Texas Gov. Rick Perry is such a badass, right, and he doesn’t like it when those incompetent fucktards in Washington start fucking around with his Texas fucking budget. Ever heard of the 10th Amendment, about how states are responsible for powers not granted to the federal government? Well go suck a dick, Obama, cause Rick Perry went out of his way today to support a non-binding House resolution that fucking says right there, right there on the first page, that the 10th Amendment is… just a really good Amendment, motherfuckers. He supports it. Rick Perry supports that fucking shit.
From the Governor’s office it’s a fucking press release, Texas style:
“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
A number of recent federal proposals are not within the scope of the federal government’s constitutionally designated powers and impede the states’ right to govern themselves. HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government.
It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.
RICK PERRY YOU ARE AWFUL. Why are you lying? Don’t you know that lying is a Sin? It looks like you’re referring to, say, the $555 million in federal stimulus money that would temporarily boost your nearly empty state unemployment insurance fund, although it would require changing state law to expand unemployment eligibility. Well you have a *choice* to accept that. There are not civil or criminal penalties, and you cannot “lose federal funding,” because it’s never existed before this. You need to raise the unemployment tax on businesses either way, because the fund will be dry within months. It is insanely low. Make a choice and shut up. Stop blaming your own political weaknesses on the Socialists with this violent secessionist know-nothing demagoguery just because you can’t figure out how to beat Kay Bailey Hutchinson for your 57th term.
And this goes for you too, SANFORD. We see you down there.
