  8. The impacts are extremely obvious, but the government never passes on a chance to waste taxpayer money

  9. Politics is like a drug...can ruin everything, and is addictive to many people. Very expensive.

    Wouldn't it be great if they would just stop being so self-important?

  11. Great timing, Dan. They’ll receive invitations July 29, accept July 30. Enjoy those “hearings” August 2.
     
  12. Just announced by Dan Patrick office…

    ”Texas University will not be allowed to leave the Big XII. A compromise might be reached that would allow them to leave, if they agree to drop the word “Texas” from the name.”

    Stay tuned for additional announcements from the Lt. Gov.’s office. In the mean time…
    GO FROGS!

  13. Funny. I expected the signatures would be in blood, gathered from a number of daggers drawn from the backs of the former Conference mates...
