Thanks to LC Guy S, we learn that governor Perry has, once again, told the fascist regime in DC to quit meddling:
The measure, sent to Gov. Rick Perry for consideration [he subsequently signed it], lets any incandescent light bulb manufactured in Texas – and sold in that state – avoid the authority of the federal government or the repeal of the 2007 energy independence act that starts phasing out some incandescent light bulbs next year.
We’ll be quite honest here and say that the new Ogabelini Mercury Bombs have progressed to the stage where the light from them isn’t downright offensive, but that’s not the point: The point is that there is no Constitutional authority for the retards in the DC swamp to tell us which kind of bulb we want to purchase and, Constitutional issues aside, nobody has any fucking business interfering with consumer choice. If one choice is superior to the other, it will win out in the market place without any interference needed.
If it isn’t, then nobody has the right to force you to choose the inferior product.
That’s the problem with the Ogabelini DC “Alliance”: They meddle.
We browncoats have an answer to that, and the fascists up there won’t like it.
We aim to misbehave, if we have to wade knee-deep through their blood to do so. That last bit actually sounds like a bonus.
Good for you, Perry!
Don’t mess with Texas!
“Secession by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Yes. I’m a secessionist. They have nothing we need, they have nothing we want. If they will not let us be, if they will not stay within their Constitutional constraints, if they will not honor the conditions set forth when we graciously allowed the Union to join us, then the devil take them and let the suffering be on their heads.
No amount of suffering can be worse than living under their tyranny.
Hoorah, hoorah, for southern rights hoorah,
hoorah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.
Come get some!
