  •  Trickle-down theory. (2+ / 0-)

    State legislators are going to drop important business in an effort to gain more power and both parties are going to majorly screw over the entire country.

    You mean like they've done to the country?
    Finally, something that actually trickled down... but not in a good way.

    I would point every attempt to do this right back on the Repubrigands, so the country knows who wanted to allow this garbage to fly.

    •  well, the Texas lege already did (0+ / 0-)

      we had three special sessions to real with the big emergency of redistricting. Not the emergency of there being children without health care, not the emergency of unemployment or the poverty level or air pollution, any other actually important thing. And the Supremes just said that's perfectly ok.

      Three or four million each session -- even after the Dems made it clear that they'd do anything (have you ever been to Ardmore?) to stop the redistricting. Gov. Goodhair just kept calling special sessions. And it worked. He got what he wanted, almost -- Congressman Doggett is still in office, which Perry & Tom Delay have to really hate.

      So, redistrict over and over and over until they grasp the concept that this is a bad idea. At least, we'd get a session or two of Congress with some decent people in it. As many people have said, let us not unilaterally disarm.

      We have done the impossible and that makes us mighty - Firefly
