The boom shows no sign of ending.

Fort Worth is now the 13th-largest city in the United States, behind Jacksonville, Florida, and ahead of Columbus, Ohio, as well as San Francisco, according to the latest Census Bureau population estimates released Thursday.

“Fort Worth’s rapid growth speaks to our incredible quality of life, business friendly climate and affordable cost of living,” said Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price. “Of course, substantial growth presents both great opportunities as well as new challenges to strategically manage our growth without compromising what makes Fort Worth a unique place to live, work, and play.”

Perhaps I should have ignored you? I mean, most posters only answer the posts that they want to on any given thread, including you. Right?

You’re the only one with a problem (and Les, slightly).
All I said was I didn’t want to address your particular points and gave my reasons. Others understood.

Perhaps you were upset that I didn’t want to discuss what you wanted? Who knows?

I do know I am done explaining. It’s SO boring!

You dont get it Eddie

You were never interested in views that never agreed with you

This is a debate forum and for you to dictate what can and cannot be said on a thread, shows a form of authoritism.

For you to dictate what can be discussed is problematic. It shows you are not open minded and only open to views that agree with you

How is that even a debate?

This discussion is pointless if you keep thinking she was dictating what could and could not be said.

Because she only said she wasn't going to talk about the topics you and Les raised. She didn't say you couldn't talk about them.

Basically, it'd be like if I came up to you and said, "Hey Didge, let's talk sports" and you were like "Okay" and I said, "Hey, you want to talk about baseball?" and you said, "Don't really care about baseball, so I won't have anything to say."

Not "Don't talk about baseball." Just "I won't have anything to say."

Not "Don't talk about baseball." Just "I won't have anything to say."

And there you have it and showing a poor bias. On what relity, were myself and Eilzel not on point of the discussion?

You and Eddie have decided we were not and thus are views were irrelevant

How arrogant can you possible get

Eddie is like most religious zealots

If they do not like opposing views, they seek to shut them down and you are pandering to this

Maybe you can show how Eilzel and myself were not on topic

I find your defense here, really creepy and sucking up to what you often stand against

So, how were myself and Eilzel not on point in the debate. Even after i actually went off the point Eddie actually highlighted?

Would you likle me to post this as well to porve how really bad you are being as a suck up here?

If you think we were not on point, is not only insulting to me and Eilzel. Its claiming we never understood the article or what Eddie highlighted. You are basically claiming we are thick

Do you know what is the worst part about this

Being that i have actually admitted to be wrong on a number of occasions. Having people reason views to me, showing I do listen and yet here we see Eddie and ben knuckle down and even insullt my intelligence. Claiming that what I argued had no relevance, to what Eddie highlighted. We see a view on sports. As if I was not even on the same page, as if a view that only she was right on this.

I mean how arrogant can you get

If this is the standard that Ben and eddie are setting and even worse that they are never wrong. I seriously question, what the fuck is the point in being here. To have the above load of crap. Simple have ben not even read what was argued and insult me and Eilzel and claim we were ignorant to the discussion says it all

I cannot believe what I am hearing. When someone states what can be debated or not, when that same person highlighted a point and then turns round and says my views basically do not matter and neither does Eilzel. They then wonder why we were pissed off?

That is twopeople close minded and unable to listen

Enjoy your forum, but if this is how you treat your guests. With such arrogance, and I thought I was bad being arrogant. Then you have both lost your way

I guess we could start over. Does anyone have any insight as to why people are flocking to Texas to live?

Maybe it's the weather?   tongue

If it was simply "the weather",  then Southern Queensland would be the fastest growing region in Oz,  while everybody would be deserting places like England, Russia, Greenland in droves..

That's obviously simply not the case, though..

So,  more relevant factors I would be looking at could be :  well paying employment, with job satisfaction, flexibility, decent work conditions;   comparatively "affordable" housing;   allied with reasonable standards of education, healthcare, recreation/sports facilities, tolerance  ?

I was being sarcastic about the weather. Most of California has far better weather, then most of Texas. But the reasons you mentioned, are exactly why people are leaving California, and moving to Texas.

This is much to much about a little reprise. When I recognize that someone is possessed with anger, more interested in hurling insults than advancing the subject, I suggest they they are 'upset' and take a break. It is to remind them of their change of attitude

Then enter didge, and all of a sudden we are talking about winning or losing (proving that it is his definition of debate). I think you are saying, eddie, that it's not so much the subject that has changed, but the attitudes. I agree.

That's why I was suggesting a little venting.

I’m bored of talking about it, Quill. It’s a simple enough concept. I only asked that we stuck to the question of the debate which was “why”. I didn’t want to discuss examples of “when” “how” or “what”.

It was that simple....well, to most people anyway...

Well, the above was the first chance I got to respond.  If you don't show up for a while, you get behind other postings, and other topics.

I usually go back to the last discussion that involved me.  Sometimes it appears like you are prolonging a discussion, when in fact it is your first chance to respond.

As of now, I'll drop it.

No it’s cool. I wasn’t saying I was bored of you or your comment, just bored of explaining a simple concept to a certain poster.
