    "This election has changed the world for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community. Just as it is about transforming the lives of all Houstonians for the better, and that's what my administration will be about," Parker told supporters after Locke conceded defeat.


    I don't see how. How does being a lesbian equate to good leadership and how is it ground breaking? Maybe she thinks this is still 1950?

    She was actually my second choice after Morales, and was probably the least radical of the 3 leading candidates.

    Remember in modern America it's all about history making no matter the end results. My question is when we have reached the top of the victim /minority ladder where do we go from there.:2cents:

    That's when they'll bring in the Martians and gray aliens from Zeta Reticuli....there'll always be an "oppressed" people for the left/government to rally around.

    The real story is the pathetically low turnout. I wonder how many people that professed to wanting Morales actually showed up to vote for him? The Nov. election was decided by about 150K voters, IIRC. That leaves a lot of folks sitting at home bitching about election results. The runoff had something like a 16% turnout.

    Well, for gosh sakes, don't leave and make room for another d---yankee !
    We're about full of libtards in the major large cities moved in from elsewhere so hang around, go shoot some aluminum cans and pretend they are the enemy, preferably about six of them after you have slated your thirst....

    And yanks, if I stepped on your toe,'scuse me !! Just register to vote and help flush the commode called Washington come next elections, then you'll be an honorary TEXAN !!!:texas:
