By Bifford Caulfield -- Rick Perry said a while back that he thought Texas should secede from the United States. I think that's a great idea. Congress ought to pass a bill permitting Texas to secede from the union, provided they take Mississippi, Alabama, and Kentucky with them. Then the United States could declare war on Texas and friends and bomb them back into the Stone Age. It'd be a win-win. Those right winger crazies have been working their butts off trying to take us back to the Stone Age for years (maybe decades) -- so we could just speed them up a little. They'd be eternally grateful -- from civilization to Stone Age in 60 seconds -- and we'd be rid of the nutty sons-a-bitches once and for all.
