    TEXAS ON FIRE.

    LIke Christie during the hurricane, Perry now dealing with the state on fire has become a sniviling little b**** asking for what from whom? Federal Government help whose fire responding workers has been cut. iF Texas is doing so well economically, why have so many state and city jobs been cut?

    BURN TEXAS BURN.
