Death Before Taxes

I went over to Bubba’s last night for BBQ and had to suffer through an hour of Bill O’Reilly. A full straight hour of anything on FOX NEWS is not easy for a person of mind. But I did learn that the main topic of the Bill O’Reilly Show is – no surprise – Bill…

The Only Good Liberal is a Dead Liberal

There are endless examples of Rush Limbaugh opening up the darkness inherent in the conservative heart for all to see. His rise to syndication was due to the notoriety he gained in Sacramento where he would read off the names of men who died of AIDS and hit the applause button. There is the giddy…

Gamblin’ on Kinky

As Bubba and I finished watching the Texas Gubernatorial debate, he recanted on his recent promise to pull a straight Democratic ticket come election day.  Kinky Freidman had won him over,  running as an Independent, Bubba will have to push each lever separately. Quite a complicated process for a redneck who has been pulling straight…

Beware the Freeper

I had myself one good yuck a few minutes ago. I surfed over to the Modern Library where they have the list of the best 100 books written in English. I need a new book, sadly for the fifth time now,  I couldn’t get past page 14 of ULYSSES. That is number one you know. …

Turncoat Bubba

Just got a call from Bubba, he said he had something important to tell me, a nice surprise he added. It was my turn to go to his house which wasn’t far and in the same general white area I reside in. He had the garage door open and was drinking a beer knocking balls…

Dirty Rotten Republicans – Part 2

The Abramoff Affair in itself is not much of an issue; Jack Abbamoff, Michael Scanlon and Ralph Reed were just a trio of get rich quick lobbyist crooks. The importance was that the investigation into the Indian Casino scam opened up the door  on how these Right-wing lunatics took over America and held it for 12 long…

Dirty Rotten Republicans part 3

The day the Gingrich Revolution began, Tom Delay let it be known that if the lobbyists on K Street wanted the ear of the House of Representatives they would have to pay dearly for it. They were required to cease donations to Democrats and to hence forth hire their lobbyists (for six and seven figure salaries)…

Damn Queers!

I invited Bubba over for a beer to watch the hummingbirds on my new jungle patio. So jungle it is, that I often find myself breaking out in high pitched jungle noises to add to the ambience. After we had downed more than a few beers watching their shenanigans, we remaned them “Little Bastards” watching…

The CBS/Bill Maher Brouhaha

CBS has removed Limbaugh’s Free Speech segment from Youtube. If you would like to see it, it is within my Pigistory Video present on the website. Katy Couric began her first week as anchor for CBS EVENING NEWS bringing Rush Limbaugh to her Free Speech segment. If you watching a flatulent addict makes calling you names…

Immutable Cause

Is Conservatism Genetic? Many years ago when this was all in a print newsletter called The Journal of Hard Response, I put my tongue in cheek and wrote a piece linked above. The other day I happened upon several articles that cited studies which gave that old article some degree of gravitas. Of the many…

Texas Ice House XI

From the Oval Office through the vast red majority of our hinterlands, the driving force of American Christianity has purposefully removed the blessedness of the peacemakers, the inheritance of the meek, the compassion for the outcast, the first stone throwers, the cheek turning, the money changing, the eye of the needle and universal forgiveness in…

Texas Ice House X

On my way to Jesus’ Ice House to meet Bubba for the first presidential debate between George Bush and John Kerry I became ensnarled in a dead stop traffic jam. Living between two lakes meant at least a half hour roundabout trip to my date which was less than a mile head. I got out…
