In 1950, that is what they said about space-travel and going to the moon.      😉.

Technology/science and social attitudes are not the same but that was a nice try.

If I wanted to become a citizen of Texas, I could do so without a single problem. All I'd have to do is to move there, get a driver's license and register to vote. You know this is true. I am not mad at all, I am just telling this fool that Texas will never secede. And that is a fact.

Not true.

 

If you attempt to become a citizen of Texas, you are going to have one very big, very major problem, and that will be the citizens of Texas - virtually all of them - who don't want the likes of you residing here.

In 1950, they said we would all have our own autogyros.

In 1950, they said we would all have nuclear power that would be so cheap, they would not even bother with metering usage.

In 2000, they said that Dick Cheney would follow Juniorbush into the Whitehouse.

I don't think that space travel as most people envisioned it has yet occurred. To prove this, go to Virago and book a two week vacation to the moon.

I guess Texas can try to secede and achieve success (whatever that is supposed to mean) but probability/reality are such a bit__. I would estimate the probably at 1 in 10^15 which places it out of the realm of realistic probability for most.

Seceding from the US is not science.  Texas already tried to secede once. It also failed miserably to maintain itself as an independent country.

True.

I think it was an independent nation in 1837.  I could be wrong on that.

Well, the country is certainly more split than it has ever been before in the few decades I've been around. 

 

That being said, I imagine the country was more split during the civil rights/Vietnam era. And no civil war occurred there.

 

Anyone from that time period care to enlighten me?

The Republic of Texas existed from 1837 to 1845, and begged to be admitted to the USA because it was utterly bankrupt. You  are a poor excuse for a Texan if you don't know that.

Americans were invited to settle in Texas by the Mexican government in the 1820's.  They had to agree to become Roman Catholics and swear not to practice slavery to qualify for free land. Most did not keep their word.  Then Mexico was taken over by a dictator Santa Anna. The history of Texas is on the internet, there is no excuse for ignorance. In 1861, Texas seceded from the USA again over slavery and joined the corrupt and incompetently run Confederacy.

The history of the Civil War is available on the Internet, as is the history of the War in Vietnam. The Ken Burns documentaries on both are excellent.

The folks who voted for the LOSER, a/k/a Beto the Queerboy, do, in fact, beg.

 

They beg for money.

 

They beg for food.

 

They beg for someone to give them an Obama phone.

 

They beg for a place to live.

 

Yep.

 

THEY ARE, INDEED, BEGGARS!

Hey X,

If your 12yr old son doesn't win the 1st game of the baseball season, do you tell him to him to go home, get drunk, and forget about baseball?

No !!  You teach him to hang in there, try harder, practice more.

We don't want to live on the Democrat Plantation.  The negroes do.  But we do not.  We are cut......from a different cloth.

Will you respect our wishes?        

Tenacity…….is a virtue.                 🙂.

You have yet to offer a single word of criticism. I am finding it quite amusing that you think that I care enough to be obsessed with Trump. When I go home, what do I do? Make dinner, play with the kids, fix the dryer, have a beer, grocery shopping... any mention of Trump or politics in there? Don't worry, I dont expect a straight, honest answer. Its not your style.

No one is seceding. That is idiotic.

so yer choosing tyranny.....the federal government is breaking its contract with the people.....

GOVERNMENTS GAIN THEIR JUST POWER FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED...

we are tired of having our rights and liberties stolen from us by this sack of sh it congress, executive and the judiciary...the words infringed and abridged both have definitions....and the federal government is complicit in doing both to our liberties....here read this and see how far apart from the thirteen colonies we are today...not that far if you are honest with yerself.

 

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Leftards already want to rewrite the constitution so they can vote themselves more of YOUR earnings but not from the rich who really deserve it. Do you know I was arrested for assaulting a cop? I'm a big baby like Rand Paul. I hate Jesus because he loves the poor and will condemn the rich to hell. Jesus is a socialist and I hate him!!

And still the population of Russia is declining. Russia sucks. Maybe living there is why you are such a whiny pussy?

 

The United States Census Bureau estimates that Russia's population will decline from the current 143 million to a mere 111 million by 2050, a loss of more than 30 million people and a decrease of more than 20%.  All the smart Russians are leaving losers like you are there working on a troll farm.

"The Seven Deadly Sins of Donald Trump"


One cannot call himself a Christian and support Donald Trump. Donald Trump is 
a living embodiment of the "Seven Deadly Sins":



LUST: Has had at least one affair and multiple wives.

GLUTTONY: He's not exactly in the best physical shape and he frequently brags 
about all the money he supposedly has. 

GREED: Again, he claims to be worth billions.

ENVY: A small, petty person who's not only clearly jealous by how respected 
President Obama was (and still is), but that his opponent in the 2016 election,
Hillary Clinton, received 3 million more votes than he did. 

WRATH: Look no further than former FBI director James Comey who was apparently 
fired for not giving into Trump's attempts to obstruct justice. 

PRIDE: A man who wants to take credit for everything positive, even if he had 
nothing to do with it, while never, ever taking the blame for any of his failures. 

SLOTH: Has played an obscene amount of golf, while spending many of his weekends 
at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
