Can We Trade In Texas Yet?

You know, it’s just not working out. Sure sure, Austin’s got some great culture but… given that a county in Texas, albeit a small one, is allowing teachers to carry concealed firearms in the classroom, I think we’re about through.

And there was that whole “crappy President who screwed up the country” thing too, of course.

But seriously – this quote is scary:

“When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that’s when all of these shootings started,” [school superintendent David Thweatt] wrote on the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s web site.

Yeah, might as well give everyone guns so we can have shoot-outs. GREAT IDEA.

Oh, I’d be delighted to secede from the USA (if for no other reason than that I wouldn’t have to pay federal income taxes and social security) but the last time we tried you yanks prevented from forming our own republic. And so we are sentenced to remain part of America.

Maybe the captcha will work this time, 99.44% of the time I try to comment on this site it says I entered incorrect string and my comment is lost. Please make it easier, amigos ..

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
