    For everyone reading this article, let me clear up some falsehoods in the piece. Calvert and Hearne are situated on Hwy 6 while Lott is on Hwy 77. Neither of these roads are near I-45 which runs from Dallas to Houston. Up until a few years Hwy 6 was a 2-lane farm road running from nowhere going to nowhere. Now, it has been developed into a 4-lane divided alternative to I-35 from Houston to Waco. Unfortunately, all of the little wide places in the road such as Hearne and Calvert were not bypassed. Speed limits were increased to match the improved roadways except in these wide spots. Speeds approaching the towns are 70-75 mph with signs posted. Within a few hundred yards of the higher speed signs and when you are approaching the small towns, the speed limit is dropped to 55 mph and a speed trap is set up. If you aren’t paying attention, your first response to the cop on the side of the road is “Oh $hit”! The same happens outside of Lott but the cop sits on the far side of a curve leading into town from the south. Hwy 77 is the best kept secret for getting from Waco to Victoria. If you really want to see a good speed trap, go north out of Calvert on Hwy 6 to Riesel. The speed limit drops from 70 to 45 with the cop sitting on top of the hill out of sight. Another point is that most of these tickets are given to non-residents. The cops are not going to make their friends mad. In conclusion, singling out a few towns when the traps are everywhere is nonsense.

    Crawl back under your rock, you POS. You haven’t got a clue about what you are spewing out.

    I live in Texas also and for a long time. My suggestion would be for you to go back where you came from before one of us True Texans find you and take you out behind the woodshed for your attitude adjustment that gets administered by an axe handle. You are a moron.

    Rubio and Jindal have the same problem – the parents of both were foreign nationals when the children were born thus the children were not NBC. Cruz is a little different but still ineligible. He was born in Canada to a cuban national father and American mother thus he is ineligible. The only truly eligible among the group mentioned is Rand Paul. Until the lunatic politicians, and I include the r’s and d’s both, in Washington DC start adhering to the Constitution ,we will be a rudderless ship trying to stay off of the rocks. We need all tea-party’ers to become the Constitutional Party and clean house.

    marine25 – as usual your lunatic liberal views are ridiculous. go back to your liberal hole in the ground and leave the normal people alone.

    hey honey – pull your head out of your kool-aid bucket and try to find the dozens of house passed bills that have disappeared into Reid’s wastebasket. There are so many ways to cut spending but you somehow think tax loopholes is the difference maker. You are a pathetic typical lunatic liberal. Start thinking on the spending cut side of the ledger rather than raising taxes. How about closing EPA, DOEducation, DOEnergy, TSA, NEA, NIH, DOT, HHS, NHS, DOL or even 40 czars. Find me one dollar that any of these groups add to the federal coffers and I will retract their letters. Can’t – I didn’t think so. OK – how many jobs have they created for the private sector? Ditto – didn’t think so. Go play in your sand box until you grow up.

    smokey – if you had a brain you still would be stupid. The house can’t pick and choose what to pay nor can they only give money to certain causes. the only way to ensure the money flows as needed is to stop loading bills up with pork and have each bill pass on it’s true merit. Case in point as recently as this week is Sandy relief. Do you think $60 bil was really necessary? Guess again. Over $50 bil of the bill was pork and the stupid losers in DC voted for it. HERE’S THE PROBLEM – IT IS NOT THEIR MONEY – THEY DON’T CARE WHERE IT COMES FROM. JUST THAT IT GOES TO THEIR CRONIES. Here is the solution smokey – JUST SAY NO! If they don’t understand, then make it more plain – HELL NO!! Can you say term limits and impeachment and jail time?

    We forced Hutchison out in favor of Ted Cruz and, with this really stupid comment from the other loser, Cornyn’s name now moves to the head of the list. He will get a true conservative primary challenger in 2014 and he will be gone. You can take it to the bank. I applaud other commenters such as AZthunder and shorelineliz whose sentiments are what I have been saying for four years. SHUT THE F$$$ING GOVERNMENT DOWN. obama is a radical ideologue dead set on destroying our country. Until the idiot repubs in the house accept this as a truth and realize that the power of the purse controlled entirely by the house is the only thing currently saving this country from utter destruction at the hands of a raving corrupt lunatic, they will continue to be looked upon as totally irrelevant. This is all they need to say – NO BALANCED BUDGET, NO SPENDING CUTS – WE WILL SHUT IT DOWN COMPLETELY. I am willing to make that sacrifice for my grandkids. Are the Cornyn’s and Boehner’s in Washington DC willing to make the same commitment???
