Rick Perry Considers Presidential Run - Where is His Rent Boy?

This needs to be nipped in the bud.  Pretty boy Rick Perry has said he is considering a 2012 run for president .  Texas has already foisted one idiot on the US Presidency, we must not send another!

Perry has proven to be a governor deeply in the pocket of business with a very conservative agenda.  Where is that "rent boy" who was rumored to be carrying on with Perry now? Sadly there is nothing like a sex scandal to take the wind out of a candidate's sails.

Tennessee Senate Passes "Don't Say Gay" Bill

If ignorance is bliss, Tennessee must be slap-happy!  Th Tennessee Senate, apparently tired of doing real work, wrangled with the wording of a bill designed to prevent teaching of homosexuality in schools.  never mind that the schools don't "teach homosexuality" now, in Tennessee that makes no difference. From the Christian Post:
The original bill, backed by Republican Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), prohibited the teaching of or furnishing of materials on human sexuality other than heterosexuality in public school grades K-8.

But because some of Campfield’s colleagues were uncomfortable with the language used in the proposed legislation, an amendment was written, limiting any instruction or material made available or provided to a public elementary or middle school exclusively to “age-appropriate natural human reproduction science,” according to The Associated Press.
Silliness in the Tennessee legislature knows no limit... First they debated banning Sharia Law, a religious law that never has been the basis of any legislation in the state and now this.  In the words of my grandfather who was born in Tennessee, "them damned piss-ants ain't got nothin' better to do!"  Amen Pawpaw, amen.

Rick Perry Signs Manditory Sonogram Bill - Police State Tampering With Womens Health

This from Think Progress, I am too disgusted with our state to comment:
Effective Sept. 1, doctors in Texas must perform sonograms before abortions, must describe the presence of internal organs or limbs and must make the fetal heartbeat audible. [...]
“Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy we all must work together to prevent, and I commend Rep. Miller and Sen. Patrick for their hard work on this significant legislation,” Governor Perry said.
Meanwhile, the Texas House recently voted to slash $61 million from the state’s family-planning budget, which estimates say will result in an additional 28,000 unwanted pregnancies and 13,000 births in the state every year. Two hundred teenage girls in Texas become pregnant every day.

Tornado Damage in Metroplex - Dallas News Covers Divots on Golf Course!

And you wonder why the local paper is losing subscribers?  Well, take a look at the home page of their web site the morning after tornadoes hit the Metroplex.  Top story - 4,000 divots in golf course?

Meanwhile in other news a man was found dead in storm debris in Oak Lawn....

Our city would be a poorer place if the Dallas News goes away, simply because we need a local source for local news, but dang it sure makes me miss the Dallas Times Herald.

Rick "Frothy Mix" Santorum - Presidental Candidate 2012?

Looks like Mr. Frothy Mix is going to make it official and toss his hat in the ring for the GOP presidential nomination.  He will join a decreasing pool of candidates as the more high profile folks like Donald Trump have dropped out and the politically hot Newt Gingrich self destructed by criticizing fellow Republican Ryan for his budget plan.

Now if we can just keep the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is Santorum talking, he is sure to stick his foot into his mouth and self destruct as well.
