Obama’s Latte Salute Is The Latest Target Of Haters
So the President exited Air Force One with a drink in his hand. He then saluted the military with the cup in his hand. Some folks with axes to grind see this as disrespect for the military. I see it as absent minded behavior from a guy who just ordered military strikes and was on his way to meet wit…
Rick Perry Indicted on Two Charges of Abuse of Power
UPDATE (8/16): Gov. Perry addressed Friday's indictments in a short press conference, today.  "We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country," he said. "It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our sta…
LP&L Director Gets $700,000.00 Just To Go Away
I don't know much about this situation. I just know when taxpayers are getting a raw deal.  Think about what you could be for $700 K.  How about 20 cars?  7 houses? A few college educations?  You do the math based on the way you live and figure it out.
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 …

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 t…
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 o…
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 Si…
