Texas' Ban on School Mask Mandates Temporarily Denied by Court

"The taxes Supreme Court is temporarily allowing school districts to implement mask mandates. Correspondent Tanya J. Powers has more the Texas Supreme Court's ruling leaves in place. A temporary restraining order from Travis County Judge Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Governor Greg Abbott had wanted the state Supreme Court to overrule that judge. Here's what all that means. Some school districts in Texas have been putting their own mask mandates in place in opposition to Governor Greg Abbott's ban on them. The court has now cleared the way for those districts to enact their own mask rules. Meanwhile, although Covid 19 vaccinations have increased in recent weeks, the delta variant continues to spread rapidly among the unvaccinated, including Children. According to the Texas Tribune. The two main groups that remain unvaccinated across Texas are white conservatives in rural areas, along with Hispanics and blacks in big cities. Among the unvaccinated are five million Children, many of them who are not eligible for the vaccine. Overall, about nine million vaccine eligible Texans have not gotten the shot just over 50% of Texans are fully

South slammed by winter storm, millions left without power in Texas

"O'Dowd. This is here and now much of the country is in the path of a major winter storm today that is icing over roads, closing airports and causing rolling power outages for millions of Americans. Oklahoma City plunged to a record low six degrees below zero this morning. The last time I got even close to that cold was more than a century ago, Alana Roach to a reporter at the Texas Tribune woke up to an unfamiliar scene here. She is with her four year old daughter, Remmy and 17 month old son, Patrick. We are in Austin, Texas, on Welcome this morning to see what outside Ram Snow. Yeah. What do you want to do in it today? No angels and I'm Valley. No man's Yeah. How beautiful is our backyard? And that scared? It may look good. It may look beautiful, but it's also dangerous. Joining us now is Mark Elliott, a meteorologist and storms specialist at the Weather Channel based in Atlanta. Mark busy day Thanks for making time for us. Absolutely. You're not kidding. And then first let's focus in on Texas because we do not hear about snow and cold like that very often. How unprecedented have the conditions been in Texas? I mean, by all measures. This is just an incredible weather pattern that led to some incredible weather. That's really not done yet. I mean, as an example, you're just hearing from that family in the Austin area. They're gonna have single digit low temperatures when they wake up tomorrow morning, which is on Lee happened eight times in the long Recorded history of the Austin area. I mean, this is an impressive cold air outbreak by all measures and to see the snow across Texas. Very impressive as well. San Antonio officially had six inches of snow from this storm. Wow. Well, this has been going on for a few days because there was recently that terrible pile up around Fort Worth where nine people died on and now looks like every county in Texas is under a state of emergency. And we're seeing millions of people there who don't have power because of the burden on the power grid. It's just so great. So how dangerous is a storm like this? Yeah, I think it's a little bit under appreciated. How? How stress the body can get over When underneath these extreme cold conditions, You have to take all kinds of precautions. I mean, everyone was saying, you know, don't go traveling unless you absolutely have to, and I think most people are listening to that. But, you know, have blankets in the trunk of your car. In case you do get stuck somewhere Know where those extra blankets are in your house. In case you're you know, you lose power for an extended period of time. It is not a comfortable thing to go through. We'll put it that way, Right. And when windshields are that low in a place like Texas, where it doesn't happen very often, it might be worth it. For people to know. Like, what does it feel like? And how dangerous how long can you be exposed to that kind of weather? You know, and single digit temperatures like we are forecasting into central, even portions of southern Texas along with wind chills. That will be even colder than that when you could get frostbite outside in a matter of minutes, So, yes, it's fun, right? Do you have the kid? There's a fun side to this novelty of snow in Texas. But you do need to protect your skin. You need to make sure that you're Getting breaks and getting warmed up because you can really get hurt if you're out there too long. Yeah, And it is not just Texas. As we said neighboring Oklahoma. They've gone days now without getting above 20 F and even Seattle has gotten about a foot of snow. So how widespread is this system across the country? Yeah, A couple of different storms are rotating through what's a a bigger trough of low pressure across, say, the eastern two thirds of the country but then that Trump also extends into the Pacific Northwest. So that's the storm pattern. Storm's coming into the Pacific Northwest, diving very far south into you know, central or even southern Texas and then turning the corner going through the mid south and eventually into the Northeast corridor. So Everybody along that path is seeing ice or snow. Anyone north of that path is in the extreme cold air. And, yes, there is another storm waiting in the wings. So many of the same areas that we've been talking about are going to get snow again for the middle and end of the week, including North Texas. The Dallas area could see significant snow again. Little Rock could see significant snow Memphis could see significant snow. I mean, these are areas that don't get snow every season. So to be talking about it twice in one week is just one more example of how incredible this weather pattern really is. I mean, is it normal? I guess what you've been describing No, it's not normal, actually. So what's causing it all to happen? Yes, So there's there's a loaded question, right? Because weather will always happen and, you know, long term averages are made up of weather extremes on so it's winter. You're going to see winter weather, but you don't see this kind of winter winter weather every year, and a lot of people are like, Oh, it's so cold. You said climate change and global warming. There is a you know, ironic component to that that as the polls warm at different levels, it messes with the polar vortex. I'm sure people have remember hearing about that from a couple years ago as that slows down that strong corridor of wind around the Arctic that keeps that cold air locked up. It gets all kinds of wiggly and wobbly And that happens all the time. That polar vortex is always there. But this is an impressive wobble if you will. So all that Arctic air spilled into the lower latitudes where the U. S is and that cold air is, you know, we're really feeling the impact right now. Marc Elliot, the weather Channel. Thank you so much for your time.

"Trending. This is from Texas Tribune, which is kind of a lefty site, But it is what it is. It covers. What happens in Austin? Fredericksburg Republican. This is state representative. Kyle Biederman plans to file Bill that would allow Texas to vote on re establishing itself as an independent nation. Jeff Leech representative from Plano, said that's anti American and a waste of time. And he's right. Biederman got on Twitter about a month ago to announce his plan to introduce the Texas independence Referendum Act, the federal government out of control. They don't represent the values of Texans. That's why I'm committing to file legislation that will allow a referendum to give Texas a vote for the state of Texas to reach assert its status as an independent nation. Exit. Is what he called it his ash tag. Late, said this is a joke. Have concerns for our nation, but I still believe in the promise of America. The vast majority of Texans do as well. This is outrageous. It's a waste of time. It's not a serious legislative proposal. It's a joke should be treated as such. Etcetera. And he's right. Jeff lead on this one is right. He's absolutely right in there. I don't know why people always insist. That's it. We're boycotting, or that's it. We're going to secede from the nation. No, we're not. It's not gonna happen. Why do people beat their head against the wall over something like that? We're not gonna be seceding from the nation. You know, many times bills like this have been filed. And I got just the last 30 years alone seems like every session. Some idiot files a bill for Texas to secede from the nation. I'm I think almost every state in the union probably has done this at one time. Texas seems to do it awful lot. Think California was looking to secede and everybody was saying it good. Let's saw it off the Western Seaboard. Let it float out to sea because we don't need him. Make Arizona beachfront property. They already had the sand. That's what people say That's their knee jerk reaction of those kind of things. I could already tell you to industries that would be leaving. Let's say Texas does become Independent nation. I could tell you to businesses that right away. We'll be leaving Southwest Airlines and American Airlines because foreign airlines cannot fly domestic routes. So we're a foreign nation now and so we lose two of our biggest businesses. Not real smart. United Airlines as well down in Houston. That's their hub. May be leaving. So It's a stupid idea. I don't think people really understand the ramifications that it is a waste of time. It is even symbolic. It's just symbolic of people struggle against reality. All it is, but anyway, that will be coming up. You'll hear a lot about it. I'm sure Mr Biederman will be interviewed all over the place and he'll give you that jutted out lower jaw and that quivering lip about Texas etcetera. Just shut up and go away. Out of people like that Get elected office. Did you remember the Republic of Texas people back in the nineties there running around writing checks on Republic of Texas. They're they're putting leans on properties. He's just wacko is running this ridiculous organization. Some clown from Illinois comes in, said I'm really the real president. The Republic of Texas were never became a state legally, and he's running writing checks and Course they finally catch him out of the embassy. And some, I think enough big band. Which was really just a tool shed. Just guy's a moron. We deal with this. It's what you deal with here in Texas. Not a lot of those people. I don't understand it Never have. But don't tell me how patriotic you are. And you want to secede from where your patriotic too. That's what I said about these people who stormed the capital. There's so patriotic that they wanted to overthrow the government. Yeah, that's out works all right, last but not least. Austin is expected to be the nation's hottest housing market in 2021. People are moving to Texas. Lots of people have left California and coming to Texas. In fact, we are the number one destination state for people moving out of their home states, usually because the people running that state are crazy people and have ruined the state. And they're coming to Texas and I guarantee you As all these folks come in, they're going to bring their politics with him. Never once recognizing that the reason they abandoned their home state was because of the crazy nonsense that they themselves have been voting for. It's been said we're going to be a purple state. Sometimes I've been hearing that now for 20 years. That may happen Eventually. It may very well happen. It certainly seems the city centers The main population hubs in the state had become Blue strongholds, even Fort Worth this last time, which was kind of the last big city that Voted Republican. It went Democrat by a few 1000 votes so very well may happen. And you can think And this is the irony of it. You can thank our openness and our freedoms. The fact that that we put business Not in the top position, necessarily, but we're a pro business state. Which means there are jobs. There's a lot of land. You could move. You can go as far out as you want to go. You could live multiple places. You're a lot less regulated here than you are in other states to try to get things done. For example, I lived in California for three years. Try to get states There's something done there. It takes an act of God. It's just ludicrous. And so people just they get fed up and they come here, but they look around they say, Well, I just don't. I don't like I still like the politics here. Was reading a story and Dallas Morning news They were interviewing from California transplants who sold their 1200 Square foot home for a million and a half dollars and came and bought a 5000 square foot a state. And prosper. And they said, Well, we just love it here because the schools are so good, but I just hate the politics. And I think you know how do you get across to people that the reason your school's air good is because of the politics? Reason you could afford that house is because of the politics. Reason you couldn't afford to have does anything like that in California. The reason your school sucked in California is because of the politics..

I guess a lot of the so called experts are trying Teo to read a lot into this record early voter turnout. Here in Texas, and Professor Shaw says, Well, not so fast. Says. For one governor, Greg Abbott, expanded early voting. Here in Texas by six days. And he said the early vote as a share of the overall vote has been growing every election. For years. So I'm quoting here, he says. With that in mind, I don't quite know how to gauge what we're seeing. Against historical precedent because the context has changed. He went on to say, I'm therefore suspicious of people who want to read in all sorts of partisan implications. I said, I'm not sure what we're looking at. In that regard, he added, I think sometimes we get a little too cute. With the data. So what do you make of this? Maybe you're among those early voters like Like I did, and so many others write. You got out there and trying to beat the rush. Before. What's surely one of the big turnout on Tuesday, right? 51283605 90 here on K. LBJ registered Democrats are outpacing registered Republicans. By 14% points. That's, according to The Associated Press. Meantime, though, the polls show that Republicans By large numbers and tend to vote. On Election Day. So what do you make of that? 51283605 90 here on K LBJ. Some additional analysis by the Associated Press says more than one out of or of all ballots, 27%. Or cast either by new or infrequent voters. So it's good news that a lot more people are getting engaged in the voting process. And you say, Well, gee, what's different? This time versus what? We've got to go back to the 19 nineties. We've had this kind of turnout. What's different on the balance this time? Versus years passed. We can easily say that would be President Trump right, good or bad. My before him.

MJ Hegar wants to bring Texas values to the Senate

"MJ Hagar Welcome. Hi. Jonathan. Thanks for having me on. So okay. I I had a set first question, but I'm going to ask my own separate question and that is we started out the clip intro this moment. With your doors add. You ran when you ran the last time to me was one of the most powerful political ads had seen perhaps ever was it important for you to tell your story in that way? You know I think part of why it was. So powerful was the moment that it played in. In that moment people were. Being exposed to the horrors of family separation, for example. And the fact that it resonated so much with people almost. Sad. I want it to be successful, but it was also kind of disheartening to hear so many people reach out to the campaign and say, yes, that was me I had doors closed in my face to I've been trying to advocate for. Disability rights because my child has down syndrome or whatever it was that they were trying to be heard by other elected officials and they completely You know empathize with that that experience of going to DC and having your elected officials closed door in your face and treat you like if you're not a big donor or you don't have any political capital to barter with and you don't matter. And so it was kind of a bittersweet thing. It was great that it got the campaign so much attention but it broke my heart a little that people were. So gut punched over family separation and and so used to their government just not working for them that the message really resonated with people. And so you you lost that. That that ad was made for and now you're running for for US Senate most polls I've seen have you around by points within five points of Senator Cornyn the Cook Political Report classifies your race as likely are which I expected to be solid are given whose Senator Cornyn is from your perspective how is the race looking? Well you know I mean if you I love you know just talking about like the INS and outs of the data although I do think the data shows. That, we have a much better shot than Beto did against Ted Cruz a lot of people think that beddoe crews race that if anybody you know. If we couldn't beat Ted Cruz and we can't beat anybody in Texas. It's actually not true independent voters really like Ted Cruz Ted Cruz had a fifty two percent approval rating when he wants went up against Beto. and. Better almost beaten and John Cornyn has an approval rating of anywhere from twenty eight to thirty two and the vote exactly the same way, and so you have to try to figure out what the differences between the white has one why once a while popular in Texas and one's not And, the reason that that John Cornyn is not so popular is because he there's not an independent bone in his body. He just does he's told he does as he's told by his corporate special interests he does he's told by his party leaders and. You know that's very Texan. It's very Texan to have backbone and grit and integrity and stand up for your principles and so You know I don't really look at polling that much. Even fivethirtyeight recently said that Democrats in Texas are always going out will recently at least maybe not always are outperforming the polling in part because you poll people with a reliable voting history and we've been forty nine hundred fiftieth in voter turnout for decades. So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. So I, have every confidence that. After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. Willing to do more. I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. Want.

Trump criticizes a Texas border wall segment that is said to be eroding, claiming that it was constructed to make him 'look bad'

"Trump is criticizing a privately built border wall project in South Texas. As NPR's Joel Rose reports the stretch of wall near the Rio Grande shows signs of erosion a few months after being built. President Trump took to Twitter to complain that the privately built border wall was quote on Ly done to make me look bad, even though the wall was built after a month's long campaign by the president's supporters. A group calling itself we build. The wall raised more than $25 million after Congress refused to fund trumps demands for a border wall. The three mile section stands much closer to the Rio Grande than the government ordinarily places border barriers. Propublica and the Texas Tribune reported this week that erosion of the river Bank is threatening the wall's integrity. It was built by Fisher Industries, which has since one a border wall contract from the federal government worth more than a $1,000,000,000.

"W. away I. it's that time time time. lock in low. the Democrats. today's show is about. let's start with this crazy idea. wait before we did that. before we start with the crazy idea. that Donald Trump is somehow going to kill off. the whistle blower because you know everyone who disagrees with Donald Trump everyone who brings embarrassment upon him who makes a claim against him. it is up dead. look he's not the Clintons. but this idea. this the worst for blower fears for his life. that's gonna be the subject of our first couple of segments but before we do that. we posted a bonus episode. after the morning show. earlier today. and we played how many ministers that Ted Cruz bit in a go. we played on the bonus podcast which will not air on me on the radio so if you want it you'll have to go here. Ted Cruz talked to Chris Hayes of MSNBC. on now at the festival put on by the Texas Tribune. Texas Tribune is a supposedly nonpartisan but very liberal. can you think tank de what they wanted was the trappings of objectivity so that they can support Democrats and that's what they do it it's all delivered in a very in PR style. is it for a very intellectual here but make no mistake what it is it's donor driven and I guarantee the money that's going into this thing is all coming from the left because. the left is having to figure out new ways to to cloak themselves. we're all in to CNN and MSNBC we're on to the DNC or on the Texas monthly were on Houston Chronicle Dallas morning news sent on express well into that so the minute they say something we immediately dismiss it so. they reform right. remember when of the young o'keefe. exposed. was it planned parenthood a few years ago he went under cover those acorn. acorn was supposedly this organization that was doing really good work helping poor people women who could be against that. well it turns out. there was a lot of money funding. abortion clinics and far left causes in violation of the law members of Congress said no that's not one also o'keeffe went under cover. his hidden cameras and exposed you couldn't deny it he had on camera dead to rights there it is both. so good. he said at the time that keys had done what the Republican members in Congress couldn't do. he had exposed and defeated a corn was getting a lot of money from the federal government from the Democrats there because basically an out reach arm for them. so acorn. withdrew their their documents acorn doesn't exist anymore they were paying the the cost for what they had done. it won a year later that we found out that acorn had just reconstituted itself. same people. same mission same nefarious activities new name. well. that's. what the Texas Tribune has become. it is the reconstitution of liberal organizations into the trappings of a very upstanding just seeking the truth type of organization. so they hold an event in Austin a festival Nancy Nancy Pelosi was the big featured speaker of the week all Nancy Pelosi and they build it as well. Nancy Pelosi Nancy Pelosi will be on our stage just hours before she leaves the impeachment of the Donald Trump you don't want to miss this buy your tickets here okay all right. well real objective. so Chris Hayes and Ted Cruz engage in a conversation. and.

"For the Texas Tribune welcome to the program thank you so much for having me right so unlike some other Texans who were choosing not to run mac Thornberry is actually less of a surprise why is that it was the biggest open secret in Texas politics that he probably hang it up this year he's a long time congressman from northwest Texas and he is the outgoing ranking member of the house Armed Services Committee which means he used to be chairman until Democrats to control the chamber and Republicans have term limits at that position and so he was going to have to give up that position at the end of this term and there was widespread belief that that was gonna be what made him want to retire it's no fun going back to being rank and file after you've been a chairman and ranking member I want to move on to some of the other retirements but one thing about the under is he was elected in this class of nineteen ninety four Republicans that came in a wave with newt Gingrich's contract with America how has the Texas Republican Party changed since then everything you know about nineteen ninety four I wrote a piece recently about and Richard's granddaughter who's in national politics now working for senator Kamel Harris that was when everything changed George W. bush took over the G. O. P. run by him took over the state and so Thornberry came in that year and it's been a huge sweeping change in Texas history to probably twenty fourteen was the pinnacle of GOP power and now we're starting to see things swing back maybe more towards the Democrats there been a lot of retirements as we noted are you ready to call this a Texas first what you does who were some of the other names so there's I a congressman Kenny margin of the Dallas fort were suburbs there's bill floor as of central east. taxes Thornberry Olson of the Houston suburbs my Conway of West Texas and I'm missing one and I should will hurt well I know that we. yeah well heard was when Texas became a thing and so he's a moderate Republican and he retired the summer and it was sort of like a nuclear bomb went off in the GOP conference because he had a tough reelection he is perceived as the only Republican who could hold that see by many people but not all and he was the only African American Republican in the house why do you think this is happening now. I think one in the case of mac Thornberry and a couple others this is generational change these are guys who had chairmanships they've hit their peak of power in Congress and they know it's not gonna be a lot of fun going forward and they're ready to hand it over there's another category of members who were shocked this past year to see how close their margins were for reelection they represent suburban districts in the may have only one by three five points and now Democrats are coming after those seats full throttle the third thing is the under current under all of those which is I think there's a growing realization at least in the minds of these members that Republicans will not get the chamber back and being in the minority is a not very fun existence for members of Congress and so I don't think you can make a sweeping generalization but I think the minority status is the undercurrent should Republicans nationally keep an eye on what's going on in Texas or is it the other way around right that's basically Texas is it's becoming a national race. what I think is happening is in the past there's been this democratic dream of flipping the state bring in the charismatic statewide figure and it's gonna make everything change and better and that has not worked and so what I've seen happening since twenty sixteen in this totally correlates with president trump Democrats been making small gains in the state house legislature any congressional delegation and then at that is party building the wealthiest parts of Texas in Houston and Dallas are never it represented by Democrats that's a well of donors to go to and so I think that there is a long slog toward making Texas competitive it could be faster than I think or it could be slower but I think it's in that direction and it's a bottom up movement that Abby living stand Washington bureau chief for the Texas Tribune thank you so much for your reporting thanks for having me the contract for the acting director of the federal bureau of land management has been extended William Perry Penley gets to keep his job for now his short tenure has been controversial as in Pierce Kirk sickly reports kindly spent much of his career as a vocal critic of the BLM. B. O. M. doesn't make the news that often but in the west it's always at the center of public lands disputes the agency is in charge of managing some two hundred and fifty million acres of federal land deciding who gets to do what on it and where and it's roughly ten percent of the entire United States before being named acting director this past summer William Perry Penley was a property rights attorney with the conservative mountain states legal foundation we're represented ranchers miners and others and Landon access disputes against the federal government in a scathing letter to the interior secretary twelve democratic senators mostly from the west charge that Penley has spent his career undermining federal public lands protections and they know that as recently as twenty sixteen he wrote an article calling for the sale of western public lands retired federal land managers are also calling for Penn these removal well if you have faith and the captain of the Titanic not to hit an iceberg. the new probably it comfortable the family manage public land at Shea is a former director of the BLM who's now a public lands attorney in Salt Lake City he has no sense of history and he has no sense of responsibility to the taxpayers throughout the country been paying for the management of public lands for more than two hundred years for his part acting director Penley says his character is being unfairly maligned here he is testifying before the house natural resources committee earlier this month it has been asserted that I do not believe in federal lands that is not accurate and is a misrepresentation of my works and believes a former marine corps captain who also served in the department of interior during the Reagan administration Penley defended his life's work for me public lands are a fact of life and as a problem loyal member of the trump administration I wholeheartedly support the president and secretary Bernhardt's crystal clear statement that we will not dispose of or transfer in a wholesale manner our public lands the Penley has been presiding over the agency during a particularly tumultuous time as the trump administration is moving its headquarters outside of Washington DC to the small western Colorado city of Grand Junction a four hour drive from the nearest major airport former federal land managers say this is part of a broader strategy to unravel the agency family also recently recused himself from the administration's controversial plan to shrink the grand staircase national monument in Utah because he represented Utah counties against environmentalists in an ongoing court battle sources who work in the field at the BLM who don't want to go on the record for fear of retribution say there's extremely low morale in the agency with the emphasis on resource extraction above all else like wildlife habitat or other conservation programs again patch J. the former BLM director people when they go to camp but appealing campsite and instead find an oil rig there or. large bulldozer for mining operation then they may finally wake up to what's happened in the last eighteen months Henley was not available for an interview but a top interior official defended his work in a letter responding to the Democrats saying Penley is doing an admirable job leading the agency until a permanent director.

"Eight four four three four four data. Bring it back to Texas a little bit in the race for president because I saw this from the university of Texas and an online publication here in Texas that does a good job. I recommend you want to keep up with some Texas news. And knowing how, how big an important this is the presidential race in national politics, period. It's called the Texas Tribune, Texas Tribune UT text tribute. They put together some data on the race for president right now. Yes. I know it's a long time man. But you, you blink an eye. And before you know it sixteen months snap a gun, right? But I was just taking inventory. Just this morning and sick in my head half the year is gone half. Twenty nineteen is almost gone man half the month of June. It's got or almost up to July fourth to the mid mid point of twenty nine thousand nine hundred amazing I was, and I was thinking, hey, did I celebrate? The we celebrate my kid's birthday already. Yeah. That was days ago while it just went. Like a flash. University of Texas, Texas Tribune says right now sixteen months away from the election here in the state of Texas for Donald Trump. It's fifty fifty. Now, if you did you tuned in yesterday, I was visible lathin. Just guffaw at, at the comical, Fox News polling data that was featured on drudge yesterday said that Bernie Sanders was nine points ahead in some Fox News poll that is as laughable. But this one UT and Tribune, fifty fifty well, I don't know much about the sample size but. I'm gonna give this one just a little bit more credit. And I'm sharing this with you again. So that the patriot family. Tune again, one you guys understand and a remind how close we are to, to losing. The momentum and I do believe losing our nation potentially for at least a generation if not forever. If the wrong people get elected, it is amazing. What drives people to the polls popularity personality, maybe and I do believe in large part eroneous information as dispensed by popular media in this nation manipulating business headlines of headlines on unemployment and job creation, making you think it's all bleak and disastrous. Well, actually, we've had we are enjoying right now. The best economy, we've seen in our lifetime period, and I hope it continues to grow because we need more wealth from the private sector because after all so many people depending for us depending on us. When it comes to paying taxes in Texas, UT takes Tribune poll, saying, taxes right now, it's fifty fifty on whether Donald Trump would be reelected, look it up. And you get a chance paying thing or googling Trump's reelection support is fifty fifty and the state of Texas and around here because Robert Francis or work. Yeah. He's kind of popular with the Democrats member him. He doesn't pull very well on the national level when it comes to the dams and their race president. But he's known in Texas after all. He cave our, Ted Cruz quite the scare Ted was out of the gate a bit late and was running really fast and eventually won. It was it was a horse race. Definitely one by knows. But it was too close for comfort. He's he's known around here. So it's Biden, and, or Rourke in the state of Texas right now leading the democrat effort to try to seize Texas from Republicans twenty minutes after the hour..

"From the Texas Tribune this morning, the, the house of representatives in Texas voted Tuesday, to raise the legal smoking age, Mateen to Twenty-one except for military personnel. What it does not say in the story by the Texas Tribune. No, I'm sorry. It does what we don't what we're not generally told. And I guess we're expected to just understand when it says they're going to raise the legal smoking age, what it really means is they're going to raise the age to legally purchase tobacco products. Right. You can give cigarettes to a sixteen year old and there's no law guests that apparently. There isn't no. Like buying buying alcohol for younger people. That's illegal. Yes, it is. And it probably is illegal to do that. I smoke hang as well. But. Really enforce it. Nobody cares affects e cigarette products as well as regular cigarettes, e cigarette manufacturer is, is in support of this law. But I was just gonna say it seems to me that if you want a law to help young, people, stop smoking. Start arresting some young people for smoking start giving them citations or whatever and notifying their parents that they were caught smoking school grounds or wherever, and that might stop it. That might that might slow it down a little bit people starting to smoke when they're in their early to mid teens. I don't know. I just don't have enough law enforcement to. Best gate, and go out looking for, you know, if a cop wanders by and sees a kid, smoking issue, citation and you once that word gets around, it might stop kids from smoking in public. I don't know, might stop some of many. Is it chatty? Uber driver annoying to you. But I think it depends on my mood at the time I have gotten into taxis where chatty driver kind of annoyed me, they on the hand I've gotten into taxis, tried to strike up conversation, and I've had, you know, taxi driver that just doesn't respond very well. You don't feel like having. Take me to this place and you're done. Yeah. Sure. If that's what you wanna do. There's a new quiet mode setting now on the Uber app. My good available. If you hail an Uber black, or an Uber SUV car, not for the regular lower cost Uber service. So when you order your car, you can add, I want the driver to shut up. It's called the quiet mode said, quiet. Most nicer way of saying. Dick euless. Get in the car. Don't feel. I know that my hair done, sometimes sometimes I go, and I feel like I have to talk to the hairdryer don't. Awkward silence Wh-why. When did we stop talking to each other about things, like I don't feel like talking, we talked for a living since sometimes later in the day, I don't wanna talk to anyone won't let me finish this trying to say is. So you go into the hair salon, or you get into the car and the drivers start chatting, and he go, you know, I'm I'm having a bad day. And I just don't feel like talking or whatever if you don't mind. Okay. I think that's rude rude. Well, it depends on how it comes out of your mouth. I guess we all understand that, but you don't have to have it to a point where now you're ordering just hold up a sign. Now you talking about rude carry around a sign that says, don't talk to other features. They've added help with luggage, again, what happened to excuse me. Can I get you to help me with this temperature controls drivers know what your optimum car temperature is? It's a little warm back here. Would you mind? Give me air and extended pickup period, which give passengers extra time to get to the car. We've gotten to a point in this society where we don't have to talk anymore. And we don't want to just talking with my wife about this, when she was upset or a little kind of disappointed because our grandson whose sixteen then really talk to her when she calls him on the phone. He doesn't call us. And I started texting me would that's part of the insects, teen. Oh, no, no, no, no. She now he doesn't has because kids are growing up in an age where they don't have to talk to each other, and they don't, and that's where we're all going with this. I don't want to sound like one of those, you know, old keep off along guys. But what's wrong with just getting in the car and saying, hey, you know what? I'm. Kinda tired. I think I'd like to just sit here quietly, if you don't mind that's not rude, because kids today can't do that. But you can. See how easy that will put me in quiet. Right. Quiet mode. Quarter till eight let's check.
