    Let’s succeed, or Let’s secede... either way works for me!
    Both are right!

    Texans, write your congress person in the Texas House and ask them to support this Resolution. Here's the link where you can find who your Rep is and write to them.

    This might be our only chance to stop this insanity! I just wrote to mine. Only takes a minute. It's HCR 50 written by Creighton. Here's what I wrote:

    We live in historic times which calls for historic action. I applaud Rep. Creighton for introducing this piece of legislation to the Texas House, and would ask you to support it with your vote. As the Federal government continues to erode our freedoms and liberties everyday with the promise of more and more Federal intervention and the resulting encroachment and restrictions on states rights, I implore you to join with fellow House members in support of this legislation. Many other states are considering the same action and I would ask that Texas lead the charge.

    DALLAS (Dallas Morning News) – A new report from Moody’s Economy.com and Fiserve Lending Solutions predicts when Texas home price declines will bottom out and what the peak-to-bottom price drop will look like.

    Most major Texas cities went into the home market downturn later than many throughout the country and will level off ahead of the U.S. average, according to the report’s analysts.

    Houston has one of the smallest expected home price declines in the country at 0.2 percent. Analysts expect the city’s home price decline to bottom out in third quarter 2009.

    Austin’s peak to bottom home price is expected to fall by 1.3 percent, hitting bottom in fourth quarter 2009.

    Dallas–Fort Worth’s price decline will come to 1.1 percent and bottom out in third quarter 2009.

    The report predicts San Antonio will experience the largest decrease in the state with a 1.6 percent decline, but it will bottom out in first quarter 2010.

    The overall U.S. market could see a price drop of 36.2 percent and bottom out in the fourth quarter of this year.

    This really didn't work out too well the last time in was tried.

    Santelli is great and has more savy than Geithner, Obama and the rest of his economic advisors put together. People are getting pissed that the 93% of us that pay our mortgages on time will have to subsidize the 7% that do not. Those that are struggling and have little or no equity in their homes but are still paying the mortgage on time will say to themselves, screw that, I will stop paying and let the government pay part of it and then the courts will tell the mortgage lenders that they will have to drop their interest rates and forgive a portion of the principal. Many people will do that along with asking for help with their utlities and want to know when their pony is coming. After all, that's what the government printing presses are for.:mad: This country is going to hell in a hand basket.

    That is true, but the history books consider that it officially got underway when the shooting war started

    don't forget John Brown at Harper's Ferry.

    John Brown saw himself as a tool that God Himself was going to use to wipe out slavery in the American South. Following his raid in Kansas in 1856, he had been devising a plan to purify the entire South through an armed slave rebellion that he himself would lead. John Brown believed that "without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins" (MacPherson, 117). Also, with all of the recent victories for Southern slave-holders (Kansas-Nebraska Act, Dred Scott decision, etc.) Brown thought that "violent counterstroke was the only answer" (Ibid., 117).


    Brown persuaded many abolitionists to support is ideas, and Frederick Douglas was one Brown attempted to recruit. Douglass, the night before Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, failed in an attempt to persuade Brown not to go forward with his plan. Brown's plan was this: Capture the Federal arsenal at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, seize all the weapons there, and arm thousands of slaves who were to join him. Brown recruited 17 white and five black men to comprise of his "army."


    On Oct. 16, 1859, Brown and his men captured the unguarded arsenal, but then he had no idea what to do next. He waited for the thousands of slaves to join him, but because he sent out little word to them, only a handful actually showed up. The word of the arsenal's capture spread rapidly, and during the night of Oct. 17-18, Brown's men were surrounded by marines commanded by Robert E. Lee and J.E.B. Stuart. Brown refused to surrender, and the marines were forced to storm the building they had surrounded. In all, three local men and several of Brown's followers, including two of his sons, and a total of 17 men had been killed. John Brown's attempt at insurrection had failed


    What Brown did not fail in doing was provoking violent uprising. His raid was as much of a cause of the Civil War as anything else, for it was the first nationally known uprising of its kind. And after his execution, those who believed him a saint now saw him as a martyr, and killing him was another opportunity for abolitionists in the North to gain strength.

    Bongo, that is a story that was not covered much in my high school history class. I knew about John Brown from my own reading as a kid-in one of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, their family gets a Congregational preacher who is related to John Brown, who was somewhat recent history in the 1880s, the way Abbie Hoffman and 60s radicals are now. So, I read up on it on my own at the library, which came in handy later, when my friends started asking who the guy was on the cover of the Kansas album.

    If a group of people organized with the intention of righting the wrongs in this country today, they would be labeled terrorists. Many on this very sight would jump on the bandwagon of calling for their execution. Terrorist is the second most powerful buzzword in the English language today, right behind racist.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
