Cosmo Sends A Reporter To Texas
To Declare That Texas Is The Worst

Texas Monthly, by Dan Solomon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/11/2014 6:09:00 AM

If you´re a media outlet that caters to a New York or California-based audience who consider themselves to possess liberal leanings, there´s an easy way to score points: Just talk about how awful Texas is. This is such a reliable way to get cheers from your audience that last year, The Daily Show literally ran a segment called "F**k You, Texas." The idea of Texas, and its 27 million people, as an easily-stereotyped monolith is a popular one outside of our borders. That´s something that became clear, once again, when Cosmopolitan sent reporter Jill Filipovic down to learn about what´s happening

Sorry, Cosmo readers. This effort is not going to drag Wendy Davis to victory.

Thanks Cosmo, for doing Texas a favor. We do not want any of your readers crossing our borders. They all lack common sense and logic, so they might not be able to find their way back across our borders. Keep them up there, with you, so we don´t have to shoot them.

John 8:44 "43"Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 44"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45"But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.…

1 JN. 2:15-17 "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever" (1 John 2:15-17).

Well let´s hope this article will keep women who love abortion from moving to Texas. We are a pro life State and want to keep it that way. We don´t want nor need you northern liberals with your love for killing babies, your atheism, your communism coming to Texas! Please just stay away and continue to turn where ever you live into a third world country hell hole.

If everybody in the country had it as bad as it is in Texas, we would never have had a recession. You can drive across the state line from Oklahoma (and we´re not doing that bad) and see the change. I have always been amazed at the resilience of the economy in Dallas - it´s like its own country, to say nothing of the rest of Texas. Texas is without a doubt the greatest state in the union. I have always dreamed that they would annex Oklahoma!

That all right NY, you can keep your abortions and TX will keep producing oil and gas. I mention that because your state sits atop the largest shale body in the US, but decided to rewrite the rules on hydraulic fracturing. That same year, they discovered the techniques of combining horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to get oil from shale in TX. In that same 7 year period they have increased production by 2 million barrels a day. So while you merrily end lives and regulate production, TX has chosen to regulate abortions and allow the production worth $200 Million a day. Who chose wisely?

Shame and silence on abortion in Texas? I assume that´s in contrast to pride and acclaim for abortion in New York. Do they announce abortions in the newspaper in New York, hand out merit badges for the most abortions and have bumper stickers that proclaim, "Save the Planet Have More Abortions"? If they do they are very good liberals but I suspect there is a good deal of shame and silence on abortion even among liberals in New York. Only truly sick or ignorant people celebrate killing babies. The reason liberals support abortion is because it is the easy solution and liberals only do easy solutions. You´re poor here´s some welfare, you´re sick here´s some government healthcare, you´re pregnant here´s an abortion. Fix the symptoms, never the disease and make a pretty good living doing so. Thank God for the people still willing to do the hard things. Tip of the hat to Texas.

Yes, all you lie-beral Cosmo readers, believe this Cosmo article. Please believe it!!!

Texas is a horrible place. Horrible, I tell you. If you come here, you probably won´t be able to get out alive. You will be subjected to every horrible thing that you can imagine, and then some. Did I mention how horrible it is here in Texas?!?!?

And you lie-berals that currently live in Texas know how horrible it is, so you should pack your bags and get out now before you are infected with conservatism!!!

There, if that saves Texas from any more lie-berals moving here to try to "save" us, I have helped do my part. Now excuse me while I go enjoy the beauty and conservative paradise (strong economy, low unemployment, friendly people, good Christian values, etc, etc) that Texas really is.

But, shh, don´t let the Cosmo readers know that...

Subscription to Cosmo cancelled years ago...in fact more than likely on Jill Ireland´s 30 birthday. So Texas is the worst. Well, get a clue, we don´t care much for you people either. In fact, we ask you not plan a return visit as you are not worthy of this state.

By the way, there are stories about that the ´Cosmo Reporter´ spent the entire visiting time in the Bar at Billy Bob´s. Riding the bronco, and drinking the suds.

Is the Obama crew smart

Washington Examiner [DC], by Mark Tapscott    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 5:29:34 AM     Post Reply
American outrage over the gruesome murder of journalist James Foley has prompted the appearance of a reversal of President Obama´s "leading from behind" foreign policy strategy, especially in the Middle East. For months before, as ISIS rolled out of Syria and across Iraq, leaving a trail of horror in its wake all the way near Baghdad, Obama seemed content to leave the Iraqis to their fate. He made new U.S. assistance, for example, contingent on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki´s agreement to step aside in favor of a more inclusive government with support from Shias, Sunnis, Christians and Kurds.

CNN has obtained and published an audio recording of a Ferguson, Missouri man engaged in what sounds like a sex chat with a woman. In the midst of it, you can hear gun shots in the background. These are presumed to be, although CNN says repeatedly that it has not verified the recording, the sounds of Officer Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown. Erik Wemple relates the story behind the recording. Various observers, including CNN’s talking heads, have tried to attach great significance to the audio recording.

Call the Islamic State What It Is: Evil

I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term “evildoers” to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn’t like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying “evil Dewar’s,” as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush’s statements chuckle-worthy — “We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar’s!”) I prefer single malts, but “evil” always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to “evildoers” was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc. “Perhaps without even realizing it,”

Taxpayer-Funded Millionaire

Millionaire and public intellectual Paul Krugman takes homes a $225,000 salary (to do no actual work) from the publicly funded City University of New York. And that’s only a fraction of his total earnings, which include a six-figure salary from the New York Times, where he writes columns that regurgitate Democratic Party talking points in an authoritative voice. Krugman’s latest is an attack on Gov. Rick Perry (R., Texas), who just took an exceedingly handsome mug shot and may run for president in 2016. Perry is also the governor of the state that leads the nation in job growth, a

Holder’s police-shooting hypocrisy
Washington Times, by James Bovard    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 4:53:26 AM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is enjoying a tidal wave of laudatory press coverage for his activism on the Ferguson, Mo., shooting and subsequent protests. In the 1990s, though, Mr. Holder ignored plenty of cases of District of Columbia black cops killing unarmed black civilians — even when policemen lied about the shootings. Mr. Holder was appointed in 1993 by President Clinton as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. At that time, D.C. police were killing more civilians than any other large city police force, based on population. The number of killings by D.C. police quadrupled between 1989 and

WASHINGTON — Panicked Democrats locked in tight midterm races as the party tries desperately to hold onto control of the Senate fear President Obama’s anticipated executive amnesty for about 5 million illegal immigrants may doom their re-election campaigns. New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who has seen her double-digit lead in the polls evaporate into a virtual dead heat with former Bay State U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, said any such move should be left up to Congress. Shaheen “would not support a piecemeal approach issued by executive order,” said her spokesman Shripal Shah, adding the Granite State incumbent “believes Congress must

After nearly four years of procedural delay, the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling is set to open shortly. Sterling was indicted at the end of 2010 for leaking information about a top-secret CIA operation to James Risen of the New York Times in violation of the espionage statutes. It is difficult to regard Sterling as in any sense a whistleblower, though, predictably, he calls himself such. He appears to have given Risen CIA secrets as a way to settle scores with the agency in a dispute over the presence of classified information in memoirs he sought to publish

The political subculture of anti-Obama leftists has entered a phase by this point in the Obama presidency where the truth of its worldview is so well-established to its own adherents that it requires no exposition. Tom Frank, an anti-Obama leftist, interviews Cornel West, another anti-Obama leftist, in a conversation so deeply marinated in shared assumptions that, at one point, both interviewer and interviewee agree that nobody disagrees with them. Frank asks West, “Is there anybody who thinks he’s progressive enough today? West replies, “Nobody I know. Not even among the progressive liberals.” What about maybe the 61 million people who

AUSTIN, Tex. — The trail to Rick Perry’s indictment began with way too many drinks and a drunken-driving arrest for Rosemary Lehmberg, the Travis County district attorney, that was captured in embarrassing detail on videotape. But the conflict between Republicans who control state government and the Democratic district attorney’s office has been playing out for years, forming a complicated back story to the unfolding legal drama known as the State of Texas v. James Richard “Rick” Perry. Mr. Perry’s powerhouse defense team filed a motion on Monday to dismiss the felony indictment, asserting that the 64-year-old governor and prospective 2016 presidential candidate

Of course, the good doctor can be excused, opining as he did in the late 18th century, long before Al of Gore emerged from a massage parlor to warn of us of impending ecological doom if we didn’t mend our ways (and start some lucrative carbon offset funds that would net him millions, or is it billions, before they disappeared

President Barack Obama´s decision to authorize aerial surveillance of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) positions in Syria suggests that airstrikes employing manned and unmanned aircraft may not be far behind. All of this is right and proper. Yet danger lurks. The head of Syria´s preeminent crime family—President Bashar Al Assad—waits, crocodile-like, for the American angler to tumble out of the boat. For Assad, opportunity knocks. If he handles matters correctly he can, with an assist from American inaction, return to polite society while others do the anti-ISIS heavy lifting for him. From the beginning of Syria´s 2011 popular

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them.

They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad!

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
