Those Austin Bombings Could have Been “Prevented”

by Steve MacDonald April 2, 2018

We didn’t cover the subject of the Austin Bomber (at all) but I think this sums it up nicely.

Fifth Circuit Court Sides With Trump and Texas On Sanctuary Cities

by Steve MacDonald March 14, 2018

There are not a lot of things the Federal Government should be doing but border enforcement and National Security are one of them (or is that two of them?). But progressives are loathe to part with their illegal voter base even when it comes with violence, human trafficking, gangs, murder, and mayhem. And if we are being […]

Maybe That Texas “Wave” Meant, Bye, Bye

by Ed Naile March 8, 2018

Leftist groups had the media and pollsters showing a huge Democrat, and whoever else they let vote, turnout in Texas. The hype, as usual, was that Texas is finally going to turn left and vote for socialism. But that isn’t what happened. The Democrats spent like crazy, hyped like crazy, acted crazy, and still they […]

Blogline of the Day – must be dismal to be folks always throwing the race card at everything

by Skip March 2, 2018

I’M SORRY, BUT IF YOUR FIRST THOUGHT UPON SEEING A STATUE OF A GORILLA INVOLVES BLACK PEOPLE, then you’re the racist. It took the townfolks to protest this stupidity to get it put back. A statue of a gorilla in a community playground was removed because some people found the children’s plaything racially insensitive. The gorilla, which […]

Pine Tree Ramblings – Vol 5

by Tom February 21, 2018

Church and School.  Two places where a lot of shootings take place.  Both are relatively gun-free zones, one mandated by law, the other by sense.  Although, there are no gun-free zones wherever I am. Anyhow, two recent shootings have occurred in these places and have something else in common: Dropped Balls and Missed Opportunities. In […]

Hurricane Sandy Hook and Governor Crispy

by Steve MacDonald September 1, 2017

New Hampshire can rest easy knowing that Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is not the dumbest member of congress. Glenn Reynolds suggested it could be at least a 100-way tie when linking to a story from the Free Beacon about one of the leading contenders for the “honor.” A woman who once complained that Hurricane names were […]

Reaching Out to Texas

by Ellen Kolb August 29, 2017

The news coverage of the epic flooding in Texas leaves me overwhelmed. It’s good to hear about relief efforts that let those of us at a distance reach out with practical help. I’m sure your inbox and social media feeds are full of appeals which you’ll respond as you’re able. Here are a few that touched […]

Gee, NFL, how’d this work out for Target, eh?

by Skip February 11, 2017

The quick answer is that it hasn’t – when Target decided that it was going to make their bathroom basically unisex (“ollie, ollie, come on in home free”), it started a backlash from conservatives and traditionalists that didn’t want women to be forced to share the women’s bathrooms with men (especially the perverts proclaiming to […]

Clockhmed and Mohamed Mohamed get SLAPPed!

by Steve MacDonald January 16, 2017

Do you remember Clockhmed? Ahmed “Clock-Boy” Mohamed brought a ‘device’ to school that had the see-something-say-something crowd thinking bomb. He was arrested and suspended, and became the talk of the nation. Was it a misunderstanding or a ploy to tease an anti-Muslim narrative? Whatever the plan was Ahmed’s father Mohamed Mohamed launched a series of defamation […]

Wine Bottles Fit in the Cup Holder?

by Steve MacDonald October 28, 2016

If a 260-pound linebacker decides he feels like a woman, he can use the ladies changing room at Target, but he cannot “objectify women” even while he claims to be one. Objectifying women is a crime against the Social Justice State unless you are a natural woman objectifying yourself. Then it’s okey-dokey. Except when it’s […]

Substandard care for women is now a Constitutional right

by Ellen Kolb June 28, 2016

Remember Gosnell? (If you don’t, let Skip remind you.) Among the laws passed in some states in the wake of Kermit Gosnell’s conviction was Texas’s H.B. 2, which included requirements that abortion providers have hospital admitting privileges and that abortion facilities meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical facilities. Five Supreme Court Justices have tossed […]

by Ellen Kolb June 14, 2016

Today, a Texas judge threw out one of the charges. Coincidentally, the dismissal follows […]

Wendy Davis has admitted to lying to her electorate in pursuit of political power. Refreshing, sure, but not surprising. They all lie. This entire (Davis) article is a clear admission that she lied to everyone about an important decision in the hopes of winning an election. And if she had somehow been the victor, there […]

From a Conservative Blogger inside Texas, on Governor Rick Perry He was a champion on pro-Life issues, and he never raised taxes (in a consequential manner) or made pre-K an emergency item. In partisan fights against the Democrats, he was a reliable ally. Unfortunately, both in Texas and Nationally, the most important fights are no […]

Texas is booming – thank cheap energy!

The money part was the focus – but it was the last line that should catch EVERYONE’s attention (and then think about it) The economists had predicted just last year that they expected the total economic impact to South Texas to be $89 billion in 2022. Instead, they now estimate that the impact has already […]

Toyota is moving from California to Texas

by Skip April 28, 2014

And so did my company just a bit ago! Yeah California – you moved a company that US-based itself in California since it came here from Japan in the 1950’s.  I guess the mounting taxes and regulations made it easy to hear the siren sound of Gov. Rick Perry’s call for a more business friendly environment […]
