A Good Week for Texas

A couple of things happened this week that reinforced my love of my state of Texas.

The first was our Governor, Rick Perry, telling the EU to stuff it, we can govern our own state with out their interference.
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Texas governor Rick Perry bluntly rejected an appeal from the European Union to bring in a moratorium on the death penalty as the state prepares Wednesday for its 400th execution since 1976.

"While we respect our friends in Europe, welcome their investment in our state and appreciate their interest in our laws, Texans are doing just fine governing Texas," Perry's spokesman, Robert Black, said in a statement.

"Two hundred and 30 years ago, our forefathers fought a war to throw off the yoke of a Europan monarch and gain the freedom of self-determination. Texans long ago decided that the death penalty is a just and appropriate punishment for the most horrible crimes against our crimes."

No mincing words, no flowery rhetoric, just plain ol' STFU and butt out.

Ya gotta love a Governor that won't kiss the asses of a bunch of dhimmi surrender monkeys.

And next, Texas is still "One State Under God"!

Hat tip to Stop the ACLU for e-mailing me this article. The godless in Texas tried to ban God from our state Pledge of Alliance, and lost!
DALLAS - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott prevailed in federal court Tuesday, Aug. 28, where a North Texas couple tried to prevent schoolchildren from reciting the Texas Pledge of Allegiance.

A federal district judge ruled against David Wallace Croft and his wife, Shannon, who sought a preliminary injunction because the Texas Legislature recently added the words "one state under God" to the state Pledge. Solicitor General Ted Cruz argued on the state's behalf.

"With today's ruling, a federal judge denied the plaintiffs' attempt to prevent Texas schoolchildren from pledging their allegiance to 'one state under God' - just as they pledge to 'one nation under God,'" Attorney General Abbott said. "The United States Supreme Court has repeatedly held patriotic acknowledgments of the Almighty such as these are completely consistent with the U.S. Constitution. Texans can rest assured that we will continue vigorously defending their children's ability to recite the state Pledge of Allegiance each morning."

The voluntary, teacher-led recitation of the Texas Pledge typically follows the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance in classrooms across the state. According to the state's brief, the Legislature added the words "one state under God" to acknowledge the tradition and religious heritage inherent in America's founding.

STFU you anti-Texas liberal wankers, we always have been and always will be One State Under God. This is TEXAS, not Kalifornia.

Welcome to Texas, iffen you don't like the way our state is ran or it being under God, just turn your Volvo Wagon filled with yuppie spawn, ghey dogs, and Truther videos around and head right back across the border.
