Filibuster, no compromise message from #TCOT

Remember those words “hope over fear?” Merely two weeks later, the new suit in the oval office, threatens: failure to act and act now will turn crisis into catastrophe. Side note, he’s talking about voting yes on what is affectionately termed Porkulus.

He wanted to make sure Senators knew there’s an economy to save for all of us suckers out here in the heartland while they debate their version of “stimulating” the economy, which will be pouring kerosene on the pyre.

A few days ago, I joined a very active group Top Conservatives on Twitter (TCOT.) Here’s a message:

#TCOT to Senate Republicans: filibuster now! No compromise! Blog it, Fax it, Phone it Tweet it, Email it!

Tweet? See why Bud Kennedy says Republicans are all a-Twitter in this Fort Worth Telegram article.

#TCOT wants the Senate to stop this nonsense. Now!

Maybe we’ll trust them with the economy when they learn simple arithmetic.

Meanwhile there’s a feeding frenzy at the trough among dozens of lobbyists with applications to prowl around congressional hallways. Their efforts will focus on, what else? The stimulus package.

Meanwhile, here in North Texas, taxpayers should be on alert.

Dallas News, February 6: Trinity Parkway could cost close to $1B more than the North Texas Tollway Authority can afford to pay to build it. (That B stands for billion, and it should come as no surprise to any of us.)


NTTA has only about $400 million to contribute. City of Dallas? No more than $84M; meanwhile NTTA has a 2014 deadline to complete this 10 mile bridge across the bottomland of the Trinity River.

Dallas Mayor Leppert says not to worry; there are “a lot of buckets of funding to dip into.”

Sorry, Grandkids, my generation is leaving a mess for you to clean up.
