If my former employer had filed legislation that was "anti-transparency", "anti-good government" she would have been taken to the woodshed by the El Paso Times. If that punishment were not enough, AND she sought to push that legislation only to have it voted down, she would have been taken back... Continue reading

Little less than a year left until the Iowa caucuses. Beto is to be found...all over place. I do not get it either. He wants to run the same race he did for Senate for the Presidency. Ain't gonna happen, bro. He spent two years running for Senate. Yes, Texas... Continue reading

...while we do not know if for certain Cassandra Hernandez will run for mayor, it is almost certain that someone else is... ….Oscar Leeser. You gotta hand it to him. He left the Mayor's office right before he had to raise taxes, and now wants to come back! "When I... Continue reading

It is still a year out, but it appears people are gunning for Dee Margo. Why? Dee has a couple of issues that work against him - he raised taxes, and he has a shitty track record when it comes to getting re-elected. So who is gonna run against Dee?... Continue reading

Your State Representative, Cesar Blanco, filed something that has me puzzled. He filed legislation that would require two state agencies to get together to create a website to provide real-time traffic information at the ports of entry. See for yourself - Haz Cliq Aqui. So why is it puzzling? Well,... Continue reading

Your State Representative, Lina Ortega, and State Senator, Jose Rodriguez, are going after massage parlors. You know...those places in shopping centers that advertise foot massages with the windows completed covered-up. Yeah, those places. So they both filed legislation - HAPPY ENDING - to regulate these places a bit more. They... Continue reading

So now Roberto O'Rourke wants to remove the border fence between El Paso and Juarez. Okay. Fine. Maybe you agree with him. But it begs the question - Motherfucker, you were in Congress for three-terms, and you did sweet-phuck all about it? You have to wonder if this is an... Continue reading

For allegedly being the least popular president ever, and holding a rally in a predominately Hispanic, and Democratic-stronghold, your President, Donald Trump, held the biggest rally held by any Republican in El Paso's history. That's win a folks. Meanwhile, hometown hero, Roberto O'Rourke spread himself thin by having a pre-march... Continue reading

Don’t kid yourselves. Trump is the best thing to happen to El Paso. If not for Trump, would anyone care about El Paso? No. ”But he’s insulting El Paso!!!” First of all, it wasn’t too long ago your neighbor made Baghdad look like Mayberry. Second of all, so? I’m from... Continue reading

Please use Uber. Or if Austin still does haven’t Uber, please let Cesar be your DD. Cesar won’t be doing much this session anyways. The least he can do is keep Austin streets safe. Continue reading

Your Texas Delegation has received its committee assignments. And kudos to Joe Moody and Mary Gonzalez. They did A-Okay. But the same cannot be said for the rest of the Delegation. Now, Lina Ortega can be forgiven because she has the personality of a dead moth. But Cesar Blanco!?!?! He... Continue reading

El Paso should be regretting its decision to send Veronica Escobar to Washington. She is doing everything she can to get attention, but the other freshpersons who happen to be women are just too much for her to overcome. Escobar is Triple AAA compared to those folks. Had y'all sent... Continue reading

Man, how things have changed. Your congressperson, Veronica Escobar identifies as... I am a proud third generation fronteriza and represent a community that is tired of being portrayed in a way that is not factually accurate. @POTUS doesn’t get our border communities right. El Paso is incredibly safe and an... Continue reading

UPDATE - Because someone asked...here you can check this out - Download Country Clubbin. I guess Fierro had a little too much fun at the country club. As far as the DUI/DWIs, come on. Do I have to do it all for you guys? Go to the County website. But... Continue reading

I am gonna make a case against the wall. No, it has nothing to do with the fact it is a "waste of money" because it is not. A "waste of money" is a land war in western Asia. So why no wall then? Besides it affecting the possible re-introduction... Continue reading

Say what you will about Donald Trump at least he has ideas on immigration. The opposition? Sweet. F. Uck. All. Yeah, that even includes your former Congressman, Beto O'Rourke. He's the guy from the border who was a Congressman, but if you tried to nail him down for specifics on... Continue reading

Why, Susie??? Why??? You working for Escobar is not part of the plan. You need to run for Pickett's seat. But, I cannot blame you. Escobar will pay you better than the Texas Legislature ever will, even if you were to max out your per diem. Now, you working for... Continue reading

Come on, El Paso. Art Fierro. Really? He's not exactly the smartest peanut in the turd. I gotta better person in mind. Susie. Byrd. Whether she lives in the district or not is immaterial. It ain't like the Chair of Democratic Party would want to get sideways with the Congresswoman-elect’s... Continue reading

So your soon-to-be retiring State Senator, Jose Rodriguez, is doing a soccer ball Christmas drive for all the Central American kids hanging out in Tornillo. And man, the way people have been blowing each on Twitter other for donating soccer balls is a bit much. But as they say, if... Continue reading

This may come as a surprise to some, but I have made my share of mistakes. In life, you can always right a wrong. In politics, maybe. In politics your past, or present, mistakes may or may not cost you. Get shitfaced and drive onto oncoming traffic? If you are,... Continue reading

Just a thought here. Call it cognitive dissonance or whatever. I just cannot see how a person who takes credit for something like a streetcar line, which involves tearing-up miles of street and requires a state agency to pitch in $100 million for said line, but then throws his or...

When not looking for areas of Segundo Barrio to bulldoze to put his presidential library, failed senate candidate Beto found time to comment about the events in Tijuana. Which got me thinking. Remember Silvestre Reyes? Y'all remember when he ran for Congress? What was his claim to fame? It was... Continue reading

Environmentalism is hard. Why is it hard? Because if you do think we are contributing to Earth's destruction, well, the only sensible thing for you to do is to off yourself. But short of that, I have a couple policy ideas: Condoms and Empowering Women - The developed world's birth... Continue reading

When we are not getting our panties soaked watching Roberto Francisco O'Rourke slice off-cuts of meat against the grain, we are wondering when he will resurrect himself from failed senate candidate to the next Dear Leader. Speaking of off-cuts of meat, ever gone to a cook-out and there are fajitas,... Continue reading

I feel like as though I would be doing our Senator, Ted Cruz, a disservice if I did not least give him some of my half-baked opinions about what he needs to do going forward. So here they are: Jeff Roe - Don't listen to him. Or at least push... Continue reading
