Seguin is in use as a city in Texas, just outside San Antonio.


And a beautiful part of Texas at that.

That stone thing that's named after the rental car company.

If you're going to speak of Texas history please pay it respect by knowing it.

Yeah, but the name's already taken in Texas.

Not even remotely the same.

It's just a name.

Changing it will in no way erase the past from history.

You are just being overly emotional.

But maybe your right?
If it gets changed it will cause your children to go hungry.
The sun will stop shining and rain will stop falling.
They will stop teaching it's history in school.
And all the babies will never stop crying because all the milk will turn sour in the udders of the cows.

You are freaking out because some people proposed a name change.
It hasn't even been changed. And most likely wont be.

But even if it is how do you know they wont change it to something equally historic?

That could be it, it's where Davy Croquet hung out with Jim Bowie, David's brother.

Wait wait, lol so because I called him a General instead of a Colonel, all the sudden I dont know my Texas history?

The state I was born and raised in, the state my mothers side was here long before anyone else came to.
The same state my Great grandfather was Texas ranger in the late 1800s?

My god man, calm down.

Ugh, please, take your bitterness and nitpicking somewhere else, if the fact I called him a General instead of a Colonel causes you that much aggravation , perhaps you have some other things to tend to.

It ranks up there with the pants crapped over Barrow, Alaska being renamed to Utqiagvik. As time goes on, name changes aren't the biggest deal.

I think lack of censorship is what would allow for a new name.

Pretty sure you can't change the past, Mr. Austin will be in the history books, and the museums.
Also the past has already been whitewashed, by naming a town after someone who wasn't really a fan of certain people.
Maybe remove the whitewash and repaint..
I'm sure they can retain their zip-code.

No, I think petitioning to change the name of a City , that has been there for generations, long before the snowflakes fell into it, is being overly emotional.

Chuck doesn't have real ties to Texas.

Where was your outrage when they changed the name from waterloo to austin.

All that history that got erased when they changed it should have mattered to you.

Don't you have an angry book to burn or a statue to topple?

I disagree.

This is virtue signaling.

It's pathetic.

In my humble opinion.

I don't do, nor do I condone such things.

But nether do I freak out when someone suggests a name change for a city.

Reasons.


Reasons are a thing.


Now if you're okay with this, then I'd have to surmise that you're okay with book burning, statue toppling.

'Kay?
