By calling a special session for July 1, does this mean Wendy Davis was a waste of time?

What is the new plan to fight this?

2. Nope, it makes Perry and the other shitbirds look like the asses they are

 

She turned it into a single-issue session.

3. No. There is more support now

to defeat these thugs than ever before. I bet there is tons of money pouring in, too. That'll help get more women, especially, fired up to fight again.

4. It depends how much importance you attribute to symbolism.

 

From everything I've read, passage of the bill she blocked is virtually assured in the upcoming special session.

6. no

Probably enough support to stop it via not allowing a quorum after the success of last night.

7. like i said last night.

the bill will eventually pass
and be ruled unconstitutional

but the GOP has done more in the last 24 hours to turn texas blue than anything else they could have done.
last night was just the first tiny step on the road to a blue texas. there will be setbacks along the way. but we WILL win. the rethugs days in control of texas are numbered.
we WILL see texas turn blue and the last 24 hours has moced that day up.
maybe not 2014 but i expect big gains in the texas legislature
by 2016--- we could have a democratic governor
by 2020 the GOP can kiss off any chance of wining anything in texas

10. How much money will this special session cost Texas?

Money that the citizens of West Texas could have used to help rebuilding.

11. unfortunately, while she was standing up for women, scotus was making sure

texas gerrymandering would cost her her seat. hopefully, she will run for a federal seat. we need more like her in congress.

13. REALLY stupid question

meant only as flamebait. I've noticed you have a history of same. Usually your schtick is pitting young against old, though. I see you're expanding your horizons. Bravo!

14. Not at all

What it means is that her actions and the actions of her Democratic colleagues are that much more admirable and remarkable. The actions of last night and this morning will be remembered.

15. Wendy Davis is a hero now. Not a waste of time.

 


Elevating her to national recognition is good for us. She even hinted at running for Governor on MSNBC this evening.


This has to be big news in Texas. It wasn't a waste of time. Even if the law does get passed it shows that some (D)s are still willing to fight the good fight and that they can be rewarded politically by doing so.

16. It shows people the repubs give not one shit about the will of the people, that they will lie,

 

cheat, and steal to get their way even when the people gather and make known their will. It has gathered people together to fight it, increasingly. May they gather in ever greater numbers and shut down the republican take machine.

It's all good

17. Depends on how important you think symbolic victories are

The bill will almost certainly pass, eventually.
