“A controversial Texas state website that allows farmers and ranchers on the border to vent their frustration will stay up, despite the objections of some lawmakers.
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples launched the website last week to bring attention to the dangerous situation on the Texas border with Mexico.
The website, Protectyourtexasborder.com, allows farmers and ranchers who live and work on the border to share pictures, videos and stories about their run-ins with drug cartels and human smugglers.
However, it’s the site’s chat-room that has generated some unanticipated controversy…”
One must expect that some of the commentaries on the site will be quite passionate. After all, this is not a game but a matter of survival for Texans. The federal government has abandoned Americans who live and work on the border.
I say let them have their sight, forum and say their peace. Texans are within their right to do that which they must to protect their land, our country and their family and loved ones.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances….
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
How long it will be before Obama, Holder and Napolitano gets involved to do what they do best, i.e., undermine Americans and attack our liberties.
