Did you all see this story - HERE! An 18-year old and 20-year old were moving 100lbs of cocaine. You guys may call that stupidity. I call that ambition. When I was at that age, I was either studying or masturbating. But not these kids. Had they gotten away with... Continue reading

The immediate knock against Dori Fenenbock is that she is being backed by "The Republicans". But if that is a knock against her, it is the knock against Escobar. Look at Escobar's reception host committee list (see below). If the other knock against Dori is that she is corrupt because... Continue reading

Paul Moreno has passed. He was a lot things to a lot of people. To some, he was a "great legislator". So let us take a moment to reflect upon all that Moreno accomplished legislatively for El Paso while serving in the Texas Legislature for nearly half a century: .... Continue reading

Not too long ago - August 16th to be exact - your City Representative Cassandra Hernandez-Brown spoke to KVIA about possibly changing the name of Robert E. Lee Road. According to her, she "received a high-volume of complaints from constituents" regarding the road's name. So yours truly submitted an open... Continue reading

I do not know why Mayor Dee Margo feels compelled to fight for something that deserves to die...the downtown arena. His argument is basically, "Well, shit we spent this much money now." Just because you have spent money already does not mean you have to keep spending it. "Well, the... Continue reading

Some folks want you to "encourage" Veronica Pleters...err...Veronica Escobar to run for Congress because she is, for a lack of a better word, a beaner. Let us not kid ourselves. Escobar needs no encouragement. But back to this whole brown thing. The problem once you play the race card is... Continue reading

Man, poor Commissioner Vincent Perez. He keeps getting publicly bitch-slapped by County Judge Veronica Escobar over this immigration Gitmo stuff. The worst part about it is that Perez's best friend, Jaime Abeytia, is doing nothing to stick up for him. On one hand, I get it. Abeytia is engaged. So... Continue reading

Yes, I know. I haven't been around that is cos' my day job which eventually spills into the evening and weekends has kept me busy. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I am alive and well. I'll be heading to the La Madre Patria fittingly with my madre....something about her believing this is... Continue reading

In the words of our former Dear Leader, let me be clear. I was long in the tank for Beto long before it was cool to be in the tank for Beto. BUT I've got a bone to pick with Beto. It is about this whole healthcare thing. He thinks... Continue reading

So far the people who have announced or are considering to run for County Judge are all kinda sorry. The only reason John Cook is running is because he is looking for an excuse to be out-of-the-house for the same reason why married men golf...to avoid their wives. Commissioner David...

Poor Commissioner Vince Perez. First, County Judge Veronica Escobar shows what she thinks of him by endorsing former do-nothing Mayor John Cook for County Judge. And now, THIS. Poor Perez went out-of-his-way to have a press conference on a Sunday to announce his effort to end that federal contract. He... Continue reading

I have been busy with my day job. But I am glad to know Willie Gandara is free. I hope he makes a comeback. Yes, he sold copious amounts of weed, but liquor distributors and manufacturers of opioids are far worse in my book. Do not get me wrong. Weed... Continue reading

Just a thought... ...what if SB 4 does not produce the desired effect its proponents are pushing for thereby not producing the desired affect its opponents are secretly wishing for? In other words, what if enforcement of this new law ranges from haphazard to "meh"? Or enforcement is great, but... Continue reading

Yes, there was an election. I am definitely not getting a Conquistador. Oh, well. So what now? Well, you all are about to spend $180 million on a new arena without a tenant. That's only to build the thing, not maintain it. But as David K suggests you all will... Continue reading

One thing mayoral candidate David Saucedo would like to remind you of is that he is a "4th generation El Pasoan." The only thing I can come up with as to why he is using that line is that his campaign intern, Chris Hernandez, said something like this: "David, even... Continue reading

El Paso owes Norma Chavez a "Thank you!" If not El Paso, at the very least these three assholes in this picture who are celebrating the El Paso's only medical school's most recent expansion do: The El Paso medical school did not start with Norma Chavez. But its legislative journey... Continue reading

El Paso Democrats do not seem to bothered by the fact a Republican will end up as mayor. I thought with Hitler in office local Democrats would be motivated. But oh well. So there goes my shot at a Conquistador. So why are people not voting for Emma? Are you... Continue reading

So the ethics complaint filed against mayoral candidate David Saucedo with the Texas Ethics Commission was rejected. What does this mean? One thing that it does NOT mean, is that it is over. I know a thing or two about filing an ethics complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission. I... Continue reading

...until he does not. Yet again, your mayoral candidate did not want to provide the El Paso Times with a comment regarding the "frivolous" complaint. You can describe the ethics complaint against Saucedo anyway you want. Regardless of your choice of adjective, the complaint had enough validity to it that... Continue reading

Honest question. In all of his interviews, David Saucedo comes off needlessly pissed. Why is he so angry? Maybe he should go to one of those foot spa places. Of course, he calls his angry "passion". Which that would be okay if his name was "Dez Bryant". But David Saucedo... Continue reading

Apparently, your next U.S. Senator, Beto O'Rourke, is unafraid to say "shit" from time-to-time. Which is A-Okay by me. Which got me thinking about other curse words like "bitch". And...BAM! It hit me. I know how O'Rourke can beat soon-to-be-ex-Senator Ted Cruz. O'Rourke cannot run on policy, or run against... Continue reading

So it appears mayoral candidate David Saucedo has a problem or two. And Saucedo is running scared. He provided comment to KVIA. But shortly after when the El Paso Times asked for comment, he provided none. So what now? Tomorrow there is a KVIA-hosted debate. Does KVIA allow him to... Continue reading

Believe it or not, Beto can win. Provided that Tatoo does not also run in the Democratic primary, Beto can win this. Here are the three primary reasons why I in my not so humble opinion I believe Beto can win: Hustle - The general election is more than a... Continue reading
