A ‘Broken’ America…

As I recently reported, I hoped to start writing here more often. In fact, I had a story ready to post last Friday, but after the events involving the sniper attack on Dallas Police on Thursday, I decided to postpone it.

Today I’m outlining the first of two proposals I have for the Convention of States to Amend the Constitution.

Open Casket with Hand holding Phone

The hunt for Rachel at Cardholder Services

Rachel calling...

Editor’s note: This is the first of four parts about the annoying “Rachel” from Cardholder Services telemarketing calls. Back in January, I spotlighted the nightmare that is “Rachel”, and a court case to stop her. Little did I know, that I was only scratching the surface, and the facts in this case go much deeper.

The case for Voter ID

Texas Driver's License, Voter Registration Card and a "Vote" Button

Transportation Security Officers

As the state legislative session began winding down last week, I started following certain bills of interest, including HB 1937, which, as I discussed before, would prohibit the TSA from touching “private parts” during screening. Much to my surprise, the bill, which passed  unanimously out of the House, was withdrawn before being brought to the vote Tuesday.  With …
