Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Totalitarian leaders of all stripes have always had reasons to censor free speech. In truth there are no reasons other than to stifle dissent.

Last week a group of Texas state legislators decided to cast down their nets and follow their consciences. They left their native land on a kind of pilgrimage to find democracy. By leaving, ironically, they ended democracy in their own state. In their absence, Texas could no longer pass laws. But they believed it was worth it. They were serving a cause bigger than themselves.  So they set out on the journey of a lifetime with just the clothes on their backs. They took nothing, apart from a private jet, iPhones for selfies and regular social media updates, as well as a case of Miller Lite for sustenance. They forewent even their paper obedience masks, the ones that federal law requires the rest of us to wear when we travel by air. But not these pilgrims—they took no masks. They traveled light. They like the Viet Cong, marching 50 miles in truck tire sandals and sleeping in trees. They were only about their mission. Finally, after a grueling refueling stop at an FBO en route, they arrived in Washington as conquering heroes.  One of them, an enthusiastic if not especially bright legislator called Gene Wu, boasted that fans were all but throwing themselves at him as he arrived at National Airport. Virtue has its benefits.
