Shaking In Your Boots
February 9, 2016

It’s like a Stephen King book, y’all.

There’s some people – and I am told that they can read and write – who want Greg Abbott to be Donald Trump’s vice president.

“Trump — Abbott, that’s a ticket to make America great again and put the fear of God in America’s enemies, foreign and domestic!” Paul Nagy wrote in a recent post for The Hill, a Washington, D.C., online news outlet.

Abbott, who says he wants “to make sure that the presidential candidates understand the constitution” because, of course, only he does, has got his talking points in order.

Among his top priorities: banning sanctuary cities, creating “real ethics reform … not the watered-down version” passed in 2016, “criminalizing the sale of baby body parts” and continuing to push back against federal mandates.

He also said Texas should tighten its belt a little it but also try to give taxpayers some relief.

Abbott also noted federal warnings about refugees and said he believes it’s time “we had a president who heeds warnings … and puts American safety first.”

Okay, there are no sanctuary cities and nobody is selling baby body parts. Abbott wants ethics reform the same way I want scabies.

As far as federal mandates – that’s the only thing standing between Texas and closing down all the schools and teaching children to just read the Bible and guess at math.

Excuse me, but a man whose party encourages their elected officials to give six digit salaries to all their unqualified buddies ain’t gonna tell me how he’s gonna tighten belts on the backs of poor children and old women.

Spread the word: Greg Abbott makes Dick Cheney look sweet.
