El Paso Lawmaker Denied Admittance To Hispanic Caucus Because He’s White

Congressman Beto O'Rourke is not being allowed to be a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus because he is not Hispanic.  The CHC's mission is to "voicing and advancing, through the legislative process, issues affecting Hispanics in the United States".  But I guess they don't care about "advancing" the 80% of El Paso Hispanics because we voted in the white guy to represent us.  Big ups to you, CHC!

Salma Hayek Sings American National Anthem On Letterman Show And Makes Mexican Media Mad

Salma Hayek was on David Letterman last week, and she sang the American National Anthem, a portion of the Mexican National Anthem, and admitted that she doesn't know much of the French National Anthem, even though she lives in Paris with her French husband.  But some of the Mexican media had a problem with the fact that she only sang just a bit of the Mexican Anthem, and then proceeded to sing the entire American National Anthem.  I thought it was great, and it really proved a point.

Texas Ranks as a Leading State for Collecting Sin Taxes

All of the drinking and smoking indiscretions of Texans have become a multi-billion dollar business, as a recent report indicates that the state’s sin tax revenue has risen over 107 percent within the last decade.

According to Bloomberg, while Texas takes pride in low personal income tax and overall tax rates, taxes on alcohol by itself generated about $930 million in revenue in 2012 – that’s 42 percent more than in 2011.

The Final Words of the Last Five Texas Inmates Executed for Their Crimes

For over 30 years, the state of Texas has been compiling a semi-disturbing database consisting of the “last words” of death row inmates just before the killswitch was pulled.

Just last week, the Lone Star state executed its 500th prisoner, which was documented for the sake of the darkest posterity by having her final words put into a sadistic, online database that serves to keep the flame of a dead man’s criminal legacy alive past the pulse of their ghost.
