Gene Locke Has Campaign Signs In Illegal Places & Consorts With Gay Bashers

Houston Mayoral candidate Gene Locke puts his campaign signs everywhere.

Above are some that have popped up like mushrooms.

( Here is a link to a U. of Illinois horticulturist writing about how the limit the spread of mushrooms on your lawn. Gene Locke could stop of the spread of his signs by simply being a good citizen of our community.)

The signs in the picture may well be legally-placed. However ,the Locke campaign has signs on highway overpasses all over the city.

I saw such signs last week on 45 South headed to Galveston.

I saw them again today on 45 North headed to the airport.

I wish I had a picture of the highway signs, but it did not seem a good idea to take pictures while driving on the highway.

Though if you have been on our highways in Houston, maybe you have seen these signs.

Such signs are illegal and will cost taxpayer dollars to remove.

It is not just that Mr. Locke has campaign signs where they should not be, it is also that he consorts with gay bashers.

My fellow Houston blogger, David Ortez, found that anti-gay activist Dave Wilson has given $2000 to the Locke campaign.

Mr. Locke very much wants the support of local gay-bashers.

Is there anything decent and hopeful about the Locke campaign?

If there is, Mr. Locke has kept it well-hidden.

If only he would keep his campaign signs well-hidden.

I Kept Waiting For Debate On CNN—Got Larry King & Valerie Bertinelli Instead

I was pretty sure there was a debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama this evening.

I got home from work around 7:30 and put on CNN.

No debate was on.

The wife was late because she had a work-related event to attend.

(Yeah–Another office toga party for the wife.) 

I was all by myself.

I made a bowl of cream of mushroom soup for dinner.

(Here is link to American Mushroom Institute)

I sat at the computer pissing away more of my life working on this blog.

The computer and the TV are in separate rooms.

I figured the debate would come on at 8.

Instead, Larry King came on with an interview of Valerie Bertinelli.

I thought to myself—“Is the debate on some other channel? Do I have to get up and flip channels?”

I did get up–But only to get a Hostess Cupcake I had bought on a 59 cent special offer. I think I had to buy a 140 ounce slushy to get such a good deal on the cupcakes.

I was still convinced a debate was on tonight.

I thought about how many debates have already been held and how I did not really need to see another one.

I picked up a book and ate my cupcake.

The debate was on MSNBC as it turned out.

As much as you may care about politics, can you really watch all this crap day-after-day? I can’t.

It’s a campaign/entertainment industry. 

Did you know the spray from waves can make a rainbow?
