Thou shalt not kill (except atheists, jews, gays, and democrats)Once he's elected, then the real bloodletting of the people can begin.
I fear this as a real threat, because unlike the other godless bunch of lunatics in the republican field, Perry can win.
Today, in typical political fashion, Rick Perry announces his run for the White House.
I couldn't help but think of a 1981 movie starring Sam Neil.
"This is what I'm supposed to be doing" - Rick Perry
Perry has made his living chastising the president and the federal government for doing the very same things he's doing...
Whether it's criticizing Obama and Washington for the Stimulus, then accepting 28 Billion dollars in federal funds to help keep Texas' schools open and infrastructure maintained.
Or living in a taxpayer funded mansion for $10,000 a month.
Or the statistics of his home state under his reign. Can you say shortfall?
I could go on all day as there's no end to this guys bullshit...
So here's something you should know about that Christian Right bunch. They don't believe in government, and argue that it is the duty of the church to take care of the poor, sick, and needy. This is an argument I see every single day, without fail. And as someone familiar with such matters, I'll go one step farther and say that the minimum amount expected to be given from believers is 10% of their income, which is why this post has the title it has.
The Perry family's income tax return shows Perry gave $90 to his church in 2007, a year in which he reported an income of more than $1 million, the San Antonio Express-News reported in Sunday's edition. Tax records from 2000, when Perry became governor, through 2009 show he earned $2.68 million and gave $14,243 to churches and religious organizations, about a half percent, the newspaper reported.See, it's not enough to just pound your chest in the public square and call for national prayer, and blame economic problems on God paying us back for our wanton ways. You're supposed to actually live what you preach, and one way you live it is by giving it.
Perry reported no religious contributions in 2000 and 2009, according to his tax records.
Americans averaged giving nearly 1.2 percent of their income to churches and religious groups in 2004-08, according to the Illinois-based research firm Empty Tomb Inc., which tracks church-giving trends.
Rick Perry, you're exposed as the guy who talks a lot but doesn't live it. I expect this series to continue as the campaign unfolds.
Oh yeah, then there's this:
And he threw such a tantrum when Obama won, he actually talked about Texas seceding from the union, because that's what America needs; a President of the United States who's not really sold on the whole "United States" concept. -Bill Maher
