    FYI this is being framed on all local news outlets as democratic leadership being incompetent. The election clerk was already forced to resign. We are now using paper ballots because of new state voter laws and it’s a total shit show.

    For example:

    The wife and I will be participating in a workshop to help families prepare for how to deal with this if the courts allow it to stand. I kind of think it was just primary election BS but the families this impacts rightly take these kinds of things very seriously.

    Wait, does this fall under “doing a capitalism” or “doing a small government?” Because those are unalienable tenants of Texas and Republicans.

    I saw Cornyn said the other day he thinks weed is dangerous and needs to investigate the dangers to women and children. Valid point. I can't imagine there is any research out there to know for sure. Nor would we have any confirmed dangerous substances like alcohol or tobacco readily available to the public.

    This had me google the case, which then lead me to another article about a woman getting the lethal injection in Jan '21 and I came across this line: As a curtain was raised in the execution chamber, Montgomery looked momentarily bewildered as she glanced at journalists peering at her from behind thick glass.

    She tapped her fingers nervously for several seconds, a heart-shaped tattoo on her thumb, showed no signs of distress, and quickly closed her eyes. As the lethal injection began, Montgomery kept licking her lips and gasped briefly as pentobarbital, a lethal drug, entered her body through IVs on both arms. A few minutes later, her midsection throbbed for a moment, but quickly stopped.


    Not sure I knew or realized but are executions being open to the press weird as fuck?

    Ok get that, what I don't get is the witnesses being the press and getting articles about their bodily functions in their final moments. Just seems odd :idk:

    Mexico has decided to move a long-planned trade railway connection worth billions of dollars from Texas to the New Mexico crossing, The Dallas Morning News reported Sunday. "We're now not going to use Texas," Mexican Economy Minister Tatiana Clouthier said. "We can't leave all the eggs in one basket and be hostages to someone who wants to use trade as a political tool."

    It won’t just be undocumented children. That’s just to get the ball rolling. Texas will go full on tax returns for public schools if given the opportunity.

    Texas would go full private schools if they can. Anyone who can’t afford to send their kids to private school shouldn’t have children, and those that do can “learn a trade” and go to work at 7 after they repeal child labor laws.

    Here at White Settlement Elementary School your children won't learn one ounce of America's troubled past, instead our curriculum focuses on how white males are being unfairly targeted and treated in today's society.

    Vouchers have been the dream of the school choice freaks for a while now but still has a lack of support across y’all qaeda. Like everything else the marriage of highland park/ river oaks republicans with the rural voters who turn out in droves make it tough. Believe it or not rural voters don’t want public ed defunded.
