ABBOTT THE DOG HATER

Abbott is following Trump's wake so well that he too now hates dogs. Abbott recently vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have ensured protection for dogs left in extreme weather conditions. Apparently, he wants a government that’s more bark than bite in terms of protecting people or dogs from extreme weather conditions, especially seeing that he is refusing to actually fix our grid issues. We need to get Abbott and his band of fools fired in November 2022. Sign our “Fire Abbott” petition if you agree.

BIG WEEK

This is a BIG week for ORTX! Be sure to tune into OR El Paso, OR Central Texas, and OR Harris county’s virtual meeting. Also OR San Antonio is having their first in-person meeting this Wednesday! Click any of the names above to RSVP. Let’s turn Texas progressive locally!

★★★

VP IN TEXAS

Vice President Kamala Harris visited El Paso this week. While in EP, she visited a border facility to meet with some of the survivors of violence who had to flee their country. She also met with local leaders, such as Congresswoman Veronica Escobar. “I and other advocates have long said El Paso is the new Ellis Island,” Escobar said. “We have been greeting asylum seekers and refugees at our nation’s front door for a very long time.”  We must ensure that the Biden-Harris immigration policy is one based on compassion, human rights, and justice for all. Click here to sign our petition calling for the Administration to fix our immigration system.

SUING GENERALISSIMO ABBOTT

Abbott recently did something unprecedented in Texas politics: he in effect vetoed an entire branch of government. At this point, he’s starting to act more like a Generalissimo than a Governor. He did this by cutting off the funding for most of the legislative branch. This came about after the Texas Dems stopped the GOP snakes from vetoing the voting rights for mostly black and brown Texans. Several TX Dem House members and staffers are suing Abbott in the Texas Supreme Court. Only time will tell what they say (seeing that the court is packed and partisan). Help us build our war chest to take on Abbott and the rest of the GOP snakes. Can you chip in $27 to help us prepare?

TYRANNY OF THE MINORITY

This isn’t going to shock anyone, but new polling shows how disconnected GOP snakes are with the majority of Texans. The long-short of the findings shows that the Texas GOP has embraced the tyranny of the minority. The perfect example of this is that a majority of Texans support cannabis legalization but the state government still refuses to legalize the plant. As Ross Ramsey of the Texas Tribune put it, “The government that purports to represent the majority of Texans often represents only the majority of the people in the party in power.” We’ll need both a strong war chest and an army of volunteers to turn Texas blue. Can you join our volunteer ranks as we prepare for 2022?
