and not have to answer questions, even to a policeman about whether they are coming from or going. IT IS ONLY THE WOMAN's BUSINESS.
Why does this even come up, and with all the FREEDOM, FREEDOM (including people who say they have freedom not to infect other people through Covid), every single United States citizen should be shouting that women are free to travel. But some Republicans do not think so.
Republicans block bill to protect women who travel to other states for abortions.
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"

ACLU re: Texas HB4 which died in the Texas Lege on Nov 7 2023
When Texas, with SB8,, passed before SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade, decided to make it so that citizens of the state could snoop on women having abortions and sue the providers in civil court, all while Texas government pretends to have nothing to do with it except codify that odious behaviour into law, I wondered what SCOTUS would do about it. After all, people who just want money through a lawsuit don't even necessarily have *standing* against the person getting an abortion, they're just greedy

No, not the one, Jane Doe v Donald J Trump and Jeffrey Epstein from 2016 (US District Court Southern District of New York) PDF
Trump was originally supposed to go testify in the E Jean Carroll civil case, but decided to go fly away to Scotland instead of going to court. Guess he figures he's going to lose anyway so why not go golfing. What's hilarious is that he was asked by an Irish reporter why he went golfing instead of attending his own rape case, including "But does it not show disre
Agenda for 4th October 2021
Did they screw it up and not follow the law when they approved the budget AND the HIGHER tax rate on 9/23/2021? Here was the signed motion made after Judge Chambers and the commissioners voted on it.
Apparently so. Brian Watts, former auditor for Somervell County, sent Somervell County Judge Danny Chambers an email on September 27, 2021 that basically accuses Danny Chambers and Dwayne Johnson, Somervell County Commissioner for Precinct 2, of hubris and v
Got to thinking about this the other day because Dwayne Johnson, who is in a runoff for Precinct 2 County Commissioner, came by the house bragging about how the golf course and other businesses are essentially self-paying without using any county money. The idea is that all profits and expenses come, not from line items in the general Somervell County budget, but from the Enterprise fund. In the past, the golf club did not make enough money to run without additional moneys from the general budge
If it is based on someone's particular religious beliefs, guess what. The United States is not based on a particular religion being a state religion that everyone must agree with and follow. That includes christianity.
If a particular religion believes that women must be submissive to men, that does not mean all women everywhere have to respect that belief and follow it.
What is absolutely reprehensible is that most Republicans in these states that are banning abortion consider the fe
From time to time, Somervell County Salon has published a list of the salaries of both Somervell County and Glen Rose Medical Center. Both, of course, are public entities so we get to know what our tax money is going for and to what jobs. The following information is from an open records request to Somervell County. Please keep in mind as you read that these numbers might not represent the full compensation for a given person. I have in process another open records request for the full amounts,

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
Pretty clear to me after watching the video that anyone who cosigns the beliefs below does not believe in the concept of the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, since they want their branch of christian sect to take over the world. Gives some new meaning to evangelism, with added pressure to build more churches and pressure everybody to join.

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. Who knows what CNN was thinking except they clearly want to bring in a larger audience comprised of the dregs of humanity.
At the Feb 14, 2022 Somervell County Commissioners Court had item 12: County Judge: Commissioner, Precinct 4: Discuss/Take Action on First Look Vista Ridge Ranch Subdivision. Appears that Brazos Partners LLC sold land to Vista Ridge Ranch, LLC, specifically 282.026 acres of land on the southeast corner of FM 199 and Hwy 67.

Although these are unofficial documents, I am a little amused at how sloppy the filing is, hopefull
Read this bill and tell me if this isn't one of the stupidest bills the Texas Lege has come up with yet. Maybe it's written for ignorant Texans that don't know nothing stops any kid from reading the Bible or praying as long as they aren't disrupting class and paying attention during instructional time. They can pray before school, at lunch, etc. Nobody stops 'em. They can even bring a Bible into school, just like any kid can bring in a so-called Banned Book to read. If it makes a child feel bet
SO HOT here now, under a heat advisory through Friday evening, and it will be over 100 degrees every day for at least a week. And that only brings us to the middle of July. Time to bring up one of my favorite things about living in this county and that is the Somervell County Transfer Station where I can get a free truckload of mulch. I have done this twice already this summer (really should have started in March) and it has done wonders for the trees and bushes in the yard. Whereas before I wou
It's funny. I never cared about who was or wasn't transgender my whole life. Really, until wacko Republicans decided to make it a part of their culture war, most people probably didn't care either. Mz Zephyr was elected, was silenced by Republicans when she wanted to speak out about their bigoted view of transgender laws. You can read the particulars at the lawsuit link below.
Have to ask, why the fool does it take a lawsuit to fight against the bigotry of Republicans?
Anyway, here is

Remember when Hobby Lobby went to court because they didn't want to pay for birth control for their employees?

Decent people with ethics do not require that 10 year old girls must carry babies to term when impregnated by a rapist (or any other age of women for that matter). Anyone that does feel that way, ie, that rapists have more rights than a girl or woman, has something seriously wrong with them, and should be shunned, even if they pretend they are somehow righteous people.
Have read in the past week or so about the 10 year old girl in Ohio who was raped by a man, and, because Ohio now has made
Update: the bill that would have required Texas public schools to display the 10 Commandments in every classroom has failed. Good. Shows that Republicans are not serious people but just want to rile up ignorant people who don't understand separation of church and state
1. Not everyone is a christian. The bill to put the 10 commandments in every school, in every classroom, is nonsense.DMN
2. Not everyone wants their children to be indoctrinated by fairy tales
3. What they want to
Everyone who lives in Somervell County knows that the heat this summer has been extraordinary. There have been excessive heat warnings for a lot of days that tell people to stay inside. I concur but there are still things that have to be done outside if, as I do, you have agriculture or have to feed cattle, etc. I have a section of the yard where I have been attempting for the last year to create a privacy buffer between me and the neighbor. One way I decided to do it is by planting Texas Sage n
I've watched every single one of the January 6 hearings, in which a bunch of people stormed the Capitol of the United States, showed contempt for police (um, what ever happened to the Blue Lives Matter mantra?), injured people, put out a noose to hang Vice President Mike Pence, and then ran roughshod through the Capitol, including smearing poop inside the building, stealing things and looking like they were not only trying to obstruct a constitutional event but were going to injure or kill congr
Texas Freedom Network
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?
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
