Watching the public meeting and listening to James speak was pretty cool to see a TFF'r representing. Besides him, Speedy and Jared I felt like I was watching a CNN news story. The county officials had zero logic or reasoning. Pretty sad to see an entire lake shut down. Was planning on heading down this week.

That "Public" meeting was anything but. They only let a select few into the room, then instead of hearing comments about opening the launch in a timed and orderly fashion they had an informal discussion with lots of cross talk among the commissioners and the select few, with personal issues even coming into play. And then the Judge decided that "we have have heard enough about the launch" leaving me and 5 or 6 others who had signed up to speak out in the hall. It was the most unprofessional meeting of any kind that I have ever been to. And the BS that was coming out of the Judge's mouth was as moronic as I have ever heard from anybody, let alone the top elected official of a County.

The Judge knows if he follows the leader his job will be safe. So, the decision had nothing to do with logic and everything to do with saving his job so he can continue to live a nice lifestyle.

Vote the Commissioners and Co Judge out during the elections in November.

BTW I sent the Judge's office an email quoting my above post (except for the last line with the BS part).

Pretty rare to see James too angry to write but he is here.

Those wacky politicians.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Love the stories James. I've never been to Falcon Lake but would really like to go one day. Keep up the good fight. Right now, everyone is trying to shut something down so they can say "we tried". And, you are correct, none of those jack wagons are going to miss a paycheck until they are voted out.

These are crazy times for sure.......

Do you really think the entire lake is shut down? Are the Mexicans going to stay off the lake?
