I think Texas should secede and take all the tea baggers with it. We could have a third world Klingon state as a neighbor. I think a 20 foot wall surrounding Texas would be a good start. Something along the lines of Israel's "security" walls around the open prison we still call "Palestine".

Calls to abuse hot lines and shelters are up in Texas

FORT WORTH -- Calls to SafeHaven of Tarrant County, where people seek refuge from dangerous relationships, increased 117 percent from 2007 to 2009.

But it's not just the number of calls that concern SafeHaven workers.

"We've had some instances of the abuser finding out that his victim is seeking our services and passed on veiled threats to our staff," President Mary Lee Hafley said.

The viciousness of some abusers' threats and their willingness to attack those trying to help abused women and families keep Hafley up at night, she said.
