Here is a look at the past and a glimpse into the future. Austin has experienced many years of explosive growth that brought with it millions of tax dollars. The Austin city government thought and still thinks that the annual cash windfall will never end.
They spent money like crazy without much thought to the future. A few Boondoggles: The Dell contract to link all city departments. The Waller Creek project that had to be stopped and redesigned due to height issues. The purchase of a wood fired power plant. Downtown toilets.
That is just a few but they illustrate how incompetent @MayorAdler 's @austintexasgov is, and there is a direct correlation at how amateur incompetent reporters such as @daustinsanders w/ the @AustinChronicle believe that they actually give Austinites THE STRAIGHT DOPE.

These Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)/non-elected decriminalization activists have also created "Freedom City" policy w/ res. 73 & 74 - violates SB4 & puts Austinites in danger & blocks @ICEgov cooperation. grassrootsleadership.org/releases/2018/…

💙 Austin Police Department needs eveyone to pray for the department! 💙🙏🙇 PLEASE!!
It has been under attack for quite some time in more ways than one. They had pay removed & lost many Officers when contract expired 2 years ago this month. Its ONLY been about a year since...
2. ...the get contract actually was signed. Its been constant worry and stress with all the changes in our beloved City for the past year, trying to catch up on bills, other things while pay was removed. All the while, the City keeps finding ways to VILLIFY every single person..
3. that puts on that APD badge. They HATE the homeless, they hate people of color, they hate, they hate, they hate...
IMAGINE for one second if you were in their shoes, would you still wake up and want to do the same job? They are not without faults, there are many, but ...

Local politics are getting strange...

m.facebook.com/29631918096879…

... the comments are even crazier.

#witchcraft #citycouncil #texaspolitics #antifa #antiLGBTQ #christianity #witches #FridayThe13th

👆 yes, all these hashtags actually go with this madness.
Some interesting people are showing up in the comment threads as well - Former #Austin City Council-member Don Zimmerman (and current founder of the Travis Co. Taxpayer’s Union PAC)

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4

THREAD: So I’m just leaving the @DeptVetAffairs office in #Austin #Texas. A beautiful new facility with new tv’s, furniture, staff, art, and other fancy schmancy stuff...

cc: @POTUS @GregAbbott_TX
My doctor, which whom I’ve been seeing steadily over the last five years, let’s me in on a little secret. He said the @DeptVetAffairs lacks money to hire more staff, Docs/nurses/clinicians/etc... to support the YUGE amount of #Veterans waiting for care.
Not really a secret, right? We all kinda knew that... Here’s the kicker. Ready for this? Are you sitting down? He said “BUT, there’s a large bucket of money 💰 allotted to BEAUTIFY the #VA clinics throughout #Texas”. (Roughly $10M)

Just got off a @ColumbusCrewSC conference call with Anthony Precourt. A lot of tough Qs for the owner from the Ohio media. Naturally. And...
Mood seems really dour for Columbus. Barring some miracle, it's hard to picture this #MLS team staying. Seems like train has left station
Precourt spoke very excitedly about #Austin and cast considerable doubt on viability of #Columbus.
