    It is why Texas has one of the best economy in the US because of lower taxes and a cheap cost of living. business are leaving the high cost liberal cities in droves
    Texas ranks 24th in the list of 50 states and DC on GDP per capita: $45,940. That's below the national average ($47,482)

    Washington ranks 14th: $52,403, north of the national average.

    I'd advise attracting better companies that need better educated workers, and not the bottom feeders looking to do everything on the cheap. It works like a charm up here.

    and some one in Texas making $45,940 is living just as well as some one in Washington $52,403 because housing food gas and taxes are a lot cheaper in Texas

    Seems like a good idea, hope Obama does it. He should also appoint Al Sharpton AG when Holder steps down. Perhaps appoint Krugman as chariman for the Federal Reserve. There have to be 51 democratic senators willing to sign up for this trifecta.

    Better if you like fried pies, chicken fried steak or BBQ.

    Meanwhile, Copper River King, or any Chinook Salmon when CRK is not in season, would be my preferred. Plus it's a sweltering mid 70s here, and has been for many weeks, whilst smelling fresh sea/inland sea air, and blue sky so blue you'd think it was Democrat Heaven .... which, actually it is.

    And reasons like her are why there will always be racism.

    That's just one reason that she shouldn't be considered for any Secretary-level job, much less Homeland Security. But there are others.

    Re: Corgress woman Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

    saw this thread title and was hopeful it was an onion story
    no such luck
    Obama's achilles heel, to date, is his inability to recognize talent (or more accurately, the absence of it)
    hopefully, this appointment will not be more of the same

    consolidating federal agencies into homeland security was a misstep
    placing someone who is clearly inept to become the head of homeland security would be this side of criminal
    the congressional black caucus recommends - surprise - a black member of the committee
    someone who, by her own words, displays a profound misunderstanding of history:
    "Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.
    other than the congressional black caucus' recommendation, what about sheila jackson lee commends her to the position as head of our nation's homeland security apparatus?
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Your racist innuendo's are showing.

    Don't confuse Texas with States like Georgia and Alabama.

    Texas traditions are isolated to Texas alone and don't fall into some broad brushed description of a Southern fried Hicksville.

    You can keep Washington all to your selves. My Son is stationed up there and reports back on the desperate economic conditions and the dreary weather when he visits.

    He cant wait to put as many miles as possible between that State and Texas and who could blame him.
