    Hick is awesome. Was the mayor of Denver for many years, one election the Republicans didn't even bother to run a candidate against him since his approval rating was 93%. Then he got elected as Governor in 2010 when by all rights a Republican should have been able to waltz in and take any office in the land. His first mayoral campaign ad showed him sitting at the bar he co-owned, drinking a beer. He's a very pro-business, socially progressive guy and I hope he makes his way to the national stage at some point. You'd like him!

    I love fan mail.

    well any company that wants to leave a state..Texas will take you and the people you bring with you and call it job creation rather than job displacement. Then the state will pay your corporate taxes for ya for the first 5-10-15 years while you adjust to the new environment and settle in. Oh now you want to expand and bring in a California branch of your corporation as well...well shoot y'all we are some damn good ole boys down here...we will just have to extend your tax break another 10 years. Could we at least use a Texas based moving firm to move y'all? it sure would help us because billy bobs trucking has put in the lowest bid and said it would help them create 2 new jobs.....hot dang!


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    I just hope that they resolve this issue. I'd hate to see the pubs tuck tail and flee the state to stall/prevent a vote. That is a parliamentary procedure reserved for the cowardly (i.e. dems).
