Texas Justice Strikes Down Texas Injustice

Good news

Today reason returned to the Lone Star State. Despite despicable, underhanded chicanery, the Republicans in Texas, led by Rick Perry on a personal mission of anti-woman's rights, were dealt a major setback. The war surely hasn't been won yet, but the battle of Wendy Davisburg has been claimed and the winner is the women of the entire state of Texas.

Texas has had many champions over the years, but none sit taller in the saddle today than District Judge Lee Yeakel. With the stringent new regulations scheduled to go into effect tomorrow, the federal judge wrote Monday that "...these regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients and would unreasonably restrict a woman's access to abortion clinics."

WAPO:

Judge Lee Yeakel

Judge Lee Yeakel represents a legal victory for abortion rights providers, who had challenged new requirements that abortion doctors must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic and that all abortions must take place in surgical centers, rather than allowing women to take abortion drugs at home

Now, and for the time being, women will continue to have the protections they had under the law, and that Wendy Davis fought so hard to protect. Medication taken at home as prescribed by a licensed doctor will continue to provide choice to women. Clinics will remain open and patients will be granted access, without having to drive hundreds of miles or more to get the medical care and express the choice that the Supreme Court granted under Roe v. Wade.

So take that, Governor Perry, and stick that under your ten-gallon hat. You and your cronies are going to be the great state of Texas's downfall. Healthcare and women's rights are coming. You can't stop progress. But we can stop you. Go ahead and run for President again. You'll meet the same fate as before. A resounding defeat at the polls. Next time you try to think of the three government departments you want to shut down, the third one is your political future.

According to Texas First Lady, Texas is a Country, Therefore Ted Cruz Is Not A US Senator

What

Okay, no wonder the lone star state is in trouble -- they have easily befuddled, often confused Rick Perry as their chief of state.

But to hear his wife, Anita Perry on Saturday being interviewed at the Texas Tribune Festival, she's first lady of the country of Texas, not state of Texas.

The interview below is the proof in the pudding. At 1:58 of the video, First Lady of the new country of Texas says there are only four countries in the world that allow abortions, Texas being one of them.

Well, for all those Texas secessionists out there, you seemingly got your wish. Good luck to you, the country of Texas. BTW, would you please remit funds for the state roads, bridges, libraries, fire stations, police stations, US federal installations and all the other public services and facilities that we've been paying for. As a sovereign country, you have no more right to these US investments. You gotta get your own.

Oh, and while you're at it, please take your senators back. We're pleased to return "former" senators John Cornyn III and Rafael 'Ted' Cruz. Good luck with them as leaders of your new, national government.

How interesting that First Lady Anita Perry publicly disagrees with her husband, (what is he called in your land, King?) Rick, on a woman's right to an abortion. She states at 02:36 of the interview that abortion is a woman's RIGHT.  At 02:42 of the tape, she's asked to clarify that the interviewer heard her correctly -- she's in favor of women's right to  make their own decision regarding abortion.

She confirms it and goes so far as to prominently say that she won't criticize State Senator Wendy Davis, for her stand on abortion rights. Seemingly she agrees.

Listen for yourself. Here is the First Lady, or perhaps now she's called Queen Anita I, of the sovereign country of  Texas:
