Puzzle — 4:10 The big pussy cat was no problem, but I kept getting lost on that path! 3:39 on the 2nd try.

MoveOn — I have to confess that I drink bottled water mainly for the taste. But it is also much more convenient when I am on the run. I drink 3-4 litres of water most days so it really does help. But, EVERY bottle goes to recycling! When we buy any pop or water, we are charged a .05 refundable bottle deposit for 1 litre or less bottles, and a .03 non-refundable enviro fee. Larger bottles are more. Me bad for now.

NY Times — I have never seen such a bunch of cry babies, and all because they didn't get their way! And if it were to come to a vote, will it be a simple majority vote? I am convinced that this is a Republican/Teabagger tantrum and there has been little or no thought into just what secession means. What about all the people who don't want secession? Many can't just up and move. And if this goes forth, I agree with you TC. "Good riddance, if that is what the majority wants, but only after they reimburse the US for all federal land in and all federal improvements to the state, in addition to returning all federal property from office equipment to military hardware."

Think Progress — Not amazing at all when you consider all the really dumb things that Republicans have said and believe — think Mourdock, Akin, etc, etc! Very good presentation. Love how those Republican/Teabaggers melted in the wild fire!

Cartoon — Oh yea! DOWN

That's the problem Lynn, it is only a handful of idiots who want to secede....150,000 misguided baggers vs. 37 million other residents (TX). It is also the problem of most of us here cannot just up and leave or believe me, we would have done it years ago right after Dubya became the Governor. This state has been on the downward spiral ever since....down the looneytoons spiral. But, tell you what, if I get some bagger to buy this place we are sooooooooooooo out of here and into the 'Blue Zone'.

Thanks Tom for the post.
I use tap water and nothing else.
Most everybody is smarter than the average GOPer.
Let Texas go. Those idiots who want to secede have no idea what they will be facing as a nation.
Great cartoon.
Read, viewed and noted.

Ty Tom...have a good week.

I use Brita filtered tap also. . .the cat and dog prefer it as well.

There has to be an island somewhere the secessionists and the entire GOP can all emigrate to. . .

Science Girl presenting her dynamic demonstration of weather and climate change (how dirty energy causes dirty weather) was just BRILLIANT! And I am not in the least surprised that one young girl can show in a brief demonstration what the whole of the GOP and TP cannot begin to understand – that is because she is using more brain cells than the whole of the GOP and TP use combined!

(Over here a company has grown up over the last few years where you can buy all your energy as green energy – it costs a little more, but I think it is worth it so I do so. After it arrived the main energy companies started doing energy packages with some green energy in them.)

Thanks everyone. If the majority in any state do not want to secede, perhaps they should deport those that do and keep the undocumented workers that want to be here.
