It started with this guy calling a couple of Democrat state Senators “heroes” — a term I found not befitting of anybody in the Texas Lege.
Michael Quinn Sullivan at Texans for Fiscal Responsibility has been doing his damnedest to keep us informed and fighting on our behalf:
This is by design, folks. Mostly because Joe Straus 1) is not a Conservative, but he is 2) a coward. If his hair was on fire, I’d piss all over his leg.
I guess asking our legislators to act with honor and integrity is asking too much of them, huh?
Me? I already mostly carry in an OWB holster, covered by long, untucked work shirts. I’d continue to carry mostly OWB, but now could also wear t-shirts, tucked in button downs, or any other shirt I wanted without fear of exposing my handgun.
All-in-all, these are good bills in that they seek to expand our second amendment rights, rather than diminish them.
I found that second tweet rather interesting. If there is “no way to determine” how many state officials are double-dipping, than why is it a legislative priority for Rep. Turner to get this bill passed?
With the start of the 83rd Texas Lege today, Will has tweeted more under the meme Stuff the #txlege needs to do in 2013:
The bill also requires each department to find “potential sources of funding to support the entity’s efforts to adapt to climate change.” Which is the meat of this bill. Which boils down to Ellis wanting to spend our tax dollars on requiring feel-good programs to combat a non-existent problem.
Sounds reasonable to me. Which is why Democrats will fight this bill with every last breath in their immoral bodies.
