“If one more person says Happy Holidays to me I just might slap them. Either tell me Merry Christmas or just don’t say anything,” Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller
The thing is that Syrians are “rabid dogs” and “rattlesnakes” and bomb “the Muslim world” Sid Miller is just one of the same in all four Republicans elected to Texas statewide office.
Governor Gregg Abbott who campaigned with Ted Nugent.
Lt Governor Dan Patrick an Evangelical Right-wing radio show host who called for the execution of President Clinton AND First Lady Hillary Clinton for starting New Mexico on fire to destroy an incriminating hard drive of a Chinese spy.
And of course Attorney General Ken Paxton who in August was arrested and booked after a Texas grand jury indicted him on two felony first-degree securities fraud charges.
All four loud voices for campus carry laws that all university faculties private and public are unanimously opposed to as are about 90% of the students. But no matter, goes into affect January 1st. Along with open carry in stores, restaurants, bars, concerts, sporting events, churches courthouses.
Open carry is nothing more that a way for a tiny minority of right-wing gun enthusiasts to intimidate everyone else. If you see a white person with a gun, dial 911 just like you would if they were black.
Oh and have a Merry Goddamn Christmas!
All you may see of me for the next week or so is the back of my head in a beach chair in one of those Corona ads.
