A symbolic horse head in every citizen's bed

When a friend asked me to defend my assertion that Governor Abbot’s actions amounted to extortion and were deeply corrupt, I replied that, “It’s clearly meant to destroy the Biden presidency and punish the entire country for the fact that a Democrat was elected to that office. A symbolic horse head in every citizen’s bed. It serves as a future warning , i.e., elect a Democrat and everyone will suffer.”

White House, truckers blast Texas as inspections snarl Mexico traffic

Huge, multi-mile traffic jams at numerous U.S. border crossings in Mexico worsened Wednesday as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) largely kept in place his new restrictions that require secondary inspections of commercial trucks and other vehicles.

The new policy, announced last week, has led some truckers to remain snarled in traffic for more than 30 hours, prompting desperate pleas from fruit and vegetable importers, the auto industry and other executives who said their products are being caught up in a political standoff.

In an afternoon news conference, Abbott said he would relax inspections only on trucks entering Texas from Nuevo León, Mexico, because that region’s governor had agreed to tighter security measures. But he was keeping the restrictions up in other entry points until other governors would follow suit.

“Clogged bridges can end only through the type of collaboration that we are demonstrating today between Texas and Nuevo León,” Abbott said.

Businesses on both sides of the border were not mollified by the governor’s Wednesday announcement, and they said the economic consequences were piling up.

1. Even when in power, the GOP harms, threatens, kills people.

Gun violence, Covid, insulin prices....

Americans are just collateral damage in their quest for power and wealth.
