EXECUTION WATCH: Ray Jasper (TX)*Updated*

David Alejandro

*Thug: Ray Jasper (19 at time of offense)
*Date of Execution:March 19, 2014
*Date of Crime: November 29, 1998
*Victim: David Alejandro(33)
*Last Meal: Same shit salad served to inmates that day. *UPDATE*: For his last meal, Jasper had baked chicken, roasted potatoes, a vegetable blend, navy beans, and sliced bread. He was given a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.(per Last Suppers Book)
*Final Words: TBD. I expect them to be self-serving. *UPDATE*: Before being put to death, Jasper spoke quietly, asking his family to “take care of each other, stay strong and faithful to God.” He also thanked his supporters and told his daughter that he loved her, adding that she “be strong, be positive, have a great life.” Jasper then asked that the “Lord God almighty in heaven Jesus Christ see my spirit.”(per Pro-Death Penalty)
No mention of the victim or remorse for his crime.

Now comes one Ray Jasper, a murderer that claims he isn’t because his cutting the throat of the victim wasn’t declared the cause of death, his accomplices twenty stab wounds were deemed the cause. A truly pathetic defense that has been lapped up by the bowl full from the hand-wringing thug lovers. He planned the crime, initiated it, offered no assistance to the man whose throat he slashed, then covered the victim so he wouldn’t have to look at him as he carried out his planned robbery.

The death penalty is intended for creatures such as this and come this Wednesday evening, Jasper will become Satan’s newest chew toy.

Jasper got some recent attention for a narcissistic, pathetic, self-serving and remorseless long winded letter which was published at numerous blogs and websites.  I won’t give it a direct link here, nor to the response from the brother of David Alejandro(Steven).  I will link to an interesting article I found in the Dallas Morning News yesterday, Stop turning death row inmates into tragic celebrities. The author isn’t my newest hero, nor is Steven Alejandro, but they are certainly more clear and direct than Jasper.

Jasper is fully and solely responsible for his pending execution, not the State of Texas.

Who is Ted Cruz?

who is ted cruz

As we noted previously, the real loser after CPAC actually won the presidential straw poll.  So, who was the big winner?  The junior senator from the Lone Star Republic.

via the cube

- When Al Gore invented the Internet, his inbox already contained three unread emails from Ted Cruz.

- Ted Cruz has a quadruple citizenship in the U.S., Canada, Middle-earth and Westeros.

- If you superimpose Ted Cruz’s fingerprints, the resulting image will be the Seal of the President of the United States.

- When Ted Cruz got bit by a rattle snake, the snake had to sign up for Obamacare but couldn’t get through the login screen and died after a week of pain and agony in front of the computer.

- Ted Cruz has already won the presidential election in 2016 with a roundhouse kick in the polls; the pollsters just haven’t developed the technology to look that far into the future.

Losing is good: Stranger Things Have Happened I Know

Dave Jolly has pulled the first upset of the 2014 election cycle in FL-13 over Democrat Alex Sink.  Pundits on the Right have begun to cautiously speak of  a bellwether victory, and a harbinger of things to come.  Optimistic talk for sure, but frankly something that ought scare the pants off Democrats (sorry for that visual).

However for Debbie Schultz, losing isn’t such a bad thing:

“Tonight, Republicans fell short of their normal margin in this district because the agenda they are offering voters has a singular focus – that a majority of voters oppose – repealing the Affordable Care Act* that would return us to the same old broken health care system,”

If this is encouraging news in a Florida district that was carried twice by Obama, then how encouraged should the Left be?  In the most recent nationwide approval ratings, Obamacare is still  20 points upside-down.

IKR?

So, is there a silver lining for the Left? I say yes, and it has nothing to do with Schultz’s hastily cobbled talking points.

The real loser here I think is Rand Paul who came out in support of Overby, the Libertarian.  In a race that was decided by less than 2 points, Paul would have had a lot of ‘splaining to do had Overby proven to be the spoiler.  Perhaps “loser” is too strong.  But, any time Republicans bicker among themselves, Dems smile, and the Leftist media machine has more ammo to try to control the next news cycle.

I fully expect to hear some comments from Ted Cruz to follow shortly, as the contest between he and Paul for the direction of the GOP continues.  I also expect those comments to be mischaracterized, as media shills continue to try and deflect the public’s attention away from President Obama’s signature achievement.

Stranger things have happened, I know.

Deniers refuse to see reality

In 1921, advertising executive Fred R. Barnard originated the phrase, “One Look Is Worth a Thousand Words”, which has evolved over the years to become “A picture is Worth a thousand words.”

Perfectly illustrated here, don’t you think? (click to enlarge)

Deniers-infringers

I’ve been tinkering around with new nick-names for the gun-grabbing crowd, and narrowed it down to 2:

1) Deniers - turning their own Gore-bull warming tactics on them.  and,

2) Infringers – as in, “What part of ‘shall not be infringed’ don’t you get?

I like ‘em both.  what do y’all think?

This spring, when I went out to get my beds ready for planting annuals, I discovered a pumpkin patch growing in my backyard.  Why?  Because I had thrown the remnants of a painted, carved, and otherwise desecrated jack-o-lantern back there months before and completely forgotten about it.  That’s what Mississippi mud will do for you.

The state of Mississippi is one of those places that rarely gets taken seriously.  Like other national punch line destinations—West Virginia, New Jersey, I know you feel me here—comedians and commentators across the land feel free to take our name in vain.

To a certain extent, we have it coming.  We bottom out so many lists—per capita income and education for starters—and manage to lead the nation in things like obesity, teen pregnancy, infant mortality, and number of smokers.  It’s sad, and, trust me, we know it.

I say “we” although I am not a…

Happy 178th Birthday, Texas

On this day in 1836, Texas declared itself a free and sovereign nation.

For the following ten history filled years until it was annexed by the U.S. Government, Texas fought for its freedom and liberty beginning with an historic slogan directed at the Mexican Government.

Gonzales Battle Flag

Our finest U.S. Senator(soon to be the Senior Senator from Texas), Ted Cruz, issued a statement for the occasion.  As always, Sen. Cruz was clear and precise.

“Courage and a love of liberty have long been defining characteristics of the Texas spirit. Both were exemplified 178 years ago when fifty-nine delegates convened in Independence Hall at Washington-on-the-Brazos to declare Texas’ independence.

“Inflamed by General Santa Anna’s refusal to abide by the Mexican Constitution of 1824 and inspired by the United States’ first Declaration of Independence, the men produced their own Declaration and resolved ‘that the people of Texas do now constitute a free, Sovereign, and independent republic.’

“The same love of ‘life, liberty, and property of the people’ that spurred the Texians at the Alamo and throughout the Revolution still lives in each Texan today. They fought for it. They died for it. We owe it to their sacrifice to carry the torch of freedom for future generations. And we will.

“Keep that resolve strong and when anyone threatens our liberties, proudly say, as only a Texan can, ‘come and take it!’”

For long time or life long Texians these words are instilled early on and accepted without question, as evidenced by our state song which was adopted in 1924.


Verse 2:

Texas, O Texas! Your freeborn single star,
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far.
Emblem of freedom! It sets our hearts aglow,
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.

Verse 3:

Texas, dear Texas! From tyrant grip now free,
Shines forth in splendor your star of destiny!
Mother of heroes! We come your children true,
Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.

So Happy Birthday, Texas.  May you continue to be a beacon of freedom and liberty in these troubling times

Take my love, take my land. Take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell them I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be Since I've found Serenity......But you can't take the sky from me.
