10 Things This Week

1.  NASA lands rover on Mars and takes never before seen pictures. A proud day for the National Aeronautic Space Agency.  A proud day indeed!
President Obama assumes total blame for destroying, dismantling, and disbanding NASA in 2009. What a failure, huh???

2. While NASA watches Mars in awe, I, with equal awe, watch Mick Mars in San Antonio. Whatever sick, twisted, demented vision Motley Crue may have had in the past, they're now able to express it through an elaborate stage show that is so dark, it features a black sabbath mass, a walking dead man (Mars), and squirting.(You heard me) I fear I may be scarred for life.

3. The Olympics have entered my brain like an earwig. Chewing and gnawing their way into my central nervous system. Besides the hours of total boredom and dismay, I've actually been encouraged to get out of the house and exercise. Yes exercise. It's better than watching the egregious, "Rhythmic Gymnastics." After all, there's only so much Hula-Hooping one man can take.

4. If you love "Rock N Roll," then "KISS" is still the best show ever. Period. Words cannot describe it.

5. Why are we still in Afghanistan? What is the threat, exactly? I think the American people have a right to know.

6. Why is GITMO still open? What is the threat, exactly? I think the American people have a right to know.

7. Obama may not deserve to be reelected. Yeah I said it. At the same time, he damn sure didn't deserve the sad state of affairs the country was in when he took office. What will Obama do for the liberal progressive base? (Nothing) When will he stop playing the middle? (Never)

8. Doctors don't know Shiite about diets, and if they do, they aren't telling us. The latest research is showing that fat from proteins don't cause high cholesterol, sugar does...

9. The San Antonio Riverwalk has lost it's charm and become a corporate conservative, queso, death march. I've had better meals at Taco Bueno (that didn't empty my wallet). San Antonio is an OLD city and is in desperate need of a downtown facelift. Do you think you're in Mexico when you drive thru it? That's because you are.

10. Liberty Pizza in Jarrell, TX is a little slice of freedom.
Check it out next time you're through there.
It's next to the Flying J truck stop off 35. Belissimo! COME AND TAKE IT...or they deliver...

Weekly Wrangle

The Texas Progressive Alliance was up early this morning to watch Curiosity stick its landing on Mars, and salutes NASA for its outstanding job as it brings you this week's roundup.

Off the Kuff rounded up the Republican and Democratic primary runoff results.  

BossKitty at TruthHugger was on a roll this week. Always disgusted at the deliberate distractions from urgent issues by political campaigns, the contempt red-lined in Candidate State of Denial: Why Can't They Buy Rain?, and Bitter Governors Screw 6 Million People out of health insurance. BossKitty also mourns the passing of a past co-worker named Sally Ride.

Local property tax elections are the result of state leaders shirking their duty and passing the buck to local ISD's. WCNews at Eye on Williamson posts that the plan to defund public education continues.

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart choked again last Tuesday night trying to count election results, and PDiddie at Brains and Eggs doesn't believe any excuse the man makes at this point.  

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants everyone to know that Henry Cuellar is a rat.

Over at TexasKaos, lightseeker rags on about Poisonous Hypocrisy and Those Who Practice It. Rick Perry and Reagan and Palin have more in common than people know.

Neil at Texas Liberal posted that the very first historical marker at the San Jacinto Battlefield Park just outside Houston -- where Texas Independence was won -- notes the gift of cannons from the people of Cincinnati. Full self-reliance is a myth... most especially in Texas.


David Dewhurst reportedly spent "a little less" than $20 million dollars of his personal wealth on his losing US Senate race.
