    Whiteboard for Texas.  Call it Petition This.

    Texas loses:  highway funding, Medicaid= all nursing homes, Medicare= many hospitals, education funding from pre-school to all college funding, fire equipment to all small communities,several large military bases, FEMA, NASA and related businesses, FAA and all related flight services, farm subsidies, oil subsidies, nat'l gas subsidies, national fire fighting services, disaster aid during droughts, thee National Guard, border protection, federal funding for infrastructure, transportation subsidies for mass transit, the trains that carry goods to markets, women's health and children's health clinics, food stamps, connections to the power grid, pollution monitoring on water sources, FDA, and those are just the obvious losses.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
