Perry Against Government Encroachment Unless Against Women

Hypocrite Rick *Secessionist* Perry Mind Boggler O Day (June 2011)-Prayer at Graduation

6 June 2011 at 10:42:39 AM

I laughed when I saw this statement by Perry about the state-sponsored prayer at Medina Valley High School, Castroville, TX.

"This reprehensible action taken by a federal judge underscores the increasingly inappropriate federal encroachment into the lives of Americans by unconstitutionally banning prayer at a Texas high school graduation. The First Amendment prohibits governments from interfering with Americans' rights to freely express their religious beliefs, and accordingly the U.S. Supreme Court has maintained that Congress may convene every day with a prayer. I fully support Attorney General Abbott's efforts to defend the right to pray, and Texas will continue to stand behind all those who wish to pray in our state."

Not going to get into the issue of how Congress starts their day with a NON-SECTARIAN and NON-PROSELYTIZING prayer or that the ban order was overturned BECAUSE the school took *invocation* and *benediction* off the program, rendering the complaint moot.

I DO want to contrast this comment with the offensive Sonograms for Abortions legislation that Sid Miller promoted and Rick Perry signed. Let's reword the above.

"This reprehensible action taken by Sid Miller of Texas House District 59 and voted on by the Texas Legislature  underscores the increasingly inappropriate state encroachment into the lives of Americans by putting in onorous roadblocks for a legal medical procedure. The US Supreme Court ruled in Roe v Wade that the 14th amendment of the United States constitution extends to a woman's decision to have an abortion.

There's a big difference between state regulation of abortion, for the purpose of protecting women's health, and "increasingly inappropriate state encroachment into the lives of Americans". But I guess encroachment is all on Rick Perrys' plate depending on which way Perry wakes up that day or who's on his official Pander List.

The Corpus Christi Caller Times put it this way, in their editorial entitled "Rick Perry Grows Government at Women's Expense.

All three men are members of the Republican Party, which professes that those who govern least, govern best — that government growth and intrusion are bad. The things physicians will be required to do, and to which women will have to submit, are a significant expansion of the government role. Perry and his cohorts' quest to get into women's business — NOT in the chamber-of-commerce sense — should give honest Republicans impetus to go Libertarian.

Or at least not be stupid enough to take Rick Perry seriously for office nationally.

P.S. I forgot two more. Perry kissup to Merck in which he attempted to force little girls to hvae mandatory Gardasil shots despite parents being against this, ahem, government encroachment. AND Perry is all for taking people's private property through eminent domain for toll roads run by foreign companies (Hello! Trans Texas Corridor!). I heard him say yesterday that he was all for private property rights-well, guess what, he's LYING.
