$0.99 Per Gallon Gas Arrives In Texas


We all knew this day was coming, but I did not think it would happen so fast. KHOU-TV in Houston posted this picture today showing one place there where gas is being sold for less the $1 per gallon. It's at a Shell station located at Woerner and Kuykendahl. I wonder how low gas prices will get before they start going back up again?

Texan Ted Cruz In The White House?


Many of the pundits, who I usually pay no attention to, have declared Senator Ted Cruz from Texas the winner of last night's debate. Do you agree? While I believe Cruz debated well, I have learned to wait until the polls come out in a few days before I declare anyone the winner of a debate when Donald Trump is in the room.

The problem with media elites is they only look at a two hour debate in small sound-bites and then judge quickly who won and lost. If the only thing that matter was a scorecard of who had the best one liners in a presidential debate the whole country would be in serious trouble. Only 8-years ago a Texan by the name of George W. Bush was the President of the United States and it appears right now that Cruz might just follow in his footsteps.
