Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.

Texas Politicians have their priorities

To go along with the Colorado state representative who wants to put boxing gloves on roosters, and the Alabama legislator who wants to ban books which are by, or mention, homosexuals, we now have proof that the great state of Texas has legislators of their own with a keen sense of propriety and priority.

Representative Al Edwards wants a state law to regulate the dances of cheerleaders, though he can’t actually describe what it is he is trying to ban, nor how he will regulate the local schoolboards which would be forced to implement his law.

With Texas ranking 10th in the nation for seniors living in poverty, 9th for children living in poverty, and 1st for the percentage of people without healthcare, and ranking 1st, by far, in the number of executions, it’s good to see the politicians focusing on what __really__ matters.
