Polar Opposites

As a lifelong Californio I'm down wid being the polar opposite of Texass. Interesting read in WaPo.


Texas, California embody red-blue divide
Last line:

More than any other pair of states, they stand as proxies for the national debate about the size and shape of government and which direction a divided America should go in the future.

Here is the problem with moving to Texas,,, You would have to live there.

I have visited Bakersfield in the '50's ... there was a sign on the front of a store stating No CHINESE, BLACKS OR INDIANS, DOGS ARE WELCOME ... and I would still take Bakersfield over Texass ...
Heh. Much more.

I've lived in Texas and I've lived in California. My opinion of Texas is similar to Phil Sheridan's: "If I owned Texas and Hell, I would rent Texas and live in Hell." Hell's living conditions would be better, as would be the company -- the problem with Texas is that it's full of Texans.
