Governor Abbott lies to the sad faces of the parents of the Uvalde massacre.

September 2, 2022

We do thing bigger in Texas including having the biggest liar as our Governor.

It not low enough for Abbott to sign legislation sitting with the head of the NRA to protect guns in Texas right after the Santa Fe shooting. It’s not low enough for Abbott to say “It could have been worse” after 19 children were gunned down with the very weapon Abbott protected. No it’s not low enough for Abbott so he went further.

According to the Houston Chronicle he claimed, incorrectly, that he could not call a special session because it was unconstitutional to raise the age to buy an AR15 from 18 to 21. He thinks we are idiots. There are limits across the country on the age you can purchase an assault weapon. In some states no one can buy an assault weapon. In the United States we had a complete ban on the purchase of assault weapons for 10 full years until the Republican Party let it lapse. So Greg Abbott just fuckin lied to their sad faces.

Even if Abbott was right, and he is not, he could put this to the voters in Texas and amend the Texas Constitution to raise the age to 21 and it would pass 80-20. He could put a complete ban on assault weapon ownership and it would pass 60-40. But it is so much easier to just be like trump and lie like a rotten dog.

The Uvalde parents have been demanding Abbott to call a special session to raise the age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21. The shooter that killed their children was 18 and was able to buy multiple assault weapons and more according to the NYPost he bought:

  • Smith and Wesson M&P15 (also an AR-15-style rifle)
  • Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 (an AR-15-style rifle)
  • 375 rounds of M193, a 5.56mm 55-grain round with a full metal jacket
  • 60 30-round magazines,
  • a holographic weapon sight
  • Hellfire Gen 2 snap-on trigger system
  • 1,740 rounds of 5.56mm 75-grain boat tail hollow point

By now if you don’t know who Greg Abbott is then you will never know what he is.

Dear Republicans, Whose side are you on?

August 31, 2022
Fourth Officer Who Responded to Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Dies

Well, President Joe Biden has asked the right question to the MAGAt Republicans. Whose side are you on?

The Republican Party has flooded our streets with guns including military style weapons, high capacity clips, armor piercing bullets, body armor, and Mafia style silencers and yet they claim to “Back the Blue”. These killing machines strike fear in law enforcement as well as every citizen in the United States.

The Republican Party has embraced open carry of assault weapons in public and expect Law Enforcement to take a chance that the owner is not a mentally ill person waiting to kill police or children. They treat gun ownership like a joke while Police are faced with your jokes on a daily basis.

Republican leaders watched as Police Officers were attacked, beaten, on the steps of the United States Capitol, and did nothing. They watched. Silently. Gleefully. They advocate for riots and violence in defense of their leader, Donald Trump, even when faced with overwhelming evidence provided by the FBI and the Department of Justice.

They refused to call out those in their party and their media mouth pieces when they hint about or justify the use of force against the FBI, IRS, and other members of law enforcement.

It just begs the question: Whose side are you on? Seriously. What the fuck is wrong with you? What the living fuck is wrong with you? In the words of Beto O’Rourke ““It may be funny to you, motherfucker, but it is not funny to me.”

This isn’t funny. You are going to get more people killed with your hateful rhetoric.

You think it’s funny?

Washing your hands of the Uvalde Massacre

August 27, 2022

Spare me.

I have never liked Mattress MAGAt Mack or his furniture store. I’ve been critical of the Houston Astros for organizing this feel good stunt of honoring Uvalde citizens who survived the shooting. Instead of actually using their power to stop this senseless violence like the Uvalde Massacre from happening again they chose to do something easy, something that can wash their hands of the blood of the kids killed.

The Astros could have used the opportunity to tell the Uvalde community, and all communities across the state that they will do whatever they can to prevent spending another nickel on consoling those affected by gun violence. They could do more than a moment of silence. They could do more than hitting a homerun for a fan.

The Houston Astros strike out on the Uvalde massacre BAH  August 19th, 2022

MAGAt Mack joined in the ceremonial, feel good, event calling it a “Day to Remember”. You know what is a day to remember? May 24, 2022. That’s the day 19 children were slaughtered by an 18 year old with a military assault weapon. Maybe instead of eating a hotdog, playing a stupid game and feeling good about yourself, you could stop giving money to the elected officials who gave the 18 year old the right to buy the weapon. Maybe you could stand up and use your power to demand a change in laws to prevent another massacre and still protect the rights to own guns, responsibly.

Instead MAGAt Mack and the Astros would rather have their very own “Day to Remember”, a day that will live in infamy, at least for them. Now, go wash your goddamn hands.

Don’t Move to Texas

August 24, 2022

It’s hard to disagree when Texas leads the nation in mass shootings (8), is the easiest state to get a gun, a state where anyone can walk around in public with a loaded AR15, a 100 round barrel clip, a silencer, and wearing body armor. A state with out of control property taxes, electricity rates, college tuition rates, home prices, and home insurance premiums. Texas ranks 49th in benefits for teachers in the nation, 45th in education. Texas teachers are underpaid, under appreciated, and under attack. Texas doesn’t take too kindly to gays, muslims, Mexicans, or anyone who even looks illegal. Texas has flooded the streets with unlimited guns putting our law enforcement under constant stress to keep us safe. And Texas is ranked 48th in quality of living

In short, Texas sucks. Do yourself a favor, Don’t Mess Move With To Texas.

After flooding Harris County with guns, republicans complain about….gun violence

August 24, 2022

The Harris County Republican Party should be sued by the Society of Hypocrites in Texas (SHIT) for defecation of character.

This is all the republicans have left. They are truly nothing but a bunch of lying, hypocritical, racist, gun toting, bible thumping, pathetic, losers. Case in point. Yesterday the Harris County Republican Party along with the State’s Comptroller, after flooding the state with guns, allowing 18 year olds to buy assault weapons, high capacity clips, armor piercing bullets, and silencers, they are now blaming the Democrats for…wait for it… rising crime and defunding law enforcement. According to the Houston Chronicle:

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar this week accused Harris County commissioners of defunding local constables and threatened to prevent the county from implementing its proposed 2023 budget if the county does not reverse course.

The issue is about how Constables can roll unused funds back into their budgets with no questions asked. It’s a policy that is not practiced in any government entity in Texas. In fact:

“This practice was unique to Harris County and is not the practice of other local governments,” he said. “Under the current policy, departments, including the Constable’s Offices, can request the use of unspent funds on vehicles, equipment, and other one-time expenses. The County has continued to support these investments.”

So to be clear, republicans are just fucking losers.

Texas Senator caught sending form letters to mass shooting victims families

August 23, 2022

There is only one thing worse than a Texas sized, tuck tail and run, sniveling coward of a weasel. Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

I hope the Houston Astros win the World Series this year so I will have the opportunity to boo the living shit out of Cruz when he jumps on the Astros bandwagon riding on top of a firetruck during the parade. As I have said in the past, if Ted Cruz was at the Alamo he would have been the first to have jumped across the line in the sand and run away leaving his own people to die just like he did during the 2021 Texas Freeze Out. He is a Texas sized coward. He is a filthy human being, even worse than trump.

As an example of what a filthy piece of garbage he is, here is a letter he wrote to the family of a child who was killed in a mass shooting. In the letter he says “XXXX was an engaging young woman who brightened any room with her love and compassion.” It’s as if Ted knew who she was. He continues “Her smile and creative spirit have made an impact that will be remembered…” as if he personally witnessed her creative spirit.

In reality Cruz had never met her. He knew nothing about her. Instead of doing something to honor the child by calling for legislation to prevent another mass shootings he had the balls to send her family a fuckin form letter and a goddamn flag. Cruz shouldn’t be a Senator or a human being.

The Houston Astros strike out on the Uvalde massacre

August 19, 2022

HOUSTON, TEXAS – AUGUST 14: Members of the community of Uvalde, TX attend the game as the Houston Astros host Uvalde Strong Day before the game against the Oakland Athletics at Minute Maid Park on August 14, 2022 in Houston, Texas. The Astros are busing in 500 members of the Uvalde community and have distributed 2,500 additional tickets. (Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)

Let’s give credit to the Houston Astros for bussing in 500 members of the Uvalde community for a “Uvalde Strong” baseball game. It was a nice gesture to the grieving community.

I’m probably a minority on this but the Astros could have, and should have done more. The cost of their Uvalde Strong event is a drop in the bucket to the Astros organization. They could do this event after every mass shooting in the United States and still be profitable but it’s not about the money.

The Astros could have used the opportunity to tell the Uvalde community, and all communities across the state that they will do whatever they can to prevent spending another nickel on consoling those affected by gun violence. They could do more than a moment of silence. They could do more than hitting a homerun for a fan.

They could demand action from Greg Abbott and the NRA party. They could hold a moment of silence for 21 minutes before each game to honor those who were killed in Uvalde. Let the fans and the entire Astros organization stand for a full 21 minutes for every single goddamn game until Greg Abbott calls a special session to address gun violence. They could stop donating to candidates that refuse to address the issue. They could use their voice to demand action instead of their wallets to feel good about themselves. They could make a strong stand and truly honor those whose lives have been lost and those whose lives have been changed forever.

Thanks for the baseball game, Houston, but you wiffed on this one.

Texas Republicans issue threats to election workers…in red districts

August 19, 2022

It’s all fun and games to Greg Abbott until someone gets hurt.

According to KXAN all the election workers in Gillespie County, a county that is gunshot, bleeding red, have resigned due to threats and stalking by Republican MAGAts. Governor Abbott and the entire Republican Party have shown their support of the threats with their deafening silence and constant spewing of conspiracy stupidity. With just three months before the election the county is now scrambling to replace the workers and conduct a safe and secure election.

It should be concerning to the Mexican MAGAts, who think they are republicans, that Latinos are the focus of these threats. It’s typical of the Republican Party to claim they are courting the Latino vote then threaten and stalk Latinas running the elections. According to KXAN:

“The year 2020 was when I got the death threats,” [Gillespie County Elections Administrator Anissa] Herrera told the Post. “It was enough that I reached out to our county attorney, and it was suggested that I forward it to FPD (Fredericksburg Police Department) and the sheriff’s office.”

A Thursday report from the U.S. House Oversight Committee showed similar threats to Tarrant County Elections Administrator Heider Garcia, who sent a letter to representatives about violent threats made to both himself and his children.

Gillespie county is about as red as it gets and includes the cities of Fredericksburg, Stonewall, and Luchenbach (where ain’t nobody feeling no pain). The threats and stalking are coming from the constant lies about voter fraud and rigged elections by Trump and the Republican Party. Eventually someone will get killed, the Republican Party will blame it on someone else, and we will all forget about it without doing something to stop it.

Just like we did after El Paso, Santa Fe, and the Uvalde massacres.

It’s Back to School! Are CCISD Schools Safe?

August 12, 2022

Don’t blame CCISD, but our schools are no more safer than the day before the Uvalde massacre, or the day before the Santa Fe shooting and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why.

It’s been over 4 years since the Santa Fe shooting which took the lives of 8 students and 2 teachers. Governor Abbott and other local Republicans offered endless thoughts and prayers and nothing else. Four years later 19 children and 2 teachers lost their lives in Uvalde and again, Abbott has done nothing to protect your kids or any citizen in Texas from gun violence.

After Santa Fe Abbott signed a number of NRA sponsored bills and declared Texas to be sanctuary city for guns. The bills allows anyone to walk around in public with a loaded assault rifle with a large capacity clip. They allowed the purchase and use of a silencer. The bills do not require any training or licensing. It allows them to dress like GI Joe or a cartel member with bullet proof vests. In Texas anyone over the age of 18 can still buy an assault weapon and ammunition which can blow off body parts and tear bodies to pieces.

What has Abbott done to curb gun violence? Nothing. He refuses to ban open carry, or require background checks or require extensive checks for those wanting to own an assault weapon. He refused to address red flag laws. He refuses to address the massive increase in gun violence in the State. He refuses to even talk about it. He values guns and the gun lobby more than children and their families. At least Abbott and his NRA buddies have even stopped offering useless thoughts and prayers after every mass shooting.

So when you ask if your kids school is safe, the answer is pretty fucking easy.
