Like they say - "Texas - it's a whole different country"

Don't misunderstand we got some issues: the border issue,we have some of the highest electric rates in the country along with some of the highest home insurance rates,tornados,hail,etc.

But it's still a great state IMO.

I was in El Paso one time checking out some medical equipment to purchase. The company took me to a steak house called Edge of Texas. Best and biggest steak I ever had. Walked across the bridge to Jaurez and done some shopping in an outdoor market. Not sure I would do that today.

Haven't been to Juarez in quite some time,but I now hear it's not a good place for shopping like you said. Most people I know go to Progreso to shop.

Yes Sir, I will be one of the first to admit. ..we do have our issues. But there is still a pride in Texans that comes from deep within. ...A pride that some misinterpret as a 'Holier than Thou' attitude if you will. ...but we're just people, good people. Some even still think all of us have our own oil wells, thousands of head of cattle and our own personal jets to fly us around on our huge ranches.
A Texan eats, sleeps and breaths Texas. There is no other place on earth like it....There is no other flag, other than the US flag that is as as quickly recognized. There is still so much pride in Texans. ...we love our state.
As they say. ...most times you don't have to ask a Texan where they are from. ...If they're from Texas, they'll tell ya.

Now if we can just boot Jerry Jones back to Arkansas we would have one less issue.

The way I heard it is you never ask where people are from because if they are Texans they will tell you and if not...well.....it is impolite to embarrass strangers...
