This past weekend, Sen. Ted Cruz made the following comment:
“We are seeing tens of millions of dollars flooding into the state of Texas from liberals all over the country who desperately want to turn the state of Texas blue,” Cruz said at a rally at a high school in Katy.
“They want us to be just like California, right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair.”
The Left is in an uproar over this. But, But, But, Texas has people that dye their hair, and there are both lots of computer companies and plastic surgery in Texas…. Yeah, folks, that is not the point. We do not want California in Texas or anywhere else. California is broken. It is a hot mess, and their problems need to say west of Arizona, not spread out.
What is Cruz really talking about? Stuff like this:
In San Francisco, people call the city’s telephone hotline about 65 times a day to report piles of human feces on streets and sidewalks.
That adds up to 14,597 calls placed to 311 between January 1 and August 13…
Poop isn’t the only problem, there are also major problems with old, used needles littering the ground in the city. Look, Texas has homeless people, as well (every major city does), but there is no “Poop” or needle problem elsewhere. In fact, the group United States Common Sense wrote about the major problems facing California:
Water Supply: Outdated Infrastructure and Unreliable Water Supply
Revenue Uncertainty: Unpredictable Tax Structures and Budgets
Wall of Debt: Accounting Gimmicks and Understated Debt
Public Retirement Benefits: Missed Payments, Mounting Debts, and Poor Management
Healthcare: Rising Costs and Diminishing Access to Care
K-12 Education: Low, Unstable Funding and Poor Student Performance
High-Speed Rail: Unrealistic Estimates and Poor Implementation
Crime and Corrections: Massive Overcrowding, Rising Costs, and Measuring Realignment’s Impact
Economy: Lagging Recovery and Uneven Economic Growth
Civic Engagement: Lack of Transparency, Eroding Public Trust, and Low Voter Turnout
Note that those are not ALL the problems, but what this group claims are the 10 biggest ones.
No thanks, Cali. You can keep them.
I will side with Sen. Cruz here.
We want Western Society, not Californization.
Californians, stay out of the PNW as well. Not welcome.
Reminds me of Phantom’s bumper sticker: Welcome to Texas-we don’t give a fuck how you did it in California.
Too late. They already carried the CA mindset to cities everywhere accross the union. Freedom of movement is freedom to flee the consequences of one’s bad decisions.
Geez, way to be negative about an unwritten future!
They can’t bring any fag-enabling, pro-sodomite worldview if you make sure to remind them every time you see them that they aren’t welcome, that the community doesn’t share their non-values, and that they ought to move back where they came from.
This works well in the South. We still don’t tolerate that nonsense down here, even in [THE CURRENT YEAR]. Southern Americans– black, white, red, yellow; we want to get along and be good neighbors. We want to see each other at Independence Day fireworks shows, work hard with each other, and have one another over for cookouts. We don’t want to racially hate because we saw the horrible activities that took place in Ferguson and how they hurt the very people they claimed to be rooting for.
This isn’t your granddaddy’s South.
Yeah, Texas and the South (especially in the rural areas) are quite a bit different. Here, you could close your eyes and not know the race of the person speaking, if they have been here for a generation or two. Most have been here far longer.
