You may all go to hell...

Yes. You may all go to hell and I will go to Texas.

This phrase was first uttered by Davy Crockett of Tennessee after he lost a Congressional election in 1835, but it works for me too now that Chuck Norris is considering running for President in a post-secession Texas.
Martial-arts master Chuck Norris has his sights set on becoming more than a Texas Ranger - he has volunteered to run as the state's first president.

Norris, who played TV hardman Cordell Walker in hit series Walker, Texas Ranger, has put himself up for the job of running the region after discussing the possibility of the state seceding from U.S. control during a rant on CNN.com's political blog.

The actor, who is a staunch Republican, insists Texans want an independent state after being let down by the American government - and thinks he'd be the ideal candidate to lead the Lone Star state's revolution.

He says, "I may run for president of Texas. That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.

"Anyone who has been around Texas for any length of time knows exactly what we'd do if the going got rough in America."
Lagniappe and I talked it over and we decided that we're long overdue for a good fight. So if Texas does secede, me and my ammo-bearing German Shepherd will be heading south to support President Norris. and he'll need it, what with a corrupt socialist government to the north and Mexico to the south.

Hail to the Chief...or else he'll kick you into the middle of next week.


  1. You DO remember what I plan to do to you to make you stay, right?

  2. Talk is cheap.

  3. We'll see this weekend, won't we...

    If Chuck Norris is going to run things the way that he talks, I'm definitely there!

  7. I have already made it clear to all the damn yankees up this way that I am leaving as soon as any of my southerners decide to secede from the nation. I supported the seccession back when it first happened and I still support now. The South WILL rise again!! And this southerner will be right there to support any state that does! :)

  8. Man I hope the Republic of Texas will accept Arizona refugees.

  9. My sister and a bunch of cousins already live there. Maybe they can sponsor me ??

    Plus I went to basic training and advanced training there. I have about 7 months of verifiable time living there. I am almost part Texan ? :)

  10. Hey, do you read Breda's blog? She's a librarian, gunblogger, and an amputee, and in the comments to the linked blog post, expresses doubt about running on a prosthetic leg. Could you maybe go over and give her some encouragement? You'll be reading a really good blog, while you're at it.


  11. I shall get right on that, Bob...just as soon as I unwind a bit following the seven mile run I just completed. :-)

  12. My roomie and I have already decided that we're moving to the first state that secedes...

    (WV: "spolide", which is a chunk of splodeydope that re-enters the atmosphere.)

  13. Saturday Bulletin from Leesburg----

    Pretty clever and sneaky, taking your date to a Gun Show in the hopes she will buy you something!

    Lucky Dog. Bright, articulate, enjoys firearms and gorgeous--all in one little package. This looks serious since the competition--Big Dog--was left at home!

    Again, criticizing socialism whilst being pro-police. Police are part of socialism!!! Unless the police are paid for privately, that is SOCIALSIM! Don't you see that?

    You knock socialism, you knock police. You can't have it both ways. Same goes for the military. It is socialist as well.

  15. Police and military are socialist? Just the opposite. They are the very hallmarks of a free society.

    We, as individuals, have rights, and the right to life and liberty are the most significant. We, as a society, can delegate authority consistent with those rights to groups that we set up and control--in this case, the police and military. They are not our bosses--they are the projection of our right to defend and protect ourselves and they operate on behalf of and in furtherance of our free society.
