Houston has suffered hurricanes and, like other parts of America, has had to endure some hypocrite politicians who too often initiate intrusive legislation to curtail citizen freedoms and their right to free speech and access to Adult Entertainment.

Admittedly, not every citizen frequents gentlemenís clubs and other adult entertainment venues, but many of them secretly fantasize about it; and, since some of these folks vote, Iím hopeful that those All-American voters will join those who enjoy adult entertainment and vote out the politicians who seem to rape the citizenry with their subjective religious affronts to the Constitution.

I can only wish and hope that all of Texas and America gets quickly fed up with the way right-wing religious nuts lean on politicians to force-feed Americans to fit the religious mold that they demand. Elections are coming, so I urge everyone to not only register and vote, but to also enlist friends, neighbors, co-workers, relatives, and others to do likewise.

Indeed, I think that some church-going voters might also see the light, so please also consider enlisting their support against politicians pandering to those religious radicals who preach one thing from the pulpit but who violate their own souls by being normal sexual beings in their private lives. God gave humans the gift of sex, so donít let politicians win positions where they can dampen the joy of sex between and among consenting adults. I hope a lot of voters across America are already so dismayed by the do-gooder religious right that they will stand up and be counted at the ballot box during the upcoming elections!

A few weeks ago, I went to Sacramento with the www.freespeechcoalition.com folks who arranged lobbying efforts against a proposed new tax bill to target Adult Entertainment with a 25% tax on the legitimate California Industry that employs thousands, already pays significant income and sales taxes, and which is suffering from Internet ''tube'' sites, piracy, and other economic problems. The California bill is based upon the false contention that secondary effects such as crime and blighted property values near adult venues need a tax to offset them; what baloney!

I am amazed that the promoter of this particular bill is hanging his hat on something that canít be validly proven. It also seems like a Constitutional affront that will end up in the Courts. I think legislative authors of baseless tax bills like this should be replaced. Whatís next? Will we not be allowed to view ''R-rated'' movies in the future? Will churches lose their tax-exempt status? Is there no end to taxes and roadblocks to citizen freedoms? Yuk!

Speaking of taxes during these troubled economic times, maybe they should be lowered, not increased; at the very least, spending needs to become efficient and effective. Citizens having to pay more in taxes shun other consumer- spending, the basis of economic health. Raising taxes on businesses and consumers is no way to stimulate the economy; rather, it causes layoffs, decreased income tax and sales tax revenues to the government, and business slowdowns or bankruptcies. Maybe we need to vote out a Lot of politicians, not just the ones who seek to control our sex lives and individual freedoms?

My columns are normally also covered during my monthly interviews by Adult Legends Christy Canyon and Vanessa Blue on Playboy Radio, two very astute, fun, intelligent, personable, and super-sexy All-American young ladies! Tune in to them on Sirius Satellite Channel 198 from 4-7 PM weekdays, West Coast time. Iím normally on for 30 minutes sometime between 5-6 PM on the 16th of each month, or the next business day if the 16th falls on a weekend. I love the way they plug my www.davecummings.com and www.davecummings.TV websites during their show. Playboy Radio rocks!

Folks, weíre at that point where we need to All get registered to vote, to become informed voters, to influence others to do likewise, and to stand up and be counted. Religion and politics has its place, but thanks to the ballot box we donít have to put up with our personal lives and freedoms being trampled upon by the ones who want us to religiously believe and live our lives the way that they demand.

Hang in there---and, Vote!
