I am currently reading “The Red Queen” by Philippa Gregory. Set in 1485 during the Henry VI reign in England, women were subjected to all kinds of physical and financial persecution during this era. This wasn’t unusual for this time in history and I am thankful I did not live during this era. Recent legislature passed in the Texas legislature caused me to wonder if we are easing dangerously close to mimicking this type of mentality.
The sonogram bill that recently passed and Gov Bubba has promised to sign is a red flag that women should be vigilant. Dynamic objection from elected women legislators has been absent in this session of the Texas Legislature. Where are all of our strong Texas women? The era of feminine activist surely can’t be over or, are we so stricken by the sheer audacity of good old boys in the Texas Legislature that we are numb with horror.
Governor Perry plods on, side stepping his arrogance and proudly announces he has sent letters to corporations in California to relocate to Texas for our great business climate.
I wonder if most of the gray matter taking up real estate between his ears is required to maintain his hair. Can he possibly be so naive as to believe women everywhere are not aware of the mentality of Texas elected officials? Bet his letters didn’t mention there has not been a modicum of government action to insure Texas has an educated workforce to support business.
I think Texas women should unite to make sure Governor Good Hair and the boys have the opportunity to consider alternative career paths come election time.
