I eagerly await the next episode in the thrilling melodrama, “Gold Heist by Texans.”

Texans in boots, suits and cowboy hats, pistols in pockets and AK-47s in hand, head for New York to liberate Texas gold from those blue northerners and bring it home where it belongs. Then these Texas patriots will put it safely away in Texas and invite others in the U.S. and around the world to store their gold here just as we store nuclear waste.

We’ll outsource the security of gold storage, just as we do the waste, and keep both real safe.

Then will Texas secede from the Union? Will we elect Rick Perry as Texas president because he can’t win all of the 50 states? Will Texas become an offshore illicit gold and money haven for the rich around the world? Will Texas next liberate water from other states and Mexico?

Stay tuned.
