Great story about a successful man who does a lot of good. A real life story of a young man from nowhere who has made it to the top thru his own dedication, perseverance, skills, and willingness to give his all to the task at hand. He climbed to the top with help from those who saw his potential.

Nice article. Tony did a good job of writing it.

“I wanted to make money,” he said. “I wanted to make real money.” This pretty much sums up who he is and what his motivation is.

The article can be summed up in one word - LAWYER.

Anyone can achieve what they really desire. Here is the proof. And I know lots of others who have achieved by working hard and finding their own advantages.

Gary Scoggin

Some people desire something for nothing. Buzbee helps them get that becomes a multi-millionaire in the process.

At one time, this Country honored success, now failure seems to be the benchmark. Why are people so hateful of those who are successful?


Exactly why I don't trust Perry any longer - they have to much in common. At least Buzbee is up front about is liberal beliefs!

Gary Scoggin

Not to change the subject, but Perry is no liberal.

Many thousands locally from March 2005 to date might well consider it.

At least the jury in the BP case had enough common sense to do the right thing.

I once had a high regard for Tony, however I just now saw a paid advertisement on TV from one of his Houston Mayoral opponents that Tony gave $500,000.00 to Donald Trump’s campaign. If that’s true, then I have lost all respect for Tony. What sound reason would anybody have to give that kind of money to any

political campaign?

Carlos Ponce

So Tony Buzbee gave $500,000.00 to Donald Trump.[scared] It's his money, he can give to the the candidate of his choice. In all he donated $250,000 to the Trump Victory Fund, donated $35,000 to Trump's PAC, $165,000 to the RNC, donated $500,000 to Trump's inauguration, donated $110,000 to the Republican Party in 11 different states, and donated over $1,000,000 to various republican candidates including $308,000 to Greg Abbott and $80,000 to Rick Perry. He also gave $90,000 donation to the Harris County Democratic Party not including the $20,000 to the DNC Federal PAC in 2018. He also donated $176,178 to Democratic Judicial Candidates. So Ted Gillis is forming his own "Black List".[scared][scared][scared] That's very Joaquin Castro of you.[sad]

Ted Gillis

Yes it his money, and he can do what he pleases with it. It doesn’t however please me when people give large sums of money to political candidates. It makes candidites beholden to them. It’s unfair to us who do not have that kind of money to buy political favors and influence. It should be one vote for one candidate, not 500,000 votes($) for one candidate.

Yes he gives money to great and worthy causes. I commend him for that. He was kind of a folk hero to me, but now he’s smeared his image that I had of him. He’s just another one of those rich guys that buys favors with his wealth.

I have more respect for Joaquin now than I do Tony!

Carlos Ponce

Joaquin outed his own contributors who also gave to Trump. Not a very smart move.
