When I first read about Gov Greg Abbott putting razor wire on the border, I was appalled. What is up with Republicans wanting to kill or maim people? It's like the Party of Death. As the saying goes "No hate like christian love"

I had the enormous pleasure of being with my family, enjoying the companionship, conversation and laughs, as well as partaking of a delicious meal my daughter made. It was such a pleasant time.
I noticed when I got back that the MAGA people also had their hero posting a thanksgiving message. It was like looking at a funhouse mirror, not a message lifting up Americans, celebrating our unity, but a petty diatrib
Yes, I realize Poor Poor Old Trump, who clearly is an awful man with growing dementia, is probably not a fit person to even be talking about. Certainly he's not a role model for anyone who cares about ethics, democracy and how to raise decent children, but here we are. This old conman keeps preying on suckers to pay his attorney bills, like a malevolent P T Barnum. It doesn't appear to these people Trump treats as chumps that Trump whining about so many cases against him might just be because he
Last week, Somervell County Commissioners Court went into executive session and then came out and the majority voted to fire Dwayne Johnson. Commissioner Richard Talavera made the motion, Jeff Harris seconded. When it came time to vote Danny Chambers voted with those two and Tammy Ray and Wade Busch voted against.
No secret that I have had reservations about Dwayne Johnson for a long time, including when he was Precinct 2 commissioner. I was surprised that after he lost his commis
Somervell County has had at least three instances, that I know of, where an employee working for a public governmental entity, either embezzled money from the entity or worked with money while convicted of a felony. One, back in 2015, was Melanie Reese, former City Secretary of Glen Rose who plea bargained theft of government funds. A second was Janice Nickell who embezzled from Glen Rose Medical Center in 2013. And then there was Liz Morgan, who embezzled church money and spent at least part o

Here's what I find ironic. These Texas Republicans are all about preventing children from learning about the diverse world as it is, and yet are trying to stuff 10 commandments posters into every classroom.
If this jackass really feels this way, then why is he trying to put the Lege in the place of decision makers instead of parents with regard to the 10 commandments? Worse than a hypocrite. What is he, a christian nationalist instead of a normal person?
would not survive to birth. She was advised that continuing her pregnancy put her at a higher risk
of developing preeclampsia, placental abruption, and deadly blood clots. Yet, she was denied an
abortion because the hospital said it was unsure whether her conditions satisfied Ohio’s abortion-
ban exceptions. She and her husband immediately scheduled an abortion at a hospital in Michigan.
But, soon after, a Michigan appeals court allowed the state’s 1931 abortion ban
Why, it was only a couple of weeks ago that some Republicans were telling women to just move on and forget about that they were doing re: abortion bans. Yeah, forget that some states were STILL passing laws to limit abortion to 6 weeks, make women have multiple appointments over several days before they cold even get on, maybe forced to have a sonogram, or having to leave the state if, god forbid, they have to get an abortion for any reason AFTER 6 weeks. (At which point, incidentally, a lot of
Don't know if everyone is following how utterly corrupt and bribe-able Clarence Thomas is, but the most amazing part is that Harlan Crow put Thomas on the gravy train and Thomas not only took all the spiffs, but didn't fill out his ethics reports about all the gifts. That tells me Thomas knew is was shameful but liked those free trips too much plus it was too much work to recuse himself from any court cases involving Crows pet projects. (Harlan Crow doesn[t want anyone to know how much bribes gi
Everyone has read the horror stories of women who are being affected by the draconian and cruel law passed by Texas to prevent women from getting abortions past a certain date (not to mention how awful it was to take away someone's rights to their own health care and treat them like non-citizens who need to be guided by ignorant politicians rather than qualified doctors. What happens if a women needs emergency care because the fetus dies or otherwise has an issue? The law in Texas
Makes ya wonder how many christian nationalists are actually in office that don't give a hoot about either the US constitution or the Texas constitution. Anyway, this is absurd and waiting for a lawsuit to happen, not to mention how bigoted this idea is. What is it? That Texas public schools can decide, rather than hire a qualified guidance counselor, to hire a chaplain instead.
Because where every public school being paid for tax dollars wants is some pushy religious types using an offic
An interesting part of the video with this article regarding the process of getting a pardon
So, what in the world is the Office of the US Pardon Attorney for if people can just go around it, probably have no investigation but instead possibly under the table pardons given out to those with lots of money. Feels like everything was a grift under the table with the Trump administration. Anyone, I believe, should be able to go to the OPA and ask to see the papers for
Anyone who disagrees with this inclusive process needs to read the case the Supreme Court ruled on, Town of Greece vs Calloway
I don't know anything about this group but absolutely agree that once you open the door to prayer in what should be a secular govt meeting, you cannot discriminate against anyone, it cannot ONLY be christian prayers.

If I wanted to watch an hour of sexual assaulter Trump lying, I'd tune in to his little lie fests he has with his followers who are happy to send this supposed rich guy money. And I don't.
