Texas Is the Land Of Opportunity - Err Kinda

The ever so esteemed current Republican Governor of Texas Rick Perry made the following statement on the campaign trail on why Texas is an amazing state, from the Texas Tribune...
 "There is still a land of opportunity, friends — it's called Texas," Perry said. "We're creating more jobs than any other state in the nation. ... Would you rather live in a state like this, or in a state where a man can marry a man?"
Obviously Texas is only a land of opportunity for those who are heterosexual... because gay people, under Gov. Perry's philosophy, just don't bring Texas the economic benefits like straight people do. Oh and Texans obviously don't want gay people in the state either...because that would mean that their would be no more jobs.

Very thinly veiled as well, to any astute reader, would be the blatant homophobia in Gov. Perry's statement. For would you rather live in a place like Texas - where we are all white heterosexual and Christian? Or someplace like Massachusetts and Iowa, where there are all of those queers? (That was my very loose paraphrasing of the last part of the Governors statement). But based upon the polling, for most Texans, they want to languish in their state sponsored bigotry and hatred.
