The decline in readership of mayor newspapers in America can be blamed on many factors. One is lack of trust in reporting facts that are in fact opinions not labeling them as such.
It used to be said that partisanship stops at the border, implying unity in foreign affairs. No more, as for Democrats it doesn't matter what President Trump does, it's wrong, it's stupid, he is out of control and is a...
I had a front row seat for the Houston Mayor's election runoff and with your indulgence, a few observations.
Buzbee asked a question of his fellow citizens recently, "Can anyone look at the present state of Houston city government and say: Let's have four more years of this?"
Below are the questions we asked City of Houston candidates and give a letter grade based on their responses. In some instances there was no response, like Sylvester Turner, who doesn't want your vote.
Let's be clear, the daily newspaper we grew up with is dying. With declining circulation, and significant staff reductions, most papers outside New York, Los Angeles or Washington D.C. have minimal local coverage and reprint...
Why? First, does it trouble you, the voter, that METRO (train and bus system) is spending over $8.5 million of your tax dollars to sell this plan to you? This is something that should be illegal.
In the "You Can't Make This Up" department, the Houston Chronicle announces support for Sylvester Turner for Mayor while on its front page tells us "Rocky Roads Ahead - Years of Underfunded Maintenance Leave Houston Task of...
While the Mayoral candidates debate, our crime situation analytics are a useful tool in evaluating where we stand. Location Inc. is a SAAS company that uses analytics and mapping tools to power risk assessment. Think of it...
The New York Times used to be a newspaper that reported the news from a liberal slant. However, they were journalists at heart, no more.
It's already 2020 and the Texas primary is coming up fast on March 3, 2020.
In 2002, I lamented the attacks on the Boy Scouts by the politically correct crowd. Why not gay leaders? What about transgender boys? And while you are at it, why not girls? They gave in and now with the latest news, it...
I recently had a front row seat in the City of Houston runoff race between Sylvester Turner and Tony Buzbee.
In the Houston Mayor runoff on December 14, 2019, one thing is clear - Sylvester Turner is doing all he can to make partisan a non-partisan race. In the modern history of Houston elections, Turner is the first candidate...
The runoff for Houston Mayor is December 14, 2019. There is a stark choice, Tony Buzbee, an independent fiscal conservative who expects accountability and significant progress in curing Houston's chronic problems, or career...
There are only two days left to vote - today, the last day of early voting and of course Tuesday, Election Day, November 5th - which means conservatives have only two days to change the direction of the city of Houston.
The following are the questions posed on the TCR Candidate Questionnaire along with the correct answers. Questions not answered by a candidate were graded as incorrect. Candidates who did not respond were given a grade of "F...
Harris County
Elections have consequences. So in the last election, Harris County voters voted straight Democrat in historic numbers, because they thought "Beto" O'Rourke (and his $100 million) was the second coming and they were not big...
Years ago, it was proposed that voters get a third choice in political races, none of the above. Looking at the major Democratic candidates, it would be an appropriate choice.
It used to be that political disagreements stop at our shore. However, the nasty political climate has the Democrats so hysterically anti-Trump that they seem to be rooting for China!
