Kinky for Governor

I was on SETPOLITICS today, it is a democrat-dominated site, but I saw this link of 10 reasons that Republicans need to vote for Kinky. Maybe we should have talked to him when we were in Gruene. We did take a picture of his car. Maybe I need to investigate the canidates a little more, either way the list is cute, it is actually hosted on a blog; If you want to check it out, click here: Kinky is Awesome.

The Rocket!!! :)

Done deal: Rocket returns to Astros
Clemens set for June 22 return to Houston rotation

YIPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! And they play the Twins first, We might have to take that game in.
Right-hander Roger Clemens has signed with the Houston Astros, returning to the hometown club for whom he has pitched the past two seasons. Clemens, who will turn 44 in August, has a 344-172 record and seven Cy Young awards.

Ok, so you all read my post on the Wrestling Stuff, and now I feel compeled to report my fight viewing of the UFC. Saturday night we were at the local Buffalo Wild Wings to take in the UFC fight on Pay-Per-View. Let me first say, I am glad my money went to beer and chicken instead of the ppv and ufc folks. I don't think I get this sport. I have heard all the hype about it the last couple of years, and thought I might actually be missing out. I had heard that it was awesome fighting and that they just beat the crap out of each other, and that it ROCKED! But, really is like High School wrestling gone bad, and all you need to know how to do is: hop and avoid the head-lock-choke-hold. Cute guys, Crappy entertainment! (Except for one cool move by the deigo guy, he used his legs to compelety take a guy down, that was pretty cool.) I was atleast entertained by the Astros and their first 17 innings of play, until

Eric Munson couldn't handle a throw from center fielder Willy Taveras that would have nailed Jason Bay at the plate, and the Astros lost their fifth straight in what was the longest game played in the history of PNC Park.

Well, I got to admire the Astros pitching staff warming up to play the Texas Rangers this weekend, I saw Wheeler, Lidge, Springer, and looky here QUALLS, WHO IS WAVING AT ME, ME, ME. Actually, Springer was helping Qualls since he couldn't play Thanks to his little mishap with Barry Bonds :). I got a lot of great pictures, but I had to pick the one where he waved at me, me, me...Actually he like looked at me and waved the ball back and forth and posed. We lost 5-0, but My nephew got to see his first Pro Baseball game and he was cheering for the Rangers, sooooo....At least we are still in line to win the silver boot.


Now, why would these cute little flamingos fraternize with some crazy nasty chickens. :) Poor Birdies :(

GOOD 'OL Teddy...

Ray just sent me another email and in it was this quote from good 'ol Teddy. I have seen this before and thought you might enjoy.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here
in good faith, becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall
be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to
discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or
origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an
American, and nothing but an American…

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an
American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room
for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language
here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole
loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt,


Ok, so yesterday, I said I would go along with the boycott of the Mexican places in town this month, but then I thought, HOLD ON TO YOUR SOMBRERO, IT IS CINCO DE MAYO THIS WEEKEND!!!! I wanted to Clarify that I still the love the Mexican culture, I love The food, the music, if I am not in my car and AM enjoying a cool beverage. I love their colors and their people. I just don't agree with them living here illegally, come on over, just be an AMERICAN!!! My Great-Grandparents came over on a ship from POLAND and entered thru Ellis Island, and we are now on a fourth generation of happy, blessed Americans. I think we can all be successful here, we just need to follow the great constitution that our fore-fathers penned years ago. So, I will boycott if you guys want me too, if it will help get the point across, I just don't want to hurt the business owners that did it the right way AND I am NOT, I repeat NOT giving up CORONA on Friday!!!!! I might even NOT, I repeat NOT give up Tequila as well. :) Enjoy yourselves, qué lo paséis bien!

I received this message from my friend today, and I agree because I tried to eat at Elana's yesterday and it was closed due to boycott, and then I had to wait in traffic, as the police stopped us for a people parade of these boycotters, with their american flags, I don't get it:

Enjoy Thoughts from RAY:

Okay, that's it!!

I'm calling for a boycott of all Mexican restaurants, or Mexican-anything,
on Mother's Day! Better yet, we should boycott all things Mexican for the
entire month of May, starting now.

This illegal immigrant stuff is really starting to get on my nerves. And
now they're protesting against us!!

Personally, I don't think I need anything Mexican--I love the food, and I
guess we're getting the benefit of their cheap labor to harvest our
produce, but from a personal standpoint that's all it really means to me.
And so I think it is for most "everyday" people, so this should be easy.
I'm not talking about Taco Bell, Papasita's, Rio Rita's, Poblano Grill,
etc. Those are not Mexican-owned restaurants. Chula Vista, Ninfa's,
Acapulco, Guadalajara, Carmela's, Crazy Jose's, Ocito's, Elena's, and 3
Amigos are just some of the Mexican-owned restaurants in Beaumont, and
there are a whole lot more in Port Arthur.

If you could get 5 people you know not to go to Mexican-owned restaurants
for the month of May and they got 5 people, and so on, that would translate
into a pretty powerful message to our local Mexican brothers and sisters.

Too bad we "Gringos" can't stick together on a national scale and really
drive this thing home.

That's just what I think.
