“TEXAS CHILI COOK-OFF”

Disclaimer: I didn’t write this piece, I am merely posting it and after having participated in a couple of Texas Chili cook-offs in years past I can tell you, NO PERSON IN THEIR RIGHT MIND puts BEANS in Texas Chili, it will get you thrown OUT of any reputable chili cook-off.

“TEXAS CHILI COOK-OFF”

Chili in a pot

The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named “FRANK”, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast:

Frank: “Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The Judge #3 called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge’s table asking for directions to the beer booth when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn’t be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted.”

Here are the scorecards from the event:

Chili # 1 Mike’s Maniac Mobster Monster Chili:
Judge # 1 — A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
Judge # 2 — Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
Judge # 3 — (Frank) Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that’s the worst one. These Texans are crazy.  Continue reading

2016 Republicans use Trump, TV to make debate cut

2016 Republicans use Trump, TV to make debate cut

Donkey and Elephant

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Rick Perry is attacking Donald Trump’s credibility and branding the billionaire businessman “a cancer on conservatism.” Rick Santorum, a conservative stalwart, popped up on a TV program popular with liberals. Lindsey Graham set his cellphone on fire.

With the first debate of the Republican presidential campaign approaching, the White House hopefuls are trying everything they can to improve their polling position. A candidate needs to place in the top 10 in an average of national polls to meet the criteria Fox News Channel has set to take the stage Aug. 6 in Cleveland. Full Story Here

Let me make one thing perfectly clear, I am NOT a Democrat or a Liberal, I DO however read many of their stories and peruse their sites, I have to. You see, a wise man once said, *Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer.”

That said; The Daily Kos is a Left Wing sewer, populated by the nastiest Libtard RATs you could ever imagine, but they DO have one redeeming quality, they give us a good look into the mindset of the Democratic Party and the DNC. As such, I gather a good bit of usable information from their site. It’s a shame that the strategists at the GOP/RNC can’t seem to do likewise.

What follows is an OLD piece from The Daily Kos, from 2008, and if you were to remove the word Democratic from this little tirade and replace it with Republican or Conservative, you would see an accurate description of the GOP/RNC and most members of the Party at this very point in time.

Let’s Fight the Rightwing Bastards, Not Each Other
I am becoming increasingly dismayed with the tone of the Democratic primary campaign. Charges of racism are being hurled. Charges of corruption are being hurled. And the insults flying back and forth on DKos between supporters of the various Democratic candidates have been sickening and depressing. Well, I don’t think I’m alone among the 147,000+ members of the site in saying: ENOUGH! Have we forgotten who our political enemies really are?

The GOP/RNC have forgotten who our enemy truly is, or they are totally in *ignore mode* and denial because the accusations that have been made about the GOP having become the Democratic Party as the Democrats move into full-blown Marxism are 100% true and accurate.  Continue reading

Texas is a Nation

Some of us weren’t lucky enough to have been born in Texas, I am one of those not born here but still claim Texas as my HOME.

I was born about 20 miles across the Texas and Louisiana state line but I still got here as fast as I could. I was 6 months old when my folks moved to Odessa back in the days of  oil boom in the Permian Basin.

The die was cast and I have been, except for a bit of my childhood when I had no choice, a Texan tried and true, and I have spent the better part of my 61 years living in Texas!

Texas truly is a *State of Mind*, and sure, we get called a lot of names by Yankees, the Left, the Libs, you know who I mean, and surprisingly, a few of them claim to be native Texans, but I have some serious doubts about that Texas birthright they claim. Continue reading

Disavowed by GOP leaders, Trump has supporters cheering

Disavowed by GOP leaders, Trump has supporters cheering

Trump Pic 1CONCORD NH (AP) — The Republican establishment may hope this is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump’s circus-like run for the presidency.

But as the fallout intensifies after the billionaire businessman mocked Sen. John McCain’s war hero status, Trump’s supporters are more excited than ever about his chances. SOURCE

I happen to like Trump’s style and I will support Donald J. Trump for as long as he is a viable candidate, even if it’s as an Independent candidate. If that causes you to not like me, if it gives you problems, just dump me from your friends list or daily blog list, you don’t need to try and start a name-calling pissing contest. ‪#‎Trump2016Trump Quote 1
