was the right of privacy. I'd also change the 2nd Amendment to allow civilian ownership of ANY military weapon in current or past use. Yes, nuclear weapons too. However, scanning technology might let us know you had a 20 kilotonner in your shorts before you even got to the airport.

With little effort, you may find that other states need nurses as well (e.g., Ohio), and forgo Texas. I lived in Texas for 10 years, and finally left. Too dam hot and spread out. Couldn’t wait to leave. However, if you can stand the climate and much of the other stuff, it could be a nice place. The people are nice, strong belief that the world orbits around Texas (interesting), 3 of 4 seasons are nice, lotsa money, like a foreign country, politically on the “right” side, and so on (oh, and as another poster said, lotsa beautiful women - sorry, I didn’t check out the guys). Houston as a destination? A very poor choice. From one armpit (NY) to another.

How far is Houston to Dallas/Ft. Worth? As I have stated, my sister and I NEED to move to a RED area.

The last place I want to move to is a “sanctuary city”....unless of course, I could close it down.

We tried it here in Huntington. They seemed to have “demolished” it, but all the illegals just stand along the ENTIRE road, looking for work.

It takes all my might NOT to run them over (God help me for my vicious thoughts).

"Don’t move here."

Why?
