    argy.bargy2: Inclination isn’t the issue, but at least at the time of the original drawing, a lot more was expected of Canadian kids. After moving back to Texas, my daughter coasted her senior year in high school compared to her junior year in Canada. I can’t speak to current conditions, but from “Joe Who” to Harper, the country has sure gone downhill.

    As for then and now, only two states were independent nations, recognized as such by other nations. If again independent, Texas would become a military dictatorship and Hawaii would have to depend on tourism and a foreign naval base for its economy. Neither would help the residents.

    I would be afraid to hit undo until I was sure of how much it would undo.

    JanCinLV: Blame Lynn. Nothing has been revealed that she hasn’t mentioned on several occasions in her notes. And don’t depend on sarcasm – too many take it literally.

    cubefarmer: It is probably a cat’s way to get rid of fleas.

    daDoctah: Yeah, drought has that effect on fresh water, but rising salt water will compensate for it.

    mikefive: Sure, it is far better that small and/or uneducated states run roughshod over the majority. Must not let the insiders who know where the corruption lies and the bodies are buried have any say in rooting them out.

    smartgrr : It won’t help. Because of massive purchasing power and cowardly publishers, Texas choses for the nation.

    TripleAxel: The only inaccuracy is the “for Texas” on the book cover; it is for everyone. Only a boycott of these books by other states will cure the problem. There must be a small publisher somewhere capable of producing accurate textbooks. Patronize them and they will become great publishers and the flat-earth Texas SBOE will wither so fast that even Texans will be educated.

    Nun’Ya Bidness: Running and hiking can be done barefoot, as was demonstrated at the Rome Olympics marathon. I mentioned this earlier, but the censor got to it before I came back for my final read-through.

    StoicLion: What gives you the right to deny them the right to advocate? You sure are advocating your position, not on its merits, but on the denial of the rights of others.
