Republicans often criticize Democrats of being unwilling to tackle the big issues. Texas just showed them how to get serious as lawmakers:
Texas legislators appear to have too much time on their hands. Members of the House of Representatives just passed legislation protecting everyone’s right to say “Merry Christmas.”
Next on their agenda: a measure preserving the rights of Texans to breathe oxygen and eat barbecue. Fighting for rights you already have is like showing up at the wrong time for a football game and declaring victory because the other side wasn’t there.
To quote dad:
We must glorify these brave solon’s staunch protection of the right of every Texan to wish Merry Christmas to every Jew, Muslim, atheist, Hindu, Zoroastrian, and Aztec. Next up is outlawing the evil wishing of “Happy Holidays”.
