Liz Cheney is fighting for her political life in Wyoming as she faces real competition from Trump-backed Harriet Hageman for her House seat in the state’s […]
This is what voter suppression and intimidation look like. The Republican Party started early. One hopes Democrats are taking on only corrective actions but assertive and aggressive actions. The Harris County Attorney’s office on Thursday said it is looking into allegations a grass-roots group knocked on doors in Sunnyside and attempted to get residents to […]
It turns out it was Greg Abbott directly responsible for the billions of dollars Texans were ultimately responsible to pay during the grid failure. Even after the rolling blackouts were receding, he made sure Texans got the shaft. Ex-ERCOT chief says Abbott directed freeze blackouts to stop before decision to run up billions in bills […]

Because we don’t (and haven’t) seen housing as a human right we not only have the lack of adequate funding for public housing we have eviction bad laws.
I have a dog. He is a male mix breed, between a chihuahua and a Jack Russell terrier. To me, good company and a source of love and care (my road dog). The extortion was palpable.
This weekend I took my daughter, who’s had two strokes and is compromised on her left side, to Houston’s Abilities Expo. We encountered a rude, insensitive, foul-mouthed attendant.
This is what leadership looks like; unlike the Humble Independent School Board, whose lack of science-based serious care for our most precious resources, our kids, have already endangered many of their lives, our county leaders are acting responsibly.
Our local Kingwood Texas friend, Mike Collier (@CollierForTexas), is ready to kick the failed Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick out of office. Finally, someone who instead of giving away the store to corporate friends will do the bidding for Texas citizens.

Are imperial governance and the related constitutional wreckage taking Texans down a dangerous path to a constitutional crisis?
The elephant in the Texas voting booth that neither party wants to talk about is the suppression of a plurality of Texas voters. Surprise! There are more non-aligned and independent Texans than Democrats or Republicans.
People Making a difference
Young activist, Brialle Ringer, a Living Room Conversations, Communications Partner, made me think. Pleasure activism is where it is at.
Keshia is the activist who put her body between a mob and a KKK member who otherwise was going to get beaten to death. Sadly, she was unable to save her restaurant.

Garth Brooks super fan Debra Willey finally got to see you in Houston, TX, after several attempts and several thousand dollars — a shoutout maybe to her?
It seems Will Smith clocked Chris Rock pretty good at the #Oscars2022 for a bad Jada Pinkett Smith joke. Was this staged? Nope. He apologized while accepting his best actor speech.
Alex Trebek, the Canadian broadcaster who found fame in the United States as a game show host, has died at the age of 80.
Judge McLeod turned around his office in two months. McLeod and his staff accomplished more in 2 months than his predecessor did in two years.

Coffee Party Posts
The Coffee Party USA board of directors coalesced around a strong voter education and turnout strategy that we will be releasing in the forthcoming weeks.
Occupy Kingwood week 16 was successful and continuing. We had a very good turnout; from the very young to the more mature. In fact the donuts were mostly gone by the middle of the event. What I love about having a sustainable weekly short Occupy is that we get a perfect rotating participating group of […]

I will admit to be completely surprised by the Houston Chronicle covering the first radio show to stream live from Tranquility Park in Houston Texas for the Occupy Houston Rally.

by Egberto Willies and Keyan Bliss (Originally Published at Common Dreams) Three weeks after Christmas, the American judiciary gave telecommunications corporations a huge present. On January 14 a federal appeals court decided to weaken the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Internet Neutrality policy by striking down the rules it adopted in 2010 to regulate Internet service […]
It seems like I chose just about the right time to write an article on Wendy Davis. She finds herself under attack not only by the entire Right Wing establishment, but from the traditional media as well. She happens to be the story to balance the myriad of bad acts by Republicans. There is a […]
“This rewiring of sailing matters because of the immense emissions that cargo ships produce. Because they consume fossil fuels, much of our supply chain is riddled with emissions problems.”
Dear EarthTalk: What are the most recent projections about sea level rise around the world as a result of climate change? And is there any hope of turning back the tide if we rein in emissions as planned under the current iteration of the Paris agreement? –
