Since so many of you didn't know where West was, and were surprised at the size..thought you would be interested in this bit of information..
Texas has a total of 268,820 square miles. So if you have ever heard Asleep at the Wheel sing "Miles and Miles of Texas", you know what they mean.
The width of Texas is 773 miles.
The length of Texas is 790 miles.
We have two time zones. Most of Texas is central time zone, but the tip of West(not the city),Texas is Mountain zone.
This is my favorite bit of Texas information. In 1836, Texas became The Independent Republic of Texas. We 'was' a country...we remained a Republic till it became the 28th State in 1845. So for 9 by Goddess years we were a country. See why we're so fucking smug and think our shit don't stink?...We also had our own Navy. Those were our glory days. Then Bible thumping Christians took over and we've been fucked every since. All apologies to my good Christian friends..You know which ones I mean. The ones that are more concerned about gay marriage than health care. Why if we had free health care, them homo's would all run out and get aids to benefit from it. sigh*
While I'm on my soap box( I decided to keep it out instead of leaving it in the shed), you yafta go to http://mudflats.wordpress.com/
and see the pictures posted from the anti-Palin demonstration. They rock....
I would like to ask a favor...go to the post office and get a stack of voter registration applications and start asking your friends if they're registered..if not ask them if they would like to..and then whip out the application..It can't hurt.
