IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

National Kite Flying Day is today. It's also National Boy Scout Day. I miss our flag deal­čśĽ

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Saturday, February 11th, 8AM til 11AM It’s On!  Ready or not it’s time to kick off the 2017 season of fun with the 14th annual ManCake Breakfast! Men it’s that time, so drop the remote, grab your favorite spatula and I’ll provide the aprons. Saturday the 11th is Mancake time! To all you newcomers on our little pile of mud, ManCakes is when the guys treat the gals to breakfast and a cleanup. We’ll have a little something extra for the ladies and it rhymes with Himosas’. For the paltry fee of $3 (little kids) and $5 (big kids) you will be treated to the pancakes of your choice, Regular, Chocolate Chip, Pecan or Blueberry, bacon or sausage and a variety of beverages. Ladies all you have to do is show up and be catered to. We’ll do the rest. 

Seriously CNN? 6 headlines about Fake-a-hontas being silenced? Silenced? Your 6 headlines are hardly silence. How about save your electrons and just say she broke the rules and had her mic dropped for her. Somebody had to close her lying pie hole.

Short and sweet is a good description of last nights Council meeting. 
Councilwoman Bailey gave a shout out to the Islander staff. Having been involved with that task for years, inside and out I will echo the well deserved kudos to that unsung staff. Bravo Zulu.
Councilwoman Hoerner reminded the room about ManCakes and the BBQ Cook-Off. 

Any wanna be web developers out there? Students? Anyone? The Club is in need of one. The pay sucks but the experience is priceless.

I agree with you on the silencing of Warren. And the irony is that she was attempting to read a letter that was 31 years old. Isn't one of the Democratic Party's doctrines that all people are fixable and deserve a second chance? Can Sessions not change after all this time even though he is not in their party? Their hypocrisy already lost them the recent election and now they just continue on with it. That is good news for all of us.

And then she decided to go her own route - Facebook Live!!! Hilarious. I guess that is part of their new communication plan to take back the White House.

Carry on! Geniuses....

How can a confirmation hearing be thorough and fair if negative remarks and evidence are censored, only allowing positives? Creeping authoritarianism.

btw, genius, facebook live will get exponentially more views than c-span. Also, not sure where you got the doctrine thing, but part of the Democratic platform is fighting racism and guaranteeing civil rights, which is why they want to keep Sessions out of the administration.

And it is just another in the long lost of fights the Dems will lose.

She was not censored - she broke the rules, end of story. You would think that someone who had made a career of sucking on the public's tit would know the rules.

And have you seen her poll numbers? She is in trouble in 2018, trust me.

And bored? Hardly. These are the most exciting times we have had in 8 years. I am loving it.

You're critical of Facebook Live and your president's only authentic communication comes from Twitter?

Democracy should allow for difference of opinion to be stated.

Yours isn't always the best one.

“No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”
That's the rule she broke. No senator can say bad things about another senator. I guarantee you that if someone were speaking ill of Warren, that you would go to Fox news and wait for direction and then run around saying, "well, she deserves it!".
You talk about term limits and throwing the bums out, but you support a rule that prohibits senators from saying that other senator is a dickhead?
You're falling for it. They're all idiots, but you shouldn't pick on the smart ones that are telling us specifically that they're all idiots. Warren is pretty powerful and becoming more so. There's your threat

She broke the rules. That is a fact. Accountability is something this country has sorely been lacking for the last 8 years.

Warren is pretty powerful? That is an gross overstatement. She will likely not make another term. She is so far left she would not stand a chance. Why do you think Hillary passed on her for VP?
