PARKER COUNTY —
Every Texan of voting age has a “first-in-a-life-time” opportunity to select a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives this election cycle. Never before have you had the opportunity to be as personally involved in selecting a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. Our country desperately needs your involvement now. If you do nothing, there will be no change.
Americans don’t have to vote for “the lesser of the two evils” or express their protest of “the system” by voting for a “no-chance” third party candidate any longer. Gone are the days when any Texan might be able to justify an “it doesn’t matter whether I vote or not” attitude.
Congressional District 33 includes Decatur, all of Parker County and Arlington. It is one of four new districts created by the last Texas legislature as a result of the 2010 census. I am the leader of the GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) effort to “place 435 citizen representatives on the ballot in 2012, competing for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.” The hope is to have our selected candidate compete in the 2012 primary elections. The biggest problem: the filing deadline to have a name placed on the primary ballot is Jan. 4, 2012. That’s less than three months away!
Please go to www.goooh.com and learn all about GOOOH and its simple plan.
The district 33 candidate selection meeting will be held in Arlington in the Martin High School cafeteria, 4501 Pleasant Ridge Road, on Saturday, Nov. 5. The doors will open at 9 a.m. and the meeting will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.. Martin High School is just off I-20 in south Arlington. Please plan to attend. It just makes sense; the more people who participate in the selection process, the better that selection will be.
The person selected by the GOOOH process will:
1. Have clearly documented their stance on 100+ issues in the candidate questionnaire.
2. Have been chosen by their peers in a rigorous candidate selection process.
3. Be legally obligated to vote according to their candidate questionnaire answers.
4. Truly represent the political views of the people in their district.
5. Not be controlled by or have any allegiance to any party.
6. Not owe any favors to special interest groups.
Wouldn’t you like to be represented by a person like that? Contact email@example.com for more information.

Hope is not a plan
I have noticed that the city is pumping water into Lake Weatherford on a regular basis. It makes me wonder if anyone has done the math comparison on digging a deeper lake, maybe putting in a new one somewhere, or at the very least dredging out the one we have.

Writer takes issue with Roman history lesson
It is more than a bit curious that someone would produce 685 words of erroneous history, cheap sermonizing and unwarranted conclusions all for the purpose of telling the neighbors they’re ungrateful barbarians for being unwilling to swallow the medicine being shoved down their throats by an overbearing government. It is impossible to address all of the errors and falsehoods on display in this screed, but there are some particularly egregious points that need be addressed.

Vote yes to bond
I’m 50 now and ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a social worker. My mom and dad subscribed to National Geographic and I read it from front to back every month. The stories taught me how across the world people needed help in a variety of ways. From that point forward, I knew I wanted to be a helper of society as a whole. So, I got my degree and eventually was a social worker for the Texas Department of Human Services where I served hundreds of people in need.

$131,000 spent on Dragon Robots for preschoolers to teach language skills. Interaction with humans inadequate, evidently. $25,000 spent on virtual mummies. $100 to $150 million paid to deceased Government workers.

Do liberals ever think about what will take place in the future? Environmentalist want to stop the pipeline from Canada.

Since 1995 there have been a group of guys and some women who have played tennis on a regular basis here in town. They sometimes refer to themselves as the (unofficial) PCTA.

I had a dream last night.
There sat the dog-faced John Kerry before the Senate confirmation hearings for his appointment to Secretary of State. After the chair had praised his vast “diplomatic experience” followed by praise for his integrity, honorable service, etc., he finally turns the hearing over to the rest of the panel for questioning – and here is where my dream turned to fantasy. For in my dream the first Republican Senator to ask a question starts like this:
