Monday, August 28, 2017 – Harvey, You Monster and If You Don’t Know Texas
Back story – I am a Native Texan. I was born in Houston and raised just north of the city. My family still resides in the Houston area. I now live 150 miles inland from the Gulf Coast. It has rained at my house constantly for the last 24 hours and as of daylight break, rain continues. I have witnessed Carla, Alecia, Brett, Allison, Rita, Katrina and all the other storms that slammed Texas in the past 68 years.
People unfamiliar with the state of Texas tend to say things such as “They knew the storm was coming so why didn’t they evacuate? This Here’s What I’m Thinking is for you.
Let me put it bluntly! If are not familiar with Texas or Texas geography and hurricanes, then shut up!

High from his gilded throne room in midtown Manhattan — like Zeus from Mt. Olympus — Donald Trump has been hurling tweeted spitballs at Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. He’s a man of “no action,” typed Trump with his tiny (manicured) fingers, of one of America’s true heroes of the modern age — a man so brutally assaulted by state troopers during the l965 march from Selma to Montgomery that he nearly died from a fractured skull.
Time and again Lewis was on the front line of the fight for civil rights, spat upon, insulted and vilified, while far to the north, Donald Trump was using the fortune handed him by his father to launch a real estate empire without ever getting his fingernails dirty.
Now, for daring to say that Trump cannot be “a legitimate president” because of Russia’s help in electing him, John Lewis is #1 on Trump’s hit list. Yes, Donald Trump — whose political career took off with a campaign of lies about Barack Obama’s birthplace with the intent of denying the president his legitimacy.
John Lewis needn’t be worried about what Donald Trump thinks of him; he’s faced down bullies and bigots before, tough guys with billy clubs and water hoses in the streets instead of a wannabe tinpot of no class glowering from his penthouse lair and showering loutish insults at his betters below; Trump isn’t fit to be a carbuncle on John Lewis’s posterior. Take a look at a real hero in this profile we produced of Lewis on the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington. Arm-in-arm with Martin Luther King and other giants of the time, John Lewis walked right into the history books.
