Don’t believe the lies! Texas is a horrible, terrible place to live! October 29, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, Basics, foolishness, fun, General Catholic, huh?, Immigration, silliness, Society.
I don’t know whether to be proud or miffed. It seems Texas cities make up almost half of the top locations of GDP growth in the year 2014. I know I live in the greatest state in the union, I am a native Texan through and through, but at the same time every time I drive to work I get reminders of how many people are flooding here from abroad. I can’t drive to work without seeing Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, and, Heaven forfend, California. I have read that since 2005 500,00 out of staters have moved to the DFW area. Now surely I hope some of those folks are good, moral Christians who will become good Texans, but I know many of them are not. They simply cannot be. And so I fear this state will get overrun – Californicated, if you will – by people fleeing the very states their leftist beliefs and voting patterns have ruined.
It happened to Colorado. It happened to Nevada. It could sure as heck happen here. And we know the left is actually working to try to make this happen. If Texas becomes a purple or blue state, we’re finished.
1. Table of the Day (above). Based on data released a few weeks ago by the BEA, the table above shows the 20 US metro areas with the fastest GDP growth in 2014. Interestingly, 5 of the top 10 fastest growing metro areas, and 9 of the top 20, were in just one state — Texas. Also interesting, though not unexpected, is the fact that energy is largely responsible for the strong economic growth in the top 5 fastest growing metro areas in 2014, and in all of the top 13 fastest growing metros except maybe Dallas and San Jose. Carpe oleum.
So before any of you wild eyed leftists get ideas of coming to Texas, dreaming of enjoying riches while spreading the gospel of socialist sexular pagan misery, let me tell you a few things:
We’re mired in a horrible depression here in Texas. Yeah, 2014 might have been good, but with the Saudis flooding the market, the shale boom is over and folks are getting fired left and right. Midland, Odessa, Tyler, Victoria, Beaumont -ghost towns, all of them. The few remaining people are flat broke, destitute, lying about on dusty streets covered with scorpion stings and rattlesnake bites. Oh yeah, they’re everywhere. I don’t care if you buy a $5 million condo on the 40th floor in downtown Dallas, it will be infested – with roaches the size of rats, rats the size of cats, and cats the size of really, really big cats. It’s just how it is here. Vermin everywhere. It’s the worst possible place to live you can imagine.
Why am I proud of the place, then? Well, it takes a pretty tough hombre to hang here in this state, where it’s constantly at least 90 degrees (on Christmas) and it never rains except when it rains 24 inches in a day, right, Corsicana? So you could call it a kind of perverse pride held by those who can tough it out. But Californians? They die by the truckload within days of coming here. We just dump ’em in the old exhausted oil wells. All those Yankees, too. Dead. Either the heat gets them, or the rattlers, or the giant spiders, or one of us crazy gun nut Texans. And sometimes at night, when the cops helpfully look the other way, we run you down with our giant lifted trucks. Just for sport. Have you seen what a set of 37″ tires can do to a pedicured metrosexual in skinny jeans? Yeah……it’s not pretty. The only thing left is a few of his oh-so-trendy beard whiskers ground into the pavement.
SO DON’T MOVE TO TEXAS!!! YOU’LL HATE IT! STAY IN CALIFORNIA AND NEW JERSEY AND ALL THOSE OTHER WONDERFUL PLACES!!! THEY’RE SO MUCH BETTER!! WE’VE RUN OUT OF ROOM AND HOUSE PRICES ARE SKYROCKETING!!
At the same link, I found this gem:
