So . . . Who Do We Vote For? The Woman or the Canadian?

In presidential politics, I had thought that this question would have been impossible given the stipulations found in Article II Section 1 of the United States Constitution:

“No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President”.

Last I looked, Canada was still a part of the British Commonwealth (not a real country), and as such, neither its citizens nor those born there and naturalized in the United States are eligible to be President of the United States.

Why then, is this question even asked?

Truth to tell, those that would consider either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama as a presidential choice would not actually ask that question in those exact words, so this whole posting is somewhat moot.

Nevertheless, it underlines a very evil presence we still have here in The South, in Texas, and even in what has come to be regarded as a cosmopolitan Houston, Texas.

Neanderthalian mouth-breathing knuckle-draggers still abound down around these parts. And they still exist in government offices. Felony prosecutor Mike Trent has had his email read lately, email that reveals that Trent is a purveyor of a brand new neoracist codeword for a person of African-American descent. A black person. A n…, a ni…, well, you get the idea. In other words “a Canadian”.

In Trent’s own words, from The Chron:

“The note starts out innocently enough, with felony chief Mike Trent praising the work of prosecutor Rob Freyer for convincing a ‘weak jury’ to give a man a stiff sentence for intoxication manslaughter.”

“ ‘He overcame a subversively good defense by Matt Hennessey that had some Canadians on the jury feeling sorry for the defendant and forced them to do the right thing.’”

Fellow Texans, this is a man who works every day bringing those accused of felony crimes to trial and conviction. His racial bias is not even in question. Nor is, by association, the entire Harris County District Attorney’s office.

If not, I ask this: why is this man still getting a paycheck from the county?

There may be those of you that need a re-education on what a Canadian is, granted a Canadian can be a Black person, God knows the South made a whole bunch of Black people Canadian citizens in the years before the War of the Northern Aggression.

Here is what a Canadian is:
They like beer, preferably Molson’s or Labatt’s, and instead of “beer” they say “beers”. They say “ay” a lot when they mean “right?” or “did you hear me?” They say “oot” when they want to go “out” and they live in a “hoose”. They work on PROH-jects, not PRAH-jects. Sometimes they speak French, but not according to someone from France. They have health care. They laugh at Americans who try to pass themselves off as Canadians when they travel overseas so they don’t get treated badly by the locals. They are also known to subvert our children. Their heads flap around and they have little beady eyes. They are for everything that mothers are against.

That’s right, that’s right, the dad-gummed Canadians!

Yeah, but as we all know, Phil Collins came home with the gold. Probably because of that word, huh?
