Can you secede from the US (let alone Texas) and establish a new nation if you don’t know your own address? Dougie Doug’s takeaway from this little episode should be that instead of notifying the local po-lice of your intention to create your own sovereign Republic of Dougistan (while letting them know you’re holding an indeterminate number of firearms), the proper procedure is to send a certified letter to the State Department. Duh. Oh, and Dougie? Shooting at police officers and firemen typically results in rapid, extensive blood loss, so consider yourself lucky to only be facing charges of aggravated assault. You can wave goodbye to those guns, too, because you’ve seen the last of them.

Dave wins the internet for today!!! hahahaha
Doug is one scary dude!
If I were to declare my property as an independent nation I would send a certified letter to the state department and grant myself diplomatic immunity so that I would be able to legally carry everywhere as a foreign diplomat.
Jesus tap dancing Christ… the antis are going to have a field day with this.
It really changes nothing. Read up on some “alternative viewpoint” websites and there really is no change in the amount of hate (its always alot) flung at those who refuse to embrace Obama’s dreams. Plus its been buried by St. Louis’s police force being relieved of duty by the state police for being incompetent thugs.
Sounds like he may be mentally ill, in which case this is very sad all around.
Mentally ill or brain fried from drug use.. either way, he’s not firing on all cylinders!
He sounds like most of the anti’s to me. Crazy as 6 monkeys trying to reproduce with a football.
Takes balls though.
This guy needs some time in a locked rubber room. IMHO. 🙂
dougie just took the state’s rights argument to the nth degree.
Citizenship is a two-way street. We trade our natural individual sovereignty and in return we are supposed to be protected under a set of Constitutional laws. It’s like a marriage contract where one party, in this case the feds, has forgotten all about its vows, has been whoring around town, and stealing from the family piggy bank.
LOL …. True, but LOL.
Very eloquently put.
Dougistan… I would have come up with a more elegant name. Perhaps Dougtopia. Dougland.
Doug’s Place. Sovereign nation with the feel of a friendly local tavern.
wow think you need to put in for Dougistan’s department of tourism.
Make the national motto,”Happy Hour” and watch the tourists line up to cross the border.
Douglasville! Oh…that one is taken?
Douglonian Federal Federation. Charge a tariff for imported utilities and declare Michelle Obama to be the national mascot, the wookie monster. Al pictures must show her as having blue skin and her animal cry is “WOOOOOOOKIEEEEE NOM NOM NOM”
Dougtopia – ha!
I wouldn’t think small like this. Go big or go home, go with The “Douganese Empire” After you claim your neighbors swimming pool as territorial waters.
“The Republic of Doug” has a nice “Fallout 3” feel to it.
Only a matter of time before it fights the Republic of Dave. Because war, war never changes.
There are just no words in the English or any other language, or any combination therein, that could ever adequately describe this kind of stupidity.
Hopefully this will be a good starting point:
“Your republic is forfeit. Prepare to be reclaimed by the State.”
I can’t help but think that it’s a shame he didn’t get a chance to issue postage stamps. Think of their value as collector’s items.
According to the residents, Earth is at least fifty times the size of a model globe.
Actually, I’m OK with the intention, it’s just something in the implementation where the idea needs some work.
Like when I decided to declare myself king and marry Jenifer Aniston. Sound idea, poor implementation.
She’s perfect ex-wife material IMHO:
An obviously photo-shopped image.
If he’d buddied up with Putin, he might actually have had a shot at making this thing work.
Yeah, he could get some spetznatz to pose as pro Douganian rebels and maybe a Chinese Navy incursion for territorial oil drilling rights.
What kind of dingbat thinks they’re going to be able to stage an armed rebellion against the state, especially Texas, by themselves? Besides, he ignored all the normal paperwork first, and skipped right to armed secession. Obviously he had no clue what he was doing.
See? That’s where I failed too!
So, I guess my Republic of Dougistan travel visa won’t be forthcoming after all. The cruise tickets are probably worthless now too! Bummer.
Dougistan shares a common border with Wackistan, Bipolistan and Schizophrenistan. I looked it up!
It also receives most of its trade from drunkopia so perhaps if we impose a sanction on trade there we could get him to concede.
I think this guy spent too much time playing Fallout 3 and has confused himself with Dave of the Republic of Dave.
Came here to post the same thing lol
You’re not the only one.
Takes ball? Everything is normal in the lone star state of R Perry
This guy is about 52 cards short of a full deck!
A couple fries short of a happy meal.
One tree short of a hammock.
One leg short in a Texas Two Step dance…
Keep her goin lads and laddies!
Crazier than a sh*thouse rat.
Nuttier than squirrel sh*t .
Squirrelier than owl crap.
One slice short of a sandwich.
(A South/East-London term).
That boy’s about as bright as a half-watt bulb.
He’s as sharp as a Q-Tip.
The lights are on but nobody’s home.
The elevator don’t go to the top floor.
Not the sharpest ship in the chandelier…
Crazier than a syphilitic bedbug.
2 of my favorites. From Foghorn Leghorn. The chicken, not the blogger.
“That boy’s got more nerve than a bum tooth.”
“That boy’s as sharp as a bowling ball.”
My name is DougieR and I approved this message!
He should have read ” The Mouse That Roared”.
The “Q” bomb was a dud…
“[…]the proper procedure is to send a certified letter to the State Department.”
I’m inclined to agree. When in the course of human events and all that, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. Well.
All I’m hearing out of Doug E. Doug, or whomever, is that more people should vote. I’ve seen the outcome of people’s voting of late and I’m not all that impressed, let alone convinced that more of it is the answer.
But good luck with all that.
Sounds like the Republic of Dave in Fallout:new Vegas – and we all know how that turns out… adios amigo.
Actually, that was Fallout 3.
But I thought the same exact thing…
Sounds like a great chance for OCT to do a rifle-walk through town!
Umm, Paul, I think you’re some what OCD about the OCT ( open carry thing). There is medication for that.
More info, including transcript here; “‘He had actually left with an AK-47 assault rifle, several rounds of ammunition and some propane tanks from the garage,’ Assistant Chief Greg Wilkerson said.”
Real Texans don’t use propane. It’s charcoal or nothing.
Unless your name is Hank Hill, and you live in Arlen…
Even for home heating…?
Dougie for President! Oh wait, he already is I guess. 🙂
I do believe alcohol may have been involved in the creation of this republic.
In point of fact, it does not take “all kinds” to make a world. Unfortunately, we would appear to have them anyway.
The guy talking to Doug had to have thought he was being punk’d.
Soooo, he creates his own separate country, but still expects the U.S. to provide emergency services? So much for being a sovereign state.
His wouldn’t have been the first nation with its hand out for American taxpayer funded services. Sadly, given a few months he might have scored.
*sigh* This is like a bad joke.
I imagine some sort of parody of this will be made in a movie in the future.
All hail the Great and Honorable King Dougie Doug, First of His Name: Blessed Be.
That went as well as when that guy in Rhode Island tried to create the country of Petoria…
That’s all he got charged with? Musta been a mighty poor shot.
This is a nice wrap up with a little depth: http://springtimeofnations.blogspot.com/2014/08/texan-pissed-off-at-america-for.html
