Even At Texas State Capitol, U.S. Flag Flies Above Texas Flag—TPA Blogger Round-Up

Here is the weekly round-up of the Texas Progressive Alliance. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas.

With the round-up this week is a picture of the Texas State Capitol that I took from Wikipedia. You’ll notice in this photo that the U.S. flag is above the Texas flag.

This is just how it should be. The states derive their existence from the fact of our federal union taken as a whole.

For all the blustery talk about states rights and all that jazz, we see the real facts even at the Texas State Capitol.

TPA bloggers never rest in bringing you the facts about what is going on in Texas politics.

Please visit TPA bloggers every chance you get.

Here is the round-up—

Off the Kuff published interviews with Democratic candidates Jeff WeemsHector Uribe, and Hank Gilbert.

BossKitty at TruthHugger is disgusted again. This is a very serious election, but America is the deer in the headlights and appears to be frozen. So the last thing he wants to hear is “its a TRUCK”! This election is all spin and conspiracy (not that previous elections haven’t been) but this one is critical because it’s hinting at rolling back what progress has been achieved. Israel is sliding, America is sliding and the radicals are ready. This is NOT the choice American’s should face.

Matthew Dowd, a Bushbot, longs for the glory days of the Bush presidency and envisions Rick Perry as president. That sound you hear is CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme retching uncontrollably.Bay Area Houston says that during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,Americans are truly a sick bunch of people.

nytexan at BlueBloggin is beyond irritation at the continual hypocrisy of Congress and the Republican agenda of NO. The latest example is Senators Coburn and Brown Take Pay Raise and Say No To Federal Employees. It’s stunning that the US Congress can continue to give themselves pay raises every few years and then claim that federal employees are overpaid. Tom Coburn believes “we need to expect more, and we need to pay less”.

The Texas governor is apparently going to finish the 2010 campaign much the way he started it: remaining cowardly, and trying to get re-elected based solely on his good looks.

WCNews at Eye On Williamson posts (again) on the failure of our state’s leadership: Public school finance continues to be a problem.

WhosPlayin writes about why it is so important for Texans to log on to http://www.donatelifetexas.com and check the status of their organ donor registration, and sign up if they haven’t already.

Neil at Texas Liberal attended the Governor’s race debate on the topic of education that was held in Houston. All the candidates were there … except the incumbent.
