Required Reading on Houston Proposition 3: Say No to Red Light Cameras

I don’t care about the snake oil Edd Hendee and KSEV are selling these days: Red light cameras do NOT save lives, and they are nothing more than an unconstitutional tax.

But, you don’t have to take my word for it (cue the Levar Burton, Reading Rainbow sound effects).  Read Philip Owens’ ‘Keep Houston Scared is at it again‘ over at Big Jolly Politics and be prepared to be schooled.

Vote NO on Houston Proposition 3. Real conservatives don’t support red light cameras.

Leave Your Obama Shirt at Home, Okay, Tamika?

Maybe its because I have now voted in 14 elections, or I just have common sense, but why is it so hard to get people to understand you cannot wear your campaign swag to your polling place?

Tamika Francis, of Houston, decided to throw a hissy fit on 11 News only to learn (on local TV) she was in the wrong for electioneering, while wearing one of those Obama shirts you see (don’t act like you don’t know!!!)

Texas Election Code 85.036 says Tamika and others need to leave their Obama, Tea Party, and all other political shirts at home, mmmkay?

And if you don’t, in the words of Tamika, “that’s not gonna roll.”
