Let’s go along with this claim for the sake of argument.
“State of Mental Health in America” by Mental Health America, a nonprofit that advocates for people with mental illness recently ranked access to mental health care across America. The study indicates how much access to care exists within a state. The metrics considered (1) access to insurance, (2) access to treatment, (2) quality and cost of insurance, (3) access to special education, (4) mental health workforce availability, and (5) state funding.
Fact: In the group’s 2022 report, Texas ranked 51st out of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Not 50th. 51st!
TEXAS RANKS DEAD LAST!
Republicans, who are completely in control of the Texas State Legislature and squired by a doddering Republican Governor, have repeatedly SLASHED health care funding.
There you go. There’s the problem. It’s right there.
You can run, you can lie, you can take dirty NRA money, but these conservative good ole’ boy scumbags can’t hide.
Here’s my rant. This is MY press conference. Rampant profanity throughout.
This is a complete takedown of RATFUCKING REPUBLICANS who completely shit on the First Amendment right to free speech. I’ve had it and if you’re not angry as well, then you’re not paying fucking attention.
This “press conference” looks like a casting call for Wagon Train.

This ruling will effectively nullify a woman’s right to control her own body. It means a woman loses the right to make her own medical decisions. It’s a devastating blow to personal privacy and restricts her ability to determine her own future. It enables any state to make abortion a CRIMINAL ACT punishable by fines and imprisonment. It outlaws abortion in as many as 25 to 30 states based on the current political landscape, including as much as 70 percent of the geographical landmass of the United States of America.
This is potentially the most egregious legal ruling in our lifetimes.
Accordingly, I have several thoughts on this outrageous high-court ruling:
