Texas continues to defy political logic. The latest is a political action committee named “Boats and Hoes PAC.” That was until it sparked outrage and the “Boats and Hoes PAC” will now be just a memory. One that leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

A Texas political action committee called Boats ‘N Hoes PAC will be just a memory by Thursday, according to the Republican political consultant who is the boss of the man who started it.

Houston consultant Allen Blakemore confirmed Wednesday evening that his firm’s bookkeeper, Shaun Nowacki, started the PAC, which is a reference to a song from the 2008 film Step Brothers. The committee will be dissolved on Thursday, Blakemore said.

Blakemore said Nowacki was contrite about the controversy created by the PAC’s name, which surfaced on social media Wednesday afternoon. Nowacki filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission to create the PAC on April 1 and named himself treasurer. The PAC has not filed any fundraising reports since its creation two weeks ago. It is the only PAC Nowacki is listed with on the Texas Ethics Commission’s website.

Nowacki did not respond to several requests for comment Wednesday.

Ex-Rep. Allen West’s New Book Riddled with Fake Quotes from Founding Fathers

Ex-Rep. Allen West’s New Book Riddled with Fake Quotes from Founding Fathers

If you are going to write a book, at least get your quotes correct to avoid the embarrassment of being called out.  Former Florida lawmaker Allen West has a new book out and its riddled with quotes attributed to the Founding Fathers that were never uttered.

According to the Palm Beach Post, West’s “Guardian of the Republic,” which outlines his political philosophy and his “warrior code,” includes many quotes that have been described by historians as erroneous.

“Thomas Jefferson said it first: ‘A government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take it away,’” West wrote.

According to researchers at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia, while that quote has appeared on coffee cups and t-shirts, it doesn’t appear in any of Jefferson’s writings. So many fake quotations have been attributed to the drafter of the Declaration of Independence, that the foundation felt compelled to create a “Spurious Quotations” list…

A quote attributed to Patrick Henry in West’s book didn’t come from the Virginian’s writings or speeches, says Henry biographer Thomas Kidd, a professor of history at Baylor University.

West quotes Henry as saying: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

Kidd described the quote as a new one that has gained popularity via the Internet.

Dwayne Yeager Stages Burglary at FL Home Because He Wanted to Skip Work

Dwayne Yeager didn’t want to go to work at Dooson Hydro Technology on Monday so he staged a burglary at his Florida home, then called the police to report it shortly after 7 a.m.

Yeager said he had been gone from his home for only 45 minutes when he discovered the break-in. He told a 911 dispatcher,  “I come back, my door’s wide open. My windows to my son’s bedroom are open. My TVs are laying on the ground.”

When deputies arrived at the home, they discovered it was ransacked, with a door and window open, but no signs of forced entry, as Dwayne Yeager claimed. They also questioned neighbors, who told them they saw Yeager leaving his home for a short time and then returning. They also told police, when Yeager returned, they saw him lift the blinds and open the window. The neighbors further state that he walked outside the house and waited for police to arrive, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said. Ooops!

The Tampa Bay Times reports that a tipster said there was no vehicle at Dwayne Yeager’s house before he arrived back home.  He was charged with one count of providing false information to law enforcement and was later released on $500 bail.

 

‘Scottish Aristocrats’ Colin and Andrea Chisholm Arrested for Welfare Fraud

(OPINION) — These are the faces of welfare fraud in the U.S. that the Republican Party would choose to ignore…

‘Scottish Aristocrats’ Colin and Andrea Chisholm Arrested for Welfare Fraud

Colin Chisholm III and his wife, Andrea, allegedly received more than $165,000 in food stamps and other public assistance benefits for a 7-year-period while living on a multi-million yacht in Florida. Um, these people aren’t in the 47 percent of Americans Mitt Romney called deadbeats.

The couple, residents of Minnesota, were caught in the Bahamas after police told them their visas had expired. They were escorted, along with their son and dog, onto a ship bound for Fort Lauderdale. The ‘Scottish aristocrats’ were arrested on their arrival in Port Everglades, according to a statement from Hennepin County prosecutor, Mike Freeman’s office.

Colin and Andrea Chisholm were each charged with a felony count of wrongfully obtaining public assistance in excess of $35,000.

The couple purchased a $1.2 million yacht, known as The Andrea Aras in April 2005, shortly after applying for welfare benefits in Minnesota, according to criminal complaints which were originally filed in February but remained sealed while authorities searched for them.

The Chisholms lived on the yacht near Palm Beach, Fla., for 28 months while they claimed to be living in Minnesota, the complaints say. Colin Chisholm was the chief executive officer of a satellite TV and broadband services company, while his wife bred pedigree dogs.

The Chisholms allegedly deposited more than $2.6 million in bank accounts not reported on their applications for welfare benefits between 2005 and 2012, the complaints say. They lived in luxury homes in suburban Minneapolis and previously owned a $30,000 Lexus. They also collected benefits in Florida.

Colin and Andrea Chisholm are two rich people trying to rip off the system, all the while people like Paul Ryan and others in the Republican Party as screaming for cuts to food stamps and other programs to help the poor, insinuating that there’s fraud. Yeah, there’s fraud from rich white folks ripping off the system.

If you use profanity, you are persona non grata in Ocean City, Maryland, which is imposing a “ban” on the use of profanity, CBS reports. “No profanity, please” signs will be posted on every block of the boardwalk, after the city council voted on the measure earlier this week.

CBS Baltimore reports that if you use the f-word, “there’s no citation because Ocean City can’t legally outlaw profanity,” but if you’re making a scene while cursing, you could be popped for disorderly conduct.

Thousands Sign ‘Alaska Back to Russia’ Petition Seeking Secession from US

Thousands Sign Petition Asking for Alaska to Secede from US, Rejoin Russia (Credit: Wikipedia)

ALASKA BACK TO RUSSIA PETITION:  There has to be something in the water in Alaska for anyone in their right mind to want the state to secede from the U.S. and re-join Russia. Is the hatred for President Obama that great that they would trade their personal liberties for a country with one of the worst human rights records in the world?

A petition has been launched on the White House website calling for Alaska to go back to Russia, which became the 49th American state on January 3, 1959. The application, “Alaska Back to Russia,” was created by ‘S.V. of Anchorage, and has received nearly 30,000 signatures in just under a week.

The petition begins ‘Groups Siberian russians (sic) crossed the Isthmus (now the Bering Strait) 16-10 thousand years ago’ and continues ‘Russian began to settle on the Arctic coast, Aleuts inhabited the Aleutian Archipelago.’

Um, I would go by my initials too if I put such garbage up on the White House website. It’s safe to say S.V., like Sarah Palin, can see Russia from his or her backyard…..

Here’s the ‘Alaska Back to Russia‘ petition:

Johran McCormick Killed by Texas Father Who Found Him in Bed with Daughter

Johran McCormick Killed by Texas Father Who Found Him in Bed with Daughter

Johran McCormick, 17, was fatally shot by a Texas father after he found him in his teenage daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning.

Johran McCormick’s mother, Zakia McCormick, told KHOU 11 News that she wants the shooter to apologize for killing the teen.

Investigators say the suspect’s daughter let McCormick into the house. The father told police he was awakened by one of his four children who said someone was in the house, located in the 22300 block of Bridgestone Ridge Drive in Spring.

At first, the man’s daughter denied knowing Johran McCormick and an argument erupted between the teen and the father. He said he shot McCormick when he reached for something.

Johran McCormick was unarmed. The daughter later admitted to knowing the teen and that she let him into the home. A grand jury will decide if manslaughter charges will be filed against the unidentified father.

If anyone is to be blamed, it’s the daughter for allowing Johran McCormick into her parents’ home without their permission and lying when they were caught. Also, the teen should have been at home during those hours of the morning.
