Trans Texas Corridor Renamed, Not Dead

By Kelly Taylor Holtttc

The Texas Department of Transportation announced on January 6 that the Trans Texas Corridor is dead. We don’t think so.

A familiar plant along Texas roadways is the prickly pear cactus. It sports the most beautiful flowers when in bloom, but the most wicked thorns imaginable. In periods of drought, cattle often eat the fruit, seeking water stored there, only to suffer the miseries of having the awful thorns stuck in their lips and tongues, becoming costly to the owners. The plants’ blooms are beautiful, but they are still cactus.

So it goes with the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC), the first leg of a planned superhighway meant to bring Chinese goods into the United States via Mexican ports — bypassing more expensive American ports and workers. (See “Express Route to Poverty” in our October 15, 2007 issue.) On January 6, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Executive Director Amadeo Saenz issued a statement for Governor Rick Perry’s beleaguered transportation project and declared the TTC “dead.”  After facing a very hostile public when the last legislative session failed to kill the project, TxDOT offered a revamped vision for the TTC, including a new proposal entitled Innovative Connectivity in Texas/Vision 2009, outlining updated guidelines for development of the TTC. The document describes the evolution of the original TTC plan, and how the “new” plan will be better — but it simply promises new blooms among the dangerous thorns of the original TTC plan.  READ MORE…

The Great Global Warming Swindle

smiling-sunAl Gore gets it backwards. First the temperature rises due to the activity of the sun, then CO2 increases. CO2 does not drive climate change, the sun does. CO2 is a result of global warming, not the cause of it.

So what is the reason for this scam? You’ve got it – just another scheme concocted by the global elite for control and profit. Look around. We are being bombarded daily with more and more attempts at restricting and controlling our food supply through such bills as HR 875, HR 759, and HR 814, as well as genetically modified suppliers such as Monsanto and Syngenta’s draconian control over seed and farmers’ crops. The control over how much electricity we use will be managed by Smart Grid technology, our whereabouts monitored by GPS and OnStar, fishing and hunting are already controlled by licensing and regulatory limitations on the amount of fish you can catch in a day (one in this area, only during fishing season), water is flouridated, chlorined, metered, and dispensed in plastic bottles if you don’t want the generic stuff from the tap, and if I take a walk, I need to have my state-issued ID with me and present my papers if asked by the local Sheriff’s deputy.

When will it end? When will this grab for complete control using whatever means possible be stopped? I believe it will stop when enough people stand up and take a stand for the truth. Seek the truth and ye shall find it, wherever it may be.
