More Dicks running for office as republicans

January 18, 2022

Eric Dick, the current Harris County Department of Education Trustee, is now running for Harris County Treasurer giving up his seat. His wife, Danielle Dick, is now running for his vacant seat. She has filed an Appointment for Treasurer for Joe Synoradzki the same treasurer Eric uses. Joe works at the Dick Lawfirm.

Danielle will probably use the same method of fundraising Dick has used, that is self financing. Dick over the last few elections has not raised much money depending upon his own personal funds to litter the city with Dick pics signs. Hopefully she will learn from her husband’s mistakes and will not use deceptive mailers implying she is being endorsed by elected officials that will never endorsed her or Dick.

Do one likes a dick. Don’t be a dick:

Dick has a preliminary hearing scheduled at the end of this month in front of the Texas Ethic Commission for his deceptive media content. As you might remember Dick paid for a mailer to the African American community during the 2019 City Council runoff. This mailer did not have the required “Political ad paid for by…” statement. It also looked like prominent Black elected officials such as former President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and others were endorsing his run for Houston City Council. 

Another Harris County Republican lost his job due to racist comments

January 17, 2022

What the living f*ck has happened to the Harris County Republican Party? (you know the answer)

Another republican from the Harris County Republican Party has lost their job due to making racist comments. Cy-Fair ISD Trustee Scott Henry, who was endorsed by the Harris County Republican Party, made racist comments at his first school board meeting. He has now lost his job with a software company out of California. Henry has since removed his campaign website and all his social media account. I would bet he will be resigning from Cy-Fair ISD soon.

Back in 2020 the newly elected chair of the Harris County Republican Party, Kieth Nielsen, made a racist post concerning a Martin Luther King quote. That racist quote cost him his position as the Planning Commissioner of Pasadena. He later resigned as chair.

Former City Councilman Greg Travis, another HCRP republican, also make racist comments. City Council couldn’t remove him from his committee assignments because he had already resigned many months before. They also couldn’t fire him and since he is self employed he wouldn’t fire himself. Unfortunately his so called “conservative” buddies on City Council, Knox, Kubosh, and Martin said nothing, did nothing. They sat quietly while Travis eventually quit….to run for State Representative.

Good luck with the job hunt.

And…..this is how to respond to racist comments by elected officials

January 16, 2022

Cy-Fair ISD Trustee Scott Henry, who was endorsed by the Harris County Republican Party, made racist comments at his first school board meeting. He has now lost his job with a software company out of California. From KHOU:

CYPRESS, Texas (KTRK) — The Cypress Fairbanks ISD trustee at the center of a viral video in which he linked Black teachers to poor school performance is out of a job, according to Splunk.

Splunk, which is an IT company, shared the news of Scott Henry no longer being an employee in response to a tag on Twitter.

Henry could have immediately issued a statement sincerely apologizing for his comments and he could have been spared but he had another problem. Turns out his social media account was chock full of divisive comments. He has since cancelled all of his accounts.

And he has since been cancelled from his job. 

When you tolerate racism in elected officials. Cy-Fair ISD Trustee Scott Henry

January 13, 2022

Remember Houston City Council Member Greg Travis? He was the one that quit all of his committee assignments leaving the work to his colleagues. He then quit to run for State Representatives. He was also under fire for making racist comments with many asking him to resign. City Council eventually took no action and he is now running for higher office.

Cy-Fair ISD Trustee Scott Henry, who was endorsed by the Harris County Republican Party, is following in the footsteps of Greg Travis claiming that a more diverse teacher population leads to lower performance. “The more black folk the worse the grades are.” Ok, he didnt say it in that way but from the Houston Chronicle:

“Do you know what the statewide percent is for Black teachers? 10 percent. Houston ISD, which I’ll use to shine an example, you know what their average percentage of Black teachers is? 36 percent. I looked that up. You know what their dropout rate is? 4 percent. I don’t want to be 4 percent. I don’t want to be HISD. I want to be a shining example. I want to be the district standard. I want to be the premium place where people go to be.”

Well he should of just said “The more black folk the worse the grades are.” because that is what he said. Mayor Turner, County Judge Hidalgo and others have called for him to resign. And he should. This is an opportunity to make a huge statement to any closet racist.

And present them from ever running for office again.

What republicans really think about teachers. (They said it out loud)

January 11, 2022

Michael Quinn Sullivan is a kingpin of the Texas Republican Party. Like trump he “tells it like it is” but unfortunately he did it publicly, as in out loud. What Greg Abbott says in his inside voice Sullivan just states what the party really thinks about public education and our Texas teachers. Greg Abbott and other leaders of the party are silent because it is hard to distance yourself from the actual beliefs of your party.

Maybe this will finally convince teachers that the Republican Party isn’t their friend and maybe, just maybe, they will stop voting for the damn idiots.

Qanon republicans call for the resignation of the CCISD Superintendent

December 11, 2021

The next board meeting and community input ought to be another shit show. It will be truly embarrassing. According to the Houston Chronicle:

A group of Clear Creek ISD parents are calling for the district’s superintendent to resign less than a year into his tenure, saying he has put into place lessons that indoctrinate students with “anti-white” sentiment, an accusation that appears to have followed him from his last job in Virginia.

Eric Williams came to Clear Creek in February from Loudon County Public Schools in northern Virginia, which has become a national flashpoint of right-wing activism over “critical race theory.”

This “group” are the Qanon republicans in the district. The kids in school have more common sense, dignity, and respect for other people than they do. Truly god awful people. Our school board should be making decisions about our students based upon science, education, and accounting principles. Something the Qanon people have no interest in. They thrive on chaos. They enjoy disrupting. Its what they live for.

They probably can’t even spell CRT. The district has stated, over and over and over again the following:

“CRT is not in our curriculum and it’s not in our instructional resources. In fact, our board adopted a policy prohibiting district resources from doing any sort of scapegoating or stereotyping based on race.”

CRT is a graduate course. It is not taught in undergraduate school, or in high school, or in middle school, or elementary school, or kindergarten. Most Qanon republicans don’t know what CRT is and those that do don’t really care. It is all about chaos. Wide eyed, pitch fork carrying, meth head, Qanons.

This is the Republican Party.

Houston City Councilman Greg Travis calls for "Teacher Cams"

July 8, 2021

Houston City Councilman Greg Travis has a lot of time on his hands since he quit all of his committee assignments, leaving the work to others on Council. Texans have a name for this. Deadwood. Excess baggage. Expendible. Lazy bastard. 

With time on his hands Travis uses his official twitter account for extreme far right partisan politics. Some called for his removal after posting racist comments. Others called for his removal from his committee assignments but he voluntarily removed himself before shooting his mouth off. His latest tweet calls for installing cameras in classrooms to spy on teachers.

Travis will complete his time on Council as deadwood or will quit like the twitter coward he is. Until then he will continue to try to sow division instead of unity or solving problems. He will continue to disrupt just like his buddy, loser trump.

It's over. Qanon candidate for CCISD, Christine Parizo, loses recount.

May 20, 2021

Christine Parizo called for a recount after losing by 25 points in the Clear Creek Independent School District race. She lost again by 25 points. Parizo, in a now deleted press release, claimed the following about the Hart InterCivic Voting System:

  • Security researchers have reported that the Hart InterCivic voting system machines have many fundamental, built-in system vulnerabilities, including insecure computer network interfaces, improper use of cryptography, and susceptibility to malicious inputs; anyone with cursory knowledge of and access to the machines could quickly compromise or alter the results of an election
That along with other unsubstantiated claims might have led to a cease and desist letter from Hart InterCivic lawyers. This ridiculous, unnecessary recount should be the end of Parizo’s unsuccessful run to shape the lives of students in our community. A huge turnout in District 5 with 63% voting against Parizo should send a strong message to her. Unfortunately she hasn’t read it. 

Parizo is now going to change the focus of her Facebook page to encourage teacher policing. What’s next? Maybe pay students to become snitches? Lucky for these teachers and students Parizo lost. Bad. Maybe she should focus on running for another seat, like against Randy Weber. She is a perfect Qanon candidate.

Q sent her. Seriously. Christine Parizo demands a recount in CCISD elections. (She lost by 25 points!)

May 11, 2021

Christine Parizo is our own home grown Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Qanon right wing conspiracy nut of the Republican Party. According to her twitter account Christine is from League City. She is a “journalist” probably much like I am a “journalist” and owns some kind of B2B marketing business. She also likes coffee, probably in excess.

Christine ran for the Clear Creek Independent School Board and lost by a whopping 25 percentage points. In political lingo that is what Donald trump would call a landslide. And much like Donald trump she is now whining about the election being rigged. One of the points she has made is the turnout was very high for a school board race based on history of the elections. Maybe she just didn’t realize that most parents do not want a Quack on the school board, especially her so they did what they needed to do to keep her off. They voted.

So now Christine has sent out this press release claiming she wants a recount of the 2257 votes, 841 of those where hers. Maybe someone ought to ask those 841 voters if they had made a mistake. Enjoy the read! #NoPlaceButTexas.

Press Release: Christine for CCISD Campaign Files for Election Recount, Citing Numerous Irregularities

May 10, 2021

Campaign, in consultation with election integrity experts, asserts
results should be validated by direct examination of voting machine data

LEAGUE CITY (May 10, 2021) – The Christine for CCISD Campaign (aka Christine Parizo Student Success Committee) today filed state-mandated notification with Clear Creek ISD that it will seek a formal hand recount of the results in the election for the District 5 seat on the CCISD Board of Trustees.

Following a careful review of the election in consultation with election integrity experts, the Christine for CCISD Campaign has cited numerous election irregularities in the 2021 District 5 contest, including the following:

  • In the 2021 District 5 race, voter turnout more than tripled versus the most recent previous District 5 election (in 2018), while overall population growth for the voting area during that time has not matched that pace
  • Only 5% of the voters in the 2021 District 5 race voted in the 2018 District 5 election; many of the voters in the 2021 District 5 election have no record of voting in any previous election, CCISD or otherwise
  • The total number of votes cast in District 5 on Election Day reported by CCISD does not match the total number of District 5 votes cast on Election Day as reported in the voter roster CCISD posted online following the election
  • An election integrity expert who observed the tallying process on behalf of the Christine for CCISD Campaign reported that three of the Hart InterCivic voting system machines used to cast ballots did not have corresponding internal paperwork that matched their external validation seals; such a discrepancy is often a sign of election tampering
  • Security researchers have reported that the Hart InterCivic voting system machines have many fundamental, built-in system vulnerabilities, including insecure computer network interfaces, improper use of cryptography, and susceptibility to malicious inputs; anyone with cursory knowledge of and access to the machines could quickly compromise or alter the results of an election
  • CCISD’s tallying process ultimately requires data to be manually entered into a spreadsheet, creating the opportunity for human or machine calculation errors

A hand recount requires that ballot cast data directly from the electronic voting systems is printed out, and then counted by hand. Per Texas state law, candidates may request hand recounts on electronic votes for any reason.

“The voters of District 5 have a fundamental right to know, without any uncertainty, who won this election,” said Eric Parizo, Campaign Manager for the Christine for CCISD Campaign. “Considering the numerous abnormalities in this election, as well as CCISD’s highly questionable if not outright hostile conduct toward our campaign during the course of this race, there is no question that a recount is the only course of action to ensure the integrity of the results.”

Earlier in the campaign, the Christine for CCISD Campaign filed a formal school board electioneering complaint against the Clear Creek Independent School District with the Office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton as well as the Texas Secretary of State. That complaint, filed March 22, 2021, alleged that CCISD Board of Trustees President Dr. Laura DuPont authorized CCISD Chief Communications Officer Elaina Polsen to interfere in the May 2021 CCISD Board of Trustees election on behalf of James J. Cunningham, District 5 Trustee and candidate for reelection.

In light of the pending electioneering complaint and to ensure fair treatment, the Christine for CCISD Campaign is formally requesting that Dr. DuPont relinquish any oversight role in the recount process to Trustee and Board Secretary Arturo Sanchez.

“Our campaign believes it is in the best interest of the voters and the district to avoid any appearance of impropriety during the recount process, hence we believe Mr. Sanchez is best positioned to serve as recount oversight officer,” Eric Parizo said.”

The Christine for CCISD Campaign would like to express its sincere gratitude to its many voters and supporters within and beyond District 5, so many of whom warmly embraced Success for Every Student as not only a slogan, but also a call to action.

“Regardless of the outcome, our mission to do what’s right for students, families, and taxpayers will never end as long as it lives on in the hearts and minds of those in our community,” Eric Parizo said. “While we are confident that the data directly from the voting machines, once examined, will tell a very different story than the one told on election night, the undeniable legacy of this campaign will be the fight for fairness, transparency, and integrity – values we all want for our community and our schools.”

Any further updates from the Christine for CCISD Campaign will be posted directly to the campaign website,

Qanon loser in CCISD elections calls for a recount

May 10, 2021

You really can’t make this up. I was wondering when one of the Q republicans was going to claim the election was rigged. Well it didn’t take long:

Stephanie Parizo didn’t lose by a few points. She lost by 25%. She lost in a landslide, just like Trump. Now she is acting like trump and whining about the election being rigged. Look for Ted Cruz to come in to support her stupidity. Maybe she will lead an insurrection on CCISD.
Sore loser.
