    Since its in texas shouldn't they be paying someone to take it?

    Seriously, though, if I had the money I would buy it, turn the whole town into a strip club/massage parlor, open a school for delinquint teenage girls, go back to dirt roads, declare myself sheriff and rename the town to "go **** yourself" Dreams can come true

    As owner of this fine "town, my first order would be to re-properify the pronunciation from "Al-Bert," to "Al-Bear."

    All land thieves, Cajuns, and people from Tennessee need to quit making fun of my state. You won't like me when I'm angry.

    They have an add first, then the story.

    Now had I the $1.1 million to buy that town, I'd consider it. But the title of mayor would be replaced with Baron, and the office occupied by me. And the town Sheriff would be some crony of mine who wanted to wear a gun and a badge. Ofcourse the main economy would be importing Mexicans.

    I don't see any cactus or longhorns. How can they expect to pawn that off without some real Texas icons on the property?

    That would be an interesting development. Declare it sovereign territory and set up a big casino, tax free gas and cigarettes...drain the gringoes dry.

    Can that be done anymore, setting up a sovereign nation inside an already existing US?

    I'm personally hoping to live to see the day when someone skirts the rules and builds a city that hovers in the air

    I think that might result in a war with most of the Indian tribes who have something of a monopoly on that sort of operation…





    I never got the video link but I did find the town…

    The video news story said the population was 4 (or 5?) so I doubt "them gals" go with the place. However, Albert seems a happenin' place with the dance hall and ice house, so they probably frequent Albert - along with those bikers...

    So I guess it might not be a bad idea to keep a 12 gage double barrel loaded with two rolls of dimes, just in case one of ‘em asks for a refund?

    Don't worry, when I buy Albert (Soon to be pronounced Albear, just like my cousin Albert... who has a brother named Clebert [pronounced Clay-bear]), There will be women, wine, and song a plenty.

    What exactly does owning a town mean in the United States (or specifically, Texas).

    One assumes that country, still suffering from a surfeit of revolutionary ideals, would not grant true ownership of the land and peons thereupon, with full feudal rights and privileges?

    In other words, why would one bother?

    Don't ask questions BG, just make some assumptions about how cool owning a town is and cough up the cash.

    delusions of grandeur. I guess even 300 years of emigration can't change that.
