    How so? Housing prices are stable, unemployment is very low, industry is moving here in droves, quality of life is as good as ever.

    The recession is only a rumor here. The only impact we've felt is that bank loans are harder to come by, but that's because they are tied into the liberal cluster**** states.

    rick perry beat houston mayor bill white by THIRTEEN

    big picture, the pros would see this not unexpected opening of hutchison's gop seat as an OPPORTUNITY for the party still in power, which, of course, it is

    that would make TWO

    texas' open and scott brown, #41, from chappaquiddick

    on the other side, we have a good FOURTEEN dems up in 2012 who look to face real challenge

    montana's tester, dakota's conrad, nebraska's nelson, florida's nelson, virginia's webb (who might not run), pennsylvania's casey, ohio's sherrod brown, michigan's stabenow, wisconsin's kohl, new mexico's bingaman (who might not run), minnesota's klobuchar, washington's cantwell, missouri's mccaskill (who came out two weeks ago AGAINST the individual mandate, indicating the the PARTY OF NO may well have 51 to unravel the entire underpinning of obamacare) and west virginia's joe manchin who voted against dream, dadt and, palin like, put a bullet thru cap and trade

    Tougher road ahead for Senate Dems - Shira Toeplitz - POLITICO.com

    upshot: the party of pelosi is gonna have a lot of problems persevering upstairs in 2012

    what do you think that means for obamacare?

    have fun, folks

    There is some spin on that one. The vaccine in question raised some controversy, but it had been tested before Perry tried to make it mandatory in Texas.

    News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Latest News

    Gov. Rick Perry – usually a hero to social conservatives – surprised many of them Friday by making Texas the first state to mandate a vaccine for sixth-grade girls to prevent a sexually transmitted infection that leads to most kinds of cervical cancer.

    In his executive order, Mr. Perry said girls must receive the human papillomavirus vaccine before school starts in September 2008. While noting that parents may opt out of the vaccine for conscience or religious reasons, he said it "provides us with an incredible opportunity to effectively target and prevent cervical cancer."
    It is unclear whether the vaccine would be effective on women who have already been exposed to HPV and therefore is mostly recommended for those who are not yet sexually active. It is also still being tested to see if it can prevent cancers and disease in males.

    The CDC states that tests on the vaccine included 11,000 females, ages 9 to 26, worldwide and that no serious side effects were reported.
