    Gov. Rick Perry indicted

    A grand jury was called to determine whether or not Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto the funding. As a result they issued indictments on two felony charges: abuse of official capacity and coercion of public servant. If found guilty on the charges, Perry could be sentenced to a maximum 109 years in prison.

    An indictment indicates the grand jury believes the state has a strong enough case to send to trial and is not a finding of guilt.

    It is a popular tool for all politicians not just conservative republicans. Both liberal democrats and conservative republicans will use this to protect their political career. Like I said many times before both democrats and republicans are only in elected office for their own self aggrandizement. Anyone who cannot see this cannot see very clearly or must be residing on another planet.

    this whole Texas drama is rather funny - drunken DA kicking cops; two-bit, show-boat governor - can it get any better?

    Well, I know how it will end. Two-bit Governor will triumph, in a totally bigoted Red State. If Perry has to redeploy his storm troopers from the border killing Mexicans up to Austin to quash this he will.

    I lived in Texas for over 4 years, was a legal voter for 9, I know my former State very well. Texans still think they're an independent republic, established after they illegally but successfully rebelled against Mexico. I look forward to the day when Mexico takes them back.

    ^true, but what I never realized is, this tool is used, has been or currently, in the workplace, corporate America, among working class people by management, human resource. Or I guess, could be used by your fellow co-worker too. But the tool, being a Felony, not sure why it would even come up in the workplace to begin with unless someone with a political agenda intended to use it to harm others or control under the table. Do your fellow co-workers and management understand that this is a crime (by imprisonment) and should not be used in the workplace, those who 'can get away with it' are sick, demented and probably sociopathic icon_evil.gif

    We know its a political tool, used by mafia and politicians, but when extortion, coercion, blackmail get used in the workplace,
    is it still political? Those using it in the workplace should be charged the same as politicians when they get caught?

    Sorry Art Deco, you can post however many lies you want about me, but I'm not going to get into an online spat with you, much as you keep egging me on and trying to provoke me.


    Hmmm...kind of like what you're trying to do to Metta8. If you knew Metta or his personal history you'd be so embarrassed you'd likely delete your account.

    I know "his personal history" because you posted it here. So we should treat him with kid gloves because of that, while he posts (and never comments on) story after story promoting the left and slamming the right?


    Quoted so you can't retract that you KNOW he's not a 'bot'.

    I agree 100% I lived in the lone star shithole for almost ten years and the anti-American attitudes of most Texans was unbelievable. If you really want to pick a fierce fight with a Texan, just remind him that if it were not for the damned Yankees from the Northeastern states along with the West Coast and Midwestern folks with all their money and education investing and developing Texas, all the Texans would be third world poor and the state would be a massive backwater to avoid. Texans didn't have the required know-how back than and they still don't have the required know-how today. All the development and investment that you are seeing in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Austin is from investors and entrepreneurs from other parts of the US and also from other countries. If it were solely dependent on Texans, those five above mentioned cities and their suburbs and the rest of Texas would be absolutely nothing and that is no bullshit, that is the absolute truth and Texans hate hearing the truth because it hurts their macho egos so bad. Oh well, tough shit.

    Texas men mostly think they're John Wayne. The women mostly think they're his worshipful & subservient wife. Once you understand that, you will understand Texans.

    Positively. I lived there for years, as did roadbikeRob. What are your own Texas credentials? That you watch cowboy movies? Or spent a weekend in Dallas? Maybe you drove through part of the State some time? Or changed planes in DFW?

    it's pretty much true. My experience with Texas hinges mostly on a client I had there: Alcon Labs in Forth Worth (truly a great company now owned by the Swiss - Novartis and Nestle). Thousands of people working at the campus, many from California, New York, Mass, New Jersey, Germany, France, Switzerland - but you could ALWAYS tell the native Texan by their demeanor and attitude (and NOT in a good way).

    Texans also don't like to associate with people from the other Southern states as well. You can always tell the difference between the demeanor of a Texan and anyone from all the states of the old confederacy. Texans will proudly display the stars and bars as a rebellion piece but it is the Texas state flag that reigns supreme. People from states like Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama etc. are a lot friendlier than Texans could ever be and they tend to be more open to new ideas as well.

    'Why Rick Perry Will Be Convicted'

    "Perry is accused of using his veto authority to coerce a publicly elected official into leaving office. And when the veto threat, and later the actual exercise of the veto didn't work, he may have tried a bit of bribery, which is why he is facing criminal charges.

    Not because he exercised his constitutional veto authority."

    QFT. The Texas State flag was their flag as an independent republic, when they (illegally but successfully) rebelled against Mexico. Its single star is why Texas nicknames itself the "Lone Star State".

    This idea of being largely independent of the United States pervades Texan culture and thinking. Except, of course, when it comes to milking Federal benefits, or having lucrative US military bases and other facilities, like NASA operations, stationed there.

    Next time their Governor Perry hints at secession, I say let him and fellow Texans have what they want. And then let Mexico reassert their claims to it.

    I used to inspect units of the Texas Army National Guard - they couldn't repel an invasion of church ladies, much less the Mexicans. Especially when most of their equipment, vehicles and armaments, which are Federal, are taken back, along with most of their Guard's funding, which is also Federal. Maybe they can deploy their gay-free Boy Scout tactical units.

    Funny, I have family and friends in Texas and the stereotype being put forth here does not apply.

    If fact, no stereotype is accurate.

    It never ceases to amaze me how some of "the gays" who claim to disdain being stereotyped, are so quick to embrace stereotypes of those they "don't like."


    I've never lived there, but have been there numerous times and do business with Texas commercial RE sellers and developers on a regular basis. I can't say that I notice much difference from anywhere else. And you get no nonsense right wingers in this business. In fact if anything, it's easier to get deals done in Texas.

    It is not stereotypes, it is the absolute truth about most Texans. Your relatives in Texas are evidently not representative of the large majority of Texans.

    I don't see it either to any extent. There is an sort of unique attitude that I don't find all that pleasant, but I find attitude in many places.
