Victoria, TX

Victoria, Texas (pop. 55,000) is a town about 80 miles west of Houston.

Local Hispanic leaders there, in opposition to pending Immigration
Legislation, boycotted all Caucasian owned businesses in the Victoria area
this past weekend as a demonstration of their economic impact on the
community. The boycott was declared a success by the Hispanic community,
noting that revenue in Caucasian owned businesses was down by 19%.

Business owners declared the boycott a success as well, pointing out that
shoplifting was reduced by 77%, money orders sent out of the country were
down by 97%, and the cost of daily clean-up and trash collection was down by
84%. Shoppers reported that they could actually hear English being spoken
throughout the community for the first time in recent memory, and customers
actually paid for purchases with real money, not government debit cards...

That's directed at you, UHHHbama

A friend of mine moved to that shithole last year, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why. I hate that town.

Give me a dollar.

A couple months ago on the way back from a rig builder we (well, I was just a passenger) almost ran an F250 straight off the road (the road did a 90* turn) into a fucking canal at 60mph... I haven't liked that city since. LOL.
