Texans not toxic; OK to kill humans

“Texas Republicans are Toxic for the RNC”

Between the Lines

The Dems were reacting to the announcement that the 2016 Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland, Ohio. They concluded that the reason for choosing Cleveland over Dallas was because of the strong conservative leanings in the Red State of Texas.

Their choice, I would venture to say, is not because they are afraid of Texans. They want to woo new voters from another area of the country. Although I would rather see them come to Texas, I don’t pretend to know what’s in their hearts and minds. I do know that, for the most part, the strategy of the Republican National Committee has not been working for them.

“Facebook Bans Hunting Pictures -- But Allows a Page Calling for the Murder of a Girl“

Between the Lines

Readers raised a stink on social media after a perky, bright 19-year-old Kendall Jones posted some pictures of her posed with a lion and other animals she had killed.

The same thing happened to Melissa Bachman. Both are avid hunters, and none of the game they killed is endangered. They love to hunt, are good at it, and it serves them well. But while hunting is legal, it is no longer politically correct, and political correctness wins.

Following public outcries about killing these beautiful animals, Facebook has made it policy that posting pictures of animals killed during hunts will no longer be allowed.

Sure hunting offends some folks, but there are other Facebook pages that offend as well and they did not meet with the same fate. For instance, in response to Kendall Jones, there was a Facebook group page called “Kill Kendall Jones.”

It was apparently OK to call for the murder of a human being, but puh-leeze, no photos of a dead animal.

The “Kill Kendall Jones” page was eventually taken down, but in the meantime, there is another page -- a counter to “Kill Kendall Jones” page -- called “Remove Kill Kendall Jones.” As of this writing, that page is still up.

Shall we say Facebook seems to care about some complaints more than others? It appears that the former complaints about animals were heard much more quickly than the latter complaints about humans.

“Nebraska court date pushes final Keystone XL decision past the midterms”

Between the Lines

Is anyone surprised to hear that a decision will not be made until after the November elections? How convenient. The administration has only been procrastinating on this issue for the past five years. It has debated, studied, researched, and postponed making any decision about Keystone XL. This is not because of politics, they claim, but because of the “gravity” of the situation.

If you are to believe Edward Klein’s book Blood Feud, however, you will understand. The president does not like to make decisions, especially when it affects his liberal donors, some of whom stand to benefit financially with the demise of the pipeline.

In the meantime, we continue our dependence on foreign oil, which is subject to the whims of dictators and the turmoil in the Middle East.
