Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.
– Albert Einstein
Texas has a sorry history of passing and never repealing doltish criminal laws. For example, in 2003 the Supreme Court declared the Texas sodomy laws unconstitutional. The ban on homosexual sex is still on the books for the lack of a brave or even principled politician.
Outdated mediocrity like sodomy prohibition, marijuana prohibition, bans on dildos, and 11 seperate felonies related to oysters are an embarrassment to our state. I hope this next legislative session finds a few great spirits in Austin opposed to historical thoughtlessness.
What can you do to help? Change.org (not to be confused with Obama’s Change.gov) is gathering ideas (mostly far far far left ideas). Repealing marijuana prohibition is the number one most popular and dare I say best idea on the site. Now click my widget and support the repeal of marijuana prohibition.
