According to the BBC, Texas has told the EU to mind its own business, in classic "Don't mess with Texas" style!
Word is, the hand wringing types in the EU want Texas to stop the death penalty. Texas has quite rightly told the EU to fuck off.
"While we respect our friends in Europe ... Texans are doing just fine governing Texas."
The right or wrongs of the death penalty aside, let them get on with running their own lives. When we live in a crime free utopia, perhaps we can try to lecture them on how to run their affairs. Until then, how about we try to get our own house in order?
