    If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. Somehow it’s Un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections are good. It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it's an impeachable offense if the President inquires about it. Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote. People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. This after 250,000 white union soldiers died to free the slaves and the subsequent freed slaves had already been given 40 acres and a mule to stimulate their life of freedom. Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing conservative people in restaurants is virtuous. People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for useless degrees. Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated. Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate Central-American gang-banger who jumps the southern fence is welcome. $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for 'free' health care is not. If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free. People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, and it seems like a great plan to us. Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now. Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights. And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!

    Is this true? End of an Era at WO-S

    It is a little more than that. I had a chance to get this from a friend. It is the poem that gave rise to the Chain Gang: "I wear a link around my neck A simple reminder to me Of the fact that I am a team member No matter where I may be. That small link is not magic Nor is it a good luck charm It isn't meant to protect me From every physical harm. It's simply an understanding Between my teammates and me. When I look down at my chest And the silver oval I do see I know it's there to remind me Of what team member should be. It links me to the team. It links me to the school. It is a constant reminder That there is no place for a fool. So I wear this link around my neck To remind me many a time That a man without conviction Isn't worth a simple dime." The Chain Gang, as it was used in the defensive unit at West Orange-Stark High School, was a phrase of brotherhood and unity. I have seen several on social media during this time of strife indicate that the best solution of unity can be found in a high school football locker room. Rather than doing that, the WO-C CISD decided to toss a hand grenade in it. That is what bothers me most of all. Although, as I stated previously, I remain confident that Mustang defense will be the same whether you call them the Chain Gang, the Blue Link or the Pink Vaginas, a very small part of me wonders what effect this episode will have when the Mustangs hit the field.

    Systemic Racism

    Systemic racism - a phrase that is used every day on the news. In a condensed definition it means racism that is part of a system that is both taught, implied and repeated. By watching everything that is going on and all the angles covered by the news reporters one might think that all law enforcement suffers from this “systemic racism.” Does an entire system suffer from this, do a large majority of police officers, sheriff’s deputies, state troopers all subscribe to this? My family has a long and storied history in law enforcement. My great grandfather was killed as a Beaumont Police Officer in 1925. My dad was an officer for Beaumont PD in the 70’s during the tumultuous times after Vietnam. My uncle served on the force during the 70’s. I served for over 27 years, with the last 23 for Beaumont PD - the final 15 as a supervisor. My brother and two of my sons still serve with the Beaumont Police Department. I say all this to show that I have literally been raised in the culture of Beaumont PD. If anyone should have inside knowledge of the system aspect of systemic racism - surely I can shed some light on it. One day in the late 70’s my dad told mom that she needed to bring me to the station. I pestered the fire out of him asking what was going on and he wouldn’t budge. Mom loaded my sister and I up in the station wagon and drove us downtown. As we got out of the car at the library and walked across the street to the department I saw my dad. As a boy around ten my dad was still (and always was) my hero. There were numerous people around the front steps and tv cameras everywhere. About this time I saw one of my other heroes, and the reason dad wanted me there. As I ran toward Tony Dorsett someone yelled “Cut - who is this kid?” Tony was there in the late 70’s to film a recruiting commercial to try and attract more minorities into the department. This was over 40+ years ago and Beaumont PD was attempting to bring more diversity into the department. Systemic racism at play? When I started law enforcement in 1993, I came out of four years in the military. Every two years every officer was required to have on-going and continuing training. This is a state-wide mandate, and certain courses are required to continue working as an active officer. Every two year cycle for close to twenty years was a course in cultural sensitivity. Racism, cultural generalizations, stereotypes and a host of other racially sensitive issues were talked about and explored. Systemic racism taught at the academy? What is it that has everyone up in arms around the country? Are the police seriously racist at heart? Could it be that a nation-wide scare of plague-caliber illness, unemployment and a host of other unassociated items have been a festering keg of dynamite that was ignited by a video? Look you’ll not get me to side with the Minneapolis officer. My personal opinion is that even if he had resisted you get them up as soon as you can. If that officer lost control and it happens, a partner should have stepped in and taken control. This officer should be afforded due process. If it is proven what everyone assumes then he’ll pay the price the law mandates. There is no vast conspiracy against minorities. Let me leave you with this, I worked every day that I was on the streets in a majority minority area of town. I have experienced and been on almost every type of call imaginable. I have seen many things I’ll never be able to unsee, but I never lost my faith. I always tried to treat every call like it was my family on the other end of the phone. Have I seen bad officers with bad hearts - yes. But interestingly enough those officers didn’t seem to make it long. We are out there every day doing the best job we can. Systemic racism might exist somewhere but it doesn’t exist at BPD. This coming from a man raised in the culture and that worked his entire career for a department that is out there for you.

    Father's Day

    Happy Fathers Day to all of you. If you’re New at it, here’s a little advise I wish now I’d listen too. Don’t overdo anything that takes you away from your family when your kids are growing up. Play golf, but not to much. Go fishing, but not to much. Moderation. Raising your kids is the most important job you’ll ever do.

    Defund, or abolish?

    No, they would not. It doesn’t work like that. They have age requirements, different standards, different academies, different laws and so on. You can’t just transfer to another agency. I saw a guy on a Facebook forum (when they thought that Minneapolis was about to lay off all officers) say that there was no big deal because that state and county would just take their place. Okay, Minneapolis loses 800 officers. So the state has 800 troopers sitting around waiting for something to do? Nope.... I looked up MN state police and they have only 591 troopers in the entire state. Do they could completely strip the entire state and cover just over half of ONE city? The county had very few actual street cops but mostlt runs the county jail (which is pretty much the standard). ...,,and again, that is one city. The federal government has completely different laws. They enforce the US Code and state/county/local police enforce their state Penal Code... which are all different. It would be like if all doctors quit, couldn’t veterinary assistants take their place? They are both in medical fields. Then.... let’s assume that you could simply have the state police hire all local officers immediately and forget all of the stuff I just mentioned. You would have the exact same officers patrolling the exact same streets but now the city council who is mad at then would have no control at all over them. All that would do is to stop their own authority and have another government have complete control over the same area that you used to control. To say this isn’t well thought out (by people calling for it) might be the understatement of all time.

    Let's be honest.... there's Mid County Madness and then everybody else. Attendance is a big part of it. When tickets can't be had and every seat is filled..... You know the crowd is 100% pumped on both sides of the field. Relative parity is important, too. The fact that the series is relatively close and the fact that you can throw the current season records out the window at kickoff because it's anybody's game.

    Vidor vs Silsbee

    Yea we gave the Nederland game away late and the PNG game too for that matter. The scrimmage with Silsbee last year was just about a stalemate, I think Vidor had a slim lead until the backups got in. Our defense played great last year but wore down late in several games when the offense struggled to keep the ball moving. You should see a completely different offense if things work out with the new/old QB coming back and the defense has returners at all key positions except linebacker, we lost some good'ns. But I'm telling you right here, right now... the key to this game will be, PHYSICAL SPEED!

    Is this true? End of an Era at WO-S

    He probably thinks.....and I imagine that Cornel Thompson thinks the same......that they don't give a rat's rear end of what their defense is called. As long as they work, they hit and they pursue. As far as your suggestion, no, no and no. I am going to treat the WO-C CISD changing the name of the Mustang defense the same as I did when Beaumont ISD named their football stadium the Carroll A. "Butch" Thomas Educational Support Center and when they changed it Beaumont ISD Memorial Stadium. I will abide by the actions of a duly selected board of trustees' decision even though I may not agree with it. I have seen enough opinions of folks I grew up with and have respect for who have a beef with the name. While I disagree that they should, the angst is widespread enough as to indicate that it is not just the view of a loud few. So, in official written content, I will not refer to the Mustang defense as "The Chain Gang" choosing probably just to refer to the Mustang defense as simply that, the Mustang defense. For as Shakespeare once wrote; "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet..." And that which we call a Mustang defense by any other name is just as nasty.

    I do love the fact that African American history will be incorporated. I love this move and have always wished that this was a part of studies when I was in school. Pretty horrible you had to learn about these things as a grown man. I know this part of it is political and not about sports, just felt like this needed to be said. But if anyone feels like it should be taken down for a topic to be started in the political forum, I can do that.

    It truly is sad that the highest electable office we have in this country we are given two (2) candidates to choose from. The selection was made ever so easy when one candidate was named Hillary. It is still made very easy in 2020 when the other one is named Joe. I don’t wave a Trump flag in my yard and I disagree with a lot of stuff he does. You can post one-hundred more threads stating the same premise but Donald Trump is still the hands-down selection for our house. Look at the democratic platform, democratic-led states and cities and look at their candidate; I’ll pass.

    Haynes no longer HFC at Hardin

    Well, that is a bit of news to me. Then he must some have some person who answered his email accounts for him as he has typed out the answers to the annual preview questionnaires that I sent him. And, to me anyway, he has been very complimentary and thanked us for what we do for local high school sports........including just a couple of weeks before he was dismissed. There may be issues in Hardin ISD, but this site it not the root of them.

My opinion, take it or leave it, just trying to help.

    A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging the washing outside. "That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looked on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbor hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments. A month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, "Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?" The husband replied, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows." And so it is with life… What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look. So don’t be too quick to judge others, especially if your perspective of life is clouded by anger, jealousy, negativity or unfulfilled desires. "Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are."

    That defense over the years has made most offense’s earn every chain link they could get. They have had some of the nastiest defenses I’ve ever seen in High School Football over the years. I’ve always thought of the Chain Gang as a very Stingy Defense. Meaning not giving up many chain links to the offense. Sad to see it changed. How ridiculous!
