The Three Types of Voters

Now that early voting is over, I have spent enough time at the polls to be able to reflect effectively on the types of people that come to the polls.  Not surprising, I have identified three types.

There are the ones who don't mind talking to you and like a good joke. These are the ones that make it all worthwhile.  They are friendly and to be honest, they are usually there to vote for Katrina Pierson, among others.  I cannot even count how many have told me they want all incumbents out.  Others say they are angry with Part-time Pete because he has forgotten us, screwed around on his wife of 27 years, and doesn't live here. Hells I don't even have to mention those little nuggets as they are fully aware of them. There was even one who said he was voting for Katrina because she was, 'hot'. Hey, whatever works.

Then there are the ones who walk up with very sour faces and they look at you with a blank stare.  I am not exaggerating as I have heard this comment from every volunteer I have had working at the polls. You just know they are not going to vote for Katrina and they confirm it by being rude in their response. You have to wonder why these people are so miserable.  If your candidate is making you that bitter and hostile you might want to consider one that gives you hope.  Just a thought. 

Then there are the ass-hats who walk up, get in your face, call you 'stupid', walk past with a hateful look on their face, or even walk past without looking at you as you merely ask them if they will be voting.  It's as if they would just as soon pull out a machete and slice your face off if they thought they could get away with it without spending life in prison.

These are some of the most miserable people I have ever had to deal with.  I confirm their party affiliation when they say that if Katrina is not a Democrat they aren't voting for her.  Their sourness is confounding; honestly these people should be happy as Mexican jumping beans. They have a liberal in the house and a liberal majority Senate, as well as lapdog House members who are going along with them.  They are getting oodles of assistance from the likes of Pete Sessions, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain so in my honest opinion, these people should be rejoicing. Strangely they are not.  

Yet they are some of the nastiest, bitter people I have ever come across. Again, I am not exaggerating this as several of my volunteers have experienced some of their truly frightening behavior. It's really a shame too because they don't need to be that way.

I believe that the real conservative Republicans are the ones that have hope and are willing to take a chance on someone new because they are sick and tired of the same old cocktail club in Washington DC. Their excitement helps push me to continue fighting for liberty despite the rude, snitty-faced people who don't realize how much the hatred they are harboring is harming them.

My wish for Election Day is that every polling place has thousands of mirrors installed so that people can really see themselves for what they are as they come in to vote.

I would rather be smiling and full of hope.

Pete Sesssions' Million Dollar Sweetheart Deal


Lookie what came across my desk today.  A couple articles about Pete Sessions' mortage scandal.  

Read the article here and another article here!

I forgot about Pete Sessions' sweetheart Countrywide Mortgage deal.  Hey, he wasn't named one of the country's top 10 Most Corrupt Politicians for nothing.

It is no wonder that I am still getting calls for Katrina Pierson signs. People are walking up to me at the polls and telling me they are there to vote for Katrina because they know he doesn't live in Texas.

In fact, any idiot can tell you he is not living in Texas when his smoking hot wife lives in Winter Park, Florida. As John Stossel would say, give me a break.

The entertaining thing is, this is just more fodder to anger his bffs with on Facebook.  Such fun.

Taking Pete Sessions' Place



I found a little something something to set the mood for readers to help ease them into this particular blog post.  So dim your lights a little and just let the music wash over you.  You will notice many parts of the song that apply to this post, but more particularly the words that reverberate, "When I wake up, I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place." 

I find so much about this song fits the Congressional District 32 political scene at the moment. I say this because I spent the better part of yesterday doing some research for this post, and frankly, I felt as if I should take a shower after I read all the smears being tossed at Katrina Pierson by Pete Sessions' campaign manager Kim Locus and her social networking playmates.

Make no mistake, this ugliness is ultimately owned by Pete Sessions as he sits idly by and allows the juvenile behavior of his employees and supporters. His silence on the character assassination tacitly endorses this activity.  From Pete's mouth to Kim's fingers, he is her boss and is completely responsible for what comes out of his office.

Finish the song and let your mind drift back to reality. I'll wait for you.

Though Kim Locus seems to believe she is sending out some uber-spiffy cryptic tweets, her activity on Twitter actually seems a tad psychotic in nature #onlymeandmybffsgetthis.  In the end, Locus is only tweeting to 194 followers and her hashtag use is completely ineffective, so I am overall dismissive of her childish behavior, because #nobodyisreading. However the point of this post is that her true moral ambiguity comes out and it is pretty shocking for someone who claims to be a good Christian.

Here are a few samples of her pure genius:



Look at her peculiar posts about my blog, which she doesn't realize helps to SEO it further up the Google search engine as people start looking for it #beflooded. Seems she is not all that Internet savvy.  Surely I must be close to her in age but compared to her, I am one bad-ass chick when it comes to social networking.

Notice Kim Locus RTs (retweets for you those Twitterless peeps) and her own posts.  Some RT ditties are from her Twitter friend known as 'Not Katrina Pierson'. Cute, ain't it?



Further investigation of Not Katrina Pierson, whom Kim Locus obviously knows  personally,
has a whopping 20 followers and listed among them is none other than her nasty pal Elizabeth Bingham.  Elizabeth is an outreach chair for the Dallas County Republican Party.

There is also the usual bunch of spammers who follow anything in order to get follow backs on Twitter.  However the individual who owns this Twitter account opened it up on February 4th right after I started blogging about the Pete Sessions whisper campaign.



In fact, Kim Locus publicly acknowledges to the world via Twitter that she has embarked on a #whisper campaign, and she even finds it cute.

 

Then the Sessions campaign really started to spread their whispers about Katrina's shoplifting arrest from when she was young, and Locus and her pals thought it would be oh so Christian-like to tweet these:



I have always found that when you have to resort to petty attacks, you have lost your argument. Yet this childishness doesn't stop there. Pete Sessions' campaign manager and supporters went on to make even more asinine tweets:






Boy, they sure are special in their own little way, aren't they?












I'm so glad the Sessions supporters think that everyone laid off and receiving unemployment is on the 'dole'.  Nothing like bitch slapping your constituents around, but then again maybe this is a reminder that the only supporters Pete Sessions cares about are those who are so wealthy they don't need to go on unemployment should they lose a job.  Good to know.

Right about now it may also be interesting to note  that Kim Locus finds it so funny that there are accusations that Pete Sessions has hardly ever been spotted at the apartment he listed when he filed to run:


 This was her response to an email I sent out to those in my email list. Obviously chess was not her strong suit.

Then there is this Fred guy who claims Pete Sessions spoon feeds himself from his babbling brook of riparian bloggage. Note the high-fives over libelous trash talk:











I don't believe I need to point out that some of these comments border on libel.  So tell me exactly how it is that the Tea Party conservatives are supposed to be the hateful ones? When you read between the lines of this nonsense, do you see an underlying theme here?  I don't even have to highlight it because it's not so difficult to connect those dots when you read these posts one after another.  And this nonsense is from someone who claims Pete Sessions is a 'good friend'.


At this point I am fairly certain my readers are about to beg me to make it stop. Sadly, I am unable to, however you are.  By casting your vote with thousands of others who are voting for Katrina Pierson because they too are infuriated at this behavior.

Most important to know as you head to the polls is what Pete Sessions and his campaign manager think of you:



They think you are stupid, idiot, liars.  So there you have it in their own words.

All of these posts put a glaring spotlight on the real issue.  Pete Sessions is scared and with good reason.  One day he might wake up and find that someone else took his place.

Sessions Town-Homies

I realize some people are really bad at writing, and some people are really bad at math.  But when you are having real issues with something as basic  as a calendar, it may be time to question your motives.

Kim Locus, the Campaign Manager for Pete Sessions sent out an email trying to debunk the epic viralocity of Where is Pete Sessions?  A quick Google search of, "Where is Pete" automatically brings up a laundry list of blog articles wondering the same thing.

The letter sent out by Ms. Locus claims Pete Sessions moved January 14th but interestingly enough, Sessions was on TV on January 19th claiming he lived in his efficiency apartment.

To be honest, methinks the woman doth protest too much.

Hairspray - The Making of a Wylie Phenomena




I humbly ask for my readers to allow me this indulgence. Someone in Wylie that I think is pretty special has asked me to put up a blog post about the making of a Wylie phenomena - Hairspray the Musical.

My son has been involved with the Wylie High School Theater for several years.  I believe there was a pivotal moment at the end of the last school year when he was recognized for all of his hard work which prompted him to take a keen interest in the next year's musical, Hairspray.


He began working on the design last summer on his own time, and his absolutely fabulous teachers took time out of their summer and met with him about some concepts.  They were an integral part in guiding my son's efforts.


It started with him taking over my art studio with drawings, and those drawings culminated into models.




Next came the large scale drawings and his technical theater teacher was instrumental in teaching him this art as well as how to use a CAD program.

Soon the building started and many people put their heart and soul into this, including endless hours spent with his teacher whom he considers to be a second father and great friend to him.
 
 
 


And then light design came.












Of course, the students had a little fun along the way...

He even fit in the Theater Convention held in Dallas this year. Again his teachers provided hours of personal time preparing my son for portfolio reviews with colleges.

Then the tough part started and many, many volunteers, parents, and students, along with the teachers used their great talents to bring the set together. And work began on the costumes which were super authentic looking! We were blessed with so much talent!







 Even the Superintendent Dr. David Vinson came to help paint with his children and some of the theater students.






When the set was complete, all the behind the scenes stuff began. Students rehearsed tirelessly, parents volunteered to feed them after school for two weeks, and the teachers put in an incredible amount of hours.

Then opening night came and the students started the evening in prayer, because that's how we roll in Wylie, Texas. AMEN!
 



 










 









And the people came!



The show sold out two nights in a row!


The rest, as they say, was history...

Even some students from Wylie East High School came out to support Wylie High School.

















Then as all good things must come to an end.  This incredible group of students celebrated their victory!

The euphoria of Hairspray was amazing and it can be witnessed in this final video.
