It would be nice if you could be infected by the right wing. We'd love it if you could absorb our work ethic versus our taxes.
Our God made you, and He deserves capitalizing. I do understand your god does not.
So which is your god? Sexual deviancy? Homosexuality? Calling abortion moral? Global cooling-warming-climate change?
My God, the God of the Holy Bible, made the people that made up your god.
you rave like a north texas idiot, your god is probably the faggy aggie perry

I'm gathering a distinct impression that you have little to defend, and are therefore shouting with desperation.

My God fulfilled prophecy, and is perfect.

Rick Perry, like you and me, is imperfect. He sins, he falls short of the glory of God.

I just am glad that he's not raising my taxes to pay for your housing and food stamps.

Are you claiming that Texas can't cut spending? That there is no government waste? That our education system cannot become more efficient?

I have a proposal: The paddle used in corporal punishment will cut the education budget enough to balance our budget if reincorporated. Or we can, of course, let our teachers continue to have no defense and continue to be attacked.

Hey I'm the only one on here that has the Total BS handle so watch it! HAHAHA

Funny how you have leaped to the defense of the illegals but yet start with comments that are intended to belittle homosexuals.

All this god stuff is a load and has nothing to do with the subject at hand. Anyone that finds peace or happiness in their belief in a supreme being then good for them. This whole my god vs your god stuff is a load!

I also find it amusing that you refer to PC when it is PC that is in a very big way that is behind the illegal invasion and that drives people like your fool of a sheriff down there in Tucson to ignore criminals.

By the way I haven't heard that idiot lately, has he been muzzled by the few people that still have some self respect in that county?

Almost everywhere people are yelling at the political implications of this. Has it occured to people that there may be no political connection at all? It's quite possible that it was just a mad man with a gun who saw a big gathering of people. Then the maze of lies, cover-ups, accusations, etc. makes the whole issue a mess. Yes, a political figure was killed, amongst others. Yes, this is remarkably sad. But look at the huge disturbance a few gunshots make! It seems to me that anarchists have it easy these days. Just grab a gun, point it at someone big in politics, shoot it a couple of times, and the whole nation panics. Just like that. Sad, really. Boost your security a bit, sure, but stop with all the insults and suspisions.

I have a manifesto. Thank you. ;-)

I am a businessperson, nothing too Earth shattering. I run a contracting company and also have an LLC for rental properties. I have a whopping 9 full time employees.

I also pay over a quarter of a million a year in taxes, so I tend to be a bit conservative when I witness waste, fraud, and a growing government that steals the incentive from its citizenry.

I sincerely apologize if I offended you by my attempt to proclaim God's glory. I reread my statements, and they were arrogant and misplaced. If anything, that makes for a bad witness and I'm afraid that it would turn you away from embracing what I have come to know as the greater truth. I should realize that and not be so proud when I speak of Him.

I read and type very quickly.

I've also run my companies for now close to 20 years. Yes, I've earned a little bit of freedom from having to be on for 12 hours every day, especially in the winter.

Come Spring, sadly, I usually don't have as much time to educate the populace about work ethic and economics.
