Wendy Davis supporters are pretty excited about her campaign for governor of Texas but when pressed to name one of her legislative accomplishments, they’re surprisingly silent.

Yehuda Remer of Truth Revolt sees a pattern:

Just as Hillary Clinton supporters were unable to name a single accomplishment of the former Secretary of State, Wendy...

Bumper Stickers - Porter TX - Jesus Saves Obama Spends

Professor J…

I was at my Local Tractor Supply store in Porter, Texas, just northeast of Houston on I69 and saw this in the parking lot. As you can see,it’s a veritable rolling billboard for the First Amendment. I didn’t see the driver, but up here in this neck of the woods it could literally be anyone!

The bumper stickers are a real nice touch, too!

Thanks for all you and your cadre of Freedom Fighters do! You are an inspiration to all us folks out here who are also battling the chaos of this lawless president and AG sidekick.

I’d wager that you battle so much chaos that you sometimes feel like Maxwell Smart (a better ‘spoken pun’)!!

Best regards,

Trooper “John Smith”

Per its tradition in the second week of May, America’s business leaders have voted for the states with the “best” and “worst” business climates.

As usual, Chief Executive Magazine places California at the top….of the naughty list!

That’s 10 years in a row — a decade of dominance.

Over that same period, California saw...

Toyota is leaving Southern California for Texas, via USA Today:

Toyota is moving its national headquarters from the Los Angeles suburbs to Plano, Texas.

It will create a sprawling campus north of Dallas that will bring together 4,000 employees from manufacturing, sales and marketing and corporate...

Wendy Davis rose to national prominence when she conducted a filibuster to block a Texas bill restricting non-medically necessary abortions after 20-weeks. For that position, which is wildly unpopular, Davis became the next Elizabeth Warren — the Great White Hope in pink sneakers.

Erick Erickson dubbed her “Abortion Barbie,” which led to...

Among the nicest things the Democratic smear machine called Sarah Palin was “Caribou Barbie.” Just about everything else they called her was much worse.

The term “Caribou Barbie” started within days of Palin’s nomination for Veep in August 2008.  By September 2, 2008, the term was spreading throughout the left-blogosphere, as

I made the rare mistake of watching Morning Joe today.

Wendy Davis was on the show to take a “victory” lap, a word used by Joe Scarborough.

This clip was being described by Davis and all the panelists as one of the most outrageous personal attacks since forever:

With so much going on last night and today, we didn’t cover the filibuster by Texas State Senator and new Democratic hero Wendy Davis.

Davis gave a 13+ hour filibuster against a Texas proposed law restricting abortions after 20-weeks. Her filibuster was joined by hundreds of screaming protesters reminiscent of the...

Saw the sign below on a bridge in Austin during my trip last month.

The bridge is hundreds of feet above the water.

Do you need to tell people not to dive?
