Some new "testimony" for the TxLege to consider


After watching many hearings and floor debates, I have something to say.

Look at us. LOOK AT US. Put down your cell phones and iPads, stop talking to your buddies, come back to the panel and LOOK AT US.

You are terrible at your jobs. Sure, you moved through the hearing like a well-oiled machine, but which of you legislators paid attention to us? NONE. As legislators, it is your responsibility to represent your constituents, not your own interests.  In order to do that, you must LISTEN to those you represent. And yet, over the past few weeks, Facebook and text messages and Angry Birds have seemed more important to you.

If I behaved at MY job, the way you have behaved at YOURS, I would have been fired a long time ago. Unfortunately, we can only fire YOU every few years...funny how "right to work" doesn't apply to legislators, isn't it?

You are not a monarchy. We are not here at your pleasure. You work for the people of this state, NOT the other way around.

So show some goddamn respect and LOOK AT US.

  1. Amen! I had no idea... absolutely no idea. I don't think this is what your people think you are doing, representatives!
