If At First You Don't Secede . . . (Part II)

I previously discussed the buzz surrounding Texas Governor Rick Perry's nod to the possibility that Texas could re-secede from the Union here

The Lone Star Looney has apparently touched a nerve: a number of state legislators have started to push "state's rights" resolutions asserting various powers under the Tenth Amendment. One list of the resolutions is collected by the "Tenth Amendment Center"

Gee, I wonder what is motivating these "conservative" legislators to pound their chests and bellow out their "state's rights" resolutions? It wouldn't be the fact that the President of the United States is . . . . well, you know, he's at least half . . . . um, yes. I don't think his race is a coincidence, do you?

But we don't need to send the Union Army (1861) or the National Guard (1962) to stop the re-secession crisis. All we need is for the United States Congress to pass the following legislation:

"No post-secondary educational institution shall be eligible to participate in NCAA Championship play in any sport, unless that institution is located in the United States of America."

I bet that stops Georgia, Texas, and yes, Mississippi from talking this nonsense.
