You jumped straight to comments and missed that I included that clip in the bottom of the story. But I agree, they're both really good.

Good for you DB. Have posted some of your stuff on FB and sent that most important video out to my email contacts for which I was subsequently shut out of my account and accused of being a spammer. You must be on to something here.

Tex. Are you located in Texas.

.....@ Skinflint, I was born in Houston Texas..Earnst Tubb told me one night on his Eagle Bus that if it says I was born in Texas, use it proudly in your stage name. ( It Dose)

But mom got home sick and we were back in Sconsin by the time I was 2yr. old Had to shut my show down from a tick bite "Lyme" and soled the haus and moved down by Branson Mo. When Texas splits from the Fed Goverment we will move back to Texas.

Texas is the only state thats not a state. We are a Rebublic, and made a deal with the goverment to go along with them, but neaver push us around or we will go back to a Republic. Texas can do just fine without EVER leaving the "Territory" ( Ann helped me with that one Cheyane ! )......

Sorry DB, I dident have a link. E-mail sent to me from a Fellow Texan.........

The Country of Texas

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We'll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven't had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't Mess With Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don't know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need, and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University
of Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT ( University of North
Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn't restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it's a Right to Work State and; therefore, it's every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don't like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and twenty- three of the 100 largest cities in the United States, are located inTexas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas .

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don't need to. You see, nothing rusts in Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV.The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!
Texas is the only state that flyies our state flag the same height as the American Flag.......all others are 4' below Ol Glory.......Tex !

In response to The People of Texas letter, Do you really want to piss of all Conservatives, Republicans & members of the Tea Party in the other 49 states with all that Bloviating?

Well Sir, im not rubbing it in anyones face. But I am statting a real fact. It is what it is. The founders of Texas must have seen ahead as did the founders of United States of America, and goverment out of control...

Yes I would move back to Texas when King Empor Obama of the World makes it nesseary to do so. Would I want all my DB Family to move thAre with me, "You Betch-Ya"........

If Obama gets in for 4more years, America as we know it will ceast to exist. Im not sure Romney will be much better, but we got to shut down his "Death Panels"........Will I feel sorry for the rest, dam right. But this is a right I have and would use to protect my family......

P.S. If you hate me for it, I forgive you in advance.....

Keep it going Texas Dar, I lived there and love that State. They post a gun with a red circle and slash if you CAN'T carry in that building.

Your fans are going to be keeping you busy DB, I post you in the strangest places.

Romney (whom I am in the tank for) is losing 2 Billion dollars from his public service. Governor, Olympics, running for President at no salary.

Dar, I spent the last couple of days (in my spare time) cleaning off storm drains because of what you did....

Love the pix of you in the aero-plane.

Hope you did well during the storm.

If you liked the Chevy Volt, you are going to love the PelosiGTxi SS/RT and the 2011 Obummer.

Since everybody outside of Washington already seems to understand that government-run car companies are doomed to fail, I will spare you a dull treatise on why the GM bailout is a bad idea. Instead, how about an advance look at GM's 2012 top-selling car... The video is funny, but the joke may be on us. The PelosiGTxi SS/RT http://wp.me/przCm-2e

Clever creation on someone's part, but since we're on the topic of government-created cars, this video is the best and funniest I've ever seen. The 2011 Obummer http://wp.me/przCm-1cJ

Sometimes it's no fun to be an economist. Or, to be more specific, it's rather frustrating to understand Bastiat's insight about the "seen" and the "unseen" and to always be asking "at what cost?" and "to what effect?" when politicians make inane statements. The GM bailout is a good example. Politicians want us to believe http://wp.me/przCm-4Yj
