I once had this neighbor who had plastered on the rear bumper of his pickup a sticker I found a bit amusing.
It said “SECEDE.” Yes, the letters were in all caps.
He also had another sticker on the bumper that said he had served “proudly” in the U.S. armed forces.
Do you see the dichotomy here? I wrote about it once before, just before Christmas in 2012.
The “SECEDE” bumper sticker has been replaced by another one.
It says “God Bless Texas.” I noticed it right after the 2016 presidential election. My strongest hunch is that the election turned out the way he wanted it.
There’s another bit of irony, though. The fellow who coined the “God Bless Texas” slogan was a proud Democrat. He was crusty ol’ Bob Bullock, a former Texas lieutenant governor and state comptroller who died some years ago.
I cannot help but wonder if Bullock would be as glad as my neighbor is with the election outcome.
