To my true liberty loving friends, something I heard when I first became involved in politics; liberty is messy. I couldn't agree more. So, light the bar-b-que and crack open a cold one this Independence Day to celebrate...

Can we just stop? I know it's the fault of people on the left AND the right, but could we just stop politicizing EVERY issue and every item? We're politicizing food; most recently with Blue Bell ice cream, and over the past...

"We're all in this together." To quote Bill Lumberg from the cult classic Office Space, "I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you there." Many of you know that Mayor Turner is proposing a temporary tax hike to...

What the State of Texas needs is more un-elected bureaucrats and more management districts able to pass bonds stealthily and meet without notifying the public. Said no one ever. I can't remember the last time I met a tax...
