I was not aware that I "threw out a jab at a favorite whipping boy of the left". Wow, you read a lot into my post that I didn't say. And I am the one being butthurt? Please. I am sorry your clear penchant for assumptions is so strong. It must be exhausting to be so sensitive. The OP used a spaceship analogy about sealing off bad sections and the discussion is about events in Texas, so I was trying to see if that is really what they were calling for because I think that is ridiculous. No political implications involved nor insults meant toward Texas, but feel free to keep reaching and accusing others of being the butthurt ones.
