  • Neanderthal Greg
    March 4, 2021

    HarrisVotes put out their new tagline or slogan yesterday.  Here it is:

    Where Democracy Meets Innovation.

    I get it.  They also just got new voting machine gizmos that they will roll out for the May 1 local elections with early voting beginning on April 19 – less than two months from today.  The City of Pasadena and Pasadena ISD are among those that will be voting on May 1.

    HarrisVotes tweeted out the new voting gizmos a few days ago that included a video on how to use them.  The new gizmos include the use of paper.  It is an innovation for sure.

    They are different from the current method we have been using for nearly a couple of decades.  It would be nice if HarrisVotes conducted an awareness campaign on their new innovation, directed at the political jurisdictions whose voters will be voting next month.  You don’t want them to show up at their polling location and getting surprised.  You know, all that jibber jabber about the election integrity thing. Just saying.

    All these years, Texas Democrats have never been able to rattle Gov. Greg Abbott. President Joe Biden called out Abbott on “Neanderthal thinking” and Abbott went ballistic and lost it on Channel 2 news yesterday.  President Biden using the Neanderthal word was the polite way of calling Abbott a dumbarse.

    Abbott got so riled up he went to the stale hater playbook and blamed new COVID-19 infections on President Biden releasing COVID-19 positive immigrants into our living rooms. That is not happening and is a lie. Abbott looked so silly and overmatched. Tragic.

    President Biden has Neanderthal Greg’s number. Nice.

    Way to go, Mr. President! Keep kicking his sorry worthless arse.

    Here is the Channel 2 story: EXCLUSIVE: Abbott responds to criticism about order to rescind statewide mask mandate (click2houston.com).

    From Luis Salinas on Gov. Greg Abbott’s Open for Business 100%:

    The best comment I heard was: “Here in Texas, we going to remove all the red lights but ask people to act responsibly.”

    Astros pitcher Framber Valdez dinged up his left ring finger – a fracture.

    My Astros account executive sent me this yesterday:

    Abbott’s announcement yesterday is good news for baseball! I know you are anxious for updates, but as of today (March 3rd), I have not been briefed on the new plan for this season since the governor lifted restrictions. Upper management is finalizing the remaining details, and we are waiting on MLB and the City of Houston to approve new capacity standards in the ballpark. We want to ensure that we can accommodate fans safely and efficiently, and we will inform you as soon as everything is approved. Thank you for your patience with this!

    I won’t be going to The Yard anytime soon.

  • Open for Business 100%
    March 3, 2021

    Gov. Greg Abbott is the retreater-in-chief.  A political coward. 

    Abbott is following the science.  The political science.  He is worried about his extremist right-wing base that will challenge him in the 2022 Republican primary.  

    He has botched the handling of the pandemic for a year now.  He didn’t have us prepared for the big freeze.  He is now panicking and giving in to the right-wingers by lifting the mask mandate.

    He doesn’t care about your life or mine.  He only cares about his sorry political arse.

    Opening 100% and lifting the mask mandate is just going to cause more folks to get sick and die.

    Commentary will continue to wear a mask and act responsibly. 

    Texas is one of the lousiest performing states when it comes to the pandemic. 

    Abbott said this yesterday on his action:

    “This does not remove personal responsibility.”

    What a joke. We are one of the worse because Abbott has allowed and encouraged folks not to be responsible.

    Those who have been responsible will continue to do so.

    Those who haven’t will continue not to be responsible.

    March 2, 2021 will go down in Texas history as one of the worse in Texas leadership.

    We are being ridiculed nationally – deservedly, might I add.

    Unbelievable. That’s all I have to say.

  • Texas Independence Day
    March 2, 2021

    If my brother Mike were still alive, he would be celebrating his 70th birthday today.

    If Karen Carpenter was still around, she would be celebrating her 71st birthday today and she would still have one of the all-time greatest voices.

    Speaking of the Texas Electric Greed, err Grid, today is Texas Independence Day. That’s funny.  185 years ago today.

    My tweet photo today is actor Richard Widmark and his seven-barrel shotgun from the movie “The Alamo” when he played Jim Bowie.  I think that is the only seven-barrel shotgun I have ever seen.  You didn’t think he was going to fight off the Mexican army with just his famous knife.

    Royko sent me this on my mention yesterday on Sen. Cancun Cruz:

    “515,000 are dead in this country due to” the (deleted racially insensitive and incorrect name of) virus is a bogus number. It includes any death where the seemingly biased health departments test and find evidence where the dead person has virus anti-bodies even if they died of a heart attack, or by a car accident.

    Far more citizens have died from heart attacks, stroke, and other diseases.

    If the Dems truly cared about “lives” they wouldn’t fund Planned Parenthood, known to harvest baby parts for the cash, and is considered a greedy evil organization started by a racist who mastered Eugenics, and has killed tens of millions of unborn innocent, mostly minority, babies.

    Wrong again.  Not even close.

    My “The Wizard of Oz” wall calendar for March has a photo of Toto with the Wicked Witch’s “and your little dog too” quote.  One of cinema’s truly scary quotes.

    The Beatles calendar has a photo of the four from 1963.

    Did you know that in 1979, Astros pitcher Joe Niekro and his brother Phil, with The ATL, each had 21 wins to lead the NL?  Now you know.

  • Electric Greed
    March 1, 2021

    A local Republican elected official in a conversation with me this past weekend referred to the state’s electric grid as the electric greed.  Good line from a Republican or from anyone for that matter.

    Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Sen. John Cornyn were with President Joe Biden in H-Town this past Friday.  That is where they were supposed to be, so good for them.

    U.S. Sen. Cancun Cruz was at the CPAC conference in Orlando praising Donald Trump while a bunch of folks in Texas are still without running water.  At CPAC, Cancun Cruz also took the time to poke fun at the virus and mask wearing.  That’s funny? I guess he forgot that 515,000 are dead in this country due to COVID-19, including over 43,000 Texans.  This guy is clueless.

    We now have a third vaccine. We need to continue to mask up and not let up. Let’s not get stupid.

    From the Nope Department, some fella at CPAC said this about talking to real folks at diners across America:

    “They’re not talking about esoteric things that the Ivy League talks about. They’re talking about things like the Bible, standing for the national anthem … and the 10th Amendment.”

    They probably know about the Second Amendment, have a vague notion of the First, and may have invoked the Fifth, but the Tenth – nope.

    I can now operate my kitchen sink after it went out during the freeze because of pipe issues.  I also got a small but nagging leak fixed.  I am kind of back to normal. 

    I spent most of the past weekend at my Dad’s in Baytown.  I didn’t get to watch the Golden Globes.  This past year, I have not really gotten to watch any of the flicks or TV shows that were nominated.  I am way behind if you know what I mean.

    From the Chron this past Friday:

    Saint Arnold is saying farewell to Santo, a black Kölsch that’s been on the brewery’s regular rotation since 2011 and became one of its top-selling brands over the past decade. The very last batch of Santo is on shelves now.

    I have had it. It wasn’t on my go to Saint Arnold very short list. 

    Some of Tiger’s fellow PGAers wore the red and black yesterday. Way to go.

    The Astros started playing Spring Training games yesterday.

  • Got It
    February 26, 2021

    I went to the Northside Health Center yesterday morning around 9:30 am. They told me that they were only administering the first dose at that location.  They then made a call and sent me to the Acres Homes site where the second dose was being administered.  I went there and they gave me my shot.

    I was back at my place by 11:15 am.

    Yesterday afternoon, I got a call from Houston Health wanting to set up an appointment for me for my second dose. Sigh.

    I now have a sense of relief that my Dad, my older sister and I have our second doses. My younger sister will get her second on Monday.  We still have to mask up and take precautions, but still, it feels a whole lot better.  As of this morning, I am not experiencing any side effects, just a slightly sore arm.

    The Chron has a front-page story on Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo getting it right on warning us about the freeze and comparing it to a Cat 5 hurricane.  Her haters are never going to get used to her running county government and we know why. She is doing a real good job and some folks just can’t muster up the courage to say so.

    State legislators held hearings on the freeze yesterday.  Most of them sounded real upset.  Do you really think they are going to address last week’s issues?  In order to do that, they have to hold Gov. Greg Abbott accountable.  Commentary is not betting the public will be served.  As it gets warmer – well, you get the picture.

    First Lady Jill Biden and President Joe Biden will visit H-Town today. 

    I mentioned last year when Baseball Hall of Fame great Al Kaline left us. He played for the Tigers.  Did you know that he was the youngest starting player in the history of the MLB All Star Game?  He was 20.  Now you know.

    In 1980, Jose Cruuuuuz finished third in the NL MVP Award voting after batting .302 with 91 RBIs and 36 stolen bases.  Hall of Fame great Mike Schmidt won the award and Hall of Fame great Gary Carter was runner-up.  Now you know, again.
