If you can’t march into a persons home and arrest them you can pass many laws for the good of them and their children in hopes that they break them. You can raise taxes on everything they use and do so as to stymie their endeavors to educate themselves to what your alternate goal is. You can wait decades for this to happen.

In Texas our legislature meets only every other year for ? months. They are also (state)constitutionally limited on their spending. They have to balance the budget. These limits make the state government much more tolerable.

They had me right up to that part about the feral hogs. Now that shit just ain’t civilized. I’m not sure how.
As a born n raised Kaintuckian, messin with bacon will not stand! Growin up there I never met a police man who would not welcome a mason jar of popskull or a slab of smoked bacon, flavored w a diet of hickory, beechnut, walnut and wild persimmons……….(…a neighbor kid told me once that for Headcheese, the police let em ride an turn on the siren…..)

^ See? Now that’s some good-’ole-fashioned Kaintuckian wisdom. I’m not sure what it means, but I like the sound of it.
