The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth… but meantime they’re pretty much screwed

Wendy Davis is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars from out of state
FIFTY SEVEN % of her donors are outside the state. Yeah, they’re serious about turning Texas blue. They don’t hesitate to pay to see it happen.

If that happens, the electoral votes of this state will ensure that Obama style candidates hold national office for the rest of our lives. THAT would affect YOU.

Wendy has to be stopped NOW, while we can

As Ayn Rand said… You can ignore politics, but you can’t ignore the result of ignoring politics.

meek-inherit-earthWHY DOES THE RIGHT LOSE ELECTIONS?
I shared a link for her Senate opponent yesterday on Facebook, and it wasn’t shared by anyone. Why? Folks on the right (except me) are nothing if not polite. If they post a political donation site on their timeline it might (horrors!) offend someone.

The left has no revulsion at offending. They don’t fear getting involved. They want their agenda implemented. Period.

We’re all in the same boat
If your oar isn’t moving, someone else’s is. Oh the boat still moves, but you have zero effect on where it goes. You’re just along for the ride and someone else determines your fate.

They say there’s three kinds of people:

    1. Those that make things happen
    2. Those that watch things happen
    3. Those that wonder what happened

If you’d like to be in the first group…
here’s the donation link for an outstanding conservative ready to replace Davis in the TX Senate.

MARK SKINNER FOR TEXAS SENATE

Texas Legislators Reconsider Abortion Regulations

children protest

Watched the live feed of those speaking before the committee last night
Also watched it last week when they had the zoot suit riot, and unlike a large number who got in their car and drove to Austin to scream about stuff that’s already addressed… I have read the bill.

Lotta misinformation floating around.

A few thoughts on the festivities….

-1- whether you do or dont approve of abortion, this bill will not make or break your position. It only lops them off *after* 5 months and requires the clinics to meet similar standards as other med facilities.

-2- those arguing against the bill on the grounds exceptions are needed probably havent read the bill, as it does provide exceptions involving the life of the mother or the baby.

-3- those arguing about rape or incest seem to forget that it’s unlikely to get past 5 months before anyone notices it happened. This bill should not have any affect on those circumstances aside from giving them a safer place to have the procedure if that’s what they elect to do.

-4- the abortion industry is *extremely* well funded. Having to meet higher medical standards might affect their profit margin but it should NOT make them go out of business. Ambulatory care clinics spring up on every 4th or 5th corner in DFW, they cant all be losing money if they’re opening more.

-5- Based on a survey done by UT, “The will of the people” is what the guys elected to the legislature appear to be about to pass, not what the noisy protesters are fighting to defeat. At no point should our laws be passed based on who can produce the most obnoxious violent mob and get them to Austin.

-6- if the guys hollering against this bill had half the popular support they claim, they wouldnt have had a Craigslist ad offering to pay for people to back their cause. Paid protesters are just whores… minus the quiet dignity.

-7- the talk about a return to the 1950s if this bill passes is flatulent hyperbole, and either they know better or they aren’t as intelligent as most domesticated pets.

-8- causing the abortion docs to meet the same standards already met by other clinics is NOT “an attack on the health of women”. If anything it makes them safer.

-9- using a child to wave your late-term abortion protest sign is…

  • — (a) sick
  • — (b) sending a mixed message
  • — (c) evidence your sense of irony needs a tuneup
  • — (d) all the above

And I thought they’d hit bottom with the paid protesters.

-10- the silliest argument I’ve heard is that if you aren’t cheering for late term abortions, you shouldn’t support the death penalty. The comparison of a child to a hardened murderer is silly, but I reserve the right to reverse course if I hear of a fetus shooting anyone while knocking over a liquor store.

The main problem appears to be one of terminology
The people favoring the bill call ’em “babies”. Their opponents say “fetus”, “zygote”.

Maybe if we agreed on a name we could agree on treatment.

I know, let’s call ’em “spotted owls”….

Texas State Senators should reflect our values, not those of Washington DC

The Reason Texans Will Now Pay For Another Special Session
As you may have heard, there was a bill before the Texas Senate that didn’t get passed, not because there weren’t votes to pass it, but because an unruly mob trucked in to raise a ruckus stopped the Senate from taking a vote with a childish and noisy near riot. Don’t take my word for it… check it out on youtube. Sad display.

Mob Rule is not “the voice of the people”, but nice try
At the heart of that mess was Wendy Davis, a Democrat in the TX Senate District 10 seat. For now. She attempted a filibuster of SB5, which would have placed restrictions on late term abortions at 20 plus weeks. It would also have required higher standards for abortion clinics, requiring them to have privs at hospitals and meet the same standards as other surgical clinics.

According to a survey run by University of Texas…
62% of Texans FAVOR restricting abortions after 20 weeks. LINK

Texas voters remain split on the permissibility of abortion but favor banning the procedure after 20 weeks of a pregnancy, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

But Wendy’s supporters say they are “the voice of the people”. How cute.

Per the survey they represent the voice of SOME people…
… but the guys elected to speak for us in Austin represented the voice of Texas. A rabble trucked in that disrupts a legislative session from performing their job does NOT. We are not subject to mob rule, no matter how sure you are that you’re smarter than most people in the state. Got it? Thanks, kids.

This morning at 9:30 her replacement will speak on Mark Davis show
Tune in to check it, or pick it up later on the podcast. LINK TO MARK DAVIS SHOW

We need a senator that represents Tarrant County values, not DC
Though her filibuster failed, Wendy got a shout out from our uber-cool president Barack Obama. I think it’s lovely that DC and Wendy get along, but take a note… if you want to be our senator in Austin,  we’d really prefer you reflect OUR values, not those of DC.
