I hope he runs and wins. He's definitely better than what they have now.

Despite his stupidity in running for President, he still has a huge following in Texas and a massive organization still in place across the state.

He also stayed during the power failures, reaching out to seniors while some other people *cough* fled to Cancun. Right there, that says a lot.

He would be a great governor. Sadly his gun positions likely take him out of a statewide win, but you  never know. 

Well, there are plenty of women who are angry in TX, thanks to the GOP. Don't count them out.

As quiet as it's kept, there are doctors who are defying the Texas abortion law and they are not at all keeping it a secret.

Which really shows how dim some of these people are. No matter what laws are put in place by a shadow docket, they're not going to stop abortions from happening. I am personally anti-abortion except for cases like rape and incest, but I know that it's not a one size fits all issue. The provision of deputizing people as bounty hunters is outrageous and dangerous, and the fact that the GOP is so hypocritical when it comes to COVID-19 is why especially in TX they should be voted out.

This shouldn't be allowed to happen. Why not select a pool of candidates from elsewhere, apart from the huge accounting and law firms?

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Angry? Yes.

    • Don't do it. They take your money, keep you hanging for weeks and then block you.  I learnt the hard way when I had to try and reclaim a lot of money back.  I reported them over and over but FB won't take the page down. 
    • I really like that cast photo: Kay holding tight onto Brock like he is her lover whereas Jill and Phillip Sr oose so much swinging seventies...
    • These assessments heavily rely on when you STARTED watching (or stopped LOL) because of the sheer length of B&B's timeline by now: Due to Caroline's death, the whole relationship has the perfect romance status - forever. Even though the last time we have seen Caroline was her ghostly visit in January 2021. Ridge had to FIGHT for Caroline and he had the chance to GRIEVE for Caroline. (Something that has rarely happened since because pacing nowadays is soooo different!). For me Taylor was always Ridge's second perfect love. Now that I've seen 1990-1992 it is a little harder to fall this assumption because I had no idea hoq quick the shift  of commitment happened in 1992. However, from 1993-2002 there was zero possibility for that Ridge actually loved Brooke. She was a caniving h* who always used her children for her own benefit and desperate need to cling onto Ridge.  Ever since the show shifted to Nick/Brooke/Ridge and Bill/Brooke/Ridge we have entered a whole new aera in the traingel business which made Brooke much more liekable for me, but the perfect romance never involved Ridge.  
    • I am watching early 1991 right now and to me it is obvious that Ridge is attracted to Taylor but more emotionally involved with Brooke, although he has given up on her because she's marrying his dad (kind of like he tried to give up Caroline after she married Thorne and dated Brooke instead). Another thing that is obvious is how Brooke is clearly more in love with Ridge than with Eric, and that that marriage was doomed before it began (Brooke dreaming about marrying Ridge on her wedding day to Eric).  I agree that after Thorne, Grant was Macy's best pairing. He was very good with her and cared very deeply about her happiness. I think Macy as a character was very sensitive to OOC writing and it showed in the storylines the months before both her deaths. Because she was usually so decent and sweet, she didn't have a lot of leeway, so anytime she broke that pattern it made you go "whoa..." and it didn't always ring true. Usually it was her interactions with Brooke that pulled her out of character because Macy was shown to truly hate Brooke and it wasn't really in her nature to be hateful, bitter or vindictive (she usually ended up on friendly or at least civil terms with all her rivals - even becoming best friends with Karen). Also, she was more aggressive with Brooke than I'd say was believable for Macy (it was more in character for Macy to turn that destructiveness inward). But it went both ways - Brooke also showed her absolute worst side in her interactions with Macy to the point where it was almost OOC (I never really knew Brooke to be quite as gleefully sadistic with anyone else as she was with Macy - like when she sent her a drink, or when she casually suggested that Macy's mother was dead just to see Macy's reaction). 
    • That has definitely been around for a while. Don't think it is photoshopped. I have seen it in 70's mags, just much smaller and B&W  Also there is a different shot of Jeanne, Brenda and Donnelly from this same shoot. All in same clothes but just the three of them and grouped differently. Here it is from a 70's mag but can't remember which one.      Please register in order to view this content Now I look, the B&W one is slightly different. Bill Espy has crossed arms and Brenda is looking more straight on to the camera.  Oh the one with Brenda, Jeanne and Donnelly is definitely a composite from the above cast shot. Just realised that, haha
