American politicians hide behind the palace walls

“Quit crying and looking for a handout” doesn’t have quite the same ring as “let them eat cake,” though perhaps it’s a little unfair to expect the mayor of a West Texas town to have the same lofty wordcraft as “a great princess.”

Still, Tim Boyd got his point across this week. In a typo-ridden rant, the mayor of Colorado City told his freezing constituents (or his former constituents, as he resigned either shortly before or after the Facebook post) that “no one owes you [or] your family anything.” He added that in the aftermath of the historically devastating Texas winter storm, “only the strong will survive and the weak will [perish]” — which would be a callous dismissal, even by French monarchical standards.
