Houston is a progressive city. It’s just a city, so it can’t do a lot to distance itself from the backwards right wing extremists that control the state. Maybe in 15 years we can see a state wide change. Sooner or later, those new borns with Mexican heritage will be eligible to vote, not all will vote for progress but the majority will. It is really, a matter of time and getting people to register and vote.

So who's idea was it to have privatized toll roads all throughout the city?

Texas is “unfree” because Marijuana isn’t legal? There’s a lot more to it than whether or not you can get some weed lol

Uh, I’m guessing you’ve never checked out the actual statistics of this city. We’re a blue, progressive one. We may not be Austin, but we aren’t some uneducated, back alley small town suffering from widespread incompetence. While it may have been aggravating, this went on longer than normal because they were following the EPA guidelines.

On a more amusing note, when Ted Cruz ran off to Cancun during the freeze, a mariachi band came to serenade him upon his return. Yes, we know where he lives. He comes here to vote, and that’s about it.
