So George P. Bush wins election as land commissioner in Texas. Is this just a stepping stone to his political career? Or, is there something more to this. I remember Michael Bednarik stating that the only state you can get alloidal title to the land is in Texas. Just a thought I had. I guess time will tell.
Well worth the read - does Charles Jordan really have big
investments in private prisons? Yuck.
From Ray Jasper's letter:
"Empathy breeds proper judgement. Sympathy breeds sorrow. Contempt breeds arrogance. Neither are proper judgements because they're based on emotions. That's why two people can look at the same situation and have totally different views. We all feel differently about a lot of things. Empathy gives you an inside view. It doesn't say 'If that was me...', empathy says, 'That is me.'
Is it the voting machines, or did Texans like those insulting "I fight Obama everyday" radio spots? Representative Lamar Smith, TX 21, changed the name and ran the same ad.
How can results be called in an hour? Have you ever tried to organize people to coordinate something technical? American elections look like a sham. "Just click this button, Bob, and you'll win the election. Oh, a recount? No, the other button."

I rarely watch youtube advertisements. Usually I click "skip ad" as soon as it pops up. However, this time was an exception.
The words on the screen spoke to me, "Why only pay celebrities or athletes? Why not give the money to the poor?"
I've often wondered the same thing, so I continued to watch as the narrators told the story of Patsy Skinner, a Georgia woman who has opened her doors and her wallet, to help feed the disadvantaged in her community.
It's a very touching an inspirational story that I hope you will take the time to watch.
