|Want some oversight of the hospital district election?|
The Secretary of State's office will send a State Inspector to watch the Somervell County Hospital District Election if we ask|
According to the Texas Election Code, we can get the Secretary of State's office to send down a State Inspector to watch and report any issues. I, for one, would feel a whole lot better knowing it is being overseen by people from outside the district!! The part of the Texas Election Code that covers this is documented here: ELECTION CODE TITLE 3. ELECTION OFFICERS AND OBSERVERS CHAPTER 34.....

Somervell County Hospital District Dissolution Petition picking up steam again|
It is time for an update! First, A short history for those who are not in the know and where to find the petition. As we move closer to election time and as the weather has started to warm up I am seeing an increase in petition activity. We are over 20% of required signatures and considering they were gathered in the coldest part of the year from the end of november until now, I think that is.....

|Republicans are NOT credible.|
EVERY Ad by a Texas Republican brings in Obama? When will Sid Miller denounce Ted Nugent?|
Republican Theme ALWAYS- President Obama is the DEVIL, the Boogieman under the bed and always to be brought up to Boo-Scare people. This is really why a lot of people don't vote Republican, including me, because I don't want to be associated with racists and bigots. So why not only do Republicans ALWAYS bring up Obama in their campaign ads and WHY do they want to court people like Ted Nuge.....

Does it really matter to you where your tax money goes? |
If I have a business and it is a private business, run entirely by own funds, no government grants, loans, etc, and I am a poor manager, then it's entirely my own affair. No one can say "I want to see how you are running your business", although there may be some interest if my business goes under, to which I can say MYOB. It's a different story when a business or entity is op.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 2/13/2014|
THIS>>>> Why Dale Hanson is King- Several NFL officials are telling Sports Illustrated it will hurt him on draft day because a gay player wouldn't be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable, because that's a man's world. You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused- Brain Dump Tuesday|
I'm a Democrat, not a Republican. Therefore there isn't anyone running for judge that I would vote for (a few of them I wouldn't vote for anyway) and I won't cross party lines to vote for a party that might as well call itself John Bircher extremists. But if I was to vote Republican, I'd vote for Jerry Lee, because he'll go clean up that hospital district mess. Other than t.....
