“I can’t imagine a more transparent and open process than put it on the internet, invite people’s comments and discussion, and then have an open amendment process following debate, and then vote.”
Sen. John Cornyn (TP-Texas).
Senator – How about the process where you don’t negotiate a bill in secret closed-door meetings excluding opposition members and even most members of your party, and where you actually hold committee hearings, get input from experts and the public on both sides, have an open debate and not keep it under wraps until days before a supposed vote? How about that process – would that be more transparent and open?
“Let no one be mistaken Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded. It cannot be pacified or ignored for it will destroy a set of principles that has lifted more people out of poverty than any force in the history of the civilized world and that is the cause of conservatism.”
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, before he saw the light and the possibility of continuing to suck at the government teat as a fixture in a Trump regency. Red wonders how yesterday’s cancer so quickly becomes the star to which Perry now hitches his wagon.
“I’m anti-Obama, but I don’t think they are coming to take our guns away. I’m a whole lot more worried about the UN coming in and taking over the Alamo than I am about the federal government coming in and taking my guns away.”
“But that’s the thing about East Texas. Red dirt never quite washes out, and pine pollen is tenacious as original sin. You can leave East Texas, for Houston, for the Metroplex, for the Commonwealth, for New York, or Bonn or Tokyo or Kowloon; but you can never quite leave it behind.”

“We asked them to play. I will say there is less enthusiasm among the Aggie network now than there was back then. We have new friends and we like playing LSU and we like playing these folks. We’re hopeful that sometime in the future there will be a bowl game that we’re able to play in, you know,if [Texas] gets there. But the great thing about playing us is that you can get on real TV if you play us.”
Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp
Last time I checked the Aggies finished in 6th place in the SEC West in 2014, in 4th place in 2013 and in 3rd place in 2013. Maybe you should at least win your division in your conference before getting all high and mighty. Meanwhile, the Longhorns still suck.
“I wanna wake up in Texas. I miss those wide open skies. I miss my 20 acres, barbecues and pecan pies, oh, why? When I’m so far from you Texas, all I can do is cry.” Sandy the Squirrel from SpongeBob Squarepants.
