    Happy Texas Independence Day

    On this day back in 1836, the Republic of Texas was formed.

    We, therefore, the delegates with plenary powers of the people of Texas, in solemn convention assembled, appealing to a candid world for the necessities of our condition, do hereby resolve and declare, that our political connection with the Mexican nation has forever ended, and that the people of Texas do now constitute a free, Sovereign, and independent republic, and are fully invested with all the rights and attributes which properly belong to independent nations; and, conscious of the rectitude of our intentions, we fearlessly and confidently commit the issue to the decision of the Supreme arbiter of the destinies of nations.

    The nation that couldn't pay their bills or support their own government, so they came running to the United States to take them in and save the day.

    They're welcome.

    I thought it was Happy "Wilt Hangs 100 on the Knicks" Day. Fifty years ago today.

    It's alright to be jealous.

    Not jealous, just not impressed by Texas's effort at independence. They failed miserably and couldn't support themselves.

    They're proud of it, but there isn't much to be proud of. The achievement was good enough, the execution failed.
