Leave, Hippies.

State after state is joining the wildfire grass roots movement to leave the Union, and who can blame them? Texas is leading the pack, with over 90,000 people signing a petition to exit the United States.

Typical Austin "Street Art"

But one Texan town is holding out against the popular surge of anti-Washington sentiment. Austin, home to Texas' vibrant music scene and thousands of hippies, wants to stay put in the land of hopium. 

Austin Hippies Acting Up

According to the Daily Caller, Austin's hippies have signed a counter petition, threatening to leave the Lone Star State if it leaves the Union.

Fleeing Texas

Off you go then, hippies. Use the back door.

No exceptions.

Nobody is saying that the people can't leave Austin for, say, San Francisco. I'm sure that the Republic of Texas wouldn't be all that broken up by an outpouring of hippies, drug addicts and freaks who are either surviving on trust funds from dead parents, sell drugs, or are welfare cheats (or all of the above).

If Texas leaves the Union, I'll petition for citizenship (bitterly clinging to God and guns there in fly-over country).

Good call, LL. Send them to San Francisco!

You'll be more than welcome here in the land of God and Guns.

To show you that my heart is in the right place, I will pledge money toward a bus ticket(s) to the Austin Hippy community's relocation to San Francisco. The State of Texas could charter busses but they'd only need to drive as far as the New Mexico (blue state) border. There, out of the Sovereign State, the Hippy gang could walk the rest of the way, or alternatively, settle in New Mexico where everyone is on welfare anyway...

Heartless? No. It's common sense.

LSP said...

LL, I sense the beginnings of a "campaign"...

Out, Hippies, Out!

Let them hitchhike (remember that?) from New Mexico to San Francisco. Or stay where they are. In the desert.

This is the silliness that federal government invasion of everything engenders.

LSP said...

I think you're right, Silverfiddle. But seriously, maybe it'll result in a "hippie migration." Result.

I was thinking we could get a bunch of engineers from A&M to dig a giant moat around Austin, then divert the Colorado River to fill it.

Now you're talking, Mattexian.
