One more thought; Another factor that suppresses energy plants being constructed is the rise in efficiency coupled that with the little bit of Green alternatives, produces less demand. Not to fear, for utility companies, as the loss in revenue can be redeemed at their local state energy subsides. More you save on initial electric bill the more you pay to subsidize that savings. Republicans at present use that to promote coaly, oily productions. Would be nice if those subsidies were to go to renewable sources instead of archaic expensive health intimidating systems they now advocate for our future generations. Genetic flaws in our spawning habitat’s is not good. Whether it be fish or human.
On that matter of voters rights and the ambiguities affecting their abilities to vote and make it count. Less we fall into a corruptive political system. Observe Florida. They are #1 in political corruptions in the nation, no surprise there, as deemed by the Federal investigations’ into the amount of cases filed against all the states and were found guilty of violations. Rick Scott not to give up that infamous title. Goes forward with lopsided gerrymandering, that his own Supreme Court ruled it in violation, suppresses college students from vote registration to the point of fining them if not completed within a 48 hour time frame?? Now purging just before an election! LOL even he was purged, for a faulty I.D. system they have in Florida. Same faulty system that purged over 100,000 voters vote back in 2000 that got this Busch malarkey in place. LOL Guess who was governor at the time? Yup Jed Busch!!

Finally something we both agree on. In my job I see more abuse of government programs than you will in your entire life. There are generations of people that have learned how to work the system and don't know any other way of life and it is time to cut off the free loading. There are plenty of places to cut excess and abuse without throwing the baby out with the bath water. And it is time to start at the top and work your way down. It is real easy for elected officials to make decisions on Social Security and Medicare when it doesn't effect any of them, they have their own retirement and don't pay into the SS system. That needs to stop immediately! If it's good enough for the rest of the American citizens its good enough for the elected officials we send to Washington. We need to stop sending aid to foreign countries that hate us and are trying to destroy us and our way of life, that includes natural disasters that may strike their countries. We send BILLIONS of dollars around the world to earth quake, and tsunami victims, and just how many countries sent aid and volunteers to our shores to help after hurricane Katrina????? After 9/11 ??????? We have children going hungry in our own country, quit sending money to children in Africa, when we have homes in Appalachia that don't have electricity and running water, and children that don't have food to eat. There is suffering in our own back yard, we don't have to go to a foreign country to find it, so quit sending money elsewhere...KEEP IT HOME! Bring our soldiers home from Afghanistan and Iraq, and put them on the Mexican border with LIVE ammunition, and when you see people sneaking over the border, that is a crime...you shoot that AK47 over their heads, if that doesn't turn them around...you shoot at their feet...They are not citizens of this country and they have no rights....So Mr NRH Man, when you call me a Commie Liberal you could not be further from the truth, it just makes me mad when people spout off about wanting all of their piece of the pie, but don't want to share it with anyone else! And while I am at it, if you want to blame someone for Obama being in the White House there is only one person to lay that responsibility on, and it is John McCain for picking Sarah Palin as his Vice President! He is the cause of the out come of the 2008 election, totally and completely!
Voter think most of what you commented sounds good to me. Let us start at the top to prune back the foliage that is overgrown its root system and is killing the plant. Start with raising the taxes on the top 25% of our wealthy cronies‘, A level of say 70% to 90% of income. Oh don’t you worry about that being too much for they will dodge most of it anyways through capital gains, and various kick back tax free investments as well as offshore foreign investing that needs no IRS involvement. Yeah, similar to how Mitt Romney is doing it. 14% on just some of the monies that remained exposed to the IRS.
Stop the subsides to record producing corporations, that pay no taxes and receive $ Billions in welfare. Now the Pentagon, Whew! with its $ Trillion per year budget. Corruption is so rampant government is or has lost control to Military Industries. Excellent place to make say a $ 600 Billion per year cut.
I see you feel guilty about taxing the poor little Billionaires. Consider this. Thought experiment…. 2 guys buy a truck to service their individual businesses. One uses it 10% of the time while the other uses it 90% of the time. Now the 90% guy wants the 10% guy to pay 86% of the cost of fuel and maintainence of said vehicle, while the 90% guy will donate 14% and take the tax deductions for it… LOL and now the 10% guy is made to feel sorry that the 90% guy had to make such a huge donation. LOL,LOL,LOL

What a nasty piece of work.

"Texas Gov. Perry Says No To Medicaid Expansion

....About 1 in 4 Texans has no health insurance. And if Medicaid had been expanded as the federal law originally planned, more than 1.7 million people in the state were expected to get coverage." npr

Of course this loud mouth piece of **** gets HIS coverage through the taxpayer. Governor Perry hates Texans and is happy to see them bankrupt, in pain and dead from lack of health care.

Texas has had a severe drought. Not as long as the one decades ago but more severe. Dallas hits 110. Lake Travis used to be 50% full and now it is only 2/3rds full.

What are you going to use for water? People are packing up and leaving because they are scared to death of no water. What is going to happen to the value of your property in a state with a permanent water shortage? Want a lake house that looks over a field of dirt with a dock leading to nowhere?

So leave already. God, you keep talking about it and yet here you remain.

The reason Bishop Romney is receiving huge donations is they are an investment on his promise to:

- eliminate taxes for $200,000 of investment income

- eliminate inheritance taxes

- reduce or eliminate taxes for corporations, millionaires and billionaires

- provide UNLIMITED monies to expand the US military to wage war on Russia

Aside from the fact that he is insane, Bishop Romney is out to pad his own pocket further. The fact that he claims to have $102 Million in an IRA is astonishing.

I don't necessarily think that would be the case. Many military service members are Texan. Most military bases in Texas are owned by Texas and leased to the USA. Texas owns more tanks than the US Army. At the current rate, Texas is better financed than the USA.

We want the people to want Texas independence. When they want it, they will defend it. Watch those shows about car repos. How do people act when someone comes to take "their" stuff that they didn't even pay for? Why should we allow the Fed to take away our liberties which DO rightfully belong to us? We should be just as angry, or more, as the people on the repo shows.

Texas has everything we need from geography, state/national pride, natural resources to be a large, strong and VERY independent nation.

Sam Houston argued against Texas secession in 1860 because he knew Texas was not yet ready for independence. He said there would come a day, it just wasn't that day.

I will happily vote to seal the borders of Texas!

Let's do it next week.

Texans will have to get passports and Visas to travel into the USA. I doubt we will issue any Visas to Texans anytime soon.

Yes it was 50% full during the drought and now it still is only 2/3rds full.

Sucks for property prices when people are afraid the water will go away again...and never come back.

It isn't nice of Mother Nature to send back water in the form of massive hail balls but, heck, karma.

Climate Change. It fluctuates but the trend is still towards the extreme heat. The irony is not lost.

"Last year was so dry that lakes Travis and Buchanan recorded the lowest inflows since they were created about 70 years ago. Motal says the agency is concerned that 2011 might herald a new drought of record, 60 years after the 1950s drought.

...The drought has already hurt the state's image, he notes: Photographs of parched Lake Travis have become iconic.

"That sent a message off worldwide that Texas has a problem with water," Larson says. "And when we're out trying to recruit or retain jobs in Texas, that's going to be the No. 1 question: Do you have water available for us?"

If plentiful water is not available, then Texas' storied pro-business climate may start to dry up."

nps

Oops! Lake Travis is not 2/3rds full. It is 1/2 full. It used to be 2/3rds EMPTY.

My bad. Things are worse than I thought.

The fact is Texas couldn't cut it in the 1830s/1840s and we wouldn't be able to cut it today. We're about dead last in education and health insurance and many other things. Mississippi and Arkansas are ahead of us. And they are smart enough not to be talking about seceding! We have to get rid of this moron Rick Perry before we can get off the bottom.

Last time I checked 2/3rd full is more than 50%, so wouldn't that be an improvement? I don't know what "source" you are getting your "data" from, but the drought has eased up pretty well across the state. It's not back to normal everywhere yet, but it is better than last year. All the lakes around here are at or above the normal summer lows. and you might want to check your facts, the states population is increasing, not decreasing. If this is such a bad place to live, then why are so many people relocating here from the rest of the country?
