And once again, not complimentary to Texas and Texans but based on some solid facts. Quite applicable to libertarians and their bullshit priorities.

I've been in Texas several times and had several friends who came from Texas but were trying to adapt to living elsewhere.

Many things about the State of Texas suck, in my opinion (the panhandle in a bad summer will kill you quickly if you are not prepared and equipped), but I think their government is far better than the government of the Republic of Kalifornia or Massachusetts or many others.

Edit: And I would say that I like Texans in general from my limited experiences with them, but was disappointed by their racism, even though I understood the causes of it.

crappy jobs --- California too

• fees, fees, fees --- CA too.

• endless driving --- I'd guess this guy would be one of the few that benefit from CA high speed rail, as he'd only want to be in SF or LA.

• charlatans --- Also true of CA. 

• racist ---  The only NAZI's I've ever actually met, California.

• cheaply made housing --- as a structural engineer, true in CA too.

• water ---  at l;east they have water.

• bad losers --- how are they at winning?  Do they riot like Californians?

• quality of life --- Guess which state was recently named the worst place to live

• angry old white men --- CA also has angry old asian, hispanic, and white men.

• rocks, snakes, & scorpions --- We've got those in spades, ever heard of death valley or the Mojave?

Fun facts, Several varieties of CA redwoods and oaks depend on fire for their life cycles.  The Central Valley is so fertile on account of thousands of years of winter floods that turned it into an inland see on regular basis and its home to one of the worlds smallest mountain ranges.

Crappy jobs are available worldwide.

Depending on the legal system of political economy, it's possible for all of the peasants to have crappy outcomes from their jobs because greedy government.

An anger and hate-filled rant.  I actually feel sorry for the guy.  He must be suffering from depression and expressing it by lashing out at strangers.

I would say it's comedy. But if it's anger and depression as you say then it would be that as turnabout aimed at political opponents. It's rampant on this forum on both sides.

I don't want to play any longer. MMM, ahhell, you, Oppo sometimes, and maybe Tom are enough to keep the forum going.

I would be pleased to hear you say you would also take a stand. It's just become too demeaning and childish to continue for me.
