Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up—The Work Of Freedom Is Up To Each Of Us

Here is the weekly posting of the Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. TPA members are citizen-bloggers working for a better Texas.

Every Texan and every American has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and to run for public office.

(Above–Cover from the 1987 James Michener historical novel Texas. Here is a review and some reader opinions of this book.)

I run these words each week in this space. This is because there is nothing more important that I can tell you.

The work of freedom and justice is up to each of us.

Here is the round-up—

BossKitty at TruthHugger is amazed how blind America’s elected leaders are to the reality of climate changes. Headlines have described catastrophic climate and weather events, one after another for the past decade. Each year seems to break another record, at least in terms of human recorded history. So 2012 gives Americans a chance to elect responsive and responsible leaders. On Fire, Out of Food, Out of Water, Out of Power shows the reality Americans are facing. Who can we elect that will step up to save our future?

The great equalizer in any society is education, that’s why the regressives hate it so much. WCNews at Eye on Williamson points out that the GOP attack on public education will continue next session.

Off the Kuff notes that while Democrats want to talk about solutions in Texas, Republicans want to talk about things that will benefit themselves.

At TexasKaos, Libby Shaw explains how the Texas Tea Party Republicans Bur[ied] the Birther Hatchet. For Ted Cruz.

The stooges running Harris County elections came under the withering scrutiny of PDiddie at Brains and Eggs, and a proposal to appoint an elections administrator was met with moans of objection from Democratic activists. PDiddie reminds the naysayers that if you keep on doing what you’ve been doing, you’re going to keep on getting what you’ve got.

Rick Perry and his minions lied their asses off about there being money to pay for women’s health. CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme isn’t the least bit surprised.

Neil at Texas Liberal has been in Chicago this week. Neil has posted a number of pictures from the City of Broad Shoulders.

  1. I did not know Ted Cruz was born in Canada. And the article suggests that his father was pro Castro, but fled Cuba after a falling out with Fidel.I think there are no serious issues with Cruz’s citizenship, but he certainly seems less “American” than Obama.

    BTW, the link to that article doesn’t work, but it’s still up on the front page.
