Houston...we have a problem!
So what’s up with that Houstonians? Why is she so “popular”?
I did not realize that Houston was bigger than New York City.
I no longer live in Houston but Parker has already won citywide elections as Controller and is the more conservative of the two candidates.
Also, her opponent Gene Locke has been endorsed by Steven Hotze which may have been the kiss of death for Mr. Locke.
Very sad the worst of the worst are running here.
What’s the big deal?
Nobody ever said Gay’s were incompetent or stupid.
What difference does it make if Houston’s Mayor is gay. she isnt hearing confessions or giving out Communion.
Just makes another city I don’t want to live in. And why are you apoligizing for her? We don’t need perverts in positions of power.
I would like to Judge people by their abilities.
However ,your response caused me to think more on it.
Can she separate that power from her homosexual lifestyle?
Kevin Jennings cannot. Barney Frank cannot.
I cannot argue with you on this , you say it crudely, but you could be right.
Houston, you do have a problem...
Mike Bloomberg is straight. Big time.
Houston is a big melting pot of hispanics (legal or other), gays, displaced libtard left-coast professional whites, blacks (oh sorry, african-americans), and a minority of normal people (i.e., any ethnicity republican-leaning conservatives). Just look at Sheila Jackson Lee (cell phone townhall queen - are you listening) and Al Green, who represent Harris County districts.
Taxpayers perfer not to live within the city limits.
Gives new meaning to the term Houston Oilers
This is disgusting.
I believe most if not all of the minorities that fled New Orleans after Katrina now reside in Houston.
Bloomberg is not the only mayor NYC has had in the last 30 years.
No, Houston does not have a problem as the city could have a gay mayor, a black mayor, a white mayor, a Hispanic mayor, a Republican mayor or a lesbian mayor and Houston would remain as one of the best large cities for business in the country.
In Houston, property values have remained stable, unemployment is lower than in other large cities and the city is growing.
I grew-up in New Orleans and now live in Austin. In the days after Katrina , I had around 35 people, friends, family and friends of family and friends at my Austin home.
With a dozen or so cars with Louisiana plates in front of my house, I dad strangers knocking on the door offering food, money clothes and extra rooms in their homes.
Restaurants gave us large gift certificates and bars gave us bar tabs.
One guy who I had never met found my email and asked me how many people we had at the house. The next day he was in front of my house with his smoker full of brisket.
When the Louisiana people asked me why they were helping us like that, all I could say is, “This is Texas and that is what we do when our neighbors are in trouble.”
“No, Houston does not have a problem as the city could have a gay mayor, a black mayor, a white mayor, a Hispanic mayor, a Republican mayor or a lesbian mayor.....”
Um, what do you think she would do if a bill requiring that kindergartners be required to learn about the homosexual lifestyle, with no opt out for religious parents? What do you think MS. Parker would do if a bill came across her desk budgeting out millions of dollars to have GLSEN conduct “workshops” for 5 to 7 year olds to become familiar with the gay lifestyle purportedly so they will not become haters?
Ya I am sure she will check her “lesbian” hat at the door and do what is right for the children of Houston.
You are either really naive or a troll, but either way it looks like Houston is going to have a BIG problem.
You really don’t see any problem with a sexual deviant being in authority? hmmmmm
Um, the mayor of Houston has no jurisdiction over schools.
“What do you think MS. Parker would do if a bill came across her desk budgeting out millions of dollars to have GLSEN conduct workshops for 5 to 7 year olds to become familiar with the gay lifestyle purportedly so they will not become haters?”
Um, the mayor of Houston does not sign bills into law, but simply has a vote on the city council.
