There is an older post here on our Tip of Texas Tea Party website about KURV’s Ray Coughenour.

Many now refuse to call him “Col. Ray” because he is using his military rank for entertainment value. The man is retired but still wants to be called Kernel, ahem, I mean, Colonel Ray.

(By A Concerned Citizen)

Whether it’s local, state or national news, KURV is a great Valley source for news. It doesn’t matter whether it’s on the web or on the radio. It’s a welcome relief from living a blue sea.

For as much as local Tea Partiers depend on it, I can’t imagine why we continue to put with Ray Coughenour.

It’s almost a requirement to refer to the man as “Col. Ray”. Local, state, and national politicians and pundits call him that when they call in. He gets more use out of a military rank than Private James Ryan.

It’s hard to get comfortable with a man that refuses to use his last name. Listeners used to see his last name when he first arrived in the Rio Grande Valley. Now all we see is “Col. Ray”. Read the rest of this entry »

  • Supporter to Obama: 'Announce a State of Emergency' To Get Around GOP Congress September 1, 2014
    In 2014, President Obama has made much of his pen-and-a-phone strategy to accomplish his goals in the face of what he calls an "unprecedented pattern of obstruction" from Republicans in Congress. Apparently the president's supporters are on board with the idea of unilateral executive action. At a meeting last Friday, a supporter of the preside […]

  • Nine Days, Mr. President September 2, 2014
    Well thank goodness. Naked and semi-naked pictures of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence have been put online by hackers who hacked the celebrities’ online accounts. No doubt the very same hackers celebrate Edward Snowden and hate the NSA snooping. The upside of the celebrity nudity being put online is that the White House staff can rest easy. They will have […]

  • Will the African-American vote save troubled Democratic Senate incumbents? September 2, 2014
    Michael Barone is… dubious. It’s apparent that even the most vigorous black turnout effort in the eight states [of thirteen with contested Senate races, including Georgia and Kentucky] with low black percentages is not going to make much difference. Democrats there must hope that their candidates can maintain levels of support from whites at or above the lev […]

  • The Clinton Machine September 2, 2014
    Ben Domenech, one of our illustrious founders, has a great piece at Commentary about the Clinton machine being alive. It is worth reading for a number of reasons, but most especially may be this. History may ultimately consider Obama’s 2008 nomination as a representation not of progressivism’s resurgent appeal, but as its death rattle—a speed bump along the […]
