Texas is for sale. After the governor, Rick Perry, indicated that he Texans should start thinking about seceding from the United States - because of all the benefits that would bring - someone decided to put the entire state up for sale. On eBay. It can be yours for $99,999,999.00! Oh, wait, that's the latest bid, so you would probably have to push it up to at least $100 million. Still a bargain at twice the price! Dallas alone is probably worth at least $100 million!
Gov. Perry seems somehow oblivious to the irony that the federal government he claims is so oppressive was headed for the last 8 years by one of his predecessors as a Republican governor of Texas. Like I always say, irony is 9/10 of the law.
