No, I am not for special sessions of legislatures, which avoid normal legislative rules. There was nothing making this issue particularly timely that
called for a special session of the Texas legislature. If there were some actual emergency of some sort, or some other new issue that all of a sudden
reared its head and needed immediate attention, then I can see a reason for a special session. I'm not defending special sessions just to make
prosaic governmental policy, but you seem to be for it.
My point in bringing up the fact that this was a special session used as an underhanded political tactic, was that you were criticizing what the
citizens of Texas were doing to protest the previous attempted power grab by Texas Republicans on this same issue.
But you know, special sessions of legislative bodies is not what this thread is about. It is about the heavy-handed, sexist and discriminatory
security practices of the Republican-controled state house, and how evidently tampons and sanitary napkins are a security threat, but guns and bullets
Yet everyone defending these heavy-handed and ridiculous practices are accusing these female Texas citizens of being satan worshippers, harboring
fecal matter under their fingernails, or intent to soil feminine products with menstrual blood and hurling them at the lawmakers. Like the DPS,
you're trying to deflect the issue by making specious claims about these citizen protesters planning to hurl jars of human waste at the lawmakers
without providing any evidence of it. Until the DPS shows some of these jars of human waste and paint, and can verify that people actually brought
them in, I am not buying it.
Are you really suggesting that the Capitol House troopers would JUST confiscate jars of urine or fecal matter? get serious. They would arrest any
such persons doing so.
All you conservatives and Republicans can do is deflect, deflect, deflect. You refuse to deal with the facts of the matter.
