AUSTIN Lashing out at what he called the “Soviet-style” tactics of the indictments against him, Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Tuesday that the government had “grossly overstepped its traditional role of mandating transvaginal ultrasounds.”

Speaking to supporters in Austin, Perry blasted the indictments and called for a return to an era of limited government that focusses on requiring gynecological procedures.

“We are living in dark days indeed when the state of Texas is spending time and money probing its officials instead of its women,” he said, to thunderous applause

AUSTIN TX - Last week’s indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry has sparked widespread bipartisan support for the concept of sending politicians to prison for ninety-nine years.
While Americans are divided about the merits of the specific charges levelled against Perry, there is near-unanimous agreement that imprisoning politicians for ninety-nine years is an idea worth exploring further, a poll released on Monday indicates.
According to the poll, eighty-seven per cent of voters from both parties agreed that sending politicians to prison for such a lengthy period would “solve a lot of problems” and “make the country safer.”
Additionally, when asked to name one politician they would like to see incarcerated for ninety-nine years, voters easily rattled off a dozen or more such candidates, with some voters naming as many as fifty.
Finally, when informed that imprisoning politicians for ninety-nine years might lead to overcrowding that would require the construction of costly new prisons, eighty-three per cent agreed with the statement,“Money is no object.”

Thank you for that response because it brings to the surface HPD or Histrionic personality disorder.

Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive attention-seeking emotions, usually beginning in early adulthood, including inappropriately seductive behavior and an excessive need for approval. Histrionic people are lively, dramatic, vivacious, enthusiastic, and flirtatious. HPD affects four times as many women as men. It has a prevalence of 2–3% in the general population and 10–15% in inpatient and outpatient mental health institutions.

HPD lies in the dramatic cluster of personality disorders. People with HPD have a high need for attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate their behaviors and emotions, and crave stimulation. They may exhibit sexually provocative behavior, express strong emotions with an impressionistic style, and can be easily influenced by others. Associated features include egocentrism, self-indulgence, continuous longing for appreciation, and persistent manipulative behavior to achieve their own needs.

Carry those words onto concepts.

Topix atheists such as yourself make a big deal about words and structure. They have to follow a certain form for you to believe them. Part of your training. One of your favorite reasons to ridicule a very old book.

You miss the gist of things.

Or something like that.

how's about ya'll work on curbing your islamic fascism from taking over all of europe and we'll continue our tea party celebration of freedom?
Once again you are clueless of what you speak. It must me your mental aberration and fascination with my pubic area that not only affects your moral decency but somehow your understanding of fact as well.

As I said, the tea party is right wing – far right, much further right than the average right wing American. Fascism is a right wing philosophy and the tea party are in the fascist camp born of the fascism prevalent 80 years ago. The Koch’s were raised to admire Mussolini and set the tea party up in the image of Hitlers brown shirts. There is no freedom involved in their policy except perhaps the freedom of Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Rand Paul to profit from your misery.

As the West ramped up its sanctions against the Russian Federation, on Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin convened a high-level meeting of his imaginary friends to craft a response.
Putin spent over six hours consulting with his inner circle of imaginary friends, whom he refers to as the League of Superior Beings.
Attending the meeting were Igor, a powerful brute who can deflect missiles with his bare fists; Dr. Karamazov, who can control the world’s weather; and Ludmila, a sorceress whose powers include the ability to bend time and transform herself into a number of animals and insects.
According to sources, Putin and his imaginary friends are weighing a broad array of options, including covering Europe in icicles and sending U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to another dimension.

A daily vitamin pill is good for you and it tastes much better
Edward de Bono is one of the world’s most respected lateral thinkers – he invented the phrase - he advises governments on various problems. When asked what can be done about the Middle East conflict he said “Send Marmite”
His reasoning was along the lines of:- In the middle east they eat unleavened bread, unleavened bread is low in zinc, zinc deficiency is known to cause aggression, marmite is high in zinc
Now that is a thought. Then they would be happy little Vegemites...or Marmites.

No, I still call it Christmas like other people. I just don't attach any Christian feelings about it. Easter was always about dying eggs and having easter egg hunts for the kids. No Christian feelings attached to it either. I could care less what name it has.
That's reasonable. After all, both Xmas and Easter were both pagan festivals originally anyway.

Useful? At what? Surely you jest...

From what I can see he’s just a waste of good breathing air but hang on, I have it, he does produce manure both useful and verbal.

And I do appreciate the name helps me with my French pronunciation of “oiseau”
