  •  Sorry, I sure didn't vote for Dumbya. (0+ / 0-)

    Karl Rove and TPTB gave you Dumbya. I was dumbfounded that the rest of the nation fell for that lil chickenshit half-assed governor SOB, and I largely predicted what the outcome would be.
    But yeah, crazee is endemic here, facts and reality are totally superfluous in baggerstan.

    •  Nothing personal! (0+ / 0-)

      I left Texas.  I met Dubya a couple of times.   Tried to sell Dubya some gas and oil production equipment when I was selling the stuff.  He said he didn't need any.  He was drilling dry holes for tax breaks.

      I left Texas when oil was $12 a barrel.  At one time in the earlly '80s some of the oil economists projected that oil would sell for $40 a barrel.  We thought they were crazy!  Who could have imagined $100 a barrel oil?

      •  Then in the mid '80's oil went to ~$6/bbl (0+ / 0-)

        and places like Houston went bust, really busted (and that wasn't the only one).
        It was like a localized depression, construction stopped, homes and apartment complexes were abandoned, people would come to the door (at the office) asking for work, the whole state felt it. It was a good time to buy property though, which might have been the point of it all (pvt CT). I worked in/around Houston and many other places throughout my career, so got to know many areas fairly well (TX is a damned big diverse place).
        I think some of the ragging on Texas comes from reaction to our maybe exaggerated attitudes due to just living in a land of extremes (climate, economic, whatever).
