Texas Vote


I trust all you Texans are gonna be voting the Kinkster Governor.

Too bad he wasn't from Calif or NY - course then he wouldn't be the Kingster.



Regards Texans

Re: Texas Vote


Kinky Friedman. Country singer, mystery writer, real smart guy.

He's going to stop illegal immigration into Texas by paying the Mexican General in charge of that section of border 2 million US a year. But he will deduct $10,000 from that amount for every mexican he catches who makes it across, and has to send back. I wouldn't want to be that mexican - would you?

He also says if gays want to get married and the legislature wants to pass something on it - he won't veto. He says they have a constitutional right to be just as miserable as the rest of us.

Now is he a guy who makes sense or what?

Re: Texas Vote


I'll just copy and paste my WWT respoinse.

I did vote early again. Only way to go. No lines. No crowds. I get to vote right in the courthouse and don't have to travel an extra 2 miles to vote in the old Armory.
I am ready to give up on the ballots though. I've been saying it's time for bullets for a long time.
I say if you've ever heard their name before just write someone else in. They're all rascals and thieves and liars and whores and it's time to start with a clean slate.
My sister knows Kinky well. You wouldn't vote for him either if you knew what I know. Nope. Kinky is not the answer. He's just a great marketer like all politicians.

Ah, but I won't get started on all this sewage.

Timbers,

Well I don't know anything about him personally. But you're right about this :

Re: Texas Vote


Anyone who can get away with songs like his gets my vote.
He is one funny and smart man!

Considering his stance on issues I think he is a great choice.
I love these quote:

"I am not anti-death penalty, but I'm damn sure anti-the-wrong-guy-getting-executed"

"I just want Texas to be number one in something other than executions, toll roads and property taxes."


"Musicians can run this state better than politicians. We won't get a lot done in the mornings, but we'll work late and be honest."

And my absolute favorite:

"Somebody that goes out and kills a polar bear or has to go out and shoot an elephant, I believe God punishes 'em by giving them erectile dysfunction... That's just a theory, though."


I'm not sure if Texas is ready for him though.

Re: Texas Vote


Ok guys...I cautioned the WWT post, and this one stops before it starts, rules are rules (much as I love a spirited fight on politics!). Thread closed.
