.Thanks for responding to my post.<quoted text>
It has nothing to do with the drunk person you are focused on.
"But Lehmberg (the drunk person you are focused on) and other Travis County officials (Democrats in Austin) recused themselves from the case and are not prosecuting it."
Do you see that? SHE is not prosecuting this case. REPUBLICANS ARE:
"One year ago a Republican judge from Bexar County, Bert Richardson, appointed a special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, to handle the prosecution.
McCrum, a criminal defense attorney in San Antonio, is a former Dallas police officer who began his career as a federal prosecutor during the George H.W. Bush administration"
And it has nothing to do with Perry wanting her removed:
"No one disputes that Perry, a Republican, had the authority to use his line-item veto power, guaranteed by the Texas Constitution, to eliminate the $7.5 million in two-year state funding for the public integrity unit.[....]
The allegation is that Perry improperly combined the two — that he illegally tied his power over integrity unit funding to his demand that Lehmberg resign, essentially setting up a quid pro quo arrangement that crossed the line into an abuse of power.
Even after the veto, there were numerous reports that Perry's office continued to dangle a restoration of the state funding or a future job offer to Lehmberg if she would leave office. Sources said Lehmberg rejected the deal because she questioned whether it was legal."

I don't know about that. After 9/11 the Bush administration let all the government's excess military equipment be sold to Barney Fife cops across AMERICA. All under the guise of "protecting the homeland from "turists*" (terrorists or tourists, who knows for sure).
Yeah, "turists*" are really going to hit Ferguson....or Lenior....or Waco. ;)
So now all these rookies have all this equipment and by doggie, they are damn well going to use against the "others".

I wish people would just talk.

Without Texas job creation, America would be 315,000 jobs to the NEGATIVE.
TEXAS CREATED.... 1.1 million jobs.....

Brown family asks for restraint.
#60185 Aug 19, 2014
I'm not sure they want justice. I think they want revenge.

Victoria, I'm going to do something, that's not been done very often on Topix.
I'm going to tell you, pure truth.
If I were armed, and someone broke bones in my face, I would kill them.
I'll let y'all decide.
#60187 Aug 19, 2014
The main problem, is is that no one listens anymore.
People believe what they want.
There is no right or wrong, only perception.

As always, Waco remains consistent with the teachings of Jesus

I think Rick Perry wants a new mug shot.

I saw the video. She was drunk, the head of the Public Integrity Office was driving drunk,(a misdemeanor.). Not exactly a great example for others . The problem for Perry arose when she refused to resign her elected office and Perry: 1. openly (and illegally) threatened to veto funding for the Public Integrity Office. Then 2. Perry carried out that threat. In doing this, Perry committed two felonies: 1 was the coercion of an elected official and 2. Was abuse of the power of his office.
So, the Governor of the great state of Texas commits two felonies in order to punish a misdemeanor by the head of the Public Integrity Office . Not exactly smart and not exactly a great example for others.
Governor Perry broke the law, committing two felonies. The head of Public Integrity broke the law committing a misdemeanor. It is the job of the courts to provide judge, jury and punishment for those who have broken the law. Perry’s offense is much more serious than driving drunk because he decided to assume the function of the courts. The difference between and the reason for separation of judicial authority , legislative authority and administrative authority seems to be something republican have difficulty understanding

Even with just the mug shot, Perry is finished as a potential Presidential candidate. Can you see it now on TV commericals and political billboards? He's toast. It's perception, Waco.
#60192 Aug 19, 2014
I think this will have quite the opposite effect.
We shall see, eh?
#60193 Aug 19, 2014
I really enjoy talking to you guys... like people.
It's a relief, actually.
The only subject, I can't talk to you guys about, is Israel.
You'll pardon me, about that, won't you?
I'm way too close, to that.
I've lost friends, and family.
I wish I could..... tell you... about that.... but there's just too much pain..
but a part of me, wishes you could feel... what I have felt.
I just can't make you see, what it's like.
But, I'm glad you don't know, this kind of pain.
I wouldn't wish it, on my worst enemy.
State, TSF, Red, Victoria.....
#60194 Aug 19, 2014
At least, you four guys care about people.
These days, that's saying a lot...
#60195 Aug 19, 2014
I don't think the American people want to see their President in an actual mug shot. The Tea Party had to distort Obama's image. We would just put out the real thing on Perry.
#60196 Aug 19, 2014
The governor of Missouri has made it obvious, that he is demanding a lynching.
This is fantastic.
Already deciding that Wilson is guilty, with no trial.
It is obvious to me, that Brown charged Wilson.
Testimony will bear this out.
His frame of mind, judging by the assault on the Asian gentleman, was aggressive, to say the least.
Evidence will show, that Wilson suffered bodily damage from Brown's attack, and that Brown was in the process of attacking Wilson again, after knocking the**** out of him, to begin with.
This is a travesty.
"Justice for the Brown family"???
How about.. JUSTICE???
#60197 Aug 19, 2014
Hey, I guess we'll see, right Mr Smart Guy?
The democrats have really****** up this time.
When this blows up in their faces, I can't say I'll be sorry.
This time, democrat dirty tricks will stand for all to see.
Hey, how's that Christie investigation, going?
Nothing but smoke and mirrors.
#60198 Aug 19, 2014
Doesn't it seem strange to you that the very day that Brown's autopsy is released, an annoymous unidentifed caller calls a talk show host and gives Wilson's side of the story because she is a "friend" of his. What credibility does that have? And yet, RWer believe this hoaky story because that is exactly what they want to believe. Directly from the play book to demonize the victim.
