The above is probably just my usual sarcasm and in no way reflects my real opinion (and,or) may include subtleties of sufficient rarity as to appear to the unsuspecting like total gibberish. It may not be so much a matter that I'm far out, but rather that you have never been anywhere.

Texas has a lot of land. It also is mostly uninhabitable in some areas. A lot of other states have Power Generation plants in Texas. Texas has the ocean, Oil and is a nice area. It is hot as hell there is some areas it is a desert habitat. El-Paso is mostly Sand Dunes and sagebrush.

The irony of the "southerner cowboy culture" is that it is a creation from Hollywood**

Southerners, get your own identity**

I'd rather see us split Texas into 2 states, starting at the corner of New Mexico, cut straight across to Louisiana, keeping most of route 20 in "New Texas"**

We'll give old Texas to Mexico in exchange for the entire Tijuana / Ensenada / La Paz west branch of Mexico**
1.) getting banned from a website for being painfully unfunny
2.) creating an epic backfire thread where an entire community bands together to let you know how unfunny you are
person B: after submitting your definition for "federal employee", you probably got steppinthraxed

A swap for the rest of California (Baja) would be cool actually** Then Cali would stretch a good part up and down the North American continent**
