Skip to comments.Time To Boycott TEXAS BASED FIRMS
Posted on 05/26/2011 10:52:16 AM PDT by Snuph
Yep, I said it.
Because the Texas Legislature, in pulling their bill to stop the rape-scans and probable-cause-less sexual assaults in airport terminals, no longer deserves taxpayer funding and the only way to legally deny them those funds is to stop doing business with Texas comp

And do what buy from California and Massachusetts based firms?
Wouldn’t it be more sensible to boycott the other 49 who didn’t even try?
I didn’t know Karl Denninger liked poking his head up his ....
Because after reading this excerpt, I know he has no clue what he’s talking about. And I’m sure not wasting a click to read further.
What a perfect caricature of the circular firing squad that is the right. Bravo!
Message below sent to Sen. Patrick, Rep. Simpson and Lt Gov Dewhurst:
Dear Sen. Patrick,
I understand from press reports that Federal agents have threatened to impose a “No Fly Zone” over Texas, as has been done in the past and present to rogue states such as Iraq, Libya and Bosnia, and this threat is in response to the exercise of the duly constituted legislative powers of the Texas Legislature.
I am of the opinion that this federal threat is contrary to the U.S. Constitution, as per Article 1, section 9 quoted below.
Article. I. - The Legislative Branch
Section 9 - Limits on Congress
No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of
one State over those of another: nor shall Vessels bound to, or from, one State, be obliged
to enter, clear, or pay Duties in another.
I am further of the opinion that the regulations or policies imposed by the Secretary of Homeland Security regarding unwarranted searches and seizures of persons boarding aircraft are contrary to the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Accordingly I strongly support your efforts for passage of HB 1937 in defiance of federal threats of a No Fly Zone and air blockade. I further suggest that should the federal authorities make good on their threat, the Texas Railroad Commission should, in the name of safety and security, shut down all interstate pipelines carrying natural gas and refined petroleum products out of Texas.
You have my full support.
OK, you are today’s example of FAIL.
Is this your first time ever in attempting to post at FR?
You linked the website. Not the article.
The article itself is (bleep). But why did you not post the correct url?
You do of course realize that Texas PRIVATE companies have little if anything to do with the day-to-day operations of the Legislature there, do you not?
And all the other states are standing up against the TSA how?
What? Did the Texas senate not vote and put a stop to the TSA hand raping?
This is one of the dumbest things I’ve read on FR in a long time.
I’m beginning to think it was Snuph’s intent to post this crap and wreak havoc at FR.
Zot clouds are gathering.
As a Texan who works at a Texas-based firm, I am thankful that your circle of friends is so small that your “boycott” will have no effect. Nice try at logic on your part. Too bad you failed.
Denniger's bashing of Ryan is in the same league.
He's reasonably solid on economics, and he's sort of a libertarian, but, he's also sort of a liberal in wanting higher taxes and stuff. He's right on foreclosuregate, though, that plenty of bankster's need to be in jail. And right the US economy is f*cked.
You’ve obviously never been in the US Military ... where personal inspections are routine ... for a good reason.
They are the one state that actually attempted to stop this through legislation until they were buffaloed into pulling it by the strong arm of the federal government.
I wish they hadn't have pulled the bill, but why would you punish Texans for trying?
Mr Denninger is attempting, it appears successfully, to get the people worked up and press for the passage of this bill in my honest opinion.
I do not work for Mr Denninger nor have any connection to him nor his website.
Thanks for the post and good freeping to all.
Go easy on the young fella. See upthread. It’s clear Snuph is in too deep. He posted badly and can’t explain what he did or why.
Typical newbie mistakes.
Only a dumbass would believe that bill was constitutional.
The general consensus seems to be that:
Although your principle is good, your execution is a fail.
You are not really addressing the source of the problems, by such a boycott.
Maybe it would do more good if you ASKED OTHERS what they thought would solve the problem.
Just a suggestion.
By boycotting Texas companies like Dell and Continental Airlines?
How does financially hurting the very constituents who were successful in lobbying their legislators to bring forth this legislation going to press the passage of this bill?
This is the most outrageously stupid tactic I have ever seen.
I just want to know what a commentator is.
So you support the TSA pat downs? I don’t understand your post.
We at least tried. What has YOUR state done? Not even that much I bet.
It seems your post #20 is quite different than what your post #1 above was. You implied it was a good idea to withhold dollars from Texas businesses.
EXCELLENT!!! I take my hat off to Texas.
Karl smoking something this morning?
This does not make sense.
Good people don’t punish innocent others like this to get something done. This is something you see criminal minds do. They break into some home, grab the innocent women, put a knife to her neck, start cutting at her throat while she screams, to get the guilty husband to confess to something.
Or kidnap an innocent child and torture it to get the criminal parent to do something.
BTW, to be clear, my comentate (/snark) was directed at the author of the article, not Freeper Snuph...
actually we should boycott the 49 other states for not having the GUTS to at least propose this....
And only a dunbass would beleive the Patriot Act is not unconstitutional.
Good analogy! We eat our own for the slightest, supposed infraction.
My tag line still fits.
NO! From an earlier FR thread -
Pass the Bill into law - the TSA shuts down the airports,
Texas stops the export of all oil (= gasoline) to the rest of the USA!
Are you a spokesman for Code Pink?
Your idea of what a “felony” is unfortunately does not gibe with that of the legal system.
One really must use more than hysterical rhetoric to make a valid argument.
It is most certainly a felony in my state and Texas to fondle someone “private parts” without their consent!
It is also a felony in every state to fondle children with or without their consent!
Pat downs are not “fondling” nor are doctors’ examinations.
Are you going to have your doctor arrested if he gives you a proctological exam?
So them short-arm skivey inspections are for real for you swabbies? Don’t happen in AF.
And there will be more as the rest of the country crumbles.
Does the whole country rely on Texas to fix everything now?
We need the Karl party. He can vote for himself and win the nomination every time with a 100% mandate from his voter.
