    Wasn't Texas part of the Confederacy?

    We should not be surprised when Texan politicians express xenophobia toward anyone who might actually compete with them for jobs, but want to keep their servants.  

    From outlawing collective bargaining, to eliminating the minimum wage, to undocumented domestic servitude, to contracting prison labor to for-profit companies... all of this is more prevalent in the states of the Confederacy.  The mindset has always been that it is OK to consider humans as resources to be exploited.
