  1. I certainly hope a lot of people are going to properly and powerfully challenge this foolish governor–and his foolish legislature. He continues to put both feet in his mouth at once. He has to be one of the dumbest governors in the country. And that’s saying a lot. We saw many signs of that ignorance during his campaign for the Republican nomination for president in 2012. But who’s to blame? Like everywhere else, it’s the voters in Texas, the people of Texas. They have hired and rehired that foolish governor. Is it any wonder why Texas is one of the laughing stocks of the nation? Like “secession.” Remember that one? It seems it would have been wiser to let Texas follow his foolish lead.
