    The only thing worse than Texas is Texans.

    Insufferable assholes.

    In boot camp, they used to play that god awful Proud to be an American song to boost morale and the fucking Texans would cum all over themselves when Texas was mentioned.

    when Michigan and New York run TV commercials to attempt to lure business owners into returning, it proves they are fuck'd up, run by Dems/unions who have killed off most of their businesses, and have come up with 'clever' ideas to get new flies into the web.
    good luck with that, assholes :sarcastic:

    NY and Calif are still dead last and still make up the lion's share of the cash flow in the country.

    Yeah I can believe this list. The funeral business here in NY is still strong but not like it was 20 years ago. Most of the old timers are going fast and the baby boomers and people born within the last 40 years are all pretty much going for direct cremations or "green funerals" without embalming. Its hitting us hard now more than ever. I was looking at maybe getting additionally licensed in the Carolinas or the mid west just to have options just in case. Its something I've been pondering for the last 5 years. I could live like a king down south but I have all my roots and connections here on long island and NYC.

    :lol:

    20 year olds in Texas make 3 times your salary dude.

    Look dont be pissed off at the top states because you live in a shitty one. Hell even the cops here make much more than you do.
