Honesty is the best policy, but not always effective

Fri, 01/18/2019 - 10:06am
My friend Mr. Grossman was none too pleased that I mentioned his contradictory existence as a libertarian that is against private property rights. He accused me of not being against the arena... or at least not being enough against it... Brad Kanus

There is a God and he loves this blog

Wed, 01/16/2019 - 8:21pm
Sorry I'm late with this today... I've been crying all day since I read Grossman's comment on my last post and haven't been able to bring myself to move onto this topic until now. An email went out a week... Brad Kanus

Be careful you don't look stupid when talking about taxes

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 9:31am
Last week there was a blip in the news about a local rich guy asking to create municipal management district (MMD) for a big piece of land out in the middle of nowhere. I saw that some of the blowhards... Brad Kanus

Does Pickett's replacement matter?

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 4:07pm
The answer is simple - NO. None of the representatives from El Paso matter at all in Austin. As many of you know, I live in Austin now and I get around with the political set whenever I can't avoid... Brad Kanus

Sorry about the break - I've been working on other projects. Brad Kanus

Svarz wins - what does that say about everything?

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 8:02am
I knew Svarz would win. I can't explain it other than he beat a very popular, well loved and highly respected guy in a run-off last time; so why not this time?. His opponent this time was none of that.... Brad Kanus

How does Rich lose to a nobody?

Tue, 12/04/2018 - 2:37pm
I don't mean to be offensive, but Rich Wright is a somebody in El Paso. If you don't know him, you should. He's a smart and interesting guy. I can understand that he didn't win the race, but losing to... Brad Kanus

Vote for Peter - the other person is backed by crazy people

Sun, 12/02/2018 - 7:07pm
I don't know any other way to put it other than - crazy people are backing Svarz's opponent. One of them is Lily Limon and she spent all of her discretionary funds decorating her office in seasonal motifs. The list... Brad Kanus

Another death in the Cincinnati Street area - What to do?

Wed, 11/28/2018 - 11:40am
It's pretty heartbreaking when anyone dies like this young lady. She's a great person doing nothing wrong and someone being careless (and ultimately selfish) takes her away. I can't pretend to imagine how her family feels. So, how do we... Brad Kanus

Low or no voter turnout for runoff

Thu, 11/15/2018 - 4:23pm
As many things as there are to be wary of when it comes to what the city council has been up to - they won't really spur voters to the polls in runoff. The Beto fever is gone. Turnout is... Brad Kanus

District 1 - no Beto, and more Grossman

Tue, 11/13/2018 - 8:13am
I don't like kicking people when they are down, but I think voters have shown that they do not like Rick Bonart. For Bonart that shouldn't matter because he's buddies with Grossman. And as you all know, the city council... Brad Kanus

It's almost over

Wed, 11/07/2018 - 8:07am
I'm too old, experienced and disinterested to dissect the numbers you guys put up in this last election. The top lines tell the story. El Paso votes to an extreme straight ticket Democrat. You just have no idea how bad... Brad Kanus

The lodge deal

Tue, 11/06/2018 - 9:25am
I guess I could get really detailed here and really lay out all the ins and outs of incentive packages... but I could probably sum it up pretty fast so you guys can do your screaming and yelling in the... Brad Kanus

The Beto campaign caravan thing - didn't happen

Mon, 11/05/2018 - 7:16pm
I'm going to just lay out what I saw on the video and leave it at that. First, you have a girl who is talking to two dudes and they are obviously trying to impress her. Their idea of impressing... Brad Kanus

On Monday...

I'm busy with some election stuff right now so I can't really do this. However, I will write about the Wolf lodge. And that's about it right now. Brad Kanus

Interesting email from a Segundo native

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 10:09am
I guess "native" is weird, but that's how the woman (I'm assuming by the writing style the person who emailed me was woman) who emailed me labeled herself. She was born in the neighborhood. Her parents had moved there in... Brad Kanus

Ain't that just rich... demons posing as angels

Mon, 10/29/2018 - 10:45am
Everybody is trying to make Beto's involvement in the downtown plan out to be some kind of awful thing where people were thrown out on the street to watch their houses with all of their possessions burn. We all know... Brad Kanus

More ElectionTalk

Thu, 10/25/2018 - 5:21am
Texas is off to a great start in early voting for this midterm election. Early voting and mail-in ballots are on pace to exceed the last midterm election turnout. This is especially true in El Paso where turnout is being... Brad Kanus

Why Svarz didn't get the EP Times' endorsement

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 11:01am
First of all - EP Times endorsements are meaningless. This splits two ways - people don't care or don't read the paper people know the editorial board is run by Byrd and Escobar which means it's a rigged game and... Brad Kanus

Is there an election soon?

Tue, 10/23/2018 - 9:29am
There's nothing like the first night in Vegas or the opening day of early voting. You can quote me on that. So, turnout looked to be insanely good everywhere in El Paso and around the rest of Texas (AKA -... Brad Kanus
