Jasper Texas has the highest percentage of Democrats in Texas

Do you remember the horrible racist killing that occurred in Jasper Texas in 1998? The liberal media blamed George W. Bush as an indirect source. Why? Because he was governor of Texas. It was the horrid beating and dragging death of James Byrd (not related to Democrat Robert Byrd, the former KKK member).

Now the piece of the story that the liberal media, with Dan Rather as the ring leader and the Clintons used for fundraising and attacks on George Bush.

Jasper Texas is totally run by the Democrat party. It is a one party town. They haven’t elected a Republican since the Civil War. How much more of history has been rewritten? People like Bernie Ward, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Barbara Boxer and Al Gore with the unflagging support of the New York Times, got away with rewriting history.

Not today. Not any more with the free and independent Internet.

  1. Huh?

    Oh wait, this is one of those Bernie Ward analogies.

    Jasper has a high percentage of Democrats. Jasper had a racist killing. Therefore, Democrats favor racist killings. Now I get it.

    But first, Democrats want to nominate a black guy for president. Not sure how that fits….

    Ken, let me explain. It fits because my Web theme is about the distortions, propaganda and rewrite of history that the elite liberal media has been creating for the past 50 years.

  2. I know it is very hard for one like you to acknowledge the truth, but then your opinion is more valid than any facts because facts are for books, school boys and old ladies not for folks like you that are strong of will and know that truth is something you feel in your gut or dawns on you like a big red truck.

    Jack, I drive a Jeep, Land Rover and Hummer. What do you drive, a 1990 Honda?
    Education and hard work can still make a difference. Big Brother/Big Sis aren’t going to do it for you.
    Best regards,

  3. You know the good people of Jasper are very smart. They figured out a way how to vote against their own self interest long ago and in return they enjoy miseducation and poverty.

    Jack, you are so right. The good ol’ boys from Jasper haven’t elected a Republican since the 1870s, do you want to tell the readers about the KKK/Democrat party ties?

  4. Economy of Jasper

    The median income for a household in the city was $24,671, and the median income for a family was $32,242. Males had a median income of $28,432 versus $17,266 for females. The per capita income for the city was $12,997. About 23.3% of families and 28.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 34.3% of those under age 18 and 23.3% of those age 65 or over. Due to the lack of viable employment locally these figures are not likely to get better in the future.

    Jack, what is your source, the 1980 census? Did you know that Jasper, in East Texas is just a stone’s throw from Dan Rather’s hometown? Isn’t it amazing how defiant Yellow Dog Democrts are? Why do they hate middle class America so much? What do they have against corporations and small businesses? What’s the alternative, Socialism models like Cuba and the former USSR?

  5. Believe it or not, media is big business and big business means that media is owned and operated mostly by international corporations. Corporations serve at the pleasure of advertisers, investors and stock holders. They are more creatures of money than Party. Fox/Rubert Murdoch owns Fox News but also owns The Simpsons, American Idol and Married with Children. CNN runs Larry King and Lou Dobbs. Hollywood like Tom Cruise and Paris Hilton and Ms Winehouse, opera, hip hop and gangster rap

  6. Economy

    The median income for a household in the city is $24,671, and the median income for a family is $32,242. Males have a median income of $28,432 versus $17,266 for females. The per capita income for the city is $12,997. 28.4% of the population and 23.3% of families are below the poverty line. Out of the total population, 34.3% of those under the age of 18 and 23.3% of those 65 and older are living below the poverty line.,_Texas.html+jasper%22texas%22poverty&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=us

    Jack, thanks for the help. I believe you are helping me understand why Jasper has so many Democrats. Low education, low intelligence, basically rejects from society. Dan Rather was one of the few who made it out. But his hate for the middle class has stayed with him.

  7. Residents with income below the poverty level in 1999:
    This city: 28.4%
    Whole state: 15.4%

    Residents with income below 50% of the poverty level in 1999:
    This city: 14.4%
    Whole state: 6.7%

    Jasper city or county? You really are being vague. Let’s get back on topic. Jasper is a one-party town, Democrat. In fact, Hillary will have very good numbers in Jasper I believe. Are you a Hillary Shill?

  8. Of course your feelings about me have nothing to do with the facts of arguments about Jasper. Thanks for telling me how much you hate Liberals and Dan Rather, but what has that to do with the poverty rates of Jasper.

    Jack, I’m not mentioning my emotional opinion. (In fact, I am an Independent and was once a Democrat like you). I’m only listing the facts that are often edited from the stories of liberal media.
    Are you a Yellow Dog Democrat, Jack? Want to share with us what kind of emotions go with that? What are your feelings about President Lincoln? Did you ever vote for a Republican? I have voted for Democrats, and I’m going to vote for Obama in Tuesday’s election in Texas.

  9. What part of the poverty rate for the city of Jasper you do not like?

    It wasn’t the poverty rate per say, it was your cherry picking of Jasper County, (not city) donations to Republicans as you skipped over the cluster of Democrat Yellow Dogs in the city of Jasper.

  13. Income and Poverty in Jasper County, Texas
    When compared to other counties (and parishes) throughout the United States, Jasper County was reported to have a medium-low median income for households of $36,155 (2005 Dollars). The income level is 29.2 percent lower than the median in State of Texas of $46,715 and the median is 35.9 percent lower than the median for the rest of the nation, which is a reported $49,133.
    It does not get better for Jasper County Texas as to poverty:

    When put side-by-side with other counties (or parishes) throughout the United States, Jasper County, Texas can be recognized as having a relatively high poverty rate amongst the population, with a poverty rate of 18.1 percent of the individuals existing in families with incomes under the poverty level in 1999.


  14. Another name for Red States should be poverty and crime for they enjoy the highest crime and poverty rates in the nation. If you wish to enjoy a short life span chances are you will find it in the South (you will end your days in the Stroke Zone on a diet high in bad carbs, fats and oils). New Orleans and the Houston metro area are said to hold the hot spots for pollution and that’s because there is money to be made from oil and cancer.

    New Orleans is as you say, and worse, and it is a Democrat party hot bed as well. What is the name of the Democrat governor who is in prison for kickbacks? How about that Representative, you know, the one caught with $150,000 in cash from bribes in his freezer?

    Houston is also a Democrat hot spot. Mayor White is a Democrat. I think he’s doing a good job. In regard to oil companies, Houston has their corporate headquarters in 50-story gleaming towers, but not the pollution you are talking about. That would be your northern Democrat hot spots like New Jersey, where the former closet gay governor McGreavy (Sp?) was having random gay sex at truck stops along the Garden State Pkwy. He didn’t resign over that, it was over putting one of his gay boy toys on the state’s payroll that got him fired.

    Back to Houston, it is one of the fastest growing cities of the past 150 years. It’s now the 4th largest in the U.S. and has about 2,000 new residents arriving every week. Houston has one of the highest quality of life factors, weather like Florida, and is home to Fortune 500 headquarters, second only to New York.

    The tree-lined suburbs of Houston are Republican. That is true. On health issues, Houston was once called the fattest city in the U.S. by Mens Health magazine. What kind of study did they do? It was based on health clubs to people. They didn’t take into account the real body fat index of Houstonians, who enjoy 12 months of warm weather and is noted for biking and run/walking trails. In fact, Mayor White kicked-off the Houston marathon, which is usually the 2nd largest in the U.S.

    Today, I just ran a 10K along with more than 10,000 other very fit runners.

  15. Thanks for acknowledging that Texas enjoys one of the highest rates of poverty in the USA! I think it ranks right up there in the top 10. Say this about Texas it does not have one university in the academic top 10! Try naming 5 Noble Prize winners from Texas? Yes, you are right about that because Texas is about the have mores, the haves and mostly the have nots because most are the working class, the working poor and the just poor with visions of jail or more cycles of poverty

  16. Texas and Texans sees any form of community investments as either socialism, welfare or a necessary evil which is why they think prisons and executions is a good thing but public health care is a bad thing

  17. Is it true that book reading is not a very popular activity in Texas?

    Some books are very popular in the Democrat rat nest called Jasper.

  18. Just how many White House Admin and Republicans men and women have been indicted under Bush I and Bush II? LOL, I ran out of fingers and toes.

    Which Presidents have been impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives? Two, Andrew Johnson a Democrat who became president after Lincoln was killed by John Wilks Booth, another Democrat. Next, of course it was Bill Clinton. Had any manager, director, let alone a CEO of a major U.S. corporation did what Clinton did with an intern, they would have been fired, had a lawsuit filed against them and his company and he would have served jail time.

  19. Did Bush I run out of pardons for Iran Contra affair? How did you like Libby scandal?

    Jack, the Libby scandal was a perfect example of the elite liberal media run amok. Libby was guilty of what exactly? Next can you explain the Sandy Burglar scandal. He acutally destroys originals in the U.S. National Archives.

    Do you have a brain tumor, Mr. Snyder?

  20. The only president to leave office for high crimes was a Republican, Richard M Nixon. Both Johnson and Clinton served their terms of office as Democrats. Libby was tried and convicted for a felony by a jury and the holding judge is a Republican who was picked by president George W Bush. Thanks for making the case that president George H Bush did pardon Weinberger, and Five Others Tied to Iran-Contra.

    Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

    I stopped counting back in 2005, but there were 34 scandals from the first four years of George W. Bush’s presidency. Just how many men and women resigned because of scandal are have been indicted for scandal is know only to God. Others are not being treated kindly by history such as Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Duke Cunningham.

    Read on:


  21. In 2004 the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Inspector Generals (IG) in various departments of the federal government issued reports revealing fraud, mismanagement and corruption. Here is my list of the Bush administration’s Ten Most Outrageous Scandals thus far uncovered by government investigators:

    1. Halliburton’s Corruption. Nine different reports compiled by the GAO, the Coalition Provisional Authority’s IG and the Defense Contract Audit Agency faulted Halliburton’s performance in Iraq, where it has been awarded more than $10 billion in U.S. contracts. The government investigators cited, among other things, significant cost overruns, the overcharging of the Defense Department (and taxpayers) by $61 million, illegal kickbacks, failure to police subcontractors’ billing and unauthorized expenses at the Kuwait Hilton Hotel. The list of abuses will likely get longer in 2005, as multiple criminal investigations into Halliburton’s work pick up steam.

    2. Iraq’s Decline. In June 2004 the GAO provided a bleak assessment of Iraq after 14 months of U.S. military occupation, documenting that in critical areas like security, electricity and the judicial system Iraq is worse off now than it was before the war.

    3. Abu Ghraib Prison Torture. In late August Maj. Gen. George Fay released an official Army report charging that U.S. military personnel committed torture and that civilian contractors and military intelligence interrogators played a greater role in abusing prisoners than previously thought. The Fay report blamed “a lack of discipline on the part of leaders and soldiers” and a “failure or lack of leadership” by senior military commanders in Iraq.

    4. The CIA’s Pre-9/11 Intelligence Failures. Early this month The New York Times and The Washington Post reported that the CIA’s IG will soon release a report criticizing the CIA’s senior leadership for failing to “direct more resources to counterterrorism and inadequately analyz[ing] the threat from al Qaeda” before the Sept.11, 2001, terrorist attacks. For the first time, a government report will hold senior CIA officials accountable, singling out George Tenet and at least 11 others for “not liv[ing] up to the standards of professional conduct required of them,” says the Post.

    5. HHS’ Deceptive Ad Campaign. In May the GAO concluded that the Health and Human Services Department conducted a secret propaganda campaign that illegally spent taxpayer money to produce and distribute videos touting the administration’s Medicare prescription drug law. And this January, the GAO said that the Office of National Drug Control Policy ads warning of the dangers of drug abuse (aired just before last year’s Super Bowl) were a form of “covert propaganda” because they promoted their policies without identifying their origin. The ads, said one GAO official, were “paid announcements” at taxpayer expense that shamelessly sought to blur the lines between government propaganda and a legitimate, independent news feature.

    6. HHS’ Scully Scandal. In September the GAO found that HHS had illegally paid the salary of former Medicare chief Thomas Scully, who threatened to fire veteran Medicare actuary Richard Foster if he told Congress that the administration’s Medicare prescription drug legislation would cost $100 billion more than the White House figure. According to The Washington Post, “A 1998 federal law prohibits an agency from paying a federal official who prevents another employee from communicating with Congress.”

    7. Government-wide Accounting Problems. In December the GAO reported that the federal government’s accounting practices are unreliable and might not meet widely accepted accounting standards. The report gives the lie to GOP claims that it is a sound steward of taxpayer money.

    8. Sex Education Misinformation. A report that comes to us thanks to Rep. Henry Waxman revealed that most of the government-funded abstinence-only sex education programs were giving students false information. One curriculum rejects “the popular claim that condoms help prevent the spread of STDs [sexually transmitted diseases]” because it “is not supported by the data.”

    9. CAPPS II’s Failures. In February the GAO uncovered significant gaps in privacy protections in the administration’s passenger profiling program developed by the Transportation Security Administration. The Computer Assisted Passenger Prescreening System (CAPPS II) stored personal information in passengers’ profiles, provided inadequate appeals procedures and failed to safeguard the accuracy of its databases.

    10. The Real Costs of War. In July the GAO criticized the administration for underestimating by $12.3 billion the cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. This is part of a pattern of deception by the administration, which has repeatedly hidden the real costs of the Iraq invasion and occupation from Congress and the public.

  22. How do you like the 9/11 Report White Wash?, no one lost his job, went to jail but a few got medals and or promotions!

  23. How do you like the 9/11 Report White Wash?, no one lost his job, went to jail but a few got medals and or promotions!

  24. It appears that just about everyone with out a brain knows that the men that bombed America were not from Iraq!, that is men with brain tumors such as the Bush Admin do not connect 9/11 with any men from Saudi Arabia.

  25. newsflash on CNN just now – Admiral William Fallon, commander of US Central Command, has turned in his resignation, and Defense Secretary Gates has accepted it. The press, previously hypnotized by the Spitzer scandal, is furiously spinning to find out more. But early speculation will almost certainly center around this interview with Esquire’s Tom Barnett, in which the Admiral was portrayed as bucking the White House’s push for a showdown with Iran. CNN says:

    In a written statement, he said the article’s “disrespect for the president” and “resulting embarrassment” have become a distraction.

    “Although I don’t believe there have ever been any differences about the objectives of our policy in the Central Command area of responsibility, the simple perception that there is makes it difficult for me to effectively serve America’s interests there,” he said.

    That largely echoes what Fallon told the Washington Post’s Tom Ricks, when he asked Fallon about the article. Fallon called it “poison pen stuff” that is “really disrespectful and ugly.” Barnett’s reply: “The piece speaks for itself, as does the Admiral.”

    Here’s a snip from the story:

    If, in the dying light of the Bush administration, we go to war with Iran, it’ll all come down to one man. If we do not go to war with Iran, it’ll come down to the same man. He is that rarest of creatures in the Bush universe: the good cop on Iran, and a man of strategic brilliance. His name is William Fallon, although all of his friends call him “Fox,” which was his fighter-pilot call sign decades ago. Forty years into a military career that has seen this admiral rule over America’s two most important combatant commands, Pacific Command and now United States Central Command, it’s impossible to make this guy–as he likes to say–“nervous in the service.” Past American governments have used saber rattling as a useful tactic to get some bad actor on the world stage to fall in line. This government hasn’t mastered that kind of subtlety. When Dick Cheney has rattled his saber, it has generally meant that he intends to use it. And in spite of recent war spasms aimed at Iran from this sclerotic administration, Fallon is in no hurry to pick up any campaign medals for Iran. And therein lies the rub for the hard-liners led by Cheney. Army General David Petraeus, commanding America’s forces in Iraq, may say, “You cannot win in Iraq solely in Iraq,” but Fox Fallon is Petraeus’s boss, and he is the commander of United States Central Command, and Fallon doesn’t extend Petraeus’s logic to mean war against Iran.

    So while Admiral Fallon’s boss, President George W. Bush, regularly trash-talks his way to World War III and his administration casually casts Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as this century’s Hitler (a crown it has awarded once before, to deadly effect), it’s left to Fallon–and apparently Fallon alone–to argue that, as he told Al Jazeera last fall: “This constant drumbeat of conflict . . . is not helpful and not useful. I expect that there will be no war, and that is what we ought to be working for. We ought to try to do our utmost to create different conditions.”

    What America needs, Fallon says, is a “combination of strength and willingness to engage.”

    Those are fighting words to your average neocon–not to mention your average supporter of Israel, a good many of whom in Washington seem never to have served a minute in uniform. But utter those words for print and you can easily find yourself defending your indifference to “nuclear holocaust.”

    How does Fallon get away with so brazenly challenging his commander in chief?

    UPDATE: “Gates said in a press conference just now that no one should think the move reflects any substantive change in policy. That sure won’t be how Tehran sees it,” Spencer Ackerman says.

    The Iranians will consider Fallon’s resignation to indicate that the bombing begins in the next five minutes. If the new Central Command chief is General Stanley McChrystal, who ran special operations in Iraq until recently (read: responses to Iranian activities), that’ll be a pretty solid indicator that Bush is going to make the most of his last months in office. McChrystal just got a different command, but that, of course, was before the military’s most valuable combatant command just opened up. Teheran will look verrrrry closely at who gets the job.

    More reactions:

    * “This comes as a serious blow to any sane policy in the Mid-East,” says Sean Paul Kelley.
    * “We should probably put to rest the myth that the president ‘listens’ to his military leaders and relies on them guidance, as he often claims. The reality is Bush takes these leaders seriously, just so long as they agree with his agenda,” observes Steve Benen.
    * “Like other professional classes — lawyers and scientists come immediately to mind — the military officer corps is seen by the White House as a threat to its own Executive Branch hegemony,” adds David Kurtz. “That’s the key to understanding today’s resignation by Adm. William Fallon, the commander in chief of Central Command.”
    * “The media is speculating that this is another case of Shinseki-izing – getting rid of a dissenter. They are wrong,” retorts Blackfive. “At this point, that’s all I’m gonna say.”
    * “Stop hyperventilating: Fallon fired but Iran war not back on,” says Steve Clemons.

  27. Your rebuttal to Jack is nothing more than your opinion and is a very personal and subjective claim . Your position is with out objective merit, it is without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts. Some would say you are being irrational, but I think you are full of “truthiness.”
