Voters in a number of Harris County political jurisdictions will vote early today using the new voting gizmos that are a bit different from the ones we have been using. I am curious to know how voters will react.

I sure hope Baytown voters don’t use the Harrisvotes.com pdf map on where to vote.  They have the Lee College early voting location in Clear Lake. It is not.

It looks like the Chauvin trial will go into the jury deliberation phase today.  If we don’t get a guilty verdict, America will deserve whatever happens. 

This is hilarious. From CNN:

(CNN)Former President George W. Bush on Sunday called on Congress to tone down the “harsh rhetoric” on immigration, adding that he hopes that doing so will “set a tone that is more respectful” of immigrants and lead to more reform.

“I do want to say to Congress, please put aside all of the harsh rhetoric about immigration, please put aside trying to score political points on either side. I hope I can help set a tone that is more respectful about the immigrant, which may lead to reform of the system,” Bush told Norah O’Donnell on “CBS Sunday Morning.”

And this:

Bush also said he is currently lobbying the Republican Party to act on creating a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, if they can pass a background check and pay back taxes but did not seem hopeful that his party will agree.

“I am right now,” he told O’Donnell when she asked if he would lobby his party if President Joe Biden put forward a proposal with those caveats. “Whether my own party listens to me or not is another question.”

This is hilarious.  The guy dropped out of politics 12 years ago.  He has not been engaged with his Party.  He has taken an attitude of disdain toward politics. The GOP in Congress today isn’t the GOP from 2007.  The GOP in 2021 isn’t going to listen to the likes of him.  Maybe if he had stayed engaged, his GOP wouldn’t have fallen into an abyss. Save it.
