Perry: Texas Will Not
Secede From US

CBS, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:MattMusson, 11/14/2012 8:44:11 AM

HOUSTON — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has one message for the tens of thousands of Texans calling for secession from the United States: The state will not secede. More than 76,000 people have signed a petition on the “We the People” White House website for Texas to withdraw from the Union and start a new government after President Barack Obama was re-elected. “The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. … Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for

Comments:
Secession is not the answer. The answer is to start kicking other states out. Let´s start with California and Illinois! Those states probably could not even field an army to fight for re-instatement.

Rick Perry isn´t into futile, empty gestures.

Let´s get serious about efforts to fix things instead of signing secession petitions that have zero chance of accomplishing anything except getting the signers´ names on Obama´s enemies list.

I say we get out while the gettin´ is good.

The USA has already left Texas. We just need to sign the divorce papers to allow us to get on with our lives. We can reconstruct what the USA was intended to be but add a constitutional amendment prohibiting wealth redistribution.

What is marvelous about the 50 State secession petitions (even though some are just for legalized drugs)...whether seceding is possible or not...is that this has occurred because ordinary people reject everything Obama is doing to our Country!! The obamabots have filed a petition to cancel the citizenship & kick out all secession signers - YEAH RIGHT - who will pay for for obamaphones and Air Force One if they kick out the tax payers?!! The secede momentum continues even though Obama tries to distract us from the stolen election with his military generals sex scandal and Benghazi...it won´t. If the clowns at the RNC had half a brain, they would ride in on the secede momentum to "true the Republican vote" with similar state petitions to prove the real Romney vote...they won´t...their lack of action is intentional as they are content to blame Romney´s loss on Conservatives hoping we will go away...we will not!!

If they had half a brain they would have set up a site for all Romney voters to confirm their vote by State and we could compare the real vote with the election night vote!! It likely would not remove Obama from office - he needs AF1 to get away from moochie - but at least it would confirm...or debunk...our belief that the Democrats stole this election!

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) employees aren´t necessarily better at investing in stocks than everyone else, but they are much better at getting out of bad investments before the "bad news" hits. That´s according to a new paper by Shivaram Rajgopal and Roger M. White, called, "Stock Picking Skills of SEC Employees."
"The decomposition of returns earned by SEC employees suggests that the abnormal returns are earned in the sell portfolio. In particular, the 12 month ahead (252 trading days) abnormal returns, using the four factor Fama-French model as the model of expected returns, of U.S. common stocks that SEC employees buy (sell) is 0.56% (-7.97%)

Vermont plots course for
single-payer healthcare

WASHINGTON – While all eyes are on the ObamaCare rollout, an ambitious health care experiment is going forward in Vermont that would create a government-run alternative know as a "single-payer" system -- and it´s starting to attract more attention from liberals frustrated with the Affordable Care Act´s implementation. Democrats´ faith in ObamaCare has been shaken by the technical failures of the federal and state insurance exchanges as well as, in some cases, premium increases. In Vermont, however, they see a potential first step toward the kind of national government-run health care system some have advocated for years.

Excedrin headache No. 2013:

Overshadowed by the bungled debut of Obamacare and congressional gridlock, most Americans in a new poll dubbed 2013 a bad year that will be quickly forgotten. For more than four-in-10, the perils of 2013 hit home hard.“Put simply, most Americans are happy to see 2013 go,” said the latest Economist/YouGov Poll.— 54 percent called 2013 a “bad year” for the world. Another 15 percent called it a “very bad year,” with just 3 percent calling it a “very good year” and 29 percent a “good year.”— Only 13 percent of Republicans say 2013 has been a good year for the world. Obamacare is a failure. “There are almost no issues where a majority of Americans have seen improvement.

In an angry exchange with Barack Obama, Angela Merkel has compared the snooping practices of the US with those of the Stasi, the ubiquitous and all-powerful secret police of the communist dictatorship in East Germany, where she grew up. The German chancellor also told the US president that America´s National Security Agency cannot be trusted because of the volume of material it had allowed to leak to the whistleblower Edward Snowden, according to the New York Times.

China successfully soft-lands
probe on the moon

BEIJING — China on Saturday successfully carried out the world’s first soft landing of a space probe on the moon in nearly four decades, state media said, the next stage in an ambitious space program that aims to eventually put a Chinese astronaut on the moon. The unmanned Chang'e 3 lander, named after a mythical Chinese goddess of the moon, touched down on Earth’s nearest neighbor following a 12-minute landing process. The probe carried a six-wheeled moon rover called ‘‘Yutu,’’ or ‘‘Jade Rabbit,’’ the goddess’ pet. After landing Saturday evening on a fairly flat, Earth-facing part of the moon, the rover was slated to separate from the Chang'e eight hours later and embark on a three-month scientific exploration.

A Long Island boy, 6, who was born without part of his left arm, whispered a wish into Santa Claus’ ear during a recent visit: he would like prosthetic arm so he can finally play an Xbox One, MyFoxNY.com reports. Insurance does not cover a prosthetic limb for Christopher Kiezek because it was determined that medically it is not necessary to his life. But Robert Jackson, a friend of the family, heard about the boy’s secret wish and started fundraising. “I cried,” Jackson told the station, upon hearing the request. He hopes to raise $25,000 by Christmas. Kiezek, who just recently started to take up fishing,

Despite the quiet here on this subject thus far at SiliconANGLE we have been keeping our eyes on what is possibly the biggest tech topic happening in the news right now. The issue at hand is the launch of ObamaCare online. It’s a hot topic that is philosophically dividing the country right now along political lines, along socio-economic lines, along just about every line there is to be divided over, many Thanksgivings could get cancelled over this (there’s also this big government shutdown) – it’s that contentious. Regardless of the variety of places to hear whatever facts and justification align

Washington - President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would "think about changing" the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans. Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place. "I don't know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
