Smith County Jail Daily News | Breaking The Law to Build a Jail


With all the lies, and there have been many, we know that eventually it will be found that someone is telling the truth, we have not figured out who, but when we know, we are sure that they will be prosecuted for it! It makes as much sense as the rest of the situation.

I am a little ticked off at the guys over at, for the picture of Richard Nixon in the story “I am Not a Crook!” another chapter in the continuing saga of “Commissioners Gone Wild”. The obvious attempt to show the similarities between Richard Nixon and the Smith county commissioners court, is very mean spirited, and unfair to the memory of Richard Nixon!

Just joking guys I am really not ticked at you.

The story I am referring to says that:

“On July 30, 2008, in response to an open records request, Judge Baker stated, in writing, that the private SECRET meetings were primarily for information gathering.  He even stated publicly several times that the group gathered information.  Last night for the first time, Judge Baker admitted that a jail proposal was developed during these private meetings.

Let’s pause for a moment.  The sound that you just heard was the collective gasp of anyone and everyone who is familiar with the Texas Open Meetings Act.  These people know that Judge Baker just made a major concession.  It is important and on video.  This statement by Judge Baker is very significant.”

I saw the clip, and the only thing that is wrong with the article quoted above, is the word “concession” should be replaced by the word “confession”.

This would seem to have moved from the court of public opinion to the actual court system.

I am still baffled by all of this.  Just exactly what are these people trying to do? It would seem that they are destroying what they fought so hard to build, and doing more of the same every time they have opportunity! The irony is thick enough to cut with a knife. A group of officials, breaking the law, in order to build a jail! Who could have imagined?
