I've never passed through there myself, so I'm just funnin'. I do remember the feed lots in Central California, though. Had to roll up the windows every time I drove through there!
The “13-bullet” line was a quote from the WaPo.
Oklahoma! The reddest state in the Union. Texas has a few municipalities that’ll end up banning the sale of your guns. Your guns will be welcome in every county in Oklahoma;)
Wasn’t Sebelius your governor for two terms? You’re my neighbor so I know your state is conservative but the possibility that a Malthusian liberal like her could win again should frighten gun companies away. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A!
I believe TX, like OK, has state pre-emption on gun laws where the municipalities cannot exceed state firearms laws. As an Oklahoman plus being involved in economic development for manufacturers, I am in favor of any move that brings that kind of jobs to OK. However, any company needing that kind of skilled workers better bring at least part of their own workforce because that is the toughest hire right now. Skilled machinists are being poached from one company to another and there are plenty retiring without an equivalent backfill of new skilled workers.
...and that’s why gun manufacturers should locate in Indiana. Local gun restrictions are prohibited and we’re right next door to Illinois so the poverty stricken vassal servants of that nanny state can peer across the border and catch an occassional glimpse of a free people.
I think it’s clear this is going to have to settled on the football field. It’ll be the first time in my adult life I’ll root for the Sooners.
Texas—Wyoming—Montana—South Dakota come to mind.
Tennessee has no income taxes.
Nebraska is considering dropping their income taxes.
Whtever the cost of the move, those are deductible expenses for the company no mtter where they go.
Having a talented labor pool will be a major consideration, altho I would expect the majority of 300 employees would welcome a move to a state without income taxes.
I have only been to the Texas Panhandle once, to watch Troy play West Texas State.
I did live in Western Kansas for 5 years and visited the Oklahoma Panhandle several times. Not a whole lot of difference.
Well, they could cross the Potomoc, although Virginia seems to be turning bluer, which might force them to move again later on.
Well, in both the last Primary (August) and November, we replaced our RINOs in the kS House but more importantly, we replaced 8 out of the 9 KS RINO Senators, that and with electing Brownback as Governor, KS is on the move!
That’s good to hear because I’m actually hoping to move there soon.
I would buy a Tavor in a heartbeat!
Well, I guess it's one way to start the violent revolution...
I heard the small influx of displaced Katrina refugees has already caused big problems in Texas.
Do you really want to see what happens to a state with a “full house” of all of the above?
Look at Florida, south of Okeechobee...
Why not leave a one person office open in MD. No exit tax...
Would not be an issue if you hired nice conservative Texans...
Don’t threaten anything, just leave. Give your employees a little severance and then, Bye Bye. But leave a note, telling everyone why.

Move to Cheyenne, WY. Under three hours
drive to Denver airport. Highway 80 and rail goes through town.
Help employees relocate.
Well, the 'invasion' is strongly peppered with honest conservatives. I 'invaded' Texas from California myself, seven years ago. If there's gonna be a revolution here, it'll be the good kind.
Money quote: There always seems to be a problem with Maryland.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
As a conservative, I hope to be invading Texas or some other red state some time in the future.
Better make it the near future, before real battle lines are drawn. The divisions between the left and right in this country are getting deeper by the day.
Screw anyone politician who thinks that he or she can dictate to the American people what they can or cannot use to defend themselves!!
In Indiana, football fields are merely a place to congregate, drink beer, and talk about the upcoming basketball season.
Okay. We’ll settle it on the court. Thunder vs whoever you got.
Well, until last night I figured the IU Hoosiers could beat about anybody. In a head to head matchup now, I would probably pick the Indianapolis School for the Blind.
Then Oklahoma ought to be advertising that fact to workforce centers, technical schools, career counselors, military outplacement and unemployment officials in Michigan, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Florida, etc., etc... I was a veterans career specialist in Iowa for 15 years and if I had somewhere to send my unemployed machinists I’d have jumped on it.
