Texas Impressions

Online comments in response to recent editorials and articles about highly publicized events make it difficult to debunk the ill-conceived impression that all Texans are inbred illiterates, with three teeth and third-grade educations.

We managed to advance our smarts percentage a notch or two. One hundred and twenty days into his first term, Gov Abbott managed to do the impossible; make Rick Perry look somewhat intelligent.

Abbott is trotting out the guard to monitor military joint training exercises in Texas. Perry told reporters before a luncheon for the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, “I think it’s OK to question your government — I do it on a pretty regular basis. The military’s something else.”

Chuck Norris, better known as Walker, Texas Ranger, is not Texan. He’s from OKLAHOMA. He campaigned for Governor Abbott and was compelled to join the Jade Helm 15 fustercluck. “Concerned Texans and Americans are in no way calling into question our brave and courageous men and women in uniform. They are merely following orders. What’s under question are those who are pulling the strings at the top of Jade Helm 15 back in Washington. The US government says, ‘It’s just a training exercise.’ But I’m not sure the term ‘just’ has any reference to reality when the government uses it.”

We have had military training exercises in Texas since God was a boy. Thus far, the feds have not confiscated clubs, bow and arrows, Bowie knives or rifles. The rumors were so pervasive Walmart had to issue a statement denying a conspiracy theory that the military had created a system of underground tunnels below closed Walmart outlets. Considering some of the photos of people O’Walmart, underground tunnels might not be a bad idea for all of the locations.

Texas has become fertile ground for every loony conspiracy advocate as evidenced by attendees at the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Founder/hate monger Pam Geller is from New York. The keynote speaker Geert Wilders is from the Netherlands.

We do not require outside assistance to promote lunacy. We’ve got our own set of homegrown intelligence challenged folks.

  • The Open Carry idjits defy description (see first paragraph).
  • Ted Cruz is Texas’ McCarthy wannabe. Ted may have some ‘splainin’ to do to his wing nut constituents. His Dallas campaign office neighborhood is located in a neighborhood renovated back in the 70’s and 80’s primarily by the gay community who populate most of the area.
  • Matt Schaefer, Texas Republican Lawmaker Wants Women To Carry Nonviable/Deceased Fetuses To Full Term. Ignoring the fact that a deceased fetus could have the potential to be unsafe for the health of the woman, Schaefer replied, “That’s part of the human condition when sin entered the world, and it grieves us all.”

A small amount of lithium occurs naturally in El Paso, Texas water system. Wonder if they’d share.
