Yesterday Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said he was "all in" concerning gun control and is fully behind Obama. I responded by emailing the Mayor, and posting this on his facebook page.

(in case you don't know, Mike Rawlings was Pizza Hut's CEO before he was elected Mayor)

Mayor's speach for reference

In light of Mayor Mike Rawlings most current comments regarding his anti 2nd amendment stance I will spend every extra penny that I have supporting any future candidate that opposes Mayor Rawlings. I would like to remind the Mayor that he has taken an oath to defend the Constitution, and his current actions are in direct opposition to his oath. In case Mayor Rawlings has forgotten his oath, I have copied it here for his benefit.

“I, Mike Rawlings, do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office of Mayor of the City of Dallas, of the State of Texas, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this State, so help me God.”

If you do not like the 2nd amendment there is a process for changing it, it is the 5th article of the constitution. It explains that if you wish to alter an amendment, revoke an amendment, or add an amendment you need the following:

Super Majority of Congress (66%)
Super Majority of the Senate (66%)
And 3/4ths of the states must ratify the amendment (38 states)

I guess being a Pizza Hut employee really doesn't teach you constitutional law, or even basic government.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings won his last election by a slim margin in a run-off election where he didn't even have an opposing candidate from the opposite party. Perhaps he should remember that, because a real opponent could be lurking in the shadows for the re-election.


I included this video:

Meh, I haven't eaten Pizza Hut in like 12y. When I look back to when I stopped eating there it coincides with Mike Rawlings taking over as CEO of Pizza Hut. Correlation not causation and all, but interesting none the less.

The good news for people of Dallas is that Texas has pre-eminence of all state laws over city laws. can't end up with a Chicago or DC or NYC here in Texas.

Et tu Dallas Mayer?

It doesn't surprise me when these fucks do this shit in NY, but in TX. I hope you throw that bum out.

Our man downtown will soon be our man in prison if the FBI pins him with the shit they are trying too.

Screw him.

Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin are all shit heaps of liberal "gimmie gimmie gimmie" fookers all wanting free sh!t. Those big cities are just as lost as detroit or chicago. fortunately more Texas voters exist OUTSIDE those cities.

I like the comment

The bigger the city is the stupider the mayor.

Dallas is really hit and miss on good mayors. I see his run as mayor a short one. A few weeks ago he came out saying the city will no longer allow gun shows in city buildings. Now this.
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 7:42:26 PM EDT
Ann Richards went that route too, how did that work out?
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 7:43:37 PM EDT
FUCK EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE about Dallas politics!

Link Posted: 1/21/2013 7:44:21 PM EDT
I'm just surprised that we have a mayor not currently residing in club fed.

Worked at a P-Murphs for 3 years in high school... the fact that I still eat it at least once a month should tell you all you need to know

Valid. I think every time a mayor is about to do some iffy. J Wiley does some thing outlandish, and distracts the media, so the mayor goes unnoticed.
