Liberty -vs- Tyranny
You just can't make this sh*t up. Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry obviously fails to understand how our nation of laws work. Even following a United States Supreme Court ruling that a law is Constitutional. Apparently the slightly light in the attic Governor Perry has determined that 'implementation of the national health care reform law constituted "a criminal act."'

One thing is for certain. If the Governor decides to run for the highest office in the land he will MOST CERTAINLY provide those who haven't jumped the shark with comic relief.
