Love it here! Open country, minimal taxes, pickup trucks, guns and bikes.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

I'm bidding an enormous job in Texas right now. They've got their construction shit together there too!

60% cheaper to construct highway per mile in Texas than it is in Illinois.

Food for thought

yes, but you forget the 90+ days of below 32 degree weather we get here. if i ever get the opportunity to jump ship out of IL to TX or anywhere in the south, I'm gone!

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Hahaha yeah really.

Fuck these cold winters. I dunno about texas...maybe a bit too hot for me. Between the motorcycles and bass fishing though, i'm definitely getting the fuck outta this area.

96 in san antonio is a lot nicer than 96 here with the elevated humidity.

dallas, austin and san antonio are fantastic.

houston is one of the worst places to find yourself.

if i took any of you fuggers to one of those 2-stepping dance places your jaws would be on the floor the whole time. the women are incredible.

Been here for 2 1/2 years now and here are my thoughts:

Chicago food > Texas food (Rudy's is the only good BBQ)
Chicago people > Texas people
-Texans are polite bc they were brought up to be, people around Chicago tend to be more genuine IMO
Chicago weather > Texas weather (I miss fall the most)
Chicago drivers > Texas drivers (they slow down for every overpass on the FWY and have never been introduced to a turn signal)

That being said, the cost of living and my job far outweigh any negatives.

I drove a semi for 5 years, 3 of them in Chicago, and I can garun-damn-tee ya I'd rather be rollin in Dallas. Dallas has infrastructure to support the traffic and it keeps growing. The only thing Chicago does is resurface. Turn signals...nobody uses them

Texas has 90+ degrees weather only during 3 months. Other than that its freakin awesome!

Its a billion times better than the snow, wind, sleet of Chicago where you pretty much have to be encapsulated for half the year.

Wrong. The drivers here are much more courteous. Too many vatos in Chicago cutting you off. Plus the snow and salt ruin the roads over there.

Here most of the infrastructure is brand new and I have yet to spot a pothole. Drove in rush hour traffic, which was very fluid compared to Chicago's.

Dallas has new highway construction projects in the surrounding suburbs. Try to land a project here.

90% of the turds I arrest say thank you and are polite, but they are still turds. I'll take snow and sleet over 95+ with heat index over 100 from June-September. You must not be in Houston, drive on I-45 or US-290 during rush hour and tell me what you think.
