Arrow Represent Texas.....this is why

TEXAS

When you're from Texas, people that you meet ask
you questions
like, Do you have any cows?" "Do you have
horses?" "Bet you got a bunch of
guns, eh?"

They all want to know if you've been to
Southfork. They watched Dallas.

Have you ever looked at a map of the world? Look
at Texas with me just for
a second. That picture, with the Panhandle and
the Gulf Coast,
and the Red River and the Rio Grande is as much a
part of you as anything
ever will be.. As soon as anyone anywhere in the
world looks at it they
know what it is. It's Texas. Pick any kid off
the street in Japan and
draw
him a picture of Texas in the dirt and he'll know
what it is. What happens
if I show you a picture of any other state? You
might get it maybe after a

second or two, but who else would? And even if
you do, does it ever stir
any
feelings in you?
In every man, woman and child on this planet,
there is a person
who wishes just once he could be a real live
Texan and get up on a horse
or ride off in a pickup. There is some little bit
of Texas in everyone.

Did you ever hear anyone in a bar go, "Wow...so
you're from Iowa?
Cool, tell me about it?" Do you know why?
Because there's no place
like Texas.

Texas is the Alamo. Texas is 183 men standing in
a church,
facing thousands of Mexican nationals, fighting
for freedom, who had the
chance to walk out and save themselves, but
stayed instead to fight and die

for the cause of freedom. We send our kids to
schools named William B.
Travis and James Bowie and Crockett and do you
know why? Because those men
saw a line in the sand and they decided to cross
it and be heroes. John
Wayne paid to do the movie himself. That is
the Spirit of Texas.

Texas is Sam Houston capturing Santa Ana at San
Jacinto.

Texas is huge forests of Piney Woods like the
Davy Crockett National
Forest.

Texas is breathtaking mountains in the Big Bend.

Texas is the unparalleled beauty of bluebonnet
fields in the Texas Hill
Country.

Texas is the shiny skyscrapers in Houston and
Dallas.

Texas is world record bass from places like Lake
Fork.

Texas is Mexican food like nowhere else, not even
Mexico.

Texas is the Fort Worth Stockyards, Bass Hall,
the Ballpark in Arlington
and the Astrodome.

Texas is larger-than-life legends like Michael
DeBakey, Denton Cooley,
Willie Nelson, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings,
Janis Joplin, Kris
Kristofferson, Tom Landry, Darrell Royal, Rick
Husband, Eric Dickerson,
Earl
Campbell, Nolan Ryan, Sam Rayburn, George Bush,
Lyndon B.Johnson, and
George
W. Bush.

Texas is great companies like Dell Computer,
Texas Instruments
and Compaq. And LOCKHEED MARTIN AEROSPACE, Home
of the F-16 Jet Fighter and

the JSF Fighter.
Texas is NASA.
Texas is huge herds of cattle and miles of crops.

Texas is skies blackened with doves, and fields
full of deer.

Texas is a place where towns and cities shut down
to watch the
local High School Football game on Friday nights
and for the Cowboys on
Monday Night Football, and for the Night In Old
San Antonio River Parade in

San Antonio. Texas is ocean beaches, deserts,
lakes and rivers, mountains
and prairies, and modern cities.

If it isn't in Texas, you probably don't need it.

No one does anything bigger or better than it's
done in Texas.

By federal law, Texas is the only state in the
U.S. that can
fly its flag at the same height as the U.S. flag.
Think about that for a
second. You fly the Stars and Stripes at 20 feet
in Maryland, California,
or
Maine and your state flag, whatever it is, goes
at 17 feet. You fly the
Stars and Stripes in front of Pine Tree High in
Longview or anyplace else
at
20 feet, the Lone Star flies at the same height -
20 feet. Do you know why?

Because it is the only state that was a republic
before it became a state.

Also, being a Texan is as high as being an
American down here.
Our capitol is the only one in the country that
is taller than the capitol
building in Washington, D.C. and we can divide
our state into five states
at
any time if we wanted to! We included these
things as part of the deal
when we came on. That's the best part, right
there.
Texas even has its own power grid!!

If you are a REAL TEXAN you won't even need to be
told to pass this on!

Bush came to Texas when he was 2. Lived in H-town and Midland. But, yeah, I don't claim him either.

I love the fact that everyother sate is eithe jealous or hates us. I've been to quite a few other states as well and I remember selling my cowboy hat in New York to a guy who wanted a authentic hat for $300 bucks and it was only a 10x hat. If your a true Texan you know what I'm talking about.

When I first moved down here, my family would always ask me if everyone road horses and if it was really like the Western movies down here. I would tell them the only thing that is the same is the fact that a lot of ppl would show off there rifles and shotguns on the inside of the read windows of their trucks.
