Forcing young girls to watch porn is child abuse---not sex education

By: Paul Lyle | Blog: Closing Argument

Do you think parents ought to have the legal right in Texas to teach their kids about sex?  If so, then who do you think should have the right to police or monitor what, exactly, a parent should be allowed to teach?  Should the Texas Education Agency or the local school district have any say-so about the sex curriculum a parent can teach a child or how the material is presented?  What about the local District Attorn

Does Barack Obama Hate the United States of America?

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

The question needs to be asked.  How does Barack Obama feel about the United States of America?  Does Obama love her or hate her?  Has anyone heard anything from Barack Obama that could lead us to believe he loves the nation he was elected to lead? Barack Obama seeks to disarm and militarily weaken our nation. Barack Obama apologizes for the exceptionalism, bravery, and generosity of our nation’s citizens. Barack Obama apologizes for the sacrifices our military and our people have made to regain and preserve the freedom of others. Barack Obama attacks and demeans the necessary acti

We Americans Are Still Conservative

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

I remain firmly convinced that We the People, the citizens of the United States of America, are solid Conservatives. Our fellow citizens were seduced by the forbidden fruit of Socialism in the General Election of 2008.  They were promised free goods and services they would not have to work to earn. The deadly attraction to Obama was sweetened with promised satisfaction for the voter’s greed and envy – those who worked hard and prospered would be punished with massive taxes and their wealth would be taken from them.  Such is the deadly attraction of Socialist Evil. People have started

Leach gets back to winning and back in good spirits

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

There was no need to diss the players after this one, let alone their girlfriends. Instead, Mike Leach was mostly complimentary after a fourth-quarter surge sent Texas Tech to a 42-21 win over Kansas on Saturday. And the Red Raiders' head coach was back to his fun-loving, rambling self. Leach was comfortable and congenial as he addressed Tech's performance, and even more so when discussing off-the-field matters. Like when he was told his "fat little girlfriends" comment was highlighted by late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "What did he say?" Leach asked.

Tech defense all but seals victory

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech has scored its third touchdown in the span of less than four minutes, turning a 21-14 deficit into a 35-21 lead. The Red Raiders' defense, which has harrassed Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing all day, was responsible for the last two scores.

Batch does it again

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Baron Batch has come alive, and so have the Red Raiders. He just scored on 17-yard, third-down run with 8:49 remaining, giving Texas Tech a 28-21 lead. Batch has all but 7 of his 95 rushing yards in the second half, and he's scored three times - including twice in the last two-plus minutes.

Raiders get ball back in KU territory

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Three plays from scrimmage after Texas Tech tied the game, the Red Raiders got the ball back. Tech cornerback LaRon Moore forced a fumble by Kerry Meier after a short reception, and Franklin Mitchem pounced on the ball at the Kansas 23-yard line. There's nine minutes left in a tie game, and the Red Raiders have a great chance to take their first lead of the second half.

Tech ties it behind Batch

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

At the end of my previous post, I said Taylor Potts would need to provide a spark for Texas Tech. But Baron Batch took the reins on a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive that tied the game at 21 early in the fourth quarter. The junior running back from Midland kickstarted the drive with a 44-yard run into Kansas territory, and after an offensive pass interference penalty took the Red Raiders from the 5-yard line to the 20, Batch ripped off a 19-yard run down to the 1. He then punched it in on fourth down.
