      i cant thank you for news that you didnt create, but i can confirm that maybe there can be some other texas related conditions of concern that can get coordinated with more discipline, and perhaps some emphasis on correcting what is, again, not your responsibility.

    Spread the word vote Yes for no state taxes in Texas. They are trying to trick the public again. Voting no means you support state taxes.

    During a parliamentary debate on April 5, the nine parties that comprise the Danish Parliament (Folketing) discussed China's persecution of Falun Gong and forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience. Members of parliament opposed the unethical practice and agreed to consider human rights issues in future trade and economic cooperation with China.

    Impressive video but it's important to note that Houston is in a bowl. It's prone to flooding.

    • Bryan Southard

      Only issue is that it's rare for this level of catastrophic flooding to happen 2 years back to back, the floodings are usually pretty well spaced out over decades and don't normally reach these levels. The basins can get pretty nasty in the spring and early fall. But the amount of water damage we are seeing is on par with hurricane Harvey damages
