    I'm not from Texas but I'll tell you right here and right now why it's a great state, because it's the home of The Dallas Cowboys......and that other team.

    Yeah you're correct, I wrongly associate Phili/AC/NY as the NE but New England itself of course would be considered the NE NE. I didn't mention Boston simply bc I'v never been but have heard the same thing about its citizens.

    Yeah I was referring to the cities on the East down to DC (NY, Phili, AC-Camden, Baltimore) but don't know much about upstate NY outside of that you can go to Canada through Niagara Falls, etc.

    If you mean politically liberal, you're not even close...other than NYC, its traditionally republican.

    Really what? Somebody said people in the Northeast are arrogant. I said not the whole Northeast but certain cities. Are you offended about the upstate part? In the city we call all that Southern Canada. I doubt the first thing that pops into people's minds when they hear New York is Albany.

    Im really not qualified to speak to this topic except that Im a Texan.

    I was born in Dallas. Baylor Hospital. Im the only person in my entire family that has had the privilege to be born in Texas.

    My dad was in grad school in Dallas when I was born there. When I was 6 yrs old we moved from Dallas to the Wash DC area. When we left Dallas I remember one of the deacon's in our church putting a finger in my little chest and telling me to never forget I was a Texan, or at least thats what my parents have always told me.

    Ive always lived with some kind of awareness that Im a Texan. Didnt live there long. Spent the majority of my life in Redskin territory. I dont really know what it means but it means something. It means something to those who are Texans. If you're a Texan you get it. If you're not, you got no clue. I just know that Ive always considered myself different, considered myself more fortunate, simply because I was born in Texas.

    In all honesty for me it prob has to do mostly with the Dallas Cowboys. I was like some kinda persecuted warrior growing up as a Cowboy fan in Skins territory. I always felt better than the Skins fans. They have an obsession and hatred for all things Cowboys that is ever present 24/7/365. I always took that personally. I was a Texan. I was a Cowboy fan. It was not just a privilege, but it was my right to be better than a Skins fan. I was above them. I embraced the hate and wore it as a badge of honor.

    If you're a Texan you get it. If you're not, you have no clue.

    Part of that is at least when I was in school you had Texas history last year of elementary, Jr high and high school and many of us take great pride in this state. I have been to many other places and have enjoyed seeing other parts of the US but Texas is and always will be a special place to me.
