February 5

Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas. Well. That was fun huh? I’m talking about the weekend in Eagle Pass. What we’re reading… “Convoy-goer Misty Gregory told MSNBC: “It’s not what I expected, but then again I don’t know what I expected. I can tell you it’s not as bad as what I thought, so that’s kind of eye-opening in itself.”” And… “Abbott and about a dozen other pro-razor-wire GOP governors were in Eagle Pass on Sunday, hollering and whatnot. Some residents said the recent invasion of Trump supporters from the convoy had been downright scary. “We are constantly being told that we’re being invaded, and that never felt true until today, when the convoy came to town in anticipation of the governors’ event,” Jessie F. Fuentes told WOAI NBC News Channel 4. “This is political theater by outsiders. The reality is that it has brought dangerous, violent groups into our beautiful, peaceful city. Eagle Pass is safer than most cities in America if you look at crime statistics. This is just a fact. We don’t appreciate these staged events that dramatically misrepresent our reality on the border and that invite extremist groups that pose a real danger to people in our community.”” More… “So God’s Army's foot soldiers came, in underwhelming numbers, and accomplished little beyond showing everyone how tragically gullible they are and making the locals twitchy. That’s MAGA in a nutshell: loud, threatening and, in the end, impotent. Trump won the presidency in 2016, and he hasn’t won a thing since. He’s the face of this supposedly forceful political movement, but the movement mirrors its creator, a loudmouth con artist who overpromises and rarely delivers a thing. It’s a comically disorganized and useless parade of con artists and the conned, drifting from one apocalyptic grievance to the next. The border is a serious issue. But God’s Army and Trump and his slavish enablers in the House are not serious people.” Truer words were never spoke. Congratulations on yet another failed exploitation of an issue that could be vastly helped if only your cohorts in DC would do their jobs. And if you would help just a little bit rather than just empty rabble rousing. There’s a serious border bill being offered. I thought that’s what you want?
