Opportunity to shake up Texas SBoE

Seven of the seats on the Texas SBoE are on the ballot this November, but only three are interesting to those of us who would like to reduce the current number of far-right members on the board.

The three races of interest are:

  • District 7
    David Bradley (incumbent, far-right R) vs Laura Ewing (D)

  • District 8
    Barbara Cargill (incumbent, far-right R) vs Linda Ellis (write-in)

  • District 14
    Gail Lowe (incumbent, far-right R) vs Edra Bogle (D)

To see if you can vote on one of these contests, enter your address at this website.

Help if you can.

McCain is choice of terrorists

McCain has been endorsed by Al Qaeda, according to this article in the New York Times: The Endorsement From Hell.
“From their perspective, a continuation of Bush policies is best for [Al Qaeda] recruiting,” said Professor Joseph Nye, [the former chairman of the National Intelligence Council,] adding that Mr. McCain is far more likely to continue those policies.

As if we needed another reason not to vote for him.
An American president who keeps troops in Iraq indefinitely, fulminates about Islamic terrorism, inclines toward military solutions and antagonizes other nations is an excellent recruiting tool. In contrast, an African-American president with a Muslim grandfather and a penchant for building bridges rather than blowing them up would give Al Qaeda recruiters fits.

It's time to clean house.
