What a Difference a Day Makes: Why I retract my statement on voting for Trump

If you are like me, you are sickened by the recent tape released of Donald Trump talking about women in vulgar ways. LANGUAGE WARNING IN VIDEO.

It's like listening to a 15-year-old pubescent teen beating his chest in bravado, while pretending to all the other high school guys that he bedded one of the cheerleaders. This is not the talk of someone in their 50s. It's juvenile and amplifies his true self. As a grown man, the fact that he even thinks these things about women and verbalizes them to others without any compunction whatsoever, should frighten everyone.

Even Senator Mike Lee released a video statement asking for Trump to step aside and let the GOP deal with selecting a reasonable candidate to take his place.

In a recorded apology from Trump, his first inclination is to nanny boo all over Bill Clinton's past abusive behavior as justification for having uttered such things, and a reason he should be forgiven. Oh, I see. Just transfer the blame and move on. That may work for the simpletons that voted for this man to begin with, but that doesn't work for principled people.

I honestly don't know what to tell you, dear readers. I would advise you to select your candidate based upon your principles, and because of this I can no longer even consider voting for Donald Trump. I certainly won't vote for Hillary Clinton.

In this case, I feel I have to retract my previous statements about voting for Trump and do a write-in instead. As a conservative, what other option am I left with?

The only reasonable way for the GOP to move ahead is as Lee said, and that is with Trump stepping aside. But we know this will not happen because of the sheer arrogance of this idiot.

I hope the people who voted for Trump in the primaries are happy with themselves because there is no way Trump will win now. None. Any idiot can see there will be scores of conservatives who cannot and will not vote for him.

If the GOP wasn't dead already, clearly it is now.

Another Wylie Football Player Falls From Grace

Photo credit: Alan Doster,  USA TODAY Sports

This time former Pirate Nikita Whitlock is the focus of bad behavior, with his suspension from the Giants, for performance enhancing drugs (PED). As we saw from my blog post on former Raider CJ Pierson's multiple misdemeanor arrests, Wylie football players are not immune from making poor choices.

According to a article by James Kratch, this PED suspension results in Nikita sitting out for 10 games, unpaid (his 2016 $525,000 salary) and shunned from contact with the Giants. According to the rules, the 10 game suspension means this is his second offence. His first was a four game suspension last year, and if he is caught again, he will receive a two season suspension.

Too bad a stellar football player feels the need to take PEDs. What a waste of talent, but I suspect in this day of hyper-competitiveness, some athletes feel they need an edge.

Spilling the Beans on Katrina Pierson - Part Two

What a scowl. Despite the $10K+ she's being paid monthly by Donald Trump's campaign to be his national spokesperson, turns out Katrina Pierson doesn't appear to have much to smile about these days.

As if my previous Spilling the Beans on Katrina Pierson and The Texas Shrew blog posts weren't enough to leave you in a perpetual state of WTH, wait, there's more.

While posing in her Ivanka Trump dress on Twitter, and comparing herself to Rand Paul's wife in the same dress back in May 2015, it looks like her apple wasn't falling very far from that tree.

The story begins in 2012.

For one reason or another, Pierson yanked her son from Garland High School. She told me that he wanted to play football so she moved him to Wylie East High School, where she said her ex-husband lived at the time.

She would cheer at his games here in Wylie, and even update her Facebook profile with photos of him playing on the field.

Shortly after her failed congressional race and her incessant need to be in the spotlight while touring the news talk shows, her son was getting arrested for criminal trespass.

Then there is the vehicle burglary in Collin County, but the Trump campaign had already called in November.

Katrina has spent her time standing on stages, smiling prettily, or flashing that plastic smile in concert with the phony FOX and CNN news show hosts she sidled up to.

It's all so dizzying, isn't it? However, I actually feel sorry for him. Poor kid.

How would you like to have your mother's face all over the television and her attention fixated on Donald Trump's campaign?

Truth is, the apple didn't fall all that far from the tree because baby momma was arrested back in 1997 for shoplifting with her seven-month-old little boy in tow.

We can thank Pete Sessions' campaign for sharing those details far and wide when she ran for Congress against him in 2014.

Katrina Pierson House Still Sports Ted Cruz Campaign Signs

I love Google maps. I love Google maps so much because of this priceless photo of Katrina Pierson's home in Garland, Texas taken in 2012 which still shows all of her Ted Cruz signs.

By the way, Pierson is currently Donald Trump's national spokesperson, and she has spent much of her time bashing Cruz and his wife during the primary. Whoops.

Well played, Google, well played.

Anti-American Brats Do Not Define Us

As a constitutional conservative, I am taking a different stance on the numskulls moved to disrespect our national anthem and flag. I am of the mind that it is their right. After all, they have the freedom to act like buffoons in this great nation because better men and women fought for that right.

As Kaepernick sat out our national anthem because he feels his liberties have been stifled, check out the extensive shoe collection he was able to amass under such an oppressive, liberty-stealing nation. These people actually live and breathe among us, and they are bent on tearing everyone down with them.

What is ignored for that coveted 15 minutes of fame is that many black and white Americans are fighting side-by-side for all of the liberties we enjoy, including the lives of millions of black babies aborted, thanks to Planned Parenthood's genocidal goals to extinguish a race.

We are paid back by being assaulted with Cal-State's ludicrous offering to recycle segregation with black-only housing on campus. Nothing like setting people back some odd years. Surely Rosa Parks and MLK are rolling violently over in their graves.

In a moment of self-righteous insanity, Colin Kaepernick decided to take the country on as he refused to stand for the National Anthem late last month, and the lesser known soccer player, Megan Rapinoe followed suit, claiming solidarity.
Really? Rapinoe thinks that as a gay woman, her liberties have not been protected by our flag? Yes, the same piece of cloth she has wrapped herself in. Gee, I wonder how she would fare in the Middle East, poor thing.

Not surprising behavior, considering nearly every gay-rights parade brings the obligatory flag burning with it. Just Google "gay rights parade and American flag" to see what I mean.

The fact is, the majority of Americans don't give a crap if you are black, white, brown or rainbow colored. We just want to get on with the business of raising our families. You certainly don't see hetero-pride parades marching down Anystreet USA. Get over yourselves already.

While I will continue to fight for anyone's right to disrespect our national anthem, our flag, and our country,  I will continue to believe their anger and hatred is displaced in a country where anything goes, including a bi-sexual felon and a reality television star running for president to replace a hateful black man who spent his precious time in the White House destroying our national sovereignty.

Just imagine what these two could have done by uplifting a nation instead of wallowing in their own self pity. What about the blacks caught in slavery throughout the third-world nations? What about the gays being tossed from the tops of buildings in the Middle East? Instead, these two greedy, petulant haves would rather whine about what they don't have in this nation that has given them so much compared to anyone else on the face of this planet.

I think their disrespectful behavior speaks volumes about what type of people the media is rearing in this country. These spoiled rotten brat types spotlighted by their makers do not provide an accurate definition of who Americans really are, and they should be called out for it.

The Signal is Always Greener on the Other Side

Image credit:
Ever wonder why the people of Wylie often have hostile resting faces? I've got the answer - traffic lights.

What is with the traffic lights in Wylie along 544? I feel like I am in traffic hell every time I have the displeasure of driving down that road. There are so many lights that during rush-hour traffic, you had better be in your designated lane because heaven help you if you need to change lanes before the next traffic light stops the mass. Hells, you barely get moving before you get stopped again. Every intersection brings a new Dr. Seuss chorus of, "Big F, little f what begins with F?"
Dr. Seuss

At any given time of the day, cars are stopped at every light along the route, even during rush hour when drivers are forced to close their eyes, hold their breath and change lanes, hoping they make it before the flood is stopped yet again. And with every new business that goes in with expansion, we add a new light of terror - yippee.

It's not like this is new or anything and we are waiting for them to fix the lights after recent construction; this has gone on for years.

I'm not alone in my irritation either, because I often see people at the front of the line making jackrabbit starts and speeding in an attempt to make it past the next light. Gee, and I thought traffic lights were supposed to help manage traffic and keep people safe? Silly me.

The lights have become the butt of many a social media joke over the years as well. Seriously, do our city administrators not travel the same roads we do? Kind of seems like they don't.

Still, even if the city was not responsible for the lights, it is well within their power to do something about it. Even in the countrified town of Lavon, they called TxDOT to manage their lights during construction and accidents on 78 to help their people out. And hey, TxDOT can be very responsive too. Honestly, it's not rocket science.

The lights are beyond ridiculous. I swear, it's like running the gauntlet and Wylie's working citizens are the one's being flogged.

Just in case you have not heard, lights are often set to force traffic to stop and perhaps entice drivers to shop at the array of stores flanking each stoplight. Yup, it's a thing.

Newsflash: Wylie is not a boutique destination, it's a, "I have a list and I need to get in and out of the Target big box store before I pick up the kids after school," kind of destination and the lights are not helping the people out. The lights are just pissing them off and adding to those scowl lines.

Whatever the trick, it's annoying, unproductive and wasting gas, and it's not parting people with their money when they would potentially have to negotiate six lanes of heavy traffic to make it into one of those stores.

Adding to the conundrum, Wylie is welcoming the new Collin College campus on Country Club along with additional traffic from 4000+ students, but they can't even get something as simple as a traffic light right, let alone two or three traffic lights.

Oh man, and don't even get me started about Country Club where, you guessed it, the few lights are also timed to stop you at every one of them. For progress in Wylie we certainly aren't very advanced when it comes to traffic management.

If you want to see how lights are done right, just take a drive down California's streets. With the butt-load of cars, their lights are not on timers. When a car approaches a light and there is nobody around, it changes just as the car approaches and then quickly changes back to green for the main road. Imagine that?

If there is nobody in the left turn lane, that light doesn't signal and make others wait for it to cycle through either. Oh, and in some areas after rush hour in the evening many of the lights turn to flashing yellow for the main artery, since a light is really useless when traffic is low.

And this was all back in the '80s when I lived there. So if loony Californians could figure that out thirty years ago wouldn't you think Wylie could figure that out now, bless our little hearts.

These simple traffic management strategies are the antithesis of lights in Texas where a completely deserted Country Club road could still promise a long wait at 10:00 p.m. on a Wednesday, despite Wylie's example of un-timed lights which can still stop you for irritatingly long lengths of time around town.

For goodness sake, even if someone approaches to turn right at one of our lights, it changes for them even after they are long gone. And let's not even get started on the left turn lights that allow two to three cars through during the lunch hour at 544 and Country Club, when an entire traffic line exists that would rival rush hour traffic. How stupid is that?

Still, if you want to promote Wylie, and you know it's so flipping far off the beaten path, why would you want to make the commute out of town to jobs and then back in again a virtual nightmare? Wouldn't you want to hasten people in and welcome them to your bosom? Even Preston Road from Plano to Richardson to Dallas gets it right, and if any road in Dallas had more shopping available to entice drivers, it's that road.

Wylie has taken a play right out of the playbook of those liberal areas like New York and Washington DC  where the dingle-berries believe access for bicyclists, pedestrians and a leisurely downtown shopping trip are in order rather than ease of getting home to your family so maybe, just maybe you can, uh, eat together before the kiddos run to soccer practice. Oh no, they want to part you from your dollars, your family and evidently your greenhouse gas emissions, while complaining about gas guzzling vehicles and our ozone disappearing. Um, hello?

Any way you look at it, the light situation is completely asinine when there is nothing worth stopping and looking at. We look silly and unless the lights are changed to something reasonable, our stony demeanor isn't going away anytime soon.

We may be one of the best places to live according to a couple of magazines, but we certainly aren't one of the most logical.

Donald Trump's New Clothes

Image credit:
I knew nothing good could come from supporting Donald Trump in the primaries, which is why I went full force for Ted Cruz. But people whined that they didn't like Cruz's staunch supporters, they thought he was polarizing, they didn't like that he changed his mind on a couple of things such as TPA. Um ya, after his constituents blasted him for trusting the DC cartel after which he realized the error of his ways. At least he didn't change his mind on critical aspects, gee, like his entire platform.

Cruz would have been infinitely better than the current twat we have running as a Republican.

I wrote previously that there was no way to round up millions of illegals and caravan them out of the country. Turns out, he must have realized that too because Trump is now backing off his harsh anti-illegal talk

Remember when Trump first made his rounds? Last September, in grandiose sweeps and pounding fists, he exclaimed to the world that he would build the wall and remove all of those pesky illegals. In fact, there was a run on the primary election booth last March as record numbers of people turned out to the polls to vote for that fairy tale. They turned out because they were sick of the illegal alien problem in this country and how much it is costing taxpayers

There was so much talk at that time, from people like Jeff Sessions, and even Pete Sessions who barnacled himself to Jeff in one of his primary fliers on illegal immigration. Where did all that strong talk go? Yup, I thought so. Crickets.

Where Trump strong-armed the public into voting for him because of his stance on illegal aliens, now, not so much. Believe him.

Now, all those people who ran to the polls, relaxed their tea party principles and even bad-mouthed conservatives who refused to buy into the bullditty, are now finding out why the rest of us did not want Trump. He's a moderate. The emperor has changed his clothes on national television, and it's embarrassing. 

The illegal alien problem did not suddenly go away. But Trump's tough talk sure did.

For those Trumpheads who turned away from Cruz, I told you so. Oh, and thanks for putting us in this pickle as polls across the country show the Hilldabeast ahead of Trump by double digits. 

One would think after eight years and running losers against the Democrats that Republicans would have learned. 

Republicans, you had one job.
