    in Texas.  Prolly lost to Bill White except for the voting machine fire.  Even his corporate puppetmasters are struggling.  After Bush fucked education here the pool of skilled laborers is woefully small.  Why locate in a low tax low wage state if your Masters level hires can't spell, write, or comprehend the new hire packet?  How can saving money on wages save you from employees who can't think?  

    Texas is a laboratory for the worst of Republican policies, and we're the ugly proof that every one of them also fails the folks they were created to benefit.  That's what happens when intelligence and critical thinking skills are bred out of the workforce.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      Not as famous as the Reichstag fire, so thanks for giving it a mention. Since certain theories are banned here, and since I didn't read the fire department's report of the investigation, I'll just leave it at that.

        things that happen in Red states.  I'm thinking it's possible our hackers hacked their hackers in 2012, but that's mostly to amuse myself.  I love Lisbeth Salander.
