"We welcome people here but you have to think like we do."

Those words were spoken by Republican Jerry Patterson who is currently Texas Land Commissioner, and who is running for Lieutenant Governor's office.

Some people really don't engage their brain before flapping their gums smiley - facepalm Will there be thought police knocking on the doors of those who don't think the same way? Attitude adjustment camps? Perhaps deportation to somewhere less authoritarian... which could be just about anywhere.

Compare that to this statement from another prominent Texas politician.

"Trying to push Americans into a relatively small box and say, 'here is how you all are going to perform and act and function' is not a productive or positive way to lead this country," he said. "We're just too diverse -- geographically, ethnically, characteristically ... Trying to make one size fits all for health care, or education or transportation policies -- I just don't think Americans are wired that way."


Can you believe that came from (p)Rick Perry?
Granted he was trying to make some point about small government being good for diversity, which is quite at odds with most republicans angst regarding "multiculturalism"... Still. That thing Patterson said won't hurt him in this state sadly. It's all dog whistle politics here anymore.

This is a perfect example of how 24 hour news means that pixels (and airtime) have to be filled with... anything and everything, no matter how trivial and non-newsworthy smiley - facepalm

Are gardeners wrong to put 'crocks' in plant pots?

Some people obviously have far too much time on their hands, and the news media have far too many pixels to fill smiley - facepalm
