Obviously, you have never lived here in Texas or come from this state. I am so tired of people bashing Texas. It is a wonderful place to live. Everybody thinks we are gun toting racist rednecks. We for your information Texas is not trying to stop people from recording the police, in fact most police departments here wear bodycams. Yes we have our guns, but did you know that Texas is only one of five states the do not allow open carry of pistols. We can open carry long guns, but that does get tedious. Racist? We are one of the most racially diverse states in the country. It is common to see mixed race marriages here. Rednecks..well Kentucky has hillbillies and New England has Yankees..I have lived in both places and can tell you they are just as redneck as any Texan.
Many commentators have noted that only in Texas do people open shop doors for strangers routinely, say hello to everyone and make eye contact with everyone. In Houston we are only second to New York City of theater stage square footage. We have world class museums, Universities and we have the worlds largest Medical Center with some of the worlds greatest hospitals. For goodness sakes, the human genome project is headquartered here and they broke the genome code here. Texas is a great big state with everything from semi tropical areas to deserts, mountains, plains and forests. We are conservative in nature, but we watch out for our neighbors, take a serious stance on crime, and love our kids. Stop the Texas Bashing pleeeeease.
