Before you praise Dan Crenshaw....

You might want to look at Dan Crenshaw platform before ooooing and ahhhing over him.

  • Guns on demand. As with his party he talks a tough game on background checks (only) but his party will not do anything. Other than that it is guns on demand for everyone. Want an Uzi? You got it!
  • Military spending. He supports Trump's military build up and his attack on our allies.
  • Supports the tax cut. He supports the tax cut for the 2% which has cratered the deficit.
  • Supports cutting Social Security. In order to pay for the tax cuts he supports cutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare. All to appease the 2%.
  • Abortion. No surprises here.
  • Immigration. Supports building the wall, separating families, and trump's immigration plans.
  • Religious discrimination. Believes in discriminating of those who have different religious beliefs. He calls it "Freedom". The freedom to discriminate.
  • School Vouchers. He supports school vouchers allowing the rich to pick and choose their own schools.
  • Free Speech. He believes we are too "politically correct". Whatever that means.
  • Healthcare. Yells SOCIALISM every chance he gets. He wants us to go back to the way it was before the Affordable Care Act. His positions have all been shown to be bad ideas and have never been implemented for good reasons. He basically has no idea of what he is talking about. Luck for him and his family, they are covered for life by the US Military.
  • Doesn't believe in climate change. Nothing to see here. Typical anti-science republican.
Crenshaw was given a great opportunity to look like a human being on Saturday Night Live. He made the best of it acting like he is the middle of the road, let's come together, blah blah blah, type of guy. He isn't. 

NOTE: I was incorrect. The Houston Chronicle Endorsed Todd Lurton not Crenshaw. 


Rebooting the Harris County Republican Party

The out going Harris County Judge, Ed Emmett, says the Harris County Republican Party needs a reboot after getting a boot shoved so far up their butt their breath will smell like Desenex for the next two years. Emmett waited a bit too long to finally speak up.

I'm sure the HCRP is not interested in very pointed ideas coming from a former Republican but here are some ideas they might want to consider:


  1. Dump Trump. You made a mistake in 2016. Trump has turned your party into a group of racist, lying, cheating, conspiracy theory, rotten assholes. That stench might be hard to wash off but wash you must.
  2. Don't be racist. It's sad someone has to tell you not to be a racist. Racism is bad. Really, really, baaaaad. Not only should you not be a racist you should speak out against those who are., immediately and forcefully. Your party tolerates and condones racism. That must stop.
  3. Stop acting like a bag of dicks. Seriously. Why do you have to praise people like Sid Miller the mini trump of the Texas Republican Party. Can't you at least act as if you have the title "The Honorable" in front of your name?
  4. Don't call women the C word. Again. Why do we have to tell you this? You are not in Jr. High. Grow up and treat women with respect and call out those who don't. If you are a republican woman who is condoning this type of behavior maybe a course on self esteem is warranted.
  5. Stop suppressing the vote. Everyone citizen has the right to vote and should have the right to exercise that right. You act like you want to restrict voting by making it harder to register and harder to vote. Stop it.
  6. Dump the NRA. They have become a boat anchor. Americans are tired of being shot. High school kids are rising up for this issue alone. You are on a long term losing path. Even the NRA was silent during this election. They are hurting you. No one is coming for your guns. Start acting like it.
  7. Stop lying. No one is coming for our guns. There isn't an invasion coming from the south. There is no voter fraud. There is no need for a voter ID. There were no WMDs. Stop lying to your party members.
  8. Stop spending money. What the hell happened to the "Fiscally Conservative" party? Our country under republican rule now has a $1Trillion deficit just so your party could give your donors a huge tax cut.
  9. Embrace health care. No one wants to mortgage their house to pay for treatment for their kids. Your health care plan has failed. 
  10. Stop saying "Conservative".  And finally, you are not conservative. Stop saying your are. You no longer have conservative or family values. As I have said before:
Conservatives do not mock the disabled.
They don't create massive out of control deficits.
They don't make jokes about those dying of cancer.
They don't violate or ignore the laws of our country.
They don't tolerate sexual abuse.
They don't tolerate family violence.
They don't interrupt people while talking.
They don't call people names.
They don't say racist things.
They don't refer to Native Americans as "Pocahontas"
They don't make fun of other peoples language.
They don't call people of color "rapists".
They don't call Muslims "terrorists".
They don't endorse hate groups, the KKK, or white supremacy.
They don't disrespect elected officials even those they disagree with.
They don't lie. Every. Single. Day.
They don't walk around with loaded assault weapons in public.

Harris County Republic Party fails at voter suppression

Alan Vera (from village republic women)
I said it last week:
According to the Press the Harris County Republican Party’s Ballot Security Committee has issued 4000 challenges to voter registration which the County Tax Assessor must respond to with the letter received by residents of the Third Ward. According to republicans this is a legal tactic much like conspiring with Russia to win an election. I wonder what would happen if the County Attorney took action and investigated this a bit deeper.

Well, they did. From the Houston Chronicle:
The Harris County Attorney’s office said Tuesday that the 4,000 voter registrations challenged by a county Republican Party official were invalid, and the voter registrar should not have sent suspension notices to more than 1,700 county voters.

And BOOM! Bitch. I guess I need to rescind my challenge of Alan Vera, the chairman of the Harris County Republic Party’s Ballot Security Committee. Its sad that they even have a Ballot Security Committee. You would think someone like Vera, a former Director at Greater Houston Partnership would have something better to do than voter suppression. Maybe like voter registration or trying to convince a group of young people of color that the republic party isn't a bunch of racist, politically ignorant, lying, corrupt bag of dicks.

According to the Chronicle Vera will "Take up follow-up actions" so I guess reaching out to young people of color isn't going to happen. SAD!

Rotting from the head down: Harris County Republic Party.

As the saying goes: A fish rots from the head down. There is nothing worse than the smell of a rotting fish and the Harris County republic party is stinking up the joint. From the Houston Press:

Harris County residents keen to vote in the upcoming midterm elections should be very careful about checking their mail. Recently, some residents of Third Ward received letters informing them of an address change they had not actually filed and which, if not answered, would put their franchise into suspension. It looks to be the result of a Republican-led challenge to thousands of Houston voters.

According to the Press the Harris County Republican Party’s Ballot Security Committee has issued 4000 challenges to voter registration which the County Tax Assessor must respond to with the letter received by residents of the Third Ward. According to republicans this is a legal tactic much like conspiring with Russia to win an election. I wonder what would happen if the County Attorney took action and investigated this a bit deeper.

It doesn't seem legal, or American, for a group of white wing individuals to specifically target a group of people based upon certain parameters such as race or location. The Third Ward is predominately African American. If this is a targeted attack on specific voters it would seem this would be illegal and a form of voter suppression.

We shouldn't be surprised on how low the republic party would go. After all they conspired with Russia to win an election. Hopefully the County Attorney will look into this.
