Years from now.

When a movie is made, who would you cast in the main rolls. Pick anyone, living or dead and we will have a few laughs

Here are a few of my picks:
Donald Trump - Rodney Dangerfield would have been great
Jarrad Kushner - Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper)
Ivanka - Reese Witherspoon maybe

Who else?

Dumbest political name-calling ever

Dumbest political name-calling ever:

Ted Cruz called Beto O'Rourke a triple meat Whataburger liberal.

Harris County jury returns verdict for husband of fired deputy in diner choking case

Source: Houston Chronicle

A Harris County jury Monday convicted the husband of a former county deputy of murder in the high-profile death of a young Houston father who was fatally choked at a Crosby-area Denny’s.

Terry Thompson, 42, who faces up to life in prison, was convicted of murdering 24-year-old John Hernandez last year after placing him a chokehold that left him brain dead.

Jurors spent 12 hours deliberating Thompson's guilt, and rejected his defense team's contention he was acting in self-defense. They deliberated seven hours Friday and returned Monday morning to continue.

It is the second time the notorious case has gone to trial. In June, the first trial ended in a mistrial after a hung jury was unable to reach a verdict

Finally, this case begged for justice. The victim was 5'7" and weighed 127 pounds. The murderer was a bodybuilder and weighed at least 250 lbs.

Harris County, Texas Dirty Trick

I went to the Harris County, TX voter information website - harrisvotes.org to try to find a friend's precinct so he could go vote on Tuesday and they have redesigned the website right before the election and I am unable to find where they have put the list of Precincts Locations.

This seems like an awful convenient way to suppress the election day vote. I tried to call Harris County Democratic Party and got a message that they were either closed or busy working to get Democrats elected. They suggested I send an email or call tomorrow. I guess I'll send an email.

I did find the address, but had to try several different links - one of which had the same information on Election Day as they had under Early Voting.

My MAGA encounter last night

I drive Uber to supplement my other job. I picked up a guy in a nice area in Houston's Spring Branch neighborhood. He was going about 8 miles to the Greenway Plaza area to a bar called Kirby Icehouse.

I generally have my radio on Houston Public Radio which is an NPR station. There was a segment on where they were talking about malnutrition in Gaza, I think. He asked me what I was listening to and I said Houston Public Radio and he said "Well, it sounds like some Muslim propaganda". I was taken aback that he would say that and I said. "I don't need your opinion about what I'm listening to, do you want me to change it". He said yes and I changed it to a rock station.

We got to our exit and then we turned on Westheimer and got stopped at the train and it was a really long train, and then another train in the opposite direction. It seemed like forever. I had right away changed the subject but it was awkward and after the train left I just couldn't keep from saying. "Can I give you a suggestion?" He said yes and I said "Next time you ride Uber, you don't have to give me your racist opinion of what I'm listening to. Just ask to change the channel."

He said "Well, I don't want to listen to your opinions either"

I said "Fine, then just say 'Could we please turn the radio to something else?' "

Then he said "Well, I'm paying you."

That's where I said "Not anymore. I want you out of my car."

I pulled over real quick and he said "I don't want to ride with you either. I'm reporting you. MAGA" and slammed the door.

I called Uber right away and reported the incident. I made sure that I told them that the guy said "Muslim propaganda" The guy I talked to had an foreign accent so he very well could have been a Muslim. He said that he didn't think I did anything wrong since I've been driving for Uber and have a good rating and over 2000 rides. It shook me up a little so I used the next half-hour or so to go get more gas and eat a cookie.

Something I noticed about the CNN O'Rourke-Cruz poll

Here is a link to the left of the poll metrics.


In there it says:

Crosstabs on the following pages only include results for subgroups with enough unweighted cases to produce a
sampling error of +/-8.5 percentage points or less once adjusted for design effect. Some subgroups represent too
small a share of the state population to produce crosstabs with an acceptable sampling error. Interviews were
conducted among these subgroups, but results for groups with a design-effect adjusted sampling error larger than
+/-8.5 percentage points are not displayed and instead are denoted with "N/A".

When I looked at a breakdown by age, it had N/A for the age groups 18-34 and 35-49, so basically they didn't sample enough 18-49 year olds to get an acceptable sampling error. Seems that the poll is pretty skewed to older voters and may be just a load of crap.
