Via Tengrain, we have news of the next upcoming Texas secession vote... it seems like we have to hear this song and dance routine every three or four years, and the Texas GOPers are still holding out on us. The timing of this current vote to secede is a bit, to put it mildly, awkward, as Houston is in the midst of a flooding disaster that has largely shut down the city and had left over 100,000 houses without electricity. Texas is going to need federal aid... let's see who votes 'yes' on secession when there's a need for federal largesse.
It's annoying how often we have to hear from the Confederate Nostalgia Wing of the Texas state house, maybe the real solution would be to deport all of these assholes to a seastead where they can form their own libertarian John Galt paradise. I feel sorry for the good people of Tejas who have to put up with this nonsense... go out and vote, please, and get rid of the Gohmerts and Cruzes. In the meantime, stay safe, high, and dry. If things get really bad, the rest of the U.S. will be there with the aid, despite the wishes of your elected officials.
