So basically a texan is saying he needs more money so he can effectively fight off a UN force that will likely involve some combination of Belgians, Norwegians and maybe a few guys from Ghana.

For shame USA, for shame.

Let's just say that Lubbock is in Texas known to be the home of some more than mildly eccentric people.

My deductive reasoning is twitching again. Let say the US does decide to bring in the UN to attack...Why the hell would anyone want to attack Lubbock? Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, or shoot, maybe even the larger Amarillo, but armpit to nowhere, Lubbock?

Me thinks these nutbags think of themselves too highly.

C'mon, it's obvious. Lubbock has three airports that will be needed by UN forces for strikes against nearby Roswell. The proliferation of Alien technology at Roswell will require a sizable force build up and the UN has to know that Lubbock is a perfect location as a mustering point. Duh.

You underestimate the attraction of the Buddy Holly Museum. Lubbock is priority one!

Unfortunately, taking up arms would be the next 'logical' step for these nutjobs.

That reminds me, have they put out a trailer for the new one? I'll have to go check.

EDIT: Found it:

Ya know, I just don't buy the Koreans being able to launch a successful invasion of us. They did in the game Homefront which came out last year, and it just seems so silly. The chinks, sure. They'll be coming for big fat checks considering what we owe 'em. But the Koreans? It just doesn't follow.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

Ever since the Soviet Union fell we have been on a quest for a replacement enemy. So far no one can compare to the Russians, Germans, or British, so the quest will continue. At least it led to some cool stuff.

I think that judge said somwhere that he believed Obama was an alien who is leading the vanguard of an invasion force from Alpha Centauri, and invasion force that will be disguised as "UN" troops, though their third eyes and green skin is likely to give them away. Or at least, that's what I thought I heard that judge say.

The sooner we wipe Lubbock from the face of the earth, the sooner we can start forgetting it ever existed.
