The number of New Yorkers
migrating to Texas grows

Houston Chronicle, by Erin Mulvaney

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/1/2013 11:48:20 PM

A growing number of New Yorkers have been moving away from the city lights to Texas´ wide open spaces, with the largest spike in the Houston area. The Center for an Urban Future, a New York-based think tank, analyzed IRS Migration data and found a 34 percent increase in the number of New York City residents moving to the major cities in Texas, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio, between 2005 and 2010. The group analyzed hundreds of counties across the United States and, compared to other cities that saw a decrease, it found Texas had positive

Well, I would say that I am sorry for you, but now you will find out what California went through... Maybe you´ll have a little compassion for us native Californians who had our state stolen from us by East Coast lefties. Hope you guys can stay stronger than we did.

Because the article does not state the number of Texans moving to New York (and they do), the article is fairly worthless.

Dear New Yorkers, the weather is terrible. The heat is unbearable. Texans don´t need to register their guns. They wear boots and have accents. They say yes/no m´am and yes/no sir. They drive pickup trucks and go to rodeos. They like football on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. They think that God and country are sacred. They wave Old Glory. They go to church on Sundays (before football) and sometimes other days during the week. You should reconsider moving to Texas. Seriously. I don´t think you´ll like it. Stay home or move to California. Signed: A transplanted Texan from Louisiana. P.S. Disregard this if you think Obama is an communist ass who is trying to destroy our country and you are a registered CONSERVATIVE Republican. In which case, Welcome.

Dallas, a former GOP stronghold, is falling to the influx of leftists. The entire state will go the way of California. The leftists never figure out that it´s nanny-state policies that ruined the states they are leaving. Look at the country´s worst performing cities and states. The overwhelming majority of these have been run by Democrats for decades.

I hope, if my finances ever allow me to move, I will be allowed back in, as I was born in Odessa.

That said, maybe the state could offer a "civics" class to every "new" citizen--at the DMV when they change their Driver´s License--free of charge, just to explain that excess taxes would have to be enacted to pay for all those "benefits" they miss so much that they left behind in their former high tax state.

Starting Tuesday, La Marque and Pasadena residents will be getting some extra daytime entertainment with the addition of two Black Hawk helicopters to their skies over the next three days. According to the City Of La Marque, the U.S. Army will be conducting flight testing this week, from Tuesday until Friday, though they didn´t specify what day they would be active. Chief Randall Aragon with the La Marque Police Department said the choppers will be flying low, but not making any landings.

FBI suspected iconic 1964 Ali-Liston
fight was rigged by mob

Fifty years ago today, Muhammad Ali “shocked the world” and beat one of the most fearsome fighters ever to put on a pair of boxing gloves, heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. But what if that storied fight was not what it seemed? It happened Feb. 25, 1964, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The film clip and sound bite have now become part of the American story — Liston quitting his stool before the eighth round, a young Cassius Clay, as Ali was known then, bouncing around the ring, waving his hands, yelling to the reporters at ringside who thought he would be killed by the more veteran boxer.

Susan Rice and the

Washington Post, by Richard Cohen    Original Article

Susan Rice ought to stay off “Meet the Press.” The last time she was on, she misrepresented what led to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. On Sunday she was back, this time misrepresenting critics of the Obama administration’s Syria policy. Last time her misrepresentation was unintentional. This time it wasn’t. I prefer it, though, when she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. In a frustrating colloquy with host David Gregory, Rice initially said all the right things about Syria. She called the war there “horrific,” which indeed it is. She said it had “spilled over and infused

At the Supreme Court, a

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

House GOP tax plan would

The long-awaited simplification of the tax code being drafted by House Republicans would slash the top income tax rate to 25 percent from 39.6 percent and impose a surtax on some of the nation’s wealthiest households. Under the proposal, set for release Wednesday, the vast majority of taxpayers would see little change in the ultimate size of their tax bills, according to a nonpartisan congressional analysis of the legislation. But the tax system would be dramatically simpler, with seven existing brackets collapsed into just two, set at 10 percent and 25 percent. In addition, the plan would impose a 10 percent surtax on certain types of earned

Russia cries ‘mutiny’

KIEV, Ukraine — Russian leaders expressed their distrust and dislike of Ukraine’s new government on Monday, saying it came to power through “armed mutiny,” just hours after the authorities here announced a nationwide manhunt for ousted president Viktor Yanukovych on charges of “mass murder of peaceful civilians.” Russia questioned the legitimacy of Ukraine’s interim leadership, charging that it used a peace deal brokered by Europe to make a power grab and to suppress dissent in Russian-speaking regions through “terrorist methods.” The tone was much harsher than any previous Russian response to the events of the past few days.

U.S. warns Russia to keep

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

NY Times Cartoon Suggests
´Climate-Change Deniers´

Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/23/2014 8:12:59 PM     Post Reply
Editorial cartoons often aren´t pretty, to paraphrase Steve Martin´s observation about the perils of comedy. But a cartoon in the Opinion section of today´s New York Times is downright ugly. The cartoon, alluding to this year´s brutal winter, suggests U.S. Department of Commerce "Strategies for Dealing With the 2014 Icicle Surplus." Among them are using icicles as "locally sourced hydration devices," "temporary doorsteps," and "brainteasers for dogs." Then comes a suggestion that one immediately looks at again, in disgust and disbelief -- icicles can also be used as "self-destructing sabers for dispatching climate-change deniers."

Another interesting Second Amendment case is coming up before the courts, and yes… it’s from Florida again. Wells Fargo is facing a legal challenge from one of their bank managers who was fired for coming to work while carrying her weapon concealed. Ivette Ros grew up in a house where her father kept guns. For her, it was a natural step to get a concealed weapons permit and then to carry a 9 mm handgun.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
