Thank you for the unofficial welcome
There were a few states and a couple of foreign countries between me leaving CA and making TX home,, but I got here as fast as I could and have tired to assimilate as quietly and efficiently as possible
I appreciate the welcome too. It was tough getting out of that state, though. Getting the funds to finally ditch the Peoples Republic literally took the power of Trump. Packing up and getting out was a logistical nightmare due to where I used to live. The backwards state also tried to do me in with flooded freeways and roads made of Swiss cheese while making my last drive through the final stretches of Commiefornia. But I finally made it to American soil, where the rest of the move, unpacking, and welcoming was so overwhelmingly easy and joyous that happy tears were practically streaming down my face. It's almost as if the Texan Gods welcomed me to this fine state.
Do I miss the ol' home? Not at all. But I do genuinely feel bad for the folks who still couldn't make it out of there.
For those who are bracing for the oncoming storm of the Commiefornians, I wouldn't worry too much. Sure there are those few that come here missing their homeland and wishing it to be the same, making it a smidge scary, but the truly scary folks would die before stepping into this "racist, oppressive cowboy/redneck state where no one's nice." Seriously, some of my more narrow-minded coworkers really do believe that about Texas, and I don't think any sort of convincing will sway their opinion. Fine by me. People like that with their narrow viewpoints are the main reason I left that state. It truly is great to no longer have to deal with racist, oppressive people who aren't nice to me. Hopefully, their minds will open and realize what constitutional freedom really is and the values that we Americans really hold.
Aaaaanyhow, with regards to the LEO article, kudos for them exploiting loopholes on oppressive laws for the common good. I mean... those LEOs are gun enthusiasts who just want some shiny, new toys. It's not their fault they can't rent them before buying something they can't return. How else would they recoup their losses if they didn't like that particular firearm?
