This process must be followed in order to get rid of the Two Step, but what’s up with the laggards? Texans – are you happy about this?

Poor Attendance of Members of Advisory Committee

November 15, 2008 by End the Texas Two Step   

[Unfortunately, the TDP Advisory Committee has not published any minutes of their meetings, but Scott Cobb has been at every meeting so far except the one in Lubbock, so from his notes we know which members have been showing up to hear testimony from the public. The first meeting in Austin did not have any public testimony, but it was the best attended meeting. Since that initial meeting, attendance of the committee members has dropped off by about half. Some people have still never attended any meetings, including the first one. A few more have never attended any meetings where the public was allowed to testify. JB Hall is the only committee member who has attended every meeting. Linda Burgess and Senator West have only missed one meeting each. Good for them!…]

The USA is currently unable to democratically elect a presidential candidate!

Voting has already begun in places like Virginia, and other states are still trying to register voters, yet we are just getting ready to have our first debate on Friday between McCain and Obama. I turn your attention to this recent article:

An interesting kerfluffle has arisen in Michigan. No doubt the Obama campaign had an ulterior motive in picking Michigan. After all, they have a lot of PR work to do in making up for their own delegate theft. That Michigan might turn out to be one of the battleground states, makes the stakes all the higher. So recently this little tidbit came out:

Former GOP operative explains why Republicans will use foreclosure lists to block voters

By EARTHA JANE MELZER 9/15/08 10:05 AM

Unfair but “probably” legal, using foreclosure lists provides a cheap and effective strategy for McCain campaign (more…)

“No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed from the enemy until it is ripe for execution.”


 2004 was a tragic year, for it was the year that the DNC Civil War started. Having been in the wilderness for years, the bridgehead was not reached, and ashen despair marked the brow of the Liberals. It was the year that the Liberals followed the Muse over to the dark side. Rather than fight Machiavelli, they added him to their email list. Rather than fight the Republicans, they decided to dump the whole shebang and throw everyone under the bus. In a effort to prevent the final death, they let the Great Bat in at night. (more…)

Sometimes Things Turn Out Unexpectedly

“Fancy rules over two thirds of the universe, the past and future, while reality is confined to the present.”

Jean Paul Richter

 In the late seventies, due to economic changes and events in my family, we found ourselves in a small town in Eastern Washington, where my husband had obtained a job. It was a fragile time. I had left college again as a consequence of this necessary move, just as I had nine months prior, left work in order to go to back to school. Our daughters had left their friends and community roots. My husband, after working as an urban planner, took a job as laborer’s foreman at a nuclear power plant. (more…)

I just got another donor request pleading for donations to the DNC. This prompted me to think about the status of Obama/McCain donations. As you are probably aware, we don’t usually get to see the data until around the 20th of the following month. However, the Candidates campaigns must account for their funds accumulated on an end of month basis. The DNC is attempting to coordinate their push with the needs of all their candidates. Thus, the plea for contributions before midnight has arrived. I checked in with the League of Women Voters. See their thoughts on presidential campaign finance disclosure thus far:

League, Reform Groups Compare Senators McCain and Obama on Donor Disclosures

The League and reform organizations sent follow-up letters to Senators McCain and Obama seeking full disclosure of donor information on bundlers to their presidential campaigns. The groups also released a chart that compares how far each candidate has come in meeting the groups’ requests for transparency and disclosure.
