Governor Abbott plays stupid games, wins stupid prizes

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s border crackdown is generating fresh backlash, with Mexico’s economy minister announcing that a new rail line to the U.S. would now go via New Mexico instead of the Lone Star State.

“We’re now not going to use Texas,” Economy Minister Tatiana Clouthier said at a conference April 28 in Mexico City, referring to a planned rail and ports expansion known as the T-MEC Corridor to connect the Pacific port of Mazatlan to the Canadian city of Winnipeg. “We can’t leave all the eggs in one basket and be hostages to someone who wants to use trade as a political tool.”

Clouthier’s message was clear: Mexico is angry about the chaos at the border caused by Abbott’s surprise order a few weeks back to force commercial trucks coming from Mexico to undergo additional inspections. While Texas officials didn’t uncover any contraband or undocumented migrants, they created hourslong delays that left fresh produce to rot and caused havoc with supply chains.

Hopefully this is the slap in the face some of these fools need to see what their party as really become. Conservatives have been fighting against that law for decades. And in those decades they’ve manipulated, lied, and gerrymandered their way into being in control regardless of what elections might say. The **** she think would happen after the garbage McConnell got away with?

Shit, those two probably wouldn’t even be in government if not for the benefits of being “chosen” by the GOP to be the token women in the party.

This is what they WANT it to become. "The Handmaids' Tale" is a GOP instruction manual.

great work, Aunt Susan.

FB friend:

Republicans neatly side-stepped a potential scandal about conservative Supreme Court judges making secret back-room pre-judgements by just pretending that's normal and going after the leaker who violated the secrecy.

Also criminalizes IUD birth control.

Republicans will take every opportunity to punish women for the crime of having sex with men other than them.

Also changing copyright regulations for JUST ONE COMPANY seems borderline unconstitutional.

And homesexual marriage, and interracial marriage, and the right to private consensual relations, and literally everything they have ever had a bug up their butts about for the last one hundred years.

They either have a plan to ensure control of the population outright, or they all want to die in revolutionary fire. Frankly, I hope the latter.

I recently had it explained to me that conservatives think abortion is the 21st century equivalant of the slavery issue in the 19th century and that it's what will finally trigger a second civil war. They feel confident they'll win because they supposedly have the same moral high ground as the slavery abolitionists.
