Comment of the Week



In response to the "Open Letter to Texas" that I posted a couple of weeks back.

"Wow...

Jealous, much? I wonder why your family left you to come to DALLAS? You're a whining b*tch, who believes everything he sees on CNN or reads in ... the daily banter. You appear to be full of knowledge and support... because you surround yourself with like minded individuals, and you are in useless California! CA would LOVE to be like Texas, however... your state leadership and economy couldn't support your national independence.

With all your quoted figures and numbers, why did you leave your sources out? ... evidently you do not know how to write... and 'TEXAS' has low education scores? Also, another observation of information you conveniently ommitted? Perhaps you should mention that; Texas would be the 15th largest economy in the world?, or that Texas has operated within a balanced physical budget while the majority of the other states have failed to accomplish this? By the way, how's the CA bankruptcy talks going? You guys still need some money, huh? ...

Since you brought up the United States Armed Forces, the state of Texas supplies the MOST recruits to the armed forces, AND has accrued the most casualties as a result ...

STFU

Let's give a big round of applause for Governor Rick Perry, everybody. A few seriously questionable punctuation choices and quite a bit of confusing grammar, but not one misspelled word.*

Really, it's the addition of the website address at the end that really takes this from mildly funny to flat-out transcendent.

(Actually, "ommitted" is misspelled and as somebody pointed out, he probably means "fiscal" budget rather than "physical" -- I read through this very early and my brain doesn't work before before maybe 9:30AM -- all of which makes this little comment the gift that keeps on giving and a glowing testament to the might of Texas's education system.)

One misspelled word. "Ommitted."

Not really a misspelling; it's more a diction problem. But how about 'physical' for 'fiscal' (as in "physical budget" rather than 'fiscal budget)?

And here I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Proves what I know.

Do you think this writer knows that California is the 8th largest economy in the world?

JohnF said...

It's a budget you can really wrap your arms around, I guess.

Interestingly enough, he's wrong about that last bit. Latest DoD data indicates that the state that supplies the most soldiers is... California. 331 thousand of them currently. Texas is second with 299 thousand, Florida third with 186, then New York and Illinois with 147 and 113, respectively.

Yeah, yeah, you guys talk about "fiscal" this and "soldiers" that, but where are the SOURCES, huh? Show me the SOURCES!!!!!

You all just believe whatever you see on CNN or ... the daily banter.

God, I love that he put the site name in lowercase. You know-it-alls don't deserve upper case. UPPERCASE IS BIG, AND NOTHING IS AS BIG AS TEXAS!!!!@##@!!@(&&(*^

P.S. I am surprised a certain someone else didn't take offense at the insult to his namesake.
