12/07/2005: Thought for the Day:
Actually, reading your post, I think back to our lawyer at The Oleo Strut coffeehouse in Killeen, Davis Bragg - native Texan, grad of Baylor Law - whose house was so waaaaaaaay far back from the country road that I commented about that to him, to which he said "yes, it's out of range." That's what it takes to be a liberal in Texas.
"The War of Northern Aggression"????? How about "The War to Save the Union from Southern Treason" - a battle we still fight, now that the "Jaybirds" and the rest of the unreconstrcted Southern traitor scum are the modern Republican Party. My great-great-great-grandfather, Quaker abolitionist and founding member of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, has been spinning in his grave the past 30 years that these sons of Carribean pirates masquerading as "Southern aristocracy" have been dancing around pretending to be "patriots."
Texas: the biggest social swamp in America, founded by back alley assassins (Jim Bowie), drunken corrupt hillbilly liars (Davy Crockett), and failed morons fleeing their history ahead of their creditors (Steven Austin). That the place is still run by bank robbers and murderers is no surprise. Thank God I was removed from that dung heap before my brains were damaged.
Texas: the one state that should be EXPELLED from the union for 160 years of crimes against humanity. We'd immediately raise tha national IQ average by 50 points.
native-born Texan and not proud of it
