Resident Tuition in Texas

Apparently some people have bought into this notion (lie), citizens from other states cannot qualify for resident tuition rates in Texas. This is how stupid the argument has become.

Well they're wrong.

You get it this is about paying taxes here, right? Taxes that support schools. Like, oh I don't know, sales taxes for example. Which every slob here pays.

Option 1, for high school students:

1.Graduate from a Texas high school or receive a GED in Texas; and
2.Live in Texas for the 36 months immediately before high school graduation; and
3.Live in Texas for the 12 months immediately before the census date (usually the 12th class day) of the semester in which you enroll at UT Austin (or another college or university).

Option 2, live here for a year.

1.Live in Texas for 12 consecutive months; and
2.Establish and maintain domicile for 12 consecutive months by doing one (emphasis me) of the following:
■ Be gainfully employed in Texas (Student jobs do not qualify as gainful employment.)
■ Sole or joint marital ownership of residential real property in Texas by the person seeking to enroll or the dependent’s parent, having established and maintained a domicile at the residence
■ Own and operate a business in Texas
■ Be married for one year to a person who has established domicile in Texas

Regardless of how you feel about the extension of this benefit to the kids of illegals, can we at least acknowledge the benefit isn't extended to them and denied to US citizens?

Also, here's a stupid music video. Hayseed Dixie's Bohemian Rhapsody.

We can't be all serial, all the time.

Well, I can't.
