An article was published this week by TexasGOPVote.com, highlighting the deception behind our highest ranking Texas Republican; Gov. Greg Abbott.
Gov. Abbott appears to be sharing some lies spread by the Convention of States Project. Deception can be found in the repeated claim by COS, and now claimed by Gov. Abbott, that the late Justice Scalia was in favor of a con con. While that claim is partially correct, it is more lie than truth. Continue reading →
Here’s a thought that just occurred to me yesterday. Do you remember a bill that passed last year (HB 698)? I lobbied against it, but most of the sheeple thought it was a good idea. The bill expanded the collection of digital fingerprints by DPS for CHL applicants. Now everyone can submit digital fingerprints within 25 miles of their home. The “fiscal impact” statement says
“No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. It is assumed the costs of implementing the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.”
You know what that means – the feds are supplying the equipment through grants.
I will never ask permission to defend myself. CHLs are for one purpose – the collection of arms when the government wants to do that. We’ve got to wake up!
I am beginning to see how powerful the DPS is. It’s alarming.
Please call your legislator and say:
“I want Representative _ _ _ _ and Senator _ _ _ to contact the Texas Attorney General immediately and demand that the Attorney General issue an order to the Department of Public Safety to promptly cease collection of all 10 fingerprints from persons applying for new driver licenses, renewal driver licenses, and I.D. cards, at least until the 84th Texas Legislature convenes and can address this issue through statute.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is violating Texas law. They are collecting full sets of fingerprints – all 10 digits – against legislative intent of the following Texas bills passed:
– 1967 HB 354 (60th Legislature) – Added thumbprints or index fingerprints (if a thumb was not available) requirement to application for original or renewal driver license
– 1995 SB 1252 (74th Legislature) – Extended thumbprints or index fingerprint requirement to application for duplicate driver license and personal identification certificate
– 2005 HB 2337 (79th Legislature) – Established the Image Verification System – requiring DPS to authenticate the facial image and thumbprints or fingerprint provided by an applicant”
They’re violating the constitution! Let’s amend it! That will teach them!
There is quite a bit of misunderstanding regarding the several efforts for a quick fix to reign in our federal government. The 2014 TX GOP platform that was adopted creates conflicting statements (as is common throughout the platform). The 2014 TX Republican Platform now reads: Continue reading →
April 28, 2014 the Collin County Commissioner Court took up business from the prior week’s meeting to hear citizen comments and discuss the proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)* from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) working in conjunction with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), both of whom operate within the U.S. Department of the Interior. The proposed MOU addressed to Collin County Judge Keith Self specifically addresses 40,000 acres of land, minerals, and other “cultural resources” to be “analyzed” at Lake Lavon which are reportedly claimed to be under the jurisdiction of the BLM and the BIA.

A Convention of States Will Not Fix America – part I
Wikipedia: Many of the states’ older and more experienced leaders may have simply been too busy with the local affairs of their states to attend the Convention, which had originally been planned to strengthen the existing Articles of Confederation, not to write a constitution for a completely new national government.
