In the last two days I have been called a “liberal” by two minor news outlets, which I find humorous and completely false. It seems that my voting record of late is liberal in nature. Interesting since these votes were all 9-0 votes, but my vote is singled out to be the liberal one. It would seem that being a twenty year veteran, an avid hunter that has hunted in several different countries, gun owner and reloader, doesn’t count for anything any more. They would have you believe that my eight years of service for I.C.E. in the fight against terrorism is something to be discouraged. On the contrary, this is an effort to pigeon-hole me because I don’t agree with the ultra right wing. Just because Attila the Hun and I aren’t bridge partners doesn’t make me a liberal.
I have stated before that I am for smaller government, fiscal responsibility, a stronger military, and I’m against anything Obama, Reed and Pelosi. The fact that I don’t adhere to the theory that Secretary General Moon is knocking on my door trying to push Agenda 21, doesn’t make me a liberal. Now certain elements of our community would love to paint me in that light, but it is for their own ulterior reasons that they do so. It isn’t because it’s true or false.
Now let’s examine this a little closer. When I was running for office there were two options for the library. One was $40 million and one was $30 million. The option that I voted for was for $20 million. The second aspect of that vote considered the Council Chambers. If we kept the current chambers it would cost $3 million to bring it up to
(American Disability Act) standards. This must be done because it is federal law, there is no choice here. Let’s break it down further. If little Johnny spent $40 million for a new library and another $3 million to refurbish an aging Council Chamber, that would be $43 million. If little Joey spend $20 million for a new library and another $6 million for a new Council Chamber that would be $26 million, who would be showing the most fiscal restrain? The vote was 9-0 and I’m the liberal, I’m also Joey, go figure. ADA
Now I have stood up to
. This is a group that has been kicked out of Jack In The Box, Chick Fillet, and Chipotle. They have been disavowed by Open Carry Texas, and distanced by the NRA due totally to their actions. They have disrespected our laws, our Police Officers, and threatened several citizens to include a radio host. My vote was to ban all weapons in Council Meetings and to not allow the distribution of literature in our busy thoroughfares. The votes were 9-0 and 8-1 respectively, but my vote was the liberal one. This post is simply an effort to illustrate that the press can print whatever they want and it doesn’t have to be true. I am a Reagan Conservative, not a right wing whack job, and certainly not a liberal. Open Carry Tarrant County
