Tuesday Stuff

Which MLB club has struck out the most opposing batters?

Commentary thought the Texas House Speaker was a pretty savvy political player. Shows you what I know.  It looks like he stepped in for sure. Why in the heck would he meet with the Empower Texans fella. That makes absolutely no sense. He certainly deserves the bad publicity he is getting. It is all on him.

The new polling for Texas has #BetoForAmerica looking the best in Texas against Donald Trump. Just a snapshot folks.

From the Chron:

A trip to baggage claim at the airport turned into a mini-protest rally against Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz over the weekend.

Cruz was at the Los Angeles International Airport with his family when protesters circled around him to voice their displeasure with President Donald Trump’s border policies, which Cruz has largely supported. Cruz has been an advocate for building Trump’s border wall and increasing scrutiny of amnesty claims.

In a social media video of the confrontation, Cruz can be seen smiling and posing for pictures with other airport passengers as the crowd chants “free the children.” While the protesters are chanting, Cruz’s family can be seen leaving the area.

The video of the event was reposted by thousands on Monday, including by Voto Latino, a civic engagement group. That organization said politicians like Cruz “don’t get to be comfortable in public” as long as people are being locked in cages, a reference to conditions in border detention facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Here is the entire article: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/politics/texas/article/Protesters-mob-Ted-Cruz-at-Los-Angeles-airport-14203560.php?src=hp_totn.

In normal times, nobody would have paid attention to Sen. Cruz, but these are not normal times. Sen. Cruz knows that Trump is racist. He knows it is wrong to separate families and put kids in cages and he sides with Trump rather than speak out courageously because he fears Trump’s base. Then this happens. If he doesn’t think it is wrong, then this happens. These times are not for cowards.

Commentary put out this last Friday:

Royko sent me this on my mention of the Mueller hearing yesterday:

Won’t the statute of limitations expire (as they expired for Hillary’s crimes when Mueller drug out the Russia investigation for two years) during Trump’s second term?

It should be “when Mueller dragged out the Russia…”

Well, Royko responded with this:

Examples of Drug

She refused to exit the vehicle and was drug out of the vehicle. —Merrill Foto News

She wasn’t carried out of the house. She was drug out of the house. —Rapid City Journal

To that extent, Networx was handicapped out of the gate when the licensing process was drug out over 18 months by telecoms like Time Warner, which wanted to prevent Memphis from obtaining a competitive edge in the industry. —Memphis Flyer

Got it. They are still wrong.

Astros pitchers of course have struck out 1,084 batters to lead MLB.

We are a half game behind the Dodgers for best record in MLB.
