Texas & the KKK 

You know, I love my home state, Texas. There's just so many things there to see! I always get that sense of pride whenever someone tells me that they just LOVE San Antonio. Of course, some days, I just miss Texas and the friendly people.

However, there are some days where I read the news and I'm like...that just so didn't happen, right? Unfortunately, Texas has had its share of oddities and absurdities. But then, what other states don't have that as well?

First of all, the KKK applied for a permit for a "peaceful" rally against same sex marriages in Austin. Austin approved the permit. Huh? Whaaaa? Did that just really happen? Austin? Approved? KKK? Oh, you must've meant Krazy for Krispy Kreme, right? No? The Ku Klux Klan? Oh, fuckity fuck!

Well, they'll be doing their demonstration this Saturday. They say that they will not say anything inflammatory. Honey, you don't have to do anything. Your name alone is inflammatory! No Nonsense in November will be holding a counter demonstration by having a vigil. The NNN also say they will be peaceful.

The police aren't taking any chances. You see, the NNN will be holding their vigil half a block away where the KKK will have their demonstration. That's just a little too close to each other as we all know that emotions will run high. I wouldn't be surprised if a riot breaks out.

Voters will go to the polls on November 8th on whether or not to ban gay marriage, which will also include civil unions.

On a related story, supporters of the ban on gay marriage are upset. Apparently, there's been calls to Texas residents, informing them that the measure on the gay marriage ban is horribly worded that would allow the possibility for judges to ban or not recognize common-law marriages or nullify wills and other important documents among unmarried straight couples.

I am curious what the outcome will be on November 8th.

Wha'cha think?

ta ta for now...
