Wendy Davis’s Secret
Weapon to Win Texas

Newsweek, by Pema Levy

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/2/2013 2:07:23 PM

Wendy Davis should send Rick Perry a muffin basket, because he may have handed her a winning issue in her longshot bid to succeed Perry as governor of Texas. It may be counter-intuitive that Davis, a Democratic state senator running for governor in a red state, would bring up the controversial health care reform law, but it might be a risk she needs to take. In order for Davis to defeat Attorney General Greg Abbott, her likely Republican opponent next November, political strategists say she needs to win big among two key demographics: Hispanics and white women. Among Hispanics in

Comments:
Everything I know about Hispanics is that they are family-oriented, male-dominated and against abortion. None of those indicate Wendy Davis would do well with them. I think Governor Perry´s record with the Hispanic vote is a good one.

Another pipe piece to advocate for abortion barby. The money that will be pumped into this race will be astronomical. That is from the communist side of the political sphere.

Newsweek only exists in the winds of the internet.

As does Abortion Barbie´s chances of winning in Texas. But all the money that her finance director, Nancy Pelosi, sends to Texas is appreciated.

After seeing Wendy´s image on stage along side that of Molly Ringwald, the site was enough to make me chant voodoo spells on any here who are not ´true Texans´ How on earth did Wendy (and let´s include Molly here as well) get as far as she did?

#4, Wendy Davis represents a fairly conservative district in Tarrant County, part of Fort Worth and the northeast county. Her first marriage was just out of high school, ending in divorce with one child. Her second marriage was just out of law school, ending in divorce with a second child. She has filibustered the Texas Legislature twice, forcing Perry to call an expensive special session each time. The first was in 2011 over a cut in state spending, the second in 2013 over the abortion bill. She is widely considered one of the three most liberal state senators.

So, Wendy has had two children and two divorces.

Are we to assume that she regrets not aborting those two children? Otherwise, why has she sought to make this her signature issue?

Hispanics aren´t unlike most of any other demographic. Late term abortions, killing viable tiny little babies is murder, evil and abhorrent to most everyone. It´s not just our Texas, this chick would be really dumb to run on THIS bandwagon even in a number of more red states!

Personally, I´m happy abortion Barbie decided to run for governor. She will draw heavy investment from the abortion lobby and the DNC, drawing resources from other Democrats. As mentioned, Mexicans are very opposed to abortion, particularly late term, and this is the issue that propelled Davis into the spotlight. All the feminist hype of Davis will be neutralized by a wheelchair bound Greg Abbott being a highly accomplished Attorney General in a very high profile state, who has never used his handicap as leverage when seeking office. I´ll be proud to support him, and predict a double digit victory for him.

The Dems have realized that white male Marxists don´t poll well. So they now package their tyranny with non-white, non-male faces. Think Obama, Hillary, etc.

Wendy Davis is being modeled after Patty Murray of Washington. She was a life long leftist radical, but ran as a "fresh faced mom in tennis shoes". See the pattern, folks?

When a white guy tries to debate her, all of the usual suspects declare outrage at "attacking a woman". It´s a model that works unless she makes a big offensive blunder.

Never underestimate the left.

Yo..yo...Mexicans will vote for any Dummyrat that runs on the Dummyrat ticket. If idiots want to abort their children the Mexicans don´t care. Just means that Mexicans will become a greater portion of the population as the other people abort their potential children. I just watched a pregnant Mexican pushing a baby carriage with an infant and three other kids holding on to her skirts. All under five years old. They will take back the country by out breeding everyone else. Just the facts. They couldn´t give a hoot about non-Hispanics getting abortions. Just means Mo power fo them down the road.

#19 Mexico never owned the country.

Check out the Treaty of London (1604) A former king of England laid claim to everything, more or less, as King of Spain ~ then his son decided he ought to start dividing the place up for development and he crammed down a treaty on everyone.

That´s the one. There was no Mexico

By 1700 ~ roughly ~ there was the War of Spanish Sucession. Lines and claims changed as a consequence. There still was no country called Mexico

English colonies began claiming Coast to Coast ~ there was no Mexico.

The US respected Spanish claims in the Revolution because, lo and behold, Spain was an American ally.

The English colonies became states ~ with various claims intact ~ coast to coast. They gave up their holdings East of the Mississippi to the new national government.

Somewhere after the Napoleonic wars Mexico came along, ...... but not before then.

The Mexicans are trying to take property Mexico never had an unquestioned right to claim ~ nor did they ever provide it with water. Witout water that land is worthless.

What Obamacare Means for Your Taxes

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service.

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget.

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

According to the AP, an estimated 15,000 homes in Navajo Nation don´t have electricity.

We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
