Maybe Perry's prayers and faith will tell him not to run for President... for the g o p puke
party and the voters have already rejected him. Perry made a fool of himself the first time and
if he does run again, he will have just made himself a bigger fool.

What is another term for what Perry does...?

It has been awhile since I heard of TASS. Clever cartoon.

Must take FISA control away from Roberts.

Ty, Tom.

Puzzle 4:11 I am definitely sitting under the parrot without an umbrella! I bought a new mouse but it is so fast that I can't keep up. It over shoots etc. I even put a piece of cardboard under it and it is still too fast. I need to break it in over the next few days.

You Tube I had to laugh because "Bill"also made a brief guest appearance on Rachel Maddow, the segment right after about FISA. Well, "Ladies keep your legs and your mouths shut!" might be the Republican way, but it is NOT my way! Well at least the second part is not my way. The first part is none of your damn business! These religious and sanctimonius zealots parading around Texas (and other parts as well as DC) as legislators need to turn off the ideological rhetoric and turn on the not so common common sense! I hope Wendy Davis runs for governor and cleans some Republicanus/Teabagger clocks! Texas would be the better for it!

MSNBC There are separation of duties of the three branches of government for good reasons, and these revelations about the FISA court blow those right out of the water. To remedy that, some changes are needed.

1) FISA mayrule on interpretations of the law but then those interpretations must go back to the Congress who ma legislateke the laws, or legislate.

2) The sole power to appoint judges without accountability must not rest with the Chief Justice. I think appointments should rest with the Congress, or at the very least with the SCOTUS, but not by a simple majority vote.

3) No secrecy unless absolutely necessary, that necessity to be determined by Congress.

This issue certainly is a 'bite you in the butt' issue!

NY Times I posted a couple of articles on this on Care2. In one, apparently there are thought to be 5 potential Republicanus/Teabagger presidential candidates ahead of P Rick Perry, all with more support Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and Paul Ryan. What makes him think this time is any better? Perhaps he would be better to change his career stream maybe selling manure. He has the 'shit kickers' for the job!

Cartoon No doubt! Love it!

What a bunch of pitifully, putrid excuses for humanity these all are, Lynn!
Apparently the news that Texas has term limits, and Perry could not run again, if he wanted to, was mistaken,
I have a cousin in Texas, Austin, in fact, with whom I checked that out; No term limits.
I know someone who says that he believes that aliens have visited the Earth, I've always laughed at that, but, just maybe....
I'm hoping Hillary runs, has a quiet time getting the nomination, and leaves us plenty of space within which to watch the CIRCUS on the GOP side, or is it the side show in the GOP circus?
Can you see these guys tripping over themselves to be the most outrageously extreme imbecile?!
