    I bet if you pull the illegals out if the mix these numbers change dramatically.

    Next.

    Exactly - the stats are purely a reflection of the illegal alien invasion engineered by blue staters, who suffer far less from the consequences of their policy. To then turn this around and use it as a weapon against perry represents the ultimate in chutzpah.

    Lived in TX for 3 years. People very nice. But a state of alot of low paying jobs. In the end it was nice but too hot for me. Plus I could make alot more money further north. And I did.

    I'd rather be unemployed unless I can work a job that pays more than unemployment. Truth be told. Not going to work for minimum wage to help someone else get a leg up on me. That isnt my version of capitalism.

    The consequence of conservative dogma, a failed economic, social, and educational philosophy.

    Of course it’s unfair to pick on Texas, you’ll find similar data throughout the bright-red South. There are parts of ArkLaMiss that are almost third world.
