I can understand how that could be perceived as ironic, but I believe the meaning is that the Federal Government should stay out of the State affairs of Texas. That while addressing national security issues such as the horrific lack of security at the border.

The Obama Administration seems to be intent on selectively enforcing federal laws and when a state decides to enforce federal law that Obama & Co doesn't like the force of the federal government is brought upon said state in spite.

You call it irony, I call it authoritarian measures run amock.

Gosh, I thought federal law trumped state law.

Just what we need on this board, another angry, ill-informed conservative.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
