Wow!!

The Texas Navy.



As many know, we here in Texas have a border problem. Lake Falcon is a lake that

borders Texas and Mexico . Last year several boaters were killed by drug cartel folks

from the other side. We are now aware that the automatic weapons used in the killings

were probably from "Fast and Furious". When Texas joined the Union as a sovereign

nation in 1836 we retained the right to have a Navy to ward off the Mexicans since the

United States refused to protect us. This is our first Naval vessel of this century, small

but potent. It will soon be safe to fish and boat on the Lake Falcon this summer. Just

about every Texan is be prepared to be in a gun fight, and you can't have enough guns.

You might not believe this, but the Texas Navy is nothing special. The Ohio State Navy maintains a cutter for patrolling off the shore of Camp Perry to keep boaters out the danger zone. New York has a naval militia, (headed by a New York State Naval Militia Marine General no less) that is very active with the USCG in port security ops. Last but not least, South Carolina, yup us, has a state naval militia, http://sc-navalmilitia.org/ . Granted theres no contact info, But by god we got us a Rear Admiral! I wonder if its all chiefs and no indians. That would explain the lack of watercraft.
