About Me

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.

Currently on vacation

in Colorado. First time here. Beautiful place. We are up in the mountains among a TON of snow with more on the way soon. Anyway, we live right outside Houston and drove straight up into Wichita, Kansas where we stayed overnight before continuing on into Colorado. Let me just say, holy cow! Driving from Wichita into Colorado seemed to take FOREVER! I'm serious, that half of Kansas felt like it was larger than Texas. I'm guessing it's because there is not a lot to see except flat land. Houses were extremely few and far between. I commented to my wife and daughter that I felt like we were stuck in some sort of time loop, that we would never make it out of Kansas. Now, I hope I'm not coming off as rude, as I'm not trying to be. I was just not aware that there was so much empty space!
I do have to say, however, that I was absolutely shocked at the massive wind farms that are located in Kansas. It actually made me happy and excited to see this. I don't know, I just didn't expect to see these towering windmills by the hundreds upon hundreds planted on huge swaths of land in a red state. I guess I've just been naive. It just seems legislators from these red areas act like they hate the thought of renewable energy, but yet there it is, all over Kansas.
Seeing this gave me a glimmer of hope that maybe things are moving in the right direction, albeit very slowly. Way to go Kansas.

Let's see...

It'll be a secret candidate who jumps in at the last moment. I won't reveal who it is, but i will say i have been talking with Miss Cleo about it...

***Official "let's hunt down and beat the shit out of anyone responsible for russian bots" thread***

Oh, and while we're at it, let's beat the shit out of putin. Once that's taken care of, maybe we can be civil to one another again.

Oh Dan Crenshaw...

You might want to stay in your lane, bro. Your cute little attempt at shade throwing regarding a 70% marginal tax rate on the unnecessarily super rich didn't go over so well. AOC schooled your ignorant ass by using actual facts.

If you haven't seen the exchange between the hyper intelligent AOC and the "i don't know how in the fuck this douche got elected" wannabe who "represents" my district, i encourage you to check it out. These redumblican "men" keep lobbing these softballs to AOC and she keeps CRUSHING them out of the park. You would think these knuckle dragging goobers would learn, but then again, they are redumblicans. They are either incapable or unwilling to crack a book, or hell, just Google some shit.

I love watching her as she continues to be the much needed spear in the side of this elephant. My fanboy crush is growing, not just for her, but for this entire freshman class. Don't let up!!!


I just turned on my TV this morning and Rudolph's Shiny New Year is on. I've never seen it. Let me just say, this LSD trip of a holiday show is CA-REE-PEE!!! thanks mom for keeping this nightmare away from me as a child.

I just voted.

In Texas. But i never trust my vote is being counted because i live here. Also, I'm worried they will try some shenanigans because i had to initial next to my name because "your middle name isn't on your registration" even though the rest of my name as well as my address matches my drivers license!!! Dear lord, people!!!! I guess we'll see...

Wow. Just wow.

just finished watching the cnn town hall with beto. Listening to him speak brings tears to my eyes. I'm a 42 year old man, but there is just something about him. It's Obamaesque. There is hope for our future. Not just in Texas, but i believe nationwide. I know he said he has no plans for running for prez, but i believe it's inevitable. Right now, i feel damn proud to be a Texan. It's been a long time since I've been able to say that.

I have this image

of Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray's character from Kingpin) celebrating after defeating Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson's character), and I am convinced that is how trump will react if the repukes keep both the house and Senate this November. That thought alone is enough to motivate me to vote early. Ugh, i hope we at least get 250 house seats.

USA Today

has an article about "The Democratic Party Left Me Behind". The few lines i read go on to say, "and I'm not the only one." Something else about blah, blah, hatred from the left, blah blah. The bots have infected some staff writer apparently. I hope normal people aren't stupid enough to believe this horseshit.


russia is out of the world cup, defeated by Croatia in penalty kicks!
