This week’s show

This was a very busy week. It was a very political week. I spent over five hours at the University of Houston where a group of congresspersons were purported to discuss coming up with a legal redistricting map in Texas with input and concerns from the community. As one of the speakers said, it was a sham firstly because it was held on a hard to access site where parking had to be paid for. Secondly it was held on a week day during working hours for most. Gerrymandering in Texas has been so efficient that the Texas delegation no longer represents the population, neither culturally or philosophically.

President Obama seemingly caved under the pressure from war hawks that are looking for the next war to keep the military industrial complex flushed in profits and influence. It seems we are about to progressive get more involved in Syria. We continue to invest in destruction instead of human capital and infrastructure capital, things of real value that help the many as opposed to the few.

Texas Governor Rick Perry vetoed a bill meticulously crafted by Representative Senfronia Thompson to ensure fair wages for women in Texas. This bill had bipartisan support but Lord Perry killed it.

Thee are national implications to these and many stories below.

Please call in and add to the discourse civilly.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
