We have counties bigger economically than your whole friggen state, boy. Back to the ripple and make it a double.
Wendy Davis was a very crooked lawyer sticking it to poor hispanic groups before she became a senator.
They're still pissed.
Adios.
Yep! Just keep leading America in executions and uninsured poverty-stricken people. My two farts are smarter than Rick Perry. For you, one will do.

I guess no one told you about Anita Perry....
You probably didn't get the memo.
Yep....women REALLY do want to make choices about their own reproduction, despite what Gov. GOodhair and his tea baggin buy-bull thumpin' ninnyhammers think!
Here's what you don't seem to grasp re: the successful election of Wendy Davis for Govenor of Texas:
WOMEN VOTE....and they especially vote when their rights are infringed, multilated, bent, or otherwise tampered with. WOMEN have been known to CHANGE constitutional law in their favor.
Anita Perry, your REPUBLICAN governor's wife just proved to the whole world this week that estrogen is thicker than politics....HA!
Good luck with your belief....
See you on voting day....I'm casting mine for Wendy!

Adios.
I guess denying nearly 300,000 poor hispanic women access to birth control, well woman checks, and pregnancy services isn't "sticking it to poor hispanics," in your mind, eh?
Wow! Gov. Goodhair must have a really good brand of Koolaid that you regularly indulge.
Also, would you mind sourcing your Statment: "Wendy Davis....crooked lawyer...poor hispanics...?"
I am curious where you determined this "truth".
At least she was able to make it through a prestigious university with a successful degree....
That's more than Goodhair or W. before him could really claim...
Goodhair has alot in common with Palin in that regard....maybe between the two of them, they can actually find a foreign country on a map!
You do realize that GOv. Goodhair has allowed the same company, via his cronies and the state legislature , that runs Texas Medicaid to also now run our toll roads? XEROX CORPORATION....
Here's what you need to know about TEXAS MEDICAID....for every dollar allocated for the medical needs of the poor, 5 dollars are spent implementing the process for those people to receive services....THIS IS YOUR TAXPAYING DOLLARS at work...and for which XEROX makes BILLIONS every year...and will be making even more...
Their shadow company located in NOrth Austin has made a shambles of the Medicaid system...THIS IS YOUR govenor/party at work sunshine...
Speaking of crooked lawyers....( cough*)

Fortunately the Texas Board of Education and the majority of elected officials agree with me and other patriotic Texans and will be able to keep this sniveling,whining, anti-gun woman from being elected and continue to discredit the sickening evolution theory being pushed by the Godless infidels in Austin; they are comparable to a benign cancer that must be isolated, contained and "treated" to prevent it from spreading.

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.

Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

"Welcome to the club," said Robert Laszewksi, a prominent health care consultant and president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates in Virginia.

California is largest in uninsured, dkhead.
TX, largest and biggest economic boom in the USA, adding those to insurance list with largest job growth in the country.
Bush and Perry built that..not oblumber. LMAO
Davis.....pro baby killer, anti-gun and first thing out of her big mouth was "we need to spend more and "infrastructer.." Yawn...don't you liberals have anything original? LMAO She's going to get slaughtered and embarrassed. She's not even projected to win back her senate seat in her district. DUH
Texas is building more infrastructer than most states combined.
Here's your sign: http://rlv.zcache.es/activist_liberal_liar_de...
Your "booming" economy is a bunch of part time minimum wage jobs that do not come with insurance. Texas is indeed, right there at the top of the list of uninsured.

You are the classic example of why Puritans left England....and why our constitution defends the separation of CHURCH from STATE.....
I don't care if the damn governor dresses up in a white robe and prances around waiting for the second coming....YOUR RELIGION does not belong in the public school system. Not EVERYONE embraces your narrow viewpoint....thank goddess....
And not everyone is advocating violence towards those who DON"T embrace your views...

One day the literal and real fight will start minus the lawyers and the courts. God will be put back into the schools where he belongs and infidels, apostates and heretics like you will be dealt with. We both know it's coming, we just don't know when.

Sandy sure has her work cut out for her. Here amongst the ravages of another fiasco of leadership that has led the state into the quagmire of majestic delusions.
Supported by republicans ambitions to weaken education . Thus the constituents will not be able to fathom the myth from the lie. A simple Taliban/Christian tactic.
Bodily to go forth and proclaim the superiority of chauvinism to their women folk. Subjugating them to second or lower class citizens. Texan womenfolk, as Islamic womenfolk, have been given a challenge which the chauvinist knows that his womenfolk lack the education to comprehend their status.
Forced breeding is nothing new. It has been used thousands of times by dictators to furnish and embellish his herd. All with the sanctimonious rebel rousing messiah preachers blessings.
Such are the ways of the republican lone star terrorist.

SOOOO, let me understand your "logic"...( cough cough)

YOU believe in shooting people who don't subscribe to your brand X religion??? THe one that embraces the Prince of Peace, Love THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF, GOD IS LOVE, religion???
So, you load up your rifle, and what??? shoot atheists? Mormons? Jews? Buddhists? Wiccans???
IS THIS your religion/belief?

All that "one day, Jesus is coming back" crap is so pathetic.
If you even did a day of research on the book of revelations, you might be surprised to find out that the ANTICHRIST or the word ANTICHRIST doesn't even appear in the book of revelations, and isn't even a PERSON...
It is only used one time in the new testament, and refers in context to people who are ANTI-CHRISTIAN...ie, PHARISEE, etc. It has no bearing on the "end times".
As for the book of revelations....
ahem...
It was only included in the Canon at the council of nicea after MUCH debate and politicizing. It's not even certain that it is 'biblical', in that it was written long after the other books were written, and in a style that was unlike any of the apostolic writings. In addition, the author is not conclusive. It could have been JK Rowling in a former lifetime, for all you know. There is no proof of any of it....
Some of the new testament can be coorborated with historical documentation of the times, ie, yes there really was a Jesus, and yes he had follower, and yes many were crucified or held in prison their whole lives. Some of what is found in the new testament is also found in the old....
HOWEVER, plagarism abounds....even in pre-King James, and more so since...
You might want to put aside your weaponry, and do some real serious study of the book you say you believe in. Not everything you read is 100% true, eventhough a whole INDUSTRY has been built on it's 'truth'.
OR,
You can remain ignorant, uniformed, and stupid the rest of your life, and wonder why you still aren't raptured....{pssst! it's not going to happen....it's ALLEGORICAL!}

You know, the company that DIDN"T hire any TEXANS, but brought over all their own people, and received BIG TAX BREAKS from TEXAS to build and do 'business' here...

Blacks are losing jobs to Mexicans, and Wendy Davis is for helping more Mexicans have abortions I hear, so she cannot be all bad, since that might slow the rate at which they breed and take more jobs from the Black Community.

Texas once again exposes its Gopy appreciation of intelligence. Preferring to have student text books to teach the hocus-pocus science of their zealot Baptist messiahs. Little wonder that advanced progressive corporations are passing by Texas without the slightest interest to invest in this republican superstitious lone star.
How is it that this denial of evolution is predominated in the southern tiers of our nation? Northern tier has its localities of derogatory intelligence as well. Presently they seem to be flourishing in regions of the zealous Baptist, Evanggenelis, Mormon, etc., etc.. regions of superstitions.
Educating their off springs with dysfunctional knowledge which will soon render them incompetent to survive within a world of evolving higher intelligence. Providing an example of a Darwin evolutionary model. The weakly educated, to be overpowered by the natural order of the universe.
Alas poor Texas is being punished, by the very gods they have conjured up, with droughts, fire and brimstone-{Toxic Radioactive Waste Site}- Wallowing ever further into another republican financial great recession for their near future.
Will a hero rise up and haul Texas out of the desperate failures of the republicans ideologies? Could that someone be Wendy Davis? Denouncing the false teachings of the zealots and denouncing their “Forced Breeding” majestic delusions. Here in a state that has corralled their herds with their Baptist riders in the skies.
