New Blood Needed

Longtime Readers may remember that I held our former House Rep, the late Sam Johnson (PBUH) in the highest regard, and while I understood why he retired (age, Vietnam POW, etc), I was sad that he did, sadder still when he passed away last year.

He was replaced by a slightly oily little worm whom I’d actually met prior to his election as Mr. Sam’s replacement — but as he was the best of a rather poor bunch, I voted for him.

How times have changed.  Today is primary day, and Van Taylor is being challenged by several Republicans in the Third District.

Just so we’re all clear as to why Taylor’s being challenged, this slimy little RINO voted in favor of the disgusting Jan 6 House Commission (one of two Texas reps, and one of twenty-three Reps nationwide to do so).   He’s proven himself to be a Never-Trumper, and I’m not going to vote for him.  (He’s also been caught bonking some chick in Washington, but I don’t care as much about that as the other stuff.)

Looking over the candidates, former judge and arch-conservative Keith Self seems to have the right stuff:

Infantry Platoon Leader, Special Forces Detachment Commander, Company Commander, as the Executive Officer to a Major General in Egypt, responsible for managing $2 Billion in security assistance.  In addition, Keith served in Joint Staff assignments in US European Command and later in NATO Military Headquarters in Belgium.
During his career, Keith received the Master Parachutist Badge, Ranger Tab, Special Forces Tab, and held some of the highest level of security clearances. He retired with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Upon retiring from the U.S. Army after 25 years of service, Keith ran for and was elected County Judge in Collin County. In that position, Keith stood up for us when others wouldn’t—cutting taxes 25%, defending private property rights, and solving the pension crisis.

See you at the polls today, Judge.


  1. I hope Taylor comes in dead last. Good luck to Self. he sounds like a great choice.

    Behind enemy lines up north we have commies from the Dunce cult and slightly more moderates from what passes as the GOP up here.


  2. I’m increasingly concerned about the Right’s need to elect military vets to congress. IMO the LAST thing we need are more folks who have experience as a hammer and so see too many things as a nail. Is it good to have a realistic view of the world in order to make serious decisions? Yes. But should those who have spent their adult lifetimes in training for shooting wars be the ones making those decisions? Probably not.
    I understand the “those least-interested in war are those who have fought,” but no longer believe it. To much time on this earth, too many stupid wars, too much combat-without-war (ie since 1945), too many who see force as the only solution to the projection of force by others. Ya know what? Non-intervention might not get warriors promotions or new toys, but it’ll save a helluva lotta lives and dollars. Ukraine, for example, is Ukriane’s problem, regardless of how many people demand we get involved. I’ts not a democracy, it’s not an ally. It’s an uber-corrupt country that bought Hunter Biden as protection against a great power next door.

    1. I’m not arguing the point with you, but I should point out that the incumbent weasel is ex-USMC, and other than the Judge, the other candidates are an ex-cop, an “educator” (part of the education establishment) and the last someone with no political experience whatsoever. All three seem good people, but on this occasion, I’m going with the judge/LTC.

      1. not to digress too much, but I’m sick and tired of hearing that teaching is a noble profession. The last thirty years these “educators” have continued to turn out students who know less and and can do fewer things than previous generations. They’ve destroyed what was once a respectable occupation.
