We interrupt this regular blog on the Adventures of Team Danger for a brief political rant.
Everyone's least favorite governor's Veto Deadline, oh, I'm sorry, his "Signing" Deadline is on Monday, so of course he managed to veto 23 bills today. Included among the bills he vetoed was HB 242, which would have made it a crime to text while driving.
The Guv's rationale for vetoing the bill? A bill that, mind you, was ratified by an absurdly Republican-controlled Texas Legislature? That while "texting while driving is reckless and irresponsible … House Bill 242 is a government effort to micromanage the behavior of adults.”
This, from the man who signed a bill a few months back requiring every pregnant woman to get an ultrasound prior to a termination, no matter what the circumstances.
God forbid the government "micromanage the behavior of adults."
Unless, of course, its an adult WOMAN's behavior we are talking about.
What a moron.
My body, my choice.
