  •  Oh, and I didn't say anything about the South, (0+ / 0-)

    flyover country or redneckistan. So don't say that I bashed them also.

    And finally, I'm not laughing at TX - trust me, this is not funny stuff.

    •  I live here. I hear the Texas bashing every day. (0+ / 0-)

      Ted Cruz does not represent me.
      John Cornyn does not represent me.
      Rick Perry does not represent me.
      Randy Neugebauer and Pete Sessions do not represent me.

      They represent powerful moneyed interests dedicated, like Rupert Murdoch, to dividing Texans for their further profit.

      Your playing along with that is no help, and while I'm pretty sure that if Texas were to secede all by ourselves we'd do better than the Old South because we do control some oil and have some other energy infrastructure and potential exports, that would destroy my home state and my nation, and as a Dem I find the notion reprehensible.

      Your smug self-assurance to the contrary.

      •  Sorry to burst your bubble, but..... (0+ / 0-)

        Cruz and Cornyn DO represent you. They are the two U.S. Senators from Texas. They ARE your only two U.S. Senators. And Perry IS your Govenor.

        And I agree with you that TX could do OK on its own, economically speaking. So if that's what your fellow Texans want, so be it.

        As for me, I vote Dem wherever I'm at, and right now I'm in AZ. My Dem vote gets wasted each election, but I vote...as I'm sure you do. And as was pointed out earlier, AZ is NOT clamoring for secession. And I am the first one to point out how f'ed our repubs are here in AZ. Hell, look at OUR Govenor and U.S. Senators - they are as f'ed up as almost anyone, altho I'll give you Cruz.

          aren't listening. Like I said before: FU and your smug self-assurance.
