Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up—Automobile Of A Proud Texan

Here is the weekly round-up of the Texas Progressive Alliance. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. TPA members are citizen-bloggers who are working hard 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 even run for public office.

With the round-up this week is a picture of the automobile of a proud Texan. I took this photo while out and about on the streets of Houston.

The round-up—

There’s still redistricting going on, as Harris County tries to redraw its county commissioners’ precincts. So far, the main thing they’ve done is attract a lawsuit from Latinos who say they have retrogressed the one Latino opportunity district. Off the Kuff has the scoop.

The Response had better than expected attendance, a very diverse crowd, and the event’s sponsors made a sincere effort to have the event be all about one man (not the governor of Texas). Having praised it, PDiddie at Brains and Eggs then proceeded to rip it. Wide open.

Our economy is in bad shape and is unlikely to get better any time soon. WCNews at Eye On Williamson tells us the reason why: The politics of the economy are upside down.

Prior to The Response, Letters From Texas predicted the response to the response to The Response.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme is disgusted with the republican campaign to destroy the middle classkick the poor to kingdom come and abandon the elderly.

This week Left of College Station began Rick Perry’s Texas project, telling the truth about the governor’s record in Texas. From Perry’s scores on climate change to the fact that the Texas economic miracle was really a stimulus miracle.

This week at McBlogger, Harry offers forth from the Book of Balczak his take on Prayerapalooza.
