    Yep-but by Texas standards,thats a mansion! For $250,000 we get ar least 3,000 sq ft and all the best stuff. From what I've seen,in CA. that would buy a big closet!

    The bonfire comment was related to an actual occurrence in this area about a decade ago. A black family decided to build in a notoriously racist area. When the threats, vandalism, and threats didn't deter the family, a mysterious fire erupted and the almost completed home was a total loss.

    That is what happened when one wanted to "change the rules", albeit in that area, they were unspoken. In areas which hide behind red tape to carry out their prejudice, those in positions of power will never question the way things are or bring in someone who possibly would.

    A different area fought for private status and won it, just so they could control who came in. It bit them in the ass when a natural disaster wiped them out and they found that during their fight for "freedom" they had waived access to publicly funded works and/or aid.

    That is what happened when one wanted to change the rules.

    Yes, that was what I thought that you meant. Some bigots are the bigest bullies due to their cowardice nature.

    Yes, they are bullies. Instead of putting aside the fear and ignorance, they grab weapons and assault.

    Ha ha ha - I can see Dubya out pooper scooping Barney's shit with his shoe. Did anybody see on the Daily Show where Jon S had a side by side comparison of Obama at a podium discussing the financial bailout next to Dubya playing round the maypole with all these kids looking like a jackass? He's like Nero, fiddling himself while the country burns.

    Yes, it was funny but maddening at the same time. Can we just get the bike already?
