The Squad vs The Insurrection Caucus in bills filed/passed

January 6, 2023

Passing bills in Congress is hard work. It requires reaching across to the other side of the aisle, negotiate, compromise, and politicing. That’s what politicians do. Unfortunately those on the extremes, the members of The Squad and the members of The Insurrection Caucus are not capable of passing bills.

Over the last 4 years The Squad consisting of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Cory bush, Lohan Omar, Ayanna Presley, Jamaal bowman, and Rashida Harbi Tlaib have filed a total of 290 bills, passing only 4. 3 of these bills renamed buildings.

The insurrection Caucus is worse. Consisting of Chip Roy, Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, Scott Perry, Paul Gosar, Lauren Boebert, and Jim Jordon the Caucus has filed 668 bills over 14 years, passing only 8. All but 1 of these bills renamed buildings.

Of note, Jim Jordan hasn’t filed a single bill over his entire 14 years in office. Lauren Boebert filed 42 bills that were so extreme none of them were sent to a committee for consideration. Andy Biggs filed 175 bills over 6 years with 1 signed into law renaming a clinic.

Most of The Squad filed a number of bills but only 4 became law. Cory Bush over 2 years filed 24 bills with only 1 being considered in committee. The Squad has followed in the steps of their leader, Bernie Sanders who after 32 years filed 3 bills, passed 3 bills, all of them renaming buildings.

These groups are similar because they are not capable of reaching across the aisle but make no mistake about the differences. The Squad isn’t defending the insurrectionists of jan 6, or supporting Donald Trump while he breaks the law over and over and over.

There are clear differences.

Austin Catholic Diocese responds to Greg Abbott’s immigration bussing stunt

January 2, 2023

Praise the lord.

That tree had one job.

December 26, 2022

Greg Abbott is nothing but a cruel, crippled jackass of a human being.

Maybe Abbott is still mad about his mistake of running under a tree being cut down leaving hm a crippled, vindictive, cruel human being. Maybe he is taking the anger of being crippled out on the families of gun violence or the women and children of immigrants coming to our country looking for a better place to live. Or maybe he is just an asshole.

On Christmas Eve while Abbott was reaching up to get a warm cup of wassail he was sticking immigrant women and children, some without shoes, on buses to be shipped like cattle to Washington DC in freezing weather. He thinks it’s cute. He gets a virtual boner just thinking about it. It’s nothing but cruel. Just plain cruel. It is especially cruel playing games with immigrant families that came her LEGALLY on Christmas Eve, the night before the birth of little baby Jesus who Abbott claims to worships.

My suggestion for Abbott is to go back to church and get a prop so he could drop to his knees and ask for forgiveness for his acts of sick, cruelty to other vulnerable human beings because he is going to hell. The acts of cruelty he has shown to the families who lost their kids in shootings across the state and his act of cruelty on Christmas Eve has punched his ticket to hell where he will be received with open arms.

And every Texan who voted for this crippled human being should also go to church, join Abbott on his knees, and beg for forgiveness for putting this man in office.

How to fix the Republican Party Part VII: Stop demonizing Mexicans

December 14, 2022

The bumper sticker to the left was actually being sold at a Colorado gas station.

The United States allows immigrants, who surrender themselves to ports of entry, to legally enter the United States and remain in the US if justified. There are others who enter the United States illegally by other means.

Unfortunately the Republican Party has targeted these individuals, no matter if they entered legally or not, as terrorists, rapists, and drug dealers (sound familiar). They do this because it works. It rallies the gun toting nut jobs. It encourages them to drive to a Walmart on the border and shoot the invaders, killing men, women, and children. They encourage hatred towards immigrants, specifically Mexicans, or anyone who looks Mexican. But you don’t hear them focus their hatred towards Cubans, or Germans, or others who enter the United States illegally.

This isn’t by accident. The Republican Party runs on immigration. Every fucking election they are whining about immigration. They have no serious solutions and have never proposed serious solutions because they do not want to solve the issue. If they did what would they run on? What would they blame Democrats for? They can’t run on abortion anymore, or family fucking values. The Party has been in power in Texas for over 20 years and haven’t moved one inch closer to solving the immigration problem.

Here is an idea. How about focusing your hatred and guns towards your donors? How about hating the very people who are hiring illegal workers to build houses, cook food at restaurants, and provide other services. If your damn donors would quit hiring the workers, they wouldn’t come here to work!!!

The leaders of the Republican Party are making the immigration problem worse and they are getting people killed. We have an immigration problem and we need common sense, intelligent, leaders to fix this problem. We don’t need a bunch of racist assholes using immigration as a campaign stunt. Do your party and the country a favor, grow the fuck up and fix the *oddamn problem.

What Beto has to say tonight

September 30, 2022

The time for screwing around is over. Beto needs to hammer Abbott, challenge his lies, and remind voters of his record.

In tonight‘s debate Beto should start every sentence with the following “you’ve been in office for eight years and yet you still haven’t accomplished anything on [the issue being discussed]”.

Beginning a sentence with this phrase can remind voters that after eight years Abbott is still complaining about immigration. You would think after 20 years of republican rule in the state he would’ve found a solution especially since they had a republican president and congress.

The cost of college education has skyrocketed. The cost of a home insurance and health insurance is also through the roof. After eight years of Abbott being governor our state brings up the bottom on education, teacher retirement, teacher healthcare, and quality of life. Texas is ranked number one for mass shootings. We are ranked number one in the number of rapes in the state. We are number one in the number of uninsured citizens.

Abbott has a record of incompetence and failure. Beto needs to say it. Over and over.

It’s official. Greg Abbott is a Texas sized asshole

September 17, 2022

There is no denying it any longer and there is no nice way to say it. Greg Abbott is an asshole. Just a Texas sized, lying, crippled, asshole.

On the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month Greg Abbott bussed immigrants, who came here legally through a port of entry, to Vice President Kamela Harris neighborhood in Washington DC. What kind of a dick does something like this? Seriously, why do you have to be a dick about everything?

Instead of seriously trying to address our immigration problems Abbott has resorted to racist, un-American, and Kruel human trafficking stunts to appease his racist base of MAGAt republicans. He thinks it is funny. He thinks it is cute. Maybe he will also deport his wife who is also celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

Coming through a port of entry, applying for asylum, is not illegal under international and federal laws. The immigrants are to be processed and released but are to return to justify their request. Instead Abbott like the Kruel douche he is bussed them to other states where they will find it hard to return and then become illegal. It’s Kruel. It’s Khaotic. It’s Krap.

This is the new GOP. The KKK has returned with the biggest asshole of the nation leading the way.

Why the Republican Party will NEVER fix our broken immigration system

September 7, 2022

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why, after 20 years of republican rule in Texas, republicans have not and will not fix our broken immigration system. It’s all they have to run on.

Think about it. Greg Abbott and his Republican Party have been in complete control of Texas in the House, Senate, Governor’s office, Supreme Court, and all state wide offices and yet after 20 years they still haven’t even addressed our broken immigration system except for Kruel, Khaotic, and Kostly political stunts. (KKK)

Now that women have been stripped of their reproduction rights by overturning Roe v. Wade, the Republican Party has only one boogie man left to blame for crime, stealing jobs, and raping Texan women who must carry the rapist baby to term: Mexicans. They have campaigned on the immigration issue for more than 20 years even though they controlled all levels of government on the Federal level and state level. They never intend to solve this problem.

Back n August of 2006 under a Republican President and Governor the major sugar daddies of the Republican Party wrote an op-ed in the Dallas Morning News calling for immigration reform. According to the op-ed:

Not only that, but immigrant workers renew and reinvigorate America. They remind us what it’s like to give a job your all. We talk about old-fashioned family values; they live them. And those of us who cherish our faith and love our country can only rejoice at their devotion to both. As chairmen, CEOs and stockholders, we call on Congress to act — to go back to Washington and pass realistic immigration reform that provides the workers we need to keep our businesses growing.

Dallas Morning News August 26, 2006

Newsflash: The republicans did nothing. Nothing at all. Zero. Zip. Nada. These companies thrive on illegal, cheap, workers. They depend upon illegal, cheap, workers. Those who signed this op-ed include Bob Perry (homebuilder) Bo Pilgrim (chicken producer), J. Huffines (Auto dealer), Red McCombs (Auto dealer) and other Republican Party sugar daddies.

Even under trump and a republican controlled congress and republican controlled state they did absolutely nothing. They didn’t pass a bill to fund their “stupid” wall but they did initiate Kruel stunts such as separating children from their mothers.

“What we don’t need right now are stunts,” O’Rourke told about 300 people at a dance hall in Del Rio on Saturday — a message he repeated in earlier stops in both Laredo and Eagle Pass.

Houston Chronicle

Under Abbott the KKK stunts will continue because that is what they campaign on. They talk tough. They look tough. But like Ted Cruz they all are nothing but a bunch of Texas sized cowards.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Again.

August 16, 2022

Leave it to Texas Governor Greg Abbott to be a dick. Again.

Back in November 2021 Abbott made a dick move by celebrating the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse who shot and killed two protesters in Wisconsin. Rittenhouse was underage but carried and used an AR-15 in killing the two human beings which made Abbott gleefully tweet about it and pee in his wheelchair.

Now after 30 years of Republican rule in Texas with still no solutions to our immigration system Abbott has pulled another dick move. Abbott is sending immigrants, who have applied for asylum under the protection of international laws, to other states like New York and Washington DC. Not only is it another stupid stunt, it is just plain Kruel. (As in Kruel. Korrupt. Khaos. The Republican Party returns to it’s roots: The KKK)

This is simply Kruel. Abbott may be giggling and peeing in his wheelchair but these human beings are seeking asylum, leaving their home country, and have been bussed around like cattle. Abbott can’t act like an elected official or a human being and try to solve the problem.

What a dick.

Hispanic Caucus at the Texas Democratic Convention

July 15, 2022

Another large and enthusiastic crowd at the Hispanic Caucus.

Luckily they put party business before speeches electing two State Democratic Executive Committee (SDEC) members and then passing a resolution to endorse current Chair Gilberto Hinojosa before adjourning.

Although the vast majority of members loudly supported Hinojosa there were pockets that were not. No one nominated either of the other two candidates so it is hard to gauge his support but it does seem to be pretty solid, but not completely. We heard from Carroll Robinson and he seemed to have a solid argument for a change in leadership. I look forward to hearing Kim Olson speak.

Many of the speakers talked about the strength of the Hispanic vote unfortunately over the last few elections Hispanics have not voted their strength. I have seen this party work on issues that are core to the Hispanic community for years, decades, and yet they do not vote their strength. If they would no one who makes fun of our language would ever hold office again. No one who puts a target on our backs because of our skin color would ever hold office again. Yet….they do not vote their strength. 

Personally I have no idea WTF they are waiting for. Their kids have been shot. Their electricity cut off. They are targeted by white supremacy groups. Their home insurance, electricity, taxes, home prices have skyrocketed. WTLF are they waiting for?

Mexican MAGAts running for office: Vidal Martinez, Richard Vera, and Bianca Grancia

February 27, 2022

It’s embarrassing.

The Republican Party has worked hard to recruit Mexican MAGAts to run for office. One is running for Harris County Judge (Vidal Martinez), another is running for Harris County Commissioner (Richard Vera), and another for Senate District 11 (Bianca Grancia). 

Mexican MAGAts have endorsed the values of the Republican Party including making fun of disabled people and fucking a porn star, paying her off, and lying about it. They endorse making comments about African nations calling them shitholes, referring to Native Americans as “Pocahontas”, siding with white supremacists, Nazis, and pushing the envelope with white wing racist remarks. They endorse lying on a daily basis, referring to women as c*nts, and siding with dictators like Putin. They place blame on those from south of the border for all the ills of the country while their white republican buddies laugh behind their backs, blaming them for all the ills of the country. They endorse elected officials acting like a bunch of assholes, spewing hate, and dividing their constituents. They endorse lying, cheating, and stealing. They endorse flooding our streets with guns. They endorse the cowards who run in the face of danger such as Texas Senator Ted Cruz. 

These are not the values of most Mexican Americans. These are not the values of most human beings. These are the values of the republican party. The party of the biggest racist, asshole in political history, Donald Trump.

Tio Tomases have their nose buried up trump’s ass. That’s another thing we don’t value. We don’t kiss ass and we don’t tolerate those who do.
