In yet another bonehead move, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas (God help me, my home state), announced he was putting forth $250 million of taxpayer dollars as a down payment on building a border wall between Texas and Mexico. Governor Abbott puts his idiocy on full display. Can't even govern properly to get the power grid in Texas fixed but hey...let's steal land from Texans and use vital funds to build a border wall that will stop nothing. It won't fix the problem with mass immigration. Desperate people will climb over, tunnel under, and just go around any fence. Meanwhile, we'll have blackouts and brownouts, and people will die from heatstroke just like they died from hypothermia during the week-long February deep freeze. This crap move (in a long line of crap moves by ignorant and tone-deaf Republicans) is the end of Abbott's career as governor as he takes up the failed Trump line all for an endorsement from a cheap, lying, raping, twice impeached, one term crimin
I saw this today on Facebook, shared by a dear, lifelong friend. It struck me to the core, and it applies to so many situations happening right now. Read it and take a moment to reflect. (Originally from the account of Psychedelic Dreamer, Oct. 2020) If you collect 100 black ants and 100 red ants and put them in a glass jar nothing will happen, but if you take the jar, shake it violently and leave it on the table, the ants will start killing each other. Reds believe that black is the enemy while black believes that red is the enemy when the real enemy is the person who shook the jar. The same is true in society. Men vs Women Left vs Right Rich vs poor Faith vs Science Gossip, rumors, etc ... Before we fight each other, we must ask ourselves: Who rocked the jar? Let's ask ourselves who shakes the jar of racial division? Who shakes the jar on women's reproductive rights? Who shakes the jar on transphobia? Who shakes the jar on LGBTQ+ rights? Who shakes the jar in the Gaza strip?
