It seems there were these two fellas, one from New York and one from Texas. Each time the fella from Ny said something positive about his state the fella from texas would say how they had something bigger and better in Texas. Finally the New Yorker was gettin upset and said " well we have the great Niagra Falls up here and I'll bet you don't have any falls like that down there in Texas". After a second the Texan said "no... no we don't but, we got us a plumber who could fix that leak". Lol

a texan was arguing with an alaskan in a bar one nite. the alaskan told him to pipe down or they'd cut alaska in half and texas would become the third largest state! :)

one of the rights Texas was given in the original admission annexation was that it could with statewide popular voter approval divide it'self into as many as six separate states. That provision was abolished at the end of the war of northern aggression.

Northern agression?    Posted 01-23-2004 at 08:46:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nooo that would be "Northern Superiority!"
Now's the time to try again, PC crowd says it isn't permissible to spank wayward children.

That Texas only wanted liberation from Mexico due to the Mexican Constitution outlawing slavery...The US wanted territory and we were allowing the 'states' to determine their own slavery laws at that time...

Remember the Alamo...And what it really stood for...

Salmoneye, Pass me that really big spoon, will ya?

Is that why there were so many Mexican slave camps? Work or get shot, might still be going on today for most want to come over here. Long live Texas!

being Texas born and raised there has always been a friendly rivalry between Tex/NY. When the oil business went bust in the mid '80s there was stickers all over wall street investment offices that said "don't mess with Texas". That was a popular bumper sticker Texas tourism promoted. The wall street bunch meant it an entirely different way.
I still go down to Houston a lot. Right after 9-11 it was not uncommon to see guys walking around with their western boots and hats and a "I luv NY" tee shirt. Nobody thought it strange either.
