Texas entry requirements

J.D., over at Mouth of the Brazos, has a cool idea to help winnow out some of these refugees from the Democrat economy who keep flooding into Texas—especially, for me, the Californicators:

“I have been daydreaming lately about mandatory criteria to move to Texas. I would welcome any additions to my nascent list.

“1. Watch or read the mini-series or book series of Lonesome Dove. Written, closed-book, exams will be done at the driver’s license bureau. If you make less than 50% on the quiz – no license.”

My suggested “No. 2. Explain the history of the Revolution, especially the timeline of the Alamo and Travis’s letters, and have the Victory or Death one memorized. Extra points for timelines of Goliad and San Jacinto. Less than 80% – no license.”

Any other suggestions out there?

UPDATE:  Here’s one newcomer who can skip these requirements. Considering that Toyota is bringing its own jobs along.

  1. I would have thought there would be more ideas, Dick. Here’s one more: you are required to have a job BEFORE you move here.

  2. I think that’s probably a given, Texas welfare being so puny, but it would be wise just to be sure. ;-).

  3. Who is the town of Leander named after? What was the most common job in Terlingua?

  4. Hm, those are pretty obscure, but they can be Googled. Likewise the Leanderthal Lady.

  5. Actually I believe Leander and “Lonesome Dove” have a connection though tenuous.

  6. And scrap vegans, Wiccans and similar too.

  7. So what, opens a room for exchange 😉
