“Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is being blamed by GOP opponents and Democrats for bungling the deployment of thousands of National Guard troops to the border under his signature program Operation Lone Star after a recent spate of suicides among the troops,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“The deployment was hasty, Guardsmen say. Some stationed on the border say they have little to do, which is leading to low morale. As well, the state has been slow to pay them, Guardsmen say.”

from the comments:

- What? Being a political prop is not good for morale? Who knew!

- What you have here in Texas is a bunch of National Guardsmen who were forced by the governor to quit their normal jobs during a pandemic and economic crisis in order to be props for a political stunt. They are now losing cars, homes jobs, etc. with no real idea when this will all end

- The GOP sees owing the libs as the only play they have. They do not govern. They do not believe in science or merit. Everything is a joke, Kabuki Theater or performance art. Their media echo system brainwashes millions.
