    I doubt Rick Perry would give a shit unless Tony could contribute to his campaign fund.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      easy to spot Irishwitch. I don`t begrudge him however. He can have fun at my nephew`s expense. No foul here.

      It is best to skip these comments as best as possible without feeling insulted.

        More likely deploring the fact that certain people in TX could care less what happens to those of us who aren't Big Money Types.

        May I add that I'll keep your nephew in my thoughts?  This sort of situation is heart-breaking and NO ONE should have to beg for healthcare and aid in an emergency. Msot of us who aren't rich are all only one major catastrophic illness or accident away from this situation.  My MiL was lucky enough to be on Medicare (she's 78) and have medigap insurance which covered all her cancer treatments last year.

        Ther was an interview last years iwth people in Perry's hoem town.  If he'd won the nomination, I would have hoped Obama would have used the quote from an elderly Black woman who'd grown up in his hometown. "I've known that boy all his life, and he's never done a damned thing for anybody here or anywhere else."

          a thousand miles away I have heard so much negative things about Rick Perry. It simply bogs my mind to try to understand why Republicans are how they are towards the poor and people of color.

          I understand that he might go down during his next election.

          Not being part of that state` politics, it is not hard to see how this guy do his business of governor. There is no chance in hell, that this guy will ever get the nomination for president,
          none.

      of interest on the part of the politicians.

      Fiscal conservative: a Republican ready to spend $5 to save a dime--especially if that dime is helping a non-donor.
