Listen, since the tragedy in Paris last week there has been a blur of conversations dealing with everything from gun control to religion control to the plight of refugees.
I can't begin to tell you how wrong the conservative right is on this issue. Do I start with their pro-life stance? Or do I start with their answer to Black Lives Matter being All Lives Matter.
Oops, except those of refugees. Those don't matter.
Seriously they should just come out and say what they really mean.
All White Lives Matter.
Hell they can't even make a biblical argument.
Actually speaking of conservatives, let me stop for a moment and say that I'm surprised David K hasn't blamed Paris on either me or Rep Ordaz (yet). I'm sure he'll work in her recent trip to the Holy Land as being more than just a coincidence.
Any who, back to a couple more thoughts about the Paris tragedy.
If those of you on the right who love to regurgitate bumper sticker politics and say stuff like "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" then you have to agree that religion doesn't kill people, people kill people.
So far several mayors across the country and across Texas have come out, probably in response to an equal amount of governors who have said they will not, saying they will take in refugees.
Now for the anti-immigrant crowd like Barbara Carrasco and others, it will be really interesting to watch them have a melt-down over this one. Especially because we live in a state where it is so easy to acquire a fire arm.
The gun rights people recognize there is a major problem for them. They are fine with nice white folk owning fire arms, but as soon as you get dark skinned people with foreign names in the Lone Star State where its so easy to get guns, watch them freak the hell out.
