Texas Progressive Alliance Weekly Round-Up March 2, 2009

March 2, 2009

It’s the first of another week, and that means it’s time to look at some of the best posts by TPA members in the last week. Here are this week’s submissions:

McBlogger takes a look at possibilities for 2010.

Bay Area Houston is following a bill to abolish the Texas Residential Construction Commission.

BossKitty at TruthHugger is sad to see that some things have not changed in the minds of the loosers – CPAC Fans Fuse of Hatred – Seeks Civil War

jobsanger discussed a couple of Supreme Court cases. The first case discussed in A Good Supreme Court Decision denied anyone convicted of misdemeanor domestic abuse the right to own a gun, and the second case discussed in The Right To Know The Penalties, which will be heard this Fall, will settle the matter of whether an immigrant defendant has a right to be informed of all penalties that could be imposed in his case — including deportation.

Off the Kuff takes a look at the push for expanded gambling in the Lege this session.

Can you read this resolution, posted on Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS and find any good reason why Big Oil should get to keep the hydraulic fracturing exemption from our Safe Drinking Water Act? Yeah, TXsharon didn’t find one either.

nytexan at  BlueBloggin comments on the  Hypocritical GOP Fiscally Responsible and with no surprise, the world of the GOP is definitely a parallax view.

The Texas Cloverleaf reviews the TX Stonewall biennial conference in Austin, and notes who was or wasn’t there, among elected officials and hopefuls.

WCNews at Eye On Williamson posts on the economic changes that are starting to show up locally in The state of the economy in Williamson County.

Neil at Texas Liberal states his intent to make videos for the blog in Big Texas Liberal Blogging Announcement and Innovation. Also, Neil discusses if Ice Age beasts in Massive Fossil Find-Should Ice Age Creatures Be Brought Back From The Dead?

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme is hopeful that the adults will address the drug cartel violence and figure out how to end the war – the drug war that is.

Rhetoric & Rhythm laments the fact that George W. Bush has become a scapegoat for the conservative movement. Bush did everything they wanted. It’s not HIS fault that their ideas don’t work.

Xanthippas at Three Wise Men, on the mixed bag that is the Obama administration’s decision to try captured terrorist suspect al-Marri in the criminal justice system and what this might mean for the future of the “war on terror.”

Do you know the real reason John Sharp and Bill White aren’t running for governor? Because they’re afraid they will get whipped by a girl, just like Rick Perry. So says PDiddie at Brains and Eggs.

Over at Texas Kaos the 2.7 trillion that Duyba forgot to mention as part of his deficit. As Libby tells it the bubble dwellers who should have been on top of this little detail weren’t. “…The bubble dwellers don’t know what is going on outside of their self-fixated bubble. Now I understand why President Obama leaves that nutty and toxic place when he wants to speak to real people…”

WhosPlayin has video and commentary on Lewisville’s first Barnett Shale gas well.

    Good work
    I visit your website for the first time.
    I found the Texas Progressive Alliance very interesting and mostly liked the post “A Cour Supreme Court Decision of the Blogger Jobsanger. In fact I have waited for years for the Supreme Court’s decision that verified the right of Americans to own a gun. It’s really dangerous for the society that those convicted of domestic violence own gun.
