Here’s why the Dallas News Editorial Board recommended John Cornyn over his many, Many, MANY teabagging challengers:
South Texas businessman Chris Mapp, 53, told this editorial board that ranchers should be allowed to shoot on sight anyone illegally crossing the border on to their land, referred to such people as “wetbacks,” and called the president a “socialist son of a bitch.” Ken Cope, 60, a retired aerospace executive, wants to build a fence along the entire border and deport anyone who fails to learn English. U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman has run a clownish campaign with the baseless claim that Cornyn supports the Affordable Care Act.
Attorney Linda Vega, 47, and small-business owners Dwayne Stovall, 48, Curt Cleaver, 47, also are on the ballot. They didn’t respond to interview requests, and their questionnaire answers give us pause about their ability to lead. Reid Reasor neither attended the interview nor filled out the questionnaire.
“I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level.”
“Since the terrible tragedy that took four American lives in Benghazi, we’ve had difficulty, to put it mildly, trying to get to the bottom of this. Now the goal is to talk to the Benghazi survivors – people who were actually there who could tell the truth and expose what happened and hold the people responsible accountable. This has been a cover up from the very beginning.”
–Sen. John Conryn (R-TX), vying for some sweet, sweet Ted Cruz mojo teabagger support.
“President Obama should take his broken promises tour elsewhere so Texans can continue focusing on the solutions that have allowed our state to become and remain the nation’s economic and job creation powerhouse.”
–Ted Cruz, who seems to be unaware of the sad history of Presidents in Dallas in November or who is perhaps dog whistling again? It’s still in bad taste and poor form. Texas is better than this.
Alex Jones’ InfoWars informs us that the the new world order is on its way to take over the Alamo for China and France.
There is not enough coffee in the world that could make this premise any more funny, so I’ll stop here.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — North Texas police are investigating a canine caper that left a dog owner with a shotgun wound.
The dog was ambling about its Fort Worth home Saturday night when it knocked over a shotgun leaning near the homeowner. The gun discharged when it fell to the ground, striking the 78-year-old woman in the left foot as she watched television.

In the late hours Friday night, the Texas legislature passed HB2, the bill that effectively closes most abortion clinics in the state and severely limits the right and access to safe, legal abortion for Texas women. The vote was almost exclusively along party lines.
More than 2000 demonstrator protested the bill, and the state troopers forcibly removed 6 people from the chambers for disrupting the proceedings.
Democrats have vowed to continue the fight:
“All they have done is built a committed group of people across this state who are outraged about the treatment of women and the lengths to which this Legislature will go to take women’s health care away,” said Cecile Richards, the daughter of former Gov. Anne Richards and president of Planned Parenthood.

The Xristian Xrazies in that state are now empowered. I wonder which Biblical laws they will want enacted next?
You’ll want to celebrate the fourth with a fifth after you listen to…

Texas Legislator Claims Rape Kits Are A Form Of Abortion
“In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out.”
–Rep. Jody Laubenberg, R-Parker
No wonder the Xristian Xrazies believe in immaculate conception, they think that collecting evidence (hospital staff collect bodily fluid, residue under the victim’s nails, and any blood or hair samples that could be relevant for a Police investigation) rape kits are Plan B, and so when a baby shows up 9 months later, well, it is another miracle.
