Rick Perry opposes reductions in force in the Texas National Guard. Because! Because, so much, that he made up a laundry list of reasons.
As for those natural disasters, if you'd concentrate on not overpumping groundwater and reducing what Texas is doing to cause climate change and global warming, you'd mitigate disasters and save a whole bunch of money right there.
As for "War on Terror," please, Rick. Go back to your video cameras to catch the bazillions of illegals you said they would. Maybe you should have taken a page from Kinky Friedman and pasted money on each camera or something?
