As a 5th generation Texan, we have it all. We're the 2nd leading oil production country in the world. Saudi fukin Arabia is 1st. We have pretty women, love our guns and generally do what the fuk we please. We have a strong militia, our own army and nobody really fuk's with us. What's not to love. Oh, and did I mention we also have our own music scene that very few people outside the state has heard of.

Here is just a taste.

And this kid lived right down the road from me in Crystal City. Max was the youngest by far of all his siblings, but I remember this little old country bar. My dad would take me in there with him, while he and the local ranchers and farmers would chew the fat with each other. I also remember listening to that bar playing music with our windows open in the wee hours of the night. That bar was in out in the country in the middle of nowhere.

Have some great memories of Texas and grad school there in the late 90's.

I miss Taco Cabana real bad (whataburger not so much) - best drunk food ever.

http://i.imgur.com/S7w0unRl.jpg

Got the place and some workers to sing along one night - Taco Cabana... to that Copacabana tune.
Local, family owned places had the best overall mexican food I thought. But I didn't know what I was ordering half of the time.
Summers are just too brutally hot though, just couldn't adapt to that heat.

Local wildlife scared the **** out of me at first - loud as hell insects singing from the trees, and had a giant red
vampire wasp thing chase me into the pool.

Yeah, but it is hot as balls there in the summer time. That would suck. I hate the heat.

If I could, I would move back to my home state of Montana ...

Oklahoma knows of and contributed to the Texas music scene. Often referred to Red Dirt Music around here.

My Father used to live in The Woodlands, Tx off the Woodlands golf course. One time there was a pro/am tourney there. Willie Nelson played golf in my dad's backyard. :D

One of the healthiest economies in the entire USA, too. Capitalism and lower taxes works. Hope those points are brought up in near-future debates.

Lulz, not at all. Takes a lot more than a thread on teh interwebz to upset me.

Speaking of DAC, I've met the fella. Also seen him live a time or two when I lived in B'Ham, AL. He's a pretty good ol' boy, even if he is a yankee.

Speaking of Texas, when I was very young, I would watch this fella on our floor model Curtis Mathes:

Fun factoid that I wouldn't appreciate until many years later, that fella's name is Jerry Haynes. His son is Gibby Haynes, who ended up getting himself a little band together.

As a conservative western Canadian, I can agree that Texas is goat state imo. I wish that the traditional and conservative approach in Texas had more influence on the federal government of Canada. Mainly the gun laws and justice system!
