Donkey-Powered Protesters Marched on Texas Capitol

Words matter in life. And the case of the the wild donkeys of West Texas is no exception.

If you call them “Wild Burros” you could be inclined to see them as scrappy survivors, emblems of the Old West. If you call them “Feral Donkeys,” well, then they sound like pests that need to be exterminated.

In Texas, what we have here is a failure to communicate.

No Fences on Perry’s Texas Border, but They Shoot Immigrant Burros

On October 18, 2011, during a Republican presidential debate, Texas Governor Rick Perry accused former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney of lying when Romney denied hiring illegal immigrants to work on his property. Apparently, Romney did hire a lawn company in 2006 that employed illegal immigrants, but he fired the company when he learned of the immigration status of its employees.

The illegal immigration issue is like a soldier’s sword for Perry, used repeatedly to slash at Mitt Romney, who is in favor of a border fence between the U.S. and Mexico.

Odd that Perry would argue against a fence when he fully advocates the shooting of “immigrant Mexican” wild burros that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department claims are sneaking across the border into Big Bend Ranch State Park.
