Re: Property taxes

The real evil is the agricultural exemption. I pay more property tax on my little plot in a suburban neighborhood than many pay for their hundreds of acres that produce little/nothing. But those folks who own vast tracts of land have bought enough legislative influence that the ag exemption will ne...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

Interesting, a friend of mine shared this post apparently from a 74 year old woman that was one of 5 people out there this weekend. Apparently, according to those that were there they didn't even go to Bonnen's house, which, if you read Bonnen's rant it is consistent since I am sure he would have s...

Re: TX: Police cadets in Texas City injured by accidental discharge

Glad he was weeded out before he hit the streets. We do not need people enforcing the laws who do not think the laws apply to them.

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

You have a vote and money. Tell a politician that you're a member of his or her party and that you're going to start voting and or donating to the other side as a result of a specific action. I gave Cruz money vs. BETO and now his people contact me so often that I worry that his wife ought to know ...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

It's wrong when crowds of idiots surround Cruz or McConnell at dinner and it's wrong when one idiot shows up at a Bonnen's door. Those activities are personal and outside of acceptable political discourse and should be mocked and punished as necessary. Bonnen's lies are immaterial to McNutt's fooli...

Re: Don't need to show LTC to LEO when carrying.

If fail to do so you'll likely be arrested and charged with Obstruction. You "can" beat the charge, but you probably won't beat the ride. If they truly suspect you of committing a crime but lack real probable cause/RAS they will look or provoke you until they find one. I don't like bowing to tyrant...

Re: Property taxes

The term exemption throws a lot of people off because it sounds like they don't have to pay ANY taxes. They do pay tax on it but at a greatly reduced rate. The exemption reduces the taxable "assessed" value of the land from the appraisal office valuation to 6.5% of the "appraised value". For exampl...

Re: HB 121 - Requires oral notice for 30.06 and 30.07

Here's to hoping it dies in the Texas Senate. Why would you hope that a bill that provides a defense to prosecution if you are told to leave (TPC 30.06 and 30.07) and you promptly depart dies in the Senate? This isn't a sweeping bill, but closes a loophole DAs could use to prosecute you (Class C mi...

Re: Experience dealing with LEOs during events etc?

the only time ID can be demanded (i.e. you MUST properly identify yourself) is if you are arrested, detained, The statute does not include "detained" as a time when LEO can demand ID. https://www.lawserver.com/law/state/texas/tx-codes/texas_penal_code_38-02 Read a little further down.
