I actually went to UT there, and the town is liberal, not the governing body of Texas, though, which is elected by conservos. There the governor wears a "secede from the union" tee shirt. If you guys wearing texas flag shirts want to see some real rage, just try it.
His manifesto read more communistic, but he probably didn't even realize it. Just like the teabaggers who rail against socialized medicine and chant that government should keep its "goldern hands off " their medicare, most of the Texas crazies really don't know what they are taking about. As a fellow Texan trying to survive in this state, I have a right to say, it's not the brightest light in the firmament. I am so sorry for the trauma to you guys in Austin.
I'm not sure but I think Austin had the very first mass killings on a School campus in the US. Charles Whitman in 1966 climbed to the observation deck of the UT Tower and started shooting people. Before that some dude in New York or Jersy went on a killing spree in his neighborhood not long after WW2, so this is not a new phenomenon! As a matter of fact our legislature was considering a bill that would allow college students to carry on campus.
I dont get it. Only one person was killed in that attack. My Cousin Vernon. I didn't know him, we were raised in different States. I dont think it's appropriate to ask; why just him? I dont wish other people had died. It's just hurts to know he was the only one that died. I just hope my family, that were close to him, gets some answers that will give them a little peace.
