Ah, Texas; the "Lone Star" state. The state that gave us the roughest, toughest, meanest, nastiest President ever! And even her son, George W Bush became President later on. Land of the super nuts like Ron and Rand Paul (Rand grew up there),Louis Gohmert, Randy "Screaming 'Baby Killer'" Neugebauer, and the guy who apologized to BP Oil after the spill, Joe Barton. Also, Rick "Whoops" Perry (we sure loved you wearing that Brokeback Mountain jacket, dude) and who can forget Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, who once told a group of college students that “the greatest threat to America is not necessarily a recession or even another terrorist attack…The greatest threat to America is a liberal media bias".

And now we have Jr. Sen. Ted Cruz.

Texas - land of the dinosaurs.

Are they still talking about seceding? What happened to that wonderful and unique idea. It's not too late Texas. Keep up the fight!! Then you continue with your super duper laws against gays, women, children, mentally disabled and all spectrums of brown people. Remember that really great anti gay marriage law idea? You can then finally pass it, along with this really keen one you tried in 2010 to criminalize sodomy. Yes, the state that wants the federal government out of its bizzness wants to make sure your doing your sex the proper way, and will institute a law to make sure, by dang it.

Texas, land of higher edumacation!

Ted Cruz was sent to the Senate by Texans to stir thing up like any loyal Teapublican should. He's only been in the Senate for 7 weeks and he's already got laryngitis from talking so much, something that is usually frowned upon with jr Senators. But, he is on a mission from God, just like all teabaggers, to make Obama and any other Democrat that even seems a bit progressive, life a living hell. His goal this week, kill the Chuck Hagel nomination. And he's doing a pretty good job, though he is quietly being compared to Joe McCarthy (I rather think he's flattered by that). The McCarthy comparison is not far off base, he hinted, with no proof whatsoever, that Hagel may have received compensation from foreign enemies including North Korea!

Well, Mr. Cruz does have a point doesn't he? I mean, Chuck Hagel has been paid from speaking engagements and how do we know if the money came from one of our many enemies like North Korea or France - unless he proves that he has not taken money from them!

I like this idea Senator Cruz. People should be honest, especially those in public service to our country. That is why I am asking you to please address these issues as they come up:
You came from Canada born to Cuban immigrants and you acknowledge that your father fought for Castro to overthrow Batista in the Cuban Revolution. So, can you please prove to us that you are not a spy for Castro? Do you receive money, drugs, or small child sex slaves from the Cuban government? Just curious.

Also, have you rescinded your allegiance to your birth country, Canada? Do you regularly cross the border, illegally, to Canada? And if so, what is your business there? I'm just asking because Canada has a bad meth problem and there have been reports of headless bodies strewn across the tundra of Minnesota.

Thanks for addressing these issues, once we have proof you should continue your fight for the good of Texas. Oh, and America as well.

The problem with Texas is the same as the pre-Copernican view of the universe - they think the rest of the country revolves around them.

Go home, Rick Perry

by Dante Atkins for Daily Kos

The rivalry between Texas and California is no secret, and it goes far beyond the fact that they are the two most populous states in the nation. While neither state is monolithic in terms of its political ideology—Texas has deep-blue Austin while some inland parts of California are a startling shade of crimson—the politics of each state has been marked by radically different ideologies. California's main power bases of economic and political power include two of the places conservatives most love to hate: San Francisco and Hollywood. Meanwhile, every single statewide elected official is a Democrat, and Democrats have dominated the state legislature, despite the roadblocks along the way. In recent years, the state government has sought to invest in projects like high-speed rail and solar energy, often taxing itself for the privilege Texas, of course, is just the opposite: a conservative ideological paradise funded substantially by the oil industry, with low taxes and a belief that government is the problem, not the solution.

Because of its ideological ramifications, the rivalry between Texas and California is more than just competition for bragging rights between the nations two heaviest hitters; rather, it is ground zero in an ideological proxy war between the progressive and conservative factions of larger-scale national politics. And in recent years, as the Lone Star State was experiencing its so-called "Texas Miracle" while California was limping along from budget crisis to budget crisis, it was far from uncommon for conservative ideologues to point to the contrast between the two as evidence of the success of conservative economic policy.

Unfortunately for them, the tide has turned on this view. First, the so-called Texas Miracle turned out to be a sham masked by a combination of rapid population growth, high oil prices and low wages. Ironically enough, it was billions of dollars in stimulus funds that was propping up Texas' budget solvency. When that ran out and the economic crisis finally showed its full effects, the state faced a crippling budget deficit of $27 billion, and was forced to make massive cuts to Medicaid and education to stay afloat.

California, meanwhile, has been on exactly the opposite trajectory. The voters, sick of the tax revolt that had been artificially maintained by the Republican minority, voted in a series of structural reforms that loosened the minority's stranglehold in Sacramento and followed that up by passing two tax measures to promote green energy and protect our schools from further cuts. Combined with the economic recovery that has been taking place nationwide, these changes were enough to put California's budget back in the black for the first time in many years, even as Texas suffers from high poverty, low wages and a drastically failing education system.
