Now, there has to be an upside of being a friend of Louie Gohmert’s, and I think I found it on his campaign finance reports.


$521.32 for Horderves from Daddy Sam’s in Carthage

Here is Daddy Sam’s Catfish and Barbeque in Carthage.


Can you even imagine how many Horderves you can get from Daddy Sam’s for $521.32?  You know there had to be farm implements involved in the delivery.

Anybody know the going price for Horderves nowadays?

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

Because Making Friends Ain’t On Ted Cruz’s To Do List

Do you wanna know what Ted Cruz hates more and has less respect for than Obamacare?

Republicans.  No, seriously.

Sen. Ted Cruz believes Republicans can defund “Obamacare” if they stand together, but he said “scared” Republicans are standing in the way.

“What I can tell you is there are a lot of Republicans in Washington who are scared. They’re scared of being beaten up politically,” Cruz (R-Texas) told Glenn Beck on TheBlaze radio show Monday. […]

“I’ve been astonished by how many Republicans in Washington want a fig leaf … but they don’t actually want to succeed,” Cruz told Beck.

A fig leaf?  A freekin’ fig leaf.

Do you know what a fig leaf covers?

Geezzz, it would take a giant fig leaf to cover Cruz because he’s the biggest winkie in Washington.

Thanks to Brian C for the heads up.

Yes, Because There Is A Limit To How Wide Crazy Can Be, But Not How Deep It Can Go

Holy pepper spray in a can.

Remember the cop who purposefully walked down the line of protesting kids and sprayed them all with pepper spray?

Well, come to find out, he was not crazy when he did it, but that all those hurt kids made him crazy afterwards.

The former police lieutenant who became the target of worldwide ire after dousing Occupy UC Davis protesters with pepper spray, John Pike, is appealing for worker’s compensation, claiming psychiatric injury caused by the Nov. 18, 2011, incident.

Dude.  Really?  Crazy didn’t make you do this?  All those internet memes hurt you and made you crazy?

Pike, whose annual salary was $121,680, remained on paid leave for eight months while the pepper-spraying was investigated.

Eight months?

So you could practice this?

Thanks to Brian for the heads up.

Oh Yeah

Well, it seems that Cumulus Radio is dropping both Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity like spit off a tall building.

The right is spinning it as contract negotiation problems and not that Rush and Sean are getting on everybody’s nerves.  That’s kinda true, but the contract negotiations include the fact that Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey reported “a $2.4 million first-quarter decline in revenue related to talk programming, which he attributed, indirectly, to Limbaugh’s remarks about [Sandra] Fluke.”

Here’s the deal.  When you lean on advertisers and they feel the pinch and withdraw their advertising, that means Cumulus loses money with advertisers withdrawing.  They try to find out what’s causing them to lose money and they hack it off.  In this case, it was Rush Limbaugh.

So the sweet irony of it all is that Rush Limbaugh got killed by free enterprise.

That is very cool.

‘Cause Ignorance is Bliss (And a Little Explosive)

One of the great things about having Republicans run Texas is that there has been a great relaxing of sewage containment – you can pretty much crap anywhere as long as you ain’t one of them terrorists.  Especially if you’re a member of the Chamber of Commerce.

Just two days after a bomb ripped through the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, state officials began to track casualties so they could gather vital information on treatment and safety.

Texas’ response to the explosion of a fertilizer plant in West has been far different. More than three months after that disaster, the state health department has yet to start collecting details on deaths or injuries.

Dr. David Lakey, State Health Services commissioner, ain’t talking to the media.  He is indicating that there’s no rush.  There’s an unofficial count of 300 injured but that’s just a guess.

A survey of injuries could highlight the potential danger faced by 20,000 Texans who live close to the state’s 73 other facilities that store large amounts of ammonium nitrate, the chemical that exploded in West.

It even got down to  Sherry Williams, the director of the county health department, saying that she was concerned about who got to see the results of this study, adding, “I want to make sure this is not a hunting/blaming expedition.”

Well, hell no – let’s not waste time finding out who did this and how to keep it from happening again.  Obviously a war isn’t necessary so why the tarnation would we want to know?

This is bidness, folks.  And sacrificing a few hundred people on the alter of unregulated bidness is a small price to pay for Rick Perry’s business ads in other states.  Hell, we didn’t even demand that all the sacrificials be virgins.

Bidness in Texas – where guesstimates will do unless it’s a CEO salary.
