Texas Progressive Alliance – May 25, 2009
It’s a special Memorial Day edition of the Texas Progressive Alliance weekly blog roundup. Here are the highlights:
WhosPlayin only had Random Thoughts this week, but guest blogger Calvin Tillman – mayor of Dish, TX – weighed in with his thoughts on the Stacked Deck being dealt by the Texas Railroad Commission and their bias towards the interests of the oil and gas companies.
At Left of College Station, Teddy reports on the recent increase in violence, the withdrawal of troops, and the possibility of what could happen in the war that has vanished from public debate: the fading w, ar in Iraq.
New TPA member blog Castle Hills Democrats ran a satire piece by the blogger’s good friend Melinda, poking fun at those who say they’re Tired of Big Government.
Rick Carney, Gov. Suckseed’s political consultant, likened efforts to broaden the appeal of the Texas Republican Party “becoming a whorehouse”, and for some reason several of Kay Bailey’s female supporters took offense. PDiddie at Brains and Eggs pops the corn and documents the atrocity.
Over at TexasKaos, TxSharon begs Congress to Close the Halliburton Loophole. She explains that the drilling industry is the only industry allowed to pump toxics into our water sources without special permission! Read the rest!
BossKitty at TruthHugger is totally pissed off that Republicans continue to take paranoid revenge on Democracy when it comes to serious legislation. They play dirty and spiteful games to get their pet projects injected into serious bills to help battered American Retirees: Retire Early In Self Defense Could Be A Mistake
