Rick Perry lives in BachmannLand. It's obvious because he had a prayer ceremony and he got some of the most insane pastors from acros the country for a prayer service. We are talking about people who think that Oprah is the Harlot of Babylon. Sounds crazy, right?
Some disclosure, as far as the budget deficit goes, it is between 8-Billion to 20 Billion depending on what articles you are reading. Same thing as far as the ranking goes, however, I got my information here. The 45% of Texans working at or below minum wage is a number I got from by using math. I divided the number of people working at or below minimum wage in Texas by the total population of Texas and my jaw hit the floor. Nearly half the population is living below the poverty level? Seriously?
The numbers on uninsured I heard on The Rachel Maddow Show. I could look up how accurate that number is, but I am too tired. Finally, 25% of Texas is on fire. It's probably true. The wild fires have hit Texas hard because of the drought. If you want to help, here is a link to the Red Cross.
