Small government has a lot of fucking bullets apparently.
I'm not sure any state shits on its residents quite like texas does
On that kid who ran over 6 cyclists rolling coal:
The Waller County District Attorney is now heading its own investigation and released a follow-up statement on October 11, which in part outlined its disapproval with how the case was initially handled both on scene and in the following days by the Waller Police Department.
“This case was not handled appropriately by the investigating agency. PERIOD. Despite being encouraged by the Texas Department of Public Safety to treat the scene as a crime scene and to contact the D.A.’s Office for advice on how to proceed, the investigating agency chose not to do so,” the D.A.’s statement read.
In its update from October 2, Bike Law also disclosed that it knows the identities of the 16-year-old driver and his 17-year-old passenger, and that the former’s local connections are “a legitimate reason for concern” over how the case was initially handled.
Ah yes, the old "if you didn't want to be raped you shouldn't dress like that".
I mean, that’s pretty clearly a joke
We get it you own the truck yard
big LULZ were had by all
No one said it was funny but truckyard always writes something cheeky on their boards.
I'm not up to date on Truckyard's board writing
I’ll get you added to the weekly newsletter
Thought it was owners of Railyard but it’s not. Railyard always has great signs but they’re still not open after remodeling.
If you were black they would cut it and send him home to you.
sitting here observing texas' race to the bottom is depressing.
It’s wild. What have they done/tried to do since 2020 to actually benefit any Texans lives? And not talking about those who sleep better knowing womens rights were taken. Everything is bullshit culture shit/whatever is going stoke the base.
i'm sure there is something. but the amount of shit they have done to hurt their constituents has vastly outweighed any good theyve done.
young Moroccan man dead for the crime of turning around in someone's driveway
His call to 911, “I just killed a man.” He was actually about to drive off when he was shot in the head. If this story plays out like it is currently being reported, it is going to be so fucking infuriating when this guy is cleared of any wrongdoing because of Texas’ fucking incompetence and downright racist tendencies.
He’s going to walk on that even though he lied to 911 and said the driver had a gun. As soon as they say the deceased driver’s name the entire courtroom will stand up and applaud because Texas is a shithole
Gotta stand your ground when someone is making a U turn
Or if it’s a child trick or treating
At the scene, police learned 35-year-old Monica Ann Bradford was yelling at children who were walking outside her residence trick-or-treating.
While she yelled at the kids, at one point, Bradford left her home with a loaded gun and pointed it at a 7-year-old, police said.
Wouldn’t have happened if all trick or treaters also had guns.
Gotta admit I’m really looking forward to them banning the wrong “Invisible Man” novel
Bae is a teacher and got an email saying:
As a result of Senate Bill 1444 passed during the 87th Legislative Session, Texas school districts may no longer offer alternate health plans alongside TRS-ActiveCare plans.
I have no idea the reasoning behind this and not going to research it as my wife will no longer be teaching after this school year but going to assume it's some bullshit until I'm corrected
Great segment today on NPR in regards to Texas electricity and winterization
1: plant in Waxahachie voluntarily winterized its electrical production facility following the blackout events caused by cold weather 10 years ago (fuck off people that say February was a once in a lifetime event in Texas).
2. plant failed to operate at even 50% capacity during February event, even though its implemented safeguards worked and plant experienced no equipment failures.
3. Production loss due to inability of natural gas producers to transport required volume and pressure to power plant.
4. State is pushing for electricity producers to winterize plants, but is allowing gas producers to opt out.
Long story short, kick the can down the road and wait until the next failure. They have placated their “head in their ass Fox fed news” base by saying “don’t worry, our electricity is winterized” while allowing their bell cows to keep their money in their pockets.
edit: might have been in Midlothian, one of the 2 cities.
Yeah I lost a ton of money betting on $VST because none of their plants went offline but they were fucker because they couldn’t get gas to them and had to buy spot electricity for a couple of days at the state max
A group of morons appeared on the grassy lawn jfk was killed believing he would be resurrected.
jfk, jr 2024!!!
This is extremely hilarious and extremely sad. I should get into the grifting business so I could at least profit off the stupidification.
So Prop 3 passed.
Going to be neato if there is an even worse pandemic and dumbasses still pile into churches. smh
honestly I don’t have a problem with this, the issue is that they can then interact with the greater society afterwards
the issue time and time again is they want the benefits of living in society without having to act like rational people or believe in the things that allowed us to build a society to begin with
A more Dallas thing there could never be

Deadly Parasite That Enters Body Through Bare Feet Is Spreading In America

A Texas community is dealing with the spread of an intestinal parasite that inhabits the guts of humans and other animals and excretes larvae during defecation.
The Guardian reports 16 residents in Rancho Vista, Texas -- located within an hour from Austin -- were notified that they were infected by Strongyloides after giving blood and stool samples to a noted university conducting a study researching the spread of the parasite.
The report confirms the individuals included a woman who was pregnant and a 2-year-old child.
Strongyloides are capable of contaminating soil due to a sewage leak and surviving up to three weeks. It's common for the parasite to burrow through the skin of a person walking barefoot, enter their bloodstream and lungs and rise into the windpipe, where Strongyloides are coughed up and swallowed.
The central Texas community was chosen as the location of a study given its previous widespread sanitation failure, poverty levels and willingness to participate, according to a scientific paper.
However, the town's parasite infection was previously unknown given researchers labeled it anonymously as "Community A" and residents are concerned no one capable of helping will lend them aid.
Rancho Vista has an estimated 400 homes on a small number of streets. Its population is mostly comprised of Mexican Americans or immigrants from Mexico, many of which who work in lower-paying fields, according to the Guardian.
Residents say that despite paying high taxes, the town still deals with packs of stray dogs, which play a key factor in the widespread of parasites and swirls of trash, creating an airborne smell of sewage.
Strongyloides are considered to be one of the most neglected soil-transmitted parasites as doctors who lack training in tropical medicine are unable to recognize them and aren't mandated to report findings to state authorities.
However, more than half a billion individuals globally are estimated to be infected, which includes detected infections in U.S. areas such as Appalachia and Los Angeles County.
Strongyloides -- though, at times, symptomless -- are the deadliest of soil-transmitted parasites as it's capable of multiplying throughout the body and causing death in individuals with lower immune systems.
Talk about your all time scare the whites article
hey fuck off! I hate wearing shoes
A couple of fun ones.
Beto apparently has better name recognition than Matthew Mccougnahey
Of the nine state or federal office holders, ted cruz is the only one not underwater with a 45-44 approve disapprove.
This state is broken
That sweet sweet freedom with its hand in your wallet
BETO IS BACK, BITCHES
Glad he’s doing this vanity project
to be fair to him, we are one year away from the election and I don't think any other viable democrat had announced. At least he makes it interesting, even though he will lose by 6 to 8 percent easily.
The alternative to Beto:
So everyone shut up and enjoy the memes
Beto is 100X better than the recycled tomato can the DNC threw at the VA governor's race.
Hopefully even if he loses he at least drags a couple people over the finish line like last time.
Are there any dems of note running for AG? That seems like they could maybe put that in play if they get the right candidate and spend some money
