Obviously, this is all the public stuff and doesn't mean much about private back room meetings.
They play a dangerous game. I can't speak for anyone else, but absent a legislative miracle, they have guaranteed I will not vote for any Republican incumbent, for any office, in 2014.

If people think that unreasonable, I will take it as a compliment in the spirit of George Bernard Shaw's unreasonable man.
Whether it is reasonable or not is subjective and irrelevant (to me). Such views will have predictable outcomes in elections, which is what Mr. Rothstein was talking about.

Re: Letter to Governor Rick Perry

Here's to hoping:
Governor Perry, the newswires are reporting that no other issues will be added to the special session. This is extremely concerning and upsetting as I had hoped you would add gun rights legislation, e.g., comprehensive campus carry, general reductions in restrictions on Texas CHLs, and prevention of 30.06 notification abuse by government agencies.

These legislative efforts have broad support in both legislative chambers, but have been thwarted by either Senate rules or House leadership. Your leadership is therefore necessary. Please add these gun rights measures to the special session call.

Re: Letter to Governor Rick Perry

OK, so other topics (e.g., transportation) are being added to the special session call. That's good for another fax to the Governor about gun rights.

Still the case on Thursday at 6:30 a.m.

Dear j.r.,

Your fax to Hon. Rick Perry at 5124631849 has failed because the receiver's phone was busy 5 times in a row.

Thank you,
