But the Astros have the best record in the league. Maybe they should get the honor of using the state name...

The Garland, TX Police - Traffic Division, now has more confirmed terrorist kills than the TSA.

Heard that on the radio this morning. Don't know if it is accurate or not, but humorous, to me anyway.

Most TSA agents are unarmed, so they'd have to kill a terrorist with their bare hands.

Still, a cop with a handgun taking down two terrorists with assault rifles is mighty impressive.

I've never had to kill anyone. I just lock my doors, which has saved me a lot on ammo and legal expenses.

Yesterday a drugstore robber in Phoenix was shot and killed by a customer.

A few years ago, I bought a "Don't Mess With Texas" bumper sticker. You don't see a lot of those in MN.

It was rather expensive, but the seller threw in an older F-150 pickup that was attached to the bumper sticker.

I learned that bit of advice long ago. The Baboo was born in Bay City.

Where's Gov. Goodhair when you need him? "Don't Mess With Texas®" is a registered trademark, and is probably being used on this Bored without permission...
