    Well, I guess I never will, now.

    I refuse to patronize such an idiotic petty tyranny with my tourism dollars.
    Come see Ft. Worth instead. Not as crowded, loaded with culture, and lovely in late winter during the Stock Show and Rodeo.

    Luckily I don't live in New York, but if there are a majority of New Yorkers that are loony and want this to happen so be it.

    I'd have to see a certified poll by Pew or some other recognized pollster showing majority support before I'd be even CLOSE to believing that "the People" of NY really want this.

    Even then, I'd be incredulous.

    We considered moving to the area, some time ago.
    Texas seems interesting.

    There are plenty of stereotypes out there that either exaggerate our flaws or our perks. I've lived in several states over the course of my life and I can say without question that nothing feels like home except Texas.

    If you ever get a chance to spend time here I strongly encourage looking up some of the historic/folksy sites to visit. There's history here that goes well beyond statehood and character you don't see anywhere else. Don't let the glitz of Houston and Dallas distract you too much, either.

    We were actually considering looking into Wichita Falls.
    In the future, I'm sure a visit to Texas will happen.

    Don't really want to live in Ga my whole life.

    No seriously no. Wichita Falls is absolute nothing barren pit. It is always hotter there in the summer and colder with worse weather in the winter. And there ain't a darn thing to do in that town

    Just looked at my company website, we have a subsidiary in Dallas.
    Intra company employment moves are allowed (usually encouraged), so I could have a guaranteed job.

    But it will be some time, before we'd make any serious move like that.
    Hell we just bought a house, but Texas seems to be a big place, with plenty of opportunity.

    That's one stereotype that is generally true. If you ever consider the move I'd be glad to help steer you away from the more questionable neighborhoods.

    I've seen it. IMO, you're not missing anything. It was a serious, "so, this is it?" moment.
