Gov. Rick Perry's appointments finally have Texans on their knees...

Texans are hurting...

It is often stated that the weakest political position in Texas is that of the Governor. However, the weak role the Governor plays over the legislative process is more than made up by the appointed positions he makes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even at this time of economy hardship and vast unemployment, let's look at the good things and acknowledge the people we love and care about.

There is much to be thankful for even in the midst of dark clouds and I hope that all of your turkeys are happy and silly ones and that you enjoy this special day with family and friends.

So, Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Yes, according to an article in Fox News, there is a plan that let's the IRS do people's taxes so that folks won't have to do their own income taxes.  "Crazy" you say?  Maybe crazy like a fox.

Health Care Premiums Still Soaring With No End in Sight...

"We don' need no stinkin' insurance!"
I just got a notification from my health care provider that it will raise my premium another $37 per month. The company just raised the premiums 3 months ago $10 per month. That means if I am to keep the insurance, it will now cost me $210 per month.

What can you say about Rick Perry?

What can you say about Rick Perry?

I'm sorry, but I'll say it... Perry is a down-home boy who is out of his element at the national level.

As a person, he has no polish and little substance. He has made it to Governor of Texas via his drive and luck. He gets relected because there has been no one in the Texas political field worth any merit, so people vote for the Devil they know, rather than for a Bill White, 'Kinky' Friedman, 'Grandma' Strayhorn, 'Pastrami' Katz, --- do I need to continue with this lackluster list?

Austin American-Statesman ABSURDLY tells voters to approve ALL 10 Proposed Constitutional Amendments

The Statesman Editorial Staff shows how out-of-touch it is with its approval of ALL the Propositions on the Texas November ballot and which highlights that the newspaper obviously does NOT work in the best interests of the community.

How is it possible that the Statesman determined to tell voters that the bond issues for Travis County are good for the people? Property values have increased in most of Travis County year after year and consequently property taxes continue to escalate to where they are now already unaffordable. Any bond issue will again increase property taxes. There are several bond issues proposed in several of the propositions.
