...clearly states that a BILL was passed on. It did not state that a bill was signed into law.

Twisting, twisting, twisting the night away.

It really is creepy how obsessed you still are with me Lou, errrr Xavier.

Oh I think Lou is here, but I'm not him. The Administrators can tell by IP addresses and I'm sure, other means as well. Back a long time ago they saw that my wife and I were using the same IP address and investigated. Political finally drove her away from TOTV completely. I really appreciated that the Administrators (Tony and Talk Host) were keeping an eye on things. They do a good job.

Richie, look at it this way, today hasn't been a complete waste of time for you. Today you learned the difference between a bill and a law and you learned that I'm not Lou. Lou had lots of good qualities. I'd take him for a neighbor any day of the week. He let a bully or two or three get to him. You've got to know what you are dealing with and then it's easy to adapt. Peace brother.

CBS is not reporting the story with much credence from what you're telling me. I always say "I don't believe the liberal media"; and here I am repeating something they reported. Serves me right if you are right.
Hi Richie,
That's not what I was trying to tell you. My point was that the CBS report to which you linked states that the Texas House passed the bill. If the Texas Senate had also already passed the bill, then the CBS report would have stated that the Texas Legislature passed the bill.

Your statement that the article "says nothing about going through further steps to become final law," is incorrect. Since the article says it only passed the Texas House, then based on the CBS article, it would still have to go through the Texas Senate and be signed by the Texas governor before it could become a law.

I didn't post this to pick on you, but to clarify a factual mistake. I would much rather that an error I make be corrected than to have other people rely on my mistaken information-- and for me to continue to be mistaken.

Thanks P. I wasn't ticked that you sent me the information. I guess I did misinterpret the news article. But, why did the article then go straight to pointing out the possible federal laws that would be affected. It's still a poorly written article, in my opinion.

All in all, I'm still glad the Texas House passed this and there's a good chance this bill will proceed anyway. I expect this won't be the last state to do this.

Xavier, I'll support your idea if your support mine - Texas should ban all exports of natural gas. This is within the rights of the state. No natural gas going out of Texas would increase the safety of the nation from natural gas explosions. It's time to realize that the Constitution does not make the Presidency a Monarchy.

Actually, if Texas could afford to disallow it's natural gas to leave the state, I could live with that. In fact I'm sure that would probably benefit me and a very large portion of the United States nicely. If you are not familiar with Marcellus Shale and the Natural Gas being pulled out of the ground in northeast as we speak here is a link that tells you a little bit about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcellus_Formation

I happen to control a goodly portion of land in that area. So you see, I can support your idea and would guess that you will now support my idea.

I'm not really sure of where your last sentence comes in:

"It's time to realize that the Constitution does not make the Presidency a Monarchy."

Maybe you can explain the relevancy.

I obsess on the truth. You just happen to be the biggest offender and fabricator - otherwise I certainly wouldn't waste my time. Actually, I know it's still of waste of time because everyone has your number. The other misguided souls don't really count because they are in their own little lock-step issues. There are only one or two of them anyway. This is a thinking persons' world. Relics will eventually fade into oblivion.

Now you ARE just a bald faced liar. Fabricator? I dare you to show ONE example of me fabricating anything. When you don't agree with me that doesn't make it a lie, which is what fabricator means in case you're too ignorant to know. I've never lied in this forum, ever and I challenge you to dispute that.

Put up or shut up. One lie I've posted, just one. If not, have the courage to apologize for your insult.

Lock step issues? You're describing yourself. Lock step Progressive Democrat defender of the Democrat agenda come hell or high water. Your throw a lot of rocks for someone living in a glass house.

I dislike getting in a personal discussion with someone who seems as childish as you, but you leave me little option. Your constant obsessive personal attacks on me are getting wearisome.

I know you can't stick to the issues, because you would lose the argument, and you in your small mind think you score points by attacking me instead.
There's only 2 or 3 posters who giggle in the back of the classroom with you as you do this. Everyone has my number? You're really the only one with this creepy obsession.

Now I know I've given you much childish pleasure with this post, but I've gotten it off my chest. Now how about growing up?

Richie, pretty much every time you post something that you got from Fox Noise or other rightie blogs you're promoting fabrication.

Dale, Can you post specific links that support your wild claim that Fox News reports are fabrications?

Are you including yourself as a "serious poster"?

No, I am not kidding! You have made an unfounded assertion and I am asking you to back it up. Can you do it?
