This morning the #txlege Senate Committee on State Affairs will take up a slew of #election related bills authored by @loiskolkhorst @CreightonForTX @TeamBettencourt @SenBryanHughes.…
Kolkhorst is laying out SB 260, regarding voter registration rolls. Says there are some counties in Texas that have more registered voters than eligible citizens, mostly smaller counties.
From the bill analysis: "The language of S.B. 260 follows closely to that of Ohio which was upheld by the United States Supreme Court in Husted vs Randolph Institute argued before the court in 2018."

Y'all ready 2 get this #PurpleParty started? @Prince entered @Sunset Sound early May '82 to record what would become his longest electro-jam #Automatic. At over 9 minutes sending the project dubbed 1999 he began in Jan into unintentional Double LP territory
He arrived with clearly something on his mind as everything in #Automatic feels like a confession An urgent unsettling genuine desperation unfolding with lyrical themes of emotion as technology. Lockstep speak-singing in the same pattern of his drum machine.
Both principal themes at the time, spiritual & profane come into play, the latter on full display when he makes cavalier declaration of a sexual favor, the listener & backing singer @JillJones simultaneously snap to as she excitedly responds “You will?!”

Ok #Houston we need to have a talk about gentrification v. revitalization. And while I hate to target a specific person, this example is egregiously bad. #HouNews 1/
Revitalization is being in new infrastructure while centering the community already in place, making sure legacy residents can stay in place, & local business are the norm instead of chains. 2/
Gentrification is “discovering” a neglected, usually non-white community, and calling it a blank slate.

Exhibit A is *this guy.*

Let me start with #insulin. In the 1970s, insulin was extracted from the pancreas of animals. In the 1980s, @Genentech, working with Eli Lilly (@LillyPad), developed insulin using a new technology that I call #PrecisionFermentation. It wasn’t animal insulin. It was human insulin.
The mainstream would say: “health care is slow, it can’t be disrupted.”

Well, here’s the S-curve of #PrecisionFermentation human insulin. Human insulin disrupted animal insulin in about 13 years.
#PrecisionFermentation is a concept that I coined in my @rethink_x report ‘Rethinking Food and Agriculture’ with @CatherineTubb in September 2019.

Home builder commentary from our survey this month was about as negative as I've seen to date. Here's some of the market color that jumped out...
#OklahomaCity builder: "Biggest challenge is your customers who just closed their home and see you drop prices by $30,000."
#Jacksonville builder: "Buying land at the top of the market and having to pull every incentive lever to sell is not a recipe for success. We'll cut starts ~60% to 70% in 2023."

“Housing is significantly affected by these higher rates.”
-Jay Powell today about the Fed’s impact on housing

Every month our team surveys 1,000+ agents across the US on what they're seeing in their local markets.

Short 🧵 on local housing markets from our monthly survey:
#Houston, TX: “Home prices have most first-time home buyers priced out of home ownership. It's even worse with the higher interest rates decreasing what the buyers can qualify for.”
#Denver, CO: “Cost of living [and] interest rate [increases] are keeping most buyers from buying.”

🧵Thread on the gaslighting taking place regarding @TXsecofstate Forensic Audit Division (FAD) letter to #HarrisCounty Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum in #Houston.
The 15-page letter w/docs was sent Tuesday, but someone leaked it to a reporter who then posted 2 pages and misled the public about its full contents. That person instead focused on the Texas Secretary of State sending the inspectors to Harris County, but...

Per a 1997 state law, the SOS is required to send inspectors to any county upon the request of 15 or more voters and has been sending them to Harris County, the state’s most populous, and many others for years.
