Max's misstep

Wed, 09/12/2018 - 11:14am
Our buddy Max Grossman made a mistake this past week and I think it may cost him his army of petition signers. Jaime Abeytia went pretty apoplectic HERE over a Ted Cruz campaign ad posted to a hysterical society Facebook... Brad Kanus

Local politics round up

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 12:49pm
I've been busy, sorry for not having more stuff for you guys. I promise lots of stuff this week. -------------- We can start with Max Powers and the question "What's in a name?" Apparently there's a lot in a name... Brad Kanus

Beto blossoms and the Right fires up the mower

Tue, 09/04/2018 - 8:29am
This is not about Beto's stance on issues. This is just a few thoughts about campaign strategies. I'm not endorsing anyone, so don't waste your digital ink claiming I am. Anyone with a pulse knows Beto is the hottest politician... Brad Kanus

How soon you forget - strong mayor government follies

Tue, 08/28/2018 - 10:06am
Every couple of years we see folks clamoring for strong mayor form of government back. This usually coincides with some kind of tax increase - whether it be direct from the city or a routed through the city from a... Brad Kanus

Listen carefully this campaign season

Mon, 08/27/2018 - 6:38am
Are there more deer on this continent or more promises from politicians about lowering taxes? Deer are easy to indentify, bullshit not so much. What? You disagree? You're an expert on all things bullshit, are you? You're likely not. The... Brad Kanus

I do not agree with a tax increase, however...

Wed, 08/22/2018 - 9:05am
People voted for all of these new things like a museum that is not needed and an arena you don't likely need. Of course, there are other projects on that list that could probably be argued. Again, the majority spoke... Brad Kanus

Be honest - your arguments don't work and your reasoning is contradictory

Tue, 08/21/2018 - 2:54pm
Those of you who don't want TIRZ 12 - just be honest. You want your own personal park. Or you don't want brown people moving into your area. It's one or the other. And believe me, "environmental concerns" and "tax... Brad Kanus

The Irony...

Mon, 08/20/2018 - 8:07am
Bonart was on the PSB when they cut the deal to develop the land on the northwest. He voted for it. He was a part of the negotiations in 2013. Bonart is now against what he was once for. This... Brad Kanus

Recalls and Petitions - Thoughts and Rumors

Thu, 08/16/2018 - 9:52am
It's fun for local bloggers in these times. And that means you're likely getting screwed. The amount of money spent to fight ankle-biters usually exceeds the amount of money they think they are saving "the people" - you know, those... Brad Kanus

It's no longer "your" government - it's Max's

Wed, 08/15/2018 - 10:05am
I just wanted to point out that you people voted to have those city council members represent you. You gave them the duty of voting on measures as your representative. If you felt they didn't represent you, there's always an... Brad Kanus

Final stage of baby fit reached - it's time for a recall!

Fri, 08/10/2018 - 8:22am
Do you know how to keep an idiot busy? Get him to recall an elected official. You won't see or hear from them for months. The latest futile effort by a whiney citizen is a recall of the mayor. It's... Brad Kanus

TIRZ Survives and Svarzbein trolls everyone

Wed, 08/08/2018 - 6:42am
Thanks to all that live-streamed to my email the city council meeting yesterday. Svarzbein has grown up and become a little bit of a politician these days. First of all, Annello was going to vote to take away the TIRZ... Brad Kanus

All About Beto

Tue, 08/07/2018 - 8:32am
Fine, I'll bend. You guys have to promise to stop the daily emails asking about Beto's race, though. First off, I like Beto a lot. I think he's a great guy. He's always been ears first and mouth second when... Brad Kanus

First candidate news of the season from me

Mon, 08/06/2018 - 12:20pm
I don't really care to "break news" at all. I'd rather just sit back and take potshots at everyone from the comfort of my cave. However, sometimes I'm forced to mention something you might not already know. That "sometimes" is... Brad Kanus

Benefactor looking for a way out?

Fri, 08/03/2018 - 12:12pm
I'm going to use a lot of pronouns and nicknames here in order to not to cause anyone involved any real trouble or annoyance. The thing most interesting about the mayor email situation is the email I'm getting from you... Brad Kanus

Call in the FBI, Interpol and the Texas Rangers - you have 7 emails!

Wed, 08/01/2018 - 8:46am
I have to say the Mayor's failure to disclose seven emails is quite significant... only if you compare it to the "Chuco Leaks" scam that only turned up two emails worth reading and they were just mean in a funny... Brad Kanus

You can't sue the city and be on a volunteer city board

Mon, 07/30/2018 - 8:51am
I know some of you are wound up about the TIRZ thing, but that doesn't mean common sense doesn't apply. When Bonart sued the city, absolutely zero clear-thinking people on the planet Earth thought he'd keep his seat on the... Brad Kanus
