Let’s Cut The Crap on Ferguson

Big Red Car here, y’all. Beautiful Thanksgiving in the ATX and why not? We’ve got a lot to be thankful in Texas and, in particular, Austin.

Not so much in Ferguson, so today, let’s cut the crap on Ferguson and discuss a few hard truths. What say you?

The Big Red Car says: “Let’s put our worse angels on the unemployment line for a change. Let’s deal with reality and fix this thing.” Continue reading


Love, Hate, Indifference

Big Red Car here, y’all, warming up for some Thanksgiving. Please pass the Big Red Car a drumstick, y’all. Ahh, now that’s good with a side of 10W40.
