10 Things This Week

1. I spent most of my life in dark movie theatres and stage theatres. This week, some sicko decides to shoot up a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado and kills 12 people. To me, the Theatre is sacred ground. My message: DON'T FUCK WITH THE THEATRE! (They should string him up by his testicles, crazy or not.)

2. If Mitt Romney won't release his tax returns, then whatever is in those returns must be more damaging to him politically, than the story of him not releasing them.

3. There's some speculation that Hilary Clinton will replace Joe Biden as VP. I'd like to see it.

4. It was revealed that the corporate eatery, Chick-fil-A, has been funneling millions of dollars to support anti-gay organizations. It's a free country and all that, but if you're selling chicken sandwiches for hate, then I don't have to eat them. Like Susan G Komen, and it's leaders' ignorant action against Planned Parenthood, chick-fil-a should learn to keep it's fucking mouth shut.

5. Penn State finally received some level of punishment from the NCAA. While it did vacate wins for the apathetic Joe Pa, it still lacked the bite of an SMU-type death penalty. The whole story disgusts me beyond words.

6. It's scary to hear David Dewhurst say things like "Obama doesn't understand business" or "Obamacare will cost Texas a trillion dollars." Seriously? Dude. You need to lay off the acid...

7. If you've been listening to Dewhurst, then you've been forced to listen to Ted Cruz, whose even more batshit than Dewhurst. What an embarrassment Texas has become.

8. If it weren't for lies, and the systematic belief of those lies, Republicans wouldn't have any ground to stand on. At this point, it's all they have left.

9. David Dewhurst has a commercial that says, "lets go to Washington and turn this thing around."
Turn what around? Progress? David, David, Davy, what you mean to say is, "put her in reverse."

10. The peaches and the cantaloupes are in.

The Weekly Runoff Wrangle

The Texas Progressive Alliance reminds everyone that this is the only week of early voting for the July 31 primary runoffs as it brings you this week's roundup.

Off the Kuff notes that Medicaid expansion would be far less expensive than originally claimed.
BossKitty at TruthHugger is sad to see history repeating itself more frequently. More and more people are "loosing" their sanity and getting away with it. Because of the recent mass murders in Colorado, I re-post I Have A Gun and I Have A Grudge – Aurora Update.

The Romney campaign is blatantly lying, and CNN and Fox News are going along with it. It's what WCNews at Eye on Williamson calls The horribleness of our media.

The Houston Chronicle made an endorsement in the Democratic primary that caused PDiddie at Brains and Eggs to question their integrity. It's an unsettling account of an editorial board with few apparent scruples and even less journalistic competence.  

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants you to know that our government is still building a monument to racism, aka that damn fence.

Justin at Asian American Action Fund has Linsanity.

Neil at Texas Liberal offered a first look at the 2012 Green Party Presidential ticket.
