  • Texas Gov. Rick Perry defends states' right to legalize marijuana

    AUSTIN, Texas - Gov. Rick Perry defended Colorado and Washington's legalization of marijuana on Thursday, saying it was an issue of state rights, while touting initiatives in Texas as national models for keeping minor drug offenders out of jail.

    Chief Justice John Roberts said Wednesday what has long been known but seldom spoken. During the third and final day of Supreme Court hearings on whether the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is unconstitutional, Roberts said states have been compromising their sovereignty for decades through increased reliance on the federal government for money and accompanying directions on the governance of state affairs. "It seems to me that they have compromised their status as independent sovereigns because they are so dependent on what the federal government has done," the chief justice said during Wednesday's nearly three hours of...

    State Rep Candidate Issues Call for Bill to Censure the Actions of Barack Hussein Obama: The Obama administrationís foreign policy is appalling and it is now the duty of whoever stands for elective office to speak out about it. We as a state can initiate trade agreements with our allies. We can pass resolutions condemning a shameful administration that apologizes for American heroism while defaming its staunchest allies. It is noteworthy that Barack Obama has not only alienated Israel, Americaís most steadfast ally. When members of his own party saw fit to rid Honduras of Ernesto Zelaya, a communist bent...
