So sad that politicians and offices can be openly bought today.
Hardly a new phenomenon.
Which makes it ok
Are you condoning it?
The openness that it is done with today is absurd.
I don't have the time to do an "advanced search" at the moment, but I will in the morning. So I will ask now, while enjoying a beverage in a loud bar: have either of you asserted in the PRSI, perhaps even more than a couple of times, "but [insert conservative name here] did it before."
Perhaps you are both above-board. Just thought I'd ask before putting time into it in the morning.
Didn't say that, did I?
As far as I'm aware I never have, I don't particularly like Democrats and when they step out of line I'm quite happy to call them on it.
This Perry stuff is clearly a case of bribery...cut and dry its ridiculous that it's that easy to buy a politician.
When the target is power at this level, there is no limit to the depths that will be attempted.
Man, It's almost like Texas has a lot of money or something. I bet everyone in Texas is mad about this. Well, then again %40 of our country's job growth in the past two years has been in Texas. So I doubt they're too upset
At least he's helping businesses instead of expanding our federal "extend the poverty cycle" social uplift (hah!) programs
Public sector and minimum wage jobs.
Wow, that's an excellent graph! Bassfingers is obviously out of touch with reality. Perry is just another big government republican like bush.
I'm a bit confused. Republicans say government can't create jobs yet Perry claims he did. Does he wear tights and a cape under his suit?
Interesting article here:
Oh, wow. So more government jobs are opening up and people are taking them. What is this supposed to prove?
Where have you been man? Look at that rise on government jobs from a small government conservative hypocrite. As we've been told, government jobs are not real jobs.
As long as independent money is allowed into the political process, our politicians will be purchased by those who have the money. The only way around this is to limit the reelection season to 6 months or less, have tax payer dollars fund the minimums for a campaign, or severely restrict individual contributions. Allowing large business entities to dump millions into the process only corrupts it. You and I end up being represented as a by-product of the real big business agenda.
Perry is doing an outstanding job regarding Texas's exploding unwed mother situation. The interview in this clip is hilarious. O...M...G, Who needs sex education anyway?? Now you know, abstinence works... if you don't have sex. Perry for President has quite a ring to it. We want big donors to push this guy to the top. It will be good for all of us.
This is the problem with conservative theology and conservatism in general. We stick our heads in the sand because we don't want to have to deal with it, whether it is teen pregnancy, global warming, or even clean water. Oh, and we don't want to pay for it either.
Regarding education and Texas's dismal standing, I was going to say something witty like all you have to do is have an A average and your set for a future job, but then I started thinking about how many good paying jobs were actually going to be available for the handful of A students who don't have a backdoor into corporatism based on their families connections...
Is there a reason why high school students are not busting their asses to get the grades? Do they plan on living in their parents basements for the foreseeable future?
so how long before radioactive pollution ruins Texas from the corner cutting slipshod work that company is bound to do
Exactly. All it will take is a few more head in the sand Governors who make horrible decisions regarding the environment and the Republican party will be done for.
It's a shame but Texans keep electing him so in a way, I guess they deserve it.
I think I read that the groundwater is only about 14 feet below the proposed facility. Perry will be lauded in some circles for creating the ultimate border defense system. Too bad that the Gulf of Mexico will also become a permanent dead zone.
As population increases the need for more jobs in every sector increases; including government positions.
Except that Texas has increased its ratio of government workers far more than how quickly the population has grown:
At most the population grew by about 2-4% in one year, and yet the state spent a great deal more money on its government operations. According to Wikipedia, Texas generated $69 billion in revenue in 2009, but spent $90 billion.
Who knew Rick Perry was such a Keynesian?
You get the picture. Conservatives love it:
Not according to the conservatives. Small government = better government that's their mantra.
So why aren't they living by that mantra?
Same reason their wives say one thing to their faces, then spend all their free time kneeling before the alter of big... ... ... government....
