Howdy yall

Help I'm a "yella dog democrat" trapped in our fair share of crazies Texas. I warned everyone here in 2003 that attacking Iraq would be Viet Nam II but with crazier "insurgents". I grew up during Viet Nam and witnessed the horrible cost of war. The horribly wounded, dead and a generation of PTSD damaged youth. And a war without end. I said all that the Iraq war would bring us was more dead or horribly wounded young people and a whole new generation of PTSD youth. And a new war without a definition of "WIN". Everyone here looked at me as if I'd shit on the coffee table. It's a bitch being right. BTW can anyone tell me how to incorporate the smiley faces to my post's.

1. Welcome, gasser85.

I'm Texas-born and raised. But I escaped decades ago to the liberal-friendly Pacific Northwest.

If you want to add smilies, click the 'Smilies' button in your text field, and it will bring up the emoticon menu. There are a lot of good ones there...

2. Trapped in Texas is difficult indeed.

Have you read Juanita Jean yet? She is a sassy texan who channels, I swear, Molly Ivins, and provides a lot of us with daily chuckles.

3. Howdy -

also trapped here in Brazoria County. I grew up in the midwest, spent a spell on the east coast, and now reside here south of Houston. Not bad day to day - it's warm here which is nice - but you don't want to actually address anything substantive with many of these folks. Especially if you are female, socialist and atheist - that comment alone would bring some pretty gaping stares.

There are many forums and groups here. If you want to talk about issues just concerning Texas this is the spot: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1078
