[FONT=&quot]Two billboards warning people headed to Austin, Texas, that they’re entering at their own risk and there will be “limited support for the next 20 miles” were posted Wednesday by the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA).[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]The billboards are a reaction to Austin City Council’s unanimous vote in August to “defund” their police agency by budgeting about one-third of the money that usually goes to the Austin Police Department and steer that money toward other priorities, according to Austin City Council member Gregorio Casar.

This should be outside every Democratic Party run city. Tell people the truth for a change.

If the Democratic Party captures the presidency and Congress, followed by the Supreme Court, that notice should be put at every airport and border crossing into the USA.

I agree with you that no one with a police department and married to or related to any police officer has business having anything to do with the Democratic Party and should vote straight Republican for every office in every election. Everyone who wants to eliminate the police and for the USA to be a lawless land of jungle law and right-makes-right should vote Democratic.

See, we can agree on some things.

So the Austin Police get defunded, and they choose to spend their limited resources on political billboards?

Really shows where their priorities are.

The good news is your fellow citizens have decided to buy firearms to defend themselves from your crazy brethren.

Agreed.
This is not a scene from "The Russians Are Coming!" anymore, and it's not scene from Sugarland Express either, it's a bunch of pussified yokels all wound up after listening to Fox News and Donald Trump trying to terrify them, and now they all "got their shootin' irons ready" and sooner or later some group of goth kids or a couple of normies are going to get shot because these dumbasses were sure they were "huntin them some antifa".

Enough with this nonsense.

Most of the need mobility scooters just to get from here to there. They better hope there’s never a hot civil war.

If Trump issued an EO for you idiot Democrats to turn in all your guns, you would obey it, and that would be the end of the "hot" civil war.

Yes, if DONALD TRUMP told Democrats and only Democrats to turn in guns, we would absolutely do that.

Yes. You are good at wargaming.

:roll: The Austin police didn't pay for the billboard. Is the billboard have too many words for you to be able to read them all?

If there is a hot civil war, the last thing I am using is a firearm. Dont knock the scooter. They're fun.

WHy not? NYC is becoming a shooting gallery, yet the ****wit mayor is spending resources to create a BLM mural on 5th avenue.

they did not get defunded... that was bull****

This defunding nonsense is all made up by the GOP after some asshole radical protester came up with this idiot idea and small parts of the left heard started mooing it.

Look up the definition to the word "Defund".
Look at the word the Police Haters were using after George Floyd.

Tell that to the 2 officers just shot in the head in an ambush and the hundreds of blacks murdered in just Chicago. But, then, that's a good thing, right?

Why do you think posting such a lie is persuasive? The Austin DEMOCRAT council cut $150,000,000.00 from the police department budget. How many police salaries is $150 million? How many police is that eliminated at $60,000 a year?

It 100% has to do with the Democratic Party since it is only Democratic Party officials cutting police budgets by as much as over half a billion dollars per year.

That is hardly "defunded."

Cuts are made in municipal budgets all teh time... thousands of districts a year. Now we have the morons yell, defunded for political gain. That is all that is different.

We will be cutting everything here. EVERYTHING. Why Covid response ate up all the local monies.

Should I be a partisan jerk and yell the teachers were defunded? As if it's a big Democratic plot?

Plus, dopes need to lean the meaning of words. A budget cut and defunded are not the same thing.

Defund means to "prevent from continuing to receive funds" which is not the same as cutting a budget.

Good God, the posts from teh lunatics are absolutely awful. Lies and distortion. Always alternate facts.
