Florida Democrat calls Texas a crazy state – yep, it’s good to be home [VIDEO]

Of course y’all know I’m in Dallas, Texas as the new President/CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, and it’s the primary reason I left South Florida after 11 years. However, just take a look at this video exchange between Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla) and Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Tx). May I remind you Alcee Hastings is an impeached federal judge and Burgess is a medical doctor.

Yes, I came to Texas to take a position leading a conservative free market think tank. but I left South Florida remembering Floridians keep re-electing individuals like Rep. Hastings.

Yesterday was Chris Kyle Day in Texas; does Rep. Hastings think that “crazy”?

There are many great folks and lifelong friends that I have back in the Sunshine State. But, I will never understand the mentality of those who continue to elect such individuals as an Alcee Hastings. This Tennessee Volunteer is glad to have followed the Lone Star that led me back to the state from which I retired from the U.S. Army 11 years ago.

Texas is one of the states which leads this nation in enacting policies that promote life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I miss my friends in Florida, and will visit them when I can, but I’d much rather live in a place that elects a Dr. Michael Burgess, than an Alcee Hastings.

As a NJ girl…I can honestly say it was the liberal policies that made me leave….I left when Florio was governor..he had enacted No Fault Insurance meaning…a drunk could hit you, kill your children and leave you in a coma for 10+ yrs and they could sue YOU…in my way of thinking, this makes the innocent responsible for the drunks actions…and in my way of thinking…only I AM responsible for what I do and you are responsible for what you do! Bye bye NJ…reap what you sow! I live in TEXAS where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness actually… Read more »

If Hastings had an ounce of couth, he could have stated his feelings about Texas in a much more acceptable way, without inflaming his colleagues. That he is an impeached judge speaks volumes on Florida’s voting mentality.

Kelly

Hastings is a typical low class gutter rat liberal.

bigMike
Guest

everyone has a right to their opinion, and sometimes that goes the same with a right to ignorance. I waste no time trying to convince others of my views, as I have better things to do!

Pam
Guest

That is not proper procedure for a formal meeting. If he wants to state his personal opinion he should do it on his own time.

bigMike
Guest

oh, I agree with you! too many politicians feel they can insult their fellow Americans, and somehow it is chic to lambast conservatives. A little bit of MANNERS goes a LONG way!

Pat Warden
Guest

Hastings is just another racist, welfare leech constituency idiot elected by lazy scumbags!

Scooter Tramp

“May I remind you Alcee Hastings is an impeached federal judge” and gets
elected to political offoce? Not surprising, Mass. elected and
reelected Teddy Kennedy and he was a murderer. (remember Mary Jo
Kopechne?) D.C. elected Marion Barry after getting caught red handed
smoking crack with a hooker. These are only two examples of the
stupidity of the American voter.

rickybaker

And, they’re all democrats in liberal areas. Speaks volumes to the character of the people in these areas! Low life scum!

Craig1748

These comments coming from someone like Alcee Hastings, wh is a disgraced impeached former Federal Judge……he was corrupt, speak volumes as to the mentality of the voters in his district.

Bill Carson
Guest

New tone.

Kelly
Guest

Texas is a VERY financially healthy state run for years by Republicans and the Democrats are red with envy!
Mr. Hastings is a crooked politician who just needs to fade away.

WARIII
Guest

Well, maybe blue with envy because they hold their breath like any other child until they get their way.

Kelly
Guest

You’re definetly right about that WAR!! They hold their breath and stomp their feet and stick their tongues out at those they disagree with.

JustLurkin

Kinda like lil preezy stompyfoot.

Alcee Hastings has been a disgrace to Florida for years. He must have been bribed to verbally disparage Texas. He is only 1 of 8 federal officials to be impeached in the history of the US (impeached for bribery). He was appointed by Jimmy Carter….yep, we are still suffering for Jimmy’s term.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Hastings….in office…West….voted out of office….nuff said!

Lou9999
Guest

Uncle Du-fuss, the elections have nothing to do with honesty and integrity. Alcee Hastings has an empty soul. He put his pocketbook ahead of his honor.

He is a sad excuse for a congressman. I can’t believe that you would defend a crook. West is an honest man who loves the US. That is good enough for me.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

And allen west has it? WRONG….Allen tried to bring up his opponents arrest record when he was a teenager and it backfired on him!!! Do not believe allen west is a HONEST person….a HONEST person wouldn’t post so many myths and outright LIES that he does!!!

Lou9999
Guest

So you are comparing what West said during a campaign tour versus Alcee Hastings’ convicted federal bribery charge? Man, that is rich.

And the myths and outright lies that West brings up somehow end up being true. Some exaggeration at times (just like every other website), but true. If you don’t believe that your libby websites exaggerate, then you are blind.

I see West as a Honorably discharged combat veteran….I see Hastings as a convicted, shady politician whose only worry is himself. Taking bribery money is inexcusable. Nuff said.

Hastings impeached, convicted and removed from office. West…still honorable.

Once again….Hastings in office…WEST took a job at a THINK TANK!!! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My instincts =were= correct; you ARE a troll. BLOCKING you, therefore. You’re waste of time & energy! CLICK!

Making more money and having more influence than hastings can ever dream of. hastings is a punchline and nothing more.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Wait…..you believe you have more influence at a THINK TANK than in congress or the white house?? REALLY?? Please tell me you are not THAT STUPID

whatthewhat
Guest

And none of Hastings’ bills made it out of committee. Way to have influence, alcee hastings.

whatthewhat
Guest

Uh, dude. Where do you think policy comes from. It ain’t from people like hastings. Even that abomination called obamacare came from a think tank. Idiot.

Uncle Ruckus

Lets see…..if you have the choice which would you choose?? WHITE HOUSE you idiot!!!!

Only if you are as narcissistic as the woman who currently resides there.

This born and raised Texan thanks you Col. west and again welcomes you back to our great state. My mom was born in Bon Aqua, Tenn and my Dad in Clearwater, Texas and it was like two waters mixing.
So Tennessee is entwined into my Texas DNA much like Davey Crockett and his Tennessee Volunteers are in the DNA of Texas.

How can Florida continue to allow this crooked piece of crap remain in office!

Uncle Ruckus

WHO?

JustLurkin

Alcee Hastings. Please keep up.

Bobwojo48

Elected because of the color of his skin and not the content of his character!

James W.

he has no character since he got impeached

Pam

Well that is certainly evident. People have totally lost sight of the fact that they are working for the common good of the United States and this is not their personal playground. What an a&&!

This is not good new. If everyone keep coming to Texas, then the liberal Digressive ideas will win over people in other states.

No wonder the United States is in chaos.

Texas has an 800 MILLION dollar surplus in the state coffers, Can Hastings or the state of Florida say that? NOW who;s crazy?

The sate of Texas and the USA should be very proud to have a person like Chris Kyle!!!! We need about 10,000 more like him and mybe these Islamic Idiots would disappear!!!! GO TEXAS!!!!!

gail
Guest

I don’t think I would want to live in Texas cause Muslims hold their Protest or whatever it was there and no Texans had enough guns to oppose these terrorists except one lone Texas woman that took the mic away from them. Sounds like Texans like to make noise, but that is all it is…..

CountryPatriot
Guest
It might have been unknown to Texans, unless you are talking Austin or S.A.. Did you ever hear the name Joe Horn? Shot two home invaders on his neighbor’s home and killed both. Our bigmouthed Muslim leader backed up by the Black Panthers, and ABC local news went to Mr. Horn’s home only to be met with 100’s of Harley riders. They quickly jumped in their News van and ran away. We do protect our own. And, to think peaceful protest is wrong, that right is guaranteed under our 1st Amendment. If they want to start trouble, I pity them.
Larry Miller

We may actually NEED them before Muslim obama completely destroys America.

We are very proud of our brother, Chris Kyle, rest his soul.

Enjoy Dallas!! There’s a lot to do up there.

Richard5877

The hotel was not in the city of Dallas it was on the the out skirts between Dallas and the airport.. I think…

Richard5877

I have been to Dallas a number of times and enjoyed it alot!! One time years ago I was staying at a hotel ( I can’t remember the name but it was a nice one with indoor plants and the walk ways that overlooked the area… I even met Glen Ford and talked to him for awhile about his movies… Great place!!!

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

I just moved to TEXAS!!! TURN TEXAS BLUE!!!!

CountryPatriot
Guest

Uncle: You will be run out on a rail, tarred and feathered before Texas becomes Blue. You must work for the Feds running illegals into our State and showing them how to get welfare. You must be a real Saint in your own mind. But, change what Texas represents, foget abotit!!

Uncle Ruckus

It’s coming

whatthewhat

Go back home, troll.

Uncle Ruckus

I like it here….TURN IT BLUE!!!!

CountryPatriot
Guest

Keep sucking that Gov’t Tiit, worthless.

ughhhh
Guest

And if you liked it you wouldn’t want to turn it anything. Go back to your hell home you already turned blue you freak of nature.

ughhhh
Guest

The only thing that’s blue is your nether parts I’m sure…from lack of use because you are not only an idiot. ..you are ugly as well.

whatthewhat

No problem. Wrap your belt around your throat and tighten. Problem solved.

Larry Miller

If Texas turns blue, you’ll lose your welfare check………no more skittles and beer, cause red states will quit feeding your sorry butt.

Uncle Ruckus

Welp…doesn’t matter to me because i’ve never received a WELFARE CHECK JETHRO!!! Now back to having relations with your sister!!!

CountryPatriot

What’s up, my Cracker?

whatthewhat
Guest

Thats not what your boyfriend told my dogwalker.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

and your sister told me she don’t like having relations with you!

whatthewhat
Guest

But she is related to me, unlike your dad and yourself.

JustLurkin

You need to live in NY or Chicago. That is where you’ll find your values.

MizRispee
Guest

The people of Florida should be incensed as well by Hasting’s diatribe since he grouped them into his comment about them being “almost as crazy”.

I love my great state of Texas. Whenever I travel out of our great country, and am asked where I’m from, it tickles me that just about EVERYONE overseas knows where TEXAS is. πŸ˜‰

Panors77

Some cities in Texas aren’t perfect tho. I remember one, (Austin? CRS) that actually put up a law/city ordinance ordering teen boys to pull their pants up. Anyone wearing their pants too low could be arrested and fined. WTF?? Of course I agree with the sentiment of getting em to pull their pants up, but a law?? Really?

CountryPatriot
Guest

Austin is the most liberal city in Texas to answer your question. Remember, only the liberals viewpoints are heard while conservatives are to just listen to the One Size Fits All of the Democrats.

Barto
Guest

If it requires a law to make them pull their pants up but it should come under “decency laws”!

Larry Miller
Guest

If I passed a law about pants pulled down like hoodlums, it would be to protect the person who slapped the s!#r out of them

Swishmeister
Guest

No city anywhere is perfect, just like no person is perfect. But slamming an entire state is stupid. California has a lot of weird people there but I wouldn’t denigrate the entire state. Florida isn’t perfect either.

Barbedwire
Guest

The point: there is no excuse for this disgusting Hastings – insulting citizens (even if it’s another state) – Americans – whom he is paid to honor and represent? He’s got the title and being paid to be a leader? His constituency should be ashamed, and should actually fire him – as previously impeached for many counts – HE SIMPLY does not have the character required to do the job.

How does an impeached Federal judge become a US Senator?

He is ignorant, and does not deserve to be in the position he is in!
What and arrogant, old fool! How do these people get into these
positions in the first place? Lately there is an epidemic amount of just
blatantly stupid individuals who have risen to take the top positions
that were once honorable in our nation! He should be one of many poster
children depicting insufferably stupid politicians!

Uncle Ruckus

Let my let you in on a secret…..its call a ELECTION!!!!!! Ask Allen WEst…..he LOST his!! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Yep. It’s what happens when welfare cheats like you are allowed to dilute the votes of people who work for a living.

Mr Hastings should stay in Florida. he would not be happy in Texas and they would not miss him.

We dont want him either.

Richard5877

They would probably use him for hog slop!!!!

ShamanBlair

The difference is multifold…First, WE have a brain, & understand what today’s Dhimmicrats are, & bother to check out their records. The low info state serfs lack all of that, so they just made racist votes rather than do serious study on BamBam’s scandalous record! Add their massive fraud (dead Republicans voted Demonrat for the first time, fake names were often used, people voted more than once, & sympathizers at the polls KNEW these things, but gave them a pass). It’s all on record–remember there was some district that was half & half Dem & GOP having shown up as… Read more »

Hastings is just representing the mindless parasites that keep electing him. Life is tough enough but it’s really tough when one is as stupid as an impeached Judge posing as a Congressional Representative and his electorate are beyond the definition of Stupid……..
