Pew Pew Texas

Pew Pew Texas

Texas: Where walking through the mall with a switchblade in your pocket is illegal, but strapping an AR15 on your back is a God-given right. I tweeted that the other day, in response to this. In short, this guy Derek Poe owned (past tense) a store in the local shopping mall called Golden Triangle Tactical and decided to drum up some publicity, stir up some controversy, come up with a way to break his lease, exercise his 2nd amendment right...

Not A #Beauliever

Not A #Beauliever

I am old. This should come as no surprise to anyone, since I’m always angry about something. This is a trait common to us elderly. And by elderly, I mean those in our late 30s, which is pretty much knocking on death’s door where twenty-somethings are concerned. And that’s probably how it should be. Still, the annoying thing about youth is it always thinks it’s doing something new and that it got there first. But it...

Dashing Through The Dogma In A One Horse Open Sleigh

Dashing Through The Dogma In A One Horse Open Sleigh

Today’s essay is a little different from what I’ve been writing as of late, and I hope that my faith in my readers is not misplaced when I tell you that I think you can handle this.

It’s a little long and a little messy, but it’s what came out when I sat...

Ridiculous Baby Headbands

Ridiculous Baby Headbands

Look. Babies are more or less bald and, unless you’re a parent, they’re kinda goofy looking. That’s just how it is. Why can’t we, as a nation, accept this simple fact? And by nation, I mean STOP IT, MOMS. Your baby is a baby. Let it be a baby. Stop making it a fashion accessory upon which to project your own hideous tastes for all the world to see. Because the rest of us are tired of looking at that thing on your...

Now Everybody Hates Me

Now Everybody Hates Me

This post isn’t going to win me any friends, and will likely create more than a few new enemies. I should probably know better than to write this, but I’m me. And I never did learn. If you’re familiar with my ongoing coverage of the tragedy that is the Beaumont Independent School District, then chances are you know what I’m about to write, and what you’re about to read. But you’re wrong. I promise. With...

The Nottapocalypse

The Nottapocalypse

As I write this, it’s September 12, 2013 and I’m in Texas, smack in the middle of the Bible Belt where you can’t throw a rock without hitting someone who thinks the current situation in Syria was foretold in the Bible and we’re entering the End Times. But, considering that someone, somewhere has been preaching that all the signs of the end of days prophecies are being fulfilled for as long as we’ve had end of...
