We have a Governor? How about that? Wow! Isn't this the guy that created a budget shortfall for the state? The one that's trying to reduce the budget by taking from the middle class and poor? Well of course. He has no worries. He's very well accommodated with living conditions. Afterall, you and I pay for it. No need to live in the governor's mansion during a fiscal crisis. He needs to make cuts at his end too. But don't count on it. He's Republican. That's what they do best. Live off the middle class and poor. Nice job Perry.

Do you morons know how much it's costing to fight those fires?
My comment was that he won't get any response out of jug ears in Washington. That liver-lipped idiot will wad that letter up and throw it away. He doesn't give a rip about Texas.
It' not all about Perry, it's about those guys who are risking their lives to save homes, ect. Hell, there's been 2 firemen die trying to save land, homes, ect.
My hats off to all firemen and women who are risking their lives to save others.

Didn't Texas secede from the US earlier in the week?

Let Perry apply for foreign aid from us.

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, "Secede!"

An animated Perry told the crowd at Austin City Hall -- one of three tea parties he was attending across the state -- that officials in Washington have abandoned the country's founding principles of limited government. He said the federal government is strangling Americans with taxation, spending and debt.

Perry repeated his running theme that Texas' economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the "federal budget mess." Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.

Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.

“said Gov. Perry,'As wildfires continue to rage across our state, Texas is reaching its capacity to respond to these emergencies and is in need of federal assistance. I urge President Obama to approve our request quickly so Texans can continue receiving the resources and support they need as wildfires remain an ongoing threat.”

Republiscum/TeaParasites are big talkers with puffed out chests and swagger when they think things are going well. They quickly return to the little whiners they are when things make a turn for the worse and they need Mommy's help.

All hat, no cattle...not even a runt calf.

Hello again, stupid. Texas took in 180,000 refugees from Katrina, housed them in universities, hotels, the Astrodome, and college dorms at our expense. We have sent firefighters to Calfornia, Oregan and other forested states having problems. The Texas Dog Team which is the largest in the world went to 9/11 immediately and helped to look for survivors and bodies. Texas farmers have sent hay to drought ravaged parts of the country for livestock for many years.

A little pay back is nice.

Now, how many katrina refugess did your pathetic little hole take in???

We're not seceding, just taking over.

Secede already you lying bums.

So now you are threatening the USA with war?

Secede already you all hat and no cattle liars.

I love how your fatarse oldhag Babsie Bush insulted everyone of the Katrina survivors while others wondered out loud how those dark skinned people would change the landscape. You are a bunch of racists and everyone knew it then and knows it now.

When you think you are doing better (even while Perry lies lies lies about the budget and you morons believe him LOL) you scream about seceding. So secede now and apply for foreign aid.

You aren't taking over anything. Latinos are taking over YOU. Welcome to being a MINORITY.

You know that flowered bra is really too tight. Ask your wife to buy you a new one next time she's shopping at Walmart.
