Hey azzwipe,

Enjoy Boeing's job cuts.

You maroons in WA state rejected a RINO for a congressman who cost the state 1 million bucks when he left the House early, in the governor election.

Only I can use Disco Inferno, Texas ain't gonna burn, that would be California, since it rains all the time up there you will rot.

Oh, no Social Security or Medicare either. I feel sorry for
all those old people. Nothing to live on, no medical care.
Texas, the third-world nation.
When the USSR fell in 1991, Ukraine inherited 1,400 nukes, they had to be extorted and bribed to give them up.

What happens with a successor state is that all of the federation's assets become the property of the successor state.

Now Texas has the economic and petroleum ball in its court, that means it keeps the B-1s, and presuming other states in the South leave with them, some B-52s as well.

That means nuclear weapons.

And Texas is a donor state.

If you want to argue this, actually read up on the USSR collapse, Russia did not take all of the sucessor state's assets, and not every ex-USSR state is a dump.

The Congress didn't change in 2009. They simply punted on the economy by spending.

Republic of Texas

Texas consolidated its status as an independent republic and received official recognition from Britain, France, and the U.S., which all advised Mexico not to try to reconquer the new nation. Most Texans wanted to join the U.S. but annexation of Texas was contentious in the U.S. Congress, where Whigs were largely opposed. In 1845 Texas agreed to the offer of annexation by the U.S. Congress. Texas became the 28th state on December 29, 1845.

Keep that in mind.
Why?

Keep in mind that Obama2012 out-polled Bush2004 by 244,395 votes.

Gore2000 out-polled Bush2000 by 500,000 votes.

The "left" has no need to denigrate your people.

Your people do that to themselves.

Good for them. Keep it up!

2016 will be a repeat of 2012, only a different Democrat.

Well, when all those poor folk in Mississippi, Louisiana
and Alabama are cut off from their Social Security, their Medicare, their Medicaid, their federal food stamp program and all other income from the federal government, they are going to get
hungry and restless.

Not to worry though, Texas is a fairly wealthy state and
will no doubt be glad to feed them all.

Care packages from Mexico? Possibly.

There are B-52s at Barksdale AFB in LA, as in nuclear weapons.
And I'm sure the federal government would just let them go.... NOT! All this talk of recession is just that, talk. It reminds me of a three year old who says she'll hold her breath if she doesn't get her way. A tantrum, because the man you wanted to preside wasn't up to the task.

Give concessions after bankruptcy, then get threatened with further cuts, go on strike, knowing fully that your jobs will be gone whether you agree to them or not.

Hi. We are looking at a beautiful house on Wildwood. Wondering what the political demographics of the Minerva Park area are. Does anyone know rough percentages of dems vs repubs? Thanks in advance.
