It’s Yachtville, Texas.  I have no idea how the people in Lubbock or Amarillo are going to recover from tough times.

House Committee Approves Tax Break for Yachts

Villarreal Criticizes Move as Legislature Cuts Education and Nursing Homes

Austin – Today Rep. Mike Villarreal (D-San Antonio) strongly criticized the House Ways and Means Committee for approving a tax break for yachts at the same time that the Legislature is proposing drastic cuts to education, nursing homes, and other basic services. Yesterday the Committee, of which Rep. Villarreal is a member, approved HB 2187 by Rep. John Davis (R-Houston).

“With all due respect, sometimes I’m not sure what planet my Republican colleagues live on,” said the flabbergasted Representative. “How can they say tax breaks for yachts are a higher priority than supporting our children’s classrooms or keeping nursing homes open?”

And no damn whining from you people on the coast.  I went to Galveston at Easter and dropped a hunk o’ money at Gaidos and on The Strand.  Besides, Tilman Fertitta is spending the same amount of  money in Kemeh and Galveston that it would cost to wallpaper Italy.

Big Buddy’s Cut-rate Yacht Warehouse in Odessa is doing just as good this year as he did last year.  But, West Texas is burnt crispy.  I ain’t concerned about people with too much water on the Texas coast right now.  Don’t irritate me.
