Dave, Please read the PDF. You will see that most of the proposals were to transfer monies from on department to another. There are a few bond issues that are needed. Beck is a fool! https://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/forms/2019-explanatory-statements.pdf

Dave Look at the propositions closely. Beck needs to examine how they work. my favorite is this one STATE OF TEXAS PROPOSITION 10: THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO ALLOW THE TRANSFER OF A LAW ENFORCEMENT ANIMAL TO A QUALIFIED CARETAKER IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. Yes -- 93.86% -- 992,929 No -- 6.14% -- 64,940

HA! Texas voters went to the polls on Tuesday to decide the fate of 10 constitutional amendments. The one receiving the most publicity was Proposition 4, which would ban the implementation of a statewide income tax. The official text of the proposition is: "THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT PROHIBITING THE IMPOSITION OF AN INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX, INCLUDING A TAX ON AN INDIVIDUALS SHARE OF PARTNERSHIP AND UNINCORPORATED ASSOCIATION INCOME." With 89% of counties reporting across the state on Tuesday nigh (9:49pm), 77.22% of Texas voters, voted for Prop. 4. https://kfyo.com/texas-voters-approve-constitutional-amendment-banning-state-income-tax/?trackback=twitter_mobile

Here is the site for KY results tonight. Polls close at 6:00pm but KY is split by time zones so I wouldn't look for numbers until 7:00 pm EST. https://results.enr.clarityelections.com/KY/97213/web/#/summary

Just for fun, here is whats happening at my Alma mater. With a name like Transylvania University what do you expect. One of the fun things is a raffle for students to spend the night in the crypt of Constantine Rafinesque (Google him)The building is Old Morrison which houses the crypt. It was built in the 1830's, and is featured on the Lexington, KY city seal.

How about Greg Abbott for 2024? When he was Texas AG he was asked what his job entails, Abbott says: "I go into the office in the morning, I sue Barack Obama, and then I go home." Also if you criticize him we can call you a bigot against the disabled. That would be a lot of fun.

Copied over from last thread. I know there are not a lot of Astros fans on this board but I found this article uplifting.. Watch MLB Superstar Altuve Give All the Glory to God After Walk-Off HR Sends Team to the World Series https://www.westernjournal.com/watch-mlb-superstar-altuve-give-glory-god-walk-off-hr-sends-team-world-series/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=westernjournalism&utm_content=2019-10-20&utm_campaign=pushtraffic By the way, many years ago when we lived in CT. my dad's company had box seats at Yankee Stadium and I cheered for the likes of Mantle and Maris. Changed when I moved to Houston, but I believe in the jink of talking about upcoming games so I'll just be quiet. :)
