Racist Texas cops AND POLITICIANS shoot undocumented from helicopters

That sicko clone of Dubya called Rick Perry, the current governor of Texas, is a very busy man. When he's not defunding Planned Parenthood in his home state, he has been recently up here in Colorado campaigning for Mitt Romney, under the basic theme of going backwards in order to get to the future. But he also is energetically creating a war zone in south Texas under the guise of fighting the so-called 'drug war'. That's how we get to this story: Texas trooper in chopper shoots, kills 2 suspected illegal immigrants --in a car that might very well have been carrying children. The Republican meatheaded Anglo racist 'policing' lot just don't care when it comes to the killing of others, when they have Brown and Black skin! (That's Rick Perry stepping from a 'Texas Department of Public Safety' people-killer helicopter.)

About Republican idiocy on health care policies? -Texas politician Rick Perry leads the way

'Gov. Rick Perry, who is vocally opposed to the (Obama health care) law, says the state can "deliver health care more efficiently, more effectively and cheaper than the federal government can." That's great, Rick, but you are a liar, now aren't you. Your state, Texas, which is where I am from, actually has the highest percentage of its population of any of the 50 states who remain without any health care coverage. So you are a liar!

Good riddance, Rick Perry

Just one week after defending the actions of US soldiers who were pissing on corpses of Afghans and laughing about it and filming it, Rick Perry has had to withdraw from the race to get the Republican nomination for President. Perry defends Marines accused of urinating on corpses Good riddance, Rick. It would be nice if the state of Texas would get rid of you, too.

Nineteen years

That's how long it's been. I fell, at work, on this date 19 years ago. Broke the talus, cuboid, and fourth metatarsal on the right foot and dislocated the foot (it looked like Joe Theissman's ankle when the Cowboys got him)(and then lost the game with zero points anyway) and my left tibial plateau. (man I was messed up from the pain last night, I had his name written as Jes) As horrendous as that damage was, it could actually have been treated. They patched the bones together into more or less anatomical position then told me the screws and plate they used would be taken out in two years, and with therapy I would make a good recovery. The pendejo who had the bright idea of saving money by not buyng a second ladder for the second jobsite, and instead taking the ladder to one site and leaving us to walk up and down a conveyor belt like a ramp, promised he would make it right on the medical care. Well, danged if that ol' boy didn't just sell his company to his brother and skip state so as not to pay me a damn thing. The Mega-Rich excusez moi Tera Rich

The headline reads “Perry linked to KKK – Shocking secrets!”

But it was on the National Enquirer. Granted, they have far more journalistic integrity and standards than FOX but, still, they have the reputation now as a gossip paper obsessed with which celebrities have the best dressed children and such. And their past reputation hasn't quite worn off either, the "I saw Elvis in a UFO" type of paper. I don't know if he's directly a member of The Klan, what would surprise me on that count is that he would have the necessary taste for personal violence they require. Where he has the status and reputation of being a ChickenHawk like Bush. That the Republican party is the "drug of choice" for Klan members is hardly a secret. The ones who left the Democratic Party en masse first when Truman signed the order de-segregating the Army and those who were still not convinced that overt racism was becoming Tabu in the DP. Until Johnson signed Civil Rights acts. Their official motto is "I didn't leave the Democrats, the Democratic Party left ME!" Strangely, the Republican Party, which mumbled a harsh tsk-tsk'ing to the Klan on some occasions, welcomed into their party a huge group of former Dixiecrats whose reason for leaving was that

Capital = Job creation, as explained by CenturyLink formerly Qwest formerly SW Bell

and somewhere in there a brief fantasy relationship with Yahoo as an internet service provider and a general screwing to the taxpayers of the City of Irving and Dallas county being thrown in... but I once more digress. CenturyLink "absorbed" Qwest's facilities, employees and corporate debts in a process called merger where all duplicated or "redundant" jobs on both sides of the merger were downsized. Meaning XXX number of real people lost their tech and service sector jobs. That's the way it looks on any prospectus of any merged corporations, in order to convince people to invest more capital in those corporations. In reality the jobs created would be debt collectors and repossession crews and foreclosure agents. BUT that's what they tell the Money People. Those of us who are in the Peasant Majority are told that we should welcome CenturyLink along with the massive tax breaks given on top of the ones they already enjoyed PLUS extras for "Job Creation" in our communities... we're told that these massive layoffs is somehow an opportunity for those "downsized" out of having a living wage job to get a job with a company who has just laid off about 20 percent of their workforce

Texas Gov. Rick GoodHair getting yet another job-creating Federal Bailout

38 new jobs but, like most of the "new jobs" of the "Texas Miracle" these are Federal "nanny state bailout" jobs which, like the other "new federal jobs" created, are pre-filled with existing out of state workers. And hopefully will be only temporary. Two C130 cargo planes w/ crews, air and ground, to fight the wildfires created by Rick Perry and the other Bozo governors who have spent the past decade and a half denying that their Oil Company Corporate Owners, the ones whose rectums every governor of Texas has inhabited since the early 1920s, were causing massive climate change. So Texas has the record for hottest summer of any state. That would include Arizona. Texas always held the record for Moron Governors. (Utah holds the record for Mormon Governors but that's a different story) And Perry Keeps The Tradition Alive Not that people deserve to be punished for the accumulated wealth and associated blood-guilt of a very few wealthy. Most of the people in Texas are good people like every other place on Earth. See, I can do that shit with the pat on the head for the "good" members of any minority whose leaders piss off the establishment. 27485

Problems Per Perry’s Precipitation Petition? Perhaps…

There's a failsafe in the rainmaker/faith healer scam that lets the thief off the ol' hook so that either way he gets paid. If the sufferer is healed, even if say, he was "laid hands on" on the 6th day of a 7 day cold and was much better the next day, like that, then the scamster wins. Takes the money and splits. If the sufferer dies, or just doesn't get better, the sufferer himself is to blame for not having enough faith. Scamster still gets paid. Same with the rainmaking game, you get paid if you "make" rain or if the "doubters in the audience prevented it". So what happens when you get more than you expected? There's a pretty widespread tropical storm in the Gulf right now, hitting Lousy Anna with a projected two feet of rainfall. All the low pressure is drawing high pressure down from the north and west in a pretty snappy cold front. At noon Dallas time the temperature was 86. That's a full 20 degrees lower than they were getting all summer. All measurements non-metric, though, because Americans have sabotaged the Public Education in many ways including rejection of the Metric System as being "socialism".

Vote for Me, or Pogo gets it between the eyes…

In another episode of the RNC deliberately throwing the 2012 elections, Bush administrations pointing fingers at each other over the Katrina non-handling. Instead of blaming everybody but themselves. Rick GoodHair told the VFW that he would send more Working Class people into harms way with pre-emptive strikes against anybody who is profiled as MAYBE becoming a terrorist threat sometime in the vague future. AND, Bachmann came out in favor of drilling for oil in the Everglades. So it's not exactly Okefenokee, the place where Pogo lived. Through the medium of a cartoon of course.

Self-contradictory positions taken by TeaBag and Radical Republicans

The list is massive, their own anti-American Terrorist threats in relation to voting rights, civil rights, racism, hate-speech against Muslims, hate-speech inspired attacks against Muslims and other religious, racial, social, or cultural groups and individuals... Oh, and the constant use of Massive Conspiracy theories of their own to denounce "conspiracy theories" like the questions raised over RepubliKlan and TeaBags rigging either the initial attacks on 9/11 directly, rigging the public response to those attacks for the profit of their Warmongering Corporate Leaders, and D) All of the Above. Let's jump right in with Voting Rights, in Houston, one of the major cities in the Exxon Protectorate Territory of Texas. According to TeaBag-RepubliKlan legend, so "Red" that only Massive Commie Infiltration could have thwarted their machinations. 19707

Hysterical Revisionist Virginia Tea Party attempts another test of Anti-Smart Bomb Strategy, EPIC FAIL!

As we approach the Sesquicentennial (150 years) of the Civil War (massive contradiction in terms) the Commonwealth of Virginia attempted to pass off a "Confederate History Month" with no mention whatsodamnever of slavery. Even with decades of attempting to show that display of the Confederate Southern Cross battle flag (not an official confederate national flag, incidentally) is somehow not a symbol of Racism.   (These colors don't run... A God-Damn thing.) 15829

Rick Perry is Dubya’s Sarah Palin

Texas State politics is heating up again after years of Governor Rick Perry biding his time in the shadows of the ex-President. George W. Bush was Texas governor before he put Rick Perry in line for the office, but now in the storm of reactionary nonsense flying out from Right Wing circles, Perry has become a Superstar in his own right just like McCain's Sarah Palin. Jim Hightower asks, What's Up With the Governor of Texas? 7546

Why is Dale Barlow free?

Why is Dale Barlow free? He is the guy accused of sex with a minor. The total of kids taken into custody in Eldorado, Texas now stands at 417, yet Dale Barlow is free! 3036

Police state runs amok in Eldorado Texas

Let's face it, Republican US President, George W. Bush, and Republican Texas State Governor, Rick Perry, are simply in total cahoots in coordinating the incredible police state witch hunt going on in Eldorado, Texas. The US police state is running amok and this is a test case for how much the government can get away with in denying US citizens their constitutional rights. 3021
