Gov Perry Opens the Door For Beck

Governor/Secessionist/idiot Rick Perry continues to embarrass the state of Texas by making Glenn Beck an honorary Texan.  I'm more than a little offended by this move as it amounts to an amnesty for Beck.  While the rest of us had to wait to achieve residency, Beck has it handed to him making in-state college tuition cheaper as well as allowing him to use our unemployment benefits.

Drill When?

Regarding the natural disaster we are creating in the Gulf of Mexico. The Exxon Valdez had a capacity of 1.26 million barrels of oil when it ran aground in March of `89 resulting in it's "spill" though not all of that capacity was leaked. At the rate the sunken oil rig in the gulf is "spilling", it'll take a little over 3 weeks to equal the Valdez in scope without regard for lives lost.

Don't seem to hear much from the "drill here, drill now" crowd lately.

Good On The Health Care!

I'm really happy over the passing of the health care bill finally, as this was truly a case where private enterprise failed when left to its own devices. The icing on the cake I believe will be the hole dug by those who opposed the bill and I'm looking forward to watching all the explanations and excuses now that the commies have taken over and it didn't hurt. Even more to be pleased about is Rush Limbaugh making good on his promise to leave the country....surely he wouldn't lie about a thing like that would he?

Fortunately, It's Not About Gays Trying To Marry

James Wallace Fall is 58, lives in Minnesota and is married his 10 year old niece (now 19) and her aunt.  He defended his actions to the police explaining that it was God's will that he take his niece.  It isn't clear when this guy relocated to Minnesota from Texas (`cause he must have come from down here) but at least he didn't catch "the gay"....God would really be pissed.

A Friend I Never Knew

I'm not real good at this but that really doesn't matter as it isn't about me.  I never knew Jon Swift personally but I would've liked to.  He has a great blog, was a gifted writer, and suddenly stopped posting a year ago for unknown reasons.  The subject of his last post would be enough for anyone to make a change, I don't know.  Jon Swift's real name was Al Weisel and he died on Feburary 27th, this year on his way to his father's funeral.  His Mother annouced the news of his death in the "comments" to his last blog post.

"Sometimes, there aren't words".... But in reality these aren't those times, dammit,  Go to the link above and read what he wrote.  Damn, he's good and I'll remember him for the thrill of reading him!

"Xe" Are On The Road Again

So now Iraq is kicking out the "Xe" security folks in their country allowing them a couple of days to pack.  Seriously, can't we just change their name?  That seemed to help their image over here.

Gettin Our Maverick On

Part time governor, full time idiot, and occasional truth assassin on Fox "News" is in Texas stumping for secessionist/governor Rick Perry yesterday and today.  Fresh from a tea-bagging event (let your imagination run with it) her visit here only makes sense as we too don't require facts to get all mavericky and stuff and we love us some Palin!  Not that her visit here is a big deal but I wanted to post what I heard from a woman being interviewed on the local news yesterday. She apparently couldn't decide between Kay Baily (R-lying douche) or Rick Perry for Texas governor until she heard Palin endorse Perry and she's all Perry now bitches!

No wonder Texas is in a never ending shit storm against its own middle class when the middle class doesn't know enough to even consider alternatives to the same crap that have resulted in things like keeping 30% of  Texans without health insurance (or other equally appalling metrics like national education rankings, etc.).  Palin makes her mark like Perry, Kay Bailey, and numbers of others always have: incite the crowd to feed on the belief that everything wrong is the result of things like bad border security, Washington interference, and liberals instead of the asshole you put in office.

And another come Palin is addressed as "Governor"?  She quit that job so that shit should stop...just sayin.

Phelps, Bringin It To Houston!

Yep, we haven't had this much hate in town since Sean Hannity's "Freedom Concert" last summer. Thank God the folks from Westboro Baptist came through to give us that "Fred bounce"! Not sure if everyone knows but the city of Houston had the nerve to elect an open gay mayor right here in the middle of the Republic of East Texas (land of Cornyn, Kay Bailey, Tom Delay, Dick Armey, Bush(s)...I could go on). Annise Parker's swearing in ceremony was held today and the Phelps clan drove all the way down from Topeka to bless the occasion.

Good on Houston for electing someone on issues instead of fear/hate or other stupidity driven factors. And, good on Houston as well for takin one for the country because if the Phelps bunch is down here, they aren't fuckin up something somewhere else.
