Well It's "T" For Texas, "T" For Total Whack Job.....

WHEN IT COMES to democracy and election transparency, Greg Abbott, the attorney general of Texas, is apparently taking his cues from post-Soviet autocrats like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Kazakhstan’s Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Like Mr. Putin, whose election czar called international election monitors in Russia “spies,” and Mr. Nazarbayev, who threatened to bar monitors altogether, Mr. Abbott, a Republican, is deeply discomfited that a few of them will be in the Lone Star State on Election Day. He is threatening to have them arrested and criminally prosecuted should they violate a state law that bans political party workers or other loiterers from coming within 100 feet of polling places...

...One likely effect of Mr. Abbott’s grandstanding, which was seconded by Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), is to hand a propaganda gift to dictators and autocrats everywhere. They may now cite his example as evidence that the United States is no more open to electoral scrutiny from outsiders than they are. Don’t mess with Texas — or with Belarus!

    Lose the deodorant Ban ? A new campaign button strategy ? Couldn't be another mid 70's deja-vu ruling that made **** Security higher than more than 2 dozen US Constitutions in this country, without a legal precedent to cite; but what else could supercede the christiananality super ego mentality.......another Total Whack the election Jobber or more Texans to have colluded to kill JFK with the crooks on Capitol Hill ?

    Have you ever been experienced?

    Mike,

    Despite the ranting of the real or fake delusional madman, it is not your fault that your State is governed by retrograde fools.

    Dave... What's the fascination with the 70s? Seems to be a reoccurring theme.

    As if it would really matter on the eve of election night ? Maybe it should play on Broadway or how they had 9/11 to make sure all the elections that were fixed in the 1970's & probably the 80's, 90's, 2000's & 2010's weren't overturned; including where they tend to do things big as America's team of totalitarian whack job specialists !
    So to summarize, you are experienced.
