Wendy Davis faces very long odds in the Texas governora s race. Herea s why.

Oct 4, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

So the question must be raised: How much of a chance does Davis have to accomplish what no Democrat has since 1990? In short, a very slim one.

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.
Are you talking about companies like HAUWEI, in Plano Texas???
YOu know, the one that has been spying on all of our military installations for the Chinese, since Perry invited them here???
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...
But hey, it's good for the economy, right???

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.

Right wing Tea Baggers fresh from their Mad Hatter Tea Party are stumbling about on this thread emulating what they support, for what they refer to as leadership. They have regressed in their intelligence due to republicans austerity endeavors. Still fiddle faddling with no substance or facts. Spewing derogatory ignorance emulating the intoxication of the Tea Bagger. Easily herded and corralled into their delusional existence. Forgetting the so called leaders they admire have bestowed upon our nation two Great financial collapses.{1929 and 2008} Bothe due to deregulating to advance their corruptions and swindling our Main Street USA. Latest fiasco cost our Main Street USA 6 trillion dollars. These villains is what they proclaim their admirations for???
Significant Finical Inequality in our USA has progressed under republican austerity policies since the early 1970’s. Highest acceleration to finical inequality has been addressed to the USA within the civilized developed nations.
Here in the USA in 2009 Texas rank the highest for finical inequality as Main was the lowest in accelerating inequality.
2011 CBO report illuminates that the top 1% increased their incomes by 275% after taxes over a period of 1979 to 2007. Compare this to a 60% in the middle class with gains of less than 40% to their incomes.
2012 exposes the 1% as having the same gap discrepancy to the 99% as it had in the 1920’s. Exhibiting a 20% increase to the 1% as the 99% suffered at a mere 1% gain.
Robert J. Shiller won the noble prize for economics,{2013} states his findings indicate that this increasing finical inequality within the USA is “The most important problem that we are facing now today”.
Presently populace is far more educated and interconnected than in the 1920’s. An enlighten populace recognizes the patterns of austerity’s restrictions to finical distributions and limited consumers , demands failure of the economics of that institution.
1929 and 2008 let loose the finical institutions to ravage the lower 99%. Profits and further hording of the fuel from the middle class dynamos for wealth flow and consumption. Final outcome were the “Great Depression/Recession” in our nations history.
All of the southern states suffer under an inequality that rivals the 3rd world nations of Africa. Interesting that they be “RED”. LOL the REDS have invaded the USA !
Observing Texas, with its extreme admiration for austerity polices, it becomes easily recognized their impending collapse. Reluctance and direct obstruction for the 1% to adhere to their laborer’s productivity distributions, in ratios that continues to fuel its middle class dynamos, will simply implode their debt upon themselves.
http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions.
Will Texas find a hero in their Wendy Davis. Fighting for women’s rights not to be used for the chauvinistic forced breeding of the false teachings of their Baptist spirituous false teachings? 2014 coming up ladies. Step out of the golden gilded cages of the chauvinist republicans.

Looking for a job? Educate yourself and get one. Its easy as pie.
As I predicted. Columbus Ohio is the first to publicly announce the growing gap of Primary Care Physicians. Obamacare has stimulated an employment scenario. New uninsured patients requiring primary care will be flooding the markets as they become insured on January 1st 2014. Demand for Primary Care Physicians will be in ever increasing demand, as well as all of the orbiting fields that support primary care.{Nurses, medical assistance, administrators, Maintenance personnel etc., etc.} Emergency Rooms {ER’s} will start to lose their primary care patients to “Private Primary Care Physicians”. Relieving the burden of financially costly primary care status to their ER’s. Reducing cost of Health Care.
This will take years to fill in this gap. The “Association of American Medical Colleges” estimates that within 2 years there will be a shortage of 33,000 Primary Care Physicians to rise up to 66,000 within a decade. Imagine how many will be required in the orbiting fields , that supports private Primary Care Physicians. Looking for a job?
Now doctors will start to organize their patient loads to what each one is comfortable with. Some will use retainer fee’s for the more affluent, returning us to the good old days of doctors making house calls. Suppressing waiting time for patients in their waiting rooms. Increasing an atmosphere for quality time for the one on one doctor patient scenario’s. Suppressing the unnecessary medical test , as the doctor will be more familiar with their patients. Decreasing the HMO’s intrusive bureaucratic death panel decisions. Decreasing cost to Health Care.
New York is throwing $Millions on the problem, Texas has approved for two Medical schools to provide Primary Care Physicians and Florida has extended the authority of their optometrist to prescribe additional medications, related to their fields.
Nevada is the lowest per capita for efforts to close the Primary Care Physician gap followed by Mississippi, Utah, Texas and Idaho, according to the Association Of Medical Colleges.
Presently Primary Care Resident Doctors are overwhelmed with hundreds of offers to choose from. If you don’t have a Primary Care Physician, suggest you make haste to acquire one before they close their doors to new patients.
Obamacare will provide millions of jobs and lower Health cost at greater quality.
Republicans desire the old truly tested failure of the past on this Health Care system. Promoting insurance monopolies with their ever increasing cost and dwindling quality care.
Harvard in 2009 did a study on our nations health care system. Discovered we were losing 45,000 citizens per year simply due to lack of primary care health. Ah but that’s the republican way. Lower the surplus population. Bah Humbug I say to them…
Vote for Wendy Davis 2014, your health depends on it.

HA,HA,HA can't stand the thought you have all backwards as usual. Here is one that gets her panties into a twist.
You can’t figure out the difference betwixt the two parties?? LOL put your Tea down and sober up then research. Here one example of a difference by world renown statisticians.
. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Twice they bankrupt our nation {1929 and 2008} and now Detroit. Too bad Snyder did not take Obama 101 on how to salvage a country from bankruptcy. So much for your delusional TRUTH FACTS. Your all B.S.

Typical. No facts no substance simple dysfunctional rhetoric and blah, blah just like your hero Rush. Still raising funds for your lords and masters of the 1%?
What Money can buy. Corrupting of facts to the populist. Deceiving them to vote for regression . Our mythical status as the leader of the free world has tumbled down with the ever increasing corrosion. Skewing the voters to be adaptable for corralling. Sheep ready for the clipping. All of their wooly wealth to service the owners. Observe the corral under construction.
Health Care policies has been evaluated by the “World Bank” No doubt to determine our risk factors.
Medicaid programs have been scaled back.{ Republicans “Poison Pill” of 2005} as one example. Increasing our losses to health issues.“Especially among the elderly and the impoverished. Life expectancy in the USA is 78 years, lower than Japan’s 83 years or Australia’s or Israel’s 82 years…. 2009 “World Bank” USA ranked USA fortieth overall, just below Cuba.
Infant and maternal mortality rate in USA is greater than Cuba, Belarus, Malaysia, to name a few. Impoverished USA civilians have a 10% lower life expectancy than those at the top.
1st in overall health care expenditure and
2nd in total health expenditure as % of GDP...but
37TH in the WHO ranking of the world’s health system performance...and
72nd in overall level of health!
44th of 224 countries in Infant mortality
121st of 223 countries in overall death rate
50th of 224 countries in life expectancy
Sources include the CIA Fact Book, the World Health Organization, and the United Health Foundation
