    Re: White House denies Texas secession

    One of my Texas FaceBook friends posted that old photoshopped picture of that Obama "Foreign Exchange," I.D. card from Columbia University yesterday. Another Texas FaceBook friend "Liked" the photo.

    I commented asking if it bothers anyone that the photo has been proven to be fraudulent on many levels already? Does it bother them that people still insist on passing these kind of lies around on the internet? I even posted several links dispelling the fraud. I reminded them of the, "Thou shalt not bear false witness," commandment thinking that would be something they would understand since they claim to be so Godly and all.

    I was quickly informed in no uncertain terms that they have the right to believe what they want to believe and that the fact check links I provided were probably all "democrate" <sic> sources.

    I just shook my head. There must be something in the water in Texas. I don't seem to remember this many retards living there during the 30 years I spent in the state.

    Let Texas go. The median I.Q. of America would jump 20 points. I am embarassed to be a Native Texan. I used to brag about it. Texas is a lost cause in my opinion. However, I do know a couple of people down there who still seem to have maintained their senses. One is a professor at SFA in Nacadoches and one is an Emergency Room physician in Marble Falls. But most, if not all, of the rest of my Texas acquaintences have gone bat **** crazy it seems.

    I would not miss Texas if they want to establish their independant state of altered reality. It would expedite progress within the United States proper. Lose the dead weight I say. Texas is holding America back.

    Let em go. They can become their own Country. That means all Fed money stops, all military bases close. You want to leave the Country of Texas and travel, you got a passport. Mexico's invading you, sorry can't help. Can't drive across the border you don't have an international driver license.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Well, its not up to you, but it sounds like you all want the same thing. Texas wants to go, you want them go. Problem solved. If they ever do, I will move there.

    The more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I'd require a visa before we let any of them into the United States, however.

    Re: White House denies Texas secession

    It would be one long ass drive from Florida to California having to drive around Texas.

    Gasoline prices would probably remain the same as oil is priced based on the global market. Texas has refineries and I suspect they would prosper in that arena. But their gains would be absorbed by the increase of other products required from other parts of the world and their associated costs.

    Texas would again become a de facto Mexican state as many of the W.A.S.P. middle classes eventually migrate back to America.

    But it would be nice to rid America of Texas altered reality influence. If that is at all possible. Sure, it's cute in a John Wayne sort of way but it's also detrimental to good policy and common sense decisions based on factual data. Emotional opinion and cultural belief has no place in mathmatical equation.

    If none of that made sense, remember, I'm FROM Texas. LOL!

    Texas won't continue. The people with actual power in Texas don't want this, and the ones that do are just ignorant ****s.

    Re: White House denies Texas secession

    The Texas population is 25,674,681. Approximately 125,000 signed it, but many were not even Texas residents. I don't see what is newsworthy of the White House denying succession based on a online petition with signatures from 0.004% of the population, less if you don't count the out of state signatures. I don't think this succession movement is nearly as big as some make it out to be.

    That would only make sense that they be treated like the foreign country they are.
