We lost an MLB player yesterday. Tyler Skaggs from the Angels is no longer with us.

No MLB question today.

They can do that? Commentary is talking about according to social media platforms and the Chron, the H-Town Mayor Turner Campaign is purchasing 170 memberships to the Houston GLBT Political Caucus, presumably to help win the endorsement next month. Pretty brazen. Why didn’t they just have each one of the 170 go online and fill out the application or mail in a check along with an application.

Commentary always thought that an individual had to pay their own dues. I didn’t know a political campaign could write a big check. I guess they can do that.

Memo to the candidates in the other races who are seeking the Caucus endorsement. Be nice to the H-Town Mayor’s campaign. They will have the biggest voting block at the meeting that day. Heck, they will have the controlling voting block that day.

I wonder how many memberships they bought to the Chron E-Board?

My friend Sue Lovell is now a candidate for mayor. She knows the issues. Of the five candidates: The Mayor, Bill King, Tony Buzbee, H-Town Council Member Dwight Boykins and Lovell – let me state the obvious. Sue is the only female.

Here is the Chron story on #BoycottBoykins: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Boykins-facing-backlash-over-comments-to-students-14065478.php?utm_campaign=CMS%20Sharing%20Tools%20(Premium)&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral.

Sigh!

This does not surprise me. Commentary is talking about Border Patrol agents talking racist crap against migrants and others on Facebook. The fella who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania set the standard, in this instance, a very low standard. Some Border Patrol agents feel emboldened so to speak because they have free reign from Trump. Here is from a Time piece:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is investigating reports of racist and sexist social media activity by current and former Border Patrol agents in response to a ProPublica report of a Facebook group known as “I’m 10-15.”

According to screenshots by ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative news outlet, roughly 9,500 current and former Border Patrol agents are a part of the private group, where they have shared offensive content including an illustration of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez performing oral sex at an immigrant detention center.

Commentators in the group referred to a drowned migrant father and his toddler as “floaters.” They also joked about tossing burritos at Hispanic members of Congress, including Ocasio-Cortez and El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar, who plan to visit the detention center in Clint, Texas, according to screenshots by ProPublica.

Sickening. That’s our Border Patrol.

Mark Zuckerberg could buy a lot of goodwill by taking the Border Patrol agents Facebook page and handing it over to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and to all the mainstream media. We need to expose these racists and do a cleansing of sorts.

CNN released a poll yesterday that showed former Vice President Joe Biden dropping ten points after his debate performance. He is vulnerable for sure.

We got two in Denver starting this evening.
