Tue, 03/12/2019 - 10:58am
Mayor Dee Margo has already announced his reelection bid and Former Mayor Oscar Leeser has put his name in the hat as well. We also hear that Ted Houghton wants to run. This only leaves about 50 other rich white... Brad Kanus

Bonart's personal park one step closer to done

Tue, 03/05/2019 - 1:05pm
Bonart's 1,000 personal play area you'll be financing through increased water bills is on step closer to being all his. They have the official ballot language: Shall an ordinance be approved to preserve in its natural state, for all time,... Brad Kanus

The petition thing doesn't work for all issues

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 3:03pm
I've been meaning to cover this since reading it in the El Paso Herald Post Gazette Times Dispatch Courier Tribune HERE. So there's a group called "El Paso Grassroots Coalition," which is a dumb name to begin with. "Grassroots" describes... Brad Kanus

Do you know who was seen in town?

Thu, 02/28/2019 - 11:16am
Certain somebodies from a certain election team that won a couple of elections with a yearly GDP of less than three percent were in El Paso recently. I'm sure they were in town help Bonart secure his 1,000 acre private... Brad Kanus

Lost Dog updates

Mon, 02/25/2019 - 7:14am
Below you'll see the talking points created by the Lost Dog Land Takers. They are making it up as they go. It's quite obvious that a couple of guys like Bonart use the 1,000 acres as their personal playground because... Brad Kanus

El Paso Days in Austin - painful

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 1:05pm
Insiders at the capital tell me that El Paso dignitaries and electeds have started rolling into town to have their lobby days. They say that some of the delegation is levelheaded and understanding while the other half is slightly insane... Brad Kanus

Does El Paso need an arena?

Thu, 02/14/2019 - 9:59am
First off, to all you Beto fans... You won. Also, all of you Trump fans... You won. Each team won. Congrats to both of you. But we learned something so much more important than whose crowd was bigger or louder... Brad Kanus

Bonart bleeds for personal park, but you will too

Wed, 02/13/2019 - 11:21am
Two emails shot around the environazi world last week. The first one announced their Progress 915 PAC has a benefactor that would match up to $20,000 in donation. The second mentioned that Eddie Holguin and Lily Limon are somehow supporting... Brad Kanus

Be careful on Monday

Fri, 02/08/2019 - 8:56am
Trump is coming to town and he's bringing with him the media. They will want to talk to El Pasoans. You are an El Pasoan. Do not slide into a trap. If you claim that we don't need a wall... Brad Kanus

I'd take what you can get...

Thu, 02/07/2019 - 8:39am
I know, I know, I know - no need to keep emailing me. The President is wrong about El Paso being a dangerous city. No doubt that El Paso has never lived up to the "wild west" hype as seen... Brad Kanus

Bonart and City team up to charge you $400,000 for his personal park

Wed, 02/06/2019 - 9:30am
Not only did the city fail to do the right thing with the ballot language for the ordinance, but they sweetened the deal by letting them add an unofficial name to the ballot language as well. The stealing of public... Brad Kanus

Ballot language is out... You're screwed

Tue, 02/05/2019 - 9:33am
Look at agenda item 25.1 HERE Usually when the city knows it's about to really screw over itself and the taxpayers with one of these petitions, they make the language going on the ballot very hard to understand. In this... Brad Kanus

Rich white people wanting huge personal park start a local PAC

Mon, 02/04/2019 - 2:32pm
You might remember that Rick Bonart and few other very rich guys don't like riding their bikes with the likes of you and your kind. They need 1,100 acres to be given to them by YOU for free so they... Brad Kanus

You have a new State Rep and it's meaningless

Wed, 01/30/2019 - 6:18am
Congrats to Art Fierro?? Not sure anyone in Austin cares. Whether he shows up for work or just takes his paycheck sitting in his living room it doesn't matter. You elected a Democrat to a Republican legislature. You brought flip... Brad Kanus

Again sorry for the lack of material

I'm working on a podcast I'm going to start doing. Not about El Paso issues, but you'll still hate it anyway. I'll be back next week strong with more stuff. Brad Kanus

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
