Better tread carefully.
Texas loves, guns, football, and go karts.
I imagine the whole state like Yosemite Sam... 10 gallon hat and at least two firearms.

"Q: Are machine guns / suppressors / short-barreled firearms, etc. legal in the state of Texas?
A: Yes. All NFA rules apply. See this FAQ for more info regarding Class III / Title II items."

You know what? Scratch my previous post. I am a flag-waving Anthem-standing gun-toting red-blooded American who doesn't care much for football and doesn't like the NFL and I don't have to justify myself to anybody.

I whole heartedly disagree. Forced nationalism is un-American.

Federal holiday? I'm ok with the national anthem then. Private, for-profit sporting event? You've got to be kidding me....

Who cares what "they" do, we shouldn't be mixing patriotism with a non-governmental, tax-exempt, for-profit entertainment company!

Kidding aside, Fear Based Forced American Patriotism is the grease that keeps the "globalization" machine running. I know any individual person is smart enough to realize that the government doesn't not operate on behave of the citizens. BUT groups of people, the masses, are dumb as rocks. HTF do so many people still believe the BS and refuse to accept that our entire lifestyle was designed by bankers, who control the government, whose laws ensure that resources remain scarce, so citizens struggle to obtain the things they are conditioned to need, forcing them to work the majority of their life - to pay off the interest on the loans for the things they "need".

The current job of the government is NOT to change things. The government's job is to KEEP things how they are now - the way it has been. This corrupt system has been operating for a long time. And EXTREME measures have been taken to ensure that the system remains intact.

Don't rock the boat! The puppeteers get scared when the public protests, when football players don't stand at the National Anthem... when citizens don't fall in line. What happens when the puppeteers get frightened? You loose your rights. For purposes of "National Security" because of "Threats to the American Way of Life", the government can spy on you, declare you a "terrorist", lock you up, and forget about you. This is how the government deals with threats to the "Corrupt System" NOT threats to "The American Way of Life". Unless you accept that the "Corrupt System" and the "American Way of Life" are the same thing.

World Bank
Federal Reserve
Christian Religions
DC
London City
Vatican City
Roman Empire
Corporate Empire
National Banking Act
Federal Reserve Act
The Crusades
WWI, WWII, and Every War the US has been involved in since
Patriot Act
Citizens United...
I left the most obvious and horrific act ever done on US soil, to ensure that the wheel keeps turning, off the list. (I'm sure you can guess).

Uggghhh Now I'm depressed... AND breaking all sorts of rules.
Discussing politics is frowned upon, because the spread of info is detrimental to the system. Watch out Internet.. Your Freedom of Speech Rights will soon be under attack. Terrorists use the dark web, so Web monitoring and censorship is a must! Blow up a building and start a war. That way a law can get written, so the system can slow how quickly the public's eyes are opened.

But there is no time to think about this. You work 50 hrs a week to pay the mortgage and three car loans. The engine blew just as the warranty expired on the last one. Your 16 daughter just got knocked up because Catholics don't like condoms and masturbation is a sin. The cable went out and The Walking Dead is about to come on. Then off to Church to make my donation and ask for forgiveness.

Ain't nobody got free time to think about change.

Not surprised Minnesota is so low on the list. It's been going down hill the last decade or more. Glad I'm close to moving the back away from this garbage out of a state.
