HAHA! I love this state ya'll. I am sure it is because they think Jefferson had a few illegitimate children with one of his slaves, but that's
Texas for you, bash the gays and interracial couples. People in the cities of Texas don't really do this, it is the people out in the pastures and
small towns that have zero common sense, intelligence, or independent thought.
The Monticello was Jefferson's estate so it is a little bias.
I was privileged enough to go to a decent public school in Texas. They never once mentioned religion or any of that nonsense.
I do remember we had a semester a year of class dedicated to 'Texas History,' which revolved around Sam Houston, James Bowie(Bowie Knife), William
B. Travis, General Santa Anna(Evil), Stephen F. Austin, and the Alamo(REMEMBER THE ALAMO).
Every Texan that went to public school can tell you more about the history of Texas than anything else. More than U.S. history, church, and football
combined! What a waste!
Did you know Texas is the only state that can raise its flag to the same height as the U.S. flag? It is because we were once our own country. It is
also a law for us to balance our budget every year, something I think the U.S. should consider.
OH man, I forgot Davey Crockett! Coonskin hat and all.
