“We’re in court today to stop a terrible situation for women in Texas from getting even worse. Politicians are interfering with the personal medical decisions of women who already have the least access to birth control and preventive health care. If this law goes into effect, there is no doubt it will end access to safe and legal abortion for many women, leaving some to resort to desperate and dangerous measures. We won’t let that happen.”
Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, via ACLU of Texas’s Press Release: Texas Health Care Providers File Lawsuit to Protect Abortion Access In Texas

“In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of as single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”
Rick Perry, speaking to the National Right to Life Convention about Senator Wendy Davis

Not just redistricting anymore.
Word that Gov. Perry has added transportation to the special session call.
Does anyone know if Education is still not on the call? Because word is he’s going to veto HB5 and that’s going to be bad news for public education, but good news for those of us that want him out of office because no WAY he gets reelected when/if he vetoes that one.

“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*
