It's not that it didn't age well, it was psychotic from the beginning.

It can age like fine milk left in the car for three weeks in Georgia and the death cult will still drink it up.

I was told there are no guns in California.

Only in the hands of thugs and Brave Patriots. Everyone else is weak and unarmed. Duh.

All texans love the murder of children. That's why they want to bring all pregnancies to term. So they all have more targets.

Thus my dilemma.  Do I move from Texas and save myself the fascism, or keep the blue vote here?

Get out while you still can.

If someone told me that tweet was from today, I'd have believed it, and thought nothing of it. That's where my expectations are.

I think it's unfair to call him out on a tweet that he wrote seven years ago when he was just some dumb young kid running for governor.

I'm sure he's got a more nuanced take now that he's had the experience of several more school shootings while governor.

I'm sure he's going to come out any day now and call for stronger restrictions on gun ownership.

Any


Day

You'll have a pretty good idea of whether that's going to matter after 2022 and 2024.  All depends of how successful the GQP is at disenfranchising voters.

He'll pass an executive order granting everyone guns.
 
2022-05-25 12:40:34 AM  
It only didn't age well if you think his voters are going to abandon him for saying it.

I suspect it aged just fine.  His idiot base probably still agrees with it.

Gun control is something y'all should figure out, but I don't really think it's gonna solve the problem. Culture needs to change. A little more collectivism, a little less "screw everyone else, I've got mine". A little more Mr. Rogers, a little less "24".

Get out.  Moving now means you beat the rush once this country splits up - buy in a blue state, that real estate will go up in value.

Yeah it's super-cute to point these tweets out, but now what? Pointing out their lunacy and hypocrisy means nothing. Pounding on a podium and lamenting "When does this end?" does nothing. Appealing to whatever sense of decency you think they might have does nothing. They are not acting in good faith; never have, never will. The executive branch needs to bring the hammer down on this, Withdraw federal ais from areas where local leadership are fetishizing guns. Hit them where it hurts, and don't worry about playing "fair," because the very idea of fairness is something that they hold in scornful contempt.

I've lived in Florida for 20 years. Voted blue until I was blue in the face.

Personally, I just don't think I can take it any more. I put in my time. I did everything I could to help. After November, I'm likely done here.

That whole definition of insanity thingy.

That's how I am in Florida. November 2022 is the bellwether for staying or going.

I now have the ability to escape to New England and will in a heartbeat.

Texas loves babies so much, they kill kids so the parents will have to make more.

My seven year old has never done a lockdown drill, or even heard of one.    She is going to school in a few hours and no one is going to worry about her getting murdered by some psychopath.  I can not explain the euphoria that brings me.   I am bothered by that.

I head back to the states tomorrow.

My husband is a veteran teacher (and the faculty sponsor of the Gay-Straight Alliance at a rural school), and we are both native Texans. We are leaving the only home we've ever known & relocating to Chicago. Even after decades of voting blue, we just can't stay here any more. From the loss of women's bodily autonomy, to having to turn over the every title in his classroom library, to being called a groomer and bing accused of indoctrination. And all for low pay & shiatty benefits. Enough is enough. We're out.

unfortunately the new American dream is to get the hell out of America. I came to that conclusion after my nephew got shot and almost killed in a drug deal gone bad. I'm originally from Indianapolis which apparently now has a higher per capita gun violence death rate higher than Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia. One of the mass shootings took place near one of my old neighborhood.

We live in Canada. We have had enough.enough of nearly losing our house to medical debt, sick of being threatened with getting shot, sick of social programs getting cut. We have an autistic daughter. We decided that we can't raise her in America, it would be throwing her to the wolves.

If the politicians keep voting down help, if they can't budge from their intransigence, then I don't know what to tell you. There are literally places in Greece that will pay you to live there. There are villages in Italy that have completely depopulated and need people. We are looking into those for our retirement.

But seriously, get out if you can.
