HANG IN THERE TEXAS
Either abuse of authority or lack of jurisdiction, take your pick.
If we don't stop this train, we're all gonna get caught up in the wreck.
Good for them! Its time to just say NO!
Not just NO but Hell NO!!!
This is it. This should be our stand.
EPA and Zerocare: just refuse to listen to them.
All of us can en masse refuse to participate.
Some good news for the good guys.
Libs are afraid to confront Abbott directly because he’s wheelchair-bound and he may still run for higher offices but you know behind closed doors they want to give him the Palin treatment. Go Greg!! Give ‘em hell!
Please ~ping~ me to articles relating to the 10th Amendment/States Rights so I can engage the pinger.
I've stopped monitoring threads and unilaterally adding names to the ping list, so if you want on or off the list just say so.

I was just in Houston last week. We were discussing the new regulations regarding NoX emissions. The consensus was grim. When it comes to midstream natural gas production, things are going to get very expensive in order to remain compliant. Some of our stand-by and primary power generation guys pointed out that the portable power generation (used at drill sites and production plants)will no longer be allowed after Jan. 1, 2011. Oh, and offshore business is dead for now.
Hopefully this approach will prove successful and spread to other states!
As far as Texas goes, I’m for Perry all the way and wish him Godspeed in his efforts to thwart these power grabs by these power hungry Socialist Bastards! And stop ‘em in their tracks.
Here’s a big ole Texas HELL YEAH!
Be still my heart! This makes me so happy. If Texas had mountains I’d move there. I’ve been waiting for a governor who had the guts to refuse to comply. It’s the only way to stop these evil bureaucrat bastards and the runaway regulation train. Here’s hoping other states follow the Texas example.

God bless Texas.
Stated Justice O’Connor for the Court in New York v. United States, 505 US 144 (1992):
“While Congress has substantial powers to govern the Nation directly, including in areas of intimate concern to the States, the Constitution has never been understood to confer upon Congress the ability to require the States to govern according to Congress’ instructions. See Coyle v. Oklahoma, 221 U.S. 559, 565 (1911). The Court has been explicit about this distinction. “Both the States and the United States existed before the Constitution. The people, through that instrument, established a more perfect union by substituting a national government, acting, with ample power, directly upon the citizens, instead of the Confederate government, which acted with powers, greatly restricted, only upon the States.” Lane County v. Oregon, 7 Wall., at 76 (emphasis added)...”
...”In providing for a stronger central government, therefore, the Framers explicitly chose a Constitution that confers upon Congress the power to regulate individuals, not States. As we have seen, the Court has consistently respected this choice. We have always understood that even where Congress has the authority under the Constitution to pass laws requiring or prohibiting certain acts, it lacks the power directly to compel the States to require or prohibit those acts. E. g., FERC v. Mississippi, 456 U. S., at 762-766; Hodel v. Virginia Surface Mining & Reclamation Assn., Inc., 452 U. S., at 288-289; Lane County v. Oregon, 7 Wall., at 76. The allocation of power contained in the Commerce Clause, for example, authorizes Congress to regulate interstate commerce directly; it does not authorize Congress to regulate state governments’ regulation of interstate commerce.”
