The Gov told a TeaBagger gathering in North Richland Hills that Texas schools will be safer when school districts are given the ability to allow everyone who works at the schools to carry guns. The Gov stated “In the state of Texas, if you go through the process, have been trained, and you are a handgun-licensed individual, you should be able to carry a gun anywhere in the state.” Just be sure you don’t carry your licensed gun to the Capitol or you’ll be arrested. Can’t put legislators in danger.
Houston Federation of Teachers President Gayle Fallon said yesterday to a Houston TV Station that the idea of arming teachers was crazy. “I knew this would come up at some point, there would be people who think the answer is to put guns on campus. Frankly, I think it’s absurd. In a lot of cases, the perpetrator is a kid. Look at Columbine, it was a 14-year-old kid. You tell me a teacher is going to look in the eyes of a 14-year-old and pull the trigger — it’s not in their emotional make up.”
At the gathering The Gov said last week’s shootings at an elementary school in Connecticut was an evil act but insisted that new gun laws were not the answer. “We have to do everything we can to make sure those types of evils are restricted the best they can be. “One thing I hope I don’t see is knee-jerk reaction from Washington, where they come in and think they know the answers.”
So the problem was not because multiple guns were available but because of unspecified evil. Is the evil because the heathens are forsaken tithing 10 percent to a local Republican mouthpiece that no longer speaks of what Jesus would do but what we should do as good Republicans. Or is the evil the lack of mental health care or for that matter any type of health care for regular Texans?
Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy. Looks like we’re in for more entertainment during the next presidential campaign. The Gov. said Monday that he does not regret his failed presidential campaign last year. Along with Uzbekistan Herman Cain, The Gov. made the campaign much more enjoyable with his gaffes, shaky debate performances and uhhh, I can’t remember which three.
Speaking to a Tea Bagger gathering in North Richland Hills, The Gov. said “It was an extraordinary experience, and looking back on it I would do it again.”
We can only hope that Herman Cain will get in on the fun with The Gov. for the 2016 race.
The Gov. says “in July he will “make an announcement about my future political plans.” according to a tweet from the Rio Grande Guardian.
Talk about trying to build up the suspense.
In October, The Gov.’s chief mouthpiece, Ken Armbrister let out that The Gov. may run for a fourth term as Texas governor.
Grover Norquist, the Anti Tax Zealot, just expressed support for Perry as president. The Gov. opined last August to NBC News that he would “absolutely” consider another run for the White House”.
Seven Months? Man, how will we stand the suspense?
Ok, let’s get this right. Last week on Faux News, The Gov said. “We don’t trust this administration, and we don’t trust Washington, D.C. to be able to deliver health care in our state”. One in four of us Texans are uninsured, the highest rate of any state in the Union. Texas ranks 50th in per capita spending on it’s own citizens. But Texas Tea Bagger politics and The Gov. will not implement the Affordable Care Act even though it benefits Texas.
The Tea Baggers hate giving anything to the lazy, mostly black, druggies and them damn illegal aliens who would rather stay stoned all day chatting on the free IPhone’s Obama gave them while watching their Big Screen TV’s than actually work. This misdirected hatred is so blinding, they can’t grasp the thought that the Medicaid expansion would greatly help almost half the population of Texas.
The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, ObamaCare, would cover 49.4 percent of uninsured Texans by 2019. The program is broadened to cover Americans within 133 percent of the poverty line. In Texas the current the eligibility for a working Texan parent cuts off at 27 percent of the poverty line. Under the ACA, the federal government will cover the full cost of the first three years and pay 90 percent thereafter. But the hatred of Obama is so strong these Tea Baggers will go to any lengths to oppose anything his administration does to try and help the working poor and middle class, even as most of these clowns that support The Gov. fall in these classes. Classic case of cuttin’ off your nose to spite your face.
The Gov. continued on Faux News, stating “We’ve got some of the finest health care in the world, so the idea that this federal government, which doesn’t like Texas to begin with, to pick and choose and come up with some data and say somehow Texas has the worst health care system in the world is just fake and false on its face.”
Do these dupes even realize that in their zeal to oppose anything Obama proposes, they actually have given Obama control to come and implement everything they hate?
All this talk of secession and we can whup all them yankees in a couple of weeks, oh wait that was 1861, has social media awash with “I signed the Petition to Secede” comments and tons of Likes.
Now since the old boy in Arlington, Tx. has gotten so popular with his White House petition asking to let the state leave the U.S., along comes a fellar from El Paso with a petition asking the White House to let El Paso secede from Texas. WTF??????
Okay, he claims that El Paso has little in common with the rest of Texas and that it’s demographics are more similar to New Mexico. El Paso is also proud to be part of the United States and wants no part of a state whom publicly contemplates secession from our great nation.”
And then the plot thickens. Now an Austin resident has filed a White House petition asking that the city be allowed to secede from Texas.
This fellar writes that “Austin Texas continues to suffer difficulties stemming from the lack of civil, religious, and political freedoms imposed upon the city by less liberally minded Texans,” the petition explains. “It is entirely feasible for Austin to operate as its own state, within the United States, in the event that Texas is successful in the current bid to secede.
So now we have cities wanting to secede from the wacko’s who want to secede from the United States and operate as City States within the United States, kinda like Andorra or Monaco.
And what do these two cities have in common? Well, the Austin Petitioner writes that “It is important for Austin to remain in the union as to do so would protect it’s citizens standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers.” The El Paso petitioner writes that “El Paso has little in common with the rest of Texas.”
Are the folks in Texas beginning to come to their senses? Probably way too soon to tell but in 4 more years???
