A couple of gems in this article, including U.S. Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas, 18th district) getting her name in the news for wasting paper and ink with her 'amendment'. Block federal funding to a volunteer group that is already receiving none, huh? Great idea Sheila. You truly are one of the deep thinkers of the world.
Not wanting to be outdone, Democratic Texas State Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa lead the charge to outlaw the part of the First Amendment dealing with free assembly. Thankfully, Texas Governor Rick Perry told Hinojosa, and the eleven other state senators that signed Hinojosa's resolution to ban the Minutemen from the state that "he can't ban people from legal activity."
Quote from Hinojosa: "I don't think that there's any doubt that there's a tinge of racism beneath the surface in their attempt to try to stop immigrants from Mexico," Hinojosa said. "Why don't they do that in Canada?" Hey, Chuy, perhaps it has something to do with the dearth of illegal immigrants coming down from the North.
Keep an eye on this one kids, strangely enough, paT and I are on the same page with this one.
