TEXAS

When you're from Texas, people that you meet ask you questions like, Do you have any cows?" "Do you have horses?" "Bet you got a bunch of guns, eh?"

They all want to know if you've been to Southfork. They watched Dallas.

Have you ever looked at a map of the world? Look at Texas with me just for a second. That picture, with the Panhandle and the Gulf Coast, and the Red River and the Rio Grande is as much a part of you as anything ever will be.. As soon as anyone anywhere in the world looks at it they know what it is. It's Texas. Pick any kid off the street in Japan and draw him a picture of Texas in the dirt and he'll know what it is. What happens if I show you a picture of any other state? You might get it maybe after a second or two, but who else would? And even if you do, does it ever stir any feelings in you?

In every man, woman and child on this planet, there is a person who wishes just once he could be a real live Texan and get up on a horse or ride off in a pickup. There is some little bit of Texas in everyone.

Did you ever hear anyone in a bar go, "Wow...so you're from Georgia? Cool, tell me about it?" Do you know why? Because there's no place like Texas.

Texas is the Alamo. Texas is 183 men standing in a church, facing thousands of Mexican nationals, fighting for freedom, who had the chance to walk out and save themselves, but stayed instead to fight and die for the cause of freedom. We send our kids to schools named William B. Travis and James Bowie and Crockett and do you know why? Because those men saw a line in the sand and they decided to cross it and be heroes. John Wayne paid to do the movie himself. That is the Spirit of Texas.

Texas is Sam Houston capturing Santa Ana at San Jacinto.

Texas is "Juneteenth" and Texas Independence Day.

Texas is huge! forests of Piney Woods like the Davy Crockett National Forest.

Texas is big breasts. (Sorry that needed to be added.)

Texas is breathtaking mountains in the Big Bend.

Texas is the unparalleled beauty of bluebonnet fields in the Texas Hill Country.

Texas is the beautiful, warm beaches of the Gulf Coast of South Texas.

Texas is the shiny skyscrapers in Houston and Dallas.

Texas is world record bass from places like Lake Fork.

Texas is Mexican food like nowhere else, not even Mexico.

Texas is the Fort Worth Stockyards, Bass Hall, the Ballpark in Arlington and the Astrodome.

Texas is larger-than-life legends like Michael DeBakey, Denton Cooley, Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin, Kris Kristofferson, Tom Landry, Darrell Royal, ZZ Top, Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell, Nolan Ryan,
Sam Rayburn, George Bush, Lyndon B.Johnson, and George W. Bush.

Texas is great companies like Dell Computer, Texas Instruments and Compaq. And LOCKHEED MARTIN AEROSPACE,! Home of the F-16 Jet Fighter and the JSF Fighter.

Texas is NASA.

Texas is huge herds of cattle and miles of crops.

Texas is skies blackened with doves, and fields full of deer.

Texas is a place where towns and cities shut down to watch the local High School Football game on Friday nights and for the Cowboys on Monday Night
Football, and for the Night In Old San Antonio River Parade in San Antonio. Texas is ocean beaches, deserts, lake s and rivers, mountains and prairies, and modern cities.

If it isn't in Texas, you probably don't need it.

No one does anything bigger or better than it's done in Texas.

By federal law, Texas is the only state in the U.S. that can fly its flag at the same height as the U.S. flag. Think about that for a second. You fly the Stars and Stripes at 20 feet in Maryland, California, or Maine and your state flag, whatever it is, goes at 17 feet. You fly t! he Stars and Stripes in front of Pine Tree High in Longview or anyplace else at 20 feet, the Lone Star flies at the same height - 20 feet. Do you know why? Because it is the only state that was a republic before it became a state.

Also, being a Texan is as high as being an American down here. Our capitol is the only one in the country that is taller than the capitol building in Washington, D.C. and we can divide our state into five states at any time if we wanted to! We included these things as part of the deal when we came on. That's the best part, right there.

Texas even has its own power grid!!

:heart:
History lesson for today.

Yeah right, from what I hear Texas didn't wanna be in the states anyway, and there's a tonnnnnn of mexicans there, am i rite?
There are a lot of illegals, there isn't a thing they can do to get Texas back into Mexico.

Texas didn't want to be in the states from the start, it wanted to be its own republic seperate from Mex and USA.

Bah whatever...

Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin :cool:
And Liverpool, a place probably a millionth of the size of Texas produced George Harrison, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Ringo Star. That's one name more than I recognise from the Texas list. ;)

Texas is Sam Houston capturing Santa Ana at San Jacinto. Nothing like capturing the guy after he was worn out from the massacres at The Alamo and Goliad.

Texas is huge! forests of Piney Woods like the Davy Crockett National Forest. Honestly, there's a whole lot of nothing besides this

Texas is big breasts. (Sorry that needed to be added.)
Fake, but pretty

Texas is the unparalleled beauty of bluebonnet fields in the Texas Hill Country. Don't mind the toxic waste dumps

Texas is the beautiful, warm beaches of the Gulf Coast of South Texas.
And pungent brown water, too.

Texas is the shiny skyscrapers in Houston and Dallas.
You can see them through the smog? Holy shit!

Texas is world record bass from places like Lake Fork.
We may be ranked near the bottom in education, but we gots some bass, son.

Texas is Mexican food like nowhere else, not even Mexico.
All the good cooks work at Applebees now.

Texas is the Fort Worth Stockyards, Bass Hall, the Ballpark in Arlington and the Astrodome.
You mean Ameriquest Field? We don't like to mention "that" team.

Texas is larger-than-life legends like Michael DeBakey, Denton Cooley, Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin, Kris Kristofferson, Tom Landry, Darrell Royal, ZZ Top, Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell, Nolan Ryan,
Sam Rayburn, George Bush, Lyndon B.Johnson, and George W. Bush.
Let's count the dead people in here. Oh, and George Bush and George W. Bush aren't from here, there just wasn't any oil in the north.

Texas is great companies like Dell Computer, Texas Instruments and Compaq. And LOCKHEED MARTIN AEROSPACE,! Home of the F-16 Jet Fighter and the JSF Fighter.
Don't forget the F/A-22, we make the center fuselage.

Texas is NASA.
Just like space; pretty, but void.

Texas is huge herds of cattle and miles of crops.
I saw a cow once in a picture.

Texas is skies blackened with doves, and fields full of deer.
Those aren't doves, those are crows and their shit will eat through paint like a bulimic cheerleader after a football game.

Texas is a place where towns and cities shut down to watch the local High School Football game on Friday nights and for the Cowboys on Monday Night
Football, and for the Night In Old San Antonio River Parade in San Antonio. Texas is ocean beaches, deserts, lake s and rivers, mountains and prairies, and modern cities.
And you can buy liquor in a drive-thru! Wooo!

If it isn't in Texas, you probably don't need it.
* - does not apply to actual products

No one does anything bigger or better than it's done in Texas.
I dunno, the world's largest ball of twine is pretty big.

Texas even has its own power grid!!
Actually, that does kick ass.
