Ah, Texas!

Sweet, sweet relief

Like the jump scare at the end of a slasher movie, The Last Monument To The Confederacy is back. Scissorhead Fran tipped the following Tweet:

…and the Texas Tribune confirms that Gov. Abbott directed Texas State Troopers to arrest migrants and  “announced that Texas will build a border wall along the state’s boundary with Mexico — but provided no details on where or when.”

Nor, we might add, on how Texas will pay for it.

Abbott must be worried about a challenge and so is giving Donnie Two-Scoops the ultimate pledge of obedience in saying he’s all in on TFG’s agenda.

    As long as the new wall extends around the entire state of Texas, that’s a plan I’d get behind and want the US to pay for.

      It’s overkill.
      It was pointed out when TFG first talked of building a physical wall that there was a sort of virtual wall that accomplished the same thing without creating unnecessary physical barriers or doing that eminent domain thing where people’s land would be taken away from them for some stupid construction project. We could do the same for Texas without buying nearly as many bricks…
      Oh, you were joking, weren’t you?

      • Plus vast amounts of the non-water Texass border with Mexico are on private land, not mere wildlife refuge and “Native American reservation” like TFG bulldozed through Arizona. That gets expensive quick.

        Various agencies here in the TSKoA have tried the ‘Well we’ll just arrest alla messican ill eagles!!” only to have the courts point out to them that border enforcement is a FEDERAL gig, and states cannot enforce citizenship/residency matters.

        (5-star Joe Arpaio tried that as did the ‘tuff on the border crimin” Pinal County sherf who, it was later discovered, had a live-in boyfriend, which is ok, but he was also a Mexican national who had, ooopsie!! overstayed his tourist visa…)

        [Narrator] “Pinal County, at it’s closest, is about 150 miles north of the border. there are two counties between it and the border.”

    Abbott must be one of those ‘evangelical’ Catholics.

    And Abbot takes pole position (IYKWIMAITYD) in the race to be TFG’s next patsy, err… whipping boy, umm… sub… Judas goat? No! running mate.
    Running mate is the term I was looking for.

    Yes Abbot is now the favorite to be TFG’s “running mate” in the next coup attempt.

    As far as how they’re going to pay for it… well, they have all that money they didn’t spend on winterizing their power grid availlable.

    Name me a wall that people and animals haven’t gotten over, around under, and through, mr. abbot.

    When put under pressure the repubs sure do some stupid, weird things. Abbot is now in the lead of upping the crazy for the crazies.
