Texas Mourns! ARSON!!

The Texas Governor’s Mansion was set ablaze by some miscreant early this morning.
For me, and other Texans, this act of depravity is simply incomprehensible, and I sincerely hope that as soon as the law of man punishes him/her, that the Good Lord will impose his own punishment.
The Governor’s Mansion first opened in 1856, a decade after Texas was annexed by the U.S. government, and has been in continuous use since that time, longer than any other state west of the Mississippi. It has a glorious past, has been home to numerous people of fame, and even more guests.
As a young college student in Austin, I couldn’t count the number of times I walked by, and drove by, the mansion. It was like an old friend, a link to our past and our future, and you could not walk or drive by without looking.
According to reports, this being one, the damage is nearly catastrophic, with the roof buckling, and they won’t know for certain how extensive or serious the damage is, until the arson investigation is concluded, and structural engineers can examine it.
Please pray for our beloved Governor’s Mansion, as it is a dear, dear friend to Texans.

  1. Damn. I hate to hear that a historic building was deliberately burned down. No doubt it will turn out to be some dumbass protesting global warming or something equally stupid.

  2. I don’t care why.
    I just hope they spend their last hours on earth with explosive diarrhea, pink eye, goiter, and a brain tumor.
    /as a minimum

  3. I just hope that they commit another stupid act and get shot for it.

    I like the way you think, when you get all cleaned up.

  5. I guess that’s the Texas motto. Just kill anyone who doesn’t agree with you. Very mature.

  6. No, Carl, this is the state motto:

    The word Friendship was adopted as the Texas state motto by the Forty-first Texas Legislature in February 1930. The word was probably chosen because the name Texas or Tejas was the Spanish pronunciation of a Caddo Indian word sometimes translated to mean “friends” or “allies.”

    However, we also know the meaning of the word criminal, which, obviously unlike you, we don’t have much tolerance for.
    BTW, you should reevaluate your own maturity, if you think an arsonist torching a registered historic landmark is simply a matter of disagreement.
    With your comment, I can now edit this thread, and add the “liberalism is a mental disorder” tag.
    And for being such a dingus, ESAD.

  7. Don’t blame Carl; he doesn’t know how to read.

  8. Yeah, he does, Swampie. I figure he knows that it was one of his leftard associates that were in Austin last weekend for the Donk State Convention, thus the “disagreement” comment.

  9. Oh. Dumbasses.
