Houston is a more international city, but my love for it is only a decimal above my love for Dallas. Dallas is at heart a red neck back water. In Houston, nine out of ten people you meet were not born here, which is a blessing because native Texans are generally, with some exceptions, a bunch of dumb motherfuckers. Their uber-conservative politics have turned the state as a whole into an environmental disaster area - it's the Banana Republic of the US. The only place you really find any progressive people is in Houston or in the university towns, otherwise it is bunch of people content to drink their own chicken shit while they choke to death. I am forced to domicile there by fate, but quite frankly, I live there as little as possible.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
