The Stinking Rose Of Texas


There is, it's well past undeniable, no bottom to the descent into insanity of todays Republican party:
...Rep. Matt Schaefer (R-Tyler) put forward an amendment that would make it illegal to terminate a pregnancy after 20 weeks, even if a fetus “has a severe and irreversible abnormality,” effectively forcing families with wanted, but unsustainable pregnancies to carry to term at the behest of the state and against the advice of their doctors or their own wishes. 
Schaefer said, during debate over his amendment, that suffering is “part of the human condition, since sin entered the world.”...
Yeah, that's it. Sin. Especially women. That'll teach 'em.

Happily...
Even some Republican lawmakers opposed Schaefer’s proposal, casting it as a cruel and unnecessary intrusion into the lives of grieving Texans.
But...
Schaefer’s amendment passed, briefly, before state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer (D-San Antonio) filed a legislative point of order that prompted the bill’s sponsor to pull down the entire piece of legislation for review.
Texans, many of them anyway, are all about secession. What's taking them so long?

If they go, let's hope they take Kansas with them.
Public schoolteachers in Kansas could be jailed for teaching "harmful material," and university professors would be banned from signing op-ed letters with their titles when writing about public officials, if two new bills become law...
Truly, we are a nation of idiots.
