One day, behind the Orange Curtain, in the socialist controlled City of Austin, a very gentle and refined conservative Texas lady was driving across the Colorado River bridge just east of the Marshal Ford Dam. As she neared the top of the bridge, she saw a young man fixin’ to jump off the rail of the new bridge to his death hundreds of feet below into the river bed. (BTW "fixin" in Texas means: has the means or abilities to take action)
She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, "Please don't jump! Think of your dear mother and father." He replied, "My mom and dad are both dead; victims of the greed created by the capitalist system. I'm going to jump."
She said, "Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children."
He replied, "I'm not married, and I don't have any kids."
She said, "Well, then remember the Alamo and those who fought for the Republic of Texas back in 1836."
He replied, ''What's the Alamo ?''
She replied, ‘’Well, bless your heart! - You just go ahead and jump.. you little Yankee carpet bag socialist! You’re holding up traffic”.
Now don't you just love Texas and Texans, I certainly do!
PS - For those of you who may be worried, no non-human animals, fish or endangered species were harmed by the tragic suicide depicted in this fictitious story.
