They Grow Them Stupid in Texas.

Government by Tinfoil-Hat Wearers at the state level:
Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas Guard to monitor federal military exercises in Texas after some citizens have lit up the Internet saying the maneuvers are actually the prelude to martial law.
What a fucking low-wattage light bulb. You'd think that Texas would have had to really work hard to have found a governor who was dimmer than Rick Perry, but by gum, they did it.

Chimpy to Perry to Abbott: Talk about a downward spiral. The next GOP governor in Texas will likely be so dumb that he'll only have to be put out in the sun and watered twice a week.

Someone in Bastrop County, Texas, was worried that the military was coming there to gather intelligence, to which Juanita Jean on CrooksandLiars replied something like No, honey, if they wanted to do that they wouldn't come to Bastrop, 'cause there ain't none there...

Eh it could be him throwing the black helicopter crowd a bone to shut them up too. The Texas State Guard if I remember right is kinda like an army version of the Civil Air Patrol. This way he looks like he's taking the black helicopter crowd seriously-while not costing the state anything.

The thing that makes me just shake my head and want to cry is that people truly believed rumors that ISIS fighters were gonna be imported to Bastrop, TX. I just can't wrap my head around the mentality that would consider that a possibility, and that's just over 100 miles from here.

I assume this means the fine folks in Bastrop think that they won the civil war and aren't really part of the USA.

I think Snowdog's right, but if it leads to somebody snapping a cap, well...Abbott's gonna own it.

My favorite part is thinking that the Texas national guard would be able to repel the actual United States military.

@Professor Chaos:
I wasn't even the Texas National Guard, it was the Texas State Guard, which if I'm reading this right, are discouraged from carrying guns (except when using the special hunting license that is part of their compensation package...)
