Gov Rick Perry calls 2nd Special Session

Recommended Posts

Gov Perry is trying to bring the dangerous and restrictive abortion ban bill back.

Anyone is free to call his office and oppose. (512) 463-2000. It may be busy, but keep trying. When the sweet woman answers the phone, say you are calling to oppose a second special session. She takes down no further information. I just made my call and it took a total of 30 seconds.

Gov Perry is such a prick and I know he is doing this just in spite of our recent "win".

She never asked. The secretary just said, "Thanks, I'll add you on the list." I'm assuming she is keeping a count of each side.

I just called, and the woman who answered gave me the exact same conversation. She did put me on hold for about 30 second, where I was treated to a recording of Perry's "accomplishments" playing on a loop.

What happens if this fails to pass yet again? Will ol' Rick hold his breath until he turns blue? (yes, please) Scream and cry and kick his feet? Throw stuff? Maybe if he continues to act like a spoiled, manipulative child we can get Michael Pearl to go all fundie on his ass.

I don't think area codes mean much nowadays, with everybody keeping the same cell phone numbers after moving to a new state.

When I called, I was put on hold. The background "music" was a recording of Perry talking about water conservation efforts. Then the secretary answered and took my call.

I hope his plans foil (again) and he will finally listen to what the people want.

I'm kinda hoping he'll... get voted out office, actually. Finally. And good riddance.

Can I call from Scotland? I could just say, 'Tell Rick he's a wee prick.' :D

The office is closed. Blast! I'll call again tomorrow. Just to be a real liberal pain in the ass, I just donated money to Wendy and put my money where my big mouth is. :mrgreen:

I will call and call and call and call, and I will have many of my friends call and call and call and call. It is time we collectively tell Gov. Butt Face to stop his nonsense once and for all. Stop abusing women and stop using tax payers money while doing so.

IMO, I think he is doing all this because his massive ego got hurt by a woman going something he could and will never do-- be a stand up person.

I want to call from Australia. I'm on a roll today. I made a special mostly black printout for opting out of the spam faxes I always get at work. Take that offending spam business toner cartridge!!!

I'll out in a call this AM! I had a great grandfather who fought at the Alamo (the only exciting person in my family tree it seems) and I'll go to battle in my own way for the women of Texas.

Btw...Governor Good Hair is only doing this to bolster his credentials for the 2016 presidential elections with socially conservative voters. He does not give 2 shits about what Texans want. Remember, this is the same man who signed an executive order for young women to get vaccinated against the HPV virus (a very non-conservative issue!). Oh, and the big pharma company Merck had donated a lot of money to his campaign fund. Ricky is all in it for himself, and I can't figure out why many of his constituents haven't figured this out either.

I called, and the Governors assistant was very put off that a constituent would dare call and question the Governor's stupidity. Now, I do not give a damn if she is annoyed or not, but do not be surprised if the person on the other end of the phone is rude.

They work in politics and need a thick skin. That said, fuck 'em.

ETA I called about a minute ago. It was quick and business like, but I was loaded for bear and now have nothing to do with my righteous indignation. Don't you hate it when you gear yourself up, and nothing happens :lol:

I agree. I understand they are probably getting their ass handed to them with calls, but I am not sure exactly what his office is expecting when their leader keeps pulling this kind of nonsense. They get no sympathy from me. :naughty:

Aw. Maybe it was just my lucky day. I do have a shit magnet, though. That could explain why they were rude to me. :lol:

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
