    That is why raising taxes should be a federal activity, not a state activity.

    It’s called a balanced budget; there’s nothing left to cut, so there’s only one thing left to do.

    - Good riddance, let’s see how long they put up with the filthy air and water.

    ReFlex-76, don’t judge all of Texas by the Houston area. Just as you can’t judge all of California by the L.A. area.

    I am convinced that a lot of the sorry state the U.S. is in (and has been for decades in terms of education, health care, environment etc.) is this “race to the bottom” mentality between the states. The U.S. is a republic? Not sure anymore. It “feels” more like that “Group of independent states” that was the successor to the Soviet Union…

    As soon as Texas is on-their-own then attacked by(?) they will quickly sue to return as a member of the United States… of Mexico and things will have come full circle. “Recuerden el Alamo”.

    You really should visit Texas sometime. It’s not at all like the descriptions you’re reading on the Daily KOokS.

    If they want to leave America and go to a foreign country that is their business.

    “Whatshername said of California that there is no There, there.”


    Technically, Gertrude Stein (thatshername) was specifically speaking about Oakland, her hometown. Just sayin’.

    It’s the best “divide and conquer” strategy the radical rich (and the GOP) have come up with yet. Most middle class Americans don’t realize that “state’s rights” is a code phrase for: lousy jobs, bad roads, terrible schools, and below average medical care.

    States rights simply means that states make decisions instead of the government. Basically, Massachusetts can institute a Healthcare plan if they want to, and Texas could care less. Are the liberals suddenly afraid the majority of the states no longer agree with them? Can the Democrats overcome political apathy just long enough to get Obama re-elected?

    Right to work allows employees to leave a union if they wish to. Some conservatives do want to abolish unions, but ultimately, freedom to leave or join a union is much better than either being forced into or out of a union.

    Gertrude Stein. And she said it about Oakland, where she grew up.

    If she had been a baseball fan, her most famous quote might have been different.
