Texas Democrat legislators once again fled Austin to try to prevent a special session quorum and block passage of an election integrity bill. As usual, they claim (I’ll use the media’s favorite phrase here, only accurately for once: “without evidence”) that laws that ensure an honest election somehow suppress the votes of minorities and the disabled. This is a childish delaying tactic that won’t work in the long run.

Gov. Greg Abbott, who’s had a bellyful of childish, lawless Democrats lately, warned that there will be consequences, including arresting them the second they return to Texas and hauling them back to Austin to do their jobs. Although I think it would be more appropriate, and funnier, if they tried to return to Texas and were blocked from entering by the Border Patrol. Come to think of it, now’s a good time to extend that wall all the way around Texas.

VP Kamala Harris put out an offensively clueless tweet, comparing the runaway Democrats to the brave civil rights activists who “fought and died for our right to vote.”

(A.) Those civil rights pioneers weren’t fighting for the right to vote two, three or four times in the same election.

(B.) The only chance these Texas Democrats have of dying is if they’re shot by criminals thanks to the incompetent Democrat mayor of Washington, DC.

My Two Cents: If you don’t want to do your job of representing your constituents, then resign immediately. Also, why are these people being treated as heroes by DC Democrats? Aren’t those the same Democrats who’ve been demanding an end to the Senate filibuster because anything that allows a minority to thwart the will of the majority is an “assault on democracy”? Or does that only apply when they’re in the majority (never mind; we all know the answer to that question.)

At least the US Senate is evenly tied. In Texas, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the state Senate by 18-13 and in the House by 83-67. Talk about thwarting the will of the majority! If the Democrats keep going the way they are, it might not be long before their absence won’t even prevent a quorum.

    Heard about the dems positive covid test. Maybe that plane has been previously chartered by our government to transport illegal immigrants from the southern border. And Mike I wonder if the new cases popping up may have more to do with the one million plus illegal migrants being introduced into cities without being vaccinated or even tested.

    I don't understand what the Texas Governor can arrest these democrat legislatures for??? However, they have abandoned (walked out on-in effect resigned from) their job, therefore their positions should be terminated and replaced immediately with people interested in working, and terminated without pay from moment they refused to do their job. Private industry would not put up with this type of behavior, why should we, the people, who pay their salaries, put up with it?

    Maybe the voters in the districts represented by the runaway Democrats should start a recall effort. This might get their attention that voters are sick of their actions of not staying and representing. These Democrats should read the poles where voters want exactly what the Texas bill proposes.

    These Dumbacrats are out of control. I think the Governor should do an executive order so if members of congress walk out that the rest of congress can continue the vote.. Also the Dem's that left need to be put in jail for 30 days after returning and have a criminal record. If they stay away for a certain period of time they should lose their Texas residency. Then they would lose their job.

    I say, if they walk away from the job, we don't want them. Rather than arresting them and dragging them back to Austin, just fire them. I think we call that 'job abandonment'. I'm sure we can find some people who will be happy to take the job seriously and show up for work!
