WHO WILL GET TO VOTE BY MAIL BECAUSE OF COVID 19!

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton gave this statement following today’s bench ruling by the Travis County District Court to expand mail-in ballot voting in Travis County for upcoming Texas elections:

“I am disappointed that the district court ignored the plain text of the Texas Election Code to allow perfectly healthy voters to take advantage of special protections made available to Texans with actual illness or disabilities. This unlawful expansion of mail-in voting will only serve to undermine the security and integrity of our elections and to facilitate fraud. Mail ballots based on disability are specifically reserved for those who are legitimately ill and cannot vote in-person without needing assistance or jeopardizing their health. Fear of contracting COVID-19 does not amount to a sickness or physical condition as required by state law. My office will continue to defend Texas’s election laws to ensure that our elections are fair and our democratic process is lawfully maintained.”

Where have all the bikes gone?

Boredom takes a toll on the human spirit and some will find a way to break that monotony.

Empty adult bike section at Academy Sports and Outdoors in The Woodlands, TX

A quick visit to your local Walmart, Target, and Academy will deliver proof people are finding ways to get around the cabin fever of being locked in doors.

If you go into the bike section of these stores in the Woodlands all of the adult bikes have been snatched up.

There are only a hand full of kids’ bikes left. A worker at the Academy says he’s waiting on a new shipment because obviously customers are as well.

I think right now there are probably more bikes on the roads and trails of America than any other modern time.

I got my ride, what about you?
