    Being in Dallas, TX, with our state being 1/12, or 8% of the U.S. population (roughtly 25 million out of 305+ million), I am accustomed to what we here call "Texas-bashing".  I am also used to seeing expressions of disdain for AZ, ready to write the entire state off due to its nutcases.  Thse of us here get it, and we are working to change things.  Help, or frankly shut up and get out of the way and we'll do it ourselves, but sniping and finger-pointing is counter-productive.

    May we pause a moment to ask, "How is this constructive?"  Would you truly write off entire states, and continue to pretend we have a single country?  That the representatives of said states, in attendance in Congress, deserve disdain and being ignored, and that somehow we will govern ourselves in this country with that kind aof approach?  This is no better than those who would "write off" Massachusetts or New York, and presume to govern with no input from their citizens and that somehow this works.

    Please just stop, all of you.  It's really tiring.  May we not be constructive?

    Peace.
