In 1853 Illinois passed a law where if a black person showed up and stayed more than 10 days they got a hefty fine. I thought, you know, drop the racial requirement and what a great idea! Why? Shortly after I read that bit of history I read a post from galby68 wherein he wondered why so many Arizona plates in Portland. I drive around Dallas and often wonder where all the Texans are. Judging by license plates from everywhere, including Hawaii (last I looked there was no bridge), Texans are few and far between. Particularly on weekends when they’re all in Oklahoma or Colorado buying weed or gambling and dumping money into more progressive state’s coffers.
Granted, if I lived in Detroit I’d haul ass outta there ASAP, but otherwise why Texas? Missouri and Mississippi and the Carolinas, Arkansas, Kansas, Arizona, Georgia, New Mexico…Those places are livable. What the hell y’all doin’ here? Besides playin’ with your phones at stoplights and causing everyone behind you to sit through another cycle, or driving the speed limit on the Autobahns or consulting your GPS at 4 MPH and then crossing four lanes of traffic instead of turning around a block further on to get to Chick Fil A?
More than 10 days, no Texas plates? Adios. Except Winter Texans. How can we send the entire senior population of Minnesota back en masse when we can’t even evacuate all the Katrina leftovers from Galveston when a new hurricane threatens?
