...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

Per KTSM your mayor said: “If almost 50-percent of our positives are coming from the 20 and 30-year-old’s that’s the group that needs to get their act together.” And said: “Probably in their homes, I’m hearing on social media about a lot of pool parties. People are gathering at those... Continue reading

You gotta hand it to her. No matter how many times she lost, she kept at it. And look at her now. Now when you see her at the courthouse you have to refer to her as "Your Honor". All things consider, she probably caught a break losing at least... Continue reading

Campaign finance reports. I looked so you do not have to. Oscar Lesser? Not much to see there. Really. There is not much there at all. Carlos Gallinar? Kinda interesting. Michael Apodaca is getting paid peanuts, but Stephanie Acosta? is not doing too bad for herself. Veronica Carbajal? Exhausting. And... Continue reading

Been a bit busy, but seeing that the Chihuahuas will not be playing anytime soon got me thinking about that downtown arena. I assume this pandemic business will end the day after election day, but let us assume we must live in a world where pandemics are the norm. Does... Continue reading

Okay. Now, you motherfuckers done pissed me off. We went from fighting against police brutality to rewriting history of the American Southwest. I have no fucking idea what Oñate has to do with what happened to George Floyd. But here we are. And yes, it always annoyed the shit out... Continue reading

Dee Margo cannot catch a break. He rolls out a Wuhan Virus Re-opening Task Force only to get shat on by his friend, Governor Greg Abbott. If that was not bad enough, Dee has to play second fiddle to County Judge Ricardo Samaniego. Again, that could have been Vince Perez's... Continue reading

I have thought that Dee might have a chance of making into the run-off thereby giving him a chance to win. But with all this shit going on, is it worth it? It is shit pay for shit storms. So why bother? The job is not worth it. First, you... Continue reading

I know there is a lot going right now. But I do not need to cover that for you. Instead, let me offer you a break from all that. Okay. Your CongresswomXn is working really hard to send her energy my way. A couple of nights ago, somehow, some way,... Continue reading

We are all tired of the Wuhan. Sorta. I have enjoyed the fact there is no such thing as rush hour. But on the other hand, my father and his woman, DID get the Wuhan. Kinda expected since they do live in Long Island. And it sucks. My father had... Continue reading

I am not quite sure what to make of this. I thought Veronica Escobar wearing open-toed shoes showing her Flintstones feet was bad, but this beats. Without further comment, I give you your City Representative, Alexsandra Annello: Continue reading

You know CongressX Veronica Escobar is pissed she ain't the County Judge during the Chi-rona pandemic. She would be on television everyday looking like a leader. Instead, she is on the television bitching and moaning about this and that. And you know else is pissed? Vince Perez. He could have... Continue reading

200+ pounds of beautiful man there getting some vitamin D, folks. Insert your homophobic jokes now....see what I did there? But seriously, get some vitamin D. Speaking of getting some D, what is up with Dee Margo? Maybe I heard it wrong, but you guys can clarify. He is shutting... Continue reading

Now that Cesar Blanco, a man who bought his first home in San Antonio before he bought one in El Paso, will be State Senator, I got to thinking who is going to hire. When Eliot Shapleigh left the Senate, he left his trash in the office for Jose Rodriguez... Continue reading

Over the weekend, Claudia Ordaz Perez's campaign consultant and friend, Jaime Abeytia, put an El Pasoan - Ross Moore - on blast. This is after the fact she won her race handily. Instead of doing the grown-up thing and letting either Ross Moore call Claudia with his tail tucked between... Continue reading

I have been beating up on Forma a lot because of its piss poor performance lately with its client Dee Margo. But Forma did knock it out-of-the-park with Claudia Ordaz Perez. Don't kid yourself that Claudia would have won it with just only her rag-tag team of consultants, Vince Perez... Continue reading

So now that Claudia Ordaz Perez will be the next State Representative to represent District 76, what now? Does the Delegation and Claudia kiss and make-up? Yea...sorta. Say what you will about the Delegation, and there is plenty I can say about it, their uneasiness with Claudia is not exactly... Continue reading
