The Texas vs. California Challenge

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 12/27/2021 12:32:12 PM

Leaving California for Texas is such a conformist thing to do these days, but I did for a short vacation to America. In Houston, I went into an H.E.B. and was talking about California to someone who was giving away free samples of beef – having conversations with random people is a huge difference from LA – and I had to reassure the guy I was going home. He seemed relieved. I’ve been coming to Texas intermittently for about 30 years, and it’s never seemed more crowded. The place is packed – the roads, the stores, the airport. Back home in LA, it’s empty and depressing


I'm happily staying out of this one and awaiting the comments to follow!

Our daughter and SIL live outside of Houston. When we visited them a few years ago, we were at a BBQ restaurant called the Tin Roof. A group of boys about 13-14 yrs old, in dusty baseball uniforms were in front of us so I asked one boy if they had won...He said...'no Ma'am, but we will tomorrow.' I was struck by his politeness and his confidence. Texas rocks.

Don't California my Texas. One comment about Dan Crenshaw. He is a big disappointment to me. Way wrong on some issues, and he's a friend of Liz Cheney. Another comment is about the Texas traffic. We have a whole lot of illegals and transplants from other states. They do not necessarily drive friendly. But, a contest between Texas and California is really no contest at all. TEXAS wins hands down.

I spent a lot of time in Houston in the late 70s. Turned down a transfer to our office there which would have meant a significant raise. It rained for two days; then stopped for two or three; then…. repeat. Endlessly. The ground was like a sponge. The humidity would smack you in the face the moment you got off the plane and stay with you until you left. In that era Houston was going very trendy. Discos everywhere. Barbie Doll blonde was the current fad; I was a total misfit as a brunette… just wasn’t done. People were superficial. I don’t know where Schlichter lives, but it isn’t in the parts of California where I have always been fortunate to live. Move to Houston? Forgetaboutit. (And who would ruin a perfectly good hamburger with mustard?)

I’ve driven in both LA and all the way across Texas. I’ll take Texas any day, but I will note that there are insane and rude drivers everywhere. I see it here in South Carolina every time I get in the car. I blame it on a lack of good manners, which apparently are no longer taught anywhere in society.

I've also had serious doubts about Dan Crenshaw. He hasn't made his voice heard in support of President Trump, he's denied anything being hinky with the election/voting, had a good time writing and starring in a campaign ad with some other veterans and conservative folks (, as well as what #2 said. I'm hoping he starts to show his readiness to fight for and defend our conservative rights. Having fought for our country he isn't guilty of stolen valor. But presenting himself as a strong conservative, then hanging with the rinos (Liz, Mitt, etc.) makes him guilty of misused valor, IMHO. I really want to see him do well for our country.

I always love everything that Kurt writes, but I think he should not only consider comparing CA with Texas, he should also give Florida a comparison! We have the Best Governor in the Country. We have wonderful weather, and if he's a golfer he won't find a better place than The Villages to live. We are armed, have the most Conceal and Carry Permit in the country and great Shooting Ranges to practice if you care to! We do not tolerate Looters, Mobs, BLM burning down our Cities or Towns. Yes, we do have a few pockets where Thugs live (and you wouldn't want to drive through), but they are content to kill and plunder each other, so we ignore them. I've never been to Texas, but I've been to CA and I would never want to live there!! But then I was raised in Illinois, and right now, I wouldn't want to ever live there again either!

It's true about the crowding. When we moved here over 20 years ago there had been an exodus about 5 years prior when the Telecom boom went bust, with many tech workers packing up for California and the Internet boom. Fast forward to today and the game I made up while driving called, "Count the out of state license tags at the stop light," as there are usually up to a half dozen at a time in areas of North Dallas. Real estate and land prices are inflating beyond crazy for Texas, even in rural areas with no job growth. This can only be a harbinger of bad economic news. All bubbles pop and what we will be left with are grotesque California-style, mega-apartment-complexes, an postage-stamp-lot housing additions, all paid for through under the table bribes by huge out of state developers. When people moving here can't find the "glorious job" they'd dreamed of being here, like the gold nugget in a Klondike stream, or our Texas summer heat causes Yankee migrants to wilt and long for the ice hockey, Lutefisk, and fresh Kielbasa, what will be left behind are cities within cities of cheap-built housing that can't break even on rent, so the owners will petition the Feds for rent subsidies to pack in welfare families and illegals. Thus begins the downward slide to ghettos and destroyed communities. Greed is a powerful drug, which often destroys the very object of its lust.

He's right about the traffic in Houston -- nightmare. It's rare that someone figures out that much of the problem is the feeder streets which allow a driveway into a strip mall every 50 yards. Then try driving FM1960. Worst I've ever seen. Billboards and signs by the millions. Driveways every 25 yards. If you've never been on FM1960, use google street view to get a feel -- I would never suggest anyone drive on that road that didn't have to.

To those who look down their nose at Texas, and wouldn't dream of moving here...good. Because we really don't want your snobby self here anyway. :) Re: Houston. Houston is a big city, just like many other big cities. You think Los Angeles is better?? But that city is surrounded by lots of suburbs, like Spring, Conroe, Tomball, and The Woodlands, to name a few - all of which I have or had relatives living in, and which are great places. I assume most people can differentiate between a big city and the community around it.... but maybe not? I live in Fort Worth, and we've tripled in size in my lifetime. And I hate driving on I35 in that traffic, but I love the area I live in, surrounded by farms, trees, and a quiet neighborhood. Texas also just posted the most new jobs in the country, and our in-state employment is at a record high. And we don't have to walk around with cloth strips attached to our faces. We go to church (and, at least at my large church, use the common cup!), eat, shop, play, go to movies, malls, and grocery stores, and even gun shows, smile at and greet one another, without any masks or people asking for proof of vaccine status. And there is NOTHING like a road trip down the back roads of Texas where there REALLY IS so tons of wide open spaces. It's glorious. Farms, fields, trees, wild flowers, miles with no (or only the occasional) houses or businesses, small towns with little shops and friendly people and good food. Yeah, if you think we're not good enough for you, just keep thinking that. Please don't feel the need to come here and ruin what we've got going on. ;)

Oh, the bumper stickers. He's correct, though I've seen plenty of Trump stickers. BUT, in the past 2 weeks, I've also seen 4 FJB stickers - not the kinder, gentler Brandon version, either. :D And, the Bushes were not born in Texas, though I realize W lived here a long time, and actually used to be a decent guy back then. He's mistaken on the burger debate because we actually have both Whataburger and In-N-Out here (which I found to be sadly very overrated from what I expected).

Returned to Maryland to visit family during the holiday. In about a day I've experienced all the reasons I left for the Houston suburbs. It's back to the USSR, with mask mandates, and unhappy people schlepping around in misery. I'm counting the days when I can slip back out of the Land of un-Pleasant Living, the California of the East Coast.

If I’m a California snob for preferring my native state, then what the heck am I doing rooting for the UT Longhorns after recording every sports event of theirs that I’ve recorded? DH is a graduate of UT. It is possible to prefer one’s own state without being a snob. It’s also possible to be a Californian without wanting to live in Los Angeles or San Francisco. Somehow I am reminded of a reply here years ago by a woman from Texas: “I’ve never been to California, but I know I wouldn’t like it….” As for driving across Texas, done that. Twice. Highway 10. Three days (towing a race car trailer.)

As a neighbor north of La Rio Roja, I've been from Odessa to Kilgore and Denton to Galveston. Spent some time in Rock Port and Padre Island. In the 80s I had to travel to LA twice a week from Phx for my job. There is no question that Texans are the more tolerant and accepting people than those I had the unfortunate duty to work with in The City of Angles (sic). Oh, and they have Buc-ee's in Texas!

For all the reasons discussed here about the specialness of our Texas, I am working hard to help get Colonel Allen B. West elected Governor. Yes, like it or not, we are changing due to the continuing influx of millions seeking good jobs and a better quality of life. West Texas rural areas of my youth are sprawling with tract homes and mcmansions. We are going to have water issues coming up too. We are at a very serious crossroads and we need bold and thoughtful conservative governance. Go along get along Bush globalists are not going to really fight the left.

OK, I actually moved from San Clemente, CA to New Braunfels, TX, so my perspective is somewhat different. First, weather is better in coastal Cali, so let's just get that right out of the way. You will learn to love air conditioning here until you acclimate. Yes, people are dramatically nicer in Texas. It's Kind of shocking. Traffic is much worse. Roads are badly laid out. CalTrans does a better job. Texas has a long way to go to get as good. Also, many, MANY Semis and monster pickup trucks. As a side note, they actually tend to follow the speed limit here. In Cali. traffic laws are more like suggestions. Traffic into San Antonio is not as bad as into LA, but it's getting worse on a daily basis. Real estate was a great value when I moved here 2 years ago. It's since exploded. Austin has gotten particularly expensive. Research on RedFin and Zillow to get n idea of what the deal is for you. Usually no masks, but some places will ask. A polite decline works. Some school districts are requiring masks. Parents are attending board meetings and helping the boards to get their minds right, but the cities of Austin and Antonio are still hard left. I don't drink, so don't care about beer. Burgers. P. Terry's is a better representative of Texas fast food cuisine. And We like it. In-N-Out is here too. For a real road food treat, check out Buc'ees on I-35. Overall good food is harder to find and more expensive outside of the cities. We're still looking for an equivalent to Thai Bite in Aliso Viejo. Also, yelp is if limited use. Most people are too nice to leave the scathing reviews some of these places deserve.. Hope you were helped and entertained by this.

Schlichter should bail out, too. Born in California, visit frequently, would NEVER go back to live. As to Houston...I've been enough to know that I wouldn't want to live there. WAY too big. But attitude in Texas is, on the average, way better than in Cali. Besides, seems like 75% of California is populated by Mexicans already and going up.

Between Joe Biden’s poor poll numbers and his party being increasingly out of touch with the American public, the Democratic Party is widely expected to suffer devastating losses in the 2022 midterms. But prominent Democrat lawyer Marc Elias is predicting that Democrats will try to use litigation to prevent some duly elected Republicans from serving. “My prediction for 2022: Before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House Members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress,” Elias tweeted last week. “We may even see litigation.” [Tweet] Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center scoffed at Elias’s absurd idea.

When running against Donald Trump for president, Joe Biden often made the now-ironic charge that any president who has allowed so many deaths from COVID-19 should never be in the White House. Today, there are more deaths from COVID under Biden than under Trump -- and that is even with the vaccine. But it isn't just on health issues that Trump's presidency is looking so much better and competent in hindsight. Everywhere I go these days, people come up to me and say something like this: "I didn't like some of the things Trump said or the way he acted,

Despite President Biden's assurances to the contrary, inflationary pressure is apparently here to stay as his administration looks toward the start of his second year in office and may hope for some relief from the negative "Democrats in disarray" narrative swirling around the White House. However badly Biden may want the economy to improve, Americans surely wish so more fervently. With the most expensive Thanksgiving and Christmas in memory in the rear-view mirror, there are unfortunately more price hikes to come as manufacturers and producers pass the costs of lasting inflation on to consumers. As The Wall Street Journal announced, "Everything from coffee to mustard is getting more expensive next year."

In this episode of “Republicans Are Racist”… Let’s begin with a basic premise that should be supported by every loyal citizen of every country on the planet: Non-citizens should not be allowed to vote in elections. Period. That should not even be a question. Unless you’re a Congressional Democrat, that is. In that case, undocumented Democrats are your thing. As reported by John Solomon’s Just the News, the issue of “non-citizen” voting first came to a boil big-time at the end of the 2018 Georgia governor’s race, when Democrat Stacey Abrams suggested the “blue wave” of voters she hoped would put in her office included the “documented and undocumented,”

Karolyn Grimes starred in the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” as James Stewart’s precocious 6-year-old daughter Zuzu Bailey. The part in the 1946 Frank Capra-directed film changed Grimes’ life, but not necessarily for the better. The now-81-year-old has revealed the tragic reason why she decided to leave Tinseltown. Her departure from the limelight began with the loss of both her parents when she was about 12 years old, she told Fox News.

Through December 21, 2021, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported a total of 5,779 unruly passenger incidents this year. Of these incidents, the FAA has launched 1,054 investigations, which is approximately a 600% increase from the annual average of the previous twenty-five years. Historically, factors such as overcrowding, cancellations, and narrow seats cause in-flight incidents. However, this year, the mask mandate, which the FAA instituted on February 1, has been the major factor causing the massive increase in incidents. Despite a multitude of studies showing the ineffectiveness of masks and the potential negative health effects, some airlines are now increasing their restrictions and forcing passengers to wear masks while eating and drinking.

The House of Representatives has passed a bill that seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam. The bill, H.R. 5665, is truly remarkable as it amounts to Congress making a law respecting the establishment of Islam and reducing the United States government into a tool of the world’s ayatollahs. The actual text of the bill not only seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam around the world – and solely against Islam at that – but even requires the federal government to reorganize some portions of the State Department along the lines of an Islamic religious institution which will be responsible for interpreting the Quran.
