But don’t he look smart with his glasses on?

Posted: 09/01/2014 in Screwed

Remember back when Texas Governor Rick Perry decided it would be good for his presidential aspirations to pretend to be doing something about the influx of children across the Texas/Mexico border so he called up the Texas National Guard, gave them rifles, took away their ammunition, and sent them to the border?  How do you think that worked out?

Everybody made fun of him for that, and rightly so.  Still, he didn’t mind.  No skin off his teeth.  He planned to pay for the unbudgeted expense by suing the federal government for the money.  Just to make sure it didn’t wreck his budget, he hasn’t paid the soldiers yet.  So the soldiers and their families are living on food handouts.   Unlike the Governor, they have to buy food first, then turn in receipts in order to get reimbursed.  I’m not sure how they’re expected to pay their other bills.  You know, the bills they were paying for with the paychecks from their real jobs.  The jobs they were working before Governor Glasses decided to call them up and send them to the border for a photo-op.

Kinda makes me all teary-eyed.  You know, ’cause I’m soooo proud to be a ‘Merkin.


Be seeing you.
