I am getting ready to go to downtown Austin Tx.
A lot of Texas Dems are headed there today from all over the state. There are several buses coming from Dallas. We are supporting the Texas Senators that left the state to stop the redistricting. Tom Delay is trying to get more repuke votes for Congress. This will mean more votes that take from us and give to rich people. No redistricting is our message. I am going to take pictures and see if I know how to post them on DU. Go Texas Dems !

I can't wait. I feel really good about doing this. I bet a lot of people show up. I know we will be on the news. These Texas Democratic Senators are helping the children of Texas. I support them 100 percent. Go Dems !

13. "give 'em hell"?
I'm afraid THAT ship has sailed.

Reports indicate a wave of weather even more brutally hot than usual in the state of Tejas.

Perhaps the Creator is firing a warning shot across the bows...

11. Thank you!
Not my state, can't really do much to help. But the consequences do impact all of us non Texans. Thank you for taking local action on your - and on all of our - behalf! :hi:

I've been hearing about this--also saw a recent plea by the Exterminator himself for plenty of wingnut counter demonstrators. But I don't imagine there will be very many compared to what you guys are doing. You guys were organized!

The right wingers are trying the redistricting power grab in my own state and some others. And they're trying to overturn the gubertorial election in California.

What you are doing is important!

Please let us know how it turns out.
