The Citizen Candidate Family

April 26, 2012
The Citizen Candidate Family

We discussed the Citizen Candidate and now I’d like to give an up close and somewhat personal look at the Citizen Candidate family. A friend of mine, Dave Gebhart, is running for City Council in the small town of Bedford, Texas. Right now the Mid-cities are being run by the school districts. So last time […]

The Rise of the Citizen Candidate

April 24, 2012
The Rise of the Citizen Candidate

Attending meetings around the county, I talked with many of the candidates who were making the rounds.  I heard great stories of how regular business people, regular Joe’s, were stepping up to run for office at the local, state AND national level.  I was intrigued by these Bravehearts, many of whom need to work a […]

And Then There Was One!

And Then There Was One!

By Jube Dankworth Fort Worth, Texas April 12, 2012 Yes, Newt is still “officially” in the race, though that has more to do with his hope of influencing the convention’s platform than it does of winning the nomination.  However, with the exit of Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney is the de facto candidate – and in […]

How many of you are enjoying having all the candidates at the meetings?  Aren’t they nice people?  And they all say they are conservatives!  Well, for the incumbents here is their report cards so you can ask them why they scored so low, or congratulate them on scoring so high.  Most of them you will […]

Romney Loses in Texas!

February 5, 2012

While the Mainstream Media has already picked their Republican Party candidate for President, Saturday’s Nevada Caucus and Texas’s Straw Poll clearly demonstrates that Republican voters have neither made their own choice nor endorsed the Media’s Favorite Son. Meanwhile in Texas, in the Tarrant County/Fort Worth Straw Poll which also concluded on Saturday, Romney placed last […]

This blog will be an expansion on the tweets that went out as I covered the folks giving us their pitch, telling us why they were the best candidate for the office.

Protest Like it’s 1968 Again!

November 14, 2011
Protest Like it’s 1968 Again!

The other week, a facebook friend asked how these OSW protests compared to the protests of the 1960s.  Then, for some dumb reason, I was watching a show about Phil Collins and he was redoing all the Motown Hits, which was weird in and off itself.  However, one of the founders of Motown was in […]

What Time is it Kids?

What Time is it Kids?

It’s early voting time! Sure sure, it’s not as sexy and dramatic as the presidential election, but then real voting is not for kids, or people who act like kids.  Real voting takes research, decision making skills and time to go to the voting location, usually during working hours. However, we are here to help! […]

September 27, 2011
neighborstalking

Well, Politics are not slimming if you are a candidate having to go to breakfast, lunch and dinner meetings every day. However for the Grass Roots folks, this is an excellent time to put on the walking shoes and walk your blocks.  With ACORN hiring folks on Craig’s List to “canvass” neighborhoods, that is, to […]

Would Senate Democrats Elect Governor and Lt. Governor in Texas?

August 23, 2011

Even before Governor Perry tossed his hat in the ring for a Presidential run, I was wondering if Straus would be Governor upon the election of Perry for President and Dewhurst for US Senate.  Apparently I am not the only one wondering what would happen if our Governor and Lt. Governor were elected to new […]
