  1. He is a leader within the party, but not a party leader. It is the state party who brought this suit. He can only pledge what his own actions will be. Not sure how much control he has over West et al. and they are the origin of this foolishness. Getting called a RINO a lot these days, but that just makes me like him more.
  2. The worst part of our outbreak here is in South Texas. I know that they are transferring Covid patients from El Paso etc. up here to North Texas hospitals because they are running out of beds for them down there.
  3. Glad to see this statement come across my newsfeed this morning from our Texas Speaker of the House. There remains some sanity in the GOP. https://www.facebook.com/SpeakerJoeStraus/posts/3348933978494642
  4. Because the Biden campaign complained. Not all investigations find a crime. I just don't see this as any different from any of the "Ridin' with Biden" parades and such outside Trump speeches. They are trolling each other. This is protected speech. BTW, when Harris appeared here in the Stop Six area, just south of me, a handful of Trump supporters showed up with signs outside and actually were threatened. Big yawn from practically everyone, including the Trumpers who just left.
  5. Seriously. Counter protesters are to be expected. There was no threat. All the “OMG, some of those trucks might have guns in them!” Yet not one instance I have seen recorded involving a gun. And I have watched multiple videos of the vehicle accident. The dippy staffer in the car with California plates moved into that truck’s lane. While I would personally have swerved to the shoulder to avoid the accident rather than holding my lane, that would only have been to protect my own vehicle.
  6. Of course he doesn’t love Texas. But honestly the Dems are being whiney little children here.
  7. I don’t either. At least none among my friends. That is why this sign was so unexpected.
  8. Saw my first neighborhood Trump/Pence yard sign yesterday. Very oddly, it is in the yard of a black family. I recognize the people enough to wave at them if they are outdoors when walking the dog, but have never had an extended enough conversation to know that much about them. Very curious.
  9. Right. And the outlet malls. But it has been quite a while since we were down there.
  10. I am familiar with that area. It is essentially a suburb of Austin. I would not consider it at all representative of Texas in any forecasts. Also an area of high growth for various reasons.
  11. My mom is in her eighties and just voted Biden/Harris plus GOP for our senator. Hers was less strategic. She just disliked Cornyn's challenger more than she did him.
  12. Has he made any mention of the Church blessing these unions? AFAIK he was speaking of civil unions. But I haven’t seen the statement in full context.
  13. OMG. Searched on twitter to see the headlines on this and there are a bunch of images purporting to be screenshots of the zoom meeting. 🤮. I really did not want to see that, true or not. He seems to be characterizing his behavior as a, "mistake." Not buying it. The failure to mute the camera may have been in error, but pleasuring himself during a meeting was absolutely not. It is creepy!
  14. Was he fired? I haven't followed this closely, but had the impression he was permitted to take a voluntary and temporary leave of absence. Seeing in his background why he is so pro abortion, though, after trying to coerce his mistress into aborting the child he made then denying paternity. What an awful person. But frankly, irrelevant to me. I don't watch CNN.
  15. Most recent forecast I have heard is late December for the Pfizer. Looking like my husband and mother will qualify initially but not me. But my primary issue has been keeping myself safe to keep them safe. Safety practices will continue but a vaccine will give me some added peace of mind.
  16. I used to like Guiliani. But his credibility in recent years is in the toilet. I don't know what to think about all this, but hope somebody is seriously looking into it to either definitely disprove or affirm it. Then take action appropriately.
  17. Harris brought up the topic during the hearings. Not clear on what her point was but ...
  18. Is it not an intrusion on their freedoms to have to wear pants?
  19. Geez. Mandatory masking here to enter public places and it is practically useless because so many gomers pull them down under their noses when they get inside. I will never understand why people are so angrily opposed to mask wearing and whining about is as much as they are. And the lack of common sense! Last week, for example, I stood at an appropriate distance waiting for a lady to select a pound of ground beef. She literally handled every single package on the shelf! No idea why since they were all identical. I finally decided to get what I needed at the butcher counter, figured it was more sanitary.
  20. Idiot here. I do not regret my vote for Johnson. While not a perfect candidate, he was and remains preferable to me to the two candidates running in 2016 police wise and ethics wise. And if it was another Clinton v Trump match up this year, I would be writing in Romney, even knowing what I know now. I plan, with severe reservations primarily because of their refusal to disavow court packing, to vote for Biden/Harris. But for this same reason, among others, I will be voting for Cornyn again. Things do not go well in our country when one party holds the Executive Office plus both Senate and House; we need at least one to serve as a check on the others.
  21. Lol. It was intended as a slam at Trump ... and Paxton. Barrett is qualified. She is smart. She will make a good justice. That she has repeatedly refused to rule on hypotheticals is a recommendation in my book.
