Beto and the Texas House Speaker's Race

Wed, 12/04/2019 - 7:21pm
I have said before that Joe Moody does not have a shot at being Speaker should the Texas House turn blue. But I might need to adjust that statement. He is still a long shot, but his odds have improved. Why? Beto O'Rourke. Look, Beto does not want to be... Max Powers

Claudia Ordaz Perez -Thin-Skinned (UPDATE - Maybe?)

Wed, 12/04/2019 - 9:26am
UPDATE - DAVID K SAYS CLAUDIA DID NOT CALL HIM BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK SHE RIPPED OFF FINE MEXICAN CUISINE ESTABLISHMENT LOGO. Back in late October, I joked that Claudia Ordaz Perez's campaign logo looks a lot like the Taco Bell logo. Again, late October. And the only reason I even... Max Powers

Filing Deadline and Other stuff

Mon, 12/02/2019 - 7:30am
Claudia Ordaz Perez - We are seven days shy of filing deadline and it looks like Cesar Blanco is going to waltz his way to the State Senate. Which would be bad news for Claudia Ordaz Perez. Because Blanco would then be free to help his candidate, Elisa Tomatillo. Now... Max Powers

This Shit Works...

Fri, 11/22/2019 - 7:14am
Some - offline - have been kinda surprised at my recent pictures. Like, "Max, I know you were always HAWT, but how did you get hotter?!?!" I am paraphrasing. Well, some of you all that read this blog remember me back when I weighed about 160lbs soaking wet, a few... Max Powers

Emma Acosta - Ethics Violation?

Mon, 11/18/2019 - 8:18am
I need y'alls help. I have been combing through City Representative-wannabe Will Veliz's campaign finance reports and for the life of me I cannot find expenses related to your former mayoral candidate, Emma Acosta.

Cesar Blanco: Getting a walk?

Thu, 11/14/2019 - 7:03am
Time is ticking. As of today, you’re next state senator is Cesar Blanco (D-San Antonio). Apparently though, polling was done. By who? I dunno. But per that poll Blanco is “weak on the West Side.” So what does that mean? Sweet phuck all if nobody else announces. Is West Side-weak... Max Powers

Where's Claudia?

Tue, 11/12/2019 - 8:01am
My future fiance Elisa Tomatillo is giving away pizzas and knocking on doors. Meanwhile, Claudia Ordez Perez is taking selfies with her treasurer. On paper, Claudia IS the more experienced candidate. But voters are not voting for pieces of paper. You can say all you want about Tomatillo being a... Max Powers

Beto for Senate....TEXAS Senate!?!?

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 7:45am
Now that Beto has called it quits...what's a man to do? He has expressed no interest in running for US Senate again. But I cannot imagine him wanting to be a stay-home dad making burgers with English muffins when the kids get home from school. Not that there is anything... Max Powers

Sucks To Be Dee Margo...and soon Claudia Order Perez

Fri, 11/01/2019 - 12:09pm
Oh, man. Poor Dee Margo. El Paso Times endorsed Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown at his expense. Per your El Paso Times: "We do like that she is willing to express views contrary to those held by Margo. That makes Hernandez a good counter to the mayor." Well. As the mayoral race... Max Powers

Folks, I have seen the future. And lucky for you I can provide you a glimpse of it. Here is a picture of yours truly preparing a Representative-elect Elisa Tomatillo-Powers a dark roast pour over, using a Chemex of course, the morning of swearing-in: And yes, you do need a... Max Powers

The race for House District 76 is on, and like David K said it will get nasty. Why? Well, in short, dos mujeres...un camino. And when it is like that, things get ugly. You have Claudia Ordaz PEREZ and her Taco Bell logo versus Elisa Tomatillo and her caca logo....although... Max Powers

Moody Blues

Have you ever gone to a bank and either applied to open a business line-of-credit or ask for an increase? Opening a business line-of-credit is somewhat easy if it is an SBA-backed line-of-credit. The bank likes it cos' it won't lose. Now, have you asked for an increase on the... Max Powers

Claudia Ordaz - Shit or Get Off The Pot...Parte Dos

Tue, 10/22/2019 - 11:25am
By next week, it will have been a month since Tomatillo announced. A month in which Ordaz has done nothing but “strategically wait”. "Claudia has time!" Yes, and no. Since Ordaz's strategic patience plan, her colleague, Sam Morgan gets arrested for slapping his wife. Now you have elected women in... Max Powers

Claudia Ordaz - Shit or Get Off The Pot

Fri, 10/18/2019 - 10:55am
As of today, House District 76's next representative will be Elisa Tomatillo. Now matter how many times Jaime Abeytia or David K blog how wrong that is, that is what will happen. UNLESS, City Representative Claudia Ordaz runs. You can shit on movidas all you want, but they can only... Max Powers

I'm Pro-Bonnen Now, Is Moody Still Too?

Thu, 10/17/2019 - 12:27pm
When the Texas House Speaker referred to some Democrats as "vile" and "pieces of shit", my immediate thought was, "Is he wrong tho?" And that is not even best, or even funniest, part. The funniest part is that nobody really likes Scott Braddock. In light of all of this, consider... Max Powers

Wife Beaters - The Ones We Hate vs The Ones We Love

Tue, 10/15/2019 - 6:42pm
Well, get a load of City Representatives Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown and Alexsandra Annello. They were having none of it regarding their wife-beater colleague, City Representative Sam Morgan. Something about being treated different and what not. Never mind the fact, when it comes to everybody else, whether it be staff, lobbyists,... Max Powers

Your only major daily has not one, but TWO stories about your CongressX, Veronica Escobar. One is about the border wall. Yea, I do not care. The other is kinda interesting. The other is about El Paso's current economy. Per your Escobar: "If we don’t do something to plan for... Max Powers

El Paso City Hall - What a clusterphuck

2021 will be interesting for El Paso. In 2021, you will likely have a new mayor. In 2021, you will likely then have a new city manager. And in 2021, you will likely have a city council that may not be able to get anything done. The crazy part though... Max Powers
