5 Crazy Quotes From Rick Perry

Author: August 26, 2011 8:08 pm

Just when I thought the overblown and undeserved media attention generated by Bachmann and Palin–two hopelessly ignorant, mangled syntax spewers of vapidity and irrationality– illustrated how we were a stage 3, fully operational Idiocracy, the dumber version of George Bush (Rick Perry) stepped up and readily challenged that assertion. Time to get fitted for a tin foil cap!

Crazy Things Rick Perry has said

“Even if an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol once it enters his body, he still makes a choice to drink,” he wrote. “And, even if someone is attracted to a person of the same sex, he or she still makes a choice to engage in sexual activity with someone of the same gender.”

” I think in America from time to time we have to go through some difficult times — and I think we’re going through those difficult economic times for a purpose, to bring us back to those Biblical principles of you know, you don’t spend all the money. You work hard for those six years and you put up that seventh year in the warehouse to take you through the hard times. And not spending all of our money. Not asking for Pharaoh to give everything to everybody and to take care of folks because at the end of the day, it’s slavery. We become slaves to government.”

“I am a firm believer in intelligent design as a matter of faith and intellect, and I believe it should be presented in schools alongside the theories of evolution.”

On the BP Oil Spill, “From time to time there are going to be things that occur that are acts of God that cannot be prevented.”

From a guy vying for the top federal government job in the land, “There’s a lot of different scenarios. We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we’re a pretty independent lot to boot.”

  • rick perry has potential to run for president.

  • If I remember the story from the Bible, Joseph interpreted the Pharaoh’s dream about the famine and it was Pharaoh (the government at that time) that stored the grain for his people. Was that the beginning of socialism?

  • I am a super liberal. That being said, Quote one isn’t crazy at all. It’s the truth you don’t have to do the things you want to do. If it were any other way you would have to do what the Marquee De Sade suggested and “prove your inoccence or open up all jails”

    Quote three is the one on intellegent design being taught in schools. I don’t see why it shouldn’t be taught any more then Darwins Evolution should be taught. Darwin is being shown to not be fact about 4 times a year.

    In Closing Pluto is still a planet. Amen.

  • For someone who is accusing Perry & Palin of, “Idocracy,” one shouldn’t start off with a sentence that reads, ” Just when I thoughts the overblown and undeserved media attention generated by Bachmann and Palin–two hopelessly ignorant, mangled syntax spewers of vapidity and irrationality– illustrated how we were a stage 3, fully operational Idiocracy, the dumber version of George Bush (Rick Perry) stepped up and readily challenged that assertion.” He just joined their club!

  • “I am a firm believer in intelligent design as a matter of faith and intellect, and I believe it should be presented in schools alongside the theories of evolution. Then in a couple of years you stop teaching this evolution stuff, this is how you stop bad science and stop non believing atheists.”

    • Intelligent Design is a belief promoted by the Raelians, who believe that extraterrestrials genetically manipulated humans into the species we are today. Im frankly surprised that this idea doesn’t offend the Christian right. I am sure Mr. Perry meant that he believes in Creationism, but who knows these days. One whack-job idea is as good as another, i suppose.

  • Well, quote number one is just plain stupidity.

    Quote number two is just incoherent blather that is both stupid and insane.

    I have the least problem with number three. I see it as the least stupid and insane, though I don’t agree with it, but I think something like that is up to the individual person to decide. Yet, evolution is definitely the way I lean.

    Quote number four is just, well…just the most ignorant statement I have ever read in my life.

    Number five…well…I absolutely have no clue why someone would want to lead our Union of States who just does not believe in that Union, unless their ultimate motivation is to disband that Union. Which. Is. Scary.

    All in all, I really can not decide who is scarier or more stupid…perry or palin….but then there’s also bachmann and paul and romney…

  • I believe that the Obama supporters really want Goober Perry to be the republican opponent. Goober Perry may be the dumbest individual to ever run for the office of president. Obama will eat Goober’s lunch.

  • Anybody here ever used English before??

  • Texas in my rearview mirror.

  • Are these posters for real? Does anyone actually know the difference between Fascism, Socialism and Communism? They just seemed to be fancy words to the ignorant who like to banter them around. President Obama is a moderate liberal, not a “socialist” and definitely not a “fascist”. Rick Perry is closer to a fascist dictator because as President he would dictate what you do with your body, whom you could love and what religious following to choose. And all the while espousing the virtues of freedom from government.

    ramp up the criticism machines fellas you have reason to be running scared. even with an extremely weak field of candidates the republican’s may beat the incumbent fascist president. obama’s only hope (and yours i’m sure) is to further pander to the banks and corporations who originally put him in office and are determined to keep him there to protect there present and expanding interests.

    when you guys finally realize you have been duped and betrayed not only by your supposedly ‘liberal’ political buddies but also by the sordid ‘humanism’ that has no use for you as an individual it will be to late.

    but have no fear while you continue to deny the LIVING GOD you can go on distracting yourselves with visions of lofty self importance while simultaneously goosing each other, a popular pastime of your political persuasion…great life.

    falls on your knees and repent. that’s when your life will start.

    even homer simpson know’s that.

    • I live in Texas and been on my knees praying to get rid of Rick Perry as governor sense 2000 every day but as they say watch what you pray for. If your right Homer he will be my president, God forbid.

    • “Fascist? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    • Aquarian dreamer

      Criticism? I thought it was mockery. thats all the republicans have for the 1012 election, probably because they know that the Party of fear cannot overcome the party for Change, and has been able to only slow that change, not reverse it. and when you have BILLIONAIRES telling the republicans to shut up and change the system(that you know, favors them?) that should tell you whats really going on. oh and to quote the princess bride about your little attempt at smearing Obama with the term fascist? ” You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” if anyone, its the republicans who are fascist right now. but then, you prove your simplicity when you use God in an attempt to demean those of us who visit this site. me, I believe in god, I, however, am willing to admit that I am not smart enough to claim to know the thinking, or even the mind of a being powerful enough to shape this universe. hell, physicists aren’t smart enough to understand all the data, and can you prove that your intellect is greater than Stephan Hawking? given your rant I doubt its greater than the character you have based your nome de guerre on.

      as to being duped, I thought that the republicans were duped into electing a bunch of wild-eyed nutjobs who don’t have the balls(or possibly brains) to follow up on what got them into office( you know, that pesky Job-creation thing). how will slashing the budget do anything other than create HIGHER unemployment rates, hurt people who depend on the “entitlements” that republicans what to do away with and in the end worsen the recession into full blown depression with no real end in sight, because the government instituted economic security programs( the CCC, WPA, along with the more passive Social Security Administration) will no longer exist?

      I’d rather fall to may knees and pray your nutjobs DON’T get into office. it would be safer to play Russian roulette or play out in a busy intersection than elect any of the republican nominees.

  • I’ll hold back the volcano of eractions I ahve to this sad excuse for a humna, but will pount out one thing in regard to his second anaolgy above: That “warehouse” o the hebrews was collective. Yes, it was wise, yes it was solcialist, and none of it was for profit.

  • David freeman

    is that a$$h#@* from this planet? …oh yea i forgot he’s a texASSan
