The Texas Observer

In “Big Trouble in Little Cambodia,” Michael Hardy reports from the unincorporated community of Rosharon, about 45 minutes outside Houston. Nearly every home there suffered severe flooding during Hurricane Harvey, and many were total losses. Residents, many of whom survived the Khmer Rouge genocide before resettling in Texas, were desperate for help. That’s when a coalition of Neo-Confederate and white supremacist groups moved in.

Shame on you.. Try printing the truth!

Pretty good article, actually. Thanks for not totally demonizing Patriots/Neo-Confederates. (Y)

I wonder how many will vote.

What a bizarre tale

Congrats to the athletes and the The University of Texas for their high standards.

Way to go, Shay!

Honor #NationalDrugFactsWeek by arming yourself with information. Between 3-4% of 12th graders misuse opioids nationally. Let's change that.

The Texas Observer

After reports surfaced in November that women have for years endured sexual harassment in the Texas Capitol, leaders in the House promised, among other actions, to provide sexual harassment training to legislators and their staff. We’ve got the training, and it’s a 40-minute video that seems unlikely to change the toxic atmosphere at the statehouse any time soon.

The video includes at least one perhaps tone-deaf attempt at humor: A clip from the hit NBC television show The Office.

Vote in all women!

I worked at a large firm in Texas which had mandatory sexual harassment training. One man, a partner and state senator, made lewd disgusting comments during the entire training and saw the entire thing as a joke. I am just waiting for him to make a public comment.

So, the people that make laws, need to be trained on this? Way to go voters.

If this joke is the Texas Legislature’s answer to harassment; it a poor joke and unworthy of Texas!!!!

Run Mary Ann!

Vote the bastards out!

And still the best President in modern history

I only pressed the “ha-ha” icon because there isn’t a “end of humanity” choice.

...also left out: decency, compassion, honesty, dignity, maturity, responsibility, modesty, humility...the list goes on and on.

The Bullshit that spews from this site and more like it... Is whats wrong with America...... They should have been part of fake news awards... Maybe next years... Keep up the propaganda and false messages...

The republicans have always had no shame or dignity, Trump gave them their shameless criminal leader.

Please explain the above comments.

Good to see Ben again!

Another zero for Sargent

Sad but true
