Texas Secession? The stars at night are big and bright....
From McClatchy we read this morning, "Texas' Perry raises secession issue at 'tea party' protest."
Though I have moved back to New England, where I grew up as a kid/teen, I lived in TX for over 20 years and remember those bumper stickers back in the 80s, "Texas Secede" and "Texas Native." This secession idea has been kicked around for years. It's that whoop and holler "Don't Mess with my white, anti-hispanic, anti-gay Texas" mentality, and with the changing demographics, that dog don't hunt. Perry's a fucking opportunist anyway. It was all bluster. When pressed with questions about his statement, he told reporters that Texas probably wouldn't secede anyway.
