Waller County, Texas hates Bicyclists AND Blacks

https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/transportation/article/waller-bicyclists-hit-truck-teen-driver-ironman-16490862.php
Teen who ran over 6 cyclists outside Houston walks free
Authorities are tight-lipped about whether or not the teenager would face any charges after the fact.

It is not clear why the teenager was not immediately arrested. Representatives at the Waller County District Attorney's Office did not answer questions about the case but instead referred to a Facebook post saying it is still under investigation by police.

Death of Sandra Bland
Sandra Bland was a 28-year-old African-American woman who was found hanged in a jail cell in Waller County, Texas, on July 13, 2015, three days after being arrested during a pretextual traffic stop.[1][2] Her death was ruled a suicide. It was followed by protests against her arrest, disputing the cause of death and alleging racial violence against her.[3][4]

Bland was pulled over for a minor traffic violation on July 10 by State Trooper Brian Encinia. The exchange escalated, resulting in Bland's arrest and a charge of assaulting a police officer. The arrest was partially recorded by Encinia's dashcam, a bystander's cell phone, and Bland's own cell phone. After authorities reviewed the dashcam footage, Encinia was placed on administrative leave for failing to follow proper traffic stop procedures.[5][6]




That is all.

Manchin and Sinema may be scared of President Joe's Bipartisan push on Infrastructure

Because if it succeeds in prying lose 2 sane Republican Senators to vote for their constituents' Best Interests and not the party line on the 3.5 T Infrastructure Bill...

They will lose ALL their power and influence and become just 2 more Senators on the losing side.

And there are very possibly 2 rethugs who may be swayed out of the 7 who voted to impeach TFG.

7 GOP Senators Voted To Convict Trump. Only 1 Faces Voters Next Year

Of those seven Republicans, two are retiring and only one — Alaska's Lisa Murkowski — faces her state's voters in the next election cycle, 2022.
...
Senator: Richard Burr, North Carolina
Senator: Bill Cassidy, Louisiana
Senator: Susan Collins, Maine
Senator: Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
Senator: Mitt Romney, Utah
Senator: Ben Sasse, Nebraska
Senator: Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania


Let those of us who live in their States start putting pressure on them to support the President's push to make America THE modern Economic Powerhouse for the next 20 years.

After all, the Horse may sing.

Jim Cahill FTW. Get your happy self to the polls in 2022.

https://twitter.com/tech_52/status/1434715265556787201

Methinks that Conservatives have over reached once again. I was a bit worried about 2022, but no more. Thanks to the vicious conservative fools in Texas and Mississippi and other barbaric Red places turnout by the Good People of this country is going to be way up. Another Blue Wave is building, shades of 2018 and 2020.
