I want you to meet Diane Tran. She’s 17 years old and lives with one of her employers in Montgomery, Texas, a cabal of Republicanism where they even want a proper drape on Michelangelo’s David because his wee-wee shows. Seriously.
Dianne is an honors student taking dual credit U.S. History, dual credit English Literacy, College Algebra, Spanish Language AP. She also works part time and full time jobs at a dry cleaners and a wedding venue. Her parents divorced and disappeared. She lives with her employer’s family. The money she earns goes to an older brother at Texas A&M and a younger sister living with relatives in Houston.
She spent the night in jail.
What heinous crime did she commit? She missed too much school. She often stays up until 7:00 am doing homework and falls asleep in class. This community of Super DeLux Brand Christians were apparently so distracted that a statue of David had an actual weenus showing that they did not notice a 17 year old honors student supporting her entire family while making the honor roll.
So, they put her lazy butt in jail.
The Honorable Republican Judge Lanny Moriarty wanted to make an example of Diane.
“If you let one run loose, what are you gonna’ do with the rest of ‘em?,” said Judge Lanny Moriarty. “Let them go too? A little stay in the jail for one night is not a death sentence.”
Lanny, Dude, she is not running loose. Lanny, Dude, this baby girl needs help, not punishment. Open your damn Republican wallet with a sledgehammer, Lanny, and give this child a couple bucks. Hold one of those golf tournaments you Republicans love and let this baby girl sleep in the locker room while you Christian boys drink some beer and slap each others hineys.
The wise Judge Moriarty also gave Diane a $100 fine. Lanny, Dude, that’s not helping the situation.
Republicans just don’t get it. They really don’t.
He made her an example, okay. He did. He made her an example of the cruelty and meanness the Republican Party brings to the American arena.
You can contact the good Republican Judge on Tuesday being your usual kind selves and ask if you can send a couple of bucks to him to help pay Diane’s fine. But you want some kind of proof that it went toward her fine and not his wallet with the chain and double lock around it.
Lanny better pray he can take his money with him and that Sweet Jesus takes bribes because that’s the only way he’s gonna get to heaven.
