Wednesday, May 17, 2017 – WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?

To ensure I do not plagiarize the Former First Lady, Michelle Obama, I hereby give her credit for the following question she asked during a recent TV interview:


Unless you just crawled from under a rock you know the nation is under siege with Blabbergate. Channeling in my first period J. L. McCullough 9th Grade American History Class this morning from 1978 (I think – or any of my history classes), they would have reminded me that the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution could be a faster court house road to removal from office. You can read it for yourself, but the 25th Amendment is the “Removal from office because you are an idiot” Amendment.

Meanwhile back in Texas, the Lt. Governor and self-appointed Evangelical Saint of Bathroom Protection, Dan Patrick is holding the Texas Senate, certain state agencies and even the Governor’s office HOSTAGES. Here are his two of demands:

  • Public school funding bills will be held hostage and not passed in the Texas Senate in exchange for a special needs voucher legislation.
  • Governor Abbot will call as many special sessions as it takes to pass property tax and transgender bathroom bills.

What does this mean? Here’s what I’m thinking.

Public school administrators will not be able to set local budgets because they will not know how much money they will receive.

Under proposed legislation parents of special education students would be forced to give up their child’s IDEA protections. IDEA protections are guaranteed under law passed in 1975 – The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

School voucher legislation are repeated attempts to remove Federal involvement in schools and it promotes segregation based on race, economic status, and special needs of students.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Statute The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation. IDEA governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to more than 6.5 million eligible infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities. https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/osers/osep/osep-idea.html

Moving on. How much will my property taxes go up when there are “as many special legislative sessions as needed” called to determine where to pee? Sorry, I have doctorate degree – where to urinate.

Help me understand, Paddy the Evangelical. You do not want the Federal government telling parents of special needs children what to do, but you are OK with the State government telling people where to go to the bathroom?


God Bless, Texas and keep your voter registration card current!

Monday, July 25, 2016 – Notes From the Democratic National Convention

Monday, July 25, 2016 – Notes From the Democratic National Convention

Right off the gavel “Within minutes, CNN was reporting that the DNC Rules Committee had relieved Wasserman Schultz of her role as convention chair and replaced her with Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge. “ Really? The Democratic National Convention RULES Committee is now chaired by a woman whose last name is Fudge? As in Fudge the Rules?

What is on the agenda tonight?

The first guess speaker at tonight’s Democratic National Convention is Charlie Brown’s teacher. Let’s listen to a portion of what she will say.

Wha wha wha; Blah, blah, blah;Wha wha wha wha; Blah.

Can’t wait to hear more of that tonight. There are other big political names scheduled to speak tonight. Michelle Obama also takes the podium this evening. I wonder if she will plagarize Melania Trump’s speech.

One never knows, but it sounds as though the indoors will be boring. It is the outdoors that is going to be interesting. What year is this? 1968 all over again? Where are we? Chicago? Is this one of the flashbacks our parents warned us about? (J. Buffet)  Or am I witnessing history repeat itself? YIPPIE(S)!

According to Yahoo, planned protests include:

Some will call for voters to “deregister” from the major parties. Some are planning to block thoroughfares used to transport delegates to and from the arena. Some will be staging a “Mock Trial of Hillary Clinton.” Some are willing to be arrested.

Some will be marching a 51-foot inflatable marijuana joint from City Hall to the Wells Fargo Center.

That takes some really big Zig Zags! I cannot wait to see that in high definition!

Regardless of how one feels about the soon not to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, you must admit you will witness history.
