    Is it possible that Tesla looked into starting up in Austin also? Besides, Houston is kind of liberal as well, and nothing to do with Republican policies passed by the state.

    Perry won because there really was no other choice. He is the longest running governor in Texas' history because the national Democratic Party threw in the towel on Texas after what Bush the Younger did.

    That was funny, no matter who you are.
    Yea, I noticed that.

    No, it doesn't. You don't get to change the meaning of recession to fit your political vendetta.

    It's the Libs that are always referring to the " Great Recession " as a way to take the heat off of Obama. Like its something beyond his control 6 years into his Presidency.

    Isn't that what we need to find out? I've asked the clear question, "Why was Gov. Perry so adamant about this DA resigning?" Was it just a matter of honor, integrity and losing the public trust or did Gov. Perry have to gain from seeing her gone? Maybe that's something worthy of looking into.

    Not only that, but according to Jack, one person's DWI disqualifies the entire office.
