slaves in Texas
You are right and you are wrong.
As a religious person AND a progressive, I am
disgusted, mortified by this Eldorado Fundamentalist
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Compound in
West Texas. Lots of people feel that way.
...remember Hillary won the primary out here!
I am a Texan. I am a West Texan. I am embarrassed
by yet another fine example of craziness coming out
of this part of the country. I can tell you that
the idiots who are in power out here...based in Austin....are
conservative far right Republicans. They are
not even the usual normal fiscal conservative Republicans.
They are far right religious right wackos.
Combine the crazies with the fiscal conservativism
and you get this kind of crap.
They talk about religious family values and they
don't want the "liberal gub'ment sticken its nose" in their business.
They don't regulate or question homeschoolers.
Yet they regulate to death public education in order to strangle it.
They claim they have family values yet they slash
funding for Child Protective Services and tie their hands so that
CPS can hardly do their job.
They are rewriting state English/Literature curriculum
using right wing religious organizations rather than educators
with college degrees. They are about to rewrite
science curriculum using preachers rather than scientists.
Sure....these men can get away with it in West
Texas because a person can disappear out here. This is what
happens when people simply can't be bothered.
Thank God somebody finally paid attention.
But I can tell you, there are a LOT of us here
in Texas who are fed up with this kind of perversion of religion.
We are fed up with the idiot far right leaders
ignoring their job while lining their pockets for their own benefit.
I'm sure Gov. Rick Perry's relatives probably
benefited from selling the building materials for that Eldorado
Compound. That's how things have been done down
here for too long.
I am ashamed that Texas has given this country
George Bush, David Koresh, and Eldorado, Texas.
I and Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks aren't
the only ones.
