Texas Homeowners Should Expect Even Higher Property Taxes

Also expect more bond packages on the election ballot.

by Peter Stern

Governor Rick Perry and Texas legislators think they are fooling taxpayers.  In most cases they are.  Why else would Texas homeowners continue to approve road and school bond packages, along with other bond packages and increased tax rates?

GOP NIGHTMARE CONTINUES: There may be ‘mucho’ Skeletons in Chris Christie’s Closet

The Search Goes On...

by Peter Stern

Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie has stated many times that he does NOT want to run for President --- perhaps with good reason. As a former aggressive fund raiser and attorney,   Christie may have a lot of skeletons in his closet.   Why on earth would Christie want the publicity and scrutiny that would go along with his GOP candidacy?

Is NJ Governor Chris Christie 'the chosen one' for the GOP?

There is an interesting article in the conservative The Right Way that focuses on brash New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as the newest candidate being viewed to fill the void left by broken Rick Perry and those who wish to avoid Mitt Romney.

Governor Rick Perry and the Gardasil Mandate/Controversy...

and other special interest stuff...

Will Perry will do anything to push for his special interests?

by Peter Stern

The American Academy of Pediatrics must also lie because there have not been sufficient studies that prove Gardasil saves significant lives and that it warrants the use of the medication for ALL young 12-year old girls.   In fact, many young girls have reactions to Gardasil and could activate cervical cancer in some.

This revelation should be quite shocking to anyone who has been following the debate over Gardasil and mandatory vaccinations of teenage girls. First, it reveals that Gardasil appears to increase disease by 44.6 percent in certain people -- namely, those who were already carriers of the same HPV strains used in the vaccine.

Rick Perry Became Millionaire WHILE Texas Governor

Rick Perry Became Millionaire WHILE Texas Governor

by Peter Stern

Perhaps it is worth mentioning that Rick Perry became a millionaire DURING the time he has been Governor of Texas.

Shouldn’t that raise eyebrows? Shouldn’t the Ethics Committee care about that? Shouldn’t legislators stop protecting Perry? Shouldn’t Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott stop covering up Perry’s questionable expenditures and actions? Perry has flim-flammed Texans long enough and now he wants to do the same thing to the American people, running for President. Perry cannot be trusted on any level.

Babies between 1 day old and 60 days old cannot get private individual health care insurance plans

Children don't have many choices for individual health care plans.

by Peter Stern

We are having a big problem in Texas with providing coverage for everyone. Here is a case in point that I know many people are not aware of when it comes to insuring our children. It also is happening throughout the nation.

Texas Governor Rick Perry’s Drive to Maintain a Mythological Perception

Once a sociopath, always a sociopath

by Peter Stern

As I have stated so many times over and over for the past decade, Gov. Rick Perry is a sociopath and a liar. Perry would NOT know the Truth if he tripped over it. He can't help himself. He hasn't a clue. He is so used to lying about most everything that he believes the lies himself. That's part of the talent of a true sociopath.

Aftermath of 9/11: Rebuilding the World Trade Center

Ten years ago, the terrorists of 9/11 changed New York City and our nation forever. The tragic incidents were mass murders and the city came together in a unity that became a symbol of American grit and spirit. It took years to clean up the mass destruction in the area that became known as "Ground Zero" and the destruction of the Twin Towers at the old World Trade Center became a solemn landmark for all Americans.

All Eyes are Watching Indiana’s New School Voucher Program

Using Tax Dollars for Public Education and Private Schools

by Peter Stern

Last May (2011) Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, a Republican, signed-off on a state-wide voucher program bill and the result may be viewed as chaotic. Thousands of parents are pulling their kids from public schools and are placing them in private schools, of which many are Christian-based institutions that were previously sparsely populated.

Much of the chaos may be due to improper planning for the transition. The result is that the huge Exodus of children is taking a large chunk of tax dollars from public education and transferring them to the private schools. Neither public or private schools appear to be handling the transition smoothly.
