Visitors in Laredo

heading through the narrow streets of downtown... wonder how many who saw these trucks were actually English readers??

If they had arrived just a few days earlier, they would have been engulfed in all things WBCA and “preached” to hundreds more. By “they” I mean the California visitors passing out pamphlets and caught in my photos. I checked out their doomsday website and saw their schedule – if you missed them today, sorry, but that’s it – they’ll be someplace else tomorrow. You will just have to talk to someone else about why the world begins on May 21, 2011.

Three big ol’ sign trucks with their main message have been up and down the streets of downtown and the West side. I wonder if this same group visited the North and South sides of Laredo …

People can believe whatever they want to believe and put their money and time to what they think is important but… how effective is any campaign that drives around for one day passing out pamphlets from the windows of their trucks in an area with a high pedestrian traffic that may not even be English readers.

Whatever, though. They did what they thought they had to – as for me, I still support gay rights (since that seems to be one of the major issues that signals the end of the world according to their website). It entertained me for a bit while I followed them throughout the streets of downtown and up to Martin High School and the West side of Laredo.

    Sounds like an expensive campaign. At $3.00 a gallon for gas to propel those trucks, these people must have a hefty bank account!

      You know, that is what El Partner said! Did you see their schedule – started in California and are now in Texas. All day long from the morning until… last time I saw them was about 5pm, just driving back and forth. Maybe since they think the world is ending they don’t care about their bank accounts anymore??

    You know the bible is a Jewish creation the rest of us were not factored in .Like Texas history where only Anglo Saxons created this state ,Tejanos never had anything to with it.

    A friend of mine saw the vehicle in San Antonio. Waste of money on gas.

    At least changos are not fake unlike human beings who have a tendency to distort anything for personal gain.
