Rick Perry was inaugurated… again. I don’t get it. If I were Jesus or had Jesus’ powers I would have forced all the newspapers to have the same headline:
"Oh Shit – Perry is Back"
What a joke this whole governor of Texas thing is. I won’t go into detail here about how this happened, but at some point in Texas history they removed the testicles from the Governor. Not just one governor, but all of them from that point on. Thank God.
Perry is a danger to padded rooms. I seriously doubt he has control over his own bladder much less anyone or anything connected to Texas government. The only difference from his last term is that I won’t be laughing quite as hard this time. We can’t afford to have this guy at the helm for four more years.
His latest gig is the cameras on the border that caught a whopping 10 illegal aliens during its month long test period. I caught 10 illegals yesterday on accident when I locked the bathroom door at Wal-Mart from the outside as a joke. Perry is going to ask for $5 million dollars to continue the program indefinitely. That’s $41,666 a year per illegal if you assume that the rate of 10 per month will be the norm. How many teachers make that much starting out? But hey, don’t let me get in the way of “border security.” It’s apparent that Texas’ internet camera solution is way better than the federally run Border Patrol… or not.
We are set to sink $100 million dollars of Texas’ taxpayer money to do what the federal government already does. I don’t know what Perry is so worried about. Any terrorist using the southern border of the United States stands little or no chance of bombing the Texas itstelf after having the great food along the border. I can’t see how anyone would blow up a state that harbors such culinary bliss for such a good price. Let Oklahoma spend the money to stop them. Give that cash to our GOOD teachers.
I guess the only thing I have to look forward to the next four years is the comical news coming out of Austin about the Governor. I can’t wait to see what this Einstein pulls next. For God’s sake we were supposed to see some kind of relief on our property taxes along with a pay raise for teachers last time around. The teachers got a wooden nickel and my refrigerator box is now costs me a couple thousand in taxes to pay for all those kid attending Texas schools that his cameras didn’t catch. Maybe we should be applying that $41,000 or so to their education!
