Shut Up And Eat Your Concrete! The Local Crank Takes on The TTC and the Environment

Saw this letter from Patrick Barkman to the editor in the Cleburne Times Review, excerpting this paragraph that made me laugh.

When U.S. Senate Candidate Barbara Radnofsky pointed out the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars Cintra’s partner, Zachry Construction, has pocketed over the years and the donations they have made to both Perry and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, the company was downright miffed. How dare the peasants presume to question their betters? Shut up and eat your concrete! Perry and TxDOT have gone out of their way to limit public input and belittle the thousands of Texans who have turned out at public hearings to voice their overwhelming opposition to this bloated, unwieldy cement trough for funneling special-interest money. How can Republicans support this? Where are the rabid, paranoid anti-government loonies when you really need them? Actually, it’s only Rick Perry and his cronies, not even all or most Republicans; both the Democratic and Republican state conventions adopted platforms opposing the TTC. So, folks, whether you are a tree-hugger, a hunter or just someone who’s developed a fondness for breathable air and drinkable water, it’s time to stand up and make your voice heard. Decades from now, when our grandchildren have never seen a tree that wasn’t planted in someone’s front yard or a deer outside of the zoo, are they really going to thank us because Mexican trucks can roar from the Rio Grande to the Red River, hauling cheap products north and their jobs south?

Amen!

Psst: Rob Orr supports the TTC- he just didn't like the route it was going to take, but he hasn't said he will STOP it. CAll him and put yourself on record against it and then vote him OUT for someone that won't sell out the people in his or her district.
