The most unforgettable Michael McCaul quotes to get the best of your day
Peacekeeping funds are an important and necessary part of what America does for humanity and the rest of the world.
Our farmers and ranchers have never faced as many problems as they do today with drought, range fires, high gas prices and an ever tightening budget on agriculture subsidies.
Texas has been hit especially hard this year by a continuing drought, threatening high winds and increasingly destructive range fires. Simply, these conditions have lead to extremely adverse conditions in the agriculture industry.
In the Steven F. Austin Colony, which was the first colony, Texans first established a provisional government in 1835 with the intention of writing a declaration of independence soon after.
There can be no argument about the Lone Star State's significant contributions to American history, and we must remember the actions and the sacrifices of those who made Texas independence a reality.
Last week, the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring the victims and heroes of September 11th. As we commemorate the anniversary of 9-11, we must also remember that the threat is still very real today.
Texas' and America's farmers are suffering.
As the Member of Congress representing the 10th Congressional District of Texas, I have traveled throughout our area and have seen first-hand how the drought has affected our agricultural communities.
On this National Agriculture Day, when we all should be taking time to thank and pay tribute to America's farmers, ranchers and their families who produce the food for our tables, we are finding those same people in dire need of our help and support.
Unfortunately, cancer is the number one killer of children in this country today, and it destroys not only these innocent victims, but their families as well.
Additionally, any Human Rights Council reform that allows countries with despicable human rights records to remain as members, such as China and Saudi Arabia, is not real reform.
Meth is too easy to make, and unfortunately right now all the ingredients need to make this highly addictive drug are legal and readily available to those who want to cook it up and sell it to our children.
In too many cases, the moms, the dads, the sisters and brothers of children with cancer must stand by a hospital bed and watch helplessly as this horrible disease consumes the life of an innocent child.
Currently, the United States provides 22 percent of the U.
N. annual budgets, over $900 million in fiscal year 2007, and some of that funding goes to the Human Rights Council.
We're making it more difficult to obtain the necessary ingredients to produce meth and tightening criminal penalties for those who deal in this dangerous drug.
I believe the previous administration shrunk from some of our responsibilities as a superpower and made the world a more dangerous place.
We can't really have a serious debate about reform on immigration if we don't have operational control of the border. ... With the executive order out there, with the urgency of the threat, I think it's very likely that we'll get something passed, later this year.
This is what democracy is all about. People have every right to protest whoever's in the White House, without fear of persecution. If this happened in Iran, people would be shot on the streets. This is the United States of America, and we have a First Amendment that protects this kind of speech.
I think a lot of programs, policies have been put in place since 9/11, have prevented a 9/11-style attack. On the other hand, I think the threat has become greater, not lesser.
Every day we do get closer to a cure.
Three out of four children who are diagnosed with cancer will survive the disease, but that is not good enough. The loss of one child to this disease is too much.
We're seeing the sort of liberal phenomenon of activists that are speaking out.
And they have every right to do so. I think we need to respect that in this country. It's just part of the democratic process.
We're going to be examining, how can we more properly screen and vet people coming into the United States? We will also be looking at the border.
You can't just put the military in the streets of the United States rounding up illegal aliens. I think that would be a violation of federal law.
Any employer is going to look at your social media before they hire you.
Why aren't we doing that when we screen people coming into the United States?
