re: Pentagon plans to lift ban on transvestites and transexuals- July 1 - ShortyRob
[quote] I actually work with a trans (female pretending to be male). And I work in a school. I accidentally called the female pretending to be a man "she" in front of the kids yesterday and the female pretending to be male corrected me. It was an honest mistake though. #[/quote]I would ALWAYS call h...

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - ShortyRob
[quote]You keep saying "Texas has plenty of resources" and "far shittier places have succeeded" as if they are meaningful statements. They are not. [/quote]Declaring they aren't really isn't an argument. They in fact ARE meaningful. And, much of the rest of the typical American's belief rega...

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - ShortyRob
[quote]The inability of Texas to secede or sustain itself as an independent nation has NOTHING to do with a lack of resources, manpower or US military strength. The point is soaring over your head. [/quote]No. The point isn't soaring over my head. The point is just bull shite. Which is why event...

[quote]You keep posting this as if it means something. [/quote]Cause it does. Ya know. As a globalist yourself, you should really recognize that the ability of a reasonably vibrant place with educated people and good natural resources is useful in world trade. I realize this. So, who is the ant...

[quote]Far less vibrant places than Texas have managed to go it alone in the world. That's completely irrelevant, they weren't members of the United States.[/quote]It's relevant to the question of if a place like Texas can be economically viable alone. [quote]Nope, like every state we are ...

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - ShortyRob
Ya know the best part? If I had to bet on a state trying to pull the trigger on secession, I would bet on it eventually being a state that is largely Latino doing so. It is certainly AT LEAST as likely that the motivation for some state trying to leave will be based upon that type motivation ...

[quote]You're being intentionally obtuse [/quote]Not really. Far less vibrant places than Texas have managed to go it alone in the world. Texas would be fine in the long run. No. Nobody is going to fricking invade it(or another state like Cali if they do it). And, to be blunt, the way ...

[quote]This isn't the 18th century, the world has changed so dramatically that applying most of human history to our society is nonsensical. [/quote]But, in a way, you are correct. You see, in the 18th century, any sovereign entity in the world was HIGHLY reliant on its immediate neighbors for ...

[quote]The economic attractiveness of Texas, and any other US state, is highly dependent on the USD. The idea that you can just take the GDP of Texas and go about your way is incredibly naive. [/quote]Well then, it's a good thing I didn't say that. I never said it wouldn't have it's bumps. B...

[quote]So it seems the main tenant of an independent Texas would be that it would rule because it will restrict trade and hurt your own O&G industry in order to piss off your neighbors?

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - ShortyRob
[quote]As a proud lifelong Texan, secession is a wet dream fantasy with no basis in reality. Even if we had the support to vote in favor of it (we don't, less than 20% support it statewide) and the leadership to go along with it the federal government wouldn't let us. They wouldn't even need to fire...
