Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom

Old-time radio buffs will remember a 30-minute comedy (not sitcom) entitled The Life of Riley.

Its star was Chester A. Riley, a wing-riveter at the fictional California Cunningham Aircraft Plant, who was wont to blunder.

His radio family included wife Peg, daughter Babs, son Junior and neighbor Gillis.

The character listeners possibly favored most of all was Digby "Digger" O’Dell, "the friendly undertaker" who, at the conclusion of conversations with Riley always bid his, "Well, I’d better be shoveling off."

Riley, played by William Bendix, had a favororite line of his own in every show – his trade-mark, "What a revoltin’ development this is," a line many of us in the real America of today could mimic almost daily, as we try to keep up and cope with the comedy of errors (or worse) committed regularly and routinely by those in governmental-elect or employ positions, who should be there to represent (only) us.

We were in our state’s capital and capitol last week, there as a result of email communications with an organization name’o TURF.

That’s Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom.

TURF has been one of those in the forefront of the battle to throw anvils in the path of the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC), thus helping to protect us from the menacing plans of Internationalists and state and national officials who’ve fallen for that particular foolish facet of the Globalist-New World Order progression.

But anvils can only delay certain determined elements who seem intent on furthering their power- structure ends; Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT)appears to be one of those elements.

The TTC, though appearing impotent, will probably resurface by another name at another time, if we’re not very vigilant.

Big bucks from the so-called Stimulus Program have fallen TxDOT’s way and, word is, foreign road construction concerns [read (Spanish) Cintra] is being strongly considered to build toll roads with a big hunk of those "stimulus" funds (Some of those tollroads may end up being a part of a renamed TTC).

TURF considers that little tollroad trick as double taxation, and I agree.


Austin legislators say transportation is the hot item this legislative year and a battle (or war) looms over how those stimulus funds will be spent. TxDOT is not yet home-free on their tollroad plans. Maybe you’d like to weigh-in on this battle.

Of course, Waxahachie and Ellis County citizens should well-remember the Dog and Pony Show put on, not once, but twice at the Waxahachie Civic Center by TxDOT, in trying to sell their gargantuan, land- gobbling plan for constructing the Trans Texas Corridor completely across our state, our county, and more.

Seems no one was impressed, save the usual dose of elected officials (who are supposed to be representing (only) us.

Kinda remindful of the early Superconducting Super Collider ( SSC) promotion days, eh?

Evidently elected officials are easily impressed by gargantuan projects, seeing how they’re apparently taking the hook on getting DART rail, buses, and who knows what else running back and forth from Dallas to our little(in comparison) county.

North Central Texas Council of Government (NCTCOG) is probably more interested in getting Ellis County residents on their DART tax rolls than running rails down here. It’s usually (probably always) about the revenue, isn’t it?

We may end up in the back of one of their buses...or run over by one of them.

I reminded our county judge (Chad Adams), who we ran into in a capitol hall, (that) when and if DART rails and buses do make their way into and out of our county in a big way, people like himself can forget about ever being elected to office down here.

Check out Dallas (or Chicago or DC), if you don’t agree.

Birds of a feather, you know.

It’s not a racist statement, in the words of Dragnet’s Sgt. Joe Friday, it’s just the facts, ma’am.

Let me encourage you to log on to TURF’s website and get up to date on this and other crucial items concerning our county and our state.

If those items don’t yet affect you, they most probably will, in time, so be forewarned.

Getting informed and activated is your choice...in the final analysis. So let’s don’t settle for being a (total) couch potato, as your last words might end up being, "What a revoltin’ development this is."

TURF’s email address is texasturf.org.

May God bless.
