California Gives New Life to Texas GOP's Oldest, Lamest, Argument


"But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head."
Psalm 3:3

OAKLAND, Calif. — Uber and Lyft say that unless a state appeals court decides to intervene Thursday, they will shut down their passenger services across California for at least several months if not more than a year.
Apparently, in the time between when we first saw this story and when we sat down to write this blog post, Uber/Lyft got a reprieve from the courts in California.  So they stay.  For now.

But that doesn't change the point we had orignally intended to make.  Cuz uber and ridesharing was the one time the Texas Legislature actually did something useful.  And, apparently it mattered.

It's not a secret that this website used to bash California a lot.   We've gotten out of the habit the longer we've observed Texas government up close.  But it's not like the argument didn't have merit.

Crazy times.

Bottom Line: Whatever else you want to say about Texas under the GOP, they did address the Uber issue.
