About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

Ancient Aliens - A Mexican ufologist claims to show 2 alien corpses to Mexico's Congress

MEXICO CITY — Mexico's Congress heard testimony from experts who study extraterrestrials on Tuesday.

And the hearing started with a huge surprise.

Jaime Maussan, a self-described ufologist, brought two caskets into the congressional chambers. As Maussan spoke, two men uncovered the caskets, to reveal two bodies.

The corpses looked white and like stereotypical depictions of aliens — big head, little body, three fingers. Maussan said they were found in Peru in 2017 and are estimated to be 1,000 years old. One of the bodies had been pregnant, he claimed.


In a USA Today article, apparently there will be a vote in Mexico's congress to declare themselves the first "ET Truther" nation. (Really?) https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2023/09/13/mexico-alien-x-ray-claims/70843076007/

Come on, what a claim to fame: Turn the country into one big Roswell.....

Bexar Co DA will resume prosecuting low level marijuana

Due to Death Star Bill
Joe is progressive, but the state will get rid of DAs who don't prosecute for pot. Low level theft etc.

The Bexar County District Attorney’s Office is backing off its policy against prosecuting low-level drug offenses, just in time to stay on the right side of a new state law that makes it easier to remove local DAs over such policies.

Four years ago, District Attorney Joe Gonzales adopted a "declination policy" for minor drug possession cases. He said the aim was to focus on fighting violent crime and to avoid clogging the court system and the county jail with nonviolent offenders.

Under that policy, the DA's office declined to prosecute marijuana possession cases involving less than 1 ounce, unless the defendant was a danger to the community. The policy similarly required prosecutors to dismiss cases involving possession of other controlled substances if the weight was under 0.25 grams and the suspect did not pose a danger to the public.

The policy led to a steep drop in prosecutions for such offenses. Although some prosecutors and law enforcement officers criticized the policy, Gonzales defended it as a way to make the most effective use of limited resources. https://www.expressnews.com/news/article/gonzales-reconsiders-leniency-pot-arrests-18339106.php?utm_source=marketing&utm_medium=copy-url-link&utm_campaign=article-share&hash=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZXhwcmVzc25ld3MuY29tL25ld3MvYXJ0aWNsZS9nb256YWxlcy1yZWNvbnNpZGVycy1sZW5pZW5jeS1wb3QtYXJyZXN0cy0xODMzOTEwNi5waHA=&time=MTY5MzY3MDE4MzA5Nw==&rid=YWYxMmViMWYtOTEyMi00YjhmLWI1MDgtNWZkMDcwYmE2MDcz&sharecount=MQ==

Texas heat melts off iconic Buc-ee's beaver sign in viral video

Extreme heat, a struggling power grid, hurricanes, inflation and political battles at the state Capitol. Haven't Texans suffered enough this summer?

It turns out no one is immune to the effects of the never-ending heat wave that has plagued the Lone Star State for the past few months, not even our heroes.

A family visiting a Buc-ee’s in the city of Madisonville, about two hours by car from Houston, noticed the face of the company's iconic mascot melting off under the August sun.

Video taken of the logo shows the beaver missing a chunk of its face, leaving the sign's inner materials exposed where the animal's eye, cheeks and part of its snout should have been.

Buc-ee's responds to unofficial 'Buk-ii's' store in Matamoros, MX

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — Buc-ee’s is prepared to take action against an unofficial store named “Buk-ii’s” in Matamoros.

An off-brand version of the popular store is opening as a “super mercado” in Matamoros. A report by KDAF, our sister station in Dallas, stated the store will sell grocery items and international beers.

Buc-ee’s general counsel Jeff Nadalo released a statement to ValleyCentral in reference to the store opening.

“The Buc-ee’s brand represents clean restrooms, freshly prepared food, and great service. Buc-ee’s has invested heavily in innovation across the company to create and maintain these award-winning guest experiences. Accordingly, Buc-ee’s will not stand as an idle spectator while others use without permission the intellectual property that Buc-ee’s has cultivated for decades,” the statement reads.



I think every country in the world should have a Buk iis, then Buc-ees can sue every country in the world. So, stupid.
