Lubbock County Judge Tom Head
This has nothing to do with Dallas, except that Dallas and Lubbock are both in Texas, but a Friend of Unfair Park passed along an article from a local TV station about a proposed tax increase in Lubbock County. More specifically, it's about County Judge Tom Head's reasons for asking for a tax increase:

Judge Head said he and the county must be prepared for many contingencies, one that he particularly fears, is if President Obama is reelected.

"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens?," Head asked.

"I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.

"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'.

"And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me' he said, 'yeah, I'll back you'. Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."

You know, having UN troops roll into Lubbock might not be such a bad idea after all.

Good Lord, what a pathetic bunch of Obama cheerleaders in this echo chamber!   One person speaks the truth and all you giggling ass-clowns start hopping up and down on him. Is this a DNC blog?

The fact that he proposed a tax increase is astounding. That will cost him re-election.

They played Head's psychotic rant on national TV last night.  He's perfect for the Romney-Ryan-Akin team.

When you have a loon Governor talking crazy, why we don't think his followers will do the same.

@Dallas_Observer Fox News quickly announced that the Texas judge would begin his new show weeknights after Hannity.

*ha ha* I love the law of unintended consequences.

 

TEA party Repubs have painted the party into a corner with their "NO NEW TAXES NOW OR EVER" mantra. Now, in order to get any sort of tax revenue they need to shake the ONE WORLD/OBAMA/MUSLIM/U.N. TAKEOVER boogey man around, and there are only so many rubes that will fall for that crap.

 

How will Andy ever buy Barney a new bullet if we cain't raise taxes?

 

Even most conservatives I know think this guy is off his rocker.

Thank you for the article on the sale of BLM horses for slaughter! I would never have expected the death of baby foals in a terrie ble helicopter roundup, stampled to death a hog tied baby , then a roundup to sell to slaughter in Mexico at $.25 a pound. The people , tourists, residents should be up in arms. It was only a few weeks ago they shot 40 some burros. I can't believe that gelding the stallions, or at least letting people buy them instead icf sending them to a vicious slaughter in Mexico!..Thank you for exposing this. Tourists are not going near the parks and I hope they know "they have slit their own throats" on this one. Watch the d

Texas has *always* been a joke; but really? I mean REALLY? And this guy is a judge? He should immediately be fired for incompetence.

Every time we criticized Bush, the right-wing screamed treason. So, now that actual treason is proposed, where is the over-the-top outrage we heard back when the Dixie Chicks did nothing more than say they were ashamed Bush was from Texas?

Good God Almighty! I hope when Obama is re-elected to his second term, and this guy sees no "Obamapocalypse," that he has the Texican honor to resign his office for being beyond ridiculous. Talk about hollering FIRE in a crowded theater! For any public official to spout such swill is unconscionable in this day and age. This is someone who should fade away to his underground bunker where he can better protect his precious bodily fluids! :)

 @engmofo  There aren't any basements in Dallas, dipshit.  Chicken nuggets are for Christian proles and blacks.  Try some accurate insults, you pathetic white-guilt libtard cliche.
