Rick Perry Voices Support For Stupidest Thing Ever

by Jim Newell

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of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.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.

Hey, Rick ‘Good Hair’ Perry can’t let Snowbilly & Sanford get all the publicity (even though he’s too damn stupid to spell ‘president’, much less run for it). Kay Bailey’s looking pretty good right about now. At least she’s smart enough to keep her pie hole shut.

Umm… so, ummm… there was this Civil War thing, you Texans may have heard about it. It happened a long time ago (more than four years) and your side lost. Sorry about that. And, umm… I mean, your side lost so badly, you didn’t even get a chance to surrender (your President was nabbed trying to escape in his wife’s dress). So, umm, a lot of time has gone by since then (more than four years, or even eight), and you Texans have pretty much been sucking at the same federal tit the rest of us Merkuns been sucking at. Been protected by the nuclear umbrella and the kick-ass air force and the marines and those sharpshootin’ naval seals, too. Not to mention the army, let’s not forget the army, which spends a lot of money in Texas. So, umm, Ricky — I can call you Ricky, right? or do you prefer Dick? (some do.) — in that picture, that’s an American air force plane and crew you’re standing in front of, verdad?

Oh, wait. That was Orval Faubus, in Arkansas, and he was a miserable states’ rights fuckwit, too. In fact, the Citizens Councils and Mothers’ Leagues of that time remind me a lot of the National Organization for Marriage and…oh, wait, what’s the name of that other group of racist, sexist, homophobic white men who want to deny equal rights for all and who are planning terrorist attacks on domestic soil?

When this first came up a few weeks ago, perry was saying that if they had to raise taxes in 3 years after the federal funds ran out, it would cause sacred cow “small businesses” to go bankrupt.

Then he introduced one of these business types who complained that he had X number of employees and it would cost him Y amount in extra taxes in 3 years, if the economy didn’t improve.

I did the math.

It ammounted to $1.34 a week, per employee

So let me get this straight: the federal government will give you money but wants a say in how it is spent. So if they give you a billion dollars for unemployment, you don’t turn around and hand it over to a bunch of oil company execs in Houston? That way the federal government won’t have to one day explain to the taxpayers that our money is subsidizing said oil execs’ Nimitz-sized yachts? And they make you pass laws saying you will spend it on unemployment rather than just taking you at your word?

Did all the constitutional scholars in Texas get their law degrees by coloring in place mats at a Josh Evans?

[re=289412]imissopus[/re]: Texas is very different. The Comptroller of Public Accounts actually has more power than the Governor or Lt. Governor. The Court of Criminal Appeals hears the criminal cases rather than the state’s Supreme Court. And the Texas Railroad Commission is considered the most powerful state agency next to the Comptroller’s office.

Plus so many counties are no-alcohol, or certain precincts therein, and some places allow no liquor stores but liquor by the drink, or allow BYOB, or insist you be a member of a private club to drink.

He won the 2006 election because too many people ran against him and split the opposition vote.

OK, first: when I was a homosexual law student at a fancy-pants law school, no one knew what the fuck the 10th Amendment really means. I’m glad that the Governor of Texas has it all figured out.

Second: I love how folks get hardons over states’ rights until it comes to same-sex marriage (regulation of marriage being the quintessential states’ right matter), and then we absolutely have to have the federal government involved.

Third, and speaking of hardons: Perry is a DILF. Right now I’m pleasuring myself thinking about a hot fourgy with him, Mitt Romney and Todd Palin. Preferably in a bathroom stall at a busy airport. Hawt!

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens…”

Oh, and your crusade to inject all of Texas children with an HPV vaccine isn’t intrusive?

I live in Texas, and this asshole is the source of every last one of our problems. Our high schools graduate droves of borderline retarded students into the world and yet more than 75% of the state budget goes toward Perry’s personal Aqua-Net and buttplug supply. Go suck John Cornyn’s dick.

“that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding”

Right, because Texas totally turned down all that federal highway money when the federal government wanted us to raise the drinking age to 21. Shut up and sit down, Rick Perry. I’ve spent the last 8 years defending my home state, despite the presence of a moronic mouthpiece. I’m not doing it anymore.

Rick Perry is so gay.

Don’t dump Texas. It’s going to be majority-minority soon, and won’t be a stewpot of Republican assholery much longer. That is why they are so desperate and frothy-mouthed. Just look at John Cornyn on the teevee. White man knows his time is runnin’ out.

Rick Perry is (still) governor largely because Kinky just blew it. He got people enthused about him running for governor. I have friends who didn’t vote in the primary for the first time since they started voting because of the rules for voting for an independent…then he just started rambling around, and lost interest in politics, and issues, and governance. Split the vote when Perry was weak, Carol Keaton Rylander Grandma Scotty McClellan’s-mom Strayhorn was picking votes away from Perry and the Democrat had a CHANCE.

Kinky doesn’t get a re-do.
