So it apparently is just a reference to the 'wild west' and it means chaotic, but you know what? I never signed anything agreeing to Norwegian slang conventions. I do whatever I want.
We used to call blue jeans "Texas pants" back in the olden days. Because that's what the cowboys in Texas wore. :unnod:

One Texas Congressional politician flames the other. Pretty hilarious. Here's the backstory.

The congressman is targeting a June 4 study by federal researchers that refutes the so-called "hiatus" in global warming. The hiatus theory—favored by climate denialists—argues warming has paused or slowed since 1998. The study was led by Tom Karl, director of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, and published in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

Since July, Smith has sent NOAA letters and subpoenas asking the agency to provide "all documents and communications" related to the study. NOAA has refused to comply with Smith's requests for emails, citing the importance of confidentiality among scientists.
The PDF is the actual missive. She is not amused.

Oh, hey, they arrested another terrorist in Texas.

It’s the “clock kid” all over again: A 12-year-old Sikh boy is the latest victim of racist terrorism paranoia - Salon.com

And by terrorist, I mean a radical Muslim with a bomb. And by Muslim, I mean Sikh, and by radical, I mean a twelve year old with a heart condition, and by bomb, I mean solar charging backpack. And by arrested, I mean literally arrested and detained for several days without notifying his parents.

There may well be more to the story than what they're telling, but I'm having a hard time imagining anything that would mitigate it.

In order to receive hurricane relief, Texas town requires residents to reject Israel boycott

But applicants, still reeling from the devastation of lost life and property, have found they are now subject to a political litmus test (and a particularly subjective one at that) in order to receive the donated funds.

Titled “Verification not to Boycott Israel,” section 11 of the relief grant application stipulates: “By executing this Agreement below, the Applicant verifies that the Applicant: (1) does not boycott Israel; and (2) will not boycott Israel during the term of this Agreement.”
Who could have predicted that singling out a particular political position for official disapprobation could possibly lead to something like this?
