Crazy In West Texas
This idiot is Lubbock County Judge Tom Head (pictured above). What did Judge Head do to toss his hat in the ring for the crazy crown? Well, it seems he wants to raise county taxes so he can hire some more deputies for the Sheriff's Department. That in itself is not crazy. The crazy part lies in why he thinks those deputies are needed.
Now he could have told constituents that they were needed because of the increased county population, or because of an increase in crime, or a need to cut down response time. Those are all logical reasons and would probably be accepted by the voters. But that's not Head's reason. No, he had to turn loose the crazy -- in spades!
It seems that Head is afraid that President Obama will get re-elected. And once he is re-elected, the president will turn American sovereignty over to the United Nations (although he doesn't explain how the president could do that). After that, Head said the people would revolt and the president would send U.N. troops to Lubbock -- and he wants to stand in front of "their armored personnel carrier" with his new deputies (and he also doesn't explain how he and those new deputies would stop a whole army).
I think Akin may have to work a little harder to keep that crazy crown in Missouri. County Judge Tom Head may well bring it back to Texas. The only thing that worries me is that Lubbock County is only about 100 miles from where I live (less than a two hour drive). I wonder if we could move that border wall the GOP wants to build just a little bit north of Lubbock. I would feel a lot safer.
A couple of questions for Lubbock County voters? How on earth did you elect this mental patient (and when are you going to lock him back up)?
