Quote of the Day

About the BATFE, "That bunch has a real corner on stupid" - Tom Edwards, County Attorney, Motley County, Texas.  

Seems the BATFE decided to blow up some old explosives. In Texas, where there's a bit of a wildfire problem.  To further quote Edwards,
"We had high winds, we're under a burn ban because of extensive prairie fires, brush fires, and in they rolled with the idea of blowing up things."
"Unfortunately, a fragment ignited some grass," Crowley said.
I assume you've heard that back in April, Governor Perry asked the Feds for Texas to be declared a disaster area for their wildfires, and aid was turned down this week.  But the same Fed.gov sent aid to Mexico for help with their wildfires.
The Obama Administration sent aid to Mexico to battle a 386 square mile fire but refused to consider the 2.5 million acre fire in Texas a disaster area.
A fine example of Obama politics.  Texas didn't vote for him in '08, so screw 'em, let 'em pay for their own damned fires.  Might interfere with another lavish White House party.

This is simply another occasion when Obama displays just how petty a tyrant can be. I'm sure he would punish more individuals if he thought he could get away with it, especially governors who displease him. It is impossible, for me at least, to hold any respect for Obama whatsoever.
