Giggle (Another Snoozer From Philip R. Klein)

Nothing new in the latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review, just more of the "same old think, over and over and over again:"

Like? Hi - welcome to Jefferson County Texas - where government is king? Where unemployment is the highest in Texas? Where crime is out of control? What is the purpose of the sale?

Maybe it could be? Na? Like welcome business? By the way your shoes are black and we need brown and you knew it so here is a lawsuit? Welcome business?

Please folks - this is just another song and dance to try and get MORE pork so that they can spend it and make you think they are doing something in county government.

The bottom line gang is this - Jefferson County is dying a long slow death. Rather than give a good shot of sense by making government smaller and letter the people and business keep their money - we tax them to death around southeast Texas. And crime and there are no real jobs.

If Philip hates Jefferson County and Southeast Texas this much, and if the area is truly dying as Klein alleges, why does he continue to do business here?

Ironically, Philip R. Klein missed this story on national fourth quarter home prices:

The largest single-family home price increase in the fourth quarter was in the Beaumont-Port Arthur area of Texas, where the median price of $132,600 rose 16.7 percent from a year ago. Next was the Bloomington-Normal, Ill., area at $159,300, up 9.6 percent from the fourth quarter of 2007, followed by Dover, Del, where the median price increased 6.5 percent to $212,500.

This puts Philip's statement from October 2008 in perspective:

Here is the bottom line...the homes values are topped out now. And there is no place to go but down...Jefferson County has been built on match sticks of hope. And the fire is coming.

Of course, we can always expect Klein to "stand up and say 'we' were wrong when 'we' are wrong."
