Remember the Alamo! By Charles Taylor
I particularly like this story, having spent a lot of my life working in Texas, and having been to the Alamo site many times. Jim Bowie is one of my heroes, but I suspect that very soon, the Bowie knife itself, one of the human races’ greatest inventions, will be condemned as racist, as Jim did a spot of slave trading himself to earn some pocket money, with his brother Rezin.
“Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush warned rioters who might be planning to target the Alamo in a tweet saying, “Don’t mess with The Alamo.” The Texas General Land Office is responsible for the care and safety of the Texas shrine. “The Alamo is the Shrine of Texas liberty. And it will be defended,” Bush began in the tweet below. “Rest assured we have already deployed, for several weeks and will continue to do so, the Alamo Rangers in partnership with the SAPD (San Antonio Police Department, The Department of Public Safety, and the National Guard to protect this sacred site.” “My message to protesters is simple: Don’t mess with The Alamo,” Bush concludes.”
What is interesting here is that George P. Bush, is the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush, and the grandson of the late President George H.W. Bush, and recently endorsed President Trump’s re-election bid, which certainly makes for an improvement over the rest of his moth-eaten family.
