Their new laws are so convoluted they would have to illustrate them with photos before anyone could understand what is being outlawed
.
If this is all texas lawmakers have to do; they might as well pack up; go home; and french kiss their horses

They probably do things to their horses that we shouldn't even think about.

If this trend continues, I see companies that moved there from California beginning to look elsewhere.

Good.

yea, California companies moved to Texas to make more money and have less regulation, so they are going to move back to more regulation and much, much higher taxes because we pass laws that you don't like. I'm gonna put on the tin foil derby and see if I can catch that wave you are.

Our government is We the People. You don't like our laws, stay home. I have rights and my state has states rights despite what your mealy mouth vote buying politicians tell you. Anyway, that is not what the bills did.

Uh Oh, Kids in Texas "Get a Pretty Good Sex
Education from Their Animals"
That's the talk of Texas political pandering to
interests that don't want to fund real sex
education.

March 20, 2013 |

In 2009, an interim Texas school superintendent
declared that sex-education classes were
unnecessary in his rural district. Most of the
area’s school kids live on farms, he explained,
therefore:“They get a pretty good sex education
from their animals.”

It’s this kind of thinking that makes Texas so
special.

You're right. The bills simply made it clear to children in Texas that rules don't REALLY matter.

In Texas you don't have to follow the rules of a school. About as brilliant as "No Child Left Behind" was.

I remember when Texas changed their sex laws. They banned being homosexual but kept bestiality legal.

That says a lot!
