You may have heard in the news that a bunch of Texas representatives have left the state rather than vote on a “voting rights” bill.
James Talarico is one of them. He is also my state representative. Which means I get to vote for him. Or, in this case, against.
As my state representative, it is his job to represent me. Not run away like a coward because the legislature might vote for a bill he doesn’t like.
At this point, he should lose his job. If I didn’t show up for my job, I’d be fired, and he should be as well, as well as all of the other hornswagglin’, side-windin’, bushwhacking cracker-croakers who are ruining our bischen cutter.
Get back here. Mr. Talarico. Face the music and do the job you were hired to do. You represent me. I, as well as the rest of the voters in my district, am your boss. And you done messed up.
