I know I sound like a broken record, but once again I am challenging the wisdom of your timing of restating the position that society needs to “toughen up” on the have nots, and your continued railing against that completely non-existent issue of our courts being clogged with Derridian DeConstructionists. WTF? Forget the courts being influenced by lobbyists gone wild and unrestricted money being poured in to elect judges from special interests…..no, we must fear the evil and ubiquitous Derridian DeConstructionists. OMG!!

On the subject of going soft on the have nots, just look where Texas is today. We have arguably, the poorest public school system in the county rating 49th in verbal SAT scores and 46th in SAT math scores. Texas was the only state in the nation to cut average per pupil expenditures in fiscal year 2005, resulting in a ranking of #40 nationally; down from #25 in fiscal year 1999. It goes on and on and on.

Just this week Texas elected to feed TDC prisoners only breakfast and dinner on weekends to save money.

The incarceration rate in Texas in 704 per 100,000, the highest in the world. The incarceration rate in the People’s Republic of China in 117 per 100,000 and the Islamic republic of Iran in 226 per 100,000.

Now comes choke telling us we have gone soft, like toilet paper.

Really like the blog, appreciate the share!
