Four more years! I don't think Perry has a snowball's chance in hell (or today in Oklahoma, take your pick) of becoming POTUS. He could probably win the GOP nomination, which is a truly sad reflection of the folks who will vote in the primaries.

Teabag nation is also probably pretty happy with Perry's pre-New Deal philosophy of the social contract.

Perry did sign that anti-abortion pledge today.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has just signed the controversial Susan B. Anthony anti-abortion pledge, vowing to nominate strict constructionist judges, “select only pro-life appointees for relevant Cabinet and Executive Branch positions,” push for defunding Planned Parenthood and other taxpayer-supported abortion providers, and to sign a Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

It's no wonder he's their new darling - he panders better than the lot of them.

Gut feelings do not always reflect reality. Obama and the Democrats have a lot of hard work ahead of them. This is going to be a long and difficult campaign. It's not over until election day. Nothing, absolutely nothing, should be taken for granted. To do so will only breed to complacency and apathy.

Perry is a predatory hypocrite. He has not received this support by disguising that fact, but by appealing to a segment of the population that is composed largely of predatory hypocrites.

Perry:

"And there you have it: the vaunted New Deal did not bring the country out of the Great Depression, but the bigger problem now is that its numerous programs never died, and like a bad disease, they have spread. The impact of the New Deal is staggering not just because of the number of programs but also because of their scope. Certain of these programs massively altered the relationship between Americans and their government with respect to critical aspect of our lives, violently tossing aside any respect for our founding principles of federalism and limited government.

By far the best example of this is Social Security."

Perry thinks the New Deal, including and especially universal programs like Social Security, are a bad disease.

Mitt's ego may have to take back seat to just having a shot at the White House. Because if he's trailing Perry, going into the convention, then there's no chance they're going to pick him to top the ticket. He'll either have to settle for VP or take a hike.

35 elizajane  Wed, Aug 24, 2011 1:12:55pm

Unfortunately, this is not the tea party base speaking. The most support-switchers have come from Romney. These are people who are looking for somebody who can beat Obama and have decided that it's Perry, not Romney. They have decided this, I assume, not because they think that Perry will appeal to Independents like Romney could, but because they think he will wage a ruthless, scorched-earth campaign against Obama that will make the swift-boaters look like rank amateurs.

This prospect fills me with dread and despair. Everything I like least about America and its politics could consume the coming year. Not to mention what would happen if they win.

We can't reform this witches cauldron of a "GOP base" by appealing to their better natures. They don't have any. Call them out on their real agenda, greed and power, vicarious and otherwise. Their prophet of profit, David Barton, has supplied plenty of material all by himself. I think we can also safely ignore their constant yammering about "second amendment solutions." Except for a few kooks who don't get what it is really about, they don't have the guts for such a solution or anything like it. What small business owner or corporate climber is going to risk it all in the name of repealing the minimum wage or abolishing the EPA?

Think McCain/Palin, and it begins to make sense. A pure Tea ticket is DOA, no matter how they spin it. Perry is the textbook definition of a bullshit artist, but even he can't play himself off as solidly on both sides of the political aisle. No, if the GOP wants to stand a real chance of defeating Obama, they're gonna have to jury-rig a "balanced" ticket yet again.

47 engineer cat  Wed, Aug 24, 2011 1:20:24pm

perry, i guess, focusses the anti-romney, radical right vote

party primaries, and parties for that matter, are not part of the constitution, and therefore there is no contitutional guarantee that the "will of the electorate" be respected in them

the party establishment clearly wants romney to be the nominee, and now that perry is in the race, the teabag faction knows who it will insist on. this deathmatch, with neither side finding the the other's candidate remotely acceptable, should dominate the next 12 months

the party establishment has ways of arranging a 'majority' vote in the primaries for romney, unless the teabaggers turn out to be so overwhelming that perry cannot be stopped

i've been waiting for the republican party to split into two mutually hostile factions for years. will perry's entry cause it to happen?

During the Civil War, the slave-owning elites duped the poor white populace into fighting the battle. They did it with a lot of verbiage and emotion about states rights, southern pride, and Yankee materialism, as well as playing off the deeply ingrained bigotry common to all semi-literate populations.
It's occurred to me that today's tea party politicians are the spiritual descendents of those slave-owning elites, trying to induce the poor and ignorant to fight their greed-driven battles. In truth, though, the situations are not the same. If the tea party base is really duped at all, it is not by the superficial ideology of family values or (again) states rights. They have been duped into identifying themselves with the power they see in the hypocrisy and greed of their leaders. It is their way of saying, "yeah, I'm a player too."

If this seems unduly harsh, just remember that it is a standard meme of the tea party and the GOP in general that the opposing base is composed of lunatics, lazy welfare queens, nefarious socialist plotters, libertines, and common criminals.

That's where the ignorance part comes in. They actually believe the market and privatizaton would provide them with a cushier retirement.

Privatization of SS only looked good to people during a booming stock market (aka the Clinton years). A lot of people who would have been for it then sobered up when they watched their mutual fund investments take a tumble in recent years.

The rebels will be led by special forces from Gulf nations, such as Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, which spearheaded yesterday's final assault on the dictator's Bab al-Aziziya compound.

It is known that the Qataris were first into Colonel Gaddafi's private residence in the complex, to look for computers and sensitive documents. The Gulf states have offered their forces because, in the words of one of their officers, "this is an Arab matter and it is right that Arab allies should come to the aid of the Libyans."

Hmm.

Journalists in Hotel Are Free

“Rixos crisis ends. All journalists are out!,” Matthew Chance, a CNN correspondent, tweeted as he and the others were allowed to depart the hotel with the aid of Red Cross workers who took them away. The journalists had been held captive there since the weekend, when rebel forces first invaded Tripoli in what has proved to be a decisive turn in the six-month-old conflict.

Mr. Chance said after the release that the loyalists, having realized that their leader’s grip on power had dissolved, “essentially just capitulated.”

The elation at the Rixos news was tempered later in the day, however, with word that four Italian journalists had been abducted outside of Tripoli and their driver killed. Italian consular officials said they had been in contact with the journalists, who were being held by Qaddafi loyalists at an unspecified location inside the Libyan capital.

SAS leads hunt for Gaddafi


As a £1 million bounty was placed on Gaddafi’s head, soldiers from 22 SAS Regiment began guiding rebel soldiers after being ordered in by David Cameron.

For the first time, defence sources have confirmed that the SAS has been in Libya for several weeks, and played a key role in co-ordinating the fall of Tripoli.

With the majority of the capital now in rebel hands, the SAS soldiers, who have been dressed in Arab civilian clothing and carrying the same weapons as the rebels, have been ordered to switch their focus to the search for Gaddafi, who has been on the run since his fortified headquarters was captured on Tuesday.

Welfare drug-testing yields 2 percent positive results

TALLAHASSEE --

Since the state began testing welfare applicants for drugs in July, about 2 percent have tested positive, preliminary data shows.

Ninety-six percent proved to be drug free -- leaving the state on the hook to reimburse the cost of their tests.

Net savings to the state: $3,400 to $5,000 annually on one month’s worth of rejected applicants. Over 12 months, the money saved on all rejected applicants would add up to $40,800 to $60,000 for a program that state analysts have predicted will cost $178 million this fiscal year.

Of course, it also bears mentioning that Rick Scott's family members have financial interest in several of the drug-testing facilities involved.

Rabbi blames quake on homosexuals

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, an ally of the National Organization for Marriage who last month blamed the murder of an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy on the passage of marriage equality in NY, has posted a new video in which he claims yesterday's earthquake on the east coast was because God is angry about homosexuality.

Says Levin: "We saw today an earthquake. The Jerusalem Talmud tells us that one of the reasons that God brings earthquakes to the world is because of the transgressions of homosexuality. The Talmud states, 'You have shaken your male member in a place where it doesn't belong. I too, will shake the earth.'"

German Police Probe Puzzling Kidnap Attempt

A homemade grenade, a telephone booth, and 113 fire extinguishers were found in a Hamburg apartment during an investigation into a suspected kidnapping, say German police.

Officers remained on the scene Wednesday, five days after the alleged victim — a 26-year-old Israeli woman — escaped.

Police said a 30-year old German man forced the woman — an acquaintance, but not a close friend — to go to his mezzanine apartment at gunpoint last Friday evening. She escaped around three hours later by jumping out of the window, over which the suspect had stretched barbed wire.

Neighbors called police, and the man was arrested. Police said he was armed with a gun and a hand-grenade filled with a homemade explosive substance.

Over the following days, police found a telephone booth in the apartment, which was taken away Tuesday, along with 113 fire extinguishers, most of them in the cellar — nine with traces of the homemade explosive on their exterior.

Ruling bans sale of medical marijuana in Michigan
[Link: www.southbendtribune.com...]


Local prosecutors lauded a Michigan appeals court decision today ruling that medical marijuana cannot be sold through private shops, essentially banning all sales of pot and the businesses trying to make a profit from it.

The three-judge panel ruled on a case from Isabella County, where medical marijuana cardholders sold pot to each other through a dispensary called Compassionate Apothecary in Mount Pleasant. The court ruled that dispensaries violate the state's public health code of not allowing for such places, as well as the 2008 medical marijuana law passed by the voters.

Only cardholders or their registered primary caregiver will be allowed to grow marijuana. The court held that the law allowed for delivery and transfer of marijuana, but not the sale of it.

Sheesh! Just saw that Lubbock has raised its water meter charge to $30 a month. That is the minimum you have to pay for water service. It was $7.50 just ten years ago. Increases in volume rates and yet another meter rate increase are planned for next year and again in 2014. This all has to do with the incredibly ill-advised Lake Alan Henry project. This was supposed to ensure Lubbock's future water supply but it has been a long-running saga of delays and overruns. The worst problem is that the lake is 1000 feet lower in elevation than the city, not to mention being 65 miles away. This means they will have to pump roughly 25,000 tons of water uphill that far every day. It is equivalent to raising an aircraft carrier to the top of the Empire State Building on a daily basis.

Hey, Safeway. We don't have those here in OK. No national grocery chains at all, but Whole Foods is opening this fall. I submitted an application, but haven't heard anything yet.

You can fill out Whole Foods applications online, and now you can say you have grocery store experience...if there's a Whole Foods in your area, of course.

Racial Gap In Homeownership Widens In U.S. Slump

Price George's is one of the few counties that became wealthier as they became more black. Many black residents came here from Washington, D.C., in the 1980s and '90s, when the capital was poorer and more dangerous. In more recent years, as D.C. has whitened at a faster clip, some say poorer blacks have been pushed into Prince George's, creating tensions with its more affluent, longtime residents.

The county was also targeted heavily by subprime lenders — more so than any other county in Maryland, according to state housing data. More mortgage fraud cases have resulted in convictions here than in any other county in Maryland, according to the State's Attorney's Office for Prince George's County. A special mortgage fraud office was set up here several years ago because of concerns about the high number of subprime mortgages being pushed in the county.

One fraud scheme, which involved a black couple convincing people they could help them stay in their homes, only to run off with their money, was so egregious it entered local folklore. It is widely regarded as one of the biggest mortgage fraud scams in the region's history.

Actually they did, several of them in fact. One proposal was to build a new lake upstream from the city on the same watercourse, so the water would flow downhill. There are two lakes within the city that are so built but they are too polluted to be part of the general municipal supply. There have been many allegations that the financial interest of key members of the selection committee played a big role. The lake is named for then-mayor Alan Henry and the dam is named for councilman John Montford, both of whom are still alive and active more than 20 years after their names were bestowed.

She keeps them in the back yard but I can smell the skunk when the wind shifts. It's probably $8-10,000 worth of weed. It's pretty risky but there's so much weed in other backyards.

Texas gets $200 billion a year in federal spending, and more of the jobs Perry talks about were created by government in 2008-2010, rather than the private sector. He can't really duplicate conditions in Texas on a national level.

What a stupid comment.

In liberal Christianity tends away from the bible-banging of conservative Christian-supremacist Evangelicalism, for instance.

When con Christians hide behind their "beliefs" to curtail the rights of everyone else, or insist that the government was made by and for them only, then yes, the "beliefs" are a problem. On their own merits, nobody cares about their stupid "beliefs".
