This time, you’ll find me agreeing with Roy Bragg:
Texas: Better than New York and then some
Yes, indeed. I sat down and watched the Lewis Black video, and it was, well, classic Lewis Black bullshit. Don’t fuck with New York, eh? One wonders what the Silver Springs, Maryland native who considers Washington, D.C. his hometown is going to do if we don’t heed his warning. Pull out a knife? One would think he’d know better, if he actually believes everything New Yorkers do about Texas — particularly that we’re all a bunch of heavily-armed lunatics.
Speaking of which, one quote from Mr. Black struck me as particularly absurd:
“People come here from all over the world for the freedom to live as they choose.”
ROTFLMAO. Whatever. I guess they’re golden for that, as long as those choices don’t include, among many other things, owning a gun (let alone carrying one), drinking a soda bigger than 16 ounces, or donating food to the homeless. Black characterizes it as “the city that never sleeps,” where you can get an omelet with a side of meatloaf at 3 in the morning. If such panem et circenses are worth it to them, they’re welcome to it, but I’m sure a lot of New York State business owners would still find Taco Cabana, Whataburger, Jim’s, Waffle House, etc. a worthy trade-off.
