As Rick Perry leaves the Texas Governor's mansion, Texans now have one less problem.
Statement by Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle on Rick Perry’s departure as Texas Governor Rick Perry spent 14 years as Texas Governor and never invested a day or a dollar in the future of Texas. He used the great resources of our state and the hard work of Texans to benefit himself and his political supporters. Even today, he is using our State Capitol and the goodwill of Texans as tools to advance his political ambitions. Perry’s legacy is divisive, corrupt politics, which is embodied by Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick. Their actions and intentions only benefit and insulate themselves – always looking for short-term personal gain without concern for the long-term good of Texas."

I see in my today’s paper that Texas Governor-elect Greg Abbott and the state’s Republican-dominated legislature plan to push for expanded gun rights so my friends and relatives in Texas can pack a gun on their hip like we can do here in New Mexico. Yep, we are allowed to carry our hand guns on our hips except in banks, bars, the court house and other such places. The only time I ever strap on my thirty-eight is when I go shopping at the Wal-Mart store. That place is like a Zoo. Take the other day, I was going down this aisle, and I seen this old gal coming and I saw she was a big busted and she had this “Guess What” written across the front in her Tshirt. Well, when she got close, I said “Implants?” as I went by, and she hit me! It made me so *** mad I wanted to shoot her, but I didn’t. I let her go on. That Wal-Mart store is a wacky place.

DALLAS, October 17th, 2014: Texas Governor, Rick Perry, has joined calls for an air travel ban from countries hit the hardest by Ebola. On Friday, Perry said that air travel is how Ebola crosses borders and that's how it arrived in Texas, so an air travel ban is the right policy. A Texas hospital had the first person diagnosed with the virus in the U.S., after Thomas Eric Duncan traveled from Liberia. He died last week, and two nurses involved in his care have become infected. Perry also says he's asked President Barack Obama to have Ebola cases fast-tracked to facilities better able to deal with the disease. Congressional Republic ...

I COULD NOT PASS UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO POST AN ARTICLE I CAME ACROSS TODAY. As the rest of the world sizes Barack Obama up as a man who pees sitting down, the Texas Governor, not prone to wear mom jeans, has ordered his National Guard down to the border. It seems a rather simple thing — secure the American border. But Washington would rather hold our border hostage to politics than secure it. It’s a bipartisan problem. It should be an easy situation. Just secure the border. Stop people from crossing over. Nothing is easy with Washington, however. Neither side seems to have the will to do the easy thing. The President would rather fundraise and demagogue. The Republicans would rather cower in fear of their shadows. Secure the border is common sense. Rick Perry gets it. Too bad too few in Washington do. The sad thing is that Texans are going to pay for it when Washington should be footing the bill to do its most basic function — keep the United States a sovereign nation with secure borders. That Washi ...

In the latest on the immigration crisis from the southern border the Texas Governor Rick Perry stated that due to the Obama's and the Federal Government's refusal to address the situation as Texas Governor he is doing what is in his power to protect the Texas border from this foreign invasion. Texas is spending 1.3 million dollars now per week to train up and hire state law enforcement personal. He has Texas rangers and state militia down on the border and is exhausting all resources to protect their state and all of our national sovereignty. Governor Perry and the great state of Texas deserve our support! Governor Perry is an exceptional Governor. The best state Governor of any Governor in the Union. Texas has the best economy of any state in the Union and has a GDP that is the size of the rest of the country combined.

Texans... Remember when it comes time to pick the next Texas Governor that to Sen. Wendy Davis Apparently , “One Nation, Under God,” is too Texan. While she was a city council member, Sen. Davis voted to block a measure that protected those words in your Pledge of Allegiance. Her fillibuster to allow late term abortion and this clear pandering to her far left constituency is yet another glaring example Sen. Wendy Davis’ record directly contradicts the values that has kept Texas employed, solvent and one of the last bastions of what a free America can be like... Her ideals are apparently more in line with the extreme liberal positions of her out-of-state donors. Coincidentally, she happens to be in California today, collecting checks from Hollywood liberals like Steven Spielberg.

Thanks Brandee Brown--- Texas NEEDS a Libertarian Governor!

Greg Abbott surrendered the decision about our fate to the very federal tyrant we are fighting, and we got massacred." "The most important issue of this governor's race is who will nullify unconstitutional federal acts," Kathie Glass said. The answer is clear: only Kathie Glass will lead Texas to effectively resist federal tyranny through nullification. "The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to regulate the environment. That is a state function, and Texas has environmental law and a regulatory agency that can meet our needs. The EPA is not even about the environment. Rather ...

Here is the kind of guy Bill O'Rielly does not seem to find time to be outrage about as much as any of his Black targets like Beyoncé he railed against this week. THey fawn over this guy who once sang smgs advocating underage sex. "I'm Ted Nugent, I Have 9 Children From 7 Women And I Want To Be President." This is the guy Sarah Palin calls a patriot the guy running for Texas governor invited to be with him on stage, and Bill O says can teach the republican party how yo do straight talk. It is unbelievable that Bill O constantly attempts tp lecture the Black Community on morals. What a freaking hypocritical ***

With the Texas governor's race in full general election mode, Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis and her Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, sparred on Tuesday over fair pay for women and ethics.
Abbott, Davis spar over equal pay bill, law firm The candidates for Texas governor sparred over two separate issues Tuesday, with Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis insisting her opponent won’t commit to solidifying gender pay equality into state law and Republican state Attorney General Greg Abbott firing back that Davis’ law firm might have profited from her work in the Legislature. Davis co-sponsored a bill last year ensuring that Texas law mirrored gender wage protections from the 2009 federal Lilly Ledbetter Act. The Texas measure passed with bipartisan support, but outgoing Gov. Rick Perry vetoed it, saying federal statues made state law on the subject repetitive. Davis rejects that argument, saying it would have allowed women more flexibility to sue in state courts and avoid lengthier and costlier federal discrimination cases. Abbott, meanwhile, says separate state statutes already prohibit gender discrimination, and he has refused to say if he’d veto a similar state Ledbetter Act as governor. ...

PAPPY O’DANIEL BORN IN OHIO March 11, 1890---On this day in 1890, future Texas governor and U.S. senator W. Lee (Pappy) O'Daniel was born in Malta, Ohio. He came to Texas in 1925 as sales manager of the Burrus Mill and Elevator Company in Fort Worth, manufacturer of Light Crust Flour. He took over the company's radio advertising in 1928 and hired and named the Light Crust Doughboys, the influential western swing band that featured Bob Wills and Milton Brown. O'Daniel organized his own flour company in 1935 and filed for governor in 1938. Accompanied by his band, the Hillbilly Boys, he attracted huge audiences, especially in rural areas. He won the 1938 election and was reelected in 1940. In a special U.S. Senate election in 1941, he edged Lyndon Johnson in a flurry of controversial late returns. In a desperate reelection fight the next year, O'Daniel charged that the professional politicians, the politically controlled newspapers, and the "communistic labor leader racketeers" were conspiring against him ...
The Texas governor kicks off day two with a rousing speech, bringing the crowd to its feet.
Still my favorite Texas Governor, until Wendy Davis wins this fall.
More and more people across the country are saying, “Enough!” This past weekend, thousands gathered outside our nation’s capital for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). CPAC featured a large gathering of conservative leaders. Texas Governor, Rick Perry, energized the crowd when he said . . . “My fellow conservatives, the future of this nation is upon you — it belongs to you. It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefield of ideas... We don’t have to accept recent history — we just need to change the presidency. We must elect the right kind of leaders to represent us to Washington. It is time for Washington to focus on the few things the Constitution establishes as the federal government’s role.” Governor Mike Huckabee mentioned our case involving Justina Pelletier, the 15-year old girl in Massachusetts, and then said: “I know that this nation exists by the providence of [God’s] hand, and if this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to ...
Heard a snippet of tape of a 2004 Howard Stern show on an underground podcast. A famous female rock star, whom I refuse to name, admitted that she did the Monica Lewinsky with Ted Nugent when she was 12 years old. You can ask Robert Nedelkoff what her name is :) The Lone Star Project is really going after Ted Nugent, because of the Texas Governor's race.
Wendy Davis CAN’T be trusted. Lying to Texas yesterday, today & tomorrow? Vote Greg Abbott Texas Governor.
I just think it's funny that Ted Cruz and Rick Perry are saying that it was an unfortunate use of language when asked if they would support Ted Nugent in his race for Texas Governor after calling Obama a "subhuman mongrel." Score one for that diversity agenda, GOP. You folks are on the right track. Keep up the good work.

Two of my favorite interviews during my years as a reporter: (the late) Sean MacBride - a prominent member of the Irish Republican Army, whom I'd met and interviewed in 1984. he was an elderly man even back then. He passed away a few years after I met him. My other memorable interview was in 1986 with Francis "Sissy" Farenthold - well known Texas liberal politician and former candidate for Texas Governor. She also made the short list for Vice President during the 1972 Democratic Convention when Presidential Candidate George McGovern - concerned that the nation might not be ready to accept a female VP - chose Thomas Eagleton instead (with disastrous results). I spent a whole day with Sissy at a border issue conference in Laredo, Texas - and I must've asked her a thousand questions. I came away from a very fruitful and enlightening day convinced she would have made an excellent governor and a very competent US Vice President if she'd had the chance. She was certainly more dynamic and personable than Dolph B ...
You Can't Unscramble Eggs The reason my state-centric opponents for Texas Governor are wrong-headed is because you can't unscramble eggs, meaning that our constitutional government was long ago twisted away from the will of the common interpretation to lawyer-speak. For example, at university a couple of years ago, my Political Science professor took us to the "necessary and proper" clause in Article 1. Section 8 of the U. S. Constitution. The courts have again and again ruled that the twists and turns Congress has placed on this article are legal under the U. S. Constitution. We have a host of government redirects from this one clause, from personal income taxes to public schools to Obamacare and into infinity, that will never get redefined to our liking. It's like swimming up Niagara Falls to think these interpretations can be changed by the system that created the problem. The solution is to dissolve government at all levels, non-violently, by running candidates for office who will refuse the oath of o ...

What are the Democrats doing to regain the Texas Governor's Mansion in 2014? It is disheartening to silently concede the election due to lack of strong candidates. Why is Senator Leticia Van Da Putte running for the Lt. Governor's position instead of governor? Why is Senator Kirk Watson running for re-election instead of running for governor? Where are Senator Ron West and U.S Rep Lloyd Doggett? On the Republican side, why is Attorney General Gregg Abbott given a free pass? We have more credible candidates like Patterson, David Dewhurst, Joe Strauss, John Cornyn, and Mike McCaul. What is going on in Texas?
R. Lee Wrights Finally Appears in Texas Gubernatorial Discussion. Question for Gene? Question: "Mr. Chapman, how do you and R. Lee Wrights differ in your run for Texas Governor?" Answer: Well, Lee is supportive of the "state conception of life," as Leo Tolstoy would put it, while I am a philosophical anarchist in line with Lew Rockwell, Economist Murray Rothbard, Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus Christ and the Dalai Lama, etc. If you really want to stop the Dallas Police and other police departments from killing our mentally handicapped citizens in their front yards, for example, as we see on the news month-after-month here in Texas, then what better way than to abolish the state conception of life in favor of Tolstoy's Kingdom conception of life (a libertarian stateless society driven by conscience)? Lee's postions are not publicized on his campaign website the last time I checked, so it is hard to say where else we would differ at this point. If you go to my website, you know in about 15 or 20 posts p ...
Posting this from my blog page...I'm looking for the most critical comments/ideas you can come up with. It'll only serve to help us figure this out...Thank You! "Ms. Davis’s aides and supporters said she can raise the roughly $40 million she needs to compete with Mr. Abbott." The above sentence struck a dissonant chord on my personal xylophone. It's a quote from New York Times journalist Manny Fernandez in a piece about Democratic Senator Wendy Davis, who's throwing her hat into the ring in the match for Texas Governor. The odds are slim for Davis at this point, but as we learn more about her character in the upcoming months, who knows? Anything can and will happen. Consider the fact that Davis' main opponent is Republican Greg Abbott, Texas Attorney General. Ann Richard's unpredictable win in the race for governor in 1990 was also against a Republican Texas Attorney General. This should give some buoyance to Davis, who is floating on a wave of popularity generated by her bold filibustering, which tempo ...
Wendy Davis is running for Texas Governor. She stands for bigger government, expanding ObamaCare, late-term abortion on demand, and Bloomberg-style gun control. These are things most Texas have a great distaste for. I am definitely voting for Greg Abbott!!

I'm so broken-hearted over Rick Perry deciding not to run for reelection for Texas Governor. Guess he'll run for President in 2016. Maybe he can win the nomination and choose Florida Governor Rick Scott as his running mate. Imagine the simultaneous horror and hilarity in that ticket.

May God Bless You and May God Continue to Bless Texas, Thank you.

BC-US--Perry-Texas Governor,4th Ld Texas Gov. Perry won't seek re-election in 2014 Eds: APNewsNow. Updates with not running for re-election. Will be updated. With AP Photos. WILL WEISSERT Associated Press SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Rick Perry, the longest-serving governor in Texas history, says he won't seek re-election in 2014. The staunch Christian and fiscal conservative said Monday he plans to retire. That sets up an opening for fellow Republican and longtime Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott in next year's GOP primary. The 63-year-old Perry ran for president in 2011. He's best known in that campaign for uttering "Oops" during a debate after forgetting the third of three federal agencies he wanted to eliminate if elected. Before that, Perry stirred controversy by suggesting Texas could secede from the U.S., and for shooting a coyote with a concealed handgun while jogging. Still, he's considered the most powerful Texas governor since the Civil War because he served long enough to fill every state agency with ...
Well folks, it's official. Rick Perry has announced he will not run for re-election ad Texas Governor. Tell us in the comments, what do you think is the worst mistake he made while on office? Spending $10,000/mo of OUR money on a rental mansion? Cutting billions from school funding? The HPV scandal? The Trans-Texas Corridor land grab? Or something else?
Recent events in the political arena: Texas Governor and former Presidential Candidate, who by the way couldn't remember the names of the government agencies he wanted to shut down, recently attacked Wendy Davis for "hijacking the democratic process" by filibustering for 13 hours to defeat an anti-abortion bill. He further stated that she " was the daughter of a single woman, she was a single mother herself. It's unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life should be given a chance." So upset is he that he is calling another special session to cram this anti-abortion bill down the throats of women and doctors. In the great state of Ohio, Gov. Kasich signed the budget bill, that for some inexplicable reason, contained riders that would: 1. Change the way federal money would be distributed and places Planned Parenthood on the short end of the list. 2. PROHIBIT clinics from sending patients to Public Hospitals for any special treatment including emergencies. Effectively placing th ...

Texas Governor, Rick Perry, was just on with Cavuto...said that he is going on the road this week to talk to business leaders...and tell them that if you are tired of over taxation, over regulation, and over litigation..come on down and they will. In the past few years, 30% of all the private sector jobs in this whole country have been created in Texas...and one reason is their legislature meets for 140 days every other year...and unlike DC which operates full time...they do not sit around and think of what more legislation and regulation they can hang around the neck of America at large. Way to go...God Bless Texas!!
Texas, the in welfare state. Why? Because it is illogical Rick Perry claim sovereignty, to be more clear, a self-governed state, but when a disgrace happen he cries out for federal intervention. We can ask him: What sovereignty means to you Governor Perry? For reals, Does it make sense? Not for me, why? Because if the state of Texas has no taxation on the companies brought to the state, it is never going to achieve "sovereignty" as has being the wasted word Rick Perry uses all the time, converting Texas Governor in a clownish building up in this manner the mistrust on Republican Future Governors. Also, how is it possible Rick Perry gave industry the promise that by coming here; there will not be taxation, or ambient or no acclimate regulations. The clock is clicking for the new Texas Governor. This false promise perhaps gives Republicans the chance to keep Texas a red state. Democrats have this at hand. It is absolutely absurd, this is the most "I am laughing in your face", fallacy form of politi ...

So, here's Will Cain on CNN debating other reporters and asserting that emotion has no place in debate while SCREAMING in a high pitched, anxiety-ridden voice, and using emotionally-charged words. Then there's the Texas Governor who is "disgusted" with the arguments of the people on the side he's not on. Rush Limbaugh is mocking children. And, of course, there is the NRA and their fear-inducing rhetoric. Will we ever find out way out of the environment America's political extremists continue to create? Can the respectful moderate, mainline American people of good will ever find the voice that will redeem the polarizing way we deal with differences?
Sorry it took a few days to get this one online... This editorial was published in the Belgrade News on Friday: The Sidestep I'm a graduate of Montana State University, with a degree in Music. I love music! I actually studied for the interview at my current airline in the pit orchestra of the musical "My Fair Lady." I've been reading a lot about our governments fiscal problems, and about the "fiscal cliff" that was supposedly averted this week (when it was really just, kinda delayed). I found it ironic that, right after finishing the newspaper, my iPod decided to randomly play "the Sidestep," from the musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." If you haven't seen Charles Durning's rendition of the Texas Governor, I strongly recommend a trip to YouTube! In it he plays a smooth talking politician who's focus is on obfuscation and misleading answers.
