Nothing Left, to Say...

Where We Shed Light on the Right, We respect governance by the 2C's, Common Sense and the Constitution, where we never have anything say...We are also the home of the (almost) weekly Rant and Recipe...

Ann Coulter is right. If you must talk to liberals at all, it sure is work. First of all you have to realize that in 99% of all encounters, you would have greater success speaking to a wall. Liberals are inherently unable to give anyone’s ideas any consideration unless they agree completely with their own. This translates into what is known as condescension and patrimony from the likes of the left. Few things in life irritate more thoroughly than to be patronized for one’s views. I mention all of this only because I see that a quick month has passed since my last post. Much of that time has been consumed arguing with lib’ruls in a Constitutional History course and as many of you know, it is exhausting work.

On a brighter note I did manage to spend a week in Texas which is always a good thing. Hanging out with the Texan and eating great barbecue, hitting a high school football game and generally being around the kind of folks that liberals despise, in other words, real Americans. It was good to be back in the Lone Star State even if it was in Houston and it was work related. I did manage to get in a trip to the Alamo and reading Travis’ last letter from the mission still brings a tear to my eye. I apologize to those of you tuning in for weekly football picks but like so many prognosticators, we here at PMT Sportsbetting have been suffering the vagaries of college gridiron action this year. The last two weeks have been handsome and finally we’ve put behind us that four week stretch in the middle where none of us could hit a winner and we couldn’t have found a crook in San Quentin either.

In any event I’m back now and should be posting regularly again, at least once a week. We’ll be putting out some picks this week and look for my beloved Longhorns to lay waste to the Sodbusters in College Station on Friday. Ummm…depending on the spread…

I don’t want to spend too much time on this but one reason the trip to Texas was so enjoyable was the example of pure Americana on display at a high school football game. The Texan picked me up in New Braunfels and we drove some 45 miles to Lockhart for a high school match between the Mighty New Braunfels Unicorns and the Lockhart Lions. Well they made the film “Friday Night Lights” about Texas high school football for a reason. There were several thousand fans in attendance for a drubbing of Lockhart by the Mighty Unicorn squad, led by Senior QB Ryan Perez.

The real beauty of the night though was the people themselves. Not only was the game preceded by the National Anthem, people actually removed their hats and sang along. No one had to be prompted to remove the lid either. Just in case any stray foreign agent had wandered into the stadium, the crowd was led in the Pledge of Allegiance as well. Representatives of both schools JROTC squads were honored and no one from the ACLU complained. The kids were respectful and reserved and the star quarterback was someone a father could be proud of. Sometimes it’s just a good thing to see that in some parts of the country, there are still real American values shamelessly on display. For a week anyway it let’s you forget about the cesspools that try to dictate to the rest of the country how we should live.
