  1. I have a black friend so Im not a racist says:

    A racist President cannot possibly represent all Americans. Discuss.

      Robert Francis O’Rourke announced that his family were slave owners and that somehow this makes him a better choice for President.

      Should he be “the one” to finally apologize for the Democrat party’s long history of slave ownership and for forming the Ku Klux Klan and embarking in a decades-long campaign of violent terrorism against black people?

      The Democrats are pushing for reparations. America didn’t own slaves. Democrats owned slaves.

      A Democrat killed the first Republican President and a Democrat killed Martin Luther King.

      Yet now Democrats call Republicans racist, when it is the Democrat party who has a history of violent, murderous racism.

          We are all left pondering which coward has made which statement. If you are still unaware that those Democrats who did own slaves, and those Democrats who started the KKK became today’s Republicans, then you need to educate yourselves. Just as today’s Republicans would be repugnant to the good ones of the past, so are today’s Democrats different from those of 1860. As for James Earl Ray being a Democrat, please tell us your source for that information? He was, by the way, already a convicted felon before he shot MLK. Catch up, guys (or gals, whatever the case may be).

            Your constant unecessary name-calling reminds me of a certain person in Washington. As for arguing whether James Earl Ray was a Democrat, he was a hardcore segregationist and George Wallace supporter and worked as a volunteer on Wallace’s campaign in California. That fact was reported in various media, including the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

      “Racist” The most over used and incorrectly used word in American history.

  2. What do you think it will take to get the voters out in mass to fight this billion dollar certificate of obligation that city hall wants?

    My friend went to the westside DMV to renew his driver’s license. Was asked to show proof of citizenship. He has to go back home to get his passport. How long has this been going on?

      Proof of residence, not citizenship. Your friend is confused. Have him take his meds.

        I was told by DMV that I could not renew online and had to bring my social security card and my passport to the office. No specific purpose was given but the clerk looked at both documents. Your passport is not proof of Texas residence!!

          Since your friend was off his meds, he probably forgot he could renew his license online,..ANYHOO…here is what is needed according to the Texas Depot of Motor Vehicles website:

          How does the online replacement or change of address work?
          Step 1: Log In

          Log in by entering your Driver license or ID card number,
          Date of birth,
          Last four digits of Social Security number, and
          Audit number (see driver license samples for location of audit number). In lieu of providing your audit number, you may select the checkbox on the login page stating “I do not know my audit number” to complete additional authentication for an additional fee of $1.75.

    • Fact says:

      It has nothing to do with residency or citizenship. It is to prove identity and has to do with U.S. DHS compliance. Texas is not the only state now requiring a birth certificate of passport to renew or get a driver’s license.

    I hate to burst your bubble but King Leopold pretty much was the chief exploiter and murderer of Africans. He was a Belgian Reagan Republican. He believed in the trickledown theory of black blood. O’Rourke is a shirttail Shanty Irishman. No self respecting slave would ever lay claim to him.

    Another good example of why people do not want to move to El Paso. Like Trump, El Paso area government hires only the best. And trustees don’t have the huevos to speak the truth.
