#TXLEGE: How Your Property Taxes are Subsidizing the Most WRETCHED Capitol Publications

"And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!"
Revelation 18:2

Quorum report is a corrupt, low-circulation, publication that serves as a propaganda outlet for the good ol' boy, pro-status quo, crowd at the Capitol.  It specializes in gaslighting.  It's the number 1 purveyor of the toxic Capitol culture.

Which makes this line from a story they published last Friday interesting:

We don't pay much attention to Quorum Report's advertisers, because we don't pay much attention to Quorum Report, but scrolling up the page does reveal:

There you have it: The Texas Association of Counties Advertising in plain sight.  That means, if you pay taxes to a county government in Texas, you are subsidizing Quorum Report.  Talk about compelled speech!!!

Bottom Line: The primary reason to abolish taxpayer funded lobbying is because it raises your cost of living in a million subtle ways.  But taxpayer funded lobbying is also an affront to free speech.  This is a textbook example of why.
