You dumazz yankee, we don't have to ask you northerners to come here. You will come, no matter what. The beauty is, we don't cater to your leftist asses. You either fit in or, you get out. We don't care.
Are you seriously asking where are our guys from the Alamo? I guess they're as dead as your grandma. We all die, don't we? You dumazz.
So let me get this straight, you are saying get over the Alamo and move on, right? Yet, you can't progress enough to let who ever marry who ever? "Truth is might", is Truth is full of crap. So it's got to be your way and only your way, good luck with that.

"Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, 10 of the original 12 Hebrew tribes, which, under the leadership of Joshua, took possession of Canaan, the Promised Land, after the death of Moses. They were named Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon, and Zebulun—all sons or grandsons of Jacob. In 930 bc the 10 tribes formed the independent Kingdom of Israel in the north and the 2 other tribes, Judah and Benjamin, set up the Kingdom of Judah in the south. Following the conquest of the northern kingdom by the Assyrians in 721 bc, the 10 tribes were gradually assimilated by other peoples and thus disappeared from history. Nevertheless, a belief persisted that one day the Ten Lost Tribes would be found. Eldad ha-Dani, for instance, a 9th-century Jewish traveler, reported locating the tribes “beyond the rivers of Abyssinia” on the far side of an impassable river called Sambation, a roaring torrent of stones that becomes subdued only on the sabbath, when Jews are not permitted to travel. Manasseh ben Israel (1604–57) used the legend of the lost tribes in pleading successfully for admission of Jews into England during Oliver Cromwell’s regime. Peoples who at various times were said to be descendants of the lost tribes include the Nestorians, the Mormons, the Afghans, the Falashas of Ethiopia, the American Indians, and the Japanese. Among the numerous immigrants to the State of Israel since its establishment in 1948 were a few who likewise claimed to be remnants of the Ten Lost Tribes. The descendants of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin have survived as Jews because they were allowed to return to their homeland after the Babylonian Exile of 586 bc."

<quoted text> Maybe Florida can get some next. Most people would prefer a desert area for that kind of waste clean up. Nevada has some waste disposal I think. Workers in Texas are not uneducated. The Texas Medical Center, largest in the world, is full to the brim with educated workers. NASA also employes educated workers. The Trinity River is not in bad shape, I've eaten the catfish there for years. How would you propose this waste be disposed of? Maybe Capt.Kirk could beam it up?
We had Ten Amendments to vote on and that one on hazardous waste never made it to the table. That’s not to say Florida is better off than Texas after all we have a Republican Ricky to. What a mess he is making. Hell bent on that inequality thingy.
No doubt Texas has talent and education. That’s not what I’m concerned with as much.. It’s the degrees of inequality policies that is diminishing the opportunities for all of its citizens…. Less so for their elitist. This austerity ideology has and will always prove disastrous.
Here in Fl.. We have held most of the line against our Ricky going nuts. Those Ten Amendments were not favorably accepted by our citizens. Since then he has been pretty quite. Now he reluctantly agrees with Obamacare. LOL Him in a state famous for its abundance of retiree’s. AND him a exCEO founder of a medical insurance company that has been fined over a billion on Medicare fraud…. AND expending, by republicans for his election was over $73 Million vs. his opponent {Sink} 5.9 Million. Little wonder we retain the infamous title of the #1 most politically corrupt state in the nation. Where in as Texas has only the infamous title of being #1 in drop outs. LOL how long before with this increasing ignorance in Texas before they scam away our infamous title.
Hazardous Waste;
Its one thing to dispose of it. Its another , will their be an infrastructure that can contain it for hundreds of years or thousands. I fear for the Health of them thar little Texans yet to come. Perhaps by then Kirk will arrive… NASA employees here to but is that private Space X or X Space corporation in Texas as well. They are the fore runners to orbital supply transportation services. Now that’s something to hang a Ten Gallon Tin Hat on.. Ha, ha,

Until Utopia arrives, inequality will always be with us. The poster you just referred to is a stalker, well known on many threads. This person is vicious and likely deranged, will take many positions using many Topix names. Usually goes far left or far right. Far right persona users maniacal ethnic slurs. Far left persona calls conservatives vile names. The idiot even responds to"it's"own posts using"it's" many different Topix names. Sometimes the"poster"makse seemingly incoherent statements.

I feel we are reaching a common ground. How do we stop the racial issue, from being a deciding factor? We have to work together, while preerving our genetic integrity.
That's the ticket - unity without blending.
By just being honest with people. Results are the only thing that matter in this world. The results from 4 1/2 years of the Obama regime have been abysmal at best. Obama may have been the champion of black people at the beginning but now he is an embarrassment to many of them. All of us are
getting the shaft by the global elite, regardless of race and Obama was
chosen deliberately to keep up the "divide and conquer" strategy.

In fact, we have been getting shafted long before Obama by our wonderful corporate led government that lies to us at every turn. Examples: Gulf
War I vets were never told the truth of where their illnesses came from.
The government doesn't want to talk about depleted uranium used in munitions
and its effects.

On a personal note: I also didn't know that the drinking water at Camp Lejeune NC. was contaminated by benzine and other chemicals until recently. I was stationed there for a short time in the early 1970's.

But here is the biggest problem. Unless everyone in this country can see through the "conquer and divide" strategy being promoted by race, religion and political party affiliation, we are ALL screwed. We are all nothing
more than human cattle to the global elite and their puppets that run our
wonderful government.

Senator Marco Rubio {R} of Fl. Is not welcomed by the {R’s}“Kick the can down the road gang”. Marco’s immigration bill that passed the Nations House of Representatives this past June, with a bipartisan vote of 68 to 32, is not acceptable to Fl. state house {R’s}.
Marco’s bill contends that and I quote “ We have 11 million people living in this country illegally, in de facto amnesty”“This is the way things are NOW, this is the status quo. And it is a terrible mess, hurting our country terribly. And unless we do SOMETHING it, this administration is never going to fix it.” This bill Marco further argues “ Mandates the most ambitious border and interior security measure in our nations history!”
The Bill’s $ 40 Billion for security up grade to our nations borders and the 13 years to scrutinize the illegal immigrants applications is not enough? Easy to see where the Traditionalist {R’s} are going with that. Looking for their can..
{R’s} claim their dissatisfaction with how the 1986 immigration bill did not secure the borders. Hmm was it not the {R’s} that voted down the funds for that upgrade to border security. Just as they refused Obama request for funds to beef up our embassies security after the Libyan issue.“IF” they were so concerned with beefing up our national borders to immigrants they sure had the opportunity from 2000 to 2008 and failed to do so. Kicking the can down the road is their best traditionalist policies on that immigration issue.
State House of FL.{R} Once Again Want The Opportunity To Exercise Their Traditionalist Pass Time To “Kick The Can Down The Road”
Rep. Tom Rooney, Radel, Dennis Ross and Bill Possey the leadership of the “Kick The Can Down The Road Gang, have made their Traditionalist desires known. Senator John Boehner of Ohio {R} is cheering them on. Emulating their dysfunctional leadership in administrating our polices to Florida and to our nation….. 2014 coming up voters. You choose…
