Rick Perry: Country´s Economy
in Trouble Without Texas

Daily Caller, by Willam Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:Hooverdog, 2/1/2013 3:22:55 PM

Texas Governor Rick Perry claimed this week that the health of the U.S. economy is dependent in large part on Texas. Perry said, “You think about what’s happening in the country, job-wise, economic impact-wise, if you were to take Texas out of that mix, this country would be in trouble.” Texas has done so well under Perry that he wants to give $1.8 billion in tax rebates to the people of Texas, saying, “That money will do more good in the hands of taxpayers and citizens.” Because the Texas state constitution forbids such a move, Perry says he will try to pass a constitutional amendment so he can give the people their money back.

I´m actually enjoying Rick Perry. First, it was UN election observers (show up and we´ll arrest you); next, Obama Care (uh, no thanks), then gun laws (won´t enforce), now this obvious truth. He keeps poking a stick in the Left´s eye. He get´s the 10th Amendment and says that Texas should not be penalized for California´s lousy decisions (socialism) and with this he´s putting the focus on the benefits of good policy. Keep it up, Rick!

The Liars Club is in session in Austin, we should ask them to rescind their ratification of the 16th amendment and then have them ask the Feds, all of them, to leave the Republic.

The skill, knowledge, experience in the petroleum industry is keeping everyone from entry level attorneys to "rough necks" in the the 6 figure income bracket.

I´ve been told, due to lack of mineral ownership work in the past....100 years, there is enough curative title work in Eastern Ohio for one young lawyer I know to do until he retires.

Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana are providing the basic work force from the local level to North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

The proximity to all the new and growing industry in Mexico helps as well. There is a lot of transportation and support in Southern Texas for all that goes on Industrially South of the border.

Gov Perry is certainly becoming more of a right leaning conservative as he ages. He almost lost me completely when he mandated females had to be inoculated from cancer. Difficult to recover from that stumble. He has morphed into an ok guy.

#3, the ranch country Texans I know have held on to the mineral rights tighter than Dick´s hatband for generations. We just knew it´d pay off someday.

Just imagine if he had been elected President what we´d all be enjoying right now.

#5: Do your research. I also thought he had ´mandated´ that but found out later what he wanted was much different than what had been reported.

Imagine that?

The more I think about it - we, in the other states that aren´t doing so well, should heavily tax rich, Texas . . . sort´a in the spirit of passing some of the wealth around and income redistribution!

Naw, we (Texas) just need to secede and slap an export tax meter on the oil and gas pipelines headed northeast and west. Let the Yankees and Kalifornicators pay for the cost of the government of the glorious Republic of Texas!!

I would argue that only the truly Republican run states are keeping the economy going. The demonrat run states are all a drag on the economy.

#12 has it right. Instead of arguing about secession, perhaps we should try a different tactic: expulsion. We´d have a pretty good country if we could expel Boston, NY, Detroit, LA, and San Francisco. And then pass an anti-immigration bill so that all those folks can´t move to Miami.

Obama should thank his lucky stars for Texas and Rick Perry.

Jason Whitlock: Rap music an "unapologetic
accomplice" in Trayvon´s death
Daily Caller, by Gabe Finger    Original Article
Posted By: Hooverdog- 7/17/2013 9:03:32 AM     Post Reply
In a pair of columns released Monday and Tuesday, Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock voiced his belief that rap music and its widespread use of the N-word were major factors in Trayvon Martin’s death. Whitlock, an African-American, certainly doesn’t believe that rap and N-word use were the only things to blame. “Although I believe the jury reached the only logical conclusion based on the trial, I’m highly disappointed Zimmerman was not held criminally responsible for following Martin, ignoring police instructions and shooting a 17-year-old kid after losing a fight his pursuit instigated,” he wrote.

As far as the Trayvon Martin situation goes, acquittal or no acquittal, the whole event and subsequent trial is a tragedy. And Skittles and iced tea or not, 17-year-old Trayvon should never have been lurking about in a hoodie between buildings on a dark rainy night in a townhouse complex. Now, regardless of how or why this boy died, a child is dead and will never have an opportunity to grow out of the typical youthful foolishness which ultimately cost him his life. And for every hoodie-wearing thug out there who´s now blaming George Zimmerman for Trayvon´s death,

Trayvon´s Tragedy: Exploited in Death

Profiting from the death of a child is sick and disgusting. Unfortunately, this describes the circle of exploiters promoting the Trayvon Martin traveling show after his death in February 2012. And if you´re Trayvon´s parents, there´s nothing like having the president, the attorney general, the state attorney general, several civil rights lawyers, and invested others to help you in your campaign. Shame on Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, the State of Florida, the lawyers, and all the vultures picking a dead kid´s bones clean for a lousy buck and political points.

WASHINGTON — Say what you want about President Obama but you got to give the guy credit. He finally discovered the holy grail for dislodging the bloated ranks of federal workers from their jobs. Force them into Obamacare! According to a report in Politico Thursday, lawmakers and their staff all over Capitol Hill are heading for the exits. Turns out, they can endure the toxic air of politics, slavishly long hours, dinky offices and lecherous lawmakers creeping up and down the halls. But one thing they simply will not abide?

Black Conservatives Rising: @Large
Conference Points Way to Future
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Lee Stranahan    Original Article
Posted By: Hooverdog- 6/13/2013 10:22:05 AM     Post Reply
The @Large Conference held recently in Baton Rouge, Louisiana brought people together from around the country to discuss issues related to black conservatives. In a time when the GOP is talking ´outreach´, the conference was an important first step in the Republican party reclaiming its heritage as the party of individual rights, colorblind justice and equality of opportunity. The panelists and speakers also showed that many black conservatives are right in line with the new generation of Republican rabble-rousers like the late Andrew Breitbart, pushing against the radical left and the GOP establishment with fierce conviction.

The debate was over, but John McCain wasn’t done. After he threw down with a trio of younger Republican colleagues he has dubbed the “wacko birds,” McCain proceeded to walk around the Senate floor, ranting about the interchange to individual senators. McCain was incensed that Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee have been blocking Democratic majority leader Harry Reid from appointing Senate members to a conference committee for the budget resolution. During the debate, McCain “basically accused Lee of being an idiot,” as one aide put it.

A less-than-surprising look into the world of workers’ rights reveals that one union boss is under fire for either being too fat, too lazy, too over-paid or on too many painkillers (from being too fat), depending on who you ask. Mark Rosenthal, president of Local 983 of District Council 37, is accusing political rivals of trying to run him out of his $156,000-a-year-plus-perks job overseeing about 3,000 low-paid workers and officers involved in the Parks Department and NYPD, The New York Post reports.

After a good amount of hoopla, Texas Governor Rick Perry is expected to quietly sign legislation allowing public schools to celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays plainly and explicitly without fear of lawsuits. The proposed law, dubbed the “Merry Christmas Bill,” sailed easily through both the Texas House and Senate and now awaits the Perry’s signature, reports the Dallas Observer. Vote tallies were 145-2 in the House and 29-0 in the Senate. With Perry’s signature, the law will take effect beginning in fall 2013 — roughly 120 shopping days before Christmas.

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office.

"She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
