Gov. Perry turned down quite a bit of ARR Act also..too many strings attached..NONE went into the budget as you losers claimed. That was against the law...however my town got a new city hall..and since Texas puts in 240 billion into the federal coffers each year they should get some in return. LMAO
NEW YORK'S hispanic population uninsured at 23%...you don't have a fkn point, boy.
The statistics in Texas are also for hispanics.....your population being smaller...you have more uninsured...DUH
California has 22% uninsured...
Nevada has 25%, Florida has 25%...your fkn point is useless..but it's good propaganda for the socialists because Texas doesn't vote for oblumber or kiss his ass as your state loves to do.."Throw us more money!" LMAO
Texas 8 billion surplus projected for 2014. New York..more red ink.
First, let's start with Texas and the uninsured- the 25%ratio is for AL OF THE POPULATION - not jut the Hispanic population - let's see your figures, since I've already provided you with multiple links from various sources correlating exactly what the facts are in your state.

Next, Texas puts less dollars into the federal system than you receive;

" The citizens of Texas certainly pay into the federal government, but multiple studies have found that they get even more in return. Over a 25 year period, Texans have, on average, received more in federal money than they have paid into the system. In 2009, for example, the people of Texas paid $163 billion in federal taxes, and in return they received $224 billion from the federal government in the form block grants, Medicare and Medicaid aid, and retirement and disability assistance. In other words, the state of Texas made a $61 billion profit off the federal government in 2009. If they really did secede, the state of Texas would either have to stop giving their elderly citizens health care, or raise taxes to make up for the billions they would lose in federal citizens."

Next, how much of the ARRI actually went to fix Texas's fiscal woes?

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry likes to tell Washington to stop meddling in state affairs. He vocally opposed the Obama administration's 2009 stimulus program to spur the economy and assist cash-strapped states.

Perry also likes to trumpet that his state balanced its budget in 2009, while keeping billions in its rainy day fund.

But he couldn't have done that without a lot of help from ... guess where? Washington.

Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Even budget deficits are bigger in Texas

Texas, which crafts a budget every two years, was facing a $6.6 billion shortfall for its 2010-2011 fiscal years. It plugged nearly all of that deficit with $6.4 billion in Recovery Act money, allowing it to leave its $9.1 billion rainy day fund untouched.

"Stimulus was very helpful in getting them through the last few years," said Brian Sigritz, director of state fiscal studies for the National Association of State Budget Officers, said of Texas."

LIAR-- Martin already had an extensive criminal history for his young age. He was also a gang member from Miami Gardens which is a nortorious gang and drug infested project. If he hadn`t joined the gang there, they would have probably killed him. It`s a project where white people don`t dare to go for fear of death.
You should get your facts straight before running your racist propaganda bullsh-t.
If you can't prove it azzhole, then YOU are the liar.

Let's see this EXTENSIVE criminal history big mouth.

Which leads to the next truth. The progressive movement as resources dwindle will collapse upon itself. Gay folks are blinded by the advances in perceived civil rights. But they would be killed in a second from many in their progressive party. Civility is a thin veneer. A 19 year old semi illiterate black woman on the stand showed just a glimpse of the truth from the hood. And the progressives through the media have tried mightily to clean her up. Trillions and trillions of dollars and this is what we get. Bon appetit!

Is not a child molester simply a child molester, regardless whether he may have gay tendencies or not?

Lesson learned, never bring a bag of skittles to a gun fight.

At least we will not have to pay for TM attorneys and to house him in a prison for the road he was going down. It is cheaper to kill thugs then to try to take care of them.

Your Zimmerman-type assumption is ignorant and unamerikkan as you have no idea - whatsoever - how Mr. Martin would have conducted his life.

Sadly, we will never know as Mr. Martin was killed.

You are wrong, dearie, the amerikkkkan voters were smart enough to have no confidence in the republicant duo of clowns and voted in this president for a second term.

Some reasons why you should find better candidates so you are no longer the "stupid party" (Jindal) and "Republican Party has some soul-searching to do" (McCain) and "What happened to the Republican Party that I joined? The party where conservative presidential candidate Barry Goldwater felt women should have the right to control their own destiny?"

St. Elmo's fire is reported to have been seen during the Siege of Constantinople by the Ottoman Empire in 1453. It reportedly was seen emitting from the top of the Hippodrome. The Byzantines attributed it to a sign that the Christian God would soon come and destroy the conquering Muslim army. According to George Sphrantzes, it disappeared just days before Constantinople fell, ending the Byzantine Empire.

Barrack HUSSEIN Obama is playing the racist card – AGAIN !
He was born and raised a muslim racist in Kenya Africa.
.

HURRAH FOR SEÑOR ZIMMERMANN ….
….. OUR AMERICAN-MEXICAN HERO !!!!

The communist media crucified this American-Mexican who happens to have the last name of an Anglo. Had his name been Alffredo Garcia Pedro Hernandez Guitarez,the media would have ignored him.

The jury judged Señor Zimmermann a Hero !!!!!
A well deserved verdict!
Patriots donated over 26 Million dollars to his defense.

At the time Martin was justifiably killed, he was 17 years old, stood 6 foot and 2 inches tall, weighed 175 pound, and had tattoos from his feet to his ugly face.
His arrest record was lengthy.
The racist media published a photo of the kid when he was 11 years old !

At 2 o’clock in the morning he was casing a higher classed neighborhood, most likely to commit another crime, possibly a rape, mugging or worse.
He accosted Patriot Zimmerman in the performance of Señor Zimmermann’s duties as an armed guard at the gated community.
Martin tried to injure or kill him.
In self defense, Señor Zimmerman shot and killed the gang banger while he was wearing his beloved hoody.

Señor Zimmermann rid the world of just another gang banger, a welfare recipient, AND the sperm donor of future welfare recipients and future gang bangers.

JUSTICE WAS SERVED AND GOOD RIDDANCE !!!

The ghetto crowd is looking for an excuse to riot, to pillage, to rob, rape, and to murder people.
In reality they care less what happened to Martin.

**********

According to the likes of hair-lipped Jessie Jackson and pitbull face & ebonics expert, Maxine Waters………..
……Trayvon was a fine young and innocent boy who had never done anything wrong in his life.
Trayvon was on his way to his grandparents’ house for milk and cookies
when that racist Zimmermann killed him just because he was black.
Young Trayvon had ambitions to become a doctor or a lawyer.
He also mentioned he wanted to be an astronaut

Where were the protests? There was supposed to be one in Chicago, and one in Joliet, and Morris last Saturday. We passed through all three places, and saw nothing. It was just before noon. Did anyone see anything?

All I have to say is too bad it WASNT you Obama. I am smart enough to know that you are not the reason our country is in the shape it's in. You took over a mess, but the worst thing you can do is keep fanning the flames on racism. We need someone in office with common sense.
