Texas Governor and Supreme Court Prioritize Bathrooms over Classrooms

Sorry Texans! The priority in education for Texas government is to stop transgender students from using the appropriate bathroom. Our Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, called this week for the resignation of Fort Worth Superintendent Kent Scribner allowing the district's transgender students to choose their own bathroom. “Without any discussion with parents, board members, principals, and other community leaders, Dr. Scribner’s unilateral action underscores this lack of fitness to hold his position as s … [Read more...]

Feelin’ Berned

Call me what you will, but this is my position. I have given this a helluva lotta thought over the last several months, and I'm completely sincere in what I say. Every single person I personally know is a Bernie supporter -including people who normally vote Republican. How could any sane or rational person vote Republican in THIS election? I have only ever met only one person in person who said they would vote for Hillary, but that was back when Bernie first announced his candidacy. So that … [Read more...]

Joycelyn Elders Approves of Sander’s Marijuana Legalization Plan

Former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders is most known for taking stances such as support for comprehensive sex education that included education on masturbation that were not just controversial with the general public, but during the Clinton administration as well. She also received disapproval during her tenure for saying that marijuana legalization should be studied. A pediatrician, Dr. Elders served as Surgeon General in the Clinton administration. In 1993, she opined that drug legalization … [Read more...]

The Hateful Voter

Although support for same-sex marriage has risen from 39 percent in 2001 to 55 percent in 2015, GOP candidates are still running their homophobic credentials to court evangelical voters. Republicans face an aging base at the polls that lags behind the country in same-sex marriage acceptance at 32 percent. Religious belief also plays a role in shaping the political landscape for GOP candidates.The top GOP presidential candidates beliefs on the matter reflect the majority of their … [Read more...]

Making it through the GOP Debates

I really appreciate the people, who are going the distance on watching the GOP debates especially. It takes real determination to wade through all that. There is another one for the good people of New Hampshire tonight.   It's important for me and everyone, who feels the same to get as many people to watch them as possible. I live in Texas, and we haven't seceded yet, but we are the canaries in the coal mine for just how bad the GOP has gotten. Even here there are people, who don't get how bad … [Read more...]

Not feeling ya…Bern

I assure you I am talking about areas as a supporter and voter where I don't "Feel the Bern" in ways that are intellectual. New Hampshire and Super Tuesday primaries are fast approaching. Perhaps what the Iowa Caucus statistical tie is showing us is how much difficulty Democrats are having choosing between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.  Understandable given the buyer's remorse over electing Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, which I don't completely get but this is not a post about the … [Read more...]

Trumpless Debate Tonight

In my opinion it is always a good idea to watch a presidential debate. Even though the GOP debates have been rancorous. At least tonight we won't have to cringe at Trump bullying Jeb Bush. More information is always better though. One of the objections I often hear that sets my teeth on edge is "both parties are the same". Any potential voter, who watches both of the party's debates has substantive reasons to tell you why that is not the case. It is a claim that can only be made in ignorance of … [Read more...]

Finicum’s Martyrdom: Why Officers need to break ranks with their own unlawful killers

The lack of justice for recent publicized cases of rogue officers murdering unarmed black people has generated widespread public mistrust of law enforcement. Mere moments after, Bundy militant LaVoy Finicum was shot for reportedly charging the FBI after trying to escape arrest in his truck. Bundy sympathizers are already trying to deify him as a martyr, who was shot while cooperating with the police. A particularly egregious example of this comes from a state Assemblywoman Shelly Shelton (R) f … [Read more...]

Last Chance to Hear Out the Democrats

The Democratic Primaries are fast approaching, and time to evaluate who you want to vote for is running out. If you are a Republican vote for Trump, and make Progressives gleeful at your party's demise. Seriously, the Democratic debates started off plodding, but the last debate in South Carolina was lively and spirited. Maybe your last opportunity to see what the candidates have to say for themselves is on CNN tonight at 9 PM Eastern. It won't be a debate, and some people may actually like to … [Read more...]

Clinton: National Security Concerns

I have to agree with Bernie Sanders that I don't give a damn about her damn emails, or Benghazi conspiracies either. This won't be the type of post about some arcane conspiracy that an avid Alex Jones fan would obsess over.  Later, I will get to my concerns about Senator Bernie Sanders in the next post, so it won't be a Clinton bashing party either.Although I am a Sanders supporter, Clinton still has time to change my mind. I watch the presidential debates with questions in mind I'd like to … [Read more...]
