West Texas News from San Angelo
in Accused Cattle Thief Stalks Reporters
I'm reminded of that movie "Airplane" you linked to elsewhere—the same movie with the pilot asking inappropriate questions. I'm reminded of this because I have to ask: have you ever been to Mexico? Between driving habits, police effectiveness, and any number of given factors, I doubt you'd be pleased.
It's against the law for someone to shoot a bottle rocket where I live. If I want quiet, and don't want to pick up some asshole's litter the following day, yeah, a call for service is a very convenient decision -- just as I'd ask a waiter for a new fork, if mine had spots on it.
Certain people are hired to do certain things, but of course the only one's who'd take issue with me and my dislike for noise and litter, are usually the one's providing it -- and I don't give a shit what they think anyway.
You misinterpreted the post (I think) you were referring to, regarding police protection vs. responsible proactivity. I'll clarify, hopefully:
I'd fully appreciate the opportunity to confront the bottle rocket guy, the chicken burner...but that's not the system we're allowed to live under. You're right, police duties could be put to much better utilization, and this would happen if more responsible proactivity among members of the community could be trusted, as we trust that the car at the red light will most likely stop, as our turns green -- but we cannot live under that system, as many would abuse it.
In a society with no police protection, it might be very interesting to learn exactly who'd be "eaten", who'd do a majority of the eating, and even go a bit further into snacking and comfort food -- in the name of bettering our community, of course.
Oh you're preaching to the choir about America having a great system. Rule of law is why so many are willing to risk so much to get here in the first place. Just noting that some aspects of what you're commenting on are actually part of a larger historical trend.
Sometimes I suppose it may be easy for some to mistake the relatively posh situation of the local probation officers sitting in their office doing real important stuff on their computers for the tough job of being out on the street dealing with incorrigibles wielding everything from illegal firearms to pointy objects to a funny look on their face to portable meth labs, etc.
"Handling their own," though, sounds like a legal liability in some cases. I'm sure if Lares kidnapped some bottle rocketeers and demonstrated some of the S&M ideas he's written about in previous Live! articles until those individuals had a spontaneous change of heart, he'd suddenly be the "bad guy."
I spoke of societal cleansing in direct reference to several comments Lares has made over the time that I have frequented Live... A lot of users on Live talk about how "we should" handle those that fall into the less than savory category, as though our system is so faulty. We have the best justice system in the world.
People of all walks can pose a threat from the sweaty, dope fiend, street strutter... To the well educated, mild mannered, family man. Nobody is special when it comes to posing a threat... some folks can handle it on their own, some folks call the police over nonsense.
Going to happen one way or the other. Why do you think the wealthy, world leaders, and the other power brokers on this planet are so concerned with global population and how do you think it's going to get lowered?
Friend of a friend of mine "hates smart people." I can understand why Lares is often so callous in his appraisals. There are plenty of blustering 800lbs gorilla chiefs who wouldn't stand a chance up against one smart weirdo with a sharp stick and a mean look in his eyes if it wasn't for that Relical database the legal system set up.
In defense of our (apparently) libertarian "devil," Lares.
in Bell Street Reconstruction Makes Major Progress
The Rodeo is here with many people visiting from out of town. To a city where roads are in very much need Repair. Not just one specific road but to many to count. I am not sure what the Mayor and City Council are doing but it appears not much. Bell Street is underway and soon College Hills but more needs to be done. The area around the Police Station has many pot holes. The Police need our support as many people do drive around there due to the park and old Fire House. Rio Concho Drive is very much need of repair as many tourist travel the Concho River. The area around the Main Post Office needs repair. Many pot holes around the city. I could go on and on but I feel I am wasting my time. Now I understand the last mayor was too busy with The Trash Can Deboggal of taking trash cans from good alleys to now being pick up in the streets where debris get left behind and the wind picks it up. . Now the lack of pavement of the streets started under that Snake Hat Mayor but this Lady Mayor seems to care more about downtown where her business is than looking out for San Angelo. More and more streets are in disrepair. Not to mention the yards with overgrown weeds and allowing cars to be parked in the yards. San Angelo has ordinances that are law with fines. What is happening to San Angelo? Does anyone not do their job nymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where is the City Counsel? Are they not looking out for their districts by at least driving the neighborhoods and reporting what they see to appropriate departments. Tired of seeing San Angelo not being appreciated by its politicians and citizens.
Insecure snowflake's need to feel protected by law enforcement because they could never impose their will to be left alone on someone without their existence. I think the weak deserve to be protected by the strong, not bullied... The only thing that bothers me is that many waste resources that could be better put to use without this kind of nonsense.
Lares, you love the law when it strokes your sense of power and control, but you are the first to whine and talk about your crazed methods of societal cleansing when some idiot pops a bottle rocket near your house... Without the police, you would be eaten by the streets... You would be labeled as a coward and snitch and dealt with according to their rite's and ritual's...
There is alot of bell street to be worked on berfore Major Progress can be proclaimed):
a song about him. hope all is well .
this has nothing to do with anything as usual. It was an inspiring story told by Bill Anderson.
in Tom Green County Democratic Party Chair Outlines His Progressive Agenda He is Pushing on Rural Texans
It has been a pleasure reading the excellent rants and articles generated by Mr. Currie's so-called progressive agenda piece. I'd now like to tag on to the conversation. Mr. Currie states in his article that the Republican Party wants religious freedom only for Christians. That is not true. Perhaps he and I disagree on the definition of religion. A religion that exercises beliefs that are in conflict with our Constitution, such as honor killings or child sacrifice or that its adherents are to be governed by a separate set of laws entirely, is not compatible with American norms and ideals, not to mention American law. Not accepting with open arms such a system, even if it represents itself as a religion, is far from being a case of infringement on religious freedom. Instead, it is a desire to preserve and protect the liberty and freedom afforded to all under current law.

Not accepting such a system wanting to be called a religion is not infringement of religious freedom, but rather a desire to preserve freedom and liberty afforded to all under current law.
Our current political environment reminds me of these lyrics
They give him his orders at Monroe, Virginia
Sayin', "Steve you're way behind time
This is not Thirty-Eight, but it's old Ninety-Seven
You must put her in Spencer on time"
Then he looked 'round and said to his black greasy fireman
"Just shovel in a little more coal
And when we cross that white oak mountain
You can watch old Ninety-Seven roll"
watch ole 97 roll
in It's More Than Just About Methamphetamine and Killing People
I saw Charlie Waller and the country gentlemen at a bluegrass festival . Also, Jim Jesse and the Virginia boys were there. I met and greeted them. It sorta reminded me of how approachable stars were before everyone got wierd and needed security patrols. that version of the song they did, but it was my grandma's favorite song. the waltz of the angels.
I was told it was Appalachian.
The news gets a little ^. I before E , except after C.
that is why my teacher gave me a C. good piano player though, that woman.
in Only the Brave Take on the Chilly Goodfellow AFB Polar Bear Run & Swim
Pretty good at being the armchair observer. Only two more payments and I will have this Lazy boy recliner paid for.
I just wouldn't be able to do this.
That is a joke about when you are the expert but could never do the actual thing. So, I was at a karaoke event once. The crowd really like this guy who singing. So, I talked to him and said that, you should sing it like this. Then he said, I know how to do it.
