Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up—The Same Message Each Week Because You Already Know The Underlying Facts

Below you will find 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.

The work of freedom is up to each of us.

It’s true that I say much the same thing each week with the round-up.

This is because the facts of the matter are clear enough. You don’t need me or anybody else to tell you that Rick Santorum is a right-wing extremist.

What we all do need is some encouragement to get involved when evevrybody is so busy with day-to-day life, and when our public affairs seem to be run by big money and malicious people.

Everybody has the ability to at least make an effort.

Here is the round-up–

Meanwhile, Off the Kuff ran the numbers for those maps that were proposed by AG Abbott.

While we may have plenty of jobs in Texas, many don’t pay very well, which has led to a chasm of income disparity. WCNews at Eye On Williamson make clear that economic inequality in Texas needs to be addressed.

Sex Ed 101 by Louie Gohmert featured lectures on both caribou and human sexuality last week. Read on, if you dare, at Brains and Eggs, but have some anti-nausea medication close by just in case.

At TexasKaos, Libby Shaw reports that the blob of hate-filled vitriol known as Andrew Breitbart lost his marbles at the most recent conservative confab last weekend . Quelle shock! Read about it here: Esteemed Conservative Leader Loses It at CPAC.

Neil at Texas Liberal used a well-done Coca-Cola display at a local store to ask folks to show some Valentine’s Day love for our fellow working people.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wonders why Republicans hate women so very, very much.
