All I can say is, "Thank you, Perry for crystalizing our understanding of vulture capitalism. Now I too am a CONVERT to Bishop Romney!"

<quoted text>In 1981 was arrested and convicted of robbing a check cashing place in Kingfisher, Ok. I did not rob that place, and have no idea who did it. I was sentenced to eight years in prison and done the full sentence in McAlester, Ok. I WAS NOT GUILTY!
However, I WAS guilty of robbing places in Tulsa, Okla City, Anadarko and other cities in OK and Tex and got clean away with them. Would you call that a push, or was I a wrongfully imprisoned VICTIM? If I were exonerated do you think I would deserve compensation for my lost time? Sort of makes you ponder, doesn't it?
If it were true it would not be a push, in a false conviction how would they know you deserved it anyway. A false conviction is a problem with the system not the criminal.

The initial conviction I referred to in the post was one where not only was the guy not guilty but a crime did not even occur. The crime was arson with 2 fatalities but the fire turned out to be accidental so no crime was committed at all .

"IF" God truly existed in the first place.
You really believe he/she/it/whatever, would vote for a guy who has violated our unalienable rights, given to us by our creator?
let's take a look at the rights we have lost thanks to Obama. Remember our unalienable rights.
AMENDMENT IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.(The TSA, the NDAA, and the Patriot Act extension)
AMENDMENT V
be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.(the Patriot Act Extension, NDAA, and the latest farm land EO he signed given the executive branch the authority to seize land)
AMENDMENT VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.(the assasination of Anwar Al-Awaki. No matter what they say of his deeds, he was still an American citizen. Even Obama's buddy Bill Ayers was considered a terrorist for the bombings the weather underground did. Was Bill Ayers killed? Nope)
AMENDMENT X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.(Obamacare)
U don't Blieve God existed or U believe Jesus born again!!! wanna C god!!!;-000h, buy a 787Dreamliner from Lindsay Graham;-00

I see. You're right in that sense.

God was f'ing with their minds.

I'm sure if we all think back there was an instance where God did it to us, too.

I think actually that voters will forgive an isolated "oops" moment.

What does that have to do with lunkhead Perry's obvious lack of intelligence, knowledge, speaking skills, ability to use pain killers in a non intrusive manner, theocratic obsession or, finally, his repeated brain farts?

Funny that his stances on immigration and vaccinating young girls against HPV rules him out with large swaths of the feral right wing and so now these xstain fundies are left with a MA Mormon rather than a TX moron.
