    America's Best States To Live - Forbes.com

    These guys put Texas at 21 in overall quality of life. Respectable, but my horrible socialist state of Minnesota made #5. Then again, Utah made #1 so who knows what the hell's going on there. Brainwashed people are "satisfied," right?

    Point is, your anecdote really isn't worth any more than mine. Minnesota is awesome I can't believe I moved to New York for so long. So glad to be back!

    , I doubt that anything I post is going to be deemed credible by you as you really have no interest in actually doing your own research to verify that data I post or consider where it comes from. Everything that OC has posted has been refuted but you choose to buy what OC states. Why? I don't think OC has a lot of credibility in anything posted. OC's desire is for attention and for putting others down. OC has no interest in facts, logic, or common sense.

    OC and you sure do have a passion for that disaster known as OBama and liberalism. To each their own.

    I love Minnesota, a very beautiful state but wouldn't want to live there, too liberal for me and too expensive. Great to visit though as I have been there many times.

    I prefer living in TX as I hate the long cold winters and the higher taxes than we have in TX

    After all, that's what he argued.

    It's going to be amusing watching Texas report a huge deficit and watching Conservative flee from the thread.
    Wonder what OC believes a Rainy Day fund is for? TX does not allow for deficit spending so would that qualify for use of the Rainy Day fund? TX will always cut spending to reduce deficits whereas liberals will always raise taxes. OC needs to figure out why people are moving to TX and moving out of California.

    As for housing, I gave a site that offered different opinions but that can also be backed up by population growth in TX. If people weren't moving here there wouldn't be a need for housing.

    I suggest you read all the posts and not just the ones you want to agree with.

    Tx problem solved.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You seem to be under the impression that I believe that all of the Obama stimulus plan was bad. That is false, any part of the stimulus that goes towards actual job creation is good and the intent of a stimulus program. Any idea as to what percentage of the 800 billion stimulus plan meets that criteria? Bailing states out, funding union pension funds is not stimulus.

    The stimulus grew government and created government jobs. It did nothing for private business and 90% of the unemployed.

    You are right, I should have stipulated private sector jobs.
