Blogging: Day Two, Sickness, Secession and Stuff

First off, thank you to the Core Loonies (wirecutter, MissK, angrymike, da_truth, doubletroubletwo), for welcoming me and adding me to your blog rolls. Seriously, I'm touched, and frightened. I woke up this morning, opened email and had my first "OH SHIT" moment of blogging. This is real, I really did this, and now I have to follow through. May I reiterate. OH SHIT.

I owe you deep, heartfelt, thought-provoking commentary; and I promise I have several rants cued and ready to spin. (old dj back when vinyl was king) But today I have a dr's appointment to find out why I've been sick as a dog for 5 days and have lost 14 pounds. Don't let those skinny bitches fool you, supermodels have the secret to rapid weight loss and it ain't pretty. I guess I can also blame my insane decision to join the world of blogging on dehydration delerium.  Anyhoo...

A teaser for what's to come: A Texan's View of Secession. Heh heh heh. Now don't go getting your panties in a bunch and start calling me "seditious" and "treasonous". As a NATIVE TEXAN, a TEXAN by birth, choice and the Grace of God, AMEN, and a true hyphenated American (Texan-American), I can tell you that it is born in us. We are conceived with the Secession gene and it grows stronger as we grow older. We long for the day when we hear, "Welcome to the Republic of Texas, passport please." But most of us know the difference between Possibility and Probability. And as long as things don't get worse, the Possibility of Texas seceding from the Union isn't Probable. But it's still fun to dream.

Get well sug. The more voices we have in the hyperverse the better chance we have of getting our message across. And if Texas ever secedes I'm hauling ass south.

Cool blog. Now it's added to my list.

I'm good with secession. It's a fracking joke, since the president has to approve it.

Approve this, Barry. Asshole.

Okay, first off, I've had an inner ear infection for the last week, major motion sickness. NOT a stomach virus from hell. But the result's the same. My skinny jeans fit. Yea me!

Mark12A, thank you! Have been a Secessionist since November 15, 1966. :-)

Wild Cookery! (by the way, love the enthusiasm!)
That is going to be part of my discussion. It's not just those kooky Texans, it's widespread with a few surprise states mixed in.

Glad you got your own place. I've followed your comments from Pissed and WC's blogs. You pointed me at a Texas secession site a few days ago. As a fellow Native Texan I am right there with you. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to more great posts in the future!!

Asking a committed marxist permission to leave the collective is no different than asking a crocodile not to eat you. Texas can withdraw itself from the union painlessly (has its own energy grid, its own resources, and joined by a treaty they can withdraw from) but the other states will not be so lucky. It is 1860 all over again.

I can't tell you how many people from other states have begged "take us with you", like we can incorporate Indiana into the Republic of Texas. Maybe with a few more states. But yeah, then it turns into the Confederacy and that didn't work out too well for Texas. So we'd rather go solo this time. The only problem is that whole "peaceful withdrawal" bullshit. You think Obama would let Texas go anywhere peacefully? Yeah, he hast our guts, but still...
