“(People) through their elected officials clearly send the message of their comfort with the amount of oversight.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Monday that spending more money on inspections would not have prevented the deadly explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. plant that was last investigated by Texas environmental regulators in 2006. (cont)

“The piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The Second Amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president… As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry
That’s Governor Goodhair… I remember when we were having our drought and he asked us all to pray for rain and then, President Obama came into town and it rained. Perry has never mentioned that might have been a sign from God or thanked Obama for helping God to answer our prayers, but see, it’s more likely that Governor Goodhair would have blamed Obama for the traffic accidents that occurred (and are inevitable) during and after the rain storms.

…..and if you can pinpoint when? Let’s go for 2014… and show Perry that not even Texans want him in charge of Texas any longer…
Because, guns in school… good grief… it’s like you have to play connect the dots with this idiot….
And I love how a man that wants to put control into the hands of local officials wants to run for the biggest federal office possible… but… gee, there’s no hypocrisy there. *rolls eyes*

“Especially in recent months, Texas has – in many ways – been at the center of our national debate about voting rights issues,” Holder said. “Let me be clear: we will not allow political pretexts to disenfranchise American citizens of their most precious right.”‘”
- Attorney General Eric Holder, speaking at the NAACP Convention in Houston last week, in regards to Texas’s proposed Voter ID Law.
Governor Rick Perry has requested an apology from him, for using racially charged language to describe the Voter ID law as a “poll tax” during that speech.
Well, Governor Goodhair, once you apologize to Texans for all of your politically charged talk of secession and your refusal to accept federal funds for the ACA and apologize to the 140,000 women because you defunded the Texas Women’s Health Program, I’m sure The Honourable Mr. Holder will see what he can do.
P.S. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, you can call it a Voter ID law all you want, but let’s call it what it really is: a poll tax.

“I’m not surprised by Governor Perry’s order for state agencies to plan for a 10% cut in their budgets. Two years ago, the Governor asked agencies to do the exact same thing—plan. But those hypothetical cuts became a harsh reality. If the course from last interim continues, no one should be shocked when additional cuts for the current budget year occur, making the $15.5 billion cut deeper. It has become standard operation for Governor Perry to ask for cuts in current spending and not just future spending. That’s why he’s given our agencies a heads up that they “may be asked to reduce their fiscal year 2013 budgets should state fiscal conditions warrant it.”
Even though some programs like Medicaid, CHIP, and the Foundation School Program are excepted from this order, so many of our state’s crucial programs and services are still on the chopping block. Public universities and community colleges, abuse and neglect investigations under Child and Adult Protective Services, prison and criminal justice systems, transportation, and mental health are just a handful of essential services at risk of being cut.”

“2016 is way down the road, but I’ll assure you one thing. If I decide to run for the presidency in 2016, I’ll be in way before the summer of 2016, 2015 even… I love this country. As long as my health stays good, as it is, and my family is supportive, I’m certainly going to give it a good examination.”
Oh, you thought you were done with him? Silly America, Rick Perry never goes away. (via kileyrae)
It remains to be seen if he can even win the Governorship again in Texas after this campaign debacle and the WHP controversy.
