Texas, Our Texas, Let’s Get Drunk and Nakkid

Boy’s State, where high school juniors go to learn about government.  Only the best and the brightest get to go, which explains why Texas is such a mess.

Our Boy’s State turned a little sexy — well, ta tas took front and center stage.

Huff Post has the story but the whole story comes from Burnt Orange Report.

At this year’s Texas Boys State conference, 920 high school students, or statesmen as they’re referred to, gathered at the University of Texas at Austin to form municipalities, run for office, and pass legislation.
During their hectic week learning the “rights, privileges, and responsibilities of franchised citizens,” they debated the legalization of marijuana and drafted strategies for water conservation and education and immigration reform.

They also gave speeches touting “Cold Beer and Titties,” designed campaign logos showing women in bikinis, and created a party platform shaming teenage mothers.

And there ya go – your future Republican state Lege!


Hey, as Merdine just said, “At least it wasn’t nakkid goats this time.”

Thanks to Sarah for the heads up.


Stolen Property

I completely stole this line from my friend Carol Gates …

“Christianity sure does get a lot of bang for its buck, considering it doesn’t actually contribute any bucks.”

Isn’t that a great line?


Arkansas Border Patrol

June 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Apparently the state of Arkansas has a border patrol all around the state ready to stop incoming former first ladies.

And I know that because

Asked how [Hillary] Clinton would fare in Arkansas if she pursued the presidency in 2016, 2nd Congressional District chairman Johnny Rhoda told U.S. News, “She’d probably get shot at the state line.”

When a reporter noted that Clinton undoubtedly enjoys a measurable amount of support in a state where her husband served as governor, Rhoda replied, “Nobody has any affection for her. The majority don’t.”

However, Public Policy Polling says that Hillary is strong in Arkansas.

PPP’s newest Arkansas poll finds that the Clinton brand is still pretty strong in the state. Bill Clinton has a 55/37 favorability rating there, and Hillary Clinton leads all but one of the leading Republicans there in hypothetical 2016 match ups despite the state’s recent Republican lurch. Clinton leads Jeb Bush 46/41, Rand Paul 48/42, and Chris Christie 47/38.

You know who is not popular in Arkansas?

Johnny Rhoda.

He was asked to resign.

I think maybe he’s driving a cab now because this is the latest picture of him I could find on Google.



Ok-ha-homa! Where The Wind Comes Sweeping Through the Brains

June 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so there’s this Republican running for congress in the GOP primary in Oklahoma.


It’s the eyes, y’all.

His name is Tim Murray and he honestly believes his opponent, Frank Lucas, is dead and is being “displayed by a look alike.”

He honestly believes that.

So, he’s protesting the election.

His website says that …

The election for U.S. House for Oklahoma’s 3rd District will be contested by the Candidate, Timothy Ray Murray. I will be stating that his votes are switched with Rep. Lucas votes, because it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike. Rep. Lucas’ look alike was depicted as sentenced on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about  Jan. 11, 2011.

Frank Lucus says he’s never been to Ukraine and, by gawd, I believe him.

What I can’t understand is why Tim Murray lost.  He’s got that conspiracy Tea Party crap down pat.

Thanks to everybody and Aunt Matilda for the heads up.

Hobby Lobby: Barefoot, Pregnant and Crafty

June 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

The Supremes did it on a 5-4 decision.  If you work for Hobby Lobby, being pregnant constantly is a job perk.

You know how the rightwing feels about President Obama?  That’s how I feel about Scalia.  I think we need to see his birth certificate AND his law degree.  Damn Ronald Reagan for appointing his nincompoop.
