    Because it scared everybody and our lawmakers put those plans on the back burner for now.

    add in the humidity, and the bugs, and who in their right mind lives there?
    Glad it's not just me

    I absolutely love Texas. I'm a transplant from OH.
    Bugs? Not anymore than OH. Fewer houseflies actually.
    heat and humidity beats snow and cold.
    Most of all I like the attitudes, friendliness, and pride of the state most Texans have.

    If a man's from Texas, he'll tell you. If he's not, why embarrass him by asking?

    Did it make up for what you're paying for gas and food, now and in the near future?
    Sure was better off with it than without it! I am also aware that the recession and peak oil was not created under Obama's administration.


    Hope you don't have any smokers in your family either. He raised that tax as soon as he got to the WH. BTW, most smokers make less than $250K.
    It has been found that the higher the cost of cigerettes, the more people quit. I think that is a good thing. I have not heard of protest by the middle class of an increase in cigerette taxes have you? Is there a Tobbaco Leaf Party I have missed somewhere along the way?

    Why are liberals constantly comparing us to other countries? We aren't other countries, we're different and I like it that way, don't you?
    Do a little reading for goodness sake. We haven't produced as much oil as we consume in 40 years, and despite our "new" finds and "new" drilling techniques, we continue to produce a smaller and smaller percentage than the oil we consume. We are importing natural gas now too for the first time. We either come up with alternatives fast or we are in for a very rough and economically challenged future. That is why the US military issued its warning about peak oil in March of last year, and it is why they have joined with the Department of Energy, as the largest user of oil in the world, to partner in the development and use of alternative energy.

And I;m sure you know what happens with public union money from there.
    That might make some kind of sense if the private companies hired to build roads and perform maintenance had public unions.
