I am not sure what to make of it, but I do find the way the El Paso Times covers State Representative Claudia Ordaz kinda interesting. Last week, she got front page treatment. And she's just a freshman. And you know that had to annoy the more experienced, accomplished legislators.... Continue reading

Hi. If there is one area of electoral politics I do not care for it is for school board races. For starters...the children. To hell with them. Teachers? Same. And Trustees? Hell isn't severe enough. "I serve on the school board." Yeah, tough gig, bro. But I am rambling now.... Continue reading

I have not posted because there is not much to post about. Really. Between Wuhan and Winter Storm Uri?, expectations are kinda low as to what can or cannot happen in Austin. But that being said, they still gotta do redistricting. And your El Paso House Delegation might lose a... Continue reading

...he should have not cut his vacation short. He should have doubled-down and said, "My parents did not leave Canada for this shit, so fuck you guys, I am staying." I guess he appears tone-deaf to some because he went. But most people just hating cos' they wish they were... Continue reading

MWLNOW, Your husband needs to take away your cell or keyboard. Love, Max
Maybe third's time the charm. And just maybe it might work this time should he run for governor. With Trump - the most popular politician in Texas history based on votes cast - not on the ballot, and it being a mid-term election, Republicans cannot count on the same voters... Continue reading

Serious question - if Lina Ortega did not show up at all during this legislative session would it matter? This is what? Lina's fourth or third term? Has anyone said, "Hey, before we do anything, let's check with Lina"? Probably not. Why bring her up? Cos' she wrote some really... Continue reading

G, Asking me to explain women's logic is a tall, if not impossible task. But I can say what happens next. Mrs. Perez becomes....Mrs. Powers. Love, Max

Real quick. Joe Moody landed on his feet after all, and all he has to thank are the Republicans that turned out to vote in the last cycle that kept Texas red. Going forward should Texas turn blue no one will remember what Joe Moody did that made him person... Continue reading

"A la gran puta..." Those would be last words that I heard from my stepfather right before he hung up on me a couple of weeks ago. The next morning I got a call from mother crying to learn that he passed. So what happened? Back in December, my stepfather... Continue reading

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.

A new year is the on horizon, but it won't magically get better cos' you want it to. You must put in the work now. If not, your 2021 will be just be just as shitty as your 2020. Namaste. Continue reading

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
