CITY'S RESPONSE TO OPEN RECORDS JUST TOO BIZARRE TO BE BELIEVABLE
 
A legal description is what you find on a deed when you buy and sell land.  Get it - it is what tells the world what it is you are selling or buying.

I messed up and just should have asked for the deed which gives the city ownership of Lincoln Park, but instead I asked for its legal description.

Here is the response approved by Mark Sossi - Brownsville's esteemed city attorney.

"Bobby, we do not have a legal description for Lincoln Park."

You see, I have done the legal research and my next step is to review the deed.  Under the law I can find no case in Texas or at the federal level which under the language of the Texas statute allows for the outright sale of an entire park.

The key is the deed.  Deed restrictions are everything - so I need the deed - but without the legal description I cannot access the deed.

Someone - anyone - without a legal description how in hell does the city intend to convey Lincoln park to UT - how does UT know what they are buying?

This simple reality and game by Mark Sossi tells me there is something in the deed which does not bode well for Tony Martinez and his machinations - and that Mark Sossi is prepared to lie and cheat to insure this deal goes through.

Under the law there is no issue in my mind a judge would immediately enjoin the city as to any sale until such time as the city produces the legal description so the deed can be reviewed by the citizens of Brownsville.  The mere filing of such a lawsuit would immediately end UT's interest in the land.













THE TWO KINKS IN THE ELECTION

Carlos Cascos is beyond a doubt one of the biggest crybabies in politics I have ever seen. He orders his trained monkey to throw mud and obfuscate the issues, and then goes running like a baby to is mama when the other kids on the play ground throw the mud back at him

If you are to believe Cascos and his supporters his mud is clean and pure while everyone else is dirty.  Cascos would have you believe he is shocked there is politics in politics.

For every valid complaint people have against him he deflects with distractions - that is fine because it is politics - but man up dude - grow a pair - and stop whining lie a baby.

I am the first to agree that Gilbert Hinojosa is the Ebola virus for Texas and LRGV Democrats.  If they loose it will be on their backs for their refusal to run like hell from this scum of the earth.  When you choose to align with the worst of the worst you deserve to loose.

Oscar Garcia and Carlos Cascos could have won with a clean campaign asking the simple question, who are the LRGV Democrats?  They then should have put pictures of Gilbert Hinojosa, Abel Limas, Armando Villalobos, Conrado Cantu, and Jim Solis.  A simple slogan - The definition of political insanity is voting the same way over and over again and expecting a different result - VOTE REPUBLICAN FOR A NEW RIO GRANDE VALLEY.

But when Cascos and Garcia have unethical people like Cris Valadez, Montoya and Barton barking for them, they are left to use deception and disinformation.

For an Anglo is it that Barton has no command of the English language or does his personality compel him to just out right lie?

His post this morning defending Cris Valadez is classic Barton and a new low in surreal.  His claim is because Valadez was not prosecuted for the theft of electricity he was therefore cleared.  You see Barton expects you to just ignore what the BPUB official said on the news - see video previously posted by BV - THEY NEVER PROSECUTE AND ONLY SEEK RESTITUTION

The comment was as stupid as Saenz putting out a press release stating after he lost the Manuel Velez case - "no court has ever found Velez innocent"  It is a true statement, but what makes it stupid and deceptive is - no court would ever find anyone innocent - it is not a question asked.

Montoya claims that Magallanes' ad pointing out that the Court of Appeals affirmed Judge Limas ruling on the Statute of Frauds concerning a real estate deal was lame because it failed to deal with the fact the Court of Appeals had no knowledge the loan.  What is lame is Oscar X. Garcia's pathetic response.  Oscar X. Garcia seems to be saying that the Court of Appeals should ignore a legal concept created in 1677, if the judge had business dealings with a lawyer in the case.

Do you want a judge who will ignore a legal principal which is over 400 years old if he believes one of the lawyers in the case may be dishonest?  A ruling on a question of law has nothing to do with the conduct of the parties, it is based on the law. 

Any first week law student can tell you all real estate transactions must be in writing to be enforceable.  It is that simple - and Oscar X. Garcia wants this law which is over 400 years old negated. 

I hate people who throw mud and then cry foul when the mud is thrown back at them.

The Republicans had an easy win here - but they chose to go with stupidity and ignorance instead of a clean and simple campaign.

I have no idea who is going to win.  I did not vote yesterday because I am sickened by the entire election.  Oh, I will vote at some point during early voting, but not with a smile on my face.

MARY REY GETTING OUT THE VOTE



A SUBSTANTIVE CONVERSATION ABOUT DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLANTATION POLITICS

The Democrats really need to listen to this conversation. So too the Republicans - they are so busy catering to the Latinos, both Democrats and Republicans, they both fail to see that with the right message the Republicans can make significant headway into the Black community.

In Dallas the distrust between Blacks and Latinos is significant. There are those trying to heal the rift and those trying to make political fodder out of it. But the issue being raised in this discussion is very real.

CARLOS CASCOS CRY ME A RIVER



CARLOS CASCOS RESPONDS TO HIS CLAIMS OF IGNORANCE

Remember Cascos' boy toy remained loyal to Villalobos until the end. Further Cascos had full knowledge of Valadez's BPUB problems


PAT AHUMADA DEFENDS CRIS VALADEZ
 


Political ads are a funny thing. The ad featured here I missed until I heard about it - and I bought the paper expressly to review the ads.  Nothing in the ad stands out to tell me there is an ad.  Further, ads are scanned - not read.  You know why I highlight parts of my posts - to draw you back in.  For those who read this ad, it was a good ad - so too was Magallanes - except it was not wrtitten for how people read them - scanning - you must highlight the hot parts to draw people in.

Cesar's ad was very good, except he missed a good opportunity which was consistent with his theme.  He should have included the Herald correction as proof that Luci is simply telling lies and he is trying to run a campaign based on substance,
 
BUT THE CRY ME A RIVER RESPONSE BY CASCOS WAS LAUGHABLE

He and Garcia pay Montoya to trash their opponents and then they both cry foul when their opponents respond.

For years before Villalobos was indicted the blogs, more specifically the BV, covered in depth the Amit Livingston case, and the James Dannenbaum theft of more the $20 million from the port.  Apparently Cascos loves the game of denial of reality.  He has to be the only person in Brownsville who knew nothing of Valadez's problems with the BPUB, Villalobos, and Dannenbaum. 

Why is Cascos dead silent on Saenz's refusal to prosecute Oscar de la Fuente?  Is he also ignorant of that?  When the bloggers covered the problems in the Elections office, what did Cascos do?, he called us in to run cover for Roger Ortiz instead of addressing the problems

The problem with Cascos is he remained silent - he did not lead - his own administrative assistant Cris Valadez stood with Villalobos until the end.  Cascos is either an idiot or liar - you decide - but either way he is not fit to lead.
 
LAWYER NEEDED FOR GENDER DISCRIMINATION CASE
 
I know someone who needs a gender discrimination lawyer.  The civil rights enforcement division of the TWC issued a bizarre ruling.  They agreed that the major corporate employer never denied the sworn to claim, but because the employer would not admit to the claim she failed to prove her claim. 
 
She could not get access to their records, so how was she to prove the claim using the corporation records.  I have coworkers who if subpoenaed will verify the claim.

PAT AHUMADA DEFENDS CRIS VALADEZ ON BPUB INCIDENT

Pat's defense is the same old same old - a conspiracy to destroy Cris Valadez - remember how Cris blamed his wife for not knowing they were not receiving an electric bill - remember how Pat Ahumada blamed the female teller for the check problem - well at least until a video tape showed otherwise. You see a pattern between Cris and Pat - when you break the law find a woman to blame.
 
CESAR V. LUCI - A READER'S REPORT CARD
 



BLUE SKIES
 
THIS MORNING THE SUPREME COURT FOR NOW AGREED TO ALLOW THE TEXAS VOTER ID LAW TO REMAIN IN PLACE
 
This morning the Supreme Court allowed the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Stay Order which blocked the trial court's order holding Texas Voter ID law unconstitutional , to remain in place.  This means you better have your valid ID with you when you go and vote.
 
I have mixed feelings about his.  Texas did make a concerted effort to help people obtain valid ID's.  Those opposed to the ID's have had 3 years to help the at risk voters get ID's.
 
BUT HERE IS MY PROBLEM
 
Without law, we have nothing - our society becomes a place where law is merely a political weapon to accomplish an agenda.  When the law becomes a political weapon, the law becomes arbitrary.  This is not good.
 
Chief Justice Rehnquist was known for enforcing the Rule concerning a stay pending appeal.  The Roberts Court abolished that Rule in favor of the "flights of fancy" of the individual justices on any given day.
 
We have conflicting Stays from the Supreme Court concerning marriage equality and Voter ID.  How can this be good?  There is no explanation for their actions.
 
The good news - if you have a loved one at an adult day care, ask them to leave their ID at home during early voting - that will end the problem.
