Lubbock County Democratic Chair Kenny Ketner And Amarillo Blogger Ted McLaughlin Are Two Great Texans—The United Nations Will Not Be Taking Over Texas Despite Claims To The Contrary

Good work by friend and Lubbock County Democratic Party Chair Kenny Ketner (left) who was referenced in the N.Y. Times today about the Lubbock elected official who says if Mr. Obama is reelected that the United Nations might take over and that troops might need to be raised to fight the U.N. back to New York City.

Here is the Times article about Lubbock official Tom Head. 

Kenny is seen here with top Texas blogger Ted McLaughlin of Amarillo. Ted writes the great blog  Jobsanger.

I took this picture in Houston during the Texas Democratic convention this past June.

There are so many hopeful people in our world who give their time to make stuff better.

Panhandle Truth Squad Blog Now Five Years Old


The great Amarillo blog Panhandle Truth Squad is now five years old.

Please click here to read Panhandle Truth Squad.

I’ve not met the guys from Panhandle Truth Squad in person as of yet. And in many ways that’s just as well because I wager they are assholes. I know at the least that I’m a jerk and I just can’t imagine that such a meeting would go well.

Still—Someday I’ll be in Amarillo or PST will visit Houston, and we will meet.  

Panhandle Truth Squad has had more than 115,000 vistors since it began posting. While that’s nothing compared the traffic here at Texas Liberal, it is a number greater than the population of the island nation of Kiribati. Kiribati has roughly 105,000 people.   

Above is a picture of Kiribati. I’d run a picture of Amarillo, Texas, but Amarillo looks just the same as what you see above.

 Here is information about visiting Kiribati.

At five years, PST has existed longer than the life expectancy of the octopus. The octopus is a very intelligent creature, but sadly it only lives for five years at most.

Why Panhandle Truth Squad gets more time on this Earth than the octopus is not clear to me. 

Below is an octopus moving from one tidal pool to another during low tide.
