Texas Wildfire Victims: “Fuck You Very Much Rick Perry”
No, the Texas wildfires aren’t “God’s punishment,” no matter what Michele Bachmann says. But the fires have been greatly exacerbated by Rick Perry’s twisted priorities. This year, Governor Rick Perry slashed funding for the state’s volunteer fire departments.
Texas’ volunteer fire departments were already under a huge financial strain. Rick Perry took care of that problem by reducing their funding from $30 million to $7 million. That’ll give ‘em something to whine about.
More than 100,000 acres — and more than 1,000 homes — have been destroyed by the fires that are raging across Texas as we speak. Way to go Rick Perry.
