The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

George Washington’s Farewell Address


FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.
[The World Book Encyclopedia]

When in Doubt ask the AG

Texas Senator, Dan Patrick has a bill to introduce. For the Law of Texas, Federal, hiring illegal aliens . Some companies are hiring undocumented illegal aliens, paying cash under the table, not requiring any documents, not withholding any taxes, not paying their fair share (keeping the profits under the table), under bidding companies who hire documented aliens. Not a level playing field for companies who try to obey the laws of the state, and or country.
The weird part is any one who tries to obey the law is hammered with racial remarks. A lawmaker who tries to do the job they were sent to Austin to do for their constituency, is labeled a raciest.
Senator Dan Patrick has decided to put the State's Attorney General in the mix, by seeking legal advice on what the new laws' language can or cannot have, referring to companies, continuing to operate, in a manner by breaking current laws of hiring, with out documents, and paying cash under the table to these illegal aliens, not withholding taxes, not filing the correct documents, to the correct agency.
Bankrupting companies who hire aliens with documents, withhold taxes, and provide a service to the local community, at a fair price. There has to be an enforcer. Some part of the law has to have teeth. In the Spot Light is now the State's Attorney General.
Other states have passed laws of this content. And now, tied up in courts.
Not wanting to wait for their states courts rulings, Texas State's Lawmaker, Senator Dan Patrick is seeking the correct language from the expert(s).
Good luck on that, Senator Dan Patrick.
