Fishing was non-existent around the Galveston area Sunday, as moderate northerly winds and rain prevailed all day. Tuesday and Wednesday look the best for fishing this week, as the rain is forecast to be out of here and light winds taking over.
And so the clown show continues. For those Trump supporters still trying to convince me (or themselves) that Trump was just putting on a show and that Steve Bannon is an “economic nationalist” not a white supremacist I beg to differ. Feel free to refer to the barrage of tweets and retweets on everything from “Saturday Night Live” sketches to flag burning for a representative sample of the president-elect’s policy statements to the nation.
The Constitution gives Congress the responsibility for funding the federal government and the president the veto pen. Without congressional action the government shuts down. Since our Aug. 22 report there’s been a little progress on the 12 spending bills. But with the government facing yet another shutdown; Congress will need to act by Friday.
Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote that “The world will be saved by beauty,” which leads us to ask two rhetorical questions: first, does this mean that the world is lost and, second, is ugliness to blame for its condition? Rhetorical questions require no answer, but what we can see for ourselves is that in their multiple forms — artistic, personal and moral — beauty and ugliness contend for cultural supremacy. Today the general consensus among humanistic thinkers is that a “cult of ugliness” prevails.

Mr. Buzbee has to regroup, in an effort to recoup the money he put up to file this lawsuit behalf of 48k deadbeats. No billable hours has to be quite upsetting to his contraband cigars, yacht & exotic car collection.Oct 10, 2013
The Army is here conducting "urban warfare" training? This is very interesting to me especially since the federal government want to disarm it's citizens and Washington can't wait to get their greedy hands on the state of Texas' budget surplus. What kind of warfare could they be preparing for?Jan 30, 2013
Forgive me for correcting, but, I think you mean "Hitchcock & TC should be prepared for mass influx". That might sound like an easy fix to the unhappy LMISD parents but, I do believe there are certain restrictions for the number of out of district students allowed, in TC anyway. And photo ID from the parent/guardian is required to register. How about the parents & taxpayers start showing up in droves to protest the massive incompetence that may end up putting this district in receivership, which would probably be the best that could happen. Your child's education and your money are both being wasted, fight back! Jan 24, 2013
Who trusts the NY Times and or CBS news and their "polls"? Who trusts main stream alphabet news outlets period? I just read where the CBS news political director is openly encouraging the Obama administration to destroy the Republican party so it can transform American politics. Though that news would never be printed in the GDN as it's in lock step, pardon the pun, with this sentiment. Jan 20, 2013
I pity anybody living in LMISD, if your children are attending they're getting a third rate education and if your tax dollars are going to support it then you're throwing your money away. After last nights, "we managed to save the world" cliffhanging theater BS, the whole country will resemble LMISD before very long. get used to it we're screwed by the incompetents we've allowed to be in charge, the looters & moochers full of blame & excuses.Jan 1, 2013
