Perhaps you should read the constitution more closely, Jimmy, especially the first amendment.  You know the Bill of Rights doesn't start with the second amendment which you seem to hold so dear.  Kind of ridiculous question for someone who holds their 2nd amendment in such high esteem.  Or do only believe that those with views similar to yours should have rights?

Jeeze. I got to quit feeing these trolls.

"Of course we should dedicate significant resources and effort to stopping terrorism. But consider some hard facts. In 2001, the year when America suffered an unprecedented terrorist attack -- by far the biggest in its history -- roughly 3,000 people died from terrorism in the U.S.

Let's put that in context. That same year in the United States:

71,372 died of diabetes.
29,573 were killed by guns.
13,290 were killed in drunk driving accidents."

Yeah, I guess I could move away pretty easily now. There are too many non-Texans like JimmyC down here now, anyway, screwing up the character of the place...but there are idiots everywhere - it only seems like there are more here 'cause of the governor and his predecessor.

Don't take it too personally Gabby.  We know not all Texans are bizarre.  It's just the 95% that give the rest of you a bad name. :(

Well, I kind of live up in the more civilized side of Tejas.....home of indoor plumbing and restaurants without drive-throughs.

The further southeast you go, you start encountering people who think the movie 'Deliverance' not as fiction but more like a documentary.
