Construction or Destruction

Whining IS Allowed for PARTICIPANTS!

To us at LIV, Whining IS Allowed for PARTICIPANTS! Is the obsession to build massive unaffordable and unlivable metroplexes in Texas becoming intolerable to you? This is uniting rural and urban Texans who are catching the drift: ever rising taxes and fees, homelessness, concentrated poverty, increased public safety risks, and harm to critically important land and water resources.
