Reformed Baptist, Teabagger Representative David Simpson (R) – Longview, sees new life in his crusade against the Fascists in Washington. Simpson is firm in his stance that the State has the right to disavow federal laws it disagrees with.Â His bill HB 1937 which wold enforce legal proceedings against TSA agents who touched peoples private parts was shut down last week when the feds implied they would not allow any flights originating in Texas to come into the rest of the good ol’ USofA if the law was enacted.
At that time, Teabagger favorite, State Senator Dan Patrick (R) caved in and withdrew his bill saying that he would not cave in to heavy handed threats by the federal government. This led to shock jock Alex Jones to claim Lt. Governor Dewhurst killed the bill and a call for the villagers to grab their pitchforks and head to the Capitol.
Well now after a weekend in Hell, Dewhurst has written a letter to The Gov requesting him to call a Special Session and reconsider the bill. Simpson says that his legislation only requires the Fascist TSA agents to do their duty upholding the Fourth Amendment language pertaining to search and seizure in the Constitution. He claims that the federal government wants to deprive the citizens of Texas of their constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 9 of the Texas Constitution. In an letter to Texas Legislators he uses the Teabagger adage of “If we do not stand for our citizens in the face of this deprivation of their personal rights and dignity, who will?”
Should be interesting to see if “The Gov.” wants a conflict with the Federal Government just as he prepares to throw his hat in the ring and announce that he wants to be the President, in charge of those same Feds. Get the popcorn and stay tuned.
