My friend, Michael Strickland, a conservative citizen journalist here in Oregon whose videos can be seen at Laughing at Liberals and whose writing can be seen at Gateway Pundit, captured some great testimony yesterday in Salem.

The State House of Representatives was debating Senate Bill 941, which in summary:

Outlaws private transfers of personal property, expands gun registry and police gun owner list, requires gun owners to ask permission from Oregon State Police before giving guns to others, forces every transfer to be subject to failed “background check” system.

By Rosealee Hoffman, Parker County Daily Post, ALEDO (PCDP) 4/22/15 –

A new group of Parker County citizens has formed to promote the Republican platform and educate citizens about political involvement. Parker County Conservatives was conceived about a year ago and has a steering board of seven members, including Darrel and LeAnn Russell.

“There’s so many divides in the Republican party, so much animosity,” said Darrel Russell. “But Texas has a two party system. We need to find a way to bring Republicans together.”

Friends, I wanted to show you the tax cut plan that Texas House Republicans proposed last week. The plan’s focus is on job creation and overall economic expansion. Please read below, but if you would like more details see HB 31 & HB 32.

➢ The House tax cut plan provides the broadest benefits to taxpayers, delivering tax relief to big businesses and small business, homeowners and renters, and every single Texan across the state.

Legislative Update – April 10th

There are only 50 days left in the 84th Legislative Session! It isn’t uncommon to see committees meet until well past midnight and debate on the House floor is getting longer. The Legislature is working hard and I know at the conclusion of the session you will be proud of the conservative victories achieved.

– Despite a rocky start — and multiple efforts by Tea Party-backed lawmakers to derail it — key early education legislation endorsed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott overwhelmingly passed the Texas House Wednesday.

An almost five-hour debate ended with a fierce denunciation of conservative interest groups’ influence on policymaking from the bill’s author, state Rep. Dan Huberty, R-Houston.

Treason and Corruption

At a so-called Easter “prayer breakfast”, President Obama, as is his wont, took another swipe at Christians:

On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that, as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.

Each to his own. I get concerned that, as the President was lecturing those Christians less perfect than him, some 150 students were slaughtered at Garissa University in Kenya for no other reason than that they were Christian. Had I been at that prayer breakfast, I would have walked out in protest.

Crash Position

Crash Position

obama, obama jokes, political, humor, cartoon, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, germanwings, crash, lubitz, locked out

The pilot was locked out of the cockpit.

That phrase finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. After which Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8 minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn’t be stopped because anyone who could change the jet’s disastrous course was locked out.

It’s hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard – but not impossible.

Legislative Update – April 3, 2015

The most critical item the Legislature must pass each session is the State’s budget. I’m proud to report to you that the House passed our proposed budget for 2016-17 earlier this week. In addition, we had a full week of committee meetings and constituent visits before the Easter weekend.

House Budget

After nearly 18 hours of debate (we finished at 5:40am!) the House passed our proposed budget for 2016-17 by a vote of 141-5. This vote total represents great consensus for such an important item. I believe that the budget we are sending over to the Senate is conservative while still meeting the core needs of our state.

I’m especially pleased that border security is being funded at historic levels, funding for public education is increased by $3 billion, and that this budget keeps us under the spending cap.

Texas bill to bar gun status in medical records

From ParkerCailyPost.com, By David Warren, April 2, 2015 –

Dr. John Porter examines Connor Russell, 8, during an office visit Tuesday, March 31, 2015, in Richardson, Texas. The Texas Legislature is considering a bill that would forbid doctors from listing on medical records whether a patient is a gun owner. The measure is meant to prevent government agencies from accessing the information. Some pediatric doctors say the law could prevent them from ascertaining the health or environmental dangers a child may face, and criticize a government attempt to intrude on the doctor-patient relationship.

DALLAS (AP) 4/2/2015

Texas lawmakers are considering a bill that would keep a person’s gun ownership status from being listed in their medical records, a move health providers worry would be an unnecessary government intrusion that harms their consultations with patients.

The bill would make Texas at least the second state to enact similar restrictions, following a 2011 Florida law on hold because of legal challenges.
