    Everything you say is very close with the exception of it not Mexico asking for migration but the Catholic Church. Most indian nations would recognise the clergy until they recognised the "offer you cannot refuse" nature of the church in the new world. The indian nations of what became the ROT would kill the on sight and for good reason. It is a facinating time in the history of the south west. If one doubts the cburch look no further than Bill Clinton. The church came forward with the declration that any member of congress who voted in favor of any bill that might include abortion/reproductive rights would be denied holy communion. Do as we say or we damn your mortal soul

    The native Indians definetly took a screwing. There is a story of Sam Houston signing a kill on sight order of the Karawanka indians. The Indians of the area were probably the finest light calvery the world has ever known.

    It is correct groups of the settlers did come from the young United States via the French held Louisiana territory. The idea they migrated in support of the US for the purpose of an eventual annexation of what became the Republic of Texas has no basis in fact. The actual facts we have available to us support the opposite conclusion. If we look at the western migration post 1803 (Louisiana Purchase) the majority of settlers had no connection to the US nor did they want one. The census information we have available from the time comes from Catholic church records located at the Archdiocese in San Antonio. If we believe those records the majority of the settlers came west through the Louisiana territory with zero connection to the US. German and French (the majority of the French migrated into the French territory of Canada) populations who had never set foot on US soil along with what today would be referred to as expat former citizens of a still young US.

    Plenty of both surrounding the story of the forming of the ROT. The line at the end of the movie The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance probably sums it up perfectly. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend. Quite possible though I know of no documentation to support your theory. Plenty of facts, stories, legends, and outright lies surrounding the time period to keep historians busy for decades. Oh wait, It already has.

    Might wish to reread the chapter on Texas history. Texas won her independence from Mexico in 1836 to become the Republic of Texas. She did not become a state until 1846. The 1846 agreement included a provision for Texas to leave the Union to become five individual states to reform the Republic of Texas as a soverign nation. Texas leaving the US has been argued many times normally ending in a legal quandry. If put before the voters #texit would pass resulting in a never ending legal shit fight. One side would argue the reconstruction agreement signed at the end of the Civil War makes the 1846 agreement void while the ROT side would claim (and rightly so) any contract signed at gunpoint is invalid. Either way it would make for great political theatre watching it play out.

    Kill everyone then strip the bodies plus the boat of anything of value before sending the lot to Davy Jones locker?

    Wow Scooter. Don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel

    Not to mention the camera and battery pack used to shoot the video. Compared to some of the environmental devistation in China due to the processing of Lithium for batteries my 20 year old pick-up is positively green.

    How long does it take to build a facility of this type? Only thing I have seen that would be close is electronics manufacturing. For semiconductors there is no way a facility started in April could be up and running by now. For the 20,000 square foot facility it took five months to install and certify the ventilation systems alone. I have no idea how that might compare to a sterile facility to manufacture vaccines.

    Good luck to both of you. I would be very interested in knowing, if after being vaccinated, do you then test positive using a standard quick test.

    Making sense of everything going on right now is not always an easy thing to do. Doing scooter repair is not my real job. My business builds battery packs. An old friend and his wife operate a home health agency who one morning found themselves without their repair guy because he is convinced he is going to die being out in public all day every day. My friends knew I could do the job and asked me if I could fill in. I would prefer to be running my own company but someone has to make sure the clients are able to maintain their mobility. First thing I do is get a temp on the client. If it is elevated I call the office so they can immediately send a nurse to do a proper wellness check. One little guy was at 100 degrees due to a raging uti. One lady had covid. I never know what I am walking into but I still walk in very time. If there is ever doubt or known exposure I get tested and self quarantine until the results are back. Is UTMB using me as a guinea pig to collect data points? Sure they are. As you pointed out there are cases where people who have had covid get it again. 14 months post infection I have not been reinfected so they would like to know what is different in my case so I continue to donate plasma for research. For all I know my donations have helped make a vaccine possible. We all hope the vaccine is safe. I wish you the best and hope there are no ill effects but should side effects become evident health care workers are in an environment where constant monitoring is possible.
