Republicans are doing smart in Texas

Built and building several Community Centers for movies, job procurement and covered dish suppers ALONG with Republican blah blah. These are available right now plus 4 or 5 new centers coming. What do you think that will do for Republican votes? Afraid TX is going to be blazing RED.

Wow. Investing in their communities?

Good for them! Maybe they’re seeing the light.

I am all in-favor of locals building what's best for locals. And that government is often the method of last resort.

But that premise is predicated on :

1) Strong shared ethical standard that is enforced by the local society.

2) Good education

3) Being open-minded to include different voices.

Bad examples of government being involved - building NFL football stadiums. I see no reason for governmental handouts for billionaires.

Good examples of private citizens building for the good of their community - private NFL football stadiums. If a billionaire made a ton of money in their community, and they want to 'give back' by building a 21st century cathedral, go for it.

What's the plan in Texas? The cynical in me is doubtful it's a giving back scenario.

It is a Republican ploy hidden in suppers, movies etc. There will be plenty of Republican propaganda for sure. Smart move however to get votes. Seems aimed in cities with large Hispanic populations.

I understand what Suzanne is talking about. These will be similar to many churches only more blatant.

It's all community until the local LGBTQ group wants to book a room.

Cultural rehabilitation, anyone?

Yes, all well and good to invest in communities, but I'm very cynical when it comes to a party that has been far more invested in accruing power than in fostering a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Didn't 45* promise Infrastructure Week, to build new roads, highways, bridges, airports, tunnels, and railways, blah blah blah?

That seems like real for the people activity.

What has Red Hatted League delivered on that front?

But as long as these community sites aren't designated as Mask Free Refuges, I guess there's no harm.

Yeah, I'm probably unnecessarily cynical.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I can't.

As with September 11, these are my days of infamy.
