he wants money to rebuild a factory town that he would not spend the money to inspect properly.
But he does not want the money to expand Medicaid for poor people.
But he does want the money to build a fence.

So many companies are moving to texas, I suggest that he create a texas corporate emergency fund tax on all texas corps to pay for proper state inspections and emergencies like this.

And I hope that all of the damaged properties around the plant sue both the plant and the state for negligence.

Rick tells people what they want to hear

Rick Perry wants to scrap three government departments.
What would that mean? The Lookout By Zachary Roth Rick Perry's excruciating brain freeze as he tried to remember which government department he wants to eliminate was clearly the YouTube moment of the debate. But lost in the hilarity was the question of what Perry's plan would actually mean.

Perry said he wants to scrap the federal
Departments of Commerce,
Education,
and Energy
The Department of Commerce contains the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which runs our system of intellectual property. Without it, America would have no way to ensure that inventors could fully profit from their inventions, giving them little incentive to spend the time and money needed for breakthroughs. The pace of American innovation would likely take a huge hit. [ texas might stop inventing methods to teach religion in public schools ]

Commerce also includes the Census Bureau. The accurate count of Americans that the department provides each decade lets leaders and policymakers know how to allocate resources--housing, roads, utilities--around the country. [ But rick is simple - allocate all resources to cutting the 1% taxes and stopping abourtions]

The Department of Energy, created during the Carter administration, protects U.S. nuclear weapons from accidents or terrorist attacks that could release dangerous radioactive material, killing thousands. Without the oversight that the Energy Department presently provides, it would be difficult to maintain a nuclear weapons program at all. The Energy Department also plays a key role in funding and promoting the civilian use of nuclear power.
[ we all know that rick wants to de-nuclearize America ]

As for the Department of Education--likewise created under President Carter--its role is more limited, because the U.S. education system is highly decentralized. Indeed, The Education Department does have a role in shaping education policy, however, by handing out funds to states that adopt its preferred reforms [ such as teaching REAL science ], and it also enforces privacy and civil rights laws in schools. [ since when does texas need civil rights in schools ]

But the bottom line is always the same -
just anothr R working for his constituency -
the 1% and their lemmings

"Texas" has been going on since the 80s; and there goes another good job.
