Gov Perry sets thangs straight

Hey, y'all might have missed this, but Texas declared its sovereignty yesterday. Maybe you don't know what that means. I, with sovereignty as a Texan, will clarify.

Official Press Conference Translation:

"Now, here's the deal, Mr Obama. Way we see it, your power comes about yea high (gestures toward knees) and you have been trying to work more up here in this region here (makes cutthroat gesture). 

I know you're new town, and you're a real nice kid. That bein said, I'mon have to slow you down here a little bit. 

See this region here on this map? (pointing to Texas) This here is Texas. We don't take kindly to people thievin. Not kindly a'tall. 

So here's what we're gonna do for you. I got this little book here, called the Constitution. I don't think you've read it, but you'd best give it a good look. 

Now, this here Constitution says you can do this, and this, and this. It also says you cain't be doin all this other... bizness. And if you do, there's a pretty big state willing to whup your... legislation. 

I ain't threatening y'all, understand. Just explainin.

So here's what we're offering you. You do your job, as defined by this here book, and we'll all get along jist fine. Jist fine. 

On the other hand, you keep stickin them long Yankee fingers in Texas' pocket, you're likely to lose a couple. Not threatenin, just clearin some stuff up. We was all new in town, once."


Also, today is Tax Day. Find a tea party, go to it, take pictures, and send them to me. Read all about it.
