Not recognizing Biden as president is like me still sitting in the stadium yelling at an empty field about a call I didn't like from 2 years ago.

Some more interesting stuff:

In TX Republican Platform: "Sexual Education: We demand the State Legislature pass a law prohibiting the teaching of sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity in any public school in any grade whatsoever, or disseminating or permitting the dissemination by any party of any material regarding the same."

"Legislators shall prohibit reproductive healthcare services, including counseling, referrals, and distribution of condoms and contraception through public schools."

So if parents won't do it, kids will have to learn about sex from each other. It worked for me. From other kids is how I found out what the word fuck means.

Great news for Oklahoma casinos, such as those just across the Red River: "Gambling: We oppose any expansion of gambling, including legalized casino gambling. We oppose and call for a veto of any budget that relies on expansion of legalized gambling as a method of finance."

They want Obergefell v. Hodges overturned.

"Marijuana Remains Illegal: Oppose the legalization of recreational marijuana and offer opportunities for drug treatment before penalties for its illegal possession, use, or distribution." More great news for Oklahoma, if it can get rec marijuana legalized.

A couple of very good points were made:

"Civil Asset Forfeiture: We call upon the Texas Legislature to abolish civil asset forfeiture, independently or in partnership with federal authorities, and to ensure that private property only be forfeited upon a criminal conviction.

Government Surveillance: We oppose all forms of warrantless government surveillance of United States citizens and businesses."

Still beyond the pale that folks are concerned about states taking action to try to overturn gay marriage by getting a case before the SCOTUS with a test law?

There's also mention of removing homosexuals "special rights".

This is a thinly veiled gesture toward removing their rights in general. What special rights do they have?

The Texas legislature does something futile and stupid. Could they do something futile and stupid in the future with respect to gay marriage? Of course. Could it survive a judicial review on equal protection and due process grounds? I don't see how.
