Rape, theft, and murder have been illegal ever since before we had laws. Suppose we ought to just shrug and legalize those behaviors, too, since we are losing those wars. In fact, there's an endless list of things we could legalize in order to punish those uppity bootleggers.

The primary purpose of the controlled substance laws is to grant a health-care monopoly to the federal government and it's agents. If you ever get cancer you will belatedly discover that you have no freedom when it comes to your treatment. You are channelled into barbaric, government-approved treatments, even though most of the cures are as bad as the disease. And someday you won't even be able to buy an aspirin without a prescription. Or a can of aerosol paint, because some suicidal numbskulls insist on abusing it.

I hope you enjoy being a slave to the government's health care system, and I especially hope you enjoy it as more and more of your paycheck goes to subsidize it.

I'm glad you asked. . .

TEXIAN. A word (in Spanish Tejano) describing both male and female citizens or the culture of the former province of Tejas, New Spain, the Texas section of the state of Coahuila y Tejas, Republic of Mexico, and the subsequent Republic of Texas.

Government officials including Miguel Ramos Arispe, author of the Mexican Constitution of 1824, referred to the residents of Texas as Tejanos. President of the Texas Republic, Mirabeau B. Lamar, used the term Texian to promote national pride. The current term Texan eventually replaced both terms after annexation.

Flyer, some see you as just another piece of paper ie:brochure,3x5,8.5x11,or just a flyer.

My friend I see you as a very valuable asset to our group and appreciate all you do for HAT.

Great pics friend!

Great pix, Flyer! I will even admit that every time
The Texian's "Twin Sisters" cannon fired, I got a lump
in my throat!

Thanks for the great pics! It looks like a great time was had by all. I especially love the pictures of Humblegunner defending our Republic. Was there a good turnout? I was at the Texans' Draft Day at the Dome (celebrating current Texan stuff) but I thought of y'all and I promise I'll try to stop having plans on the thrid Saturday of the month. :)

"I was just sorry I couldn't find ya'll!!'

The turnout was massive, we had difficulty keeping
up with folks we came with! It is a very large park.

We look forward to seeing you again! I'm not even sure if
the "3rd weekend" formula is still in effect, things
have either accelerated or gotten more spontaneous, I can't
decide! I will make a point of informing you, regardless..

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I can't believe that I am a born and bred Texas, but had never heard the term. I have heard "Texican", though, and I have never liked that!

"This is a rough country," Amos was saying. "It's a country knows how to scour a human man right off the face of itself. A Texan is nothing but a human man way out on a limb. This year, and next year, and maybe for a hundred more. But I don't think it'll be forever. Someday this country will be a fine good place to be. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground before that time can come."

Alan Le May--"The Searchers" (1954) (Harper & Brothers)

In the movie they changed Amos' name to Ethan. They also had Mrs. Jorgensen speak the above lines and they changed "Texan" to "Texican."

Happy belated San Jacinto Day to all my fellow Texans, Texians, Texicans, Tejanos, Houstonians, 09ers, etc. By the way, is there anybody out there old enough to remember the board game Texas Millionaire which was sold in the late 1950s and early 60s?

Jan Jacinto was a series and hugh mistake. You should be ashamed. I never make misteaks like that.
