There’s a bit of a lifestyle diff, but I cannot really come up with a political diff between Austin and N Korea...so what’s the problem if it gets nuked?

I think I just remembered something a few weeks back on FR. Wasn’t there a story about military readiness drills being conducted in Houston a few weeks/month ago?

I live in the heart of Austin and enjoy this city despite the lefties.

We may be outnumbered by the left here in Austin, but we conservatives are the front-line troops in a war of ideas with this rabid enemy of Marxism.

YW. It struck me as odd that there was a report of a rather large military exercise in Houston (of all places), and then Kim Jong Un threatens Austin, of all places.

Ponderous man, ponderous.

Bump!

“Texas is not where you were born but a State of Mind, Heart and Attitude.”

But Austin is eating the very Heart out of Texas.

Oh yeah. The people who make the NORKs look like America’s greatest ally in comparison.

Holy Crap......Being that Austin is the Capitol of Texas, and that the republican, conservative, and pro constitution nature of the state's leadership.....is it any wonder that the Norks under the guidance of the new world order would target the city.

I have suspected the Norks to be useful pawns of the Chinese, but now I understand who the true puppet masters are.
