Re: No place but Dallas.

“At approximately 8:00 yesterday morning the City of Dallas removed the Texas Ranger monument from the entry way of Dallas Love Field. The epitome of Law Enforcement, Professionalism, and Texas. The finest Law Enforcement organization. The Dallas County elected officials thought it may be offensive to travelers. How about us born and bred Texans? This is absurd, to accommodate few and their “feelings”.

I am Hispanic, have been for 57 years. I worked hard to obtain the position of a Texas Ranger. Although, I may not speak much of my career as a Texas Ranger, make no mistake, I am a proud Texas Ranger and celebrate the prestigious accolades of being a Ranger because of the great men and women that wore that badge pressed from "Cinco Peso", those badges worn before I wore mine and those that wear it now. A Texas Ranger has a rich tradition from the early days of taming the then wild Texas border as Texas was being formed. I'm sure there were injustices like most beginnings but that is life and it can't be undone. The Texas Rangers have evolved into the best law enforcement investigative unit in the nation because they fight the fight for the poor, the weak, the opressed, the wrongfully convicted, those men and women deprived of justices and they track down the dangers of our society. This politically correctness is destroying the history of our Great State, our nation and the great Texan men and women that make Texas the Lone Star Republic.
I'm Texas Ranger Proud!!“

More on Dallas taking down Texas Ranger Statue.

Yep Texas Ranger who posed for statue did something racist in 1957.

And Texas Rangers did racist things back then.

Chuck Norris was not blamed.

Texas Ranger statue at Dallas Love Field to be removed.

Something to do with an unpublished book.

Been there since 1963.

Texas Rangers are police and police are bad?
Model for statue was Caucasian and they are bad?
Model for statue’s grandfather owned slaves?
Artist was Caucasian?
Artist’s grandfather owned slaves?
Model for statue said something racist that was published?
Artist for statue said something racist that was published?
The Texas Rangers did something racist once?
Chuck Norris did something racist once?

Dallas jury decides against dad who wanted to stop mom from giving 7 year old son gender transitioning drugs that would stop puberty.

We may have mean streets in Houston, but we are not completely brain dead yet.

Dallas ponies up $100,000 for immigrant legal services.

I think I read where Dallas can’t pay for police protection for it citizens and 911 calls may take 2 1/2 hrs to respond.

But hey, Houston paid $20,000 for a non English speaking poet laureate.

Oh Dallas’s bike system was dockless. Houston’s bike sharing has docks and is very neat and orderly and seems to be used mainly by tourists. (Yes, Houston gets the rare tourist)

Never mind.

Wow... $821 per bike is flat out extortion or theft!! The bikes themselves are maybe worth a 1/4 of that. (at retail!) The only "Terrible" thing here is the lack of leadership in Dallas.
Whatever could you mean?

Rawlings is a neo-Marxist. Clay Jenkins is a leftist DemocRat. The City Manager came from Tacoma and the new police chief from Detroit. Crime is up, the homeless are running the streets and camping everywhere, youth gangs are robbing and murdering, city services are deteriorating if they still even exist at all and there is apparently no money for anything other than removing harmless historical statues. Texafornia is a reality. :mad5
I knew Dallas’s pension problem was worse than Houston’s, but Dallas is the new Austin, I had no idea. At least in Austin and Houston, we like bikes and feel good things like that.

No place but Dallas.

https://reason.com/blog/2018/08/07/dall ... ng-company

Bikes on the recycling heap in Dallas. Mayor blames Bikeshare Company. May be it was the $800 per bike city licensing fee. Ya think.

I learned about this from a conservative gun lover in California.
