Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up Is A Treasure Chest Of Information And Insight

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

It might appear that I’ve skimped on today’s post as I offer up little in the way of my own orginal material. But the truth is that in providing you this portal to the finest politcal bloggers in our State of Texas, I’ve provided  you a treasure chest of information and insight.

However, just in case this is not enough for the blog reading public, here is a link to possible locations of buried treasure in Texas.

Maybe you will be the lucky enough to find the long-missing Newton Gang loot of Uvalde County.

Hopefully though, the treasure you are seeking is a more fair and just Texas.

For as it says in Luke 12:34–…. where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The round-up—

If the goal of the 81st Texas Legislature and Governor Rick Perry is to stifle job creation in Texas for the next two years, then Off the Kuff says they’re knocking it out of the park.
Letters From Texas rolls its collective eyes about the word games played by the Republicans in charge as they announce their Senate subcommittee to find “non-tax revenue.” Earth to Republicans: if we used to own it, but now the government owns it, it’s a tax.

Musings looks ahead to 2021 in Connecting the Dots: Killing Education, Killing Unions, Funding the Tea Partiers. Give it a look. The videos are worth the price of admission by themselves!

WCNews at Eye On Williamson has something to say about the austerity budget: House Appropriations passes budget – tea party blamed for cuts.

In the latest post regarding the poll he’s conducting on the mortgage interest tax deduction, PDiddie at Brains and Eggs explains why he has never owned a home.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme warns that Republicans are near their goal of killing public education for K-12 and at the university level.

Neil at Texas Liberal apologized for ever having voted for Houston city councilmember C.O. Bradford for any public office. Neil feels that voting for Mr. Bradford was one of the worst ballot box mistakes he has ever made.

refinish69 at Doing My Part for the Left is ever amazed by the stupidity of the Texas Lege. It is the gift that keeps on giving. Case in point is Rep. David Simpson’s Don’t Touch My Junk Bill.

This week, McBlogger takes a look at what austerity will do to Texas.
