One time this Texan . . .

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Way back in the day I was happy to be a temporary Texan. San Antonio used to be a pretty good place to live, and I've also enjoyed some trips to Austin and Dallas. But I couldn't imagine living up here North Texas or Panhandle. But we did pass several wind farms. We had brought haz-mat suits to wear while we drove past them so as to not catch Trump's cancer. Several places the highway was partially blocked by dead birds, and in all the huge pasture areas there were dead cows just stacked up. And the fields around the windmills were all nicely green with new wheat, soybeans, and corn, but I'm sure anything grown under a windmill would be toxic.

I think I've read that Texas, ironically, is one of the top states for wind energy, maybe #1.

It was the cumulative farts of those mounds of dead cows that kick started those windmills; they should be recognized for the effort

Could be. Here or Kansas. But when you go by them, you can see how truly stupid Trump's remarks were. F'rinstance, he said property values would drop - well, maybe, if they put them in a surburban neighborhood, just as they would with the installation of a cell tower by your house. But - (assume Sam Kinnison scream here) They don't build them in neighborhoods - they build them in the wide open middle of nowhere! And he continues that if the wind didn't blow, you couldn't watch TV (assume Sam again) They don't build them where the wind doesn't blow! Across the plains of Texas and Kansas, the wind ALWAYS blows, idiot. And the windmills don't interfere at all with other use of the land for cows or growing stuff.

Funny comments like:
The District Attorney complained that she was a flight risk so the judge ordered her to surrender her walker.

No, but that is one weird story - even for Texas.

You might think by looking at the guy she killed that it might be justified if he usually dresses like that, but 5 shots front and back with a 20 gauge might indicate there's something other than wifely irritation. And then she claimed to have accidentally shot herself so she couldn't make her appointment with the polygraph and they never re-scheduled. And the daughter supposedly shot herself.

C'mon, put your reply in a Spoiler box so others can play.

Yes, very strange. Comment:
That's some top notch police work. Only took 35 years to figure out the wife did it?
But hey, it's Texas.

My first thought was she had become another victim of failed prohibition of some kind. Nice lady.

It's a rough week for Texans.

"Missing Texas man believed to have been eaten by his dogs, officials say
"We will never know if the dogs killed Mr. Mack or consumed him after he died from a medical condition," the Johnson County sheriff told reporters.

Guthrie, Oklahoma

radioactive uranium
"huge" timber rattlesnake
stolen car
open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe whiskey
They were initially stopped after police noticed their vehicle’s licence plate had expired
That sucks to steal a car with expired tags. What's the world coming to when you can't rely on your victim to be more responsible?
Mr Jennings was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor, operating a vehicle with a suspended license, and failure to carry a security verification form, ABC reported.

Ms Rivera, 30, was charged with possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.

Mr Jennings had a valid lifetime hunting and fishing license so possession of the rattlesnake was legal.

The pair were not charged in connection with the uranium as officers are still looking into a potential motive.

:shock: You and I must be on a very similar wavelength; I posted this on the "can't make this stuff up" thread and also posted about Acosta on the "fired/quit" thread about the same time as you posted it in the war on women one. I am getting off here for a while so that we don't have a cosmic cataclysmic collusion or something like it.

This couple of doofuses probably put those plates on the car after they stole it so they wouldn't get noticed. :lol:

Yeah, I was going :shock: reading that, as I did not recall writing it. In any case, if I were going to steal a car, I would first remove the tags and search for another car of the same type to get tags from. Hint; you don't want to fail to get some kind of tag, as this was how Tim McVeigh got caught.

No matter, it's just that your timing was so perfect - putting an invalid "tag" on my "car". :lol:
