TEXAS SOUTHMOST COLLEGE - TIME FOR ITS REBIRTH

BUT FIRST A REALITY CHECK - NOW CALM DOWN

It is what makes America - we challenge one another - we accuse each other of bogus speech and ideas - this is a time honored tradition - only someone with no conceptualization of who we are would make a statement so stupid that the blogs should work together. I am not so arrogant as to presume I am right and everyone should agree with the BV and just get in line - Brownsville would thrive if it could add a few more blogs with diverse opinions. The BV has stated over and over again - its best readers consider my works and evidence and then use their critical thinking skills and decide. If a reader decides the BV is wrong - cool - just do it using critical thinking skills. God would I hate if we had to live in a get along world with no diversity of ideas.

Chris Davis and I on BISD proved two people who normally would not agree on the time of day can work together to accomplish something good - Chris, if my readers remember spent his own money and used his own time to put BISD meetings on the internet so that more people can watch the live coverage. Does this mean Chris and I will all of a sudden work together on everything no - it means we saw a need to cooperate and we did - people need to grow up and understand how life and politics really work.

A COMPLEMENT TO MCHALE - I hate posters who say "why are you not investigating this or that" This morning McHale gave the poster the perfect answer "since you have the inside information then do the story yourself." You know guys as bloggers we are not paid and in fact I can say in the case of the BV it loses money every month. No one gives me money to do the research I do- a lot of it is not free. So to everyone who things any blogger is not covering enough of this or that - hey - start a blog - build it - work your ass off going to meetings and introducing your blog to the community and business leaders - and then you will know what it is like. I spent two years going to meetings I hated - But that was the only way I knew to get the business community and political readership to read my blog and it worked.

MONTOYA - This guy is a lost sole. (you cannot be a lost soul if you have none - I meant sole) Lehmann loses his control of contracts at the Brownsville housing authority and Montoya calls it a conspiracy by Ahumada - Montoya called it a little nothing when the BV exposed the million dollar contract Rendon and Lehmann gave to Escobedo's brother 15 days before Escobedo voted to reinstate Rendon.

Montoya stands for overcrowding in our schools. Presas-Garcia, Longoria and Saavedra are complete failures. He cannot accept his so he has to keep on blaming Zayas and Cortez - just because economic hard times have hit the entire country does not mean classroom overcrowding is a good thing. Whether it is in the Fall or a year from now the new elementary school will be filled with students preventing overcrowding elsewhere. Overcrowding limits the ability of children to learn. It takes vision to build new schools when the funds are available. Brownsville is growing - if BISD is going to meet its demands it must keep on building. Otherwise we will end up like so many other school districts with classrooms so overfilled with students learning cannot occur.

Ah, Ernie Hernandez - funny thing with Montoya on this one - when Ernie was paying him Ernie was the hero of humanity - he dismissed the use of politiqueras stealing mail ballots as the way business is done here and we should get over it. Now Ernie refuses to pay him and every one Montoya does not like is accused of being an Ernie lemming.

I hate nothing more than anything else when people use this stupid tactic - so and so is a lemming of the devil. My readers know how I feel about forming their own opinion - the BV is just a place people go to help them form that opinion. Anyone who votes based on claims any candidate is a lemming of Ernie deserves the bad results Brownsville always gets.

We can look to known facts and form an opinion on the known facts. Rick Longoria and Edward Camarillo knowingly worked with a convicted felon and two-bit con artist for months. This is evidence of poor judgment. Now being a convicted felon by itself is not a bad thing if the evidence shows they have reformed themselves. During the BISD election Longoria and Camarillo received repeated requests from the BV to denounce the lies by Quintanilla and the PAC and to come to the defense of BISD - they knew exactly who Quintanilla was - they knew of the cons he was pulling in Dallas and his endless judgments,  they knew he was not a reformed convicted felon - but yet they worked with him anyway.  What makes any intelligent person thing that if they were willing to work with Quinanilla once they will not work with people like him in the future if reelected?  They showed their ways and judgment and now they must be held accountable for that poor judgment.

It boggles my mind that there are people who know this and will still support both of these people for reelection. This is why Brownsville is the cesspool of politics it is - intelligent people cannot form a simple opinion - Longoria and Camarillo showed a complete and total lack of respect for Brownsville and amazingly poor judgment by working with Quintanilla and to some people this is not a basis to remove them from office.

The fact both voted to allow BPUB to raise your rates and impose hirer late fees on the poorest of the poor so that the COB could raid the BPUB means nothing to these same people who will continue to support Longoria and Camarillo. Facts of poor judgment and facts of a bad voting records will not persuade them - why? they are lemmings to the idea that if they like someone reality should not guide them - facts and reality should be systematically ignored and anyone who dislikes Longoria or Camarillo is paranoid - exactly what Quintanilla would say - rather than address head on their voting records and bad judgment you call their opponent paranoid - pathetic and why Brownsville is the cesspool of politics it is.

WELL GUYS - GOT LONG - TSC TOMORROW

On the DA issue of who appointes in case of a vacancy - guy your information means something to me - I am working on it - Monday in SA messed me up for two days - but you have given me cause to believe maybe in Cameron county because of a quirk in how the DA's office came about the commissioners court may do the appointment - I will not stop the research until a get a clear answer.

While everyone was dealing with the airline issue, BISD board was voting on Compass vs Wells Fargo. CALABAZAS! He is not going anywhere as long as he owns politicians.

Please explain why Wells Fargo would be better. They go out for proposals and go with the best rates. They have been with Compass since before it was Compass.

Compass bank is worthless, ever since it changed and is owned by Spain. Their rates are some of the poorest out there.

I know nothing about the current Compass bank or its rates, but the previous bank was truly worthless -I pulled $50,000 out of the bank hen they left me at the car dealership and went home without calling me to tell me if the loan was approved - the loan officer forgot to submit the application - GMAC gave me credit on the spot and I bought my truck -

I have rejected several comments by Quintanilla playing games tha the heard this and heard that about Pan Am - when the full facts come out they will be reported by every regular knows the BV is not where you go to publish your BS speculation. BEDC will need to do its Due Diligence before the city does anything - the public needs to scrutinize the Due Diligence process to make sure it is done properly - if the numbers are there then we mover forward - if they are not then we let it go.
