rip12 saidtalk of texas on these sites always cracks me up - i lived in texas almost right out of college for work
among the nicest most hospitable people ive met anywhere - and i must say i totally enjoyed my stay there
i always wonder how many of these people who have this hatred hardon for texas have ever been there? or what their motivation for all the vitriol could possibly be?
Been living in Texas five years, after being born in raised in Alaska, and living for half a decade in Europe.
And absolutely, people down here who are around my age or a bit younger are great to be friends with!
As for anyone over thirty-five? Whew! Lemme tell you, southern hospitality is legendary
...just so long as I didn't say a word against Christianity, or Jesus, or guns, or the military, or patriotism--or say anything positive about Islam, or Homosexuality, or Abortion and the Pro-Choice position, or Atheism. I'm happy you had a positive experience in Texas, Rip12. But to compare with my own experiences, I can't share your enthusiasm--and I haven't had a negative
experience by any means. I've just had to be overly cautious in dealing with strangers.
