Bigot Gun Nuts in Irving-No sense for the mentally ill

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

So disgusting. I'm trying to imagine the outcry if any Muslims paraded in front of a church with weapons. I agree with most of this DMN editorial except for the part that seems to excuse people parading around in restaurants with guns. Nope. If I go out to eat somewhere and see guns, I'm leaving and finding another place to go .. permanently. Imagine leaving Sunday church services wit..... Read More

On Terrorism and Religion

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Although it's always easier to trot out a bumper-sticker meme of an opinion after something noteworthy, even horrendous happens, i'm going to try to resist that urge here. Some time back, I spent several years examining my own christian beliefs and assumptions to see whether they held up, and they didn't. I pretty much decided that, while others can believe what they want, so can ..... Read More

Roger Williams Self-Serving Transportation Bill Amendment?

Saturday, November 21, 2015

Roger Williams faces questions on auto dealer amendment (Texas Tribune) Apparently he, although a second generation car dealer, just can't see how this could be a conflict of interest. Right The provision, an amendment offered just before midnight on Nov. 11, would allow dealers to rent or loan out vehicles even if they are subject to safety recalls. Rental car companies, m..... Read More

Bernie Sanders Won't Seek Reckless Adventures Abroad, Unlike Hillary Clinton

Friday, November 20, 2015

I watched most of Bernie Sanders speech yesterday on "Democratic Socialism". At one point he clarified that he was not a pacifist with regard to war, but believes wars are undertaken as a last resort. And he contrasted his position with that of Hillary Clinton, who voted to invade Iraq. A lot of us believe that the Bush administration, with the help of people like Hillary Clinton who sup..... Read More

Truly Awful- Jared Fogle's Shrink Blames Subway Diet on Fogle's *Mild Pedophilia*

Thursday, November 19, 2015

What a horrible excuse.  Former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle pleaded guilty to child pornography and additional sex crime charges on Thursday, though it was defense psychiatristDr. John Bradford who initiated gasps in the court room. According to Bradford’s analysis, Fogle became "hypersexual" after losing more than 240 poun..... Read More

Brian Birdwell the Nut Wants Guns in Classrooms-Asking Texas AG to clarify

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Please, please tell me that someone rational will run against this guy the next time he's up for re-election.  Incidentally, not only does this nut want guns in classrooms but dorms. Here's the viewpoint I'm with, becuase, um, we are no longer in the days of vigilante cowboys. Many professors, especially on the University of Texas at Austin campus, have seized upon that cl..... Read More

Video-Somervell County Hospital District meeting 11/17/2015

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Apparently this was a do-over meeting.  Several interesting things about this. First, the part I have circled indicates that Somervell County taxpayer money from Somervell County's hospital district will be spent for improving the facilities in private gated community Pecan Plantation for the benefit of people who live in a different hospital district and pay no taxes. (Hood Co..... Read More
