THE MALCOLM X YOU DO NOT KNOW. HE IS ACTUALLY ARGUING THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM ON CHANGING THE LIVES OF AFRICAN AMERICANS, BUT YET HE IS VILIFIED BY THE REPUBLICANS

We believe the lies because it justifies our ignorance.  I hate social media so much because any poorly educated troll can post anything.  I blame the bloggers for this.  Brownsville blogs have no credibility, because at least three are bought and paid for, and only the BV moderates it comments to keep out the trolls.

Yesterday an anony poster on Montoya's page concerning the runway attacked me with a level of ignorance which is surreal.  The comment never should have been approved.

Here are the undisputed facts.  The BV has written more articles on the airport and runway than anyone else.  On face means nothing in terms of the totality of  the facts.

This troll seems to think Texas can just pass a law to take away the homes of 41 people.  How many years was Bush II stuck in federal court to properly compensate the land owners who property values would be destroyed by the wall.  No matter what this troll thinks Texas can do, the federal constitution still trumps Governor Abbott and the idiots who agree with him.

Its been a year since Mike Hernandez told me about the problem.  The airport director called Mike a liar.  So I decided to wait an see.  I reported on it - no progress on the airport and runway - what maybe two weeks ago.

If the city new about this problem with the homeowners a year ago, why did they not start eminent domain a year ago?  No money.

They need money to compensate 41 homeowners, based on what the court will order after probably 5 years of litigation.  Who is going to pay for the city's attorney to defend the lawsuit which will be filed?

Slander of title - this is called knowledge something the trolls hate.  In poorer communities it is not unusual for a parent to die and then a son or daughter moves into the house.  Nothing is ever probated and no change of title is made.  So the house belongs to all of the rightful heirs of the parent.  To fix this the city will have to locate all of the rightful heirs and negotiate with them or be held liable at a later date when one comes forward.  I have worked on these cases.  There are three siblings, two have died and they each had 5 kids.  So now the house belongs to the surviving child and the 10 grandchildren.  But wait if the house was jointly owned by the husband and wife, and the wife never probated the will which have her sole ownership, not the house belongs to her son, 10 grandchildren and the parents or brothers and sisters of the husband and any children they may have had.  

None of this is handled when people;e die because there is no money.  It will cost the city more to fix this mess than the value of the house.

I just went through this with my brother  Our step mother never had the will probated after her husband died.  So when I sold his property, the title company would not issue title insurance because the acre he inherited next to is land half belonged to the heirs of the husband of our step mother.  We had to lower the price to get the new buyers to sign a waiver concerning the title on the acre of land.  

So riddle me this if the city has done nothing for a year, what makes this troll think they now have the money.  

How long will Space X wait.  They are not going to complete the launch pad until they know the runway will move forward.  That is at least 5 years away, assuming the city can raise the money.

I BEGAN WITH MALCOLM X BECAUSE REPUBLICANS OUT OF IGNORANCE LOVE TO HATE HIM EVEN THOUGH HE AGREED WITH THEM AS TO HOW TO BRING BLACK PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY

Ignorance is the major obstacle to progress.  The local blogs love to promote it.  They refuse to moderate the ignorant comments.  In my opinion no politico in Brownsville or Cameron county does more to hurt us than the bloggers and other forms of social media.

I don't know if you are correct or not but it doesn't explain why SpaceX continues to spend money at Boca Chica. The obvious stuff is that they have moved in a tracking antenna (moved from Cape Canaveral) and have even begun to landscape the area around the future control building. They have also moved in components for other structures. The various environmental studies also continue. So, I don't know. My hope is that the cancel the whole thing, remove the fencing and level the launch area, restore the parking lots to their previous state and go away.

Great substantive comment. The state just gave them another installment of funds promised by the State. I personally want Space X if it really means the 10,000 liner foot runway. The runway will mean a lot of import export related jobs for Brownsville. But I will not deny I originally opposed it because Boca Chica is a gem which should not be messed with.

Here is the deal, Space X wants the state funding to continue. What you describe can mostly be done with the state money. It could end up being a tracking station. They have to keep up an image. Space X did not get where it is today by investing in failed projects. They need the runway. The matching federal funds will not pay for the 41 homes and all of the litigation. They still need to find the money for a lawyer and to pay the amount ordered by the court. The city has no idea who much money displacing 41 families will cost.

Now there is another issue, the airport director told me they had to redo another runway first before they could extend the runway which will be used for the 10,000 linear foot runway. He could not give me a date for either runway.

How long will Space X wait? They made it clear from day one they need the runway. Brownsville has not been able to find the money. i was told about the moving of t he 41 families a year ago. What has Brownsville done to start eminent domain process in the last year. They lost an important key year.

Space X in the end may be happy with a tracking station.

No one in their right mind trusts the Airport Board. Frontier a discount airline spent a year looking for 21 new markets. Brownsville was perfect because it would be a discount airline sending passengers west - expecially skiing in Colorado. Brownsvile=le could not close the deal so Frontier looked to other small communities.

The basis question is, since Space X decided on Brownsville Brownsville knew they had to move these 41 families. In all of that time they did nothing to start the process. This undeniable fact should raise a red flag which demands answers.

But a great post - the kind of post which makes BV better - thanks.
