Thread: Texas, this is why we laugh at you.

    Default Texas, this is why we laugh at you.

    http://static.texastribune.org/media...Y_PLATFORM.pdf

    So the Texas GOP has put forward their platform for the next year. Some gems include:

    - outlawing pornography
    - outlawing sodomy
    - outlawing RU-486 as well as the morning after pill
    - outlawing abortion in general
    - outlawing the removing of feeding tubes, even in cases of a living will requesting exactly that
    - prohibiting public funding of Planned Parenthood
    - establishing a mandatory HIV/AIDS database to track anyone who is HIV positive
    - teaching intelligent design and global warming denialism in classrooms
    - preventing any homosexuals from getting protections afforded by the Americans with Disabilities Act

    It's a real doozy, folks. They're not just social conservatives anymore, they're social regressives.

    good things all conservatives are the same, just as all liberals are the same.

    Do you mean sick people who happen to be homosexual, or does Texas consider homosexuality to be a disease?

    I don't recall ever saying anything to that effect. I even pointed out that it was TEXAS GOP that did this, knowing full well that the Texas Republicans are a very different beast from, say, Massachusetts Republicans.

    Their position paper specifically says they want to amend the ADA so that it excludes any disease, stress or disorder that stems from "homosexual practices", whatever that means.

    It's Texas. Can we expect them to behave any differently?

    Texas is the place that without the fact that my San Antonio Spurs are there, is just fucking useless. One for having the Dallas Cowboys, and two for their retardedness of their politicians and constituents. I want to know the last time a democrat was governor of Texas.

    Wow, what a waste of tax payer money. Most of these things have already been ruled unconstitutional by the supreme court so they won't be able to be enforced. Those that haven't been, will be.

    Was she the governor before George W Bush that died only 2 or 3 years ago? I just am really starting to hate Texas now.
