Actually, we've got a solution to the heat. It's called AIR CONDITIONING!
I know, I know, President HopeyChangey doesn't like it and wants to control our thermostats. Well, Texas is the headquarters of Lennox International (Lennox, Armstrong, Ducane, Air-Flo...located in Richardson), Trane's residential operations (Trane, American Standard...Tyler), and Goodman (Goodman, Amana...Houston). Goodman's actually become the nation's best selling brand.
One of the most said saying here.
Funny you should mention that.....
I heard Chuck Norris on Glenn Beck’s radio show several weeks ago, and he (Chuck) half-jokingly mentioned that he was thinking of running for President of Texas!
How about "If at first you don't secede, elect a different governor."
Wherebouts ? I like wide open and empty, but not too hot. I'd miss snow, too.
My forebears fought and died for the Confederate States of America and I am a native born Texan, currently a resident of Montana. If Texas does secede from the Union, I will pack my bags.
They said that about Sam Houston with regards to Mexico, too.
Thing is, Texas has a strange way of bringing out successes in otherwise total failures. He was a failure at life, a drunkard, had no success with women, and both his early and late life were total disasters. But for one brief shining moment, he was the right man in the right place at the right time to kick Santa Ana’s ass.
Much of Texas history is dotted with men who were failures elsewhere who came here and became great successes.
We have lots of room up in the panhandle.
As for too hot, that’s why God gave us air conditioning and nuclear reactors.
I live in Corpus Christi (military). This place is despicable. Illegals outnumber the citizens. Anchor babies are coming of age in regards to voting. Texas WILL turn blue within 4 years!!!!!!!
Who says you'll be able to emigrate? Or whether they (Texas) will even give you a visa?
Doesn’t have to be a military separation. The liberals would probably be happy to see us leave if we work out the details. Remember, then we could promise that they’d never get another Bush from Texas as President.
On top of which, the South probably would have been left to go their own way if that IDIOT Chesnut hadn’t opened fire on Fort Sumter. He should have starved them out and taken their surrender afterwards.
Wow what bold talk. Hopefully the country won’t have to break up.
I’ve often felt like the South stands a good chance of leaving the union if things get bad. The people here just won’t take the bull that our new regime would like to pull.
It all depends on how much they try with us...
I like Dalhart, and the drive se thru the panhandle, I must admit. My Dad lives in Granbury. And I really like the Comanche area around Quanah. Need a job, though.What can one do there ?
West from Wichita Fall, South of Lubbock, North of San Angelo, and West to NM. The Big Nothing.
It is very nice in the winter, but summers can be hot. But most of the summer it is a dry hot, not muggy.
If you want specific locations, e-mail me.
The Texas Fossil
Pretty much everything but “community organizer” is available to one degree or other. Anything from hanging steel to building/maintaining nuclear weapons.
Please explain in that you're from Michigan...
Fellow Texan here. I remember learning about TX right to secede.
Texas history was my very favorite subject.
Where are you from?
Man, if he did that Austin would be pretty much empty.
That freak Reno massacred scores and bull dyke Napolitano is walking in her footsteps, probably make Reno look like a piker by the time shes done.
Nothing to explain. It’s an opinion.
I doubt that; for Lincoln it was all about preserving the union. Incidentally, Edmund Ruffin (a Virginian) actually fired the first shot at Ft. Sumter (he later, upon hearing of the surrender at Appomattox, wrapped himself in a Confederate flag and blew his brains out.) I believe you are thinking of Mary Chesnut who chronicled much of the war in her diary for the South.
Mine too... we had to make a scrapbook of Texas History... I remember burning the edges of a paper to make it look “old”... as a faked letter from Stephen Austin. :-)
The constitution didn’t outlaw swcession, still doesn’t for that matter. They would not ever have got it ratified if the staes thought it was a one way deal. Interesting to note the confederate Constitution corrected this and referred to a Perpetual union. Mostly it is a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
Originally from Wisconsin. I love what Texas is saying, but the libs are flooding this state with Mexicans.
Wow, reading that gave me goosebumps.
Colonel James Chesnut, Jr. is the idiot who asked for Fort Sumter’s surrender, and when he didn’t get it, ordered his forces to fire into the Fort.
Sounds like heaven to me.
After what happened between 1861-65, no state will be allowed to secede again. Besides, Texas still produces a lot of oil and I don't believe that Mr. 0bama is going to forego that needed resource to help pay for his grandiose plans.
Ah, but remember, he hates American oil. So he’ll be happy to see us go, the better to usher in his green future.
I’d miss snow, too
I would never miss snow. It’s heaven to never have to put on a heavy coat, boots, gloves, worry about hypothermia if the you have no heat or car breaks down. Perfection is when the temp never reaches freezing.
If they did secede, we would probably move there.
I like it cool but not cold.
though Hot and sticky to me is worse than cold....I can put on more clothes but you can only take off everything and still be sweaty.
You forgot the Scorpions
...have long term friendships with terrorists, communists,criminals and American hating preachers...
...hate the Constitution, liberty, freedom and capitalism...
....you have no experience and can only read from a teleprompter...
...are a pathological liar...
...are a radical American-hating communist...
what will I do with my snowblower?
Texas is at the top of the list for our next move.
What place could be better?
I am a mid-westerner by birth, but have lived most of my adult life in Texas. At heart, I consider myself a Texan. Now that I have a really great job, we are looking at relocating back to Texas in 5-7 years. As for now, we are Texans-in-excile due to family and job.
God Bless Texas, their values reflect mine. Let me defend my home with lethal force, and let me defend my neighbor’s home with the same force, too. Any state that lets me blast the bad guys with impunity, is a state I want to be a member of.
Texas. You just have to set your A/C to 78F when it’s 96 outside. =)
My parents moved to Texas from Chicago 40 years ago. When I ask them about moving back north, they laugh and say, “Never!”
In Houston we pretty much have great weather except for July, August, September when it’s really hot. Once the first real cool front hits at the end of September, the weather is great all the way through June again. It’s about 3 months of hot, 7 months of just-plain-nice, and 2 months of cold.
Thanks for reminding me about the scorpions. I forgot the tarantulas and fiddleback spiders too. Oh, and those giant flying roach things they have around Houston. That should keep them away, lol.
East Texas. Very pretty, lots of beautiful trees and hills and the people are the best.
Let’s get it going, Tennesse would be proud to be a Border state.
Love to see HSA face down Texas, talk about a knife to a gun fight.
“I dont love their weather...”
In what part? It varies widely from one part of the state to another, ya know.
