Justice Scalia

I am not glad when someone dies, but I will read Scalia’s obituary with some comfort and relief.

Just so you know about Marfa.  I have seen them myself.  They are weird.


Weekend Fun

February 13, 2016

It’s beautiful weather here and all that block-walking for Bubba ain’t gonna do itself, so I m gifting you this excellent and very much fun story that Charles sent me from the state on my right.

It seems that Texas finds a way to pretty much ruin everything.


Ted and Hoochy Ladies

February 12, 2016

So, it appears that Ted Cruz has had to pull one of his campaign ads because one of his pretend supporters in the ad is a porn star.

The campaign defends her saying that she’s a “soft core” porn star.  Her greatest hits include Kinky Sex Club, Milf, Carnal Wishes, Animal Lust, Insatiable Obsession, and Sex Spa II.  That’s soft?  Gee, do they know what those titles mean?

However, this proves once again that there’s some things people will only do for money, you know, like run around in your birthday suit in front of a camera or appear to support Ted Cruz.

She’s the one who says, “Maybe next time you should vote for more than just a pretty face.”  (This is workplace safe. She has her clothes on.)


Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Doom, Gloom, and What The Hell Was He Thinking?

February 12, 2016

Ted Cruz has recruited Rick Perry to head up organizing veterans for Cruz.

Hell yeah, let’s get those veterans onboard with Texas Republicans, who cut provisions of the Hazelwood Act and tried to do it the day before Memorial Day.  The Hazelwood Act provided tuition assistance at state universities to veterans and any unused portion was passed to their children.  Which, of course, Republicans saw as the end of modern civilization.

You can bet your sweet patootie that Rick was promised a cushy job as head of veteran’s affairs if Cruz is president.  Rick has been out of work for some time now and being as how he’s never had a real job in his whole damn life, the boy is kinda desperate.

Keep the Promise to Veterans was officially formed Thursday, according to records with the Federal Election Commission. It is listed as affiliated with three other pro-Cruz super PACs organized under the Keep the Promise umbrella.

It was not immediately clear who plans to fund Keep the Promise to Veterans, which appears to be part of the same network of pro-Cruz super PACs that entered 2016 with almost $30 million in the bank. Walt said no money had been deposited in the Keep the Promise to Veterans’ account as of Friday morning.

Well, at least Cruz is smart enough not to give Rick Perry access to any money.  Spending money on himself is the only damn thing he’s any good at.

Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.

I Love Yew, Texas

February 12, 2016

Fayette County is a cozy little place between me and Austin with some of the best kolaches and people anywhere around.

My friends Vickie and Cecil live in Fayette County and they just love to tell me some of the great stories from their area.  They have a doozy this time.  Outside of being friends, I attended the Democratic National Convention in 2012 with Vickie and Cecil.

Cecil, who is a retired Army Colonel, got a prolonged laugh over what’s consequential to Republicans.  It seems that a long-time voting location is being changed because Republicans refuse to vote anywhere there’s an outhouse.

Now you’d think with the amount of crap Republicans have to wade around in just to meet their candidates in person, they’d welcome a nice clean outhouse. But, nooooo …

I’ve attached the article from the Fayette County Newspaper that hit the stands today.  You know you live in rural Texas when there’s a picture of an outhouse on your newspaper’s front page.

Republicans are moving their primary election further away but Democrats have paid for a handicapped assessable pot-a-potty to be on site to keep the voting location convenient to their voters — all eight of them — because every vote counts.

You may need to right click and open the article in a new window or save it and enlarge it.  I uploaded it actual size.
