The Texas legislature had a chance yesterday to drive the last nail in the coffin of the Texas based TSA’s ability to sexually abuse children and grandmothers in wheel chairs.
The cowardly weasel, House Speaker Joe Straus along with the conniving Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and his equally dishonest ally, Governor Rick Perry put enough fear into enough house members to kill the bills authored by Congressman David Simpson and Senator Dan Patrick that would have criminalized TSA agents who chose to “just follow orders” that instructed them to feel around in the panties of the least likely terrorists on Earth.
If Texas and other states used their brains instead of their collective wallets to rake in campaign funds in return for back scatter x-ray machines, more power and less constitutional restrictions, they’d do the sensible thing and hire employees like those starring in the following video.
Texans who help reelect Straus, Dewhurst and Perry deserve what they get: lying, cowardly, third rate crooks.
