On why I actually like Conservatives as a Border and Budget Libertarian.
I usually do not mind being around Conservatives. We have many common values, we usually dress similarly, and we generally have good manners. With Conservatives I usually can expect certain things. Before I go on I need to say I am referring to the Conservatives in Brit Hume’s documentary “Right, all along” on Fox News and I am not adding my note on that, which | Read More »
Thoughts and suggestions for dealing with the Queer Homo agenda; Setting some folks straight.
Not for whimps or pantywaists. A humorous introduction that leads into some very serious points. I seem somewhat provincial to many people and, while I try, I don’t always keep up with current events the way I should. For a long time I was unaware there was a Gay Agenda. I would actually ridicule the term when I heard or saw it being used. I | Read More »

I am now finding it means or is used for a great many things, some of which I find unusual uses of the word. I do know what | Read More »
Senator Kay may need to come home.
Nov.16th, 2010 Corpus Christi, TX Now I like Senator Kay and the two times I met her she was very nice to me. I was surprised that she spoke to me so long the second time we were in the same room. I don’t now and never have agreed with her on every single thing. I like her though. What impressed me about this | Read More »
Texas District 27: Some Very Important aspects of a polarized district and a contested Congressional Seat; with links for independent study.
Nov. 15th, 2010 Many could say Texas District 27 is a polarized district. That observation would be correct in multiple ways. This District has two areas that compete for Federal Dollars. These two areas are at opposite ends of the District. The one at the district’s northern end is Corpus Christi and the Texas Coastal Bend. At the extreme southern end, on the border of | Read More »
A good review for Senator Jim DeMint.
Nov 14th, 2010 Corpus Christi, TX, USA Up until the day of this writing I did not know too much about this gentleman. I had certainly heard the name. The first time, to my recollection, was in relation to that election in South Carolina. That was unusual, even by the standards of the Southland. This was no reflection on the Senator by any means, just | Read More »

Nov.15th, 2010 These last days of 2010 are a busy time both up in Washington, D.C. as well as for folks cleaning up messes on the local level like here in TX 27.

Common Desires obtained through different ways: Some items of current Anti-Progressive humor that are up for review.
Before we begin I offer this diary on humor, happily, up for commentary, review, and good jokes regarding Progressives. I stole one of them from this website. I own up to whom at the end of this part of the diary. People often desire and achieve the same things different ways. Sometimes they bond together to achieve common things. It’s great when everyone helps out. | Read More »
On the Election of 2010 and being a deviant.
I want you to try something that a large majority of people (according to the ratings) would find disgusting, damaging, and, well, rather sick. Until you start liking it. I’ll explain. As most people can investigate I am openly Libertarian and make no apologies. As we all know Libertarians are perverts and not true Conservatives. Even other Libertarians know this. Now here’s what I want | Read More »

Corpus Christi Nov,2 2010 (12:02 am) Texas District 27, which extends down the Texas Gulf Coast to the Rio Grande River, has now been declared a official toss up by Real Clear Politics.

TX District 27: Media Cloud lifts, briefly, as District 27 braces for unexpected cliffhanger.
Corpus Christi, TX November 1, 2010 Just a day after early voting, local Corpus Christi* newspaper, The Corpus Christi-Caller Times revealed important, but accidentally over looked by it’s staff, news to an election weary electorate. It turns out, after all, maybe the election was a little bit, just a tiny bit, closer than they originally thought. Some interesting shifts in some unfortunately delayed polling data | Read More »
TX. District 27- Awaiting a change in the weather, Farenthold gets smeared in local voter’s guide.
Corpus Christi, TX Nov,1 2010 A small but influential publication in Corpus Christi, TX known as “We the People” is an interesting contrast in style. A quick look reveals American Flags, graphics of the Constitution and Bald Eagles. Then there’s the name of course. Appearances can be misleading. Inside presents a different picture. A stunning example is ‘We the People’s informative voter guide. While all of | Read More »

South Texas Election Shenanigans; an update… of sorts.
A recent conversation with a local reporter brought up some interesting and to many, valid points. The local media is aware of the reports of election irregularities. Substantiating many of these claims is difficult because of the lack of corroborative evidence such as video or audio recordings or observations of a person such as authorized poll watcher. Reporting unsubstantiated claims and allegations would be irresponsible. | Read More »
The new B-word; a thing of Joy!
In honor of Joy Behar’s stunning achievement of becoming the living emblem of Progressivist – Pseudoliberal behavior I created a word in her honor. The new word is ‘behar’. While I haven’t worked out a precise definition it indicates something that is rude and hypocritical combined with a theatrical flair. It could be used in many ways as in telling someone to stop the behar. | Read More »
Update on Texas District 27 race – Good news for the (R)’s
Two items that may give Nueces County conservatives reason to hope.

The second is the current results of a poll conducted by KIII-TV, the local ABC affiliate, which has the following stats: People who are | Read More »

Ortiz-Farenthold race may be tighter than previously thought.
The race for Texas Congressional District 27 may be tighter than previously thought. Polling data is virtually impossible to find on this race. The local media simply assumes Ortiz (D) will retain his long held seat and devotes very little time to the race. Some signs have surfaced that may give Farenthold (R) some hope. Ortiz, who held the seat for 27 years in this | Read More »
