Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation> Treaty of 1848.)>>>
We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to take action since B. Hussein Obama won the election. We'll miss you too.
Here is what can happen:
>> #1: Barack Hussein Obama becomes President of the United States ,> Texas immediately secedes from the Union .
>> #2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas .
>> So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?
>> 1. NASA is just south of Houston , Texas . We will control the space industry.
>> 2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .
>> 3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas ," will take on a whole new meaning.
>> 4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. Yankee states? Sorry about that.
>> 5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....
>> 6. Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications -- small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Miconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.
>> 7. Medical Care - We have the largest research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the> world, as well as other large health centers. Dallas has some of the> best hospitals in the United States .
>> 8. We have enough colleges to keep us going: University of Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Rice, SMU, University of Houston , Baylor,> UNT ( University of North Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.
>> 9. We have a ready supply of workers. We could just open the border when we need some more.
>> 10. We have essential control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance, etc.
>> 11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one.
If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over Chuck Norris and a couple of Texas Rangers.
>> 12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf.
Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.
>> This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of> Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and> don't have.
>> Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:
>> Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 9 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.
>> You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications.
>> You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.
>> Signed, The People of Texas>>
P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!
>> SLEEP WELL TONIGHT THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!
>> One Nation Under God ( NOT under the Messiah)

The defendant, identified only by his first name Majid, 27, was sentenced by the court to be blinded in both eyes, the hard-line daily Quds wrote. It added that Majid was found guilty of blinding a woman identified as Ameneh Bahrami in 2004.
The phrase "an eye for an eye" is very stringently adhered to in Iran's Islamic law. Iran's Islamic penal system regularly practices centuries-old sentences for petty crimes, such as amputation of limbs, eye gouging, stoning to death, and throwing prisoners off a cliff in a sac.
10 more executed this week
Tehran, Iran, Nov. 26 – Iranian authorities on Wednesday hanged 10 people, including a woman, in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison.
All 10 were accused of murder, the state-run news agency Fars quoted the official presiding over the executions, identified as Mr. Jabberi, as saying.
The woman was identified by other state media as Fatemeh Haqiqat-Pajouh. She was accused of killing her temporary husband, although there are reports that she did so since he had tried to rape her daughter from a previous marriage.
Iranian authorities routinely execute dissidents on bogus charges such as armed robbery and drug trafficking.
Executions in Iran have risen sharply in the second half of the year. At least 63 people were hanged in August, and 29 people were hanged simultaneously in Tehran on 25 July.
Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a modern security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of thousands of political executions. Ward 209 is exclusively set aside for political prisoners.

Another example of a disagreement with me about the current extent of British influence around the world, though historically what Reza states is accurate and factual.
To almost every Persian, everything "bad" that happens to them has the British behind the scenes causing it and like the bogey-man who scares children, Britain is the bogey-man scaring Persian adults.
This has a foundation in fact.
Until some 50 or 60 years ago, when Britain was still to some extent a world power, they meddled actively with Iran and Iranian politics. Mostly competing with the Soviets for power and to prevent America entering the Middle East stomping grounds that were traditionally a British "possession".
November 13th, 2008.
Mr. John Horam
MPHouse of Commons
Mr. John Horam;
In a recent report in one of the Iranian government's news agencies, they quoted that you have urged Houssein Obama to normalise relation with the Mullahs despotic regime in Iran.
This has come as no surprise to me and many Iranians.
The Iranian regime that the British government under James Callaghan and the democratic administration of the United States of America under Jimmy Carter had imposed on us in 1979, has killed too many people and has destroyed too many lives and families to be considered as the representative of our people and worthy of dialogue.
The terrorist regime of the Ayatollahs which has enjoyed Britain's continued support in the past
30 years has been responsible for the destruction of once a peaceful, progressive and promising country.
Since the so-called revolution of 1979, over one million people were killed in a needless 8-year war with Iraq which only benefited the western governments in Europe and America.
Over seven million Iranians from all walks of life became stateless refugees around the world. Several hundred thousands were arrested, tortured and executed amongst them women, student activists and even under aged children.
Assassination of exiles, public hangings on cranes, public stoning to death, mass executions inside the Mullah's prisons, amputation of limbs, eye extractions, public flogging are the regime's only form of dialogue with it's citizens.
A recent report by the UNHCR revealed that from 1986 to 1999 more than seven thousand Iranians were killed trying to escape the despotic regime by crossing borders.
With Inflation at %27, over 15 million unemployed, over 12 million addicted to drugs, Over 3 million kids homeless and the number rising. Depression and suicide amongst women and the youth, poverty and prostitution, looting of Iran's oil wealth by the Mullahs and the creation, training, support & the financing of terror organisations such as Hamas and Hezbollah are the whole mark of the regime of your favourite Ayatollahs.
Thanks to a D-Notice issued on Iran by the British government since 1979, apart from the Iranian NU-clear issue, President Meymoon Ahmaghi-nejad the Turd's occasional remarks denying the Holocaust, his recent letters to heads states including the most recent one to Houssein Obama or indeed the news of his exhaustion, none of the Mullahs human rights abuses receive coverage in your country.
Your continued hostility and animosity towards the Iranian nation proven by years of ignoring the human suffering in Iran combined with your continued unconditional support for the killer Mullahs has made Britain to be the most hated country amongst the Iranians both inside and the outside Iran.
Please let me remind you of the following facts incriminating you and your governments:
1- Your government systematically has done it's best to oppose regime change in Iran. (Please refer to the comments by the former British Foreign Office spokesman, Lord Treisman of Tottenham with the BBC Radio 4 in April of 2006). In it he said: "Britain will oppose regime change in Iran".
As if the Iranians have no right of self determination.
2- The commentary by your parliamentary speaker in July of 1999, when he referred to the students mass protesters as "a group of youngster whose brains were affected by too much heat & summer sun". I wonder if a student member of the speaker's family was dragged in the middle of night out of his or her dormitories and thrown out of the 4th and 5th floor balcony half naked, he would have said the same.
3- The Shah of Iran was benevolent leader who twice pardoned his would be assassins. He was a modernizer, a peace broker and a pillar of stability in the region. In the 70's, he helped Britain's ailing economy with his generosity, yet you hated him beyond comprehension and he became the thorn in the British eyes until you destroyed him and his dynasty. Your cruel and merciless media specially the BBC continued with the lies and hostility towards him combined with the systematic character assassination of him.
Your biased media never gave the opportunity to the Iranian monarchists to express their side of the argument. Had it not been for Iranian oil or the NU-clear dispute perhaps you would have deleted the word "Iran" and "the Iranians" from your dictionaries long ago.
4- An American observer monitoring the situation in Iran and the Middle East has recently told me that George Bush was never able to pursue regime change in Iran since Tony Blair and the British government had convinced the Americans that the regime change in Iran, self determination and the gaining the control of Iran's natural resources by the Iranians is
not in the long term interest of the western world.
With that in mind, the Brits skilfully engaged the Americans in a costly war with Iraq for as long as George Bush was in office.
As if Britain did not do enough damage and harm to Iran, by dividing my country more than five times in the past, stealing our oil for many decades, illegally occupying our country in 1941, killing thousands by waging an un-declared and unjust war with the defenseless country which had
absolutely nothing to do with your wars in 1941.
Overthrowing two of Iran's greatest kings in less than 40-years and imposing your crazy slaved Ayatollahs on us in February of 1979, you now recommend Houssein Obama to normalise relations with one of the most evil and unpopular regimes in the modern time?
Britain's continued Iran-hating position proves the point raised by Dr. Shapour Bakhtiar, the assassinated last Prime Minister of my country. Shortly before he was knifed to death in his home in Paris by the agents of the Islamic regime and in a meeting with the Iranian exiles in Los Angeles he said: "The Mullahs are the tools and the elements of the British government.
The British use the Mullahs when ever they want to inflict harm and pain on Iranians".
Having said all of the above, I wanted to ask you the following questions.
1- What is the underlying reason for Britain's hatred of Iran?
2- What did the Iranians do to deserve so much contempt and hatred from Britain?
3- How many more years of death, destruction and suffering before Britain pulls out their support from their crony and mercenary Ayatollahs?
We the people of Iran consider the reactionary regime in Iran as "The illegal government in Iran, by Britain, for Britain".
Please see below number of clips from You Tube on the regime's brutality of the Iranian citizen. Also below are some pictures that speak thousand words.
Reza Pardisan, London.
The overthrow of the late Shah of Iran in 1979 by Jimmy Carter & Britain was the great mistake of the 20th century. Iranians will not forget nor forgive.

We need to be afraid…and remain diligent…and involved more than ever to preserve our way of life and constitution less we lose it.
This one is factually true. You can Google Dr. Sam Vaknin, (a world authority on narcissism) and get the same information. This is most frightening, perhaps because it is more clinical than political…
Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer
By Ali Sina
I must confess, I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident, a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.
His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history.
Never a politician in this land had such a quasi “religious” impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact, he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.
Barack Obama is a narcissist.
Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of “Malignant Self Love,” also believes, “Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist.” Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands it and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person.
When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama’s language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, nearest and dearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).
Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People’s Temple , the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist.
Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Joe Stalin, Saddam, Mao Zedong, Kim Jong IL, and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time.
All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers and followers. They created a personality cult around themselves, and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirer’s souls, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life.
Those men gave their followers hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, they invariably brought them to their doom.
When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don’t know it until it is too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse.
“Obama’s early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,” says Vaknin.
“Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he as an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident.
His mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia , a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a stepfather. He was raised as an only child, full of himself and no others. He never had to share the spotlight with any siblings. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents.
He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995.”
One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands.
They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around him and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality; his admirers become his co-dependents.
Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objectives. They are focused on one thing alone, and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities.
Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention. If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it.
The “Present” vote is a safe vote; he used the “Present” all the time as a member of the Illinois legislature. No one can criticize him if things go wrong.
Why should he implicate himself in issues that may become controversial when they don’t help him personally? Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.
Obama’s election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and an advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him with a fellowship and an office to work on his book. The book took him a lot longer than expected and at the end it devolved into…, guess what? His own autobiography!
Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He entitled the book “Dreams from My Father.”
Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself?
Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama’s lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.
A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii , and who has raised nearly a half billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother.
Why? His brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.
This election is like no other election in the history of America .
The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of a conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?
I hate to sound alarmist, but one must be a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others. They are simply self-serving and selfish. [Witness Al Gore’s Income Tax; it reveals that he gave away NO MONEY to charities, not even to a church!]
Obama evinces symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton, for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw.
Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. [Look up the word ‘treachery.’]
Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party [and to this great nation].
The great majority of blacks have also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven.
Let us call a spade a spade [No pun intended]. This is racism, pure and simple. The truth is that, while everyone carries a misconceived collective guilt towards blacks forwrongs done centuries ago by a bygone people to a bygone people, the blacks carry a collective rancor, enmity or vendetta towards non-blacks, and to this day want to “stand up” to the white man.
They seem to be stuck in 19th century [encouraged by race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others.] The downside of this is, that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man.
Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama’s detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels not seen since the turbulent 1960s. (emphasis added)
Obama will set the clock back decades. America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America , and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Maoist Castroists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists, and virtually all sworn enemies of America areso thrilled by the prospect of “their man” in the White House.
America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president.

Pay particular attention to Soros, the Clintons, the EU and the UN. One world government is just around the corner. Desperate times call for desperate measures and our recent vote shows that we appear to be a confused desperate people. It is time for the evil ones to make their move!
This year will be looked upon as a watershed in modern history. The good, easy, fairly tranquil times that followed the collapse of Soviet communism, signaled by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, are over.
We've enjoyed nearly two decades in which the U.S. has been the unchallenged sole superpower and free-market capitalism has been the economic model for all the world, producing rising real incomes almost everywhere. We became accustomed to taking safety and prosperity for granted.
Both now look precarious.
For the first time since Joseph Stalin's death more than half a century ago we have to deal with a major power that has a taste for aggression. Vladimir Putin's Russia bears some of the marks of Hitler's Germany, especially in its desire to recover lost territories by force.
But Putin is not another Hitler by any means. A former secret policeman, he has more in common with Heinrich Himmler, the sinister head of the Nazi SS. Putin won't plunge us all into another world war. Russia, with its dwindling population and total reliance on high energy prices, is not strong enough for that. But Putin will push on every open door he finds, as his invasion of Georgia shows. He can be relied on to exploit any problem the West creates for itself and make it worse.
The sudden, brutal and frightening revelation of the weaknesses of world capitalism has been a shock. This will have serious tangible consequences for years to come--high unemployment, lost production and difficulty in securing capital for investment in new ideas and processes, to name only three. But even more important is the psychological impact produced by the reminder that free markets bring not only routine prosperity but also occasional disaster.
We are now painfully aware that human greed, often allied with reckless incompetence, imposes a heavy price on any self-regulating system. It produces hysteria and intellectual folly, as well as the dreadful temptation to turn to the state as the cure for all ills.
These twin evils--naked Russian aggression and the worst market crisis in a lifetime--have revealed a frightening vacuum in Western leadership.
It is a thousand pities that this time of testing has coincided with a U.S. presidential election. George W. Bush has not been lacking in courage or the powers of decision making. But the fact that he will soon leave the White House has limited his willingness to take on radical commitments.
In effect, the machinery of American leadership will not return to full power until mid-January. This leaves a gap that the ill fortune of the times and the malice of mischiefmakers render serious. We sense the lack of the firm hand of wise and confident government.
To make matters worse, Britain, which has often come to the rescue at times of hiatus or failure in U.S. leadership, has its weakest government in many years--a prime minister struggling desperately to keep himself in office, a hopelessly divided and demoralized ruling party and an untested opposition, whose chiefs lack the experience and ability to inspire public confidence.
