Open Thread | Texas Needs You, Beto.

Beto in Texas

Our own SouthernGirl2 and her family went to a Townhall with Beto. In Washington County, Brenham, Texas.

Beto is going everywhere in Texas. He’s not just going to the blue parts of the State. He wants every voter in Texas to understand that there is someone in their corner.

That he understands what the Insurrection of January 6th was about.

How Voter Suppression Bills are a threat do our democracy.

The State is really going through something right now. And, I’m scared for the citizens of Texas.

You have an energy company, due to the dedication of the Republicans to no regulations, that they have put Texas in the position to be on their own grid. Well, that shyt didn’t work this past winter, killing hundreds. Now, it’s Summer, the heat is here, and the grid doesn’t seem to be working any better. In the mid 1990’s, Chicago had a hot spell that killed almost 800 people. I am fearful for Texas.

So, in the middle of this epic failure of Republican rule, and the possible risking of lives of millions of its citizens during this heat spell, what is the GOP Leadership doing in Texas?

Open Thread | Juneteenth Is Now A National Holiday

I didn’t learn about Juneteenth in school. It was an Elder in the church, who grew up in Texas, that taught me about Juneteenth as a child.

You will not disrespect nor denigrate the work of activists of many years.

You will not diminish this by bringing all the other issues that need to be fixed.

You will not dampen the joy of this victory.

Happy Juneteenth!

Open Thread | There Are Those Of Us Who See The MSM Foolishness

The MSM thinks that we have amnesia about how the GQP has acted since 2009. And, how the MSM aids them. The Democrats need to remember, and act accordingly. They did with the COVID Relief Bill, and the same path should be followed with infrastructure and Voting Rights.
