Maybe you liberals should go to Texas and get a taste of how they deal with your ilk. Texans would be glad to mail your teeth back to you after you leave.

Leave it to each Texan to "deal" w/ others how they wish, instead of attempting to speak for each and every Texan. You may find that your "perception" is more skewed than your opinion and that
Texan's don't like others speaking on their behalf.

Oh, and I know you're not going to keep violating the TOS in this section by continuing to make threats against other posters.

What funds would Perry use to fight the wildfires if Texas had seceded and did not pay in Federal taxes?

What do Perry and secession have to do with each other?

Are you sure about that? How do you know, Mr. Good-hair has made it impossible for you to know.

Gov. Rick Perry, hypocrite | Gregg Easterbrook

Quote:
Perry snuck through the state legislature a rider that prohibits the Texas Department of Public Safety from revealing how much it spends on bodyguards for Perry and his wife on their personal trips. The prohibition lasts until 2013 — that is, till after the 2012 presidential election — and is transparently intended to prevent voters from knowing how much money Perry is hypocritically spending on himself. Not long after enacting a government-secrecy rule to protect his own appropriations, Perry called for “substantial cuts in government spending.”
But for sure he's using his taxpayer funded salary...

Quote:
More Perry hypocrisy involves him taking pay for no work. He’s gallivanting around the nation campaigning for the Republican nomination. Yet he has not taken an unpaid leave of absence from the governorship. Perry continues to draw his $150,000 taxpayer-funded salary, even as he spends his time outside Texas, promoting himself.
If you told your employer, “I won’t do my job for months as I travel to promote myself, but expect full pay the entire time,” you’d be laughed at. As chief executive of the state, Perry can take advantage of his position by paying himself to be absent. Government employees taking advantage of the taxpayer is exactly the sort of thing Perry fulminates against — unless he’s the one doing it
Quote:
Some have advocated “resign-to-run” laws, which would require a public official who declares for a higher office to resign his or her present office. One former supporter of resign-to-run laws is Rick Perry. In 1989, he introduced an amendment to the Texas constitution that would have imposed “automatic resignation” on a Texas governor who declares for any national office.
Now Perry is doing what he said others should not do. The word for this sort of thing begins with the letter H. So far, hypocrisy is the defining element of the Perry campaign.
Adios mofo Perry.

I take these threads as a clear sign of how scared liberals really are about Obama losing in 2012 which you should be. Now are you going to actually talk about the wild fires in TX and Rick Perry's responsibilities that he's not handling or will you continue to make stupid jokes about hair gel or prayer meetings?
Not really.

Would congratulations, for how well Rick Perry is handling this crisis, be in order?

Now why are you so afraid of the following question. Should we hold the President of the US to the same standard as a state Governor? I have refuted every lie you have tried to slip by. Please be kind enough to answer 1 simple question.

Did you really just ask this? If Texas did not pay federal taxes they would still have that money to fight wild fires. Liberals can't be this dense.
