Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Texas in the sights of the EPA...

Found via at

Regulation: The federal agency declares Texas unfit to regulate its own greenhouse gas emissions and seizes control of the permitting process. Jobs, states' rights and the 2012 presidential election are all involved.

While most of America was unwrapping their Christmas presents, Texas Gov. Rick Perry was staring at a lump of coal the Environmental Protection Agency put in his state's stocking.

Actually, it wasn't a lump of coal — that causes global warming. And Santa won't be coming down any Texas chimney unless he checks with the EPA first.

Two days before Christmas, EPA Regional Administrator Al Armendariz, in a letter to industry, said the agency was taking permitting authority over refineries, power plants and cement facilities in Texas away from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) as of Jan. 2, 2011.

Happy New Year!

The EPA's new rules — continuing an Obama administration pattern of using regulations to circumvent the will of the people in implementing what it cannot get through Congress, such as cap-and-trade — were issued after the U.S. Supreme Court said it had the authority to regulate carbon dioxide, the basis of all life on the planet and what we exhale, as a pollutant under the Clean Air Act.

Texas was not amused and is the only state to refuse to implement the rules, filing suit against the EPA.

In Texas' suit, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said the documented IPCC and CRU fraud, on which EPA findings are based, made any policy decisions based on that work flawed and unjustified.

Abbott cited several examples in which he said climate scientists engaged in an "ongoing, orchestrated effort to violate freedom of information laws, exclude scientific research and manipulate temperature data."

"With billions of dollars at stake, EPA outsourced the scientific basis for its greenhouse gas regulation to a scandal-plagued international organization (the IPCC) that cannot be considered objective or trustworthy," Abbott argued.

Perry , a champion of the 10th Amendment, says, "This legal action is being taken to protect the Texas economy and the jobs that go with it, as well as defend Texas' freedom to continue our successful environmental strategies free from federal overreach."

Two days after the midterm elections, President Obama served notice that the failure of the outgoing Congress to pass cap-and-trade and the unlikelihood of a GOP House pursuing the matter would not be an impediment.

"Cap-and-trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way," he said. "I'm going to be looking for other means to address this problem."

Perry, a possible 2012 presidential contender, is a cat that refuses to be skinned without a fight. Perry calls the rules an overreach by the federal behemoth that will cripple his state's growing economy.

"The EPA's misguided plan paints a huge target on the backs of Texas agriculture and energy producers by implementing unnecessary, burdensome mandates on our state's energy sector, threatening hundreds of thousands of Texas jobs and imposing increased living costs on Texas families," Katherine Cesinger, a Perry spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement.

TCEQ is the world's second-largest environmental regulatory agency, after the EPA. Cesinger notes that the state's flexible air-quality permitting system, one that considers economic impact, has led to a 22% reduction in ozone and a 53% decrease in nitrous oxide since 2000.

This is not about the environment, but about power. It's about whether we will remain a constitutional republic in which the states retain the powers not given to the feds by the Constitution, or whether the feds can arbitrarily control our lives and usurp our freedoms based on flawed science and political ideology.

"Remember the EPA!" may soon rival "Remember the Alamo!" as a battle cry for freedom. The year 2012 may turn out to be a very interesting and pivotal one.

(End of story. My comments follow.)

Liberals hate our guts down here.

Call it a tinfoil-hat-level conspiracy theory, point to the enclaves of liberal thinking we have such as the city of Austin, cite all the MSM outlets that pour progressive tripe into our brains. If that all helps folk feel better about how Texas is perceived, they should go for it.

I'll say it again, liberals hate our guts.

We're the home of BOTH Bush Presidents nor are we backwards about it. We're the ingenious bastards that can deepfry anything, even beer! We still have "Christmas" down here, when shopping in our stores at this time of year you'll hear hymns over the announcing system (sorry, no Gregorian Chant). We're known as rednecks and proud of it. Our governor has been one of the leaders in referring to the 10th Amendment of the Constitution when talking of state's rights. He's also the one that faced the President after his landing here and asked to speak about illegal immigration problems. B.O. said they'd talk "later", as far as I know that never happened but hey, Rick Perry did what he could!

So as the EPA starts taking over our day-to-day lives, where would the liberal, tree hugging, Birkenstock wearing, sissy-assed, prancing, Segway riding metrosexuals that pull the strings set their sights (the only time they could be remotely accused of aiming anything, even when they pee the girlyboys have to sit down).

Here's where the final battles begin ladies and gentlemen, the fights that decide if we take back our nation or just keep on becoming a country of limpwristed, bicycle seat sniffing, perfectly coiffed eunuchs.

No retreat, no surrender. And that lardassed butch "First Lady" will get my corndog when she pries it out of my cold dead hands.

I might be a Yankee but I live down here and like it!
