FormlessOne: Zeppelininthesky: We are not all racist asshole morons in Texas.

However, you're being represented by one, and that person was voted into office by the majority of Texans. I'd remind that person that, perhaps, being a racist asshole isn't an appropriate representation of Texans.


Um, no. The person in the article is a state representative who was voted in by 43000 republicans in northern Harris county. There are many Texans who are represented at the state and national level by democrats.

From the end of the article...Where did this idea come from that everybody deserves free education, free medical care, free whatever?

"Free medical care" isn't that in the bible? You know, the whole take care of those who are sick part? I'm sure the priests have mentioned that a time a or two in my church.

You think representatives are elected by getting a majority of state residents to vote for them?

NeverDrunk23: Crap like this makes me wonder about the people claiming that Texas will go blue in 10 years.


Racists like her still exist, but they are quickly being outnumbered by not only non-racists, but more siginificantly a fast growing minority population. Unless the Republicans can do a face heel turn on immigration and make more of an effort to appeal to minorities than getting a tan, they will lose tihs state

/FWIW this coont has also said "Where did this idea come from that everybody deserves free education, free medical care, free whatever? It comes from Moscow, from Russia. It comes straight out of the pit of hell. And it's cleverly disguised as having a tender heart. It's not a tender heart. It's ripping the heart out of this country"
//she also went onto CNN to claim that middle eastern women were making "terror babies" by coming the US to have birth then take them back home to raise them as terrorists with US citizenship.

I'm guessing he's "dual". Not that I give a fark, there are plenty of so-called "Americans" that need to be dumped elsewhere.

Stile4aly: thurstonxhowell: KingPsyz: But don't you dare call them racist

Please don't. The ensuing argument about the semantics of using the word "racist" to describe someone who is anti-Muslim is just about the most annoying thing on the internet.

How about prejudiced small-minded cockbags. Does that work better for you?


Works just fine. I would have also accepted "pieces of shiat", "human garbage", or "Nickelback fans". Really, anything negative that won't trigger that farking argument.

Yeah, its a long battle that can be frustratingly slow. But the tide is turning. Hell, the fact that we can talk about Texas turning liberal is progress in and of itself

Sorry, I meant to specify state-wide elected office, like Governor, Attorney General, judges, etc.

If you live in Texas, you DESERVE this. You DESERVE to live with idiots. It's like going to Disneyland and complaining there's kids.

Like Christian Evangelicals, you don't choose the best representatives then.


Who the fark does?

She tells it like it is and I love her for it.

Hating immigrants, Gays, Mooslims, the president and birth control ...well that is a patriotic fight against Communism.

How can you call me racist for hating Communism? Did you miss the 60's?

/unbeatable logic!

A friend of mine who is of Mexican descent had a judge in divorce court threaten to deport him. He asked the judge, "To where? Ashland Oregon?"

While that is true for statewide offices, the person mentioned in the article does not hold a statewide office. The person I originally responded does not seem to understand the difference between state and national office, nor do they seem to understand what districts are. In addition to the state representatives already mentioned by ATRDCI, 9 of the 32 current US house districts for Texas are represented by democrats.

Perhaps you missed when she suggested mandatory readings from the book of Proverbs in public schools.

Of course, the ratio of Democrats to Republicans in the state legislature at the moment has little to do with how Texan demographics are shifting, so that whole argument is a red herring.

When I lived in Texas, I lived in a Democratic district lovingly carved out by gerrymandering craftsmen (mostly so that my vote wouldn't endanger any sitting Republicans). I can't think of any recent local elections in which the Republican candidate received more than 10% of the vote.

During the last competitive Houston mayoral election, the Republican finished fourth.

Picking out idiot politicians, like the one in TFA, is easy, but they aren't the only ones around.

/Then again, I left America's Texas for Canada's Texas, so maybe I'm biased.

SunsetLament: QUESTION: Why would it be hard for an American citizen born in Pakistan to enter Afghanistan?

I'm an American citizen born in Texas and I'm fairly certain I could enter Afghanistan within the week if I really wanted to. It's not like they have border security.


My first thought is: OK, please feel free. I'll help pay for your airfare to Islamabad and you can walk the rest of the way. I hear the Tribal Areas are a fun-filled wonderland for Westerners. Make sure you wear a cowboy hat so you can make many new friends.

We hope whatever happens, happens on film and is not...unamusing. Aloha!

"Go educated yourself, if yall have real guts."
