Lubbock County Judge: Complete Economic Collapse, Probably Not Civil War, if Obama Wins

Categories: Politics
Lubbock County Judge Tom Head raised some eyebrows yesterday after he told a local TV station that the tax hike he was pushing for? Oh, it's just so the county can be prepared for when Obama, upon reelection, orders UN tanks into town and sparks a second civil war.

In a rambling interview with the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Head sort of stepped back from his remarks. Except not really at all.

As emergency management director I have to think of the worse case scenario, and I used that as an example yesterday, okay. In my opinion the worst case scenario politically financially right now is if Obama and the Senate Democrats stay in power, okay. Because I have some opinions of what they're doing and what they're trying to do if they stay in power, and I have to prepare for that. Does that mean I think the UNs going to come rolling into lubbock? No that's probably not going to happen. An F5 tornado is probably not going to come into Lubbock. I gotta prepare for it, though.

He goes on:

I pray for the president I come in here to this office between 6:30 and 7 every day monday through friday and I pray for him and I pray for our leaders we're instructed in the word ofgod to pray for our leaders. God put Barack Obama in office. I don't know why he did. I wouldn't have put him in office, but I'm not God. God has his hand on human history and he's going to raise up leaders and pull them down as he sees fit according to His Will and his purposes, So am I going to go shoot the president? No. I don't even know that he can be considered a threat, I'm just saying -- and I'm surprised that some militia group say in the north central part of the United States or whatever. I'm surprised they haven't been more vocal against not only Barack Obama but any government official but they've been kind of quiet lately I don't know why.

And on:

If Obama's reelected...I think I think probably a financial collapse is imminent if he gets back in. What are we going to do with the financial collapse? I'm not gonna have any money, you're not going to have any money. People aren't going to have any money for food or medicine or whatever. How do you deal with that? So, you know, it's something we're just going to have to work through. I suspect if something like that happens and there is an economic collapse and whatever I suspect especially in West Texas there seems to be a sort of cooperative spirit in West Texas to help your neighborhs more, and that would be good. That would be a good thing.

So when can we expect the sane citizens of Lubbock to pull this clown from office?   If they do not then they must agree with him.

Romney-Ryan-Akin.  2012's republican team of ignorance.

Well if Obama does win there will be a complete economic collapse within the next 4 years.  And Obama will welcome it.  Obama's motives are written about in his own books.  But most Americans have no clue what our president wrote or what "is in my genes" as Obama wrote.

This judge lied upfront in his first statement to Fox by saying something like I'm not politically a affiliated with any political party.  That's a laugh.  What ticket did he run under?  None?  It's surely not a Democrat, for which I am surely grateful.  Yes, one's opinions on issues matter, but one's actions and truth matter more.  This seems just another dirt job, dirty trick to me from a GOP-siding radical who is willing to demonize a standing US President, duly elected.  He admits right off, also, that when he took office many of the things he wanted & intended & tried to do, were forbidden by law.  I just wonder what these purposes of his were when he took office & if he would still put them into effect if he could manage it.  He's representing Lubbock, or is Lubbock representative of his opinions.  Either way, I agree that voicing his opinion nationwide poorly represents Texans, as all gun carrying, president bashing, shoot them first & ask questions later (if you will not agree or respect those who do not show any of the same respect for others first,) fear-promoting, shoot-em-up vigilantes out to fill their own pockets.  I agree with this judge on one issue, and that is that God chooses the leaders of nations for His Own reasons.  So it seems, despite what the judge says, his opinion differs.  I'm tired of hearing how many soldier's deaths President Obama is guilty of causing since he took office.  Seems like all of us are responsible to me for these deaths, as well as the lives saved.  What is that number?  I read the article and most listed deaths were caused by roadside bombs & some either non-military related causes.  Let's get the facts people; truth is important.  The New World Order which would reduce our rights has been promoted by many Republicans.  Who built up the national debt, way before Democrats regained office, and which party took it down?  Shame, shame for forgetting, if you have.  I'm certainly not for putting more untaxed millions in the promotion of corporate enterprises & saying American citizens are unwilling to work.  I am a Democrat, which doesn't mean it support abortion.  Surprised?  As for women's rights to make decisions about the outcome of another life,  I believe in owning up to the consequences you bought upon yourself by lack of consideration of those actions before-hand.  I believe that a reported rape should be confirmed, documented, in time to prevent conception & protect that woman, and convict the abusers.  I believe in legalized abortion ONLY to prevent the death of many who were forced into having an unqualified butcher use homes & coat hangers (etc) to cause the death of many infants and mothers.  One of my best  friends died that way, because the guy disliked children.  Some others had abortions to pre-vent bringing shame on a social-conscious family member or due to incest which remained unreported.  Some did it to please their lovers or depend on them.  I'm for children's rights which have never truly been protected, women, men, youth, person's regardless of age, unless it causing harm to another soul.   I'm a Democrat, because in that party, the people are allowed & encouraged to be involved in the process, not just going along with a pre-arranged party policy.

If Obama wins re-election, I predict that within a year a Texas public official will accuse him of being a warlock in the service of Satan.  Seriously.

 

This is what you get Texans when your voting due dilligence consists of pulling the 'R' straight tickel lever!

According to his bio, Judge Head is a graduate of Highland Park High School (which may or may not explain where he got these crazy-ass ideas)

HOLMANTX:  is this the best you can do?  Ignore the statements by the Judge and instead whine about something, anything else,   In a LOL moment:  here is a guy saying that he is going to RAISE you taxes....and you don't seem to care.   Hilarious.

 

Enough with the bait and switch - the generic ploy to ignore the elephant in the room.  Pretty funny, whining about Clinton and ignoring current reality.  That pile smells, even in TX - where folks are pretty used to it.

 

Did the news source do a nice job of posting selected snippets or did you take the time to watch the video?

CHARLOTTE — The Democratic National Convention will feature a long list of female speakers and a slew of activities designed to make it the most inclusive convention in history, organizers announced Wednesday.

 

snip!

 

So do you think President Clinton will be booed for raping Juanita Broaddrick?  He bit her lip until she cooperated - a common rape tactic.  I wonder if she took his advice and put some ice on that lip?

 

He was disbarred for lying under oath in an employer sexual harrassment case brought by Paula Jones.  That's the one where, as the Lt. Governor of Ark., he dropped trou and asked for a blow-job from a 22 year old government secretary.  She accurately described Peyronie's disease (ha!).  He later agreed to an out-of-court settlement and paid $850,000.  But HEY! he didn't have to admit NUTTIN!

 

He later admitted extramarital relationships with Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers. Did he Man up?  Elizabeth Ward Gracen apologized to Hillary Clinton (don't ask).  And can you have voluntery relations, as President of the United States, with a 22-year old intern?  Or, as the top government employer was this sexual harrassment?

 

Kathleen Willey said Clinton groped her in a hallway off our Oval Office.  She was an unpaid Dem volunteer (in fact they were ALL Democrat women he attacked) who was asking to be rolled over to a paid status so he "reached out".  Her husband committed suicide that afternoon in a park due to family financial troubles.

 

But let's drag some judge and a guy in Missouri around we have never heard of and claim they represent all the women haters and domestic terrorists who masquerade as Republicans.

 

Meanwhile, you got the poster boy for rapists as the keynote speaker (ha!).  Attaboy girls.

Head is now representative of the mainstream of the republican party.  Soon they'll be donning sheets and hoods and go out to burn crosses at night.

 @commenter The republican party is dying and desperate.  They will receive only 28% of Latino votes, and 0% of African-American votes.  Their only chance of survival is to churn up white male fear and suppress the vote of people who vote Democratic.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Hey pathetic naive white-guilt libtard! You do realize that at least 94% of all blacks who get murdered annually in the USA get murdered by another black, right? Evil white racists like me have absolutely no need to "oppress" blacks or to "keep them down", because blacks do an excellent job of that all by themselves! Way better than the KKK ever did! THANKS, BLACKS!!!!!

 @icowrich ask her, she, at the time, was a big Dem donor and party activist.  Not like an enemy of the state (a Republican).

 

He knocked her down. clamped onto her lip with his teeth, bit down until she stopped fighting and submitted.

 

He knew how.
