Houston, TX


re:
Undesirable Houston
- 6/2/2019
Lmao. Okay. Houston is ranked the most racially diverse city. As long as you aren't a jerk, no one cares what your race is. They may joke about it at most. Get better humor. https://wallethub.com/edu/most-diverse-cities/12690/

The average wage in Houston is $53,820. The U.S is $50,620. https://realestate.usnews.com/places/texas/houston/jobs


The waters in the gulf on the Texas coast not being blue like Florida, is a combination of temp and sediments from the rivers.

Certain times of the year our waters turn the same color. Not often and usually from.some storm bringing in clear waters.

It has nothing to do with oils. Btw the water are regularly tested and have been testing clean. Here's a barnie styled explanation " The Mississippi River empties into the Gulf. Not considering the tributaries this river has, the Mississippi alone carries roughly 2 million tons of sediment each day. This sediment is dumped into the Gulf waters around and near Louisiana heavier than other areas. But this sediment is also joined by sediment from the Red River. You see, the Red River joins up with the Mississippi to create the Atchafalaya River. Guess where that river empties…Yep, it’s the Gulf of Mexico." Then currents push those sediments to the Texas coast.

As for education Houston has a 7.5 rating out of 10. Not perfect sure. Yes, room to improve. However certainly not as horrific as some suggest. Houston has Rice University. Ranked #16 in national universities. https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/tx

The roads are in need of work. They are the most congested. On a positve note Houston is working on it. Not suprising, considering Houston is #5 in largest metro areas in the U.S. https://www.statista.com/statistics/183600/population-of-metropolitan-areas-in-the-us/ "

Houston ranked No. 9 in Travel + Leisure’s list of “America’s Most Attractive Cities” (2016)." " Houston ranked #9 in?Travel + Leisure? “Most Attractive Cities” (2016)" " Houston named the No. 2 most misunderstood city in the world by Jetsetter (2016)." https://www.visithoustontexas.com/media/houston-media-kit/awards-rankings/

re:
BIG MISTAKE!
- 2/4/2019
So basically, what we have here is a Left winged progressive, that wanted the positives of living in a invirament where ALL people are welcome. Regardless of political views and found out that also meant the "white republicans".

I am a multi racial woman. There are people of all political and religious backgrounds here. You can live and you wish and say what you wish. That's the beauty of Texas.

This person also exaggerates events that were held at the time for expression of freedom of speech.

Texas loves their guns. There were event where people brought their weapons to show the then presidency that they supported the second ammendment. That a big difference from a supposed " armed protest against obama".

Then this commentor complains about a rally? For real? So again because people are allowed to have freedom of expression and it is a view this person didn't like they gave the area a terrible rating.

Let me tell you the Houston area I know.

There are literally almost a even amount of Dems and Repubs. Neither have a large amount of extremists. There are a few nuts on both sides In texas you will not be protected from views you disagree with because you and everyone else is allowed to state them.

The mean people happen but they are not accepted by the culture as a whole

Most neighborhoods are well mixed. Some lean more Hispanic, Some Black, Some White. As long as you are kind and know how to take a joke, you will be fine.

The area is beautiful and a subtropical climate. The cost of living is way lower then the High taxes area of Miami. There is a great deal to do here and is not far from Dallas or San Antonio.

You just have to be willing to accept all people for who they are and not try to change in into the very place you left. Accept the place for the freedom you recieve.

Houston, TX


Most livable, lively, place. Most people are great - 2/4/2019
Houston, all the way out to the suburbs is awesome. Sure there are neighborhoods that suck. But you can find jobs. Our most up to date unemployment rating is 3.7%. Just hit that pavement. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.houstonchronicle.com/business/economy/amp/Houston-unemployment-rate-lowest-in-more-than-a-13781461.php

As a multiracial woman, I have had better exsperiences here than else where in regards to racial relations.

Houston is #30 in best places to live in the U.S. and #26 for best places to retire.https://realestate.usnews.com/places/texas/houston

Many people that haven't lived else where complain of expense. However, as some one how has lived all over the nation, I can tell you this is the most livable place I have ever lived. No income tax. Lil higher property taxes but it makes up between the no income tax and the lower average cost of living. It's basic math and balance.

There is so much to do no matter the budget. People are generally happier than they even realize. Houston was recently rank number 106 of the top 150 happiest cities in the u.s. https://wallethub.com/edu/happiest-places-to-live/32619/

Choose your neighborhoods wisely. Don't be afraid to have a realestate agent help you find a place, even if it's just for rentals.

There is a mostly balanced number of Dems, Repubs, Moderates. No real extreme views. Although it has been voting blue since the 1980s. Neither D or R have a large amount of extremists. There are a few nuts on both sides. In Texas you will not be protected from views you disagree with. You and everyone else is allowed to state your views as you see fit. Though I would say most Dems here would Not be progressive . They are more classic liberals.

Mean people happen but they are not accepted by the culture as a whole. Manners is important not just in Houston but Texas as a whole.

Most neighborhoods are well mixed. Some lean more Hispanic, Some Black, Some White. As long as you are kind and know how to take a joke, you will be fine. Houston got the too national rank by WalletHub for over all diversity. Link here https://wallethub.com/edu/most-diverse-cities/12690/

The area is beautiful and a subtropical climate. Most lf the year is wonderful. However we do have some intense heat months. We are humid. So if you don't like heat or humidty, i wouldn't recommend Houston.

The cost of living is way lower than the High taxed areas of say, Miami.

There is a great deal to do here and is not far from Dallas or San Antonio.

You have to be willing to accept all people for who they are and not try to change in into the very place you left. Accept the place for the freedom you recieve.

Springfield, OR


Not for large families or not for parental rights. - 2/4/2019
I lived her from Sept 2012 to Dec 2018. It was ok at first. Over the years the whole area has become.more and more unfriendly to moderate democrats, centrist or conservative people. If you have very large families it can be a issue for some people. The prices are insane. It is frankly unlivable. The people seem to think only rich people own houses and they just keep raising taxes higher and higher.
