Politics, Gripes, Complaints / ..congrats Katy ISD taxpayers..

I moved from Kingwood when it became obvious that it would be annexed by Houston - then, in Montgomery County I was sickened by the money (taxpayer's money) that went into building a friggin' high school football stadium at Montgomery HS

but now, just heard and read about the $72 million + cost for the Katy HS's stadium - and the bragging that it's the most expensive in tejas and possibly the country

enjoy your tax bill - maybe take a picture and thumbtack it to the wall ..... before you shoot yourselves

The problem is, this never ends.

This started with the removal of the confederate flags.
Once they got those, then it moved to the statues,
and honestly, how many really people notice them or even know the statues exist?

The next logical step will be to get rid of the statues of any founders that owned slaves, presidents that owned slaves, and yes
people like William Travis, Sam Houston, Stephen Austin, etc. as they all owned slaves.

I have read posts about how much pain people of color endure seeing the confederate statues,
so I can only assume it's just as painful to live in a city named for a slave owner.
So, those need to be changed as well.

It's happening here in SA too.

The thing I can't help but notice is Texan decency never fails, even in big hooplah events like this one.

Black Friday in other parts of the US:

Racially sensitive political gathering in other parts of the US:


Racially sensitive political gathering in San Antonio:


That last picture was taken relatively recently at a gathering to discuss whether or not we should remove the statues of confederate leaders here too.

I disagree with the notion of rewriting history, even though I'm brown. My dad thinks it's stupid and he grew up when segregation was still alive and well. I just hope all this nonsense ends soon or we really will have civil war 2.0 on our hands.

Sometimes I really wanna hang my head and thump it against the table. Texas has some of the fastest growing cities out there, and damn it if that don't mean we're going to have crazies move here from outta state and start tearing things up.

96fordsix,

To quote Justice Thurgood Marshall of the SCOTUS in a case involving a drive-in movie,  "Should a person see something which he finds displeasing, he should avert his eyes to something that he finds more pleasing."

Lone Rider leather,

NOT me (as I'm not a leather-smith.) but I've seen Adolfo Verna de Garza (My old boot-maker in Nueva Laredo)  make similar simple things (like "Plain Jane" cellphone cases & Buck folder sheaths) in not more than 15 minutes from start to finish.
NO custom-made western boots were so complicated that they couldn't be delivered in 48 hours.
(It's a crying shame that Mexico is now so violent that my saddle-maker in Saltillo tells me to NOT even attempt to go to his shop anymore. - Over a 15 year period, he built me saddles, bridles & 3-4 sets of breast harness for pleasure driving.)

yours, satx
