TPA Roundup – 2/27/2012
The Texas Progressive Alliance is rolling out the red carpet with this week’s blog roundup.
BossKitty at TruthHugger is appalled at the disinformation and outright lies that the oil and gas industry pays advertisers and politicians to use, in order to mislead voters. Voters depend on main stream media to be objective when reporting about drilling and injection consequences. Other voters depend on their religious leaders to put a theological spin on their vote. So, the result is, The Earth is Flat and Fracking is Safe. BossKitty is really alarmed at the infiltration of the US Military by extremists.

BlueBloggin is appalled that Newt Gingrich has gotten away with condemning the US President for not making excuses for the childish vandalism of Holy Books. Gingrich and other GOP candidates are pandering to the most extreme Dominionist element of people who call themselves Christian. GOP Presidential Candidate nut case, encourages Holy War
The long delay in determining the new redistricted parameters affects not only Democrats and Republicans but also the other political parties, who can’t begin to collect petition signatures until after the primary elections.

Bay Area Houston updates the sage on Michael Berry, the right wing talk show hypocrite caught in a gay bar.

At TexasKaos, Libby Shaw warns us that if you “…angry about the rising cost of gas? If you are, whatever you do, don’t ask a Republican politician to tell you the truth about why prices are increasing. For the Party of right wing mullahs has psycho based issues with women’s rights. The pre-historic neanderthal cave dwellers will just lie to you and blame the rising prices on Obama.” Read the rest: GOP Scamming People on High Gas Prices.
