It’s Time To Raise The Minimum Wage

The Federal minimum wage sits at $7.25 an hour.  Fast food workers are scheduled to walk off the job in about 100 cities today.  Corporate profits are at all time highs. Even congress has raised their own wages several times since the minimum wage was last raised.  So what's the problem?

Will The Next New City Council Asshat Please Step Up?

I used to have high reverence for people who ran for public office.  They do give up a lot and in some instances are not even paid for their service. I no longer feel that way.  I've seen far to many who are doing it for motivations that have nothing to do with "service".

Now, Councilman Todd Klein has announced he will not run for re-election and I'll be happy to hold the door open for him.

Dear District One Voters-You Blew It.

It looks like Councilman Victor Hernandez is here to stay after a failed recall vote.  This incredible ass-hat has dodged another bullet and it is out and out embarrassing.

Nutjob Pastor Comes Out Against Girl Scout Cookies

Who doesn't love Girl Scout Cookies?  It turns out homophobic right wing radio pastors don't.  Pastor Kevin Swanson accuses the Girl Scouts of everything from promoting a "gay and lesbian agenda" to supporting abortion.

Dump The Arrogant Councilman Once And For All

Despite what you might think, I'm not super "up" on local politics. The only reasons I watch what's going on at all is to have stuff to poke fun at on the radio. Over the years I've watched Victor Hernandez embarrass the city, gum up the works and cost us much more than he should of in time, effort and money.

Klein Panders To Public With Proposed Distracted Driving Campaign

Kids, this is called "pandering" or 'sucking up to the home crowd'.   Instead of dealing with the real issues of the day, one of our councilmen is using the old political smoke and mirrors trick of putting an issue up front that nobody really can object to.

Time To Put Up Or Shut Up In Local Politics

District One voters in Lubbock have one of the ultimate tools in democracy at their fingertips beginning today.  Early voting has started in the recall election for Victor Hernandez.  I am advocating that we send a strong message to Mr. Hernandez and to the council at large by voting him out.

Do You Think It’s Time To Change Out Congressmen?

Here's a sad fact-congress has a 5% approval rating, yet 90% of incumbents get re-elected. What? Why do we keep sending back the people who have lost touch with their voting base? With the recent (and ongoing) government shutdown, it's time we send a strong message that (cue the Twisted Sister) we're not going to take it anymore.

What Happened To Dignity And Class In Political Discussions?

One of the frustrating things for me about 2013 America is that people no longer have the dignity to "call a spade a spade".  No matter what heinous thing any member of their political party does, they're not willing to admit that person was wrong (presumably because it would taint the integrity of the entire party).

There Are No “2 Million Bikers” And “One Million Muslims” In D.C.

Jeez, I can't believe I have to write another one of these.  When are you people going to quit passing around Facebook without checking your facts?  I guess these stories had some basis in fact, which I'll detail next, but, realllllllllllllllllllllly!

What To Do About Syria?

Yeah, pretty tough topic. Here's the deal.  They've confirmed that the leader of the country had chemical weapons used on his own people. Evidently sometime in history world leaders said "no fair" to their use.  Now everybody is looking to the U.S. to help, and I'm really starting to wonder "what's the point?"

Republicans Pull Plug On NBC And CNN Broadcasting Debates

Trust me, this isn't a Republican thing, this isn't a Democratic thing, this is a whiny baby thing.  NBC & CNN have a biography on Hillary Clinton planned.  That's about it.  I don't think it's really gone any further than people at the channel saying "hey let's do this".  Republican party leaders said "if you go along with that plan, you can't host our debates".  NBC & CNN didn't back down to the threats.
