The Missiles of Yom Kippur

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

It was certainly no accident that on Yom Kippur Iran tested two of its medium range missiles that were both capable of hitting Israel.  Fueled by the embarrassing weakness President Obama has demonstrated in national security and World affairs, Iran has significantly escalated its defiance of the United States and Israel. After President Obama’s submissive address at the United Nations, Obama went on to further embarrass the United States and more deeply endanger Western Civilization at the G-20 Summit.  Our British and French Allies tried valiantly to bolster Allied courage by verbally con

Big 12 notes: QB injury updates, A&M's explosive offense and a better Batch

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Most of the football-related news coming out of Texas Tech these days is not of the good variety. The Red Raiders suffered their second straight loss in Houston on Saturday night, and since then, all-American Brandon Carter has been indefinitely suspended and Mike Leach has declared war on Twitter. What has perhaps been lost in the shuffle is the resurgence of Tech's running game, and especially Baron Batch.

This and That

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

Life gets away from me sometimes, so it's time to play catch-up on a number of topics. First, the Lubbock County Democratic Party and Texas Democratic Women of the South Plains are hosting the Democratic Booth at the South Plains Fair! The fair runs through October 3rd, and the booth is up and running in the Merchants' Building (near the South entrance on Broadway) whenever the Fair is open. I just got home from my volunteer shift there, and it was great.

Where On Your Body Not To Stick a Cigar and Blame the Mormons For It

By: Paul Lyle | Blog: Closing Argument

At first, the ER attendant was nice enough not to ask a lot of questions. But she had to see it to believe it (and to treat it), so I pulled down my pants without any hesitation, though I did so carefully.  She winced when she saw it---the five-inch long cigar-shaped burn. It happened on my patio while I was smoking a cigar.  Actually, I wasn't really smoking because, like Clinton, I didn't inhale.

This loss will sting for a while

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech had the lead for most of the game, and a great chance to knock off a ranked team on the road. But for the second week in a row, the Red Raiders couldn't close it out. And now they're 2-2, equaling the number of the losses they had all of last year. Tech, trying to bounce back from a hard-fought loss at No. 2 Texas last week, had Houston on the ropes at Robertson Stadium on Saturday night.

Can Tech bounce back, or will Coogs keep cruising?

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech gets a primetime showcase for the second straight week. The Red Raiders played well but came up short in last week's Big 12 opener against second-ranked Texas, and with another national TV audience tuned in, they'll get another road test against a ranked team on Saturday night. This time it's the No. 17 Houston Cougars, who have had two weeks to bask in the glory of a 45-35 win over then-No. 5 Oklahoma State in Stillwater. The Tech-UH showdown should be a doozy, but there's plenty of other exciting matchups on tap.

Friday Night Fights: The Old Reliable Groin Shot!

By: scottslemmons | Blog: Hero Sandwich

I've been having some trouble finding good panels to use for the latest Friday Night Fights series. See, SpaceBooger has decreed that every fight has to include a good kick -- literally, a kick, or a stomp, or some other attack with the feet. And I'm having trouble finding good ones.
