Wow; what a wonderfully short-sighted, inconsiderate, and inaccurate (not to mention off-topic and slightly homophobic) comment you have bestowed upon us!

I do not like George W. Bush and never did, but he did not bankrupt the entire country; that was done via corporate greed, which has been around since long before either you or I were born. Besides, I do not understand what finances have to do with your statement about "where this happened"; are you arguing that all Texans are morally bankrupt, or greedy? Either is irrelevant to whatever point it was that you were trying to make.

The "Brokeback Mountain" comment was little more than an ignorant dig at people and a place that you have no knowledge or understanding about. Saying "not that there's anything wrong with being gay" after using it as a pejorative also makes you a bit of a hypocrite; it's akin to laughing at someone for having a handicap but following the laughter with "not that there's anything wrong with it". And the bit about "entitlement" was just bizarre; entitlement to what? The ability to be gay? To be in the closet? The group discount at IHOP? What?

As far as the remark about "big hats" and "chaps", I own neither nor do I know anybody who does. But if I did, you can rest assured that I would indeed wear them proudly because yes, I am proud to be a Texan, and an American, where I am guaranteed the freedom to do so.

By the way; wasn't Brokeback Mountain set in Wyoming?

Don't feed the trolls. And there is a special place in Hell for someone that takes people's life savings and spends to on themselves under the guise of the law.

Yeah, I came to that realization after it was too late to delete the post.

Did you know Tenaha, TX chief police officer is Black and most of the officers are too?

I think U.S. 59 is a major drug trafficking in the world.

The chicago tribune... the bastion of journalism...

lets see PROOF.. instead of allegations.. not anecdotal stories from proclaimed innocent grandmothers.. but proof...

Forfeiture laws are excellent for putting a hurting on drug dealers

If a department is abusing them the feds will step in, happily, so that some young hotshot AG can make a name for themselves to get a federal judgeship.....

Lets see.... if I work the ghetto Im going to stop minorities,,, hmmm,, and if your white Im going to stop you immediately because you are
a) a lost tourist waiting to be the next victim
b) A doper looking to score
C) A crook looking to hook up

We are BAGGING on the police because they are doing a great job.... I think this forum is getting polluted with liberal thinkers who react with emotion and not fact..

Lets see HOW the investigation plays out... and if the coppers are wrong... THEN fry them.. but dont be so quick to heat the skillet just yet...
