Rusty Dowling, the coach who led those teams to those titles returns for yet another honor. On Friday, the athletic facility where his teams lifted weights and studied film en route to those state titles will bare his name.

Sverige, how do all these disabled, old , sick, and poor people that you are soo worried about get their government giveaways without an ID?3 days ago
You have to show ID to get smokes and booze, you dolt! What about an ID to get government handouts? Are you arguing that the government is prejudiced against the very poor people it's trying to help?? See how screwed up your logic gets when you try to justify liberalism??!!
Plus people can get free ID's from the state of Texas! 6 days ago
Part of the voter ID law was that people could get free ID's. But just ignore that, don't let facts get in the way of your sound bite.
They won't spend the money on an ID, that is your contention? How do they get their government handouts without ID? How do they buy booze or smokes without ID? How do they get an apartment, even in government housing you must provide a government ID.
Poll tax, my rear end. It makes it harder for democrats to cheat. That's what's really at issue here!!!!!!!6 days ago
There is already a federal law. Remember when Arizona tried to make a state law that mirrored the federal law on immigration? Remember how nuts you people went? Remember how the current administration took the state to court? Remember how you cried that there was already a federal law? Well goose, meet gander. I refer you the case of pot v. kettle. Hypocrisy much?!6 days ago
Your argument is that it's discriminatory to enforce federal law? Being in the country illegally is, ....well,..illegal. That's like saying it's discriminatory to shut down a brothel or illegal gaming room. Renting a house to an illegal immigrant is no different than leasing an acre of land to a pot grower. The feds will actually sieze all of your land if you do that!! Yet you would not shout discrimination if the city council made a resolution not to lease acreage to pot growers. What is the difference?
It would be sooo sweet if your neighbor rented their house to a "family" of about 20 illegal immigrants. Ah, to dream. Talk about facing consequences!!!6 days ago
I could do all of your points but I'm too tired. I gotta go to work in the morning, millions of Democrat freeloaders need my money.1 week ago
Number 1- see how you phrase that in bumper sticker language? "Woman choose what to do with their body". Who can be against that? But it's more than that isn't it? Your "right to choice" is really about killing a human. Let me be clear, I'm not talking about rape, incest, or health of the mother. I'm talking about using the death of a human as a form of birth control. You have argued that bringing a baby into a world when that child would be poor, or be a burden, or not be wanted would not be fair to the child so abortion is the answer. Ok, let's take that to it's logical next step. You could use the same argument to kill old people, or sick people, or mentally I'll people. You could even use that argument to kill young ladies that won't stop pumping out kids that are a burden to the state. See how your own justification for abortion could lead to killing young women!!??? See how it could be used to kill you? But, but, but you're all for freedom, how could this be??!!! Did you know that Hitler, a socialist, used your argument to kill gays and the mentally ill? He framed it in compassion at first, that's how he got the populace to go or it. Then, like all socialistic state leaders, he took it to it's inevitable end.
So you see how your own logic and arguments for policies that, on the surface, seem like freedom can end up doing you in? See you put too much faith in the state. You fall for the hook, the sound bite. It hits a chord with you, women's freedom. So anyone that is against the sound bite "pro choice", must hate women. You repeat what you've heard that if abortion is illegal women will resort to unsafe back alley abortions. Some women will, but the vast majority won't. Just like before when abortions were illegal. The vast majority will have the baby, or practice safe sex or abstinence. That's what used to happen. So the back alley argument is fear mongering at best.

Classic response! Don't try to refute/debate anything, (because you can't) just try to ridicule. Typical liberal response to facts. I think deep down you know that liberalism/progressivism/socialism is and has always been a failure wherever it has been tried. Though you try to frame every issue as some platitude about segregation, empowerment, equality, etc. you actually have no idea about the finer points of any issue. It is like you get your entire philosophy from a bumper sticker. Or possibly a sound bite from comedy central. You are a low information voter. You have no idea of the interplay of economics, civil/criminal law, the constitution, and history that go into making informed decisions about foreign or domestic policy. I wouldn't even know where to start to try to get you up to speed on economics or finance. You are too ignorant of history and basic human nature to even see that the very utopian fantasy you wish to foist upon the rest of us will, in time, enslave you. You prattle on about freedom and equality yet advocate for policies that will take our freedom and make us all equally oppressed. The sad part is that you try to mask your ignorance with an air of elitism.1 week ago
Please, HISD is run by liberals. Bellaire (hoity toity) and the others turn out good kids because of parental involvement. There are good kids coming out of all schools because of parental involvement. That still does not change the fact that HISD is corrupt and squanders(steals) money. It's not the hoity toity people of Bellaire that are making Yates wear old uniforms!!!! It's the administrators of HISD! And you can bet your bottom dollar that the administrators of HISD are as liberal as you ever dreamed of being!!!
You keep voting in liberals that do nothing but squander money in search of some utopian ideal that never materializes because it can't!!!! Then you turn around and blame everyone else for liberal good intentions that fail!!!! You have been doing this for 60 years! Look at your liberal dream worlds, Detroit, Washington DC( you liberals voted in a convicted crack head!!!!), and Chicago. All of them are crime ridden crap holes! Hasn't been a republican mayor in Detroit in 60 years, but it's still republicans fault for Detroits woes!! You people are amazing!! Oregon and Washinton used to be great till all the fruits and nuts from California moved in and started voting in liberals!! You people are like locusts, you move in and destroy everything. Then you have the gall to blame everyone but yourselves for the mess you create! Grow up! You liberals disgust me.
You people are real generous with other people's money, but quite frugal with yours. Studies have shown that conservatives give more to charity than liberals. But I'm the bad guy. I try to teach people to fish so they can control their own destiny. You give them fish( that I provide) so that you can control their lives, make them slaves to your ideals. Then turn around and blame me for not giving enough fish!!!! 1 week ago
