Pig Races on Fox

Pig races in Katy, TexasFox News has a video report on the Friday pig races at Craig Baker’s farm in Katy, Texas.

The story is based on the same local Houston reports that we used for our post last week, but this includes some new video footage that readers will find entertaining.

Fox gives plenty of talking-head time for the Muslims to present their point of view. Fair and balanced: we report, you decide!

In addition, they actually give Craig Baker a sound bite in this one.


Update: Commenter dm60462 reminds me that I should have posted a link to Craig Baker’s Pig Race website.

The caption on the video reads ...

Shop owner runs pig races for revenge ???

Revenge? Give me a break.

I didn't think I could accept justification for the recent Supreme Court's KELO decision - however - I will make an exception here.

The Baker family history with this land ironically justifies the potentional to comdemn the KIA community property.

[the Baker] "family has deep roots here on Baker Rd. Houston, TX. As a matter of fact, a Baker has been living right on this land as far back as the early 1800’s. We are fast approaching 200 years being settled on this piece of land. The Baker family has not always found it easy living here. In the 1940's the Baker family lost most of its land to the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers through a process known as eminent domain. The land was worth approximately $150.00 per acre, the Bakers received $3.00 per acre. Back then, the government needed the property to create a reservoir for the sprawling metropolis of Houston, which was some twenty miles away. This reservoir would allow part of the Buffalo Bayou to be dammed off in certain situations to prevent the flooding of the entire city.

The KELO decision
[http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geutt9aqJFLLMA3gdXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTE5cWhsZXNzBGNvbG8DZQRsA1dTMQRwb3MDMQRzZWMDc3IEdnRpZANNQVAwMThfMTI1/SIG=123re2hoe/EXP=1168358397/**http%3a//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelo_v._New_London]

does not require the government to take the property for government use. It allows for the transfer of land from one private owner to another to further economic development. The City of Katy must determine the best economic use of this property.

As Hugh Fitzgerald often states,

"the Muslim presence that in the Lands of the Infidels has everywhere created a situation that for Infidels is much more unpleasant, much more expensive, and much more physically dangerous, than it would be without that large-scale presence."

Reading further at the Baker website, he mentions that the muhammedan informed him the new community would include added 'security'. Why would they plan for added security - unless -they are planning security (aka anarchy) such as provided by the youth in the banlieus of France?


The precedent is set. It's in the interest of the current Katy community to encourage history to repeat itself - this time, against the KIA Community project.
