    Chuck Norris to become honorary Texas Ranger

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/12/01...ranger/?hpt=T2

    He played one on TV, and now actor Chuck Norris is going to become an honorary Texas Ranger on Thursday.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry will present commemorative certificates to Norris and his brother, Aaron Norris, for their work on the series, "Walker, Texas Ranger," which aired from 1993 to 2001.

    The famed actor and martial arts expert played the title role of Cordell Walker, a no-nonsense Texas Ranger with an unorthodox approach to law enforcement.

    Norris and his brother, Aaron, were the executive producers of the show, which was filmed in Texas and used real Texas Rangers in an advisory role, Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela Mange said.

    The Texas Public Safey Commission, which oversees DPS, voted in October to bestow the designation upon the Norris brothers, "to say thank you for bringing honor to the department," Mange said.

    "The show reflected well on law enforcement in general, and on the DPS in particular," the commission said in a press release in October.

    The Texas Rangers typically take the lead in major crime investigations, unsolved crimes, public corruption investigations, shootings involving officers and border security operations, according to the department's website. They were formed in the 1820s under Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas," to protect settlers.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    It is a good show. I still like to watch the re runs.

    Good always wins out in the end. I like it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    He represented what most Americans stand for myself included. He was an old school kick butt ranger that didnt' take crap from anyone. Granted you knew the outcome of the episode bad guy loses usually from a round house kick to the face. He took on evil and made Texas a better place, on TV. He was my hero growing up and he could sing. (lol not really but he did sing the opening song to the show)

    Chuck Norris is so manly, that even the First Lady of Texas wanted to be next to him ( instead of her husband Governor Perry ) when posing for the official photo. Here is a photo taken just before the official one for his honorary ceremony:






    And tell me this: Why does Chuck Norris have a much better looking wife, when he is 10 years older than Governor Perry??

    Chuck Norris is just too sexy:
