    Its her district, which thanks to gentrification is actually starting to change a bit.

    Yes, she's an embarrassment.

    Sheila Jackson Lee who believes we put a man on Mars represents a very poor African American Community. She got about 80,000 votes out of a city so she doesn't represent the majority in this city.

    Thank you for the clarification. There is hope for Houston after all. Austin, OTOH... not so much.

    Can a Governor veto a bill so he can receive a bribe?

It is a state where individuals still can be successful and it is a great state to raise a family.

    Yes, I have seen what the Republicans have done but traveling around the country I have seen what liberalism has done to some very great areas as well. I can pick and choose where I live so I control my property taxes. I don't believe it is the Federal Taxpayers responsibility to fund mine or your health care. Healthcare is a personal responsibility and is best handled in the state. This state has dozens of options and of the uninsured more than half qualify for a state program but never sign up.

    I believe local communities should control the education and live in an area that does that. The best move I ever made was to TX in 1992. Unfortunately many Texans and apparently you are one of them don't really realize what you have here. Suggest you travel more, live in other areas of a while and see how "bad" you have it here.
    I have lived in other states, and I never said I had it "bad" here. I like Austin just fine, though I don't go into Williamson County with it's backward Republican corruption. I didn't just move here though. I was born here, and my heritage goes back generations here in Austin, all the way back to the creation of the state of Texas. I know this state very well, and I love it deeply. I just don't agree with what Republicans are doing to my beloved state, or for that matter, the nation as a whole.

    A governor can veto a bill for any reason he wants. If it is proven that he took a bribe then he would be prosecuted for taking the bribe, not the veto. what bribe did Perry take?

    Now I answered your question, when will you answer mine. What did the Republicans do to hurt you and your family that has led to this extreme hatred and disdain for anyone with a "R" After their name?

    Results matter compared to feelings. The results of TX are exceptional and don't support your claims. You seem to like the progressive ideology so much why stay in TX, move to California. Have you paid any attention to what the Progressives have done to that state?

    I live in Williamson county and here's one of the reasons why. Robber baron Leftist elitist like this.

    32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.
    Matt. 10:32-33
