The U.S Through the Eyes of Texas

From what was spoken about in week 2 about the way that we view America, i thought that this map was appropriate. It illustrates the way that people in Texas view America and the way that it is divided.  From the map we can see that those who live in Texas take great pride in the things that come from their state, so in there mind it is the 'biggest and best' and clearly the heart of the United States, but comparatively they have split the rest of the U.S into stereotypical areas. For example the majority of the north east has been named 'Damn Yankee Land' or California being named 'Liar Land'. More so, although Canada is added, the way it is represented seems like it must be completely foreign to those who live in Texas.
