This remarkable upset victory in the reddest of red states send a message to the GOP: American women WILL NOT GIVE UP THE RIGHTS THAT THEY FOUGHT SO HARD FOR IN THE LAST CENTURY. Second, the GOP is desperate for a policy to offer the American people. They have none that offer anything but elevating the rich at the cost of everyone else, and that has become transparent to everyone, and since it is a policy based on descrimination and hatred, it has gone as far as it can go. There are no pools of people so steeped in hatred and enjoy fear tactics to further their goals to be tapped. The last election was proof of that. Mitt Romney, who represented everything the Founding Fathers ancestors left Europe to escape (if you do not know the details of the Mormons, their mission, and the specifics of how Romney made his billion dollars, you have some important homework to do), was defeated by Obama, who represents the opposite qualities---everything America has traditionlly stood for, was defeated. Even the medias desperate efforts to slant the American peoples view towards Romney, and shamefully failing to reveal the history, structure (fascist) of the Mormon church, the Mission of the Mormon Church (to take over the government of the United States, despense with the Constitution and conert the nation into a Mormon theocracy) and the details of how Romney made his billion dollar fortune.
All major media outlets are owned and controlled by the super rich, like Rupert Murdock, a ruthless man. The now lead us by the nose as to what they deam is news and what it not. In a nation addicted to television in a manner consistent with Marshall McCluhan's accurate profecy, this gives the mainstream media tremendous control over how we think and what we thing about. And in spite of this "1984" like power, Obama still won. The people could see through the pale cast over him by the media, and see his haminity and his didication to helping the common man. On the other hand, the mass of voters for Romney were not voting for him, but against Obama, based on their hatred of having a mixed race president. Science has proven without a doubt that there is no basis for racism. Our entire species came from East Africa, so we are all Africans. Racism is just another human invention to try ro raise one own sense of inferiority by pushing someone else's down.
The recent events, not just in Texas, but in other areas of the country have demonstrated that the GOP is deeply divided, has no leadership (as exemplified by Rick Perry, a Replican candidate for President,
and are desperate. They are resorting to what they do best: the politics of fear and hatred, and it is not only failing, but it is being crushed. Todays events in Texas, was not just an unexpected loss on a controversial issue, it was a humiliating loss in a state that they arrogantly thought they had complete control over. One of the common characteristics of Sociopaths, who make up the majority of what is left of the GOP leadership, is that they underestimate the capabilities of the opposition. That is what happened today in the State Capitol of Texas. Such events give a powerful boost to Texans that the GOP can be defeated, and greatly weakens the confidence of the arrogant leadership.
In summary we have reached a turning point is the crisis of the American people's deepest division since the Civil War. The underdogs, the defenders of the Consitution, are gaining the upper hand over those who would destroy this country and transform it into something that would benefit a few.
This is real NEWS.

The reason for this revision is due to evidence that "the rats are beginning to jump off of the sinking ship". This new information should add a substantial boost to the credibility of my basic argument.
First, Gov. Perry's budget proposal calling for tax cuts was defeated by a resounding 4:1 margin. Hardly what one would expect from four term Governor who has held an iron handed grip on Texas State policy for well over a decade. As of today, he has set himself up for a fall of political grace unprecedented in the history of this county.
The Texas Tribune published the following article, making it clear that he is spreading his pathological lying to the rest of the county. This sets him up for looking like a greater fool that he demonstrated in the live broadcast by FOX of the debate with Mitt Romney when he was in the running for the GOP candidate for President. Romney, hardly a formidable opponent as he demonstrated repeatedly when he became the GOP candidate, cannot think on his feet, won the "debate" when during the second hour Perry became so rattled he could not complete a single sentence for the entire hour. The FOX announcers had to resort to making fun of him for the painful or hilarious (depending on whether you were a Perry supporter or not) the entire second hour, in order to preserve some journalistic integrity. That second hour instantly removed Perry from consideration, as Obama never gets rattled even under the greatest pressure. This quality drives the GOP nuts, and they hate him even more because he is so competent.
The bald face lies as reported in the following article include his omission of the extreme risk of drought in at least half of the state. This failure of omission was pointed out by the Mayor of Chicago in the article. Also his bragging about "a fair legal system" is laughable. The State of Texas does not have a department of Justice, but a Department of Punishment. Unless you are wealthy, if you are charged with a crime you will go to prison. Texas not only has the highest incarceration rate in the United States, but it is the highest of any country in the world. Higher than countries with totally corrupt despots with secret police. The attitude about "justice" can be summed up in the following action by the District Attorney for Travis county. There are 30 men who have been in prison for 10 to 30 years after being convicted for sexual assault. Recent more sophisticated DNA analysis proved without a shadow of doubt that none of the 30 men were the perps. When the DA was asked why these men were still in jail given the conclusive evidence that were innocent, the DA replied: "We don't have the money to retry them." Retry them??? Since there is no moral or ethical defense to this position, the 30 men, all black, should just be released from prison with an apology from the State and a check for all the lost wages incurred while falsely imprisoned. In Texas you are guilty until proven innocent. The majority of these convictions were made after it was well established by multiple studies that victims of assault are totally unreliable witnesses due to the plasticity of human memory. During the two year wait for the trail each time the victim thinks of the horror of the event, the memories change. It is very much like a computer hard drive. Each time you use an application, when it is rewritten back to the hard drive a few errors are made, until over time the application stops working properly, and has to have a "clean"copy reinstalled. Study after study showed that victims of assault could do no better than random chance in identifying the perp. This information was withheld from the juries and most of the convictions were made solely on the basis of the victim's testimony identifying the perp. One man, a model citizen with a promising career, had collaborative witnesses by other upstanding citizens that he was not even in the State at the time of the alleged assault. He was convicted solely on the basis of the victim's testimony. He remains in prison. Several of the 30 falsely imprisoned have had the victims publicly recant their testimony, stating that their identification of the perp was an error. Summary, you cannot prove your innocence in this State, especially if you are black.
This high profile series of lies about coming to Texas is going to set up Perry for a huge fall, when Travis County and the City of Austin run out of water in the near future. Anarchy will ensue, many lives will be lost, and the showpiece city of Texas will destroyed, as the city will be abandoned by at least 80% of the population. Who wants to live in place with no electrical power and no water? Not only will Perry look like the biggest fool and liar in the country, but trickle down effect of the destruction of Austin, could bankrupt the state as people in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston begin to question the safety of their water supply, and begin to join the Austinites in a mass migration out of the State and high tech corporations reconsider their plans to continue to place more operations in this drought plagued state.
Today the Austin American-Statesman printed the following article on the front page:
The significance of this is that this is the break in the newspapers loyal parroting of Perry's position on the drought: "The drought represents no threat to the State of Texas." A year ago, around the time Neal Wilkins, then the chairman of the Texas Water Commission was fired by Perry for doing his job. His job, as a highly regarded national expert on land management, recommended "drastic cutbacks in our use of water and power". This happened on June 29, 2012, when the combined water in our two reservoirs hit a predetermined "trigger point, which was the low of the 1951 drought. This event was not even reported by the AA-S. Instead, they published a steady stream of fabricated evidence that the drought was getting better. That overt support stopped early in the summer when conditions kept worsening as reported by the scientists at the NCRA, and reported by meteorologist Bob Rose on the States official web site. After Wilkins dismissal, Perry started falsifying the published numbers on the water levels of the two reservoirs. The falsification became painfully obvious by the fall when the posted numbers showed no decline, when inflows were reported as negligible. The reserves when when Wilkins was fired were almost exactly our average annual usage. And a full year later with negligible inflows, the State website reports the combined lake levels as 789,000 acre feet; slightly lower than a year ago, but based on the well documented inflows, still preposterously high. It is hard for me to stomach that this town teeming with PhD scientists, has had no one other than myself challenge these numbers.
First is an article by John Nielson-Gammon of the Houston Chronicle called "Climactic Abyss" published on Sept. 28, 2012.
Second are the editorials by the State's NCRA's (North Colorado River Authority) Meterologist Bob Rose, who somehow was overlooked in the purging of the knowledgeable former Commission. This former Commission was chaired by Neal Wilkins,PhD. He did his job on July 29, 2012 by stating that the combined reservoir total equaled the predetermined trigger point of the low of the 1951 drought, and recommended immediate major cutbacks in our use of water and electrical power. Since such a move would threaten the city's rampant growth, Gov. Perry immediately fired Wilkins and a month later replaced the entire Commission with "yes men" from the finacial and real estate development sectors. Somehow, Rose escaped the purge, perhaps because he only wrote his column 3 times a week. But, as a scientist he was a strong ally of Wilkins, and has continued to post warnings without ever using buzz words like "running out of water", "running dry", or saying anything that sounds like a prediction. Since Wilkins left, Rose has written a stream of weather reports about how various weather patterns are not putting water into our reservoirs.
On Bob Rose's report of May 13, 2013 he said the following:
"Drought becoming more intense as weather offers little relief.
Because of the extremely dry weather, very little water has flowed into the Highland Lakes so far this year and the prolonged drought gripping the region is growing stronger.
There have been a few violent storms in 2013, but they have not produced much water for lakes Travis and Buchanan, the lower Colorado River basin's water reservoirs. The lakes are less than 40% full. Weather forecasts call for near-to-slightly below-normal rainfall across Texas through August; but, there is not expected to be enough rain to break the drought.
Because of the prolonged drought, the amount of water flowing into the lakes, called inflows, has been historically low over the past two years. Inflows in 2011 were the lowest in history, at about 10 percent of average, and inflows in 2012 were the fifth lowest in history, at about 32% of average."
Virtually every column rose has written since Wilkins left has had a similar tone: the weather conditions are not very beneficial for our reservoirs; and , the pattern does not look like it will change. He does not challenge Perry's falsified reservoirs numbers, but is very clear from his steady stream of negative comments based on real facts and meticulous research. To a scientist it would be very clear that his statements are based on excellent research. But this is easy to miss if you have no insight into the political situation. A strict scientist would consider it an ethically inexcusable act not to challenge Perry's numbers, because the person who reads just one of his columns, would conclude that Rose doesn't make sense since it is natural to think HE is publishing the stats. Without knowledge that Perry is fabricating these numbers, it is easy to dismiss Rose as a quack. But he has performed a great service by staying on and telling as much of the truth as he can. It must be agonizing for him to keep working under these conditions: to be associated with bold face lies. We owe him a great debt to have been doing outstanding Meteorological work under these conditions. Once I caught on to the game, Rose has supported every one of my suspicions that the situation is much more dire than the state's web site would lead us to believe.
Please, don't take my word for any of this, do your own research. It will not take much time since I have outlined the path of deception for you. Using the current data to calculate the amount of water that should be in each reservoir according to the published date, then go look at the two reservoirs and see if you think the data is accurate.
The following data was accurate when I originally wrote this article March 20, 2013. I have left it here for the reader to compare to the current data as posted on the LCRA website : http://www.lcra.org/water/supply/index.html.
One of our two reservoirs, Lake Travis, has been observed by lake front property owners to be a “muddy trickle of the Colorado River”. They have not made any noise about this because they are trying to sell their homes. However, this is solid proof that the statistics on the official NCRA (North Colorado River Authority) web site are fraudulent and intentionally deceptive. Here is today's report:
COMBINED VOLUME OF LAKES BUCHANAN AND TRAVIS
0.817 million acre-feet
Current levels as of May 23, 2013
Since the amount in Lake Travis is known to be zero, the entire 817,380 acre-feet must be in Buchanan. How much water is really in Lake Buchanan is a guessing game. So, let’s reverse engineer this problem.
There is also no historical precedent : no prosperous city of this size has suddenly plunged into anarchy in the history of our our species. This "it can't happen" and "they wouldn't let Austin die" attitude, prevents the people, even smart and well educated intellectuals (which this city has a wealth of---Austin probably has the highest PhD per capita of any city in the country---and most of them are scientists who power the wealth of high tech industries).
The military from nearby Fort Hood will arrive after the most critical period for theft, rioting and disruptive violence. The local police will be totally overwhelmed just with the traffic situation alone. Without signal lights, every major intersection will be a source of traffic clogging, fender benders, and worse as panicked people try to find food, water and gasoline. Every sociopath in the county will seize this opportunity as an excuse to raise hell and not get caught. One can only image what kinds of things such people will do. So, every household needs to be ready to defend themselves. The majority are not, in spite of the national belief that everyone in Texas owns several guns. This is true of native rural Texans, but not for the intellectually elite who moved here from all over the country and the world for these high tech jobs.
Below is additional evidence of the total failure of the government to properly manage this water crisis. By law, the Stage 3 water conservation calls for the following:

Rush Limbaugh, the results are the same. The heroin like addictive behavior and the lose of important social brain functions still occur. McCluhan died in 1980, and there is good reason to believe he would be shocked to learn that television was the Pandora's Box that caused the unraveling of every one of America's social institutions, including Government, in a single generation.
This is a disgusting article. Calling Global Climate change "junk science" sounds like something coming out of the mouth of Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas. Perry, during his 13 years as Governor has disassembled all human services in the State. For example he has cut the funding for mental health care every year, even in years when the State had an excess of funds. In the mid 90's the State's Mental health care system was considered a model for the country in its progressive and well funded Mental Health care system. I know the results of the funding cuts, because I worked as a physician providing general medical care to the mentally ill at the largest of the State's Mental hospitals, the North Texas State Hospital (which also is responsible for the administration of the States Forensic unit in Vernon), from 2002 to 2010. Our care declined steadily due to the constant budget cuts, but mostly because the State's once extensive outpatient clinics which helped discharged patients reintegrate into the community, provided access to their necessary medications, and had a psychiatrist available to see them on a regular basis and monitor their progress. By 2009, those clinics were gone, and the hospital morale took a nose dive, because we started seeing the same patients return again and again a few weeks after discharge, because without the outpatient clinics, the quickly relapsed because they could not get their medication. We called this group, mostly schizophrenics, "frequent fliers".
Perry, has openly stated publicly and frequently that he does not believe in: global warming (proven without a shadow of a doubt by hard nosed scientists), Global Climate Change (which has also been proven by accurate maps of the global climate of the planet in the past---whether are not we are now in a period of global climate change cannot be said simply cannot be determined with certainty because the period of unusually bad weather, only 10 years, is too short to say with certainty that we are in the beginning of a long term change. What do the people that call Global Climate Change "junk science" think the" ice ages" were??? That phenomena was well known in the '50's, because I was taught about it in school. I was born in 1948. The ice ages were simply one aspect of Global Climate Change that we now know about to a vastly greater scope and our knowledge covers a vastly greater period of time. For example we now know that the Ice Ages were just one aspect of even greater and broader climate change patterns. For example there were periods of global drought and global warming. The interaction of an almost unimaginable number of factors contributed to these drastic changes that occurred of hundreds of thousands of years, or even million year cycles. Only the modern super computer, the state of the art Cray computers, made it possible to calculate probable events from the massive amount of data collected by scientists of many disciplines all over the world over the past couple of centuries. That we have recently been able to make sense of all this data, is a scientific achievement on a par with the success of the Human Genome Project. The writer of this junk jounalism should never be allowed to publish again. But, it is now common knowledge, that super rich tyrants like Rupert Murdoch, do not want "the public" to know the truth about anything, so writers of this sensational and unsupported by any evidence is just what they want. It is a continuation of last year's election, when Mitt Romney, a member of the "super rich" club and is every bit as much of a scoundrel as Murdock, was able to rattle off a continuous series of lies about Obama, nary a one support with any facts or evidence---he didn't even bother to offer it, he just went on to the next lie. The media never called him on any of false accusations, just like there was never any investigation into his off shore bank accounts which exist for only one reason: to hid illegal money from the IRS or the FBI (arms and drug trading), or his "blood oath" committment to the Mormon Mission, which is to take over the Government of the US, dispense with the constitution, convert the nation to a Mormon theocracy, and then use the US Military to conquer the rest of the world because like so many delusional sociopaths in history, Romney believes the Mormon's are God's "chosen people" to take over a sinful world and convert them to the only "true religion". History has demonstrated over and over when you hear the words "chosen people", bloodshed will follow and after a few conquests, the rest of the world units to crush the "chosen people". We almost had our own Hitler, and a civil war would have erupted. For the first time in my life I realized that the NRA and the second amendment were correct. The populous needs to be as well armed as the military in case such a maniacal leader ever came into power. The wisdom of the Founding Fathers became even more astonishing. I could continue for another 1000 pages, but I think I have made my point about this "junk" journalism. But one more thing, the Governor of Texas belief that the drought "represents no threat" to the State Capitol, that his non-management of our water recourses is going to soon, a matter of weeks run completely out of water, anarchy will ensue, thousands of deaths will result and the magnificent city of Austin Texas will be destroyed as 80%+ of the population will leave. Who wants to live in a "city" without power and water???
