Consider Texas to be America’s Saudi Arabia: Religious nuts living in a largely barren land whom we continue to appease for their oil.

11. Pretty darn good BBQ. But, I’d survive.

The above post was a joke, obviously. Sincerely, I’d like to see a more rational overall population in Texas, and certainly I don’t think ALL Texans are religious nuts.

No, not all, but enough. Too many, even.

Engineers are capable of picking up and moving entire buildings. I wish they could figure out a way to do that with Austin.

You sound mighty angry about something. I do not understand your anger.

I’d also appreciate it if you kept the racist remarks to a minimum. Thanks.

Texas belt buckles aren’t actually a thing anymore, mostly because the types of Texans who would wear them in the first place now have enormous, pendulous guts that would just obscure them anyway, thus rendering the bling (“blang” in Texan) irrelevant.

“…Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system,” Smitherman said.

Ha ha ha, right, water rights on the Ogallala Aquifer would be easily divided and decided upon if it straddled international borders. There totally wouldn’t be any animosity with the U.S. through Oklahoma, New Mexico, and even Kansas if the nation of Texas rampantly depleted it.

Can’t let Texas become its own Nation, mostly because it would be the first step in getting drunken Tubing into the Olympics.
However, it might actually get me to watch the Olympics again.

How about a culture that idolizes high school football players at the expense of them actually getting an education? But, when you need your car detailed, you can always count on a former star to do it while they reminisce about the glory days..

If they actually did Secede, how long until Mexico annexed them?

I’d kick in $5 to see the look on that moron Rick Perry’s face a week or two after they Seceded.

… Right as it occurs to them that since they’re a red state they mooch a ton of money from the federal government (money that’s not there anymore).

… Just in time to get a notification that the Mexican State of Tejas will be happily welcomed back into the United Mexican States…

… and they’re sending the army to help the transition.

I’d appreciate it if you learned what a sarc tag is. Thanks.

Sorry but that is not factual…

Actually Texas is practically the only Southern state that pays more in taxes to the Feds than they receive back in Federal spending (and that includes federal pensions, federal contract spending, Social Security, Medicare/caid, “food stamps,” W.I.C., section 8 housing assistance, everything really).

Texas pays more into the Federal Government than it receives back in total benefits just like many of the North-Eastern states. It is actually pretty remarkable when you consider the numerous military bases and federal defense contractors located in Texas. Every penny the Fed spends on those is counted in the typical and overly simplistic “which states take more than they pay” chart that includes all five sectors of Federal spending (retirement pension payments, contract payments, social program spending, etc.) counted as if they were all the same thing.

Losing Texas would be a major loss to this country, and not solely because they are one of the few states that still help to decrease the federal deficit.

They have multiple major military bases, a large portion of the countries oil refinery and refined oil products shipping capacity, a significant portion of the nations fertilizer production facilities, and many essential production facilities for defense contractors.

Do some research before you glibly decide to just hand them back to Mexico, while I’m sure Mexico would really love to have them back, the entire country would be hurt without them.

Better to continue to work on education and recruitment there rather than encouraging them to secede, Texas is getting closer to turning purple every day now (at least outside of the rural counties).
