Hell, Dumbos/Morons! Why Bother With Bringing Back The Poll-Tax? If You Want To Guarantee White Supremacy, Repeal The 13th Amendment!!

Texas Attorney General Hot Wheels is fighting to prevent the Forces of Evil from undoing his beloved Texas Voter-ID Law. This blogger arrived in Texas in 1967 (He wasn't born here, but got here as fast as he could.) and the Poll Tax (1902-1966) had been repealed in Texas the year before. Now, the Dumbos/Morons are attempting to deny the vote to non-Anglo Texas voters with the Voter-ID Law. If this is a (fair & balanced) reassertion of white privilege, so be it.

We’ll stop them for the documents they lack,
And then we’ll try to get the poll tax back. Ω
