Re: HB 1050 - Ad Valorem Tax Reform

Another barrier to something like this getting passed is the idea of totally restructuring the entire Texas education funding system. Not too many people ready to dive into that abyss. That being said, property taxes are probably the ultimate example of unfairness. People who don't own property, or ...

Re: Legislation Scheduling?

...birthdays, useless resolutions, noting that the 22nd dog choir from outside cool Texas is visiting today, bringing in and recognizing donors, etc. etc. Make sure to remember all this when someone says "we just ran out of time." :sad: I was just flabbergasted last session, watching that...

Is there any way to listen to a Podcast, for us non-Pod people?

Re: Bipolar II misdiagnosis

HIPAA allows you to get a copy of your medical records at any time. Just call that doctor's office and request it, simple as that. You can probably pick it up in a few minutes.

How does a campus the size of a small city "post 30.06"????

You can possess it, but can't sell it. You can share or loan it to family or friends, but can't sell it.

Re: A heads up on Kalifornia

Something I've wondered about this new California ammunition law. What if CA resident goes to Nevada and buys a pallet of ammo? Do you have to have an ammo card to "possess" ammo? What about everybody that got it before? Do they have to turn it in? Seems like a 9 mile wide "loophole&...

Re: A heads up on Kalifornia

The ramifications are incalculable if this is allowed to stand. You said it. I shudder to think of the consequences of a Katrina or Ferguson type episode in CA a couple of years from now. There are numerous towns in CA already that are so gang-infested you can't even run down to the corner store fo...

Re: A heads up on Kalifornia

Not everyone there wants the laws. California is largely controlled by the population dense counties whose votes totally over power the more numerous, but smaller, red counties. Pretty much the same as Texas, with heavy liberal voter numbers in the big cities dominating the elections. Regardless, a...

A heads up on Kalifornia

I've been reading about California's new gun laws just signed by Jerry Brown, and some of the discussions on calguns.net. It's hard to swallow what's happening to the shooting community out there. The new laws are suffocating. Assault weapons are banned, "assault weapon" defined as any rif...
