You just have to love Texan's and their attitude. ! I am sorry for any serviceman who isn't treated with the respect that is due. The military is where a lot of us got our best education, ie. The Universities of Fort Jackson, Fort Benning, Fort Bragg, etc. It wouldn't do for me to be a game warden, I would be selectively giving breaks where the law isn't clear or fair. I'm not downing "Rabbit Sheriff's", they have one of the most dangerous jobs in law enforcement, I just don't have the temperment to be one. I would be a selective SOB and the bureaucracy wouldn't like that.
My State, NC, is by and large conservative but we have Chapel Hill and Duke and a few very liberal big cities that dominate the State House. We keep sending liberals back to office and they do what liberals do best, tax and spend, try to take our guns, and stick liberal agenda's into regulations.
I reached the age finally where I could afford a Life Time License and come to find out illegals were given the privedge free with no understanding of bag limits, or seasons whatever. We also have "motor voter".
I have nothing against legals, my daughter in law has a green card. She follows the rules, which are difficult and time consuming. It irks me that those who swim the river, jump the fence, and so forth are given preference. My daughter in law has a pHd and will contribute greatly to this Country.
Now, the liberals want to give free college education to illegals in NC, it hasn't passed so far. My wife and I worked hard to send our two sons to college.
I'm way off topic, sorry, blame it on my age.
All Military Folks including retirees should get a free pass in every State on licenses, taxes, everything the State levies, across the board. No I didn't make a career of the Military but I know of the sacrifice that they have to make during a career to keep the rest of us safe.
