The Roundup

Article Icon 1No Texas Presidential Debate

The Commission on Presidential Debates canceled four scheduled debates—including one at Texas State University on September 16—after the candidates sidestepped the commission and agreed to arrange their own debates.

The San Marcos debate would have been the first presidential debate held in Texas, and the university planned to spend $5 million on the event.

Last month, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump agreed to two network-sponsored debates after criticizing the commission’s debate format, schedule, and perceived bias.

Article Icon 1Texas Best State For Business, Again 

For the second year in a row, Texas’ business climate was ranked best in the nation by Business Facilities magazine, a publication marketed to executives looking to relocate their companies.

In a press release highlighting the recognition, Gov. Abbott touted the state’s absence of a personal and corporate income tax, its reasonable regulatory environment, and its skilled workforce.

More than $60 billion in capital investment and 35,000 new jobs are expected from the 1,200 company expansions or relocations in Texas last year. The Texas economy—the eighth largest in the world—grew at a rate of 5.7% last year, compared to 2.5% nationally.

The company has produced over 300 flavors throughout its history, and its current year-round lineup includes 24.

The Flyover

I’m medical scientist, Clint Winters.

You probably know me from my work with the Conolidine pain reliever and professional athletes. I need you to go to a quiet place and read this carefully…

If you are a man over 40, this is a BIG revelation! 

You are now learning about the future of testosterone enhancement. 

Now, close your eyes and imagine this…

Clinical-grade testosterone support without painful needles, terrible side effects, or expensive doctor visits.

Seriously, I’m talking support you could administer from your couch.

… And NO, I’m not talking about some store-bought booster; I’m talking about actual testosterone, just like you would inject.

Impossible, right?  Wrong! 

Allow me to show you the FUTURE of testosterone enhancement.  

This form of naturally extracted testosterone has been fully legalized and is NOW available over the counter (no script needed).

You simply place it under your tongue daily (literally takes seconds).

… And you are adding 80 nanograms of pure testosterone to your system every single day. That is enough to reach “prime of life” levels in less than 10 days. 

Here is the crazy part, men who don’t qualify for TRT due to health concerns can STILL use this form without worry. 

Around Texas

Plano: The city council approved a motion to reduce sales tax payments to Dallas Area Rapid Transit as ridership remains well below pre-pandemic levels.

Amarillo: Potter County officials are planning to build a $30 million addition to the county jail after reaching the 599-inmate capacity. The new “pod” would house up to 144 more inmates. (See Video)

Waco: Starting July 1, residents can water outdoors only three days a week year-round after the city council adopted a water conservation and drought contingency plan. (See Video)

Dallas: Former City Manager T.C. Broadnax received over $467,000 in severance, including a year’s salary and unused vacation pay, after resigning last month. Mayor Eric Johnson opposed the payout to Broadnax, now Austin’s city manager. (More)
