224. Well with UAVs launching hellfire mssiles, it is kind of like a video game.
For the controller hundreds of miles away.


My point is, they can't secede, and this talk does absolutely nothing but rile them up. I'm a "Yankee Liberal", and have stated since the beginning that Texas cannot, and therefore wouldn't even try, to secede.
