It was Texas to the rescue back when America’s neocon House of Representatives could not bring itself to deal with Representative Tom DeLay’s activities. Had America’s House of Representatives dealt with the case of Mr. Tom DeLay, it would have been the third time and the House would have been forced to do something. To avoid having to do something, the House changed itself. Here is how the House, under the leadership of Representative Hastings managed the House version of the Tom DeLay case. Listen to what joejolly, back then, had to say:
… Additionally, Hastings has received criticism from Democrats for inaction as Chair of the House Ethics Committee, particularly in the case of Rep. Tom. DeLay. Hastings fired the existing staff for the committee and attempted to hire his own Chief of Staff, Ed Cassidy as a replacement …
… In 2007, Congressman Hastings was named one of CREW’s Most Corrupt Members of Congress by government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. …

America’s House of Representatives removed their obstacles to a “Tom DeLay successful sprint, free of encumbrances, to the goal posts” but there was still an obstacle. His name was Mr. Ronnie Earle, Texas District Attorney. The Texas District Attorney had a formidable task. He had to do what 435 members of America’s House of Representatives(neocons in control) failed to do. He had to seek justice in the Tom DeLay case. And he did. Listen:

From saving America’s respect for law and order(‘law and order’ used to be a Republican code expression for the class of people who later came under Romney’s 47% tag) to saving America’s economy – Texas has been a very positive force.
Today a Texan is trying to save America from its cyclical crashing economies. Today Mr. Richard W. Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, focuses on megabanks. The Glass-Steagall Act, of the thirty’s, focused for 66 years, on preventing megabanks. And for 66 years, America’s economy thrived. The neocons, however, decided to and did bring megabanks back in 1999. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley-Act, under a ‘modernization’ tag did just that. And five years later – America was back into a crashed economy. The crashing economy became cyclical – with a major condition being: Republicans in charge of the economy.
