Lewis Black Messes With Texas

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: ethics, lies, republicans, economy, freedoms, Govtfearmongering )

- 1796 days ago -
Rick Perry launched a series of radio ads in states like CA, IL & NY. Their purpose? To lure businesses to regulation-free Texas. Lewis Black didn't take kindly to Perry's ads & he got a group of New Yorkers to send their own message to Rick Perry.

oh yeah...NY, my home for 25 years. You go Lewis Black. Thank goodness for comedy. We really have some of the best to help us through this debacle. Miss George Carlin though. I hope the majority of voters in Texas have your ideals Terrie.

Unfortunately, Nancy, they don't.....that's one of the major reasons I despise living here. :) Oh, there are pockets of us but we are grossly outnumbered by Fascist Baggers who seem to just love voting against their own interests....time and time again.

Yeah, move to Texas with the 49th best school system and find people to do the high tech jobs. Yeah, move to Texas where the highest concentration of uninsured people live and find a healthy work force to choose from. Yeah, move to Texas where you have right to work for less laws and try to find competent workers to move there. Yeah, move to Texas where people are so stupid they elect morons to public office.

73% of respondents say they would rather live in Hell than Texas, better weather and smarter people.

I realize there are good people there and some of them are on Care2, but you guys, run for your lives before your IQ drops to the level of Rick Perry.

Adding my big thanks for posting, Yvonne. I watched this broadcast, too, (I never miss The Daily Show), and my husband was walking into the room while I was loudly laughing. He sat down and both of us laughed so hard! This was great! Huge round of applause to Lewis Black.

I saw this on Jon Stewart and laughed to tears. I watched again and laughed again. I love Lewis Black but love mocking Perry as much. Thanks Lewis Black.

Typical Repug moron. I am quite sure that Perry and Texas really do not want the regulated and taxed Blue State businesses to move to Texas. If they do move to Texas just who the hell is going to pay Texas' bills. Texas sucks in nearly 2.5 X more Federal Tax Dollars than it pays in. Can you say parasite? In 2009-10 Texas used $15.9 BILLION in Federal Tax Dollars for its Budget Deficit, 2010-11 $6.4 Billion, 2011-12 $15.4 Billion. Yes 2009-12 Texas used $ 37.7 Billion of other states tax dollars to balance its budget. And the estimate is that for 2012-13 Texas will have a budget deficit of $31 Billion, any one care to guess where the parasite plan to get the money.

HA HA HA HA! Oh, my but my sides do hurt! Thank you Yvonne, and Betsy for sharing this post! Poor Texas! I can't think of one state in the nation that deserves Perry or a hoard of locusts like the Republicans Texas has. So many of the voters are disenfranchised there that it brings me near to tears to think of them. Honestly, Missouri isn't any better because it has been overrun by them as well. Well, at least we can watch Lewis Black to take our minds off of our sorrows!

Wow, not a Rick Perry fan, but not a fan of a mocking vulgar individual either. Just once again proves my point crazies resort to vulgarity as opposed to saying why New York is a better place to keep a business. However I will say this, I will take a decent Texan over a vulgar mouthed New Yorker any day.

LOL! Probably best you don't go to New York..or Illinois..or California either. ;)
