One would have hoped, if one were exceedingly naive, that Governor Greg Abbott might have backed off after finally realizing how absurd it is to send the Texas State Guard to monitor the U.S. military training exercises known colorfully as Jade Helm 15. One might have thought Abbott would have reconsidered after so many people -- including Republicans like David Dewhurst and Rick Perry -- chided him for doing so.
U.S. Army Special Operations Command Where the revolution is set to begin.
One don't know jack about Abbott, does one?
Abbott, buoyed by the likes of Ted Cruz and noted intellectual Chuck Norris defended his position on Monday.
"We are playing a pivotal role of government and that is to provide information for people who have questions," Abbott told reporters. "It is clear that people in Bastrop had questions, it's clear from the questions I have received in my office that people have questions about it, and as governor and as government, I think we have an obligation to answer questions of citizens. And, by us working with the Special Operations Forces, we are able to provide information to citizens who were concerned about it."
Yes, but what if those questions are idiotic? Not to suggest that the fine, inquisitive folk in Bastrop are necessarily idiots, but it's one possibility that is at least likely as the U.S. military invading Texas, seeing as they're here already.
