Ruminations of the Easily Amused for June 17 2013|
Poor Ole *Oops* Perry seems to be wanting to channel George Bush Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a bit of an “oops” moment today when he mistakenly referred to the administration’s response to the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi as occurring in Lebanon instead of Libya. “I fear where we’ve come to in America, where our administration won’.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused -Commercials Edition|
Commercials I despise. The ones where the smart aleck kids talk about "Back in My Day" when they're, like, 10 years old, lecturing some younger children. These are the same families that apparently have no problem with allowing kids to push televisions all over the house, even outside by the pool. Right. Who does that? The next step is for the television to topple off the .....

Rick *Ooops* Perry is the Grand Poohbah Hypocrite! Handouts for Texas Edition|
We've already said how Rick Perry loves to rail against taking government money while secretly holding out his hand for it. I think he counts on people's short attention spans not to notice his his double standards. Or maybe, heck, after seeing him in the last presidential primaries, maybe *he* has a short attention span and can't remember from week to week what he actually did. .....

Great Editorial by the Glen Rose Reporter on the Hospital Debt Money|
Apparently the newest baloney tactic to tout the new hospital district is that somehow taxpayers don't pay for that honking 14.4 million buck certificate of obligation (plus interest) because the district took it over. hahah. Editor Amanda Kimble skewers that cesspool of illogic. ....during the election, I was presented information that spelled out a theory similar to the concerned .....

Rick Perry burning women!|
The King of Texas rides again! Those in the know believe Governor Rick Perry is going to veto the fair pay bill for women. Perry must really hate women, or maybe he just hates poorer ones... women who work for a living and maybe women who need affordable health care or who need/want an abortion. Perry is flexing his questionable political musc.....

Perry beefing-up his own importance...|
Perry just focused on fetuses and anti-abortion for his wealthy benefactors Too focused on fetuses and in beefing up his own importance... Does Texas Governor [and soon to be Presidential candidate] Rick Perry care at all for providing Texas children with affordable health care? I'm not talking about freebee welfare recipients, I am speaking about health care.....

On Whistleblowers and Government Threats of Investigation by Glenn Greenwald|
From Common Dreams by Glenn Greenwald: "We followed Wednesday's story about the NSA's bulk telephone record-gathering with one yesterday about the agency's direct access to the servers of the world's largest internet companies. I don't have time at the moment to address all of the fallout because - to borrow someone else's phrase - I'm Looking Forward to future revelations that are coming (and .....

|You! Somervell Taxpayer! You Can't Use That Clinic!|
How Much Does GRMC Spend at Pecan Plantation Using Somervell County Taxpayer Money? |
I have wondered for quite a while why Somervell County taxpayers are footing the bill for gated community Pecan Plantation's Pecan Family Medical Center. When Glen Rose Medical Center was a private hospital, where they opted to open up a clinic was their business, as presumably we were not paying any part of their costs. GRMC tried to get that government help for building out the GRMC hospi.....

Revealed: NSA collecting phone records of millions of Americans daily|
From Huffington Post: The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April. The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls .....
