Recap of the CCISD board meeting community input. OMG!

August 23, 2022

UPDATE: Video of the community input section of the Board Meeting has been posted here.

After the 4th or 5th speaker she leaned over and said “I’m getting dumber just listening to this stuff”.

OMG. The Scott Bowen Bunch was out in force last night during the community input section of the board meeting. I have to hand it to the CCISD Board Members for having the professionalism to not roll their eyes or fall out of their chairs while listening to the vast white wing conspiracies being spouted off by the speakers.

The speakers included a lady wearing a military green t-shirt with an AR15 printed on it, someone using her time to say a prayer over her bible to her Lord Jesus Christ, and a “Dr” saying “After all it is one nation UNDER GOD” her emphasis. (By the way, “Under god” was added to the pledge of allegiance in 1954 and is not in any founding documents of the US Government.) There was also return speakers (like myself) spewing their new list of fake issues. (not like myself. LOL)

Prior to Trustee Scott Bowen’s crusade for board domination the speakers came to discuss class room sizes, bus schedules, redistricting, and other important issues. Now a small white wing group seem to have marching orders spewing the latest conspiracy like racism, election fraud, CRT, SEL, EIEIO, and bashing our LGBTQ friends and families.

Not every speaker was spewing stupidity. A few took to the microphone to praise the teachers and to offer the support of their organizations to enhance the education of students in CCISD. They should be commended for their positive words and professionalism.

Texas Republicans issue threats to election workers…in red districts

August 19, 2022

It’s all fun and games to Greg Abbott until someone gets hurt.

According to KXAN all the election workers in Gillespie County, a county that is gunshot, bleeding red, have resigned due to threats and stalking by Republican MAGAts. Governor Abbott and the entire Republican Party have shown their support of the threats with their deafening silence and constant spewing of conspiracy stupidity. With just three months before the election the county is now scrambling to replace the workers and conduct a safe and secure election.

It should be concerning to the Mexican MAGAts, who think they are republicans, that Latinos are the focus of these threats. It’s typical of the Republican Party to claim they are courting the Latino vote then threaten and stalk Latinas running the elections. According to KXAN:

“The year 2020 was when I got the death threats,” [Gillespie County Elections Administrator Anissa] Herrera told the Post. “It was enough that I reached out to our county attorney, and it was suggested that I forward it to FPD (Fredericksburg Police Department) and the sheriff’s office.”

A Thursday report from the U.S. House Oversight Committee showed similar threats to Tarrant County Elections Administrator Heider Garcia, who sent a letter to representatives about violent threats made to both himself and his children.

Gillespie county is about as red as it gets and includes the cities of Fredericksburg, Stonewall, and Luchenbach (where ain’t nobody feeling no pain). The threats and stalking are coming from the constant lies about voter fraud and rigged elections by Trump and the Republican Party. Eventually someone will get killed, the Republican Party will blame it on someone else, and we will all forget about it without doing something to stop it.

Just like we did after El Paso, Santa Fe, and the Uvalde massacres.

The last conservative has left the Republican Party

August 16, 2022

The Last Conservative

Congresswoman Liz Cheney, a model Conservative, is out of the Republican Party with her looming defeat in the Wyoming Republican Primary.

Congresswoman Cheney is predicted to be soundly defeated by a MAGAt endorsed by Trump. Cheney was just one of a handful of true Conservatives who voted to impeach Trump after he extorted the President of Ukraine and lead an insurrection against our Country on Jan 6 all while the cowards of the party remained silent.

Cheney is a model Conservative. She truly deserves the title “Honorable”. You won’t hear her calling people names or making racist comments like referring to someone as “Pocahontas” or referring to African nations as shit hole nations. She isn’t an asshole like Congressman Gym Jordon. She isn’t a coward like Senator Ted Cruz or Josh Hawley. She isn’t a liar like Trump. She believes in the rule of law. She has real conservative values and she conducts herself as someone who has earned the title “Honorable”.

She isn’t a republican and the Republican Party isn’t conservative. They are just republicans. Kowards. Korrupt. Khaotic. The KKK. The KKK doesn’t deserve Congresswoman Liz Cheney.

The new GOP.

Local Representative attends extreme white wing event

August 9, 2022
Dennis Paul
State Representative Dennis Paul

This is disturbing.

Local State Representative Dennis Paul attended a meeting at the Hampton inn in Webster, Texas, by the “True Texas Project” an organization labeled as an extremist anti-government group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. According to the Houston Chronicle this group was banned from a local church:

Leaders of Webster Presbyterian Church, where astronaut Buzz Aldrin is a “ruling elder,” banned far-right political group True Texas Project from holding events in their meeting spaces and removed the group’s events from its calendar last week, according to texts and emails obtained by Chron. Houston Chronicle July 22, 2022

The all white attendees listened to Paul and State Senator Paul Bettencourt talk about “Igniting the spirit of the original Texians”. Who are the Texians? “Texians were Anglo-American residents of Mexican Texas and, later, the Republic of Texas.” Wikipedia. Just an FYI for you white wing history deniers:

Mexico invited white people to come and settle in what later became Texas. All they asked was for them to learn the language and become citizens. Instead they decided to steal the land, with 200 military idiots picking a fight with 1500 well armed Mexican soldiers in San Antonio. They were killed and their bodies burned.

According to True Texas’ website, “We believe in Constitutional government, national sovereignty, fiscal responsibility, personal responsibility, and rule of law.” Paul is an election denier. He doesn’t believe Biden is the duly elected President. He doesn’t take personal responsibility for the COVID response disaster leading to the death of his own friends or the 19 children killed in Uvalde because of easy access to assault weapons. And “the rule of law” is nothing but a punch line to him and his party.

True Texas is mainly funded by the billionaires identified by CNN in “Deep in the Pockets of Texas”, Timothy Dunn, and Defend Texas Liberty PAC funded by Dunn and Wilks. Their top donors Include:

Empower Texans PAC25,000.00
Defend Texas Liberty PAC24,731.97

Why Dennis Paul would attend such as extremist organization says a lot about him. Maybe Paul can arrange a meeting space for them at his own church, St Bernadettes.

The Republican Party returns to it’s roots: Khaos. Korruption. Kruelty.

August 6, 2022

Back in 1992 I watched the entire Republican Convention. I remember saying “Phil Gramm bored me. Pat Robertson scared the crap out of me.” Today’s Republican Party attending the CPAC convention should terrify everyone.

CPAC used to be a convention for conservatives, people who believed in respect, honor, and dignity. It was the rally convention for the Republican Party. Today it’s more like the KKK representing the party with Khaos, Korruption, and Kruelty.

Greg Abbott spoke at the convention and gave a standing ovation to their speaker, the extreme far right Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban who warned about mixing races, the gay community, non-whites, and non-christians among other racist topics. The speech was nothing but racist.  

The convention showed that the Republican Party has returned to it’s true roots of the KKK. They are nothing but Khaos, spewing lies about election fraud when they lose. They cause chaos just for the sake of causing chaos. They lie about everything and when faced with facts, they simply double down on the lies knowing their base are too lazy to research. 

They are Korrupt with many running for office with felony indictments like our State Attorney General Ken Paxton. They are running to the defense of over 800 charged with the assault on our capitol on Jan 6. They turn a blind eye to those who are breaking the law just as long as they are on their side.

And they are simply Kruel. Republicans love to intimidate, allowing 18 year olds to buy assault weapons and walk in public with them. They vilify those that seek a better life here in the United States. They separate children from their mothers. They talk tough. They act tough but are actually cowards like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley running away when faced with conflict. They enjoy pushing the envelope on decency, common sense, and honor. They are racist.

This is the old Republican Party. This is the new Republican Party.

Hispanic Caucus at the Texas Democratic Convention

July 15, 2022

Another large and enthusiastic crowd at the Hispanic Caucus.

Luckily they put party business before speeches electing two State Democratic Executive Committee (SDEC) members and then passing a resolution to endorse current Chair Gilberto Hinojosa before adjourning.

Although the vast majority of members loudly supported Hinojosa there were pockets that were not. No one nominated either of the other two candidates so it is hard to gauge his support but it does seem to be pretty solid, but not completely. We heard from Carroll Robinson and he seemed to have a solid argument for a change in leadership. I look forward to hearing Kim Olson speak.

Many of the speakers talked about the strength of the Hispanic vote unfortunately over the last few elections Hispanics have not voted their strength. I have seen this party work on issues that are core to the Hispanic community for years, decades, and yet they do not vote their strength. If they would no one who makes fun of our language would ever hold office again. No one who puts a target on our backs because of our skin color would ever hold office again. Yet….they do not vote their strength. 

Personally I have no idea WTF they are waiting for. Their kids have been shot. Their electricity cut off. They are targeted by white supremacy groups. Their home insurance, electricity, taxes, home prices have skyrocketed. WTLF are they waiting for?

WHAT THE F*CK? Greg Abbott poses with indicted Proud Boys leader

June 12, 2022

What the living f*ck is happening in Texas?

First we have a Republican candidate for the Texas Senate, Bianca Gracia, meeting with the Proud Boys leader, Enrique Tarrios and Elmer Stewart Rhodes the leader of the Oathkeepers a day before the Jan 6 insurrection. Both have been indicted for seditious conspiracy which if convicted would put them in jail for 20 years.

Now the “conservative” Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has been photographed with Joe Biggs, a leading figure in the Proud Boys organization. Biggs has also been indicted for seditious conspiracy and could face 20 years in prison. Seditious Conspiracy is defined as:

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

It doesn’t matter if he took the pic prior to the indictment. The bottom line is he took a pic with Joe Biggs an extreme white wing nut. What the living f*ck was he thinking and what does this have to do with Hunter Biden? Abbott is more crippled than we ever thought.

What does the (R) stand for behind a political candidates name?

May 18, 2022

(R) Racist.

Enough with being nice about this. We need to say it and say it loud. If you are running as a republican then you need to own the title. When you stand silent while racism runs rampant in your own party then you need to embrace the title. When you stand silent and allow racists to take over your party then you need to wear it and wear it with pride. Unfortunately many are doing just that.

The Republican latest racist dog whistle, following the racist dog whistle “CRT” issue, is now the Great Replacement Theory which claims minorities are being bussed into the United States to replace racist white folks and those in the Republican Party. Now I understand what the Republican Party’s chant of “Jews will not replace us!” means.

The GRT that Fox News and Tucker Carlson promoted played a significant role in the Buffalo shooting where a well armed, radical, racist, gun nut killed 10 African Americans and yet the leaders of the party stand silent, or are using GRT as a campaign talking point. They have stood silent as the leader of their party refers to Native Americans as Pocahontas, Mexicans as rapists, Muslims as terrorists, Asians as virus speakers, and nazis as “good people”. 

So, what does the (R) stand for behind a political candidate running for office? Own the title.

Mexican MAGAts running for office: Vidal Martinez, Richard Vera, and Bianca Grancia

February 27, 2022

It’s embarrassing.

The Republican Party has worked hard to recruit Mexican MAGAts to run for office. One is running for Harris County Judge (Vidal Martinez), another is running for Harris County Commissioner (Richard Vera), and another for Senate District 11 (Bianca Grancia). 

Mexican MAGAts have endorsed the values of the Republican Party including making fun of disabled people and fucking a porn star, paying her off, and lying about it. They endorse making comments about African nations calling them shitholes, referring to Native Americans as “Pocahontas”, siding with white supremacists, Nazis, and pushing the envelope with white wing racist remarks. They endorse lying on a daily basis, referring to women as c*nts, and siding with dictators like Putin. They place blame on those from south of the border for all the ills of the country while their white republican buddies laugh behind their backs, blaming them for all the ills of the country. They endorse elected officials acting like a bunch of assholes, spewing hate, and dividing their constituents. They endorse lying, cheating, and stealing. They endorse flooding our streets with guns. They endorse the cowards who run in the face of danger such as Texas Senator Ted Cruz. 

These are not the values of most Mexican Americans. These are not the values of most human beings. These are the values of the republican party. The party of the biggest racist, asshole in political history, Donald Trump.

Tio Tomases have their nose buried up trump’s ass. That’s another thing we don’t value. We don’t kiss ass and we don’t tolerate those who do.

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.
