When he gazes into the mirror, Lubbock County Judge Tom Head apparently sees the Lone Star State’s equivalent of the Roman military hero Horatius, or perhaps Wang Weilin, the “Tank Man” of Tiananmen Square.

During a recent interview with the local Fox affiliate, Judge Head was asked to explain his support for a proposed county tax increase. The money would be spent to hire additional deputies and to provide pay increases for the District Attorney and his staff – which is to say that it would help fortify the county government’s mechanism of regimentation and wealth extraction. In what may have been a moment of manic improvisation, Head insisted that the tax increase would be necessary in order to fortify the county in the event Barack Obama deployed UN peacekeepers to subdue Lubbock County.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN,” Head declared. When that happens, predicted the judge, we will witness “civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”

When faced with growing rebellion, Obama “will send in UN troops,” Head predicted. But fear not, beleaguered residents of Lubbock County, for Judge Head was rendered from the same mold used to produce the Alamo’s intrepid defenders. So it will be that when Obama swears by the nine gods and names his trysting day, Head will be there to hold the bridge against the heathen hordes.

“I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County, so I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here!’” Head told an interviewer who was visibly laboring to contain his mirth. “And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him. I said, `You gonna back me?’ and he said, `Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”

Although the prospect of a second Obama term is pregnant with potential horrors, we can round down to zero the likelihood that a re-enthroned Barack Obama would dispatch foreign shock troops in blue helmets to pacify Lubbock County. He wouldn’t have to.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    You are missing the point judge cops are not what you need. Veterans and the militia is what you need. You do not have the right skill set in any cops they lack the training and long term exposure to this. THe Vets been there and done it for real not a simulation or the police accademy. GO look at the number of trained vets that are in Lubbock and surrounding counties. THis is our home and we can and will fight harder than any cop who is in just for a pay check. I pity the jerks who try to take this area they are going to get chewed up and there will be no quarter given. Look at our lack of sucess in the sand box 11+ years with all the toys and we still have not beat them. And that is just a small place compared to the USA and 25 million vets who are here. Any fool that tries to take and hold us is going to get their butts shot off. Judge the vets get sworn in by the sheriff as his possee so it is all nice and legal. Would you rather have 20+ years expereince backing you or some meter maid who hands out parking tickets? The vets have the training/ motivation / and most have their own equipment. Plus the possee does not raise taxes. We do not need more donut shop commandoes. You can field a whole unit of voluunteers for the price of one or two donut commandoes (cops) would cost the people of this country in taxes. Any invader would fear the vet a hell of a lot more than some cop. Plus the motivation to fight is already in the vet this is HOME!
