Remember when I said the Roe reversal would come back to haunt us? Turns out I was right. Pessimism does pay off.

Kansas rejected one this summer. California (prop … Continue reading Pyrrhic victories part II
Big Beef is to Blame

Republicans and those on the right need to work with willing democrats to bust trusts. I have a bullet point list of some beef industry … Continue reading Big Beef is to Blame
Quick note: another fraud pastor exposed
JD Hall, a Calvinist pastor and speaker who spent years attacking every other ministry for every infraction is now trying to cover up his own transgressions.

Twitter is the best place to receive news, build an audience, and communicate with them if you are only doing written content. The problem with … Continue reading Why I hate Twitter
Roe and Casey overruled. No right to abortion. State issue
The Supreme Court just overruled 2 abortion cases, finding no constitutional right to abortion. Let the chaos begin. Even though it’s still legal for the states to have abortion, democrats will come out in droves and retaliate.

In the last general election, 89,000+ voted democrat while only 52,000 voted … Continue reading Mayra Flores isn’t a trend. Texas isn’t swinging.
