Re: Texas Judge Releases Nearly All Defendants After Losing Re-Election

Not sure that you got my point. We are not at all in disagreement about the judge. However if you think anyone on the blue side of the aisle in Houston/Harris county is going to complain you are mistaken. I got your point, but I disagree with your last statement about "the blue side". Maybe I have ...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Not to go off on some off-topic comments but wasn't the increased medicaid spending a sliding scale that after so many years Texas would pick up the majority, not the federal government, and that would break Texas financially? The old carrot and stick and those that took the carrot will receive the...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

We are mired in the muck we are in with creeping Collectivism, exploding Debt, and partisan politics because the tendency you note for men to be corrupted produced career-politicians instead of citizen legislators as our Founding Fathers wanted. The career politicians, the Political or Ruling Class...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

That's great but both of your positions are significantly different than infoman's. I'm curious about what dem positions makes him want to vote dem when one of their primary positions is contrary to the 2nd Amendment and what this forum is about. Instead they come up with divisive "non-issues" to p...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

A well stated position Steve, and one I'm closely aligned with. I vote for the individual candidate, not the party. There are plenty of idiots and imbeciles to go around in every political party and I try my best to vote against them regardless of their party affiliation. :tiphat:

Re: Texas gets away with highway robbery

Oh I agree about the registration tax as well. I also hate they make us pay for inspections. I understand why the inspections are there and to a degree it makes sense. But you just have to follow the dollar and the real reasons usually show up. The State is constantly looking for ways to raise more...

Re: Why people don't trust the media

Also saw another video from a reporter in South Carolina making his report as he stood in water mid-thigh deep that looked like it was that way as far as the camera was showing. No theatrics on his part but talking about the widespread devastation the homeowners were experiencing. Right at the end o...

Re: Why people don't trust the media

There was also one I saw a few months ago, and I think it was in Dallas. It showed a group of police and other first responders doing a fast water rescue of a women in a car stranded in high water on an access road, trying to maneuver a rescue boat up next to the car door so they could pull her out ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

This is getting comical. The innocent guy gets shot in his own apartment and they search his apartment lookingnfor contraband? To smear the name of a Dead man unbelievable. They really are trying to throw this under the rug per say. What does him having marijuana in his OWN apartment have to do wit...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Being tired from working a 14hr shift is no excuse. How many thousands of people work 14hr shifts everyday and don’t go to the wrong apartment and shoot somebody in their OWN apartment. Just wow. Not an excuse, and jury still out on what exactly happened here, but fatigue is not a trivial factor ei...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

We empower LEO's with the ability to arrest and imprison our fellow citizens. This responsibility should come with a higher standard of acceptable behavior than we have for the citizenry as a whole. We don't yet know all the facts here. But I do know that this officer should be held to at least the...

Fine or Theft??

A few days ago, Cameron County officials announced they had reached a plea deal with a man that Sheriff's deputies arrested for DWI when he was found passed out in his car on a FM road on 3/26/18. He was charged with Class B misdemeanor DWI and taken to jail. The deputies then discovered $830,000.00...
