Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Feds against Texas - Let's all Hope Texas Wins

HB 1937 passed unanimously in the Texas House and was fixing to go to the Senate when US attorney general John Murphy threatened to use the TSA to stop flights in and out of Texas:

“If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute,” Murphy wrote. “Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.”
“We urge that you consider the ramifications of this bill before casting your vote,” Murphy added.
Pure unadulterated thuggery. This bill would have made the TSA groping a felony and put a stop to stripping Americans of their dignity. Apparently, that's what our Federal Government wants. Don't tell me its to keep me safe. If the Feds gave a flying frak about keeping us safe, they would bring our troops home and reposition them along our border, where thousands of people have actually been slain. Plus, every domestic terrorist case since 9/11 has had the FBI so heavily involved in setting it up, it's hard to say that these cases were part of a larger "Muslim" conspiracy. I know what the Koran says, but I've read some scarier writings: the minutes of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Georgia Guidestones, the findings of the Reece Committee, etc. The people that run our federal government at the top adhere to this godless religion that worships social darwinism and "might makes right".

Representive David Simpson is the bill's sponsor and said on the floor of the Texas house:
"Gentlemen, we find ourselves at such a watershed moment today. The federal government is attempting to deprive the citizens of Texas of their constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 9, of the Texas Constitution. If we do not stand up for our citizens in the face of this deprivation of their personal rights and dignity, who will?”
 Either Texas backs off and continues to let government employees fondle innocent women, children and men as a condition of travel,” the staff wrote, “or the TSA [Transportation Safety Administration] has the authority to cancel flights or series of flights.”

“… 97 percent of people who go though the nation’s airports do not go through these offensive searches. And yet, a United States Attorney warns that flights to Texas could be shut down because TSA would not be able to ensure the safety of passengers and crew if agents could not touch genitals. Someone must make a stand against the atrocities of our government agents …”
The Federal Government is citing the supremacy clause as their justification for this and will use that clause to justify pretty much everything else they want to do to you. They are Supreme -don't you mundanes get that? The Corps is mother the Corps is father. 

Send Rep. Simpson an encouraging word here.

Encourage similar bills to pass in your state. Let's call their bluff and see the planes stop flying.

Update: Senate caves in to federal pressure. It was going to be a unanimous vote until the AG sent that menacing letter. 21 votes were needed and 10 were still there. I want the names of the 11 cowardly bootlicking goosesteppers that have just screwed us all over. That is all for now, good night!
