Man, how things have changed. Your congressperson, Veronica Escobar identifies as... I am a proud third generation fronteriza and represent a community that is tired of being portrayed in a way that is not factually accurate. @POTUS doesn’t get our border communities right. El Paso is incredibly safe and an... Max Powers

UPDATED: El Paso and Its Elected Drunks

Sun, 01/13/2019 - 4:34pm
UPDATE - Because someone you can check this out - Download Country Clubbin. I guess Fierro had a little too much fun at the country club. As far as the DUI/DWIs, come on. Do I have to do it all for you guys? Go to the County website. But... Max Powers

The Case Against The Wall

Tue, 01/08/2019 - 7:52am
I am gonna make a case against the wall. No, it has nothing to do with the fact it is a "waste of money" because it is not. A "waste of money" is a land war in western Asia. So why no wall then? Besides it affecting the possible re-introduction... Max Powers

Immigration Reform or Lack Thereof - I can fix it

Wed, 01/02/2019 - 10:00am
Say what you will about Donald Trump at least he has ideas on immigration. The opposition? Sweet. F. Uck. All. Yeah, that even includes your former Congressman, Beto O'Rourke. He's the guy from the border who was a Congressman, but if you tried to nail him down for specifics on... Max Powers

No, Susie, No!

Thu, 12/20/2018 - 4:35pm
Why, Susie??? Why??? You working for Escobar is not part of the plan. You need to run for Pickett's seat. But, I cannot blame you. Escobar will pay you better than the Texas Legislature ever will, even if you were to max out your per diem. Now, you working for... Max Powers

Art Fierro...really?

Wed, 12/19/2018 - 7:12am
Come on, El Paso. Art Fierro. Really? He's not exactly the smartest peanut in the turd. I gotta better person in mind. Susie. Byrd. Whether she lives in the district or not is immaterial. It ain't like the Chair of Democratic Party would want to get sideways with the Congresswoman-elect’s... Max Powers

Soccer Balls

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 10:40am
So your soon-to-be retiring State Senator, Jose Rodriguez, is doing a soccer ball Christmas drive for all the Central American kids hanging out in Tornillo. And man, the way people have been blowing each on Twitter other for donating soccer balls is a bit much. But as they say, if... Max Powers

Now This Is Fresh

Mon, 12/03/2018 - 8:48pm
This may come as a surprise to some, but I have made my share of mistakes. In life, you can always right a wrong. In politics, maybe. In politics your past, or present, mistakes may or may not cost you. Get shitfaced and drive onto oncoming traffic? If you are,... Max Powers

Credit and Blame

Fri, 11/30/2018 - 7:57am
Just a thought here. Call it cognitive dissonance or whatever. I just cannot see how a person who takes credit for something like a streetcar line, which involves tearing-up miles of street and requires a state agency to pitch in $100 million for said line, but then throws his or... Max Powers

Hold The Line

Tue, 11/27/2018 - 8:20am
When not looking for areas of Segundo Barrio to bulldoze to put his presidential library, failed senate candidate Beto found time to comment about the events in Tijuana. Which got me thinking. Remember Silvestre Reyes? Y'all remember when he ran for Congress? What was his claim to fame? It was... Max Powers

Climate Change - I Can Stop It

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 12:33pm
Environmentalism is hard. Why is it hard? Because if you do think we are contributing to Earth's destruction, well, the only sensible thing for you to do is to off yourself. But short of that, I have a couple policy ideas: Condoms and Empowering Women - The developed world's birth... Max Powers

Salvation May Have To Wait

Wed, 11/14/2018 - 8:06am
When we are not getting our panties soaked watching Roberto Francisco O'Rourke slice off-cuts of meat against the grain, we are wondering when he will resurrect himself from failed senate candidate to the next Dear Leader. Speaking of off-cuts of meat, ever gone to a cook-out and there are fajitas,... Max Powers

My Two Cents to Ted Cruz

Fri, 11/09/2018 - 11:23am
I feel like as though I would be doing our Senator, Ted Cruz, a disservice if I did not least give him some of my half-baked opinions about what he needs to do going forward. So here they are: Jeff Roe - Don't listen to him. Or at least push... Max Powers

Wednesday Morning Quarterback!

Wed, 11/07/2018 - 7:57am
So what does Beto need to do now? He needs to take a break and not do anything for a while. For nearly the last two years, he has put an incredible amount of stress on his body traveling across this state eating shitty food and getting minimal sleep. Although... Max Powers

So what happens tomorrow?!?? I am calling the election for your next Senator, Roberto Francisco O'Rourke. Sure Democratic turnout will help, but the real difference maker will be Republicans. Even though Francisco has embraced positions that would normally give them heartburn, those Republicans will come up with a thousand reasons... Max Powers

Here and There

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 8:51am
Some quick thoughts... "Nationalism" - I do not get offended nor am I scared of nationalism. Some of you think of Nazis, I think of Mohammed Mossadegh, Lazaro Cardenas, and Jacobo Arbenz. Birthright Citizenship - I am AGAINST ending birth right citizenship, HOWEVER, I understand how some so-called nativists can... Max Powers

Beto Not

Thu, 10/11/2018 - 11:53am
I have soured on Beto. And I will be voting for the Madman from Calgary. Is it because I see the writing on the wall for Beto? No. Despite polling, I still think Beto has a good shot here. So what gives? We have seen this campaign before. I voted... Max Powers

Beto O'Rourke passed gas in his truck shortly after scarfing down a Whataburger breakfast taquito. And although the fart nearly blew-off what little ass cheeks he has, he remained steadfast in his commitment to make sure that both his right and left ass cheek remain united by the common bond...
