    Fortunately I live in a house made out of stones. It's both durable and provides plenty of ammo.

    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

    Well, the Texas petition is over one hundred thousand thousand signatures now and still no response from the "Administration." While not all of the signatures may be "authentic." While the claims made in the petition may not hold up under examination. And even while the nature of the petition may not fit the site creators' intent. I feel the "administration" should respond. They opened this can of worms, so to speak.

    Does anyone know what the turnaround time is supposed to be?

    Even though the supreme court may have ruled secession unconstitutional in Texas vs White. I don't see how it would be unconstitutional to at least have a nonbinding plebiscite in the state. The federal government does not have to hold the plebiscite either. They can hand it off to the state government and tell them they can hold it if they want too. That way the wackos can have their day and the federal government doesn't have to foot the bill. Maybe respond like this?
    While the Supreme Court of the United States determined that secession was unconstitutional in 1869. Our great nation was founded because the government was not representing the will of its people. It would be a betrayal of that principle if we became guilty of the same. In order to form a more perfect union, does not mean it is a perfect union. It is a goal that we will forever strive for. Everyone may not agree on what's best for this country. Yet finding common ground, no matter how different our personal beliefs might be, is what makes this country great. Therefore, if some believe that they should not remain part of this union, let their voice be heard. If their state government so chooses, let them hold a referendum and see what the will of the people may be.
    What I find saddest though is that everyone swamps the secession petitions, while the one wanting to add a state is still thirteen thousand short.

Same for taxes, those receiving "assistance" don't pay taxes on assisted goods like food, who does? Middle class working America right? Kinda Ironic, IMO which states are the Blue (for the working class) states and which ones are Red (for the top 2%); talk about hypocrisy.
    Texas has lots of Toll Roads. Off the top of my head, I can think of 5 major highways that are toll roads in Texas, and I feel reasonably certain there are more.

    I drive through 1 toll booth on the way to work every day and avoid the toll road on the way home, and it costs me $1.50/day, so that's about $33/month I pay in tolls in Houston, and I'm lucky enough to only have to go through one booth.

    When I lived in the Bay Area in California, by contrast, the only tolls I can recall are the ones you pay to cross the bridges over the bay.
