Next time I get down on you slack-jawed yokels in Texas, which could be any time, I don't want to hear any flack. No excuses. You can take my critique in the gut and live with it OR you can tell me to stuff it. But the latter is only an option if you get off your bovine Texas asses and do what…

'The only good thing about Texans is that they make us Floridians look good"

Yeah Baby!!!! ;-) We is smarter here!

Hey click on my name for some good news from CA!

I'd say Texans deserve the idiots they produce for supporting people like him, but this the problem is that some Texans leave Texas (and eventually become president), then we have to deal with the "slack jawed morons."

*Although I guess that the current Texan president isn't really from Texas... but I'm sure it'd be ok to give him an honorary Texas public eduction.
