There’s a Mayor’s race going on in Houston, but it’s not a race that’s given to the swift, but to the uppity. Both leading candidates are Democrats and in typical Liberal fashion, it’s all about the other person’s short falls. Houston voters are not getting the opportunity to weigh issues facing the city or the candidate’s remedies. They are getting a first class lesson in the uppity of politics.
Mayor Annise Parker, who, over two terms, really does have a lot to conceal, as to the city’s financial stability, but with heavy support from the uppity gay community, who could care less about Houston’s future, is slated to receive her third and final term.
Benjamin Hall, a former city attorney is the closest opponent to the mayor. Parker, in the latest polls leads him by 20 percentage points. According to the mayor’s uppity support group, Hall should just drop out of the race, because he doesn’t reside in Houston, but in Piney Point, which is one of those uppity affluent neighborhoods west of Houston.
Parker’s uppity support, claims Hall has a lien from the IRS for $500,000 in unpaid taxes. What’s the big deal, he’s a Democrats and like crime, they don’t pay. Does ‘Timothy Geithner’ ring any bells?
Good old fashion Texas common sense would highly suggest, the assertion is a lie. Hall still resides in Piney Point. Case closed, argument addressed. But now, the assertion does leads to a label of the affluent Black man, residing in Piney Point, is indeed uppity and not worthy of being Houston’s mayor.
Good old fashion Texas common sense would also take this uppity label further and claim, Parker’s campaign is painting a picture of a uppity Black man, daring to challenge the city’s first openly gay mayor.
Be all that, as it may, uppity, or gay has nothing to do with the city’s financial problems, which neither candidate wish to address. Houston is in debt to the tune of $4 or $5 billion and neither candidate so far, wants to address this.
Parker won’t debate Hall, which leads to the assumption, debating after two terms is beneath her, which is a uppity attitude. So far, there’s only one(1) debate scheduled. It should be a complete waste of time.
Hall’s only campaign issue so far has been the pay raises Parker gave her staff, while laying off over 400 city workers, and her newly established millionaire status since becoming mayor. So far, he’s only produced one(1) campaign ad and that’s not enough to be taken seriously, but it hints to an uppity attitude.
While all this uppity is being thrown around as if it’s a norm, where is the city? Good old fashion Texas common sense would suggest, underneath it all?
