Anyone care to pay attention?  No?

Then **** you all.

A prominent member of the Texas State Legislature turned himself in Thursday after an arrest warrant was issued accusing him of dropping an envelope containing small plastic bags of cocaine at an Austin airport in September.

The record appears to show that he dropped the envelope on the ground; airport workers found a white powder inside, called the cops, and it was cocaine.  They got a DNA sample and, I presume, matched it to DNA on the envelope.


Oh by the way, he could get 10 years for that.

Now contrast this.

Hunter Biden, a few days before the 2016 election, turns in a car at a rental lot in Prescott, Arizona in the "after hours" (after the office had closed.)  He didn't put the keys in the dropbox as you ordinarily do; he left them in the gas cap compartment.  In the vehicle he left his identification, credit cards (belonging to him), a cellphone, and a Secret Service business card, among other items.

Oh yeah, he also left a used crack pipe and a ziplock bag with a white powdery substance in it on the passenger seat.

Fingerprints were not found on the pipe (glass pipes are easy to wipe off) but the police determined it had indeed been used to smoke crack cocaine from the residue.  There is no word as to whether the pipe or the baggie were tested for DNA.

The police refused to prosecute.

Equal justice under the law?


If in the future I see a cop, prosecutor or anyone else associated with "just-us" on fire and I happen to have a cup of water with that I could use to put it out........ I'm gonna drink it instead.

I think its time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that our founding fathers intended for us. Ronald Reagan 1964

The picking and choosing of who and when to prosecute is a form of tyranny. While I don't agree at all with the war on drugs, as it's counter to the freedom our country was founded upon, you have to hand it to Texas for enforcing the laws on the books on this one. If this happens in the majority of other States, the Legislator is never charged and then owes someone a career-extending favor at the taxpayer's expense.
