A Texan emailed me to say why he thought this generosity might be the case, at least as far as the US is concerned. I got Dave’s permission to post his view:
I’m another of those Texans who visit nearly every day. I sent a donation by PayPal and I trust you and the Baron will continue your valuable work. I don’t care about an acknowledgement of the donation, this email is about thanking you and the other posters at GoV.
Yes, there are a lot of Texans who read and support you. I think part of the reason is that so many of us are involved in the oil business and have actually travelled extensively in the Mid East, East Africa and the Far East. We have seen the fruits of Islam and we have seen the demographic jihad in Europe, particularly Amsterdam and London. I began to travel in the mid 1970’s and have visited/worked in more than 50; lived in five countries. I was in Cairo the day Sadat was assassinated. Back when there was a North Yemen and South Yemen, we used to go on top of the oil company’s compound and watch them shell each other. It’s far worse now that Muslims feel empowered and have the oil money. They don’t think we will fight back and they despise us for that. Arabs understand the exercise of power, it’s the only thing they respect.
My point is lots of Texans know from firsthand experience that Islam is the problem. Some of us are more vocal than others but you cannot see example after example for 35+ years and not be aware and wary. So by first hand anecdotal evidence a lot of other people in Texas have been informed by those of us who travel and work in the Islamic Paradises.
Best wishes to you and all others engaged in the anti-jihad.
That’s quite some “first hand experience” -- assassinations and civil wars. Good ol' Middle East, the place which claims that Israel is to blame for all of its problems. Just today, Insubria sent a news article about the 17,000 terrorists killed in Algeria since 1992. Hint: none of the terrorists were wearing yarmulkes.
In the meantime, others reading the list and not seeing their states on the rolls decided to remedy that situation. I hadn’t meant to start a contest, but I’m glad people chipped in.
Here is the most recent update on the states:
- - - - - - - - -
- New Mexico
- New York City
- New York State
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
- Texas squared
- Washington (state)
Last, but certainly not least, “The Sandbox” - our military currently deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thanks, everyone. This is definitely a case of “the more, the merrier.”
