San Antonio Thought Police Win the Battle
"But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive."
"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."
"I made my bed, I'll lie in it; I made my bed I'll die in it...."

They did it; the San Antonio City Council voted to approve Julian Castro's censorship ordinance.
Municipal government in San Antonio will now enforce restrictions on personal beliefs; with the bonus of forcing businesses to allow men in women's restrooms.
The question becomes: how will people react?!?
It's an open question. We'd love to get all 'rah, rah' on our soapbox and talk about how this will not stand. But we don't know.
There's certainly recourse. The San Antonio city charter provides for recalls. But a successful recall drive will take a lot of work.
As a resident of Austin, this isn't our fight. San Antonio residents must take the lead. A successful recall campaign will only be won neighbor-to-neighbor.
If you live in San Antonio, and you don't agree with what just happened, you better get off your ass on this one....
