Senator Middleton broke his arm patting himself on the back claiming he is protecting our precious children in. He isn’t.
In an email to some of his constituents Money Mayes Middleton said:
“The number 1 cause of death of children in Texas is gun violence and I am proud that I filed and passed bills that would restrict access to military style guns, ban open carry, and require common sense reforms to gun ownership.”
LOL. He didn’t say that. Instead he said:
“This session, we prioritized protecting our precious children from things they should never be exposed to. I was proud to co-sponsor legislation, House Bill 900 by Representative Patterson, that bans sexually explicit books in our schools and sets strict new library standards to make sure children aren’t exposed to sexually explicit materials. We also passed the bill to protect children from sexually oriented performances and drag shows.”
Yes. Books. The number 1 cause of death of children in Texas is books. And drag queens. I don’t remember a drag queen killing 19 children in Uvalde, or 8 high school kids in Santa Fe, or 27 christians in Sutherland. I can’t remember when a child was assaulted with a book leading to their death.
If you think your kids are any safer after Middleton’s bills, you might want to think again or better yet just think. Nothing has changed. Your kids and family has just as much chance of getting shot at schools, Walmarts, parades, concerts, clubs, restaurants, and anywhere in the public as they did before the Legislation session started. Middleton is full of crap.
And Middleton isn’t going to do a thing about it. Not even offer worthless thoughts and prayers.
The city of Friendswood was asked if open carry of assault rifles is allowed on parade floats and at the celebration in the park. From the email exchange:
Question: Since Texas is an open carry state, will float entries be allowed to open carry guns? Will attendees to the park event be able to open carry? Will there be any restrictions to the rights of gun owners participating in the parade or park event? Response: there are no restrictions other than those set forth by the State of Texas in regards to open carry.
The state has no licensing scheme for long guns. Because state law does not prohibit the carrying of a rifle or shotgun in a public place, a person is generally allowed to carry those weapons in public in Texas.
So you could expect to see a float with elected officials, gun owners dressed up like cartel members or GI Joe, and carrying assault rifles, hand guns, and NRA flags. You could expect to see them on the sidewalks behind you as you watch the gun floats. You can expect them at the celebration in the park throughout the day. Just because someone is carrying a load AR15 under their trench coat doesn’t mean you should be scared shitless.
Texas Republicans attempted to pass a bill requiring all public schools to post the Ten Commandments in every classroom. Unfortunately the bill stalled because various factions of Christians couldn’t decide which version of the ten commandments should be posted. The leader of the Catholic Caucus had this to say:
“Since Catholics are the largest group within the Christians faith we should be the deciding organization to determine which version of the commandments should be posted.”
The bill stalled until late last night when Democrats broke ranks and offered a compromise. According to State Representative S.A. Tan, “We have offered a compromise that not only will pass constitutional challenges, it will adequately reflect the true values of the Republican Party. With this compromise children in schools will know how to avoid being a dick.” The ten commandments that will be posted are:
Just when you think the republicans can’t go any lower….they do.
Lone Star Left broke the story about republican elected officials on the House floor “legislating while inebriated”…..and they have video…..official House video. The inebriated included the Speaker of the House, Dade Phelan which resulted in a call for him to resign….by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, possibly the most crooked AG in Texas history since AG Dan Morales. Morales served 3.5 years in prison for conspiracy and using political money for private purposes.
In a tit for tat, the House Republicans responded by filing articles of impeachment which includes bribery, fraud, stealing funds, misuse of office, and unethical conduct. Ken Paxton did everything the Republican Party stands for including adultery.
So here we have the “Party of Lincoln” that relies on telling lies, over and over, again. They are a united group of cowards who won’t get off their knees to the NRA. They are so hypocritical the Society of Hypocrites of Texas (SHIT) has filed suit for defamation of character. They have expelled one of their own for having sex with an intern yet turn a blind eye to those who send dick pics, or those who commit adultery, or those driving while intoxicated. They tolerate racist comments. They mock law and order. They love being mean, hateful christians. They cheat. They lie. They steal. They drink.
This isn’t the party of Lincoln. It’s just a drunk party.
Offering thoughts and prayers is the least you can do on the anniversary of the Uvalde massacre. Literally.
Maybe you have noticed our cowards in the Texas Legislature stopped offering thoughts and prayers after being criticized for doing nothing but offering thoughts and prayers after the Sante Fe shooting. That is all they did. It is literally the least you can do after a mass shooting. There is nothing that takes less effort, intelligence, or courage than offering thoughts and prayers. It’s not like they are actually thinking about the kids or praying for their families or those who will be in a wheelchair for the rest of their lives.
But it is worse. After the Sante Fe shooting, they thought, prayed, then passed permit less carry allowing anyone to open carry a loaded assault weapon without training or a permit. After Uvalde they then blamed mental health for the massacre. Let’s admit it. They are right. If you are in an elected position to do something to end or curb gun violence after 19 children were slaughtered and you dont, then yes you are mentally ill. A truly sick, immoral, human being.
On this day, a year after Uvalde, don’t be a coward. Don’t offer thoughts and prayers. Do something.
Take a moment out of your busy lives to remember those in Uvalde Texas lost to senseless and preventable violence.

We will hold an informal vigil at Clear Lake Park. Enter the parking lot off of Clear Lake Park Road. We will meet behind the large covered pavilion, near the water. You are welcome to wear you red shirt if you have one.
There is no bottom to the Republican Party. Rotten bastards.
After the shooting at Sante Fe high school which claimed the lives of 8 students and 2 teachers, elected officials across the area attended the new conference to offer thoughts and prayers and blame the shootings on everything but their lack of courage to address the gun violence issue. Texas sized cowards such as Ted Cruz, Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick and others attended. Greg Abbott told the press:
“We need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families. It’s time in Texas that we take action to step up and make sure this tragedy is never repeated ever again.”
That was the last time Abbott or any elected official offered thoughts and prayers for gun violence victims. Two years later he signed a gun sanctuary bill and permit less carry bill and, as predicted, another mass shooting occurred this time taking the lives of 19 nine year old kids at an elementary school.
Yesterday they unveiled a memorial for those killed at Santa Fe. The cowards of the Republican Party including Abbott, Patrick, Cruz, Senator Money Mayes Middleton, State Representative Terri Leo-Wilson, and State Representative Dennis Paul didn’t have the balls to show up and offer whatever worthless offers they can come up with.
They probably were afraid that one of the parents would have slapped the living shit out of them.
It’s time we start asking the obvious question. What the fuck is wrong with us?
It’s no longer a time to ask our elected officials “What the fuck is wrong with you?” as I did when I met State Representative Dennis Paul on the greenbelt after the Uvalde massacre. We all know they will not address gun violence. They have refused to sponsor or pass common sense gun safety reforms that are massively supportive by their constituents. We know what the fuck is wrong with them.
They are immoral. They are fake christians. They are truly fucked up human beings. They love guns over girls, bullets over boys. No matter how many children killed in school, christians killed in church, shoppers killed in malls, immigrants killed at home, they just do not care. They are mentally ill for doing nothing while 5 year olds are torn apart with weapons of war. They are truly sick fucks.
And so are we. We know they will do nothing but all we do is demand they do something while we do nothing. We have organizations working hard to advocate for gun safety and we should thank them but we are WE doing? Are we calling our elected officials on a daily basis to demand gun safety? Are we demanding a town hall meeting to discuss our families safety at schools, parades, Walmarts, churches, etc? Are we protesting at our elected officials offices?
What the fuck are we waiting for? What are YOU waiting for? This gun violence needs to stop before it reaches our own families.
After 3 mass shootings taking the lives of 34 Texans including 19 children at Ross Elementary it is clear our elected officials will not take action to curb this violence. It is time to take this issue into our own hands.
They have done nothing but pour billions of dollars on school safety, still leaving our schools wide open to an assault. They have done nothing to secure our safety in churches, Walmarts, shopping malls, 4th of July parades, dance clubs, concerts and other public places. We are not even safe in our own homes and yet they are silent.
As are we. It is time to have a discussion about gun violence. A frank, face to face, uncomfortable discussion to address this violence before we become victims ourselves. So I have a question for you:
Would you attend? Would you take a couple of hours to have a frank discussion with our elected officials on gun violence? The ground rules would be simple:
Non partisan. Leave your politics at the door or leave through the door
All elected officials would be invited to attend or to send a represenative
Media would also be invited
Presentations on gun violence would be provided by invited speakers
Elected officials will be asked to provide comments and participate in the discussion
Our elected officials are sitting on their ass while Texas is #1 in mass shootings. Something has to happen. Would you be interested in attending? Would you be interested in volunteering?
What an asshole. What a truly crippled, Texas sized, rotten asshole of a human being. It’s bad enough Texas Governor Greg Abbott loves guns more than our families. It’s bad enough that he enjoys owning the libs by posing with guns so big it would topple him off his wheelchair if he actually shot it. It’s bad enough that he signed a gun sanctuary bill after the killings at Santa Fe. It’s bad enough that he can’t even offer thoughts and prayers after mass shootings for fear of being ridiculed.
And now after another 5 human beings, including another 9 year old kid, were killed with a gun Abbott gave to the shooter, he had to reach down into his bag of racist dog whistles to post a heartless tweet :
I’ve announced a $50K reward for info on the criminal who killed 5 illegal immigrants Friday. Also directed #OperationLoneStar to be on the lookout.
Abbott is still mad about that tree that put him in a wheelchair many years ago and he has taken that anger out on Texans ever since. Our families are not safe at schools, Walmarts, churches, dance clubs, concerts, parades, etc, etc. Our home insurance, electricity, college tuition, taxes, and the cost of living in this shit hole state has skyrocketed making Texas the 7th worst state to retire in. We lead the nation in mass shootings and yet he does nothing but sit on his ass.
Unfortunately over half of Texans have no problem with him. It doesn’t seem to matter that under his watch 19 children, 9 year old children, were slaughtered at school. It doesn’t matter to them that 27 Christians were slaughtered at church in Sutherland Springs, or 5 police officers were killed in Dallas by a shooter with an AR15. It doesn’t matter to them that they froze their asses off when the grid failed. They don’t care. They put him back in office.
So fuck Greg Abbott and everyone who voted for him.
