    I've lived in Dallas

    for 15 years and have only learned how to avoid hating Texas by insulating myself from it. There are many material benefits here, but in general it is a geographically ugly place, uncomfortable climate, very bad air, and most of all - filled with Texans. Like any of the pokey...

    They think they're better than everyone else, acting as if they are their own country.  I wish they would go ahead and seceed before they inflict any more presidents on us.  Or maybe we can give them back to Mexico?
