Lovelies, in my other blogging life, I am a volunteer for Independent Texans and for a few months I promised/offered to help out with their blog. Someone moved it from Blogger to Wordpress and I am (still) not too Wordpress savvy, (hate the template they picked oh well) but we're getting closer and closer to our Governor's election time. Pls check out the link and roam around the site. If you want to leave a comment by the way, I haven't figured it out how to allow that. I thought I changed the setting to not moderate, but I'll have to call the techie volunteer to walk me through that one. This election is important as Perry has been making deals for the Trans Texas Corridor (Nafta highway anyone? Cheaper goods coming in from China bypassing Mexico leaving the latter just a wee bit more poor), and Strayhorn has been fighting it, not just in name denouncing it, but showing up on meetings and gatherings all over Texas. Also, big issue (for me) is the imposed toll roads by Campo. We're not talking toll roads on new roads that were built to alleviate congestion, but existing in city roads that have no viable alternatives, actively taxing people (people who can't afford it) twice. Check it out.
