Rational Response Squad: Texas

As of right now I can't say that I would be able to run a branch here, but I thought I might get the ball rolling on people that would want to be involved.

I am still young, lacking education, but not foolish enough to ignore the PR side of an organization and ideas of leadership. Not only that but I will probably be too busy with schooling, making money, and side projects for at least three years.

However I know Texas is a big place and really the best place to try to set up the org is where the people are. I would much rather have five hardcore people set up something in Austin or Dallas then try to set something up in Houston with a buddy or two. Also I haven't exactly put down roots yet so I would be more then willing to move to another town for this kind of project.

If all that is done right now is sparking people's interest in the idea and maybe talking about it that is a good start.

If you have any ideas, questions, comments, suggestions, or just like this idea post something here or contact me anyway you might feel like. Click my picture for options on that and don't be shy.

Also, by all means, if you are a person in the position with the will to start the org now I will be behind you 210%.

I'm in north Dallas right

I'm in north Dallas right now at the University of Texas-Dallas.  However, I'll be moving in July to just south of Austin - I'll be living in San Marcos and attending Texas State University.  Grad work and a job will take up most of my time but I'd be willing to see what I can do to help out.

Just one more piping up.

Another guy chiming in from Texas. I live in the DFW area (west Ft Worth). I just moved over here from the South mid-cities area.

My activism has been significantly curtainled lately due to the move.  I plan to turn that around in the near future.

My name is Reno and I'm

My name is Reno and I'm based in Screwston, TX.  I have connections throughtout the City as well as neighboring cities, and would be more than happy to share the influence.  Maybe at one point or another, we can get the ball rolling.

If we're not supposed to eat the flesh of children, then why is it so delicious?

On an unrelated note

On an unrelated note regarding Texas. I wrote a parody of "Walker Texas Ranger".

In the eyes of a Fundy

The unsuspecting apostate

Had better know the truth of Jebus

 

Cause the eyes of a fundy are upon you

Any quetioning he's going to see

When you're in Texas look behind you

Cause that's where the fundy is gonna be 

"We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and nonbelievers."Obama

Sorry I'm late folks!  

Sorry I'm late folks!   Has the party started yet?

I'm in Frisco, just north of Dallas.  Or, more  accurately, just north of Plano which is just north of Richardson which is just north of Dallas.

Let's do it!
