I have noticed when the Outsiders move their mouth (or their mouse) I can almost win a sure bet that there is not much truth to what they are saying. One of the most incredible lies they are promoting is found in the annoying habit they have developed of leaving the people they are communicating with the idea that most local officials are happy they are here and are cooperating with them. Other than Henry Patterson, the soon-to-be former county sheriff, I think every official great and small would love to see them return to where they came from.
The most recent evidence of that is the challenge the city of Liberty is paying the legal bill for to keep Robert Valdez a/k/a “Cheech” and Eddie Shauberger a/k/a “Chong” from looking at records they feel no one has any right to see via the Open Records Act. But there are more examples in the past and unfortunately many more in the future.
They can “thank all of the public servants” they want to, but they unmasked themselves to active Republicans when they questioned the descriptive word “honorable” before a former Republican county chairman’s name and then insulted every person and questioned their patriotism that had no military experience (even those born after 1956 that came of age at a time when the military was downsizing at the end of the Vietnam War.
The Outsiders’ “investigations” are costing the taxpayers money (in legal fees and probably in ways only Patterson’s pay stubs would reveal). They are also insulting the voters. What exactly is it that Henry Patterson hired these people to do? It can’t be to win votes!
