Re: Rep Elijah Cummings dead

Trey Gowdy posted the following on facebook; Elijah Cummings was one of the most powerful, beautiful & compelling voices in American politics. The power and the beauty came from his authenticity, his conviction, the sincerity with which he held his beliefs. We rarely agreed on political matters. We...

Re: Austin City Limits Festival

I too would love to know what charge they would arrest you for. This is taking place in Zilker park, which last time I checked was owned by the taxpayers. It is not a prohibited location by statute so 30.06/7 should not apply.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

The sound bite I'm hearing has the jury foreman saying "No outbursts" after the verdict was read. Since when does the jury foreman control the courtroom? This is outrageous. I read that it was a bailiff who made that statement. That makes a heck of alot more sense. https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/...

I'm predicting - Guilty, Manslaughter.

Re: CPR Bill?

Meh. If passed, it would have given every nurse, MD, EMT, Paramed, Fireman and many LE a 1/2 free DL, in addition to everyone who went for their card, "just because." CPR cards are good for 2 years, so SoT is losing fees on all certified people for 1/2 of the period between DL renewals, which is a ...

Re: Sheila Jackson Lee: House members will have to flood the Senate floor

I don't know that anyone has been prosecuted for lying under oath when giving testimony before a Legislative Committee.

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

I guess go ahead and not vote, back plumb out of the process. Yep, Texas will turn blue and you think you have problems now? Get some folks in the primaries, vote out Dan Patrick, but stay in the game. Or, don't complain, when we become Valenzuela light. I know it won't happen right off, first we b...

I'm watching an interview with the Fort Worth mayor on Fox4 DFW this morning. She just said a UBC would help identify who's got them (guns).
Hmmm... sounds an awful lot like a registry to me.

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Currently, 80% of all gun sales include a background check. Of the 20% that don't go through a background check, we believe about half are transfers between family members. Federal officials estimate that the remaining 10% of guns sold are involved in more than 80% of gun crimes. It is just common ...
