Perry tours tornado damage

LANCASTER, Texas -- Gov. Rick Perry toured tornado-damaged areas in North Texas Thursday and met with emergency management officials. During a press conference, Perry suggested Texas would ask for federal disaster relief for areas hit by the storm.

...but how can this be? I thought we were about to secede! And didn't Goodhair just turn down federal money for women's health care?

Hey Rick! You still have about $3.7 million in your failed campaign's bank accounts, and your personal little slush fund is sitting on another $200 million, but I understand that you need that money to butter your own bread, so why don't you just do what you've been doing all along... thumb your nose at the feds and cut some more from the schools.

After all, you've got to help out your buddies in the construction and insurance industries if you want them  to continue feathering your nest.

In 1984 when he won his first election to statewide office, Goodhair reported a net personal worth of just $13,000. In 2009, after 25 years feeding at the public trough, Rick's financials reveal a net worth of $1.09 million. Who knew that being a public servant could be so lucrative?

Clowns to the left of us, jokers to the right... Indeed.

Good point, and the same thing occurs in congress... One wonders HOW they make all that money???

I don't wonder how at all. I just wonder why it's legal and how we can change that. There isn't any political office that should not be subject to the same laws as the people.

Good for the goose, yada yada.

Good point MB, and I agree 100%!
