Subject: In memory of Ann Richards


Today we lost one true Texas treasure, Ann Richards. She was right in calling the fake Texan a jerk during their campaign here in Texas. We should be lucky to see
another lady like her in our lifetime! As a native Texan I am really sorry about what our state did to the rest of the country by helping to send the moron to Washington. I sent a very small contribution to your site reason it was so small is that I am suffering from the great economic times and super tax cut put forth by the W. Hope you will check out Google and do a search for the word failure, the first entry will amuse you!

Thank you so much James. Please, only donate what you can afford, I know how you feel.


Ann Richards was responsible for the name of this site.  I heard her call Dubya " all hat no cattle" on C-SPAN when I was looking to name my website.

Beware New Disease: Gonorrhea Lectim

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of Sexually Transmitted Disease. The disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behavior.

The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim and pronounced "gonna re-elect him." Many victims contracted it in 2004, after having been screwed for the past four years. Cognitive characteristics of individuals infected include:

>anti-social personality disorders,
>delusions of grandeur with messianic overtones,
>extreme cognitive dissonance,
>inability to incorporate new information,
>pronounced xenophobia and paranoia,
>inability to accept responsibility for own actions,
>cowardice masked by misplaced bravado,
>uncontrolled facial smirking,
>ignorance of geography and history,
>tendencies towards evangelical theocracy,
>categorical all-or-nothing behavior.

Naturalists and epidemiologists are amazed at how this destructive disease originated only a few years ago from a bush found in Texas.
