Come on, City of Austin. Just like your namesake, you're surrounded by the enemy, about to be put to death by violent hordes closing on you holy place of refuge.

Your only hope lies in whores. Send them out among your enemy and let them seduce your leaders. It's your only hope.

Gotta remember about all these "deeply red" southern states; they're usually only 60 percent Republican. And most of the money (and Democratic) centers are the big cities. Good luck operating your conservative utopia without any major cities and their tax base and infrastructures.

Austin is the way it is because the rest of Texas surrounding it. Take Austin out of Texas and you will have the equivelant of Lafayette, IN or Ames, IA, with a few more hookers.

GGracie: Keep Austin Wierd

I'd sign this petition but I'm not a citizen of Austin or Texas.

/Loved that place back when I was stationed at Bergstrom AFB.
