Hah, this is obviously not Trump and Pence but it's so funny

Your Texas Lege at work- Love What Strauss said

Meanwhile, Straus said, “We are starting to send the wrong signal about who we are as a state.”

Referring to legislation to regulate the use of public bathrooms by transgender individuals that Patrick made the central crusade of the regular session, Straus said that what he considers to be a wholly unnecessary controversy can only send a negative message nationally.

“Too often, we knowingly walk right into controversies that repel jobs and opportunity,” Straus said.

“We seem determined to repeat the mistakes other states have made,” he said, referring to North Carolina’s experience in enacting similar legislation.

“I want Texas to be known as a state that makes decisions that attract people, jobs and opportunities,” Straus said. “And that begins in our public schools: The public schools that breathe life into every community in Texas, from cities to suburbs to small towns.”

Majority of terrorists who have attacked America are not Muslim, new study finds

The results: “right-wing extremists were behind nearly twice as many incidents” as terror acts associated with those identified as “Islamist domestic terrorism”.

The report identified 63 incidents involving those “motivated by a theocratic political ideology espoused by such groups as the Islamic State”. In that time period, this includes the San Bernardino shootings and Boston Marathon bombings, among others.

Right-wing extremists, often white supremacists, were responsible for 115 incidents within the same period. Events like Robert Dear’s killing of three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood women's health clinic in December 2015 for offering abortion services would fall into this category.

In terms of police action, 76 per cent of the Islamist incidents were thwarted versus just 35 per cent of the right-wing extremist incidents.

Sting operations were used in nearly half of the Islamist-related incidents, a rate four times higher than police operations on right and left-wing extremist acts.
