At a time when all liberty loving Texans are concerned with the worrisome growth in federal law enforcement resources and domestic spying, do we really need to add more federal “cops” for any purpose – even mass deportation?   Read more »

  • Each year, on March 2, Texans celebrate a uniquely Texan holiday—Texas Independence Day. It marks the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence at the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos. And while March 2 is indeed the day Texans declared their independence, it was in fact the 18-minute battle that occurred several weeks later, on April 21, that cemented that declaration and established the Republic of Texas.

    This year will mark the 178th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, perhaps observed nowhere more closely than on the grounds of the San Jacinto Monument and San Jacinto Museum of History in La Porte, Texas.   Read more »

    Anyone observing this debate knows that global warming has slowed over the past seventeen years and we are witnessing a pause in the warming process that occurred from the mid-70’s to the mid 90’s. The advocates are scrambling to explain the failure of their models, those models that projected the warming process that failed to occur.   Read more »

Ironically, the f’ing-bomb-this and f-bomb-that commenters all seem to take Wonkette’s “satirical” take on Windy as a sex object as supportive!

    Wonkette is a left-wing blog whose writers spew forth with a foul keyboard, and I think that she and her readers are serious about supporting Windy. It’s just that their support is... shall we say “bent?”   Read more »
