On a computer related note, Perry touted his support of tort reform in his announcement. This is the governor of Texas, home of the east Texas patent troll friendly court. Hypocrite.

Mr. Perry wants to pick and choose the parts of science he "believes" in:

Here's a little tidbit that shows just how far corruption goes:

Congress is exempt from insider trading laws. So when they have to vote will they be helping the voters or their pocketbooks? Legalized crime.

I hope (but do not expect) that Americans vote for someone who is capable of reading, understanding ideas, using logic, and not being a total moron like this Perry bloke.

The FACT (another word for "Theory") of "Evolution has far more evidence than Gravity, does Mr "dick-head" Perry also think that Gravity has "holes" in it as well.??? Hopefully he will fall into one.

Look at the top one on the list, this is the "Scientific" meaning of the word theory, it simply does not mean "an idea" that some idiots think that it does, or even "insist" that it does.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/theory

This is why I am trying to use to the word "FACT" in such instances to avoid morons arguing on the meaning of the word.

Some unimportant facts that would never have been made public under a republican administration.

usually all we hear is something like "ATT buys Tmo and doubles prices, get over it."
