The last place I called home in the USA was Texas. I lived and worked there for 10 years. I lived in the Dallas area, but know the state well from doing proposals on the Super Conducting Super Collider, and the High Speed Rail Corridor, which ran from Dallas, to Houston, to Austin.
Well, we can all see the devastation that Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey has brought to the Houston area. It has pushed the Russian Conspiracy and Trump buffoonery right off the screen. But memory is fickle. How many of us know that Houston was trying to tear down Confederate Memorials and Texas Democrats Al Green and Sheila Jackson Lee wanted Trump impeached.
Houston is 43.1% Hispanic and 23.5% Black. The Media likes to show white victims, but those needing help the most, are minorities.
But in spite of the demographic, the European Idiots, Charlie Hebdo, show Swastika's over Texas. And Liberal Morons say God was punishing Texas. There are even a few Die Hard Climatologists, who failed to predict the severity of this storm who try to link it to Global Warming, even though the cause is months of study away!
But what is the real heart of the matter. Rednecks from all over are swarming to Houston with their Bass boats, canoes, water skies, flat boats of all kinds. They bring their Monster Trucks and high vehicles of all kinds to help.
The Cajun Navy, a bunch of Duck and Gator hunters bring their Air Boats, swamp buggies, and Trucks. YOU KNOW HOW A RED NECK LOVES HIS TRUCK. The very people who Houston residents were trying to tear down a month ago, are using all their resources, at their own expense and time to help them!
So for now the tradition of Southern Hospitality and helping your neighbors is the order of the day, and color and ethnicity is forgotten.
Of course this leaves the Democrats with nothing to be AGAINST. Trump is handling this better than any of his predecessors, in spite of all the opposition to him personally.
Americans everywhere have put aside their differences, and soon long term help from Churches, and Volunteer groups, including Students will be getting stuck by nails and blisters on their hands.
But already, before the water recedes, Politicians are squabbling over helping their fellow Americans. Somebody just said that Tom Cruz voted against helping “Joisey” after their hurricane, and the Black stain is saying not enough was done quickly enough.
The lesson I take away from all this, is that the people are better than the leaders they choose
