It's all about the style points for Beto.

#blueanon clings to the style points and needs to feel like someone is doing something.   A committee, a working group, somebody writing a paper, an emotional outburst that solves nothing.  That's what #blueanon thrives on.   For Beto it was about suburban mom votes, and rallying the base.   If he's elected, he'll go to DC and talk a lot and do nothing.   There's just as many blow hard do nothings on the right as well.   

 



it was a yes/no question

Sure I agree, and that response will have solved about as much as Beto O'Rouke  will solve relative to this issue if he's elected.

i guess i don't understand focusing on the fact that he's grandstanding if you think his point is correct and there are 19 dead children

this guy is also not a fan of grandstanding



I won't stand for this kind of ableist humour.

When that boomer yelled "sit down" I thought that was an insensitive thing to say. That dude was also using a cane and cussing like a rough ridin' idiot.

supposedly that was the mayor of Uvalde

I guess I don't understand why someone actually believes Beto O'Rourke was trying to accomplish anything besides get voters to be elected to an office where it's highly unlikely he will do anything of substance to fix the problem.

i don't usually agree with the gop, but in this case i think they're absolutely correct. the focus shouldn't be on guns. it should be on mental health. And since your ability to receive mental health care and services depends on you having a job then i just think and pray that those folks are in a position to take time off work to tend to their mental health. I think 99% of americans would agree...especially those who might be feeling stressed at work either because they are worried that they might get laid off or they are stretched too thin...there is always time to take time off to get the help you need. Luckily, the unemployed are probably the most mentally stable members of society b/c you don't have to stress over work if you don't have a job! So the folks that don't have access to mental health care are also the ones least likely to need it, so you see it really all kinda works out. let's ignore the grandstanding and stay focused, you guys.

the usa is not an outlier on mental health, it is not an outlier on violence in video games/movies. it is an outlier on guns.

how do you square this with "we should focus on mental health"

Then he would repeal the law about 15 minutes later. Or he could just wait 30 minutes for a Texas judge to shut the law down then see strike upheld in appellate court, the Texas supreme court, and the US supreme court.

I hate Abbott too but I take him and his power seriously. Beto is a loser and cannot be the response to Texas Republicans.
