God was missing for six days.

Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth.

"For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, pointed to a land area & said, "What's that?"

"That's the State of Texas , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful rivers,mountains, streams, lakes, forests, hills, beaches and plains.

"The people from the State of Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "There's Washington DC . Wait till you see the idiots I put there. ”

ADDENDUM: For a really good look at the provisions of the proposed health care legislation, visit Tom's Place and scoll down. This is neither made up stuff, nor is it is simply what the bill says and direct references to the pages and paragraphs. It's even better than the synopsis I gave a few posts ago.

My wife and I sat and read that together. Her family is from Texas. We loved it.

What a great, and true, post. As a Texan, I second that emotion.

Great one! I thought I'd heard *all* the Texas stories. My husband is from Texas; he will love it though I won't be able to share it with him till tomorrow as he is away from home on!
