The chart of the day
This illustration, courtesy of Mark Perry, captures the incredible production out of “Saudi Texas” (Mark Perry’s terminology) in recent years. For the fourth straight month, oil drillers in Texas have pumped out more than 3 million barrels every day. The fifth and sixth months ago were also just about 3 million barrels every day too. August marked the highest daily output since at least 1981. Look at the trend, too; Texas is now going on 40 consecutive months of increases.
“For oil output in Texas to increase from 2 million to more than 3 million (barrels per day) in less than two years, and increase so dramatically that the state now produces almost 37% of U.S. oil, is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable energy success stories in U.S. history — and it’s just getting started.” Perry said. The way things are headed, Texas could soon surpass Iraq, Iran and even Canada to become the world’s fifth biggest oil producer by next year, Perry predicted.
And just as remarkable, Texas has accomplished this with Barack Obama in the White House and the Democrats controlling the US Senate. Just think what could be the results with Republicans controlling the US Senate and a Republican in the White House. Go VOTE Republican and do your part!
I remember when I was a bailiff and this guy was in court being arraigned on a theft charge at JC Penney’s. I brought him in from our holding cell to face the judge and myself and the judge could smell alcohol…The judge called me up to his chair and said he was going to call for a couple more courts officers because he thought there could be some excitement and he was right….well before backup could arrive this idiot started arguing really loud with me why there was a recess. I told him he better just knock it off or the judge was going to cite him for contempt….That’s exactly what the judge did, he cited him 10 days,,,then he laughed and called the judge a looser which he got another 30 more days. Then the judge asked him if he was finished with his outbursts and at that he dropped an “F-Bomb” on me and the judge, which got him 90 more days and remanded him immediately to jail……..
In this video for cost, security and the protection of everyone in the courtroom they now do VIDEO ARRAIGNMENTS right from the jail…..Papa Mike

This is a Democrat who’s party claims to be the champions of peoples rights and always concerned about the “Children” of the world.
It concerns me how our lawmakers are just out for themselves and not the people they represent, Or even their own families, anymore.
CAIR practically begging DIMocrats to let them join their club.
(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 10/31/14) — On Sunday, November 2, representatives of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) will join a community-wide protest of the racist team name of the Washington Redskins.
The protest is organized by the National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Media. Protestors will gather at 8:30 a.m. at the University of Minnesota Northrop Plaza.
In June, CAIR applauded a decision by the United States Patent and Trademark Office to cancel the Washington football team’s trademark of its name because the use of the ethnic slur is “disparaging to Native Americans.”
“We have an obligation to condemn all racist slurs and make it clear that they do not represent Minnesotans or our values,” said CAIR-MN Executive Director Lori Saroya.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is being attacked anonymously by senior Obama administration officials because he stands up for Israel’s security.
“I am being attacked because I am willing to defend the state of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a speech Wednesday to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. “The easy thing to do is to compromise when there is pressure.”
Israeli officials from the president on down have voiced dismay at insults attributed to Obama administration officials who called Netanyahu a “chickens**t” and a “coward,” among other insults, according to the Atlantic in a piece published Tuesday.
“The safety of Israel is not important to those who attack me anonymously and personally,” Netanyahu said. “They’re attacking me because I stand for our safety and our security interests.”
Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, a leading political rival of Netanyahu’s, came to the prime minister’s defense Tuesday night, accusing Obam of “throwing Israel under the bus.”
