Mexican Pastries Running Unchecked Across Texas Border—Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up

Here is the weekly Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. The round-up can be found at the end of this post.

With the round-up this week, I’m including a picture of Mexican pastries running unchecked across our Texas and southwestern border.

These pastries don’t care about our laws.

They are putting American pastries out of work.

I sometimes see the landscaping crews employed here in Houston buying these pastries as they go to work in the morning.

I wonder who is employing these folks?

Are they being employed by other Mexican people and Hispanics as part of a plot so that our nation can be overrun by immigrants?

Or are they being employed  by native-born people who want landscaping work done as cheaply as possible and who would never think of asking their own kids to do this work?

As long as we want cheap labor and have lazy children, Mexican pastries are going to be putting American pastries out of work.

I say more power to the Mexican pastries. Mexican pastries were here long before Hostess Fruit Pies and Twinkies.

Here is the round-up—

WhosPlayin has election results and commentary for Lewisville, Lewisville ISD, and Flower Mound.

Neil at Texas Liberal posted a picture of the Mayflower landing in West Texas. Under Texas State Board of Education guidelines, you can teach kids just about anything as long as it is false.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme applauds South Texas for supporting their schools. Tea Party tax brats take note.

Indemnification language exposes industry known threats to safety, public health and environment from hydraulic fracture. On Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS.

Bay Area Houston posted Governor Perry’s personal offering on National Prayer Day: Let Us Prey.

Off the Kuff reminds us of the cost of Rick Perry’s rejection of stimulus funds for unemployment insurance.

WCNews at Eye On Williamson states that the 2003 Texas GOP/DeLay redistricting scheme continues to cost Texas dearly, in The perils at the national level of being a majority minority-party state.

Rick Perry’s ad attacked Bill White’s ad this past week, and Rick Perry’s ad lost. Not because it was filled with lies and mischaracterizations, and not because it used Yao Ming in a weirdly inappropriate way. No, Rick Perry’s ad got kicked because Rick Perry is man so terrified of everything in his life that even laser sights and hollow points aren’t enough to comfort him. PDiddie at Brains and Eggs has “Perry v. White over the air”, a fight which resembled Mayweather-Mosely in its one-sided outcome.

At TexasKaos, JRBehrman poses three questions about the BP oil spill and gives useful perspective on their answers… Check it out : Three Questions. Hint: no quick fixes here!
