Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up 9/21

Fall is upon us, and so the Texas Progressive Alliance closes out another summer with some more hot blogging.

Halliburton was fracking for Cabot and...Oh Oops! We Spilled Some! TWICE! Deadly Hydraulic Fracture Fluid! Ironically, industry just released part of their $80 million propaganda campaign asking people to submit "Eureka" moments. From TXsharon at Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS.

Congressman "Deer in the headlights" Pete Olson (R-TX) gets called out at his town hall meeting and the police are called in!

The Texas Cloverleaf wonders when police departments will enter the 21st Century. A San Antonio lesbian couple sues in federal court over blatant harassment in their own home.

This week at McBlogger, Mayor McSleaze took the time out of his life to educate you people on some things going on around the country.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme notes Rick Perry won't admit execution might have been a mistake. To be a Republican is never to say you're sorry.

At Texas Vox, nuclear energy and economic experts explain just how much is at stake with the South Texas Nuclear Project expansion -- the entire San Antonio economy.

Off the Kuff takes note of some hot judge-on-prosecutor action going on at the Court of Criminal Appeals.

Neil at Texas Liberal ran a one-minute video this week, filmed in front of hurricane remembrances in Galveston, Texas, in which he made a plea for folks to be aware of the past.

Kay Bailey has two purse boys, and Rick Perry is unaware there is a recession. Sometimes the cluelessness and utter hypocrisy of Texas Republicans still amazes the cynical PDiddie at Brains and Eggs.

WhosPlayin had video of parents handing all kinds of hell to Lewisville ISD board and administration over banning the Obama pep talk. Perhaps the bigger story though is that like many other school districts in the state, the financial situation looks bleak for the coming year.

Over at TexascKaos, Bulldog reminds us that health care , like national defense is NOT about profit, but about the security of the American people. She tells her story and does it well in Health Care Rambling.

I see you are promoting Jon Coby's video clip of the Pete Olson townhall meeting. Jon "Coby" is desperately seeking the media attention he got the last go 'round, telling more and more lies. Hate to break it to you, but I doubt Keith Olbermann will bite this time after he was forced to publicly retract the story the last time when the lies of Jon Coby were uncovered.

There were several cameras in the audience that did not feature Jon Coby's running commentary where he continues to make up his own version of the story. Congressman Olson handled the opposition quite tactfully. Police did have to intervene when "Coby" and comrades became quite disruptive and became threatening to other attendees.

Stop propagating the lies. Jon Coby has been exposed for the liar that he is and has lost all credibility with the media he so desperately seeks the attention of.
