One impression of Texas

I would like the opportunity to reply to Cherita Goodman’s letter about how Gov. Perry has made Texas the darling of the nation.

Perry’s “Don’t regulate ’em, let ’em go!” philosophy screams to all the business, come pollute our air, our rivers, our lives.

You can carry guns, work our people for minimum wage, get all kinds of corporate tax breaks, and in general pig out on our disdain for any government control.

We don’t pay any attention to the government, only God.

We are almost out of water, but what we have is yours to frack to your heart’s content, we could care less about those creeps who depend of the government and don’t brush their teeth.

Folks, if Ms. Goodman’s letter doesn’t awaken you to what is happening in this country nothing will.

— Gary B. Hicks, Fort Worth
