Thursday, July 16, 2015 – The Invasion of Texas and Tom Lehrer is Alive and Well

Thursday, July 16, 2015 – The Invasion of Texas and Tom Lehrer is Alive and Well

I see where Jade Helm 15 – aka The Invasion of Bastrop – has begun. The concerned citizens, such as a former sheriff from Arizona (that tells us a lot) and his volunteers are “shadowing” the exercise – with their still concealed (until September 1) handguns. And Goobernor Abbott has ordered State Guard to monitor them and the rest of the goings on.

This is a military training exercise across multiple states. Military officials have said the topography in selected areas is ideal to replicate foreign combat zones. What foreign combat zone does Bastrop represent?

Meanwhile, The United States signed an agreement with Iran. In light of the two “events” I bring you once again, from 1965 and equally as relevant today – the genius of Tom Lehrer, from That Was The Year That Was with “Who’s Next?” Sing along and Just change “Alabama” and sing “ We’ll try to stay serene and calm when BASTROP COUNTY gets the bomb.

Who’s Next? By Tom Lehrer

First we got the bomb, and that was good, ‘Cause we love peace and motherhood.

Then Russia got the bomb, but that’s okay, ‘Cause the balance of power’s maintained that way. Who’s next?

France got the bomb, but don’t you grieve, ‘Cause they’re on our side (I believe). China got the bomb, but have no fears, They can’t wipe us out for at least five years. Who’s next?

Then Indonesia claimed that they Were gonna get one any day. South Africa wants two, that’s right: One for the black and one for the white. Who’s next?

Egypt’s gonna get one too, Just to use on you know who. So Israel’s getting tense. Wants one in self defense. “The Lord’s our shepherd,” says the psalm, But just in case, we better get a bomb. Who’s next?

Luxembourg is next to go, And (who knows?) maybe Monaco. We’ll try to stay serene and calm When Alabama gets the bomb. Who’s next? Who’s next? Who’s next? Who’s next?

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 – Happy Cinco de Mayo and the Invasion of Texas or Grito de Idiots

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 – Happy Cinco de Mayo and the Invasion of Texas or Grito de Idiots

Cinco de Mayo is not a celebration of Mexican independence.

According to History.com, the Mexicans celebrate their independence from Spain on September 16th. This is the day priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla declared war against the Spanish government in 1810 with his call to arms that is known as the “Grito de Dolores” or “Cry of Dolores.”

Cinco de Mayo commemorates a relatively small battle.

The 5th of May is the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, a battle which resulted in the unlikely victory of Mexico over France in 1862, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.

In 1861, Mexico defaulted on a number of foreign debts that it owed to England, Spain, and France. All three countries invaded Mexico, but England and Spain retreated by the next year. France however, stayed in hopes of creating a monarchy in Mexico led by the Archduke of Austria, Maximilian.

Now Cinco de Mayo should not be confused with the invasion of Texas by the federal government or as it is known in Bastrop County – The Obama Attack of Texas and Bastrop County. Why the residents think their country would be the choice of an attack, as opposed to other counties, such as Harris or Dallas, or even Bexar, I do not know.

It seems a federal government training exercise called Jade Helm 15 is to take place throughout the western United States, including Texas.  The Gathering of the Conspiracy Theorists has produced thoughts such as:

  1. The Federal government and/or the United Nations (maybe both) are invading Bastrop County.
  2. They are coming to seize all of the guns.
  3. They are coming to imprison dissenters.
  4. They are connected to the closing of Walmart stores where dissenters will be housed.

However, the “interesting” fact is that the Governor of Texas has called up the Texas State Guard to protect the residents.  Think about that for a moment. The state government is sending troops to protect residents from the federal troops based on fear and paranoia.

This has caused former politicians such as Lt. Governor, David Dewhurst to say “IT’S a training exercise.” and former state representative, Todd Smith to say the governor is “pandering to the idiots.” Note: both of those quotes are from Conservative Republicans.

The military exercises are scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 15.  Oh yes, Mexico celebrates its Independence from Spain on September 16.

Here’s what I’m thinking – Let’s declare September 17 – Day of the Idiots. Goobernor Abbott has the power to declare state holidays too.

I do think the republicans have begun their own self-destruction. Don’t even get me started on the cartoon convention in Garland.
