Per its tradition in the second week of May, America’s business leaders have voted for the states with the “best” and “worst” business climates.

As usual, Chief Executive Magazine places California at the top….of the naughty list!

"That’s 10 years in a row — a decade of dominance.

Huy Fong Rocks!

Texas has loved the Vietnamese, and they have blessed Texas.

Come on down!

Fewer things are as hard hitting as someone that escaped something horrible, only to say that America looks like what they had escaped.

The Vietnamese lit up the gulf shrimp industry.
We all take that for granted now.

This fellow has been most successful for a kid thrown on the waves of war.

I wish him happy shores.

Every Viet I know has smoking pepper bushes here in tx.
Peppers grow like weeds here.

Chiltepins are my favorite indigenous pepper.

BTW, I just learned this from a Viet guy,
Fry some eggs, and splash soy on it then cover with plate while the liquid steams the top opaque. I have always done this with water rather than soy.

No salt necessary, haven’t even tried the siratcha on it.

Have a good bit of dunkin bread on hand.

Looks like the key question is whether the special peppers can be grown in Texas.

Lawmaker Seeks Sriracha move from California

Tran said Texas must prove it can grow chili peppers as hot as the hybrid jalapenos he gets from a farm that specifically developed them to make his Sriracha sauce the hottest possible.

"If there is not chili peppers, we cannot build the plant," he told reporters.

Although Tran had the Texas flag flying outside the facility on Monday, he said it was just meant to welcome his visitors. Inside the plant's employee parking lot, and out of public view, a large sign declared, "No Tear Gas Made Here."

All the asian variety’s grow like weeds here,

I dont see Denton Tx as the best base but peppers grow like weeds here.

I am totally down with that! I think it's better than, and easier than, cooking them over easy.

Yeah but they made it international.

Some of the viets I know are just getting to understand crawfish.

But my point is they saw the potential in the bay for shrimp.

I think steaming/basting leaves the egg with a more pleasant texture anyway. I don’t want the top of my egg to look like it’s supposed to be the bottom. Never thought of using a liquid other than water for the steam, though. But... you absolutely have to use bacon grease for the pan fat to fry the egg in. Yum!

The Viets work together like Patels do with hotels

I’m ambivalent.

Locals were mad Viets got fed money to buy boats and didn’t respect normal shrimping manners and courtesy

But the early Viets were staunchly anti liberal.

And raised their kids well....

And we obviously owed some of them from the war.....

The younger Viets today are like young Cubans...they drink from the minority oppressed by white culture chalice.....damn shame

Well they can be nippleheads about rules and fishing courtesy.

I’ve had to whip my pole in a few guys heads to get them off my territory.

I finally got some chitepins to germinate in my mini hothouse. So far I have over 50 plants between two and four inches tall.

I bought a 2oz bag of chitepins from Marx Foods. Then I crushed the peppers between my fingers(in the closed bag) to break them down. Planted about 10 in each cell of a 72 cell mini hot house in miracle grow starting mix, watered well, put under two 48 inch t8 florescent lights, and waited. some showed up after 2 weeks but most took over three weeks.

Trimmed back the smaller plants to one in each cell and kept the dome on until now.
