Gov. Hair plays politics with our health


We've already established the fact that Gov. Hair doesn't give a damn about Texas schoolchildren and now we learn he doesn't care that much for the rest of us either.

Texas is this country's A-No. 1 polluter. We emit more crap into the air than any other state in the union. In fact, we contribute a whopping 35 percent of all the bad stuff that is all too rapidly melting the polar ice caps and giving me this nagging cough that I've been saddled with of late.

So the Environmental Protection Agency -- that liberal department created by the noted radical President Richard Nixon -- told Texas to clean up its act .. er, air. So what does Gov. Hair do? Does he act in the public's interest? Do pigs have wings? Of course, he doesn't. You can't make a jackass into a thoroughbred no matter how hard you try, and Hair is always going to be a jackass.

To prove my point, instead of making the state's environment suitable for human habitation, he sues the EPA. Trust me, I'm not making this up. This clown has the unmitigated gall to tell the feds that while Texas does indeed have more oil refineries, chemical plants and coal-powered generating plants (which contribute heavily to his election campaigns) than any other state, all that carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perflurocarbons and sulfur hexafloride they spew into the air is really good for us and it's all just a coincidence that Texas has been experiencing prolonged droughts and increasingly more savage storms along the Gulf Coast. And, if it's not a coincidence, Texans can't stand it -- they're frontier souls, by gum and by golly. So what if you have all these Nobel Prize winning scientists who say this stuff is harmful; Texas has a Secretary of Agriculture and a bunch of Chambers of Commerce who says it isn't. So stick that in your chimney and belch it.

I keep thinking this man can't sink any lower, but he proves me wrong almost daily. He's a menace, determined to destroy Texas's future while he vainly tries to enhance his own present. Sarah Palin was merely a joke as governor of Alaska, but I don't remember her being nearly as dangerous as Gov. Hair.
