Texas We Love It
Janis Joplin came from Beaumont, Texas. She was an early bloomer and the U Texas campus newspaper wrote about her, "She goes barefooted when she feels like it, wears Levi's to class because they're more comfortable, and carries her Autoharp with her everywhere she goes so that in case she gets the urge to break into song it will be handy. Her name is Janis Joplin."
The singer didn't finish school and headed out to San Francisco to become an icon of rock.
About 116,000 Texans are feeling the same after the re-election of President Barack Obama. They have signed a petition for secession from the Union to show their unhappiness with the present state of the USA. Their leader Larry Scott Kilgore has stated on his website, "Secession! All other issues can be dealt with later.”
Mainstream media has been enthralled by the talk of leaving the States, even though the signatories amount to .006% of the voting populace of the Lone Star State.
By law any petition over 25,000 signatures require a response from the White House.
Disgruntled voters in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, Louisiana and Oklahoma have joined the trickle of madmen seeking independence from the mightiest nation on Earth.
The last secession didn't work out so good for the South.
The 20th Maine stopped General Hood's Texan dead in their tracks at Gettysburg.
The Texas petition reads:
Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it's citizens' standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.
I only have a few words for these 'cess' mad rebels.
Remember the 20th Maine and secede in your mind.
No one will notice that you're gone.
Unlike Janis Joplin.
She still rocks.
