Perry, DeLay, Dewhurst, Spoiled Children

RECEIVED Wed., Aug. 13, 2003

I can't believe that I even have to write this ... I hope Gov. Perry, Tom DeLay, and David Dewhurst can hear me loud and clear when I say when you are dead, lie down! Stop embarrassing yourselves with this blatant display of impotence. With the budget crunch, record-high unemployment rates, and the more than 40,000 people in North Austin with damaged homes and property, it just behooves me to come up with any sort of reasoning that would justify spending millions of dollars of taxpayers' money on special sessions that will never come to anything. For once, I wish the Republican Party would take the high road and admit defeat to spare the people who have to pick up the tab for their petty squabbles. Unfortunately, our elected leaders must instead behave as spoiled children who pout and throw tantrums until they have their way. You all should be ashamed of yourselves for being too greedy and immature to care about the people who put you in place.
