your county government, claims to not have the time or money to clean the ike debris out of the drainage system----- but yet they want to spend millions to build a park on highlands shores road in highlands. this place they want to make a park gets under water every time it rains, its a actual marsh every time the river floods it gets several feet under water. during rita and ike it got as much as 12 feet under. what a lovely way to spend your tax dollars. the contractors are already showing up looking at the area. lining up to eat slop at the county pork trough. houses in highlands are flooding due to no drainage, but yet the county has money to build a park in a marsh with YOUR tax dollars.

Did you not know you were buying a house in the flood plain?

Instead of creating a park, which isn't much damaged by floodwaters, you want the taxpayers to spend an awful lot of money for flood control so that people can live where a river floods every time it rains.

silly thing- hezekiah, my house does not flood. but many do. these houses have never flooded, now they do. so what you are saying is-- its ok for the county to spend millions on a park in a swamp.these houses that now flood are 40 feet above the swamp. its just that the county will not clear the drainage.

you wild eyed idiot--- how is it wanting the government to take care of me-- what I am asking is for the county flood control to do their job. clean the drainage like our tax dollars pays them to do. now as far as the SOCIALIST CRAP-- sir I am far from a socialist-- I voted against your beloved OBAMA-- which is a full commie. I sir am a life member of the NRA. I despise LIBERALS, and DEMOCRATS, i believe you are both.--- sir I believe you just might have connections to the contractors, that are lining up to lick the public trough. or maybe you are just a troll that cruises and tries to stir it up. anyway good sir you just be worried what takes place in homoville(AUSTIN) and the red necks in HOUSTON will take care of the business here.

A true queer-hating, redneck, NRA stooge would quit blubbering and get off your lazy ass and pull a tree branch out of the gutter.

You disgust me as much as those goddamned Negroes in New Orleans who refused to help themselves.

Come on, Red Dawn. Why do I have to support you with my tax money just because you are too lazy to stumble out of your trailer and pull some weeds out of a ditch?

Everyone knows it floods in Highlands. Put your trailer on stilts if you just have to live in the swamps, but don't ask the government to help you out. That's Socialism.

How sad!!!
I guess I must be all those horrible things you mentioned too, Hezekiah. I, too, want the government to do the job we, as taxpayers, pay them to do. When you have a job, DO IT!!! If it is your job to make sure the drains are clear so it is safer for the public and there is less flooding, DO IT!!! As a home owner, I make sure my ditches are clear so the water will flow freely. I am unable to get out a chainsaw and clear everyone's ditches and the drain pipes because I have a job which keeps me busy. That is why taxpayers PAY people to do it. Now, when they don't do their job - I feel it is my right to complain. That is what I hear Red Dawn saying to the flood control: JUST DO YOUR JOB!!!

Red Dawn is a Socialist who lives in a trailer down on the river bottom with a Confederate flag in the living room. He wants big government to take care of him so he can live in the flood plain.

He hates queers and jewboys, even though these two groups on average pay higher taxes and insurance premiums than he does just because he won't put his trailer up on stilts.

If a hurricane one day catches him and drowns him in his trailer or leaves him floating face down in the floodwaters, he will no doubt expect me to help pay government workers to fish his bloated white corpse out of the sewage after a few weeks.

Hez you useless twit. You parade for the government to hand out rights to every law breaker that jumps the border. It's becoming pretty obvious you're nothing more than a board troll. You never contribute anything worthwhile to a discussion just useless racial based rhetoric.

I bet his trailer is much more comfortable to live in than "your" house with 30 of your cousins living with you. How's the sandwich action on those colder nights? There's some stereotyping for you.

I don't think I'm useless. I provide an opportunity for the pasty-faced citizens of Pasadena to practice their inbred racism on me without fear of physical violence.

If you'll analyze the process, you'll see that it's always basically the same. To begin, I made a fairly sincere comment about the real problem of coastal residents building houses in a flood plain. Creating parkland in flood plains is a wiser use of the land. Building subdivisions in a floodplain means higher flood insurance for everyone and higher taxes for flood control.

Then I make a humorous comment pointing out the often ironic position of conservative and Libertarian types wanting government services for themselves, but resenting the same for others.

This almost always results in the respondent calling me a queer or illegal alien or welfare Negro, and, of course an idiot. Usually with ALL CAPS and weird punctuation.

In this case I made an allusion to the human disaster in New Orleans which many of the Bush-voting racists on this board will blame on the residents themselves, most being black. It's not an unreasonable exaggeration to compare Red Dawn's flooding complaints to the poor job FEMA did in New Orleans and the fact that the federal government knew for decades that the dikes were not trustworthy and that the destruction of the wetlands by the oil industry was exacerbating the flooding problem.

The kind of people who will call me a queer Negro jewboy wetback can't read between the lines and have to have every joke explained to them. But, you know, that's really all part of the entertainment.

HEZEKIAH--(TROLL) (FOOL) IDIOT--just to show what a FOOL you are--you say I have a confederate flag, and I am a socialist-- YOU FOOL confederate flags and socialists do not go together, they are completely different ,and mortal enemies. sir I do not live in a trailer, I have a 2500 square foot home, that is paid for. I am NOT in the flood plain. the elevation is 45 feet. I live in HIGHLANDS TEXAS, which is named after the elevation. so good sir you are just here to stir it up. you must do this for entertainment. and sir I do believe YOU sir were the first one to bring up the racial crap. when you said I was like the new orleans negroes. look back in this thread and see that is a fact. TROLL BOY.

Brother Red dawn, once again your lack of knowledge of history reflects its depth in your posts. The National Socialist Party(NAZI), the confederate flag, and other symbols of hate fit together nicely. Brother Hez makes an educated point; if you build in a flood plain, expect to be flooded.

I just like to see Red Dawn call me names.

However, he lives next to a river near the Gulf Coast and complains about flooding. That's pretty funny by itself.

All you have to do to Red Dawn and Brother Watson is make a joke and they'll start foaming at the mouth and seething racial hatred. Reverend Miguel, if you ever visit Red Dawn's trailer in order to witness to him, don't mention the Old Testament. He hates Jews.

Brother Hez, I have been trying to get Brother Dawn to extend an invite to Jesus and me to his trailer. Obviously, an exercisim is in order, but I cannot do that for him. I will help him put his trailer up on higher blocks if he wishes.
