Re: Morman Bloodbath in Mexico

...We just can’t kill them on our side of the border without suspending the Constitution....and that’s a road none of us should want to travel down, because the NEXT president might use that excuse to terminate anyone they don’t like on our side of the border—including anyone of us. :iagree: I have...

Re: Special Election Today

Put me down with the same tally as the OP. AND, a big fat no on a $10million (10,000,000) bond to give to the high school. I'm afraid I will be in the minority on that one and my property taxes will go up some more. :banghead: $10m? That is small potatoes! On my ballot were nearly half a billion in...

Re: TX: Mom kills her 3 children, self

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/a-waste-texas-gun-control-activist-shoots-her-three-children-dead-in-murder-suicide MSM sources seem to not report that she was a Gun control activist.

Re: Rep Elijah Cummings dead

Re: Austin City Limits Festival

I too would love to know what charge they would arrest you for. This is taking place in Zilker park, which last time I checked was owned by the taxpayers. It is not a prohibited location by statute so 30.06/7 should not apply.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

The sound bite I'm hearing has the jury foreman saying "No outbursts" after the verdict was read. Since when does the jury foreman control the courtroom? This is outrageous. I read that it was a bailiff who made that statement. That makes a heck of alot more sense. https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/...

Re: CPR Bill?

Meh. If passed, it would have given every nurse, MD, EMT, Paramed, Fireman and many LE a 1/2 free DL, in addition to everyone who went for their card, "just because." CPR cards are good for 2 years, so SoT is losing fees on all certified people for 1/2 of the period between DL renewals, which is a ...

Re: Sheila Jackson Lee: House members will have to flood the Senate floor

I don't know that anyone has been prosecuted for lying under oath when giving testimony before a Legislative Committee.

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

I guess go ahead and not vote, back plumb out of the process. Yep, Texas will turn blue and you think you have problems now? Get some folks in the primaries, vote out Dan Patrick, but stay in the game. Or, don't complain, when we become Valenzuela light. I know it won't happen right off, first we b...

I'm watching an interview with the Fort Worth mayor on Fox4 DFW this morning. She just said a UBC would help identify who's got them (guns).
Hmmm... sounds an awful lot like a registry to me.
