Brew Beer And Drink




"I have never seen more senators express discontent with their jobs. ... I think the major cause is that, deep down in our hearts, we have been accomplices to doing something terrible and unforgivable to this wonderful country. Deep down in our hearts, we know that we have bankrupted America and that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy. ... We have defrauded our country to get ourselves elected."
-- John C. Danforth
(1936- ) US Senator (MO-R)

"At the foundation of our civil liberties lies the principle that denies to government officials
an exceptional position before the law and which subjects them to the same rules of conduct
that are commands to the citizen." -- Justice Louis D. Brandeis
(1856-1941) US Supreme Court Justice

"There is no distinctly native American criminal class save Congress."
-- Mark Twain
[Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910)


The note I sent to Dan Branch and Royce West.

Texans should have non-partisan redistricting.  Please support redistricting completed using computer models. NO MORE GERRYMANDERED DISTRICTS !!
