Apparently the Legislature is back in session, but no really gives a shit. With Covid nobody really cares about anything other than life getting back to normal. But that being said, apparently, the Legislature must convene. And word is two members of the El Paso Delegation cannot walk around anywhere... Continue reading

Ok. New Year, New Mayor...sorta. Oscar is back. What means? Unlike his predecessor, all Leeser cares about is whether or not trains run on time. Not how the train works, or what's for dinner in the dining car. There is probably a lot of folks that work in City Hall... Continue reading

“I believe that because it’s legal, it doesn’t make it ethical,” Lucero said. “I think it could potentially erode public trust.” I am trying to be a better person. So let me try to make a point without being mean about it. So Ysleta ISD Trustee, Kathryn Lucero???, also known... Continue reading

If you are gonna "cheat", I recommend the collagen protein (plain) and mixing it in with black coffee.

El Paso, man, it sucks. We can argue policy, science and all this other stupid ass bullshit. But in the thick of it, I know that is the last thing you want to hear or discuss. I just want you all to know you are not alone. The cavalry is... Continue reading

I read - as I am sure you all did too - about Rockstar Burger getting its TABC licensed suspended. Normally, I would not give a shit. BUT, there is something kinda funny about it. It appears Dee Margo's campaign manager, Trisha Enchirito, moonlights as spokesperson or is also part... Continue reading

Quickly- Veronica Carbajal - She did not make the run-off, but she did not have the money that Dee had, and yet just 4 points shy of making into the next round. Beto O'Rourke - Damn. What can you say? Whatever magic he once had, it is definitely lost now.... Continue reading

So this ad campaign by Forma that has some people bent out-of-shape. There are a few pieces to this. One is that being pissed off makes for good politics. The other piece means that the money folks behind the campaign feel somewhat nervous about who might be mayor. And probably... Continue reading

Jaime Abeytia has the Wuhan. Which sucks. I was not gonna say anything, but since he got diagnosed it seems like all he does is post on facebook. I am sorry, but when you are sick as a fucking dog, the last thing you want to do is anything at... Continue reading

Ummm...maybe one you of guys can explain it. So last election cycle, when you showed up to the poll, the El Paso muni races were towards the bottom of the ballot...so I was told. Okay. This cycle, if you requested the mail-in ballot, El Paso County has the muni races... Continue reading

Damn. Dee Margo. The guy that fancies himself as a rich savy business guy. But somehow this year his campaign has spent $70,000 on some side piece named Trisha, $90,000 on some company called Octopus and about $40,000 on polling...and what does he have to show for it? Sweet. Fuck.... Continue reading

...or that is at least what your Congressperson, Veronica Escobar, would like. Nothing to do with the Mayor's race, but thought you guys would like to see the definition that is forming. "What are you talking about, Max?" Escobar does not want the other Vero, the hotter and smarter one,... Continue reading

Damas y caballeros, please do not make this harder than it needs to be. This is the person who should be your Mayor. Let's face it. Oscar Leeser is running because he has nothing else to do. He's bored out-of-his mind. But much like the last time he was in... Continue reading

It has been rather quiet out there. I mean we have the mayoral's race that does not seem to quite end. And you have some City Council races. I already talked about one. And there is really no sense to talk about the other one that Aaron Montes is involved... Continue reading

Not that you all should give two shits about my opinion... ...BUT if you do...Vote Veronica Carbajal. Why? Look, no matter who wins, your taxes will be raised again. That or appraisals are gonna increase. But only one candidate might actually cut spending long-term. And that candidate is Carbajal. Dee... Continue reading

So I am clear of the Wuhan. I think. This past Monday I went to the clinic to get tested again, but per the staff at the clinic, per CDC guidelines, if you have been in quarantine for 10 days and have not had any symptoms for 3-4 days you... Continue reading

I am clear of Wuhan...sorta...but that is a post for later. For now, let's talk about....Dee Margo. Nah. No, let us talk instead about another incumbent who might be in trouble - Boston's own Alexsandra Annello. She is up against her own former staffer, El Paso's own, Judy Gutierrez. Now...

Right now in the mayor's race, it is a race for second....who can make it into a run-off with Oscar Leeser? After wards, the race becomes who can beat Leeser? If there is anyone who could beat Oscar Leeser in a run-off you would think it would be Veronica Carbajal.... Continue reading

That's right, folks. I got the Wuhan. Now, here's the thing. I have not had a fever. I have not had shortness of breath. But I have been feeling fatigued. So yesterday, I got a rapid test. Shortly after a doctor tells me I got it. And he also tells... Continue reading
