What has been collected so far for the DFW list. the SanAn/Laredo/RGV list and Lackland lists are going.

We have taken up the cause of the refugee humanitarian crisis along the border. Meet Operation Matthew 25. We are using the bible verse as inspiration but the event founder is in fact an atheist so this is not strictly a christian event. We have people of all faiths, and no faith, participating.

I've been hard at work creating these lately. I have 13 for Wendy Davis, 13 for Leticia Van de Putte and 10 for David Alameel.
These were the result of a suggestion in the politically active facebook group for liberals I admin in, What Happens in Texas, the idea was a group effort, as is the information they contain. However, the legwork of creating them is mine. They are for sharing, please share as you see fit if you are so inclined. Actual graphics below the fold.  If anyone wants them, I will share the Leticia Van de Putte and David Alameel sets as well so please let me know

A revolution has begun

by littlefire

Down here in Texas, we usually get written off as a hopelessly red state not worth fighting for. Liberals are frequently told to just give up and leave the state as its a lost cause. I am not the first to write it and I wont be the last, but I want to share my story about the citizen's filibuster and the beginnings of a revolution in Texas as I saw them this week

NRA In Houston

by littlefire

So, as I am sure everyone is aware, the NRA held its annual meeting in Houston this weekend. I was down at the convention center (well mostly we were across the street but at one point we did end up in front of the center) yesterday for the protest. I thought I'd share my photos and experiences with the community.

Advice please

by littlefire

Backstory: My son is turning 4 at the end of this month. We knew there was a problem at age 2 1/2 when he had only 15 words. We knew there was something more at 3 when he wouldn't eat food unless I put it in the freezer so it was cold, and would have meltdowns where he was inconsolable for extended periods of time and had to be held to keep him from hurting himself. We are now trying to get him approved for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) after a diagnosis of high functioning autism in August of this year.

Autism, God and the CT Shooting.

by littlefire

Allow me to preface this by saying two things. 1. I am a Christian (yes there is a "Christian left" , shocking I know ;) ) and 2. I have a son diagnosed with autism.

I have been in and out of tears since Friday, I struggled with every ounce of my being not to leave work early to go and snatch my 7 year old daughter from school and my 4 year old son from the sitter, take them home and never let them out of my sight again. Every part of my heart as a mother, as a human, screams as I cannot help but imagine the extreme pain and grief being faced by 20 families who have 6 & 7 year old children who went to school Friday just like my own child did, only their child never came home, and is not currently asking them daily how many days left til Christmas.

Adding to that however, is the two fold pain being wrought by CNN and certain people in my life regarding God.. and autism.
