Illegal Immigration and the Monster in the Closet

by Peter Stern

Many people complain about how illegals are being treated, especially now that Arizona has developed new state laws that enable enforcement of immigration laws.  Texas is the largest state that is implementing a fingerprint recognition system to verify whether a person is illegal.  The program approved is to check the fingerprints of all prisoners when incarcerated to check for any illegals who are criminals. I imagine that rather than have taxpayers provide the money to house illegals in our jails they will be deported.  Many cry-out "foul" to that system and believe it to infringe on the rights of illegals.

The Frustration Inherent in Elections

Does what we have to say count for anything?

by Peter Stern

Elections are just frustrating as heck!

Who do you vote for? Who is the best new candidate? Which incumbent has done the least for the community? Then after all that and more, the winner is NOT the one you voted for.

Texas Public Education --- again!

Governor Rick Perry Continues the Humiliation and Failure of Public Education

Funding is Available, but the Political Games Take Precedence and Always Have

by Peter Stern

There is state and federal financing available for public education, but Governor Rick Perry and Texas legislators divert the state dollars to other special interests and they refuse to accept millions from Washington as a campaign technique to gather votes by fighting Democrats in D.C. and here in Texas. Perry says that Washington will never take over control of Texas public education. This is nothing more than placebo politicking. Washington does NOT want to control public education in Texas.

Perry's Bogus Promises

Texans Need a REAL Governor

by Peter Stern

After 10 years in office, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has done little to help hard-working Texans. In fact, he has done a lot to hurt them.

Now That We Destroyed Iraq, Let's Leave It

But Let's Continue to Throw Millions More of Our Tax Dollars Into Rebuilding It

by Peter Stern

After all, we did the same thing with Germany and Japan after World War II via our destruction of those nations with our bombings. After we dropped the A-Bomb on Hiroshima, destroyed the city and caused deaths and radiation mutilation to millions of Japanese, we then (almost guilt-ridden) soaked our tax dollars into rebuilding Japan, a task that lasted for decades. It took decades also to rebuild Hamburg and other German cities with American tax dollars. History repeats itself, as does the ongoing "war machine."

Texas Governor Rick Perry is a Scoundrel, Liar and Coward

This November will Texans Finally Get Smart?

by Peter Stern

While many politicos may see NOT debating as a clever ruse and good move politically, those who opt not to debate are nothing more than COWARDS and un-American. They are going against American tradition of the Lincoln/Douglas debates and honor. If you are meant to win, you should win based on your merit. These days there are few GOOD politicians in the mix. Texans would do well to revamp the system and get rid of lackluster special interest incumbents. Will it happen? Probably not. This sort of politics has been a mainstay in Texas.

Texas Governor Rick Perry Needs to Pack It Up and Move-on Down that Long Lonesome Toll Road

big campaign bucks show Perry's true allegiances are NOT with the people

by Peter Stern

It is NOT the People of Texas who want Perry reelected. Perry won the last election with only 39 percent of the total votes.

The millions in Gov. Rick Perry's reelection campaign "trust fund" were contributed by a handful of select investors. It is the same small crowd that has provided Perry consistently with support and funds for years. The millions must speak volumes to Texas voters!

Texas Governor has TOO MUCH power

Time to revamp the office and responsibilities

by Peter Stern

Yes, Texas gubernatorial candidate Bill White is correct. Limit the terms of the Governor. If you can't do the job in 2 terms you shouldn't remain Governor.

Texas Governor Rick Perry and his Insurance "Axis of Evil"

Approximately four years ago lax insurance legislation coupled with Gov. Rick Perry, then TDI Commissioner Jose Montemayor and elected officials looking the other way, the insurance industry overnight doubled home insurance premiums to over-compensate for previous years of a soft market.
