The day I heckled Rick Perry

by johncoby

A decade ago Rick Perry visited a Houston hospital to promote his tort reform bill that would limit medical malpractice awards to $250,000. I had a chance to wear a white coat, put on a badge, wear a stethoscope, smoke a pipe and stand behind Perry during his event.

In another OOPS moment, Rick Perry forgot he wasn't the best self proclaimed ethics watchdog of Texas.

From KHOU TV in Houston from Memorial Day 2013:

A well-to-do doctor claims it was self-defense when he shot and killed 36-year-old Brandon Smith. Police said Smith crashed a crawfish boil at the doctor's house, got kicked out and went back later. Smith's dad says his son was walking his dog the second time. He said Smith had a brain injury and was gunned down in the street and not on anyone's property.
The shooter heald the victim at gunpoint across his lawn, across the street, and down the adjoining street then shot him. The community has demanded an investigation and charges filed, but there is more and a HUGE twist.....keep reading.

The republican party, the once "conservative" party of Ronald Reagan, who believed in values such as respect and honor have been taken over by a bunch of white wing, racist, warmongering, simple minded, hate filled, incompetent, chicken hawk, disrespectful, lying, cheating, womanizing, hypocritical, bunch of two bit whores. (My apologizes to the two bit whores of this country)

Let us prey for an end to ObamaCare

by johncoby

From the steps of the Supreme Court of the United States the so called "Christians" offer this prayer for an end to ObamaCare:

Oh lord, let us prey.
Let us prey on the poor as we cut their access to health care.
Let us prey on the elderly as we cut their Medicare.
Let us prey on those with cancer as we let them plunge into bankruptcy.
Let us prey on the child with leukemia as we let their insurance company drop them.
Let us prey on those with pre-existing conditions as we let insurance companies deny them.
Let us prey on women as we cut their wellness programs.
And let us prey on the tea party for they know not what they are doing.

In your name we will continue to prey for we are truly the ones that are sick.


Many years ago a group of folks, upon invitation, decided to settle in the area now known as Texas, and as they have done in the past, they decided to take the land for themselves. Stealing was a part of their culture. Ask the Indians. Might was right, but at times they paid the price. The battle of the Alamo was one of those times and they are at it again this time stealing our rights to vote.

"Along with solving the non-existent Voter ID problem, meddling in women's reproduction rights, ending non-existent sanctuary cities, and distracting voters from my $27 Billion budget hole, I have put the eradication of the Chupacabra on the list of emergency items for this session." said Perry at a press conference.

America can learn a lot from Texas

by johncoby

Mr. Cobarruvias is a volunteer with Homeowners Against Deficient Dwellings and has testified at hearings in Texas on insurance and tort reform, especially in support of new homebuyers.

Texas has some of the best mouth watering barbeque in the country. We have some of the best college football and college education and our high school football program is second to none. But we have something that all of America can learn from: bad legislation. Congress is currently debating health care reform and could learn from the mistakes of the Texas Legislature over the last few years including insurance reform, tort reform, and deregulation.

I give you my 2008 version of T’was the Night Before Christmas. Please distribute, copy, post, and use in your newsletters, blogs etc, if you like to. Please reference my blog Bay Area Houston.

T’was the Night Before the Inauguration
By John Cobarruvias

T'was the night before inauguration and what to my dismay
The market was tanking, I lost my 401K!
The stocks were hung, in downfall they stuck
While Bush did nothing, a truly lame duck

The republicans were nestled, their heads in the sand
With visions of defeat of the republican brand.
And Cheney with his gun, his heart a pace
Looking for someone, to shoot in the face.
