Wanderlost commented on Trump supporters aren’t racists

Actually, Mr. Sohan, you have that saying completely backwards. The earliest documented evidence of the saying is from French jurist and academic Anselme Polycarpe Batbie. A rough translation is:

“He who is not a républicain at twenty compels one to doubt the generosity of his hea…

No, ma'am. Political correctness is about silencing anyone who does not toe the progressive (Socialist) line. There is nothing kind or civil about it. Just look at the invective thrown at anyone who does not pander to whatever "victim" group is shrieking the loudest that particular day, o…

Wanderlost commented on Do Just One Thing

The ivy also destroys your siding, brick, stone, mortar, claws its way into your windows, destroying the frames, and stops other plants from growing nearby.

Can't speak to the transportation, but from the proposed location to FM 1863/Alyssa Ave is a mile. That's where the restaurants and shopping begin, and there is a lot of it and more being built.

bertelsen, your last sentence has been thoroughly debunked. Kavanaugh wrote no such thing. The original report was from someone who could not read legalese and got it completely wrong.

That said, what actual Kavanaugh writings frighten you so much?

Wanderlost

Appreciate that. I do much prefer to read the H-Z over any other paper, whether on line or on paper. I read it for the local stuff, could care less what AP or The Texas Tribune has to say. Locals are so very much more interesting.
