Well Mr Perry, show us that Texan exceptionalism and put the pressure on the Republican Majority Leader in your State to pass the bill that will stop the TSA from molesting our wives and pre-teen daughters!
That bill is going nowhere it is unconstitutional because of the violation of the “Sumpremacy Clause”. The only decent reason for supporting this Dead Letter is to whip up support among those who do not accept this. With perhaps millions of illegals on the loose resources should not be wasted bringing up charges against TSA personnel with virtually no chance of conviction.
Perry has lots of important and constitutional stuff to spend his time on including campaigning if he has any intention of running. I suspect he is going to run and would improve the field greatly should he do so.
“Well Mr Perry, show us that Texan exceptionalism and put the pressure on the Republican Majority Leader in your State to pass the bill that will stop the TSA from molesting our wives and pre-teen daughters!”
He did add it to the agenda. But the Texas legislator only meets for 140 days every 2 years, they got a lot to do and very little time to do it.
Don’t ask Texans to change that, cause most Texans would probably prefer the legislator meet only 2 days every 140 years. Simply put legislators do more harm then good on net. Even when they are standing up for your rights they are not too far away from usurping them somewhere else.
What is humiliating in the case of the TSA is the way the Senate backed down, under threat. Texas senators aut to be ashamed of themselves for humiliating not only themselves but the whole State of Texas with their cowardly act of backing down to the bully.
I’m thinking we might be wise to tease them about this for the rest of theses senators day’s, or at least until they find the courage within themselves to stand up to theses bullys.
