The clique who determines who's getting fired or hired long before the public ever knows about it?

Why can't we have more than one choice? Definitely Sullivan and Malcom. The Joyce family wasn't listed but should be.

The Morriss family are great people but they are content to allow the Democrats to own Bowie County. As long as they can sit at the top of the Republican Party and take Ralph Hall and John Cornyn to the Country Club, they are happy. Look at the donations to parties and people and you will see they play both sides as do most of the money people. They donate no money to local Republican candidates when one can be found. The do nothing to furthur the Republican Party locally. I don't expect them to go door knocking, just help elect Republicans if they profess to be one.

When you profess to be the leader of the party, you need to lead by example and support your local candidates. If they are not going to support financially, then the least they can do is endorse some Republican candidates. The time for fence sitting is past. You see where fence sitting has gotten us............. SOCIALISM. There is no more Democrat Party. It is now the Socialist Party or Progressive Party. Any way you look at it, we are now starting to look like a third world country. Soon there will not be a middle class, only the government elite and the workers. Socialism cannot survive with a middle class. I am not ragging on the Morrisses, I just think it is time for them to join the workers in the Party and get rid of the Socialists if they expect to keep their wealth.

One can resist an armed invasion but it is very difficult to resist an idea whose time has come.

This recent episode of "firing" TWU director Bill King was a water grab in reality. Whoever the "powers" are in Texarkana Texas, its clear that Mayor Shipp is in step with them, isnt it?
