Rick Perry

Rick Perry

* AUSTIN - Several members of the Grand Jury that indicted Gov. Rick Perry denied their deliberations were tainted by politics Tuesday and said they were offended by the governor, his lawyers and his supporters casting their decision as based on anything other than the law.* Quote:Grand jurors who indicted Rick Perry break law, violate secrecy of proceedings By Thomas Lifson The Travis County, Texas Grand Jury that indicted Governor Rick Perry is self-discrediting. Jurors have violated Texas law by speaking about Grand Jury proceedings to a newspaper, instead of keeping silent, as they are required by law to do. Bryan Preston of PJ Media reports: By Texas law, grand jurors are not supposed to talk to the media about their cases. That did not stop several of the Gov. Perry grand jurors from breaking the law, specifically, talking to the Houston Chronicle. The jury, which met weekly for four months, “really tried to keep an open mind and come to a fair decision given all the testimony that we heard,” said Janna Bessin, one of the 12 Travis County residents appointed to serve on the Grand Jury. “It’s too bad,” Bessin said, calling the criticism unfair. “But I guess that his side’s job – to really spin it.” In addition to Ms. Bessin, another grand juror named Rh ...* Remember Tom Delay? Indicted by an Austin Grand Jury? Not only was he exonerated, but the court found that not only did the alleged evidence not support the charge, the law was not applicable to the alleged evidence. Austin Democrats have no respect for the rule of law except as a bludgeon for their political enemies. (Rick Perry)* Rick Perry stands by his actions that earned him a Grand Jury indictment and fires back at accusations before his booking.* A female Democrat Party activist and party member was on the Grand Jury that indicted Rick Perry, and she's out singing a sweet song and just bragging about it, how cool it is.* Reading an article about the Rick Perry indictment reminded me that this the state of Rep Sheila Jackson Lee .* In a District Judge was arrested for drunk driving.

Goodness me :-(* WHAT A SLEEPLESS PAST WEEK IVE SPENT...Im spent. As is my usual Im good for ohhh 6 maybe 7 hours of sleep on any given night. Not so for these past few days. Im not blaming the extra super bigness that we've been seeing of our moon- its the New Moon that generally give me cyclic unrest. & Ive been having these ridiculous nacht-ponies. The only one apparently prevelant enough to have total recall about had, of all things, to do with that horror of a congregation devout to the misguided ramblings of Westborough Baptist Church -the members of which are certafiably stupid w/looniousessness..CHECK IT OUT-those nuts were bent to kill me in this horrendous bad dream! & I heard the twitiots were planning to protest Robin Williams funeral services. Why? Is it because of his role in Birdcage? Did Mrs Doubtfire rankle their hairs? - & the passage of the lovely Lauren Bacall - husky of voice, sultry with allure. Play it again Sam- she had ol' Bogart for awhile. Then yesterday I hear Jay Adams had some issues w/his he ...* According to Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams was the archetype of which sport ??? Skateboarding* Jay Adams was not the greatest pool skater, nor was he the greatest bank skater, or the greatest slalom skater or the greatest freestyler. The fact is, Jay Adams’ contribution to skateboarding defies description or category. Jay Adams is probably not the greatest skater of all time, but I can say without fear of being wrong that he is clearly the archetype of modern-day skateboarding. Archetype defined means an original pattern or model, a prototype. Prototype defined means the first thing or being of its kind. He’s the real thing, an original seed, the original virus that infected all of us. He was beyond comparison. To this day I haven’t witnessed any skater more vital, more dynamic, more fun to watch, more unpredictable, and more spontaneous in his approach than Jay. There are not enough superlatives to describe him. - Stacy Peralta

Lame. The Oakland Raiders have the Black Hole. The Cleveland Browns have the Dog Pound. Duke basketball has the Cameron Crazies. And Notre Dame football has the Leprachaun Legion. If were going to stick with American Outlaws, consider me to be Wyatt Erp.* who do you think will surprise this Notre Dame football season? My pick is, Durham Smythe, tight end void* Just met this guy who said he's hooking me up with Michigan vs Notre Dame football tickets. *** *** yeahh.* From what I understand Notre Dame football even though it is independent has some sort of partial membership to the ACC where they play 5 games a year. This is one of the reasons they are treated with much more respect than BYU. It looks as if BYU will not be joining any of the big conferences any time soon but what if they try to swing a similar deal with the PAC12 or BIG12? Would it be worth it and could it be possible?* Chillen in wrigleyville with some Notre Dame football players.I think my brother, Dave Cline, would be proud!
