Don't Mess With Texas: State Preparing to Levy Fines and Even Imprison Officials Who Won't Enforce State Law Against Sanctuary Cities

God bless Texas, the Based State.

(I just found out recently that "Based" means "not caring about what others say and being proud to be defiant," or something like that. Though if I'm wrong about Teenage Internet Slang, let me know.)

Jazz Shaw digests an AP article:

. Out in the Lone Star State, Republicans are moving forward with a bill which would essentially ban sanctuary cities and impose some stiff penalties for those not in compliance. This is in keeping with statements that Governor Abbott has made in the past, so if it makes it to his desk it will likely go through. Part of it is the usual route of cutting off state funding and grants, but this one takes the additional step of holding leaders, including police chiefs and sheriffs, accountable. And that could mean fines or even jail time.

I just got an erection so full it began sprouting smaller, spikey erections. My dick now looks like a morningstar in that Frank Frazetta painting -- you know the one. And by "one," I mean all of them.

Sorry I Lied: I thought I remembered a Frazetta painting on one of those Ace fantasy books with Conan, or a Conan ripoff, smashing someone's head with a morningstar, but I can't find it, nor can I find any Frazetta paintings where the hero uses a morningstar. In some, you can see, amidst the Gigantic Pile of Slain Enemies, a morningstar sticking up from the human ruin, but I don't see any exemplars of morningstars as the hero's weapon.

A survey of Frazetta's oevure indicates that he chiefly worked in the medium of battle axes, with some sparing use of sword strokes, and occassionally just straight-up strangulation.
