Go, Kinky, Go!

Kinky Friedman stopped in Houston today to promote his campaign for Governor of Texas. I can't make up my mind which bumper sticker to get, "How hard can it be?" or "Why the Hell Not?" Hell, why not both?

Stupid Yankee Revisionists!

Remember the REAL Alamo!!!

Nickelodeon, the children's cable network that birthed SpongeBob onto us, had a PSA-type short TV spot last month, in which they claimed the Battle of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution was about slavery! When they ran their story by an Alamo historian, he warned them of their one-sidedness and inaccuracies, but they ran the story as is anyway. World Net Daily has the script of the whole piece on their site. Damn, I've seen better Texas history lessons on the back of a knife package! Makes me glad I don't have cable TV, but when I do, I'll demand the cable company remove it from my service.
I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised, since Nick has Uberliberal Linda Ellerbee as their main "news" commentator.

For my Wife

I suppose this is kinda a Mother's Day gift, even tho all our "kids" are furry or feathered:
I want to be Stitch when I grow up.
I love you.

FYI For anybody else reading this, my wife's a big fan of Lilo and Stitch.

The World's Smallest Political Quiz

The World's Smallest Political Quiz
Go and see where you truly are on the political scale. There's more to politics than just the Left/Right scale that you (may have) learned in school. This shows why Nazis and Socialists aren't polar opposites, but instead are practically kissing cousins.
Back to the Quiz: They've changed the questions some since I last took it, I guess to keep up with the times; in changing their questions, my answers did too, along with my score. I went from a Centrist (60%/60%) to Libertarian(70%/70%). Foo, just when I'd found a radio show host that summed up what it means to be a Centrist:
"... (W)e want the Republicans out of our bedroom and the Democrats out of our wallet and both out of our First and Second Amendment rights."
Sadly, the only way I can listen to his show is by being online during the broadcasts, and most days I'm at my second job(s)at that time, very, very far away from a computer.

Texas' new Official State Upside-the-Head Whacker:

The cast iron skillet!
Because I think our "representatives" have too damned much free time on their hands, if they can vote on things like "official" state symbols like the state pastry (sopapilla and strudel) and dog breed (the Blue Lacy?!?)(why not Mixed, 'cause that's what I see everywhere!). Oh, wait, they've already chosen the Dutch oven as the official state cooking implement. Nuts to all of them! (BTW, the pecan is the state health nut, along with the pecan tree as the state tree.)

UPDATE: The Lone Star Times has a more thorough critique of the Legislature's activities.
