LET'S CARVE UP THE INTERNET,
says Big Guys
Perhaps you've read this. Perhaps not. This February article is the first time I came across the idea. Now I've seen it everywhere from our local rag to Technology Review. And I'm signing petitions on the Internet. Hope you are able to click on the picture and enlarge it for reading. It'll save me from scanning and working text with my ReadIris OCR software. Anyhow, this'll stand for an entire entry unless something else fires up my brain synapses and causes this robot to perform.
TULIA: ANOTHER SOUTHERN STORY OF IGNORANCE AND RACISM or
WHY TEXAN BUSH IS THE BUSHITE HE IS
“Tulia will forever be known as that tiny town in Texas where dozens of innocent black folks were imprisoned on the word of a lying narc. . . .” Later, after many innocent people went to jail and all the trouble was eventually cleared up by a handful of people who realized that a lying lawman, Tom Coleman, who became Texas lawman of the year—only in Texas, folks—was the source of the trouble, Jeff Blackburn, a colorful attorney from Amarillo who was involved in freeing the falsely accused persons, said, “If you play by the rules in Texas, you will lose.”
Check the entire story out in NEWSWEEK, Dec. 19, 2005, p. 44.
That's Texas folks and is why Bush is who he is, why he’s a lawless shoot from the hip wonder who doesn’t play by the rules, by the Constitution, why he could say that the Constitution was just a “damn piece of paper”. Republicans just aren’t real Americans down there in Texas. They’re backward, ignorant, cruel and crafty. And if you get caught up down there in legal problems, don’t expect there to be much help for you if you’re not rich. According to the NEWSWEEK report, many counties in Texas are trying to destroy the public defender system by paying public attorneys next to nothing. We must assume that according to Texas Republicans, people who are suspected of crimes must be guilty without trial, so why help them prove themselves innocent? In Texas all innocent people must really get screwed. Texas is a land where the rich rule the poor and the injustice down there is the injustice Bush and the Republican Party are trying to foist on the entire United States.
