Bet she's on the DHS 'list' now. Just another example of one of those knuckle dragging, gun carrying, bible toting right wingers.

And so the very first thing she expresses (to raucous cheers) is the desire to secede from it. That's some love she's showing.

Brian,

By your definition all those Hollywood stars who threatened to leave America didn't love it.

And not a teleprompter in sight. She even quotes Jefferson without looking at her notes.
I do disagree with this statement: "No president is going to change your life circumstances."
Our President is trying pretty hard to change the life circumstances of everybody who has actually worked for what they have.

They're welcome to leave if they want. That's not the same as advocating the dismantling of the country, and being enthusiastically cheered for it.

Jeez. Her comment about secession was obviously hyperbole. It's a common speechmaking technique taught to, and easily recognized by, high school juniors.
A little later in her speech she advocates replacing the members of the Congress. Kind of hard to do after secession. Why don't you look up hyperbole and advocate in the dictionary.

I don't know, Kim. Katrina just met all these people and she's already bragging at 100dB about having a swimming pool.

Wait a minute. I followed the link. (I knew there had to be more to this post; there just HAD to be!)...

Katrina Pierson is Michelle Malkin's candidate as the Anti-Garafalo for April 20-21, 2009 A.D...........

..........Well, anyway, I must side with Jeanne Garafalo and her self-effacing schtick full of self-loathing over the Katrina and her Talented Tenth prospectus (and the hundreds of other potential Anti-Gs, whoever they may be). And speaking of Garafalo, the complete The Ben Stiller Show is a must-have DVD.

Jake:

"Her comment about secession was obviously hyperbole"

Obvious? Sorry, she didn't seem to convey much other than her own words:

"If I had my choice, Texas would close its borders and secede from the Union."

Pretty clearly to me.

But, I think it's hilarious that on the day we're talking about the foreign policy implications of a handshake, reacting as negatively as possible. Yet we're also supposed to suspend her own words in the best possible interpretation.

Hypocrisy. It's what's for breakfast.

hyperbolist:

Jake, taking this girl's treasonous proclamations at face value makes you a traitor. Or at the very least a spoil sport.

iwogisdead, when your taxes go down, be sure to give the money back to the government. Can't have the President changing your life circumstances.

I didn't get the impression that her talk about secession was hyperbole. I don't have any problems with people wanting to secede from the union; secession should always be an option.

"Honestly put, kawaika. And do you then have no problem with government forces trying to arrest or kill all who would commit treason by seceding?"

I do have a problem with that, but I would understand why they would want to stop states from seceding. If Texas wants to secede, then I would support Texas. The same goes for any other state, regardless of which political party is in power. I guess that makes me an enemy of the state, but I do not consider myself an enemy of the USA, nor anti-American.

Supposedly Texas has a special right to secession that other states do not have. To me this is nonsense; if one state has that right then all do. I actually do not care whether states have a "right" to secede or not, I believe they should be able to secede. It is a self-evident right which is discussed in the Declaration of Independence. Obviously there will be people who disagree, even forcefully.

marc:

Considering she doesn't have the power to do what she wished for, in addition to her later statement about advocating the replacement [of] the members of the Congress put it plainly in the hyperbole category.

maggie:

kawaika,
Texas is a unique historical situation. Texas was annexed into the United States under a treaty signed while she was a Nation. By treaty Texas has the right of option to secede.

kawaika:

Maggie, thanks, I will have to look into it some more. If what you say is true, then how could Texans be considered treasonous if they secede?

maggie:

Texas seceded unsuccessfully during the civil
war, as by treaty. The US is not known for
keeping her side of treaties with those who
live here.
But no, regardless of what the federal government
feels is right, Texas does have that right.
Doesn't mean she'll be allowed.

Brian:

By treaty Texas has the right of option to secede.

That silly myth was once again debunked days ago after Rick Perry began his yahootin'. Though 31% of Texans still believe it. Go figure.

And if you don't believe that liberal Dallas Morning News:

Neither [the Joint Resolution for Annexing Texas to the United States] or the ordinance passed by the Republic of Texas' Annexation Convention gave Texas the right to secede.

Brian:

Jeez. Her comment about secession was obviously hyperbole. It's a common speechmaking technique taught to, and easily recognized by, high school juniors.

But we're told by JB that Alex Baldwin was speaking literally, so we must extend the same interpretation to Ms. Pierson.

A nice legend though. So Texas' is unique in
her entry, as a nation, annexed into statehood.

Rance:

According to Tom Delay's speech, Texas still has the right to divide into 5 smaller states. He reasons that if Texas were to do that, the Senate would throw them out of the union rather than give them the additional 8 senators.

Unrepentant Democrat:

The most important question is: why on earth would anyone care whether they leave the Union? After all we have Texas to thank for Bush x2 and Johnson.

I say don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Oh, and any of you trying to cross the borders are illegals, you know those folks Malkin et al love to hate. Lastly, forget about your Medicare payments and your Social Security payments, you know, those "socialist" programs you also hate. What? You've changed your mind?

JLawson:

The kinky bastards would likely wear the latter, and use the former for toilet paper.

We've created an elected class that isn't at all concerned about the feelings of those that put it there. We ought to be seriously worried... and we need to make THEM aware that THEY serve at OUR pleasure.
