    Happy Texas Independence Day

    On March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico and became the Republic of Texas.

    The Texas Declaration of Independence was produced, literally, overnight. Its urgency was paramount, because while it was being prepared, the Alamo in San Antonio was under seige by Santa Anna's army of Mexico.

    Immediately upon the assemblage of the Convention of 1836 on March 1, a committee of five of its delegates were appointed to draft the document.

    The committee, consisting of George C. Childress, Edward Conrad, James Gaines, Bailey Hardeman, and Collin McKinney, prepared the declaration in record time. It was briefly reviewed, then adopted by the delegates of the convention the following day.

    If you’re a native Texan, take a minute today, and review the relevance of this day, and the figures in our state’s history who because of their sacrifices, made us arguably the most recognized state in the union worldwide.

    After all, if it weren’t for these guys, there’d be no Dallas Cowboys, no Tom Landry, and we might possibly be Eagles or Redskin fans!

    If you’re not a native Texan, well, all I can say is, I’m sorry.

    It's not rooting for the bad guy when you make it Texian style and say a supper prayer blessing the souls of those that gave their lives to defend the Alamo and to make Texas an Independent country

    If anyone here has ever seen 'Full Metal Jacket', you'll know that there's only two things in Texas: steers and queers. :D

    Actually, my dad was born in Mesquite. I still have some relatives that live in Terrell and Lufkin.

    Yea, this from some spare, standing in a parking lot, dressed as a Star Wars reject, warming up to apparently violate the tailpipe of a low mileage, 75 Plymouth Pacer!!
