The State Department's Spending Spree

The United States State Department is on an art spending spree.

First, it spent $1 million for a granite statue at the London Embassy. It is modern art. It looks like a stack of bricks.

Now it has spent $400,000 for a statue of a camel that will be sent to the Embassy in Pakistan. Is this really necessary? I mean, a camel?   Read more »

Congressman Farenthold Introduces “Contempt Act” to Prohibit Taxpayer-Funded Salaries for Government Officials Found in Contempt of Congress

Last week I officially introduced H.R. 4447, the “Contempt Act.” H.R. 4447 would simply prohibit any federal employee who is found in contempt of Congress from receiving his or her salary. More specifically, the bill would officially direct the employer of any officer or employee of the federal government who is in contempt of Congress to not pay compensation to the officer or employee while he or she remains in contempt.   Read more »

Military High-Tech deployed to speeders

Imagine what the government can do with technology. Government can track your speed, and now it can give you this warning, if you are speeding!

The LRAD systems weigh from 15 to 320 pounds (6.8 to 145.1 kg) and can emit sound in a 30° beam at 2.5 kHz.   Read more »

If Unconstitutional Republicanism Triumphs, The Constitutional Standard Is History

I recently posted about what I think is a practical and necessary prescription for campaigning, pursuing, and unifying all Republicans. It is hardly a novel ambition, but has become ever more so in the popular culture, only nominal in the Democrat party, and unfortunately quite endangered in the Republican Party. I modified those comments and asked for another posting days later. I hoped to generate more comments

Congressman Neugebauer Votes for Plan to Balance Budget

I released the following statement after the House passed Rep. Paul Ryan’s 2015 budget proposal, the Path to Prosperity. The budget cuts spending by $5.1 trillion over time, and balances in ten years.

Our country can’t go on spending more than we take in. That’s not fair to American families who work hard to balance their own budgets and pay their taxes. We owe it to them to make responsible decisions.   Read more »

Who Says The Left is the Party Of Science?

Most recently, Mother Jones produced a study by the Union of Concerned Scientists that if you were a Fox listener, you were misinformed on climate change because we all know that man is responsible for climate change and the world is about to go into overdrive in a heat wave. The problem with this survey is that the latest studies have repudiated much of the alarmist charges about climate change, and it is Mother Jones and the Union of Concerned Scientists who are wrong.
