John Cornyn is never seen anywhere but big cities, Dallas, Houston, Austin. He comes to Fort Hood when there is a crisis, but in all these years he has been a senator, he hasn’t been to anything I have attended. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Ted Cruz are everywhere. When I have contacted both, only Cruz responds with something other than an automated response. Does that answer your question?

Ted Cruz has a HUGE state to cover. Have you ever tried to get to different parts of Texas on commercial airlines? Almost impossible. We drive as far as Schumer flies just to get to the airport! No waste is acceptable, but situations are different.
So why don't both Texas senators have similar bills for chartered flights? Is the other one not doing his job?
I agree. Most easterners and Californians think of travel as time only. In a state like Nebraska, a person has to think of time and distance. To cross Nebraska by car takes about 5 hours on I-80. If you are going really rural time and distance get longer and services are few.
I once had a colleague from New Jersey who had to travel to Broken Bow, NE on business. When she left she called my to ask where the nearest gas station was. Once I found out where she was, I told her it was about 100 miles to the next gas station. I told her to turn around and hope she could make it back to Broken Bow.

That is definitely what happened to Austin starting with the IBM movement into the state. The Texas “Silicon Valley” is infected with liberalism. God help us if more come. We already suffer from the illegal immigration that is fed by that liberalism. I have lived all over the country, but choose to live in Texas because my Christian values are still honored there. How long will that last?
It could all be fixed in one week. Just one week could fix all immigration problems with one idea. "Illegal immigrants... "WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE" for $25.00. Give them a week's notice this will occur and you couldn't even get on a southbound hiway.

Would you please leave Texas alone and reform your own liberal world? We are not interested in what you think. Perry reflects most of what Texans believe and reflects what I believe. He wants to give back excess taxes, wants to secure our border, wants to have a right to work state where people actually work not mooch off the public, and wants to stop Planned Parenthood from aborting defenseless babies. All of those items, you are against. Don’t come to Texas or criticize us.
