When it comes to confrontation with Russia, not getting engaged militarily is nothing new for the US. A lot of folks are comparing events in Ukraine with the Cuban missile that JFK faced.
I think a better analog is the 1956 Hungarian revolt, which reflected badly on President Eisenhower and the ...

I'm told that 2 very influential & rich Texas boosters have circumvented the UT athletic department and made contact with Saban's agent for a 7 year deal for $70 mil. I know who they are but won't mention them by name. Most likely won't happen because of the political hurdles at UT, but they have ...

Not buying it, but the writer does make you wonder a bit. No doubt Reynolds is the strike out king of kings. But totally blind? Maybe this article is a total spoof.

Even if they had possession of drugs, which they didn't, the police actions would have been worse that the criminal offense. Hopefully these cops will be fired and the State of Texas will get hit with a large financial judgement.

Its bad enough that Texas has a mongoloid for a governor, but this guy is a great example or right-wing hysteria.

Seems like the best forum to post this, since I found it very entertaining and quite insane on many levels. I discovered this after reading an article about a man recently sentenced to beheading after wiping out 2 people. I couldn't stop watching it, it is so bizarre.

I've yet to know 1 person who is passionate about this guy. It seems his greatest strength is that he isn't Obama. I'm looking for positive comments about the man & how his presidency will enrich the country. I tend to vote For a candidate, not against another. I will vote for Ron Paul in the Te...

But don't take it too seriously. Not picking on Mississippi. I live in Texas and I'd wager that you could find 10 times the number of folks like this here. Fancy editing & stereotyping can be entertaining too.
