If you haven’t heard by now, there is a rumor spreading through conservative circles, that Obama is planning a martial law takeover of Texas. It is so widespread, that a courthouse in Bastrop County even held a meeting on the matter, and a representative of the US Army even attended to try and calm any fears that people might have.
