All right, I didn't think it through. I couldn't count things like San Antonio and Austin 'cause they don't leave Texas, but I forgot there's a few good people from there.

Asian countries such as Japan, Korea, and China, would dominate cheerleading if it ever became an Olympic event.

Don't be too sure on that, Sam Houston called the leaders of the state, who wanted to secede during the Civil War, traitors. He pointed out the US saved Texas, bailing them out and allowing them entry into the US to access her greater resources when the state was going under. In return they censured him. Like Sam, hate cheerleading.

Now the state is the cheerleading capital of the country. They teach courses in it in middle and high school. Pathetic.

Molly!

It's tough down here right now. Lot of wacka doodlery. I know rational adults who think that 2.5 million votes don't matter. I know people who want Trump to become a dictator and install a fascist government. I'm not kidding, they literally say that. And they ain't alt right doodles. They're people who I previously thought very highly of. It's a very strange reality down here right now.

Is that because of the Kung Fu gymnastics tradition, or because they're actually into cheerleading? I will tell you that the kids in the Kung Fu temple my son goes to can do things I've seen very few high school cheerleaders do. But the emphasis is very different.

I don't know what San Antonio you hang in, but it's the one major city in this state that is still very Red. Houston and Dallas are Blue.

Honestly dont know why. Possibly the strong tradition of martial and performing arts you mentioned. Cheerleading touches on that, yet offers kids an alternative way to participate, while being acceptable to parents. There is a strong conformity aspect to it.

Didn't some cheerleader's mom hire (or, try to hire) a hit man to kill the mother of her daughter's cheerleading rival a while back in Texas?
