Wonders Never Cease! SCOTUS Upholds Texas Voter ID Law

vote

What a pleasant pre-college football Saturday this has turned out to be.

In an unsigned 6-3 decision, the SCOTUS has “ordered” that the voter ID law be allowed…for now.

For an extensive explanation of the order and the future standing of the ID law is HERE.

I have no idea how the ID law will fare in further court actions, as the federal judge(appointed by President Obola) is determined to prove the law is unconstitutional, which the SCOTUS did not address in this order.

In any event, it is a happy day knowing that for at least this federal election(early voting in Texas starts Monday the 20th) voters that make an appearance at polling stations will have to identify themselves. This gives legal voters more certainty and confidence that their vote actually means something.

At least for this election, the race-baiters and other libturds that would weaken the election process are pushed back.

NCAA Football: Beat The Hell OUt of Texsa

beat texsa

This rivalry began in 1900 and today’s 109th meeting will mark the 86th consecutive game played in Dallas…at the Cotton Bowl…in the middle of the State Fair.

Rankings and records don’t matter much, it’s like a Bowl game in the middle of the season.

Former Sooner Gabe Ikard(last year’s NCAA football Academic All-American of the year) penned a wonderful article about what this annual grudge match means, it’s a good read from a player’s perspective.

Everyone must realize how rare of an opportunity it is to be able to wear SOONERS across your chest against Texas. It takes someone a lot more intelligent than me to figure out the odds of a guy playing in the Red River Showdown. I feel extremely blessed to have been able to play in four of them. There is no feeling like it. Unfortunately for the fans, it is nearly impossible to describe the feeling of coming out of that tunnel. The best way I can describe the feeling is to tell you to imagine having to work extremely hard to watch the movie scene that gives you Goosebumps every time you see it and then add 90,000 passionate screaming fans in the mix. For me, that’s like putting in serious work to watch the hospital scene in Remember the Titans when Julius Campbell and Gerry Bertier exchange the “left side, strong side” while a stadium is yelling at me. So if the “you had me at hello” scene in Jerry Maguire gets you or Russell Crowe’s speech to the emperor in Gladiator tickles your fancy, imagine working as hard as you can to get to that point and then add all the yelling people.

The following video is the “tunnel experience” for OU, with Ikard(#64) as one of the captains in the 2012 game. I recommend a full screen and high volume.

The Sooners are coming off of a disappointing loss last week and in Coach Stoop’s previous 15 seasons OU has lost back to back games only once. In addition, the inexplicable loss to Texsa last year still rankles the returning players from that squad. Bragging Rights matter in this game, especially when it comes to recruiting and OU being the home team this year will have approximately 25 recruits from the 2015-2017 clases attending as OU guests.

I will close with one of my favorite quotes from an OU all-time great Brian Bosworth(home town Irving, Texas):

Burnt orange makes me puke.

OU Football: We Call Him…Moneycutt

null

His proper name is Michael Hunnicutt, but the former walk-on kicker and now R-Sr. is the all-time scoring leader for OU, surpassing Demarco Murray’s career points total of 390 points with the kick in the above photo. Moneycutt now has 392 points for his career, with at least nine more games to be played.

While most football fans would prefer their kicker only appear for the point after, too often a games outcome is determined by this seldom used player. Each weekend there are games decided by the failure or success of team’s field goal kickers.

Moneycutt became the OU starting kicker his R-Fr year after the third game of the season at Florida St. when OU was ranked #1. This kick is what propelled Moneycutt into the kicker’s job and he has been excellent since.

Since that kick Moneycutt has been the man, averaging 85.8% field goals made in that time. His stat sheet can be found here.

For us Sooner fans we will be pulling for him to break the FBS record for most points by a kicker(FBS: 459 – Dustin Hopkins, Florida State, 2009–12) and/or most points in a career(FBS: 500 – Montee Ball, Wisconsin, 2009–12). Based on his totals for the past three years I think he has a real shot at breaking the kicker’s record.

In any event, Moneycutt is non-plussed about all of this, he alread has his B.A. and is working on his masters in Administrative Leadership.

He is a proud life-long Sooner and now a Sooner all-time Great.

He also has a great sense of humor.

Perry’s Indictment~Round 2

AUSTIN — The special prosecutor in the case against Gov. Rick Perry is asking for some help.
San Antonio lawyer Michael McCrum, who guided the case to last month’s indictment, filed a motion Friday asking a state court to fund a co-counsel.
Link

Sounds ominous, that the Governor’s legal team is actually fighting back with motions and the libturd’s hand picked lawyer is overwhelmed with answering…both of them.

As mentioned in another post, this was never about Gov. Perry violating the constitution, it was about violating the law of the libturds which states their officials can never and should never be held to any societal standards or laws that the “little people” should.
Or as John Ransom at Townhall stated in a column well worth the read:

Perry, it seems, committed the unpardonable sin of holding the DA responsible for drunkenness. How dare mere mortals hold the people responsible for prosecuting crimes to a standard that applies to the rest of us?

The main point to the libturds wanting the Perry indictment hasn’t changed, the conviction is meaningless only the indictment matters and the libturd media got the memo, every time Gov. Perry is mentioned by one of the LSM outlets it is always “the indicted Gov. Perry.”

To further illustrate how low the chances are of Gov. Perry being convicted are, it seems the aforementioned Michael McCrum is facing very serious contempt of court charges.

Prosecutors filed a contempt of court motion against San Antonio-based attorney Michael McCrum in January, after a separate case the previous fall. In it, one of McCrum’s clients was convicted of manslaughter for driving his car the wrong-way down an interstate with a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, and sparking a head-on crash that killed two men.
McCrum was accused of telling his client’s former addiction counselor to “get lost for a while” and not be available to testify at the trial’s punishment phase.

Yes, Gov. Perry has reason to smile, the smell of libturd fail has that effect on reasonable people.

Execution Watch: Lisa Ann Coleman(Updated)

**UPDATES**
*Last meal:For her last meal, Lisa Coleman was served a fried pork chop, macaroni and cheese, carrots, green beans, navy beans, sliced bread, and pineapple orange cake, with a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink(per Last Suppers).

*Last words:Her last words were directed at her fellow inmate, Darlie Routier(murderer of her own children).
‘Tell them I finished strong,’ she said.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Thug: Lisa Ann Coleman(28 at time of crime)
*Date of execution: September 17, 2014
*Date of crime: July 26, 2004
*Victim: Davontae Williams(age 9)
*Last meal: TBA, no special requests allowed
*Final Words: TBA

As our friend Robbie used to always say, “some people are just no damned good.” Truer words have never been spoken when Lisa Ann Coleman is concerned.

The facts of the case can be found HERE, but to summarize she brutalized and starved to death a nine year old boy.

Crime Scene Investigator Regina Taylor testified that Davontae had “numerous injuries throughout … his entire body,” including a disfigured ear, swollen hands, a slit in his lip, and “ligature marks around his wrists and ankles.” Pediatrician Nancy Kellogg identified over 250 wounds on his corpse. Dr. Konzelmann testified that injuries to Davontae’s hands, arms, and ankles were consistent with his having been bound repeatedly. Konzelmann initially believed that Davontae had “life-threatening blunt-force injuries, perhaps bleeding on the brain, broken bones, et cetera” that caused his death.
Ultimately, however, Dr. Konzelmann deemed the cause of Davontae’s death to be malnutrition with pneumonia.

The young boy wasn’t her son, not even a blood relative, but the son of her homosexual lover, Marcella Williams. The facts of the case and the procedural history give no weight to her sexual preference or her race, but that hasn’t stopped an absolute loon for a lawyer, John Stickles, from going where no death penalty opponent has gone before.

“What she’s really guilty of is being a black lesbian,” Stickels said. “If she is executed, it will be because of her sexual orientation. Her sexual orientation played a role in the state choosing to seek the death penalty and in her getting the death penalty.

For someone to knowingly and willingly harm a child in any way already puts them on my bad side. Starving to death while torturing this young boy is unforgivable and I sincerely hope all her sick lawyer’s tricks are exhausted so she can receive the justice she has earned and that society demands.

NCAA Football: An Upset In Norman?

In football, almost any outcome is possible, even if not very likely.

Here we have John Adams of the Knoxville News(Tennessee) break down for us the reasons why the Vols could upset OU.

His research and unfettered confidence in the Vols is commendable.

EXECUTION WATCH: Willie Tyrone Trottie

Willie Trottie

**Updates**
Last meal: Trottie was served the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Willie Trottie had baked chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes, bread, and a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.(per Last Suppers)

Last words: “Find it in your hearts to forgive me. I’m sorry,” he continued. “Jesus take me home.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Thug: Willie Tyrone Trottie(age 27 at time of murders)
*Date of execution: 10 September 2014(after 6p.m. Central)
*Date of crime: 3 May 1993
*Victims: Barbara Nell Canada 24, Titus C. Canada 29
*Last meal: TBA, no special requests allowed.
*Last words: TBA

It has been nearly twenty one years since Trottie was sentenced to death by a Harris County jury. That jury issued their sentence only seven months after his double murder.

It is truly unfortunate that it is taking this long for justice to be served. There is no dispute in his guilt, there were numerous witnesses to the crimes and he drove himself to the hospital in one of the victims car for a gun shot wound.

Facts of the case:

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit described the murders of Barbara and Titus Canada as follows:
