remember when recent-psycho-in-the

brief-spotlight, Texas Gov. Ricky Perry,

smiled at the camera in the debate o’

repuglicans & couldn’t remember the

3rd branch of government that he told

the nation watching that he would eliminate

once he became president?

remember that this asshole had nothing to

say but “oops,” after admitting to wanting to

get rid of Education & Commerce---because

he couldn’t think of another valuable thing

to get rid of & Ron Paul sarcastically offered

up, “the EPA?”---

this same man also told the nation that he

had no regrets, that he “never struggled to

sleep at night” with the thought that any of the

over 200 more people executed in his

state (than the others in the US)

had been innocent---

after all, he is a proud representative of the

cowboy state that had to be forced by 2,000

federal troops to finally free their slaves in

1865 & one might not be surprised to find

him wearing a “don’t mess with Texas”

belt buckle, when he parts his suit coat.

 

a few nights ago, another man,

Mr. Marvin Wilson, age 54, whose IQ of

61 (9 points below Texas’ own cut off of 70

which determines one is mentally retarded) did

not even make a bit of difference to Mr. Perry &

the bloodthirsty behind him, was executed

without forensic proof or eyewitness accounts of

the murder of which he was convicted of in

1992---

Marvin was a grown man who sucked his thumb,

bearing many intellectual inabilities, from “telling

the difference between right and left” to “handling

money,”

still, disregarding Atkins v. Virginia (2002),

in which the Supreme Court posited that people

with mental disabilities rendering them incapable of

understanding their own actions, should not be

executed,

TEXAS DID IT ANYWAY.

 

one wonders if conclusive DNA evidence was

discovered years from now, exonerating him

from the crime of which he was convicted,

beyond the shadow of a doubt,

would Mr. Ricky & all the repugs still sleep

soundly?---

 

need we even take a vote?

 

7 are already dead in 2012 Texas, campers:

3 African-American men,

3 Hispanic men &

one white guy…

 

AND MORE ARE SCHEDULED

FOR THE REMAINING MONTHS OF

2012,

SO GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!!

COME ON DOWN TO TEXAS,

BRING YER’ WIFE, BRING YER’

RUGRATS & PULL UP THE BACK OF

A TRUCK.

 

“gawd” bless this “democratic”

&

“civilized”

country of ours.
