"We can't simply write off the youth vote as being liberal. We need to at least put up a fight when it comes to younger voters, who are actually more conservative on issues than is generally thought."

Town Hall Listening Sessions

I want to extend a big thank you to all of you who attended my Town Hall Listening Sessions across Texas’ 19th District these past few weeks. We heard some great ideas about how to best reform social security to make sure it’s still around for our children and grandchildren, and ways we can ensure better care for our veterans. I’m glad we all agree on the pressing need to secure our southern border to protect our communities and our legal immigration process.

Five People who Dems say can replace Hillary in 2016 race

I don’t know what excuse Hillary Clinton will use to bug out of the presidential consideration, but she will eventually do it. It’s because you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Hillary Clinton can’t campaign. Add to this the fact that she has done nothing, and you have a recipe for permanent retirement.   Read more »

Leaders and Losers Showcased in Ferguson, Missouri

The volatile situation in Missouri has showcased the profound difference between the character traits of leaders and losers. This week, we have seen:

1) The reckless abandon of criminals who used the situation as an excuse to engage in theft, vandalism, violence, and behave like animals.

2) The racists and race baiters, like Al Sharpton, who rush to the scene and exploit the situation in order to further their own personal racist agenda.   Read more »

Is John Culberson A Jeffersonian-Republican...Or Not?

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie down the second with chains of the constitution so the second will not become legalized versions of the first."-Thomas Jefferson.

I share that with you because the person I'm writing about espouses on his website to BE a Jeffersonian-Republican. This is a direct quote from his website,

Congressman Pete Sessions Visits General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility

Last week, I visited the General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility in Garland. While I was there I met with the General Manager and learned about the products that General Dynamics provides the U.S. military for all levels of strategic and tactical operations. They shared with me their concerns regarding regulations that strain their business and hinder them from being able to plan their finances for the future.

Businesses need laws that give them the certainty they need to grow their businesses, which is why I proudly support legislation that will permanently extend bonus depreciation to ensure that American companies can more easily plan for the future. I will continue to support these common sense solutions to ensure that businesses like General Dynamics will continue to thrive, create jobs, and serve as an integral part of the North Texas economy.   Read more »

Time for a Culberson Birthday Bash, No Time for a Town Hall During August Recess

Happy August recess, Congress! You know it's that time of year again, Congress is on a 'break' from work, that time of year when they finally have a chance to spend time with their constituents and discuss their voting record. Wait, what? What that should read is that Congress will be coming home to fill their coffers with more campaign donations by doling out more empty promises.

That is sadly the case more often than not, and it is the case for my Congressman, John Culberson. If you've been reading any of my posts over the past few years, you know I'm not shy when it comes to sharing Congressman Culberson's voting record, since I have done so several times. Now, what has me most upset is so far I have yet to hear of a town hall meeting to be scheduled for his constituents. What I did get was an invite to a birthday party...wait for it...for HIM.
