HISPANIC MINUTEMEN: IT'S ABOUT LAW, NOT RACE
by Trey Garrison    Fri, Apr 28, 2006, 10:32 AM

If you just read the daily's somewhat facile and lopsided coverage of the illegal immigration debate, you'd think that all Hispanics were of a single mind on the issue.

You'd never know there was a big divide between many American-born Latinos and the foreign-born newcomers who demand amnesty. The Houston Chronicle takes note.

by Trey Garrison    Fri, Apr 28, 2006, 10:26 AM

So there's the downside of the Internet in that it makes it easier for creepy perverts to prey on underage kids.

Then there's the upside in that it makes it easier for cops to prey on creepy perverts.

DEMOCRATS CALL FOR 90-DAY GAS TAX HOLIDAY
by Scott Bennett    Fri, Apr 28, 2006, 08:41 AM

Texas Democrats are proposing a 90-day "gasoline tax" holiday for the Lone Star State.  The state's share of a gallon of gasoline or diesel fuel is 20-cents.  The savings on a 16-gallon tank of gas would be $3.20.  The loss of state revenue would be approximately $700 million.  Of that amount 75% goes to transportation and 25% to public education.  Democrats would dedicate some portion of the current $8.2 billion surplus to replacing lost revenue.

by Scott Bennett    Fri, Apr 28, 2006, 08:32 AM

In a poll of 1200 Texans the Survey USA poll found that if the election were held today Gov. Rick Perry would win with 39% while his nearest competitor, Independent/Republican Comptroller Carol Strayhorn, would garner 25%.  Democrat Chris Bell is dead last with 15% but independent Kinky Friedman leads him by a statistically insignificant 16%.  The poll was sponsored by KEYE-TV in Austin adn WOAI-TV in San Antonio.  Of the 1200 respondents 985 were registered voters while 579 were "likely voters."  Survey USA noted that Perry led among whites, Hispanics and Republicans while Strayhorn led among moderates.  Bell led among Democrats, liberals and blacks.  Friedman actually led among self-styled independents.

SIESTA FOR CITY'S PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE
by Trey Garrison    Thu, Apr 27, 2006, 07:40 PM

Sure, Dallas has the highest crime rate for a city over 1 million people, but don't expect the Dallas City Council's public safety committee to meet on Monday, May 1 to address it or anything else.

The chair of that committee, Councilman Steve Salazar, famously noted for voting on controversial issues by fleeing the room, has canceled Monday's scheduled meeting.

The reason? To show solidarity with the May 1 national Latino boycott being called to support amnesty for illegal aliens.

TAX RELIEF MAY NOT BE THE 1/3 PROMISED
by Brian Bodine    Thu, Apr 27, 2006, 05:20 PM

There are conflicting signs coming out of Austin regarding how much tax relief property owners can expect to see after the special session. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that legislation being worked through the Texas Legislature may only reduce property taxes to $1.33 per $100 for the first year, instead of the one-third property tax reduction that Perry has repeatedly promised. The Star-Telegram also reports that Lt. Governor David Dewhurst has estimated that House legislation contains enough funding to lower property taxes to around $1.15 per $100.

Some experts are saying that the Texas Tax Reform Commission may have underestimated the cost of lowering property taxes when they created their recommendations.
