Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

A Third-World Country With Good Roads

The second-largest state in the Union and we can't even keep our state parks open. And Perry's solution is to CUT the Department of Parks & Wildlife Budget even more. Absolutely pitiful. As I have often said, it's a pity that stupidity isn't painful.

Bugger! I think that Texas roads are terrible, and having lived in both Texas and Minnesnowta I know good roads when I drive on 'em. In fact, the differences don't stop there. In every way these two states are the antithesis of each other.

And (more on topic) sorry about your park situation.

Teddy Roosevelt must be spinning in his grave. Conservationism truly is dead in the modern GOP, crushed beneath the onerous, stinking weight of big business interests. You can almost see the marionette strings attached to Perry's limbs. Oh well. At least we'll get a new mega-10-lane-freeway running through the state. That's KIND of like a park, isn't it?

kvatch: yeah, Minnesota has that whole sick obsession with good government and honesty. Our philosophy, meanwhile, is that you if you can't steal their money, screw them and drink their whiskey, you have no business being in politics.

eric: There are SO much reasons for TR to be spinning in his grave, we should hook him up to a dynamo.
