BTW, I'm damn sick and tired of everyone living in a blue state being labeled a "godless liberal scumbag". There are a lot of us here who vote red, not blue. We're just currently outnumbered.
Before throwing stones clean up the blue voters in your own backyards, please.
I wish we could clean up the blue county to our south....Travis. But it is full of re-located blue state people.
