Why Chato sould move to Texas now that he is retired
10 months ago

10. Much Cheaper living -if you can a afford a decent apartment or house in NY you can have a McMansion here.  That retirement income will go along way here.

9. Very Friendly -we get along with democrats just fine-

8. We respect the elderly

7. 2nd Amendment -nuff said-

6. Great Roads

5. All the Mexican Food and best BBQ in the world that you can eat

4. Lots to do: hunting, sporting events, music scene, world class theaters and orchestras, and all kinds of other great activities and social organizations.

3. Great Hospitals

2. You get to be an official Texan

1. It's warmer!

That is worse than lying! It's hot. It's so hot that without air conditioning you just want to lie down and sweat. And if you don't and try to function your brains get sun fried till your well addled. The heat in the deep South is just hideous.

I'm not sure Chato would fit in
In reply to Todd Ka, 10 months ago

Once I was on a plane in Lubbock, on the ground, when a New Yorker got on and smashed a cowboy's hat with his Gucci briefcase. The hat was in the overhead bin. The cowpoke started slapping the Jew around and the cops were called. They politely listened to both sides of the story then told the Jew "In Texas you don't mess with a man's brim." Then they left.

In Texas you have to treat people with respect or face the consequences.

It's not that bad!

You get used to it.  Really.  After a while it is no big deal.  The biggest mistake most people make is setting their AC to low in the summer.  That way you acclimate but still stay comfortable, and when you go outside it is not as shocking.

NY gets pretty hot during the summer too.

Yep. In TX he'd be in a heap of trouble in no time. He'll continue paying a premium for the "privilege" to live in his little ghetto world.

In Texas you have to treat people with respect or face the consequences.

And the first lesson in how to treat people with respect is call out Jews, Blacks, Mexicans, homosexuals, etc., by their label.

I think this "2nd Amendment" is not about the right to say "Amen" in church.

Retiring in Texas
In reply to Todd Ka, 10 months ago

True story:

A few years ago I sat next to a young lady from Texas on a flight and I asked about retiring in Texas... I was interested in activities, things to do.  She seemed a little stumped and then she said that I might be interesting in doing what her own retired Dad did.... which was to dress up like old time US Calvary Officers and ride horses around with others dressed the same, playing like they were Indian fighters in the Old West...you know, like the F Troop TV show.

I took a pass, but the shooting of pigs from helicopters with AK-47s that Todd mentioned on a previous thread sounds like a barrel of fun.

I did like the River Walk in San Antonio.

It's not that hot really, just hot enough to eliminate the need for an oven to bake cookies, you can just put the tray behind the wind shield for an hour or so, it does the job very nicely, the cookies will be just right.

What are the formalities to become a Texan ?
Exchange your balls for a big hat ?
Learn Spanish ?

I grew up in the deep South. I also lived without air conditioning and did physical labor without air conditioning in the deep South. I know where of I speak.

Yep, you got that right.  The land of fearful bigots. And apparently some people just have to land in Texass to be degraded to that level.
