Ruminations of the Easily Amused for Dec 7 2013

Everything is a big honking sheet of ice! Supposed not to get warm enough to start even melting all this till tomorrow afternoon, so continued to be hunkered down.

THIS... on Paul Walker

I’m talking about the very American mentality of, “This is my car, and I’m gonna drive it how I want,” because we’re a selfish, drooling toddler of a nation that’s running around the department store of the world unsupervised and yelling “CAR GO VROOM, GUN GO BANG!” So if you’re wondering why I haven’t really said much about Paul Walker’s death, it’s not that I’m glad he died, unlike Andrew Breitbart, it’s that I’m not entirely broken up when someone who recklessly drives a steel murderbox on wheels bites it, and I don’t really get why anyone who’s not an immediate family member would be either because **** these idiots.

About Rick Perry's Cancer Slush Fund- Jerry Cobb's been indicted.

Cobbs’ indictment came six months after Perry carried out a threat to take away state funding for the Travis County district attorney’s Public Integrity Unit in an attempt to force Lehmberg’s resignation. He said she should resign after she was arrested in April on a drunken-driving charge.

Lehmberg refused to step down. If she had done so, Perry would have appointed her successor. She pleaded guilty and did jail time.

Texans for Public Justice, a liberal advocacy group, filed a complaint against Perry, alleging he violated state laws prohibiting coercion and bribery among others in his conduct toward Lehmberg. A special prosecutor has been assigned, and the matter is pending.

Asked about the effect on the CPRIT investigation of Perry’s move to cut funding for Travis County’s Public Integrity Unit, its director, Gregg Cox, said: “It slowed us down somewhat.”

and speaking of Rick Perry'sSlush Funds being audited?

The Texas state auditor's office would not comment to Mother Jones on whether or not the fund has enough oversight. However, when it audited Perry's other pet corporate grant program, the $200 million Texas Emerging Technology Fund (which at the time, required the same unanimous approval by Perry and Co. as the Enterprise fund) in 2011, the state auditor found that this fund had no consistent process for awarding grants, did not stop advisory board members (who were appointed by Perry) from accepting compensation from grant recipients, didn't record its meetings, and did not submit the majority of its required annual reports between 2007 and 2009. Another fund, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, which was spearheaded by Perry and Lance Armstrong, saw eight cancer scientists (two of them Nobel laureates) resign in protest because it was putting political and commercial interests over scientific ones. 

"Perry's office is basically accommodating a process by which taxpayer money is transferred to corporations, not invested in state infrastructure," says Matt Angle, the director of the Lone Star Project, a political action committee devoted to strategic communications and research for Democrats. He would like to see Enterprise funds start going to education, family planning, and roads. (In 2011, Perry cut $5.4 billion in state funding from public schools, and he is turning down $100 billion to expand Medicaid while also shuttering 53 family planning clinics.)

Hah! Texas is Mordor

Must be kidding. I don't know of anyone that seriously believes the Noah's Ark story is literally true. But imagine how animals would be treated in a modern day animal rights abuse case-in-the-making.
