School Board Races

Sun, 04/04/2021 - 7:28pm
Hi. If there is one area of electoral politics I do not care for it is for school board races. For starters...the children. To hell with them. Teachers? Same. And Trustees? Hell isn't severe enough. "I serve on the school board." Yeah, tough gig, bro. But I am rambling now.... Max Powers

A Smaller Delegation

Mon, 03/22/2021 - 8:25pm
I have not posted because there is not much to post about. Really. Between Wuhan and Winter Storm Uri?, expectations are kinda low as to what can or cannot happen in Austin. But that being said, they still gotta do redistricting. And your El Paso House Delegation might lose a... Max Powers

What Ted Cruz Did Was Wrong....

Fri, 02/19/2021 - 10:30am
...he should have not cut his vacation short. He should have doubled-down and said, "My parents did not leave Canada for this shit, so fuck you guys, I am staying." I guess he appears tone-deaf to some because he went. But most people just hating cos' they wish they were... Max Powers

Beto Wants To Run for Something...Again

Thu, 02/18/2021 - 8:38am
Maybe third's time the charm. And just maybe it might work this time should he run for governor. With Trump - the most popular politician in Texas history based on votes cast - not on the ballot, and it being a mid-term election, Republicans cannot count on the same voters... Max Powers

Lina Ortega

Mon, 02/15/2021 - 9:39am
Serious question - if Lina Ortega did not show up at all during this legislative session would it matter? This is what? Lina's fourth or third term? Has anyone said, "Hey, before we do anything, let's check with Lina"? Probably not. Why bring her up? Cos' she wrote some really... Max Powers

Your Delegation

Thu, 02/11/2021 - 11:43am
Real quick. Joe Moody landed on his feet after all, and all he has to thank are the Republicans that turned out to vote in the last cycle that kept Texas red. Going forward should Texas turn blue no one will remember what Joe Moody did that made him person... Max Powers

"A La Gran Puta"

Mon, 02/01/2021 - 8:24am
"A la gran puta..." Those would be last words that I heard from my stepfather right before he hung up on me a couple of weeks ago. The next morning I got a call from mother crying to learn that he passed. So what happened? Back in December, my stepfather... Max Powers

Adult Supervision

Tue, 01/19/2021 - 1:38pm
Apparently the Legislature is back in session, but no really gives a shit. With Covid nobody really cares about anything other than life getting back to normal. But that being said, apparently, the Legislature must convene. And word is two members of the El Paso Delegation cannot walk around anywhere... Max Powers

Back to The Future

Thu, 01/07/2021 - 7:34am
Ok. New Year, New Mayor...sorta. Oscar is back. What means? Unlike his predecessor, all Leeser cares about is whether or not trains run on time. Not how the train works, or what's for dinner in the dining car. There is probably a lot of folks that work in City Hall... Max Powers
