2. Bribary is barbaric.

Who'd think a mispelling would reveal the etymology of a word?

5. HSBC

has been screwing homeowners for years. If you have a mortgage with them they force your original homeowners insurance out and replace it with a much more pricey insurance, usually twice the price. Forced placed insurance is illegal yet they do it all the time.

6. Life under Republican rule! Please, everyone, start demanding COMPLETE CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM!!!

It is the only way to get our Representative Democracy back! Most politicians today can and are being bought by special interests. We are all crazy to allow this bribery to continue! Republicans and Democrats should all want Representative Democracy back. Republicans need to understand that the corporations and the 1% do not care about their social issues and frankly, many other issues near and dear to the Republican heart (if some actually have one)! We need to start demanding Complete Campaign Finance Reform! That is when the proverbial shit will hit the fan. They (1% & corporations) will not relinquish power easily, but it is down to doing this, or having everyone in abject poverty except the 1%.

7. A 20 % hike in homeowner insurance and those who vote for it will become a 2014 campaign

issue in Texas. So will slashing education funding, along with more toll roads and a lot of other misdeeds by Texas lawmakers, or should I say lawtakers.

Texas, turning bluer?

9. The problem is that the Dem vote is urbanized

Kinda like in Pennsylvania. Dem win the votes in all the major cities, but loose all the other counties. And well Texas has lot of damn counties...

10. Breaking the law is business as usual for Republicans....

When caught, they change the law so it's not a crime....

Until a Democrat does it.
