    Most pitiful misuse of the National Guard since Kent State

    The US Border Patrol, the Texas National Guard and a well armed self appointed "border patrol.’
    What could possible go wrong?

    I saw a picture the other day on “Wonkette” of some “Militia members” showing off their “tactics”.
    I can’t wait to see some of those fat 350+ pound slobs waddling around South Texas in 120* heat!
    Most of them will drop dead from the heat, and the ones that don’t will more then likely end up shooting each other, thinking they are a “Bunch of Mexican Drug Cartel
    Members”!

    Why doesn’t Gov. Goodhair just hang up a Banner across the border crossing that reads “Mission Accomplished”?
    We ALL know how well THAT worked for the shrub!
    Of course, Goodhair will have to get the same ludicrous
    padding for the crotch of HIS uniform that shrub had for his flight suit!

    In addition, Greg Abbott, the State AG blocked a fifteen year law requiring the state identify to the public the location of potentially dangerous chemical and industrial plants. A year after a massive fertilizer plant explosion that killed many and cost millions in damage, the response from the candidate for governor was to make it harder on citizens to know if one of their neighboring businesses might blow up. He said that if people want to know such things, just drive around and look and if you see a company that you think is dangerous, go talk to them, they’ll tell you if they have anything dangerous on the grounds. Riiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggghhhhhhhhhhttttttttt

    Then there’s Rick Perry’s effort, of which he’s very proud, to take companies from the other 49 states and bring them to Texas where they’ll not have to pay taxes, or observe safety regulations of other states, for at least five years. Rather than do what NY is doing and offering new start ups tax breaks to BEGIN a NEW business in NY state, Perry is trying to pirate jobs from other states and in doing so, causing harm to communities and supporting businesses that sprang up around those anchor companies. Then he wants to run for President on the issue of how big government is hurting small business and people are asking for handouts instead of working. If your customers move to another state, it’s hard to make a living.

    Finally, for purposes of this comment, Wichita Falls Texas is being forced to use waste water for drinking and showering.

    Even with this extreme effort, approved by the state, to save the town, they are on track to be totally without water by 2016.

    Texas and Gov. Perry’s administration seem to blind to the damage their ‘good ideas’ are doing and are unwilling to act on ACTUAL good ideas, like the construction of desalination plants on the Gulf of Mexico to pump fresh water inland, or in joining with other states to build pipelines transporting flood waters threatening one region to regions in need of water.
    And he wants to be President.
    I’m hoping for a Jeb Bush, Elizabeth Warren battle in 2016. The media and the money will choose others.
    Respectfully,

    I don’t fear the South “rising again”, because from what I’ve read about gun accidents, half the rebels will have accidentally shot the other half by the time they make it across the Mason-Dixon line.

    The fact that the left is opposed to efforts to stop the current influx of illegal immigration leads me to doubt their claims that if we were only to grant amnesty to our existing illegal immigrant population they would agree to make our border secure against future illegal immigration.
