For the love of Pete. Really.

Seriously.  Really.  I am, oddly I know, rendered slightly speechless.  Did you know this?  I guess the President of the United States is about to declare Martial Law in Texas.  Yep.  You read that correctly.  Martial Law in Texas.  He’s finally gonna do it folks.  Grab yer guns and yer bibles and yer chillun and run fer the hills.  The black President’s a-comin’.  Wait, make that the black, Muslim President who wants to enforce sharia law as well, is a-comin’ to take away yer guns and yer liberty.

I guess the plan is falling under something called the “Jade Helm 15” or some ridiculous, ASININE asininity that the chicken littles have come up with.  This plan is supposed to have something to do with descending upon the righteous state of Texas, rounding up all the God-fearing ‘real Amuricans’ and driving them into underground tunnels (under Walmarts, no less) where they will then be subjected to giving up their guns and who knows what else.  Held against their will I ‘spect.  Obviously.

Not only is this lunacy being allowed to be propagated on the airways, but the Governor of the state (a Mr. Greg Abbott) and, AND, the esteemed junior Senator-cum-Republican-candidate-for-the-highest-office-in-the-land Ted Cruz have jumped into the ridiculous asininity and “lent their support” to the people of the great state.  The governor has called up the Texas state Guard to be on alert.  (I know, right?)  The junior Senator has uttered asinine asininities such as that he gets where the conspiracy theorists are coming from because the federal government has done so much to take away our rights and freedoms.  I cannot even give this lunatic another piece of my precious time so I’m not going to find his direct quotes.  NOT worth it.

The Jade Helm 15 has something to do with military exercises being, well, exercised in areas of the world.  Could happen in the grand ol’ state of Texas.  Could happen in the distant waters of the Pacific Ocean.  Or some other such lonely place.  For a little more detail, I highly, highly suggest you wander on over to my all-time favorite site for a sane description of the lunacy that regularly assaults our country.  Jim at  Priceless.

In the meantime, I’m going to sit back and watch, in complete disbelief, the histrionics of the elected officials in that big ol’ state down yonder.  What is it down there? Do you think there’s something in the water?

Holy moses, lord love a duck, for pete’s sake, HOLD THE PRESSES!  I just heard, then saw, a hummingbird.  !!!!!!!!!!!

Got to run folks.  Must go fill the feeders.  That little guy is probably hungry.  I’m sure he had a long journey and we’ve got no flowers here yet.

Let the games begin!
