Fiscal conservative, social moderate. In TX03. I follow politics obsessively-growth only comes from understanding the other side. Funny is better than snarky.

Hey Ronny, aka Dr Death. Your district has the 14th highest per capita death rate for Covid out of all 435 congressional districts. Because of you and your misinformation.
Republicans want to protect innocent life in the womb, and Democrats celebrate ending it. I will ALWAYS defend life!

I couldn't figure out where the comma(s) in "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" should go, so I hit myself in the face.

This month my Congressional Youth Advisory Council interviewed local veterans & wrote what they learned from their experience. It was inspiring to see our next generation of leaders express gratitude through sharing the amazing stories of those who answered the call to serve.

The overwhelming majority of anti-vaxxers are foolish and deluded. They'd be doing far less damage if it weren't for the cynical propagandists who profit financially from them, and the savvy and sophisticated enablers who think they profit politically from being allied with them.

Dropping my extremely hard of hearing, 86 yo father at DFW airport for flight home. Customer Service was helpful. Security line was only 2 minutes long. Good job @AmericanAir @DFWAirport Always remember that the elderly may not be able to hear your instructions.

Just to be clear, if you celebrate Christmas - keep celebrating it! No one is suggesting your celebrations, faith, or traditions are being ‘cancelled’. However, we live in a world where people have many traditions they cherish. Inclusion means recognizing theirs, too ❤️

Brexit stemmed from a lot of delusions, but one of the underrated ones was a sincere belief that the UK was somehow doing the EU a favor by being inside it.
Brexit seems like the ownest own goal of the past decade

“Thanksgiving was rejected by the South as crypto-abolitionism. Southerners saw it as part of a ‘war on Christmas’…The Richmond Daily Dispatch in 1853 hoped the latter holiday would ‘never be thrown into the shade by any festival of modern invention.’” newrepublic.com/article/1645…

Old internet maxim: Don’t feed the trolls. Argumentative people don’t want a discussion: they want a fight. They want to get under your skin. Don’t engage. “You’re nuts, but Ok. Pass the potatoes.” Defuse, disarm, laugh it off.

Gentle reminder that there’s no “war on Christmas”, just people who celebrate various holidays who (rightfully) deem them just as worthy as the ones you celebrate.

58 years later, no event has changed the trajectory of U.S. history more than the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. November 22, 1963 remains a dividing line between a confident post-war America and a nation constantly struggling to find its bearings.

Today’s verdict speaks for itself. I've spent a majority of my career working to make our criminal justice system more equitable. It’s clear, there’s still a lot more work to do.

The same people who argued that 17 year-old Trayvon Martin should not have been out at night wearing a hoodie are the same people arguing that 17 year-old Kyle Rittenhouse should have been out across state lines with an illegally possessed AR-style rifle.

#SARCOIDOSIS is an inflammatory disease that affects the LUNGS, EYES, JOINTS, ORGAN & NERVOUS SYSTEM. This disease is increasing among African-Americans. My brother died 5 years ago today, so this is a matter very close to my heart, please share. RIL James "Big Boy" Taylor

Honored to posthumously present the Prisoner of War Medal to the Gibbs family at today's Flags of Honor Ceremony in Plano in honor of their father, First Lieutenant William Jennings Bryan Duncan, who survived the Bataan Death March. We’ll always remember his bravery & sacrifice.
