The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Around the world and here in Texas, Leftists openly attack the concept and practice of free speech and expression while claiming their free expression should have no boundaries.

It is easier than you think for county commissioners to block property tax increases each year; it only takes two commissioners to do so. So why do so few, who often talk a big game against taxes at election time, have so little courage to actually do so. Some are standing for taxpayers.

What’s with all the shady “game rooms” around Texas and why do so many jurisdictions do little to nothing to shut the places down? I think that in many cases there is a certain amount of corruption among officials causing them to put enforcement low on their priority lists.
