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 »

  • When You Go Shopping, What Political Policies Are You Funding? August 29, 2014
    Conservatives live in a world that is often set against them. Whether it is marriage, gun rights, abortion, or any other issue that conservatives have a stake in, a rather loud part of the culture and government are there as a stumbling block.

  • We Are At War With ISIS And They Are A Real, Sophisticated, Threat August 29, 2014
    Despite comments to the contrary by the White House spokesman, we are at war with ISIS and they are a real and sophisticated threat. The intentions of the Islamic State have been made crystal clear: kill the infidel and establish the caliphate by any means necessary.

  • Race: A Conservative View August 29, 2014
    The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, ought to cause us to pause and reflect on the issue of race in America.

It is a conversation we have needed to have for decades, and it | Read More […]
