Re: Post Mortem

I'm wondering if there will be a post mortem following this disastrous session of the Tx Leg. Normally we have, you know bills to follow and public hearings to discuss. This year, even the crickets where silent. We got exactly one bill through. Although it was an important bill for folks who live i...

Re: Can someone find this law?

When I was in the academy in 2014 we were shown a the text to a law in response to the NFL’s policy banning off-duty LEOs from carrying at Texas Stadium. The Texas legislator stepped in and basically wrote a law that specifically said that Texas LEOs are never off-duty and can carry virtually anywh...

Re: Can someone find this law?

It may have been drafted in 2014 for the 2015 Legislature, but I could not find any bills doing so for that legislative session. The Texas Legislature Online has a neat function that lets you see exactly how a given statute was worded on a specific date in the past, and Section 2.1305 doesn't even ...

Re: Rashida Tlaib allegiance

The occupation myth again, :banghead: Unfortunately that is nonsensical and false. The entire argument rests upon the false premise that Israel is "occupying" Palestinian land and that Israel has no legitimate claims to the lands in question. At the risk of :deadhorse: : Has there ever been a legit...

Re: Rashida Tlaib allegiance

Hmm, I wonder if Justin Amash, the other representative from Michigan with Palestinian parents (well Palestinian-born father and Syrian-born mother) ever feels Palestinian in Congress. I doubt it strongly.

Re: Female gun ownership and the rise of fashionable "carrywear"

IMO, the purse market is still highly lacking, and a lot of it is sexist to boot. I won't even look at most of the products, which are toward the frilly or rhinestone-y end of the spectrum. And/or the construction quality just isn't there. And/or the prices are ridiculous for what is offered. And/o...

Re: ATF says bump-stocks have never been used in a crime...

I have to disagree and here’s why. We can all agree that the ATF/left has wanted to ban bumpstocks since the Las Vegas shooting. We can all agree that IF the ATF were to be biased in one direction (hint:they are) they would use any resource available to find records of crime committed with bumpstoc...

Re: When does a school zone end?

I knew I had read the code somewhere on this and I found it. Can you tell me what code section you found it at? When I saw the post, I went looking through the Transportation Code and could not find the section on school zones. I did not do an extensive search though and I thought the answer might ...

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

I'm pretty sure if the population votes we won't be changing the clocks anymore. Just end it! There are two tricks to this, as I understand it. The first trick is to amend the Constitution to allow the public to vote on a statewide referendum like this. The second trick with this bill is that we ar...

Re: Trump is the last Republican President

I think that the vast majority in our country are middle of the road and want to keep the country that way. If you examine our history, we always swing back and forth between liberal and conservative. Looking at our recent history, the swings seem to be getting more extreme, but we are still averagi...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Concerning Trump’s taxes and the family taxes is there a law where they have to turn over their taxes or was it just a precedence? If that is the case how in the world can you subpoena to see anyone’s taxes? It has recently been customary for candidates to make their returns public, though I have n...

mojo84 is again both focused and correct. In recent weeks, the conversation around Islamic anti-Semitism has involved Rep. Ilhan Omar. Like the various imams and terrorists, the newly elected politician reveals the diversity of Islamic anti-Semitism. What unites Muslim anti-Semites in America isn’t...

Re: New CHL Holder + Vehicle carry questions

I think this is interesting and I disagree with the DPS on what a belt is, I guess. The Code Construction Act says that if a term is not defined in the law, then it has the same meaning as the common usage of the term. I think most people would say that the term belt means something going around the...
