I just heard that the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in April has a new sponsor. It was called the "Texas 500," but now, it's the "National Rifle Association 500." Granted, the venue doesn't exactly attract an audience hostile to gun rights, especially given we're talking about NASCAR, and it's in Texas, but I see that as a very positive sign that NRA's influence isn't shrinking. I believe I heard membership increased by some 250,000 this year!

Using the First Amendment to support the Second. Gotta love it!

If i can find a job that pays what i'm making or better, my family will be Texas bound. I'm not playing around either. I'm not going to wait for the asshats here in PA to get control and screw me out of my Constitutional rights.

Even if you don't find equal pay, TX has no state income tax, and the cost of living in many areas is less than the high-regulation, heavy unionized states, so homes cost less, and you can enjoy the same or better standard of living with less income.

I've been amazed at some of the $ amounts on homes in many areas around Texas. You certainly get a lot more home down there. I loved my time in the San Antonio area when i was in the AF going through basic and Loadmaster training. I have family in the Plano and Grapevine area as well.

There won't be a single instance of road rage or a drive- by to be seen.
No wait... Kurt Busch isn't driving, is he?
