Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Thank God For Texas!

At least one state in the union hasn't subsumed to complete insanity (though it too has its share of Leftists).


A Mexican killer is dead, having been executed by the State of Texas, after losing his appeal (another 5-to-4 decision) to the US Supreme Court.

No tears; just cheers.

From the UK Guardian:

Humberto Leal Garcia executed in Texas despite White House appeal

State governor Rick Perry rejects call from Barack Obama to spare Mexican's life to protect US interests abroad

Overall, I think I'm starting to like this Rick Perry guy.

Again, from the Guardian:

Texas has executed a Mexican-born man after the US supreme courtand the state's governor, Rick Perry, spurned appeals from Barack Obama to spare the convicted murderer's life in order to protect US interests abroad.

Humberto Leal Garcia was executed by lethal injection for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl despite appeals of senior diplomats, military officials and prominent politicians who said the execution could jeopardise the lives of Americans.

Shortly before Leal was led into the death chamber in Huntsville the supreme court rejected by 5-4 an appeal from the White House to block the execution on the grounds it was in breach of an international convention governing the treatment of foreigners who are arrested and would therefore do "irreparable harm" to America's interests.

Let's be candid here, shall we?

Humberto Garcia has been in the United States since he was two years old. He's as much of a Mexican national as Roman Polanski. He purposely chose to stay in the country, live here for years, and then break our laws. He somehow, simultaneously, didn't mind making his money here, living here, enjoying our rights and protections. Then, somehow, magically, mystically, he wants to fall back on being a Mexican national after raping and murdering a 16-year-old girl; he was found with her blood on his hands, his clothing.


HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- Texas executed a Mexican citizen Thursday for the rape-slaying of a teenager after he and the White House pleaded in vain for a Supreme Court stay, saying he was denied help from his home country that could have helped him avoid the death penalty.

In his last minutes, Humberto Leal repeatedly said he was sorry and accepted responsibility.

"I have hurt a lot of people. ... I take full blame for everything. I am sorry for what I did," he said in the death chamber.

"One more thing," he said as the drugs began taking effect. Then he shouted twice, "Viva Mexico!"

There you go, Mr Garcia. "Viva Mexico!"

I say: "Viva Tejas!"

Ya have to wonder about what the White house chooses to spend it's time on. the economy can go to hell, terrorist nations can build nuclear weapons and threaten us, and all that's just fine. but, Texas goes to (rightly) off a sadistic bastard who raped, tortured and killed a teenage girl and they're in an uproar.

What did it cost U.S. taxpayers to finally make this guy assume ambient temperature?
They should have fed him to some carnivore.

Good on Texas!

Knowing the details of this crime, I believe that the death penalty was postponed far too long.

PS: A word of explanation as to why I don't visit your site every day, BZ....For whatever reason, my old laptop crashes when I try to load your site. I can access your site only via my desktop, which is in my upstairs office, a place as hot as Hades in the summer heat.

I waited, watched the clock, heard the announcement.
The only thing better for me would of "the dimming of the lights" when Huntsville Prison threw the switch.
But alas, they now use injections.
I saw a hanging when I was a little tot. KA-BANG sounded the trap door.
This Mexican citizen killer got what he deserved. Death.
But, if it was me, I'd stake him out on a big ole Texas ant hill,sit back in my folding chair and listen to him plead, and when he did, I would hold up a picture of the 16 year old Texas girl he savagely raped and killed in San Antonio, and then calmly open up another ice-cold beer and watchthe ants eat him.

Yes Sir, Another one bites the dust. His attorney haf the cajones to say that if his client had received consular services, he would have been able to prove his client innocent.
Too late, his client confessed right before he was given the TEXAS COCKTAIL.

Next!

Wasn't it Ron White that said
"Other states a murderer can wait on death row fer years. Hell,in Texas, we got a express lane."
It usually brings a round of applause.
