Rick Perry is a dangerous guy

Rick Perry is a dangerous guy

Will someone with mass media please expose the president want-to-be from Texas for what he really is — dangerous?

Gov. Rick Perry is being marketed as a business friendly, anti-tax, deficit-cutting conservative Republican chosen by God himself to lead the nation to the economic promised land beginning in 2012. His bio suggests that half the new jobs were created in Texas because he is the governor. One bio picture depicts him in full pilot regalia — flight suit, sunglasses, helmet under arm in front of a sleek jet aircraft, gazing toward the heavens, suggesting a fighter pilot anticipating his next combat mission.

Perry is really a converted Democrat, switching political parties when it became apparent that Texas was swinging to the right and once in the GOP fold had to be be a business friendly, anti-tax, conservative to be elected. His religious devotion is probably sincere, although certainly convenient given his target audience. Texas has created many new jobs while Perry has been governor, but mostly due to sky-rocketing oil prices, government jobs due to population growth and “snatching” of jobs from areas of the country due to Texas’ tax incentives. During the same period the state budget deficit went up, health care coverage down, and number of minimum wage jobs up.

He attended Texas A&M, entered the Air Force and indeed became a pilot — flying turboprop cargo aircraft in Europe in the mid ’70s — hardly the experience his bio picture taken in front of an Air Force training aircraft suggests.

Gov. Rick Perry hit the campaign trail and although supposedly in an early GOP primary, directs most of his rhetoric toward the sitting president or anybody connected with the current administration. His most recent suggestions being that the president may not be patrotic and the Fed chairman may be committing treason by holding the interest rates low. He certainly says what he thinks which might be refreshing, given today’s political climate, but is worrisome if pictured in a foreign policy sense.

Deeper investigation into Gov. Perry, I think, will expose him for what he really is — another shoot-from-the-lip West Texas cowboy seeking a position for which he is neither intellectually nor sufficiently experienced to fill. We’ve been down this road before with George W. Bush, a Texas “cowboy” educated at Yale. How did that work out for you?

Yes...Rick Perry is a really dangerous guy.

Reneging on Gardasil mandate in the Lone-Star State is an admission of guilt
and should not be forgiven or forgotten.

By Leslie Carol Botha

PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 22, 2011 – According to VAERS analyst and SANE Vax team member Janny Stokvis, Governor Rick Perry should have been aware and taken action on the mounting injuries from Gardasil in Texas before an attempt to mandate the vaccine. VAERS reports one girl died post-Gardasil vaccination, there were 14 life-threatening situations and 31 girls became disabled after Perry’s attempt to issue an executive order. The effort to introduce the drug into Texas schools turned into one of Perry’s greatest defeats.  His admission of a ‘mistake’ five years later is reprehensible.

During a 16 month investigation of Gardasil, side effects were documented in a disturbing number of cases to VAERS including 3,589 during a 16 month period.2Even though thousands of girls reported adverse reactions to the vaccine, Perry found no reason to modify or withdraw his executive order. Those numbers have now risen to over 22,000 and yet, it took political posturing for Perry to admit his ‘mistake.’

In addition the executive order mandated that the Department of State Health Services make the HPV vaccine available through the Texas Vaccines for Children program for eligible young females up to age 18, and the Health and Human Services Commission shall make the vaccine available to Medicaid-eligible young females from age 19 to 21. 3

Medicaid? That means that the private sector that refuses to buy into the HPV vaccine scheme would now pay for Merck’s Gardasil hoax.

Is this a man in bed with Big Pharma?

According to VAERS, Texas has had its fair share of reports of adverse reactions.

19,170 reports are from the U.S. – 3,127 of those events are from unknown locations.
914 reports out of the 19,170 reports are from Texas. But considering the fact that 3,127 reports have an unknown location, this number could be higher.5

Gardasil Adverse Events in Texas:

•   One death report of a 26 year old woman who died Nov 2007
•   67 reports are listed as serious7
•   14 reports of Life threatening situations8
•   433 reports of emergency room visits9
•   45 reports of hospitalization10
•   10 reports extended hospital stay11
•   174 reports where the girls did not recover from their injuries12
•   31 reports of girls now disabled13

Now that Perry has declared his candidacy for President he told reporters in New Hampshire that he regretted his handling of the vaccine, explaining: “I signed an executive order that allowed for an opt out, but the fact of the matter is that I didn’t do my research well enough to understand that we needed to have a substantial conversation with our citizenry.”  Too little – too late, Governor Perry.

Rick Perry's record:

17% of Texans are living in poverty
26% don't have health care, the highest rate in the nation.
The income gap between the wealthy and middle class is fifth widest in the nation.
SAT scores of Texas is 45th in the nation.
Texas is dead last with people over 25 that have a high school diploma.
He talks down the stimulus but accepted every penny he could and that money created 45,000 jobs.
Texas is tied with Mississippi for having the most minimum wage jobs.

It certainly is amazing how quickly our liberal friends can dig up information to trash an opponent, yet turn a silent ear towards the antics and inequities of our current President. It is as if they are deflecting misgivings and disappointments over Obama by finding as much "wrong" with other candidates as possible.

I seem to recall there are at least 2 or 3 democrats who were once republicans, but no one seems to be complaining about them, despite their being a republican for many years.

Let's let this political process work its way thru, before we begin to scream bloody murder over a candidate. I, for one, want to see and hear what they have to say before I form an opinion. This is the American way and part of the process, afterall. By the way, what are you afraid of?

jojuggie....Do you have any proof you can post that would say the previous posts about perry's record are untrue or do you just think it''s "fishy"?

Personally I hope perry gets the nomination and is the teabagger/republican candidate. In fact I think I'll pray on it.

jojuggie.... I recall you asking me for proof of something I posted and I was happy to do so. So if you call the facts given in the prior posts "crap" why is it a problem to ask you to provide proof that it's "crap"? It works both ways.

How are the articles slanted if all they did was report actual numbers that reflect what is actually happening in rick perry's Texas? They are not opinions, they are facts and ignoring facts is the definition of trying to put a slant on something.

Trying to slant something would be: some say he is a Muslim, some say he has ties with terrorist and wants to destroy America, some say he wasn't born in America, some say he wants to redistribute wealth, some say he wants to kill grandma. That would be people trying to slant something rather than using facts. Just curious, where is it that you get your information.

jojuggie...."At least Fox News shows both sides".

Is this what you call "both sides"? This is how the Fix Noise Network covered Obama's first 100 days and the days are counted off in the top right corner.

I really don't see any point in discussing anything with you because it's obvious, if you don't agree with something then in your mind it isn't true. You should never accuse anyone of putting spin on anything because you seem to have that covered yourself.

Cambridge is excellent when it comes to taking information and presenting it with a slant.
After all, he lives in the State with the 2nd highest unemployment, 3rd worst State for population with high school diplomas, 7th worst in health care coverage, 4th worst budget deficit, etc.
He’s well aware of what a poorly functioning State looks like, and will always blame someone else.

jojuggie....Ah, those were Fix Noise puppets doing the talking, rupert murdoch pulling the strings and you swallowing every word.

What are you going to do, deny they said it. Pretty pathetic

What cambridge is good at is providing proof of what he posts. You should try it sometime..,

@jojuggie
I don't know if saying Fox News has liberals working for them is supposed to be a joke or if it's just a delusion. Those people are nothing more than talking heads repeating what they are told to say. The word News doesn't even belong in the same sentence with the word Fox.

For anyone that thinks FOX news shows both sides, they're sadly mistaken.

Watch these:

Carl Cameron flat out lies about Obama's health care speech to Congress:

http://www.dailykostv.com/w/002130/

Fox news misreports TARP savings:

http://www.dailykos.com/tv/w/002393/

Fox news refused to air President Obama's speech. Here's what they aired instead:

http://www.dailykos.com/tv/w/002161/

Fox news: "We're the only place you won't see Barack Obama on health care..."

http://www.dailykos.com/tv/w/002167/

...Fox got the news story wrong (again):

http://www.dailykos.com/tv/w/001154/

Fox falsely claims DOW fell 56 points during Obama's speech:

http://www.dailykos.com/tv/w/001041/

Go ahead, you Fox junkies, and call me out on the website I'm sourcing. DailyKos completely left-wing... but the news clips, my friends... don't lie.

Anyone catch the debate last night? Hats off to Bachman for calling Perry on the carpet for his executive order in 2007 to mandate that gardasil vaccine.

Unfortunately, it was just a political move on Bachman's part. Because that vaccine is for sexually transmitted disease. They need to look at ALL the mandated vaccines that are causing or contributing to our epidemics of Chronic diseases, learning and behavioral disorders, and autism.

So sick of these millionaires with deep pockets and even deeper corporate ties running our country.
