One of the most repeated phrases in this deal is "it's not just the 20 cents". It's a reference to the spark of the first tumults that then rose to the current state: The raise in public transport tariffs. The government went back on that decision and tried to take the issue lightly.

This is way more what the whole deal is "about":

VAT of 47%?

Texas state Rep Jodie Laubenberg should watch some Law and Order: SVU to learn what a rape kit does. "in the emergency room, they have what's called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out."
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Texas will not always be a red state, and the more Republicans try to crawl into our uterus, the faster it will turn blue.


I seriously lost my shit when I read that. The article itself was full of the usual "what the FUCK, Texas!?" but that line just made my day.

Texas can't become blue fast enough.

But seriously... again... leave abortion legislation to women!

“Through their duly elected representatives, the citizens of our state have made crystal clear their priorities for our great state,” Perry said in his proclamation.

So Texas has no problems with the economy, or social welfare issues, or taxes, or any number of other things? Why the fuck did they attach the abortion bill to a transportation/juvenile justice bill then?

Srsly, can we just give Texas back to Mexico?

I think Mexico already has many problems of its own.

So if I understand the news article correctly the democrats sent one women to the speaker´s podium to killtalk the bill for 11 hours, the capitol was full of people who were protesting the bill and he wants to try it again?

Yes. These so called small government advocates dont get the irony about them setting the rules that control a uterus that they clearly do not own.

The problem is that when they do take a vote, it will get through. They know that the only way to stop it is obstruction. So they get to ignore all the protesting and say that they must be in the right because they have a majority.

The irony lies on perry's remark that the reps are just following the will of the people.

I'm willing to bet if it went to popular vote it would pass, so Perry might not be wrong. I think there would be enough Christian anti-abortion sentiment to carry it.

Yes, there are protesters, but they may not - and probably don't - represent the majority of the people. We're talking about the state that invented the "Texas Textbook". These people have been raised without the benefit of reality.

The biggest cities are turning blue... Wendy Davies is from the DFW metroplex, Houston elected its first openly lesbian mayor, Austin itself has always been blue, San Antonio is turning blue as well, and the rio grande valley has been blue for at least 10 years.

Another curious number: the combined value of the senators, deputies and their ilk (around 60k people) goes over five billions per year. More than the country's budget for research. Or police.

Each gets about 26 grand a month, plus another 15 grand spread among a series of benefits, unlimited health care of all sorts, fueling, private security. Most work roughly 3 days per week and take 2 months of vacation per year. Any given day where they work past their normal daily journey is worth an entire salary's extra.

I'd have liked to see the Bolivian plane to crash, if only because it would be a political nightmare for Portugal, France AND the US.
