Over the course of just a few months, it appears. The link is to the site where I found a video shot by a local resident of Austin, TX. (I’d forgotten to put the link to the site when I first posted).
Now, many of you may think of Texas cities as much more civilized than other states. And, generally, that may be somewhat true.
But, Austin has long been an outlier – a VERY Leftist blue city in a sea of red.
But, if you are a resident of the Lone Star State, keep in mind that – while most of the state is a staunch supporter of the Right, the cities have come to adopt the Phat-headed Philosophies of the Left.
Probably one of the most important things that state and federal government can do is apply the motto of Pottery Barn:
If you broke it, you bought it!
If there are no consequences for chuckleheaded decisions, people will keep making them.
For alcoholics, they have to have life hit them – HARD – before they will admit there is a problem.
For debtors, having no other options than bankruptcy is the best trigger for that Come-to-Jesus moment, when they will FINALLY realize that, no, they cannot keep up their financially feckless ways.
For Austin, and all of those other Red Hellholes, refusing to once again bail them out of the troubles they have made for themselves is the only way that they can learn from their mistakes.
