Brussels and #NeverTrump

As I awoke this morning to the news of the multiple attacks in Brussels, a lot of things rushed to mind. Not only sympathy for our friends in Belgium, but a reminder of how much worse it could be in this War on Terror. Every time I hear about a…

Becoming a National Republican Delegate from Texas

The Republican National Convention has held few surprises in recent years.  By the time the convention occurred, the candidate has garnered enough delegates to win the nomination long before, and the delegate voting on the floor of the convention hasn’t mattered much beyond being a formality.  Delegates assemble at the…

I Pledge…

A little over a month ago I became a huge fan of Neal McCoy.  Before then, I had no idea who he was.  Not a clue.  I didn’t know he was the Entertainer of the Year, 1998 & 1999 at the TNN/Music City News Country Awards.  I couldn’t tell you…

Convention Basics for Texas

This election year is starting out with a crowded Republican field and a lot of first-time primary voters.  It’s wonderful to see new faces in the political process, and folks like me who have been around the block a few times should try to help those people understand as much…

The Trump Nomination

Megan McArdle posed this challenge on Twitter today: Reminder: Republicans who will stay home or vote for another party for 1st time if it’s Trump, I want your stories! mmcardle3@bloomberg.net — Megan McArdle (@asymmetricinfo) February 28, 2016 I felt I had to try to answer it. Megan, I’m an eighteen…

Je Suis Establishment

These days, whenever certain people on the rightward end of the spectrum disagree with me, I’m called a RINO or part of the Establishment.  And you know what? They’re damned right I’m part of the Establishment. I started getting involved in my mid-twenties.  I attended one meeting at church on…

Operation Chaos

Oh, You’re Sorry, Are You?

My friend Brittany Pounders has a scathing ‘task-taking-to’ for some of the ‘leaders’ of conservatism posted at Liberty Juice today.  It’s a really solid narration of some of the debates, arguments, and abuse she (and others like her, including myself) have been engaged in or subject to in this election…

Love your Enemy

My friend Toby Marie Walker asked an interesting question on Facebook recently: Do you think God counts hating the IRS as a sin? Now  I DO hate the IRS as an instrument of corruption and tyranny, and equate it in my religious thinking to the jackwagons in the temple whose…

Prima Donna Politics

There’s this kid in one of my drama classes.  He interrupts rehearsals.  He talks out of turn all the time.  He says whatever is on his mind, whenever he wants, regardless of the appropriateness at the time.  He talks about how he doesn’t want to be in the class at…

Tough Love Or “Tough Titties”?

It must SUCK to be a Democrat during the 2016 primary season. All their decisions, as usual, have been made for them. No room for differences of opinion; just a one way train to Hillary. Thankfully, we are NOT on the Left.  We actually have the ability (and DUTY) to…
