The dumbing down of Texas continues as lawmakers passed an amendment that defunds HIV/STD prevention programs and diverts $3 million over the next biennium to abstinence-only sexual education programs. House Democrats fought against the amendment to the House budget proposal which was presented by Rep. Stuart Spitzer (R-Kaufman). “Is it not significant that Texas has theā€¦

      And I’d bet that the majority of those teen births have no health insurance, so they end up on the public dole, and cost taxpayers many thousands each in unpaid hospital bills, even more than a normal delivery, because they tend not to get the pre-natal care.

    Spitzer is a doctor and a repuke? Typical GOP doctor like Ben Carson and few other GOP doctors… you won’t believe they’re doctors when you hear them talk stupid.

    Texas funds itself with sales taxes and welfare from the feds. No income tax. It balances it’s budget by spending as little as possible on public services.

    sure hope it happens. Imagine the population decline in texas!!!!! No one knows who might have the heinous disease so no one will fk anymore – delirious aholes all!!!

    • Larry Schmitt April 1st, 2015 at 12:42 pm

      It will take more than that to get people to stop having sex.

    • rg9rts April 1st, 2015 at 2:35 pm

      That might become the orifice of choice in Texas

  7. Bunya April 1st, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    They should make a law mandating all republicans and conservatives be spayed or neutered in an effort to cut down on the rampant idiocy in that state. Those mental defectives already infecting the population (like Louie Gohmert and Rick Perry) should be immediately lobotomized.

    • rg9rts April 1st, 2015 at 2:34 pm

      Cruz too please Cruz

      • Bunya April 1st, 2015 at 4:00 pm

        I forgot Cruz is from Texas – or is he from Canada?
        I demand to see his long form birth certificate!

        • rg9rts April 1st, 2015 at 4:31 pm

          Texas is what he claims now

          • Bunya April 1st, 2015 at 4:54 pm

            That’s what he CLAIMS, but how do we know he’s not lying? We won’t, until he produces his long form birth certificate, in which case we’ll declare it a forgery.

    April fools?? Right?? Wait a minute this is Texas….so is the legislature going to abstain too???

  9. Angelo_Frank April 1st, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Rep. Stuart Spitzer (R-Kaufman) is not atypical of a large percentage of Texans who believe that abstinence education is the key to preventing teen pregnancy and STD/HIV. They insist that those that indulge in sexual activity prior to marriage are being punished by God if they become pregnant or infected with disease. I wouldn’t be surprised if next on their legislative agenda will be the the reintroduction of chastity belts, mandatory for single young women in school.

    Spitzer is definitely in the running for the ” dumbass of the day ” award.
