    Re: Gov. Rick Perry indicted for abuse of power for carrying out threat to veto prose

    Just wanted to say thanks everyone for the interesting and civil discussion of the issues today. I'm off for the night.

    Have fun and enjoy.

Isn't the President coercing an outcome by using the power of his office?
    Indeed. Observation made with clarity of thought. Well done.

    No, I left out the words her salary wasn't cut. I believe honest individuals here understand that cutting the budget normally doesn't affect the Department Heads own salary, You really don't seem to grasp the concept that she was given the choice to resign or face a budget cut. She chose the budget cut and there is nothing wrong with that

    That is a lie, 13% of minimum wage workers don't live in TX, your state has 1.6 million of them

    I understand your love for your state but it isn't called the "Land of Fruits and Nuts" by accident. It is an economic disaster which doesn't seem to bother you
    Kind of goes with the cost of living in TX which is quite a bit lower than California so now are you changing your tune? Corporate welfare isn't a gift, it is an investment that allows businesses to keep more of what they earn which normally they grow their employment with. Still waiting for you to explain why so many are moving to TX, businesses and employees?

    She wasn't forced to resign, what part of that don't you understand?

    Texas had the most minimum-wage workers last year, accounting for nearly 13 percent of all such workers across the country, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


    Doh! Darn those pesky facts. The funny thing is that facts stare you right in the face and you still shuffle and dance around and pretend that they aren't there. Sorry Con....but facts is facts.....

    This is frustrating, that article relates to Federal Minimum wage whereas over 20 plus states have their own, California is one of them. You cannot seem to grasp the concept that 1.6 million Californians made minimum wage and 500,000 Texans.

    Asserting that the side you favor's claims are facts now? How is that any different than 'don't believe your lying eyes, believe what I tell you'?
    I merely posted the indictment, as a matter of fact (that it exists, and that it alleges certain things) in response to your post indicating that you had apparently not read it or thought it did not exist or had not been published.

    Any assertions or comparisons beyond that are yours, and I would say not a matter of fact (and certainly not representative of my post). Again, I am here to discuss facts, not imagination or strawmen.

    How about this fact, the DA still has her job
