    Where are all the conservatives who were posting last week that Texas takes care of itself. 8 billion and counting. The big problem I have with the right is their disregard for facts. I want to see one comment "I guess I was wrong".

    What about the debts effect on future generations. This is a drop in the bucket when Florida joins Texas and suddenly wants Federal involvement. The reality is more debt or higher taxes.

    It was nice to see trump deliver a deal, and get a funding extension as well as relief funding. I hope he starts to look at priorities; two (so far) major hurricanes may be more important to deal with than a border wall.

    So much for Senator Ted Cruz's disregard for the federal government. All conservatives are liberals when the worm turns on them.

    Harvey turned right, the Donald and President Kelly turned left.
