Texas Progressive Alliance Blogger Round-Up Is The Gift You Wanted Most

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

Today is the day after Christmas and I’m in a light blog posting holiday frame of mind.

Is this round-up of the best bloggers in Texas not enough?

Don’t forget–The best gift you can give yourself and others is the gift of your greater involvement in public affairs in 2011.

This is also the last round-up I’ll be posting in 2010. Be sure to raise a bit of hell between now and the New Year.

Do pretty much whatever you want as long as you don’t drive drunk.

The round-up—-

Off the Kuff reminds you that expanded gambling is still doomed in the next legislative session.

The EPA Imminent and Substantial Endangerment Order to Protect Drinking Water in Southern Parker County has spawned a media frenzy but news sources only tell part of the story. TXsharon has a short timeline of events surrounding the water contamination that should change the conversation, atBLUEDAZE: Drilling Reform for Texas.

Led by the so-called “professional left”, Texas Democrats locked Aaron Pena in the virtual town square stocks and hurled rotten tomatoes at him until he cried. “Call Out Aaron” Day was the social media hit of the holiday season, by all accounts (except Pena’s). See PDiddie and Brains and Eggsfor details.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants to know how deluded you have to be to pick Dick Armey as Texan of the Year.

Neil at Texas Liberal ran the Dan Patrick family Christmas sugar cookie recipe that the senator posted on Facebook. In addition, Patrick announced an update on the Tea Party caucus in the Texas Legislature. After you eat enough of the Patrick cookies loaded with butter and sugar, you can go and die because the Tea Party Caucus made sure you had no health insurance.

Mean Rachel got really pissed off at Aaron Pena.

TexasVox went absolutely crazy covering the sunset hearings on the TCEQ and Railroad Commission this last week, and if you missed it, you can get caught up here.

Bay Area Houston has a message. Dear Aaron: Hispanics do not like cowards.

  1. Fracking still catches people by surprise who don’t even know what it is. Bluedaze started me collecting articles some time ago. My http://opitslinkfest.blogspot.com/2009/07/water-wealth-power.html list has some hummers : this one will knock the socks off the ignorant.
