National Review Online
See her link to the Fred Thompson video. Funny. And Presidential.
In other presidential race news, Mike Jingozian is running for President. He is a bit confused — he’s running as an Independent but attempted to enlist the Libertarian support at a rally in California. Since he produces videos, we look forward to an Angelvision political video. A great line extension. (He’s the Presidential Candidate who hired a private investigator to spy on Your Business Blogger. I am honored.)
And see Huckabee.
AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas marriage license fee will would increase from $30 to $60 but would be waived for couples who take a premarital education course under a proposal the Legislature passed Tuesday, sending it next to Gov. Rick Perry.
The measure by Rep. Warren Chisum, a Pampa Republican, also would waive the state’s 72-hour marriage waiting period for couples who participate in the course.
The House agreed Tuesday to changes the Senate made to the bill. The major change was upping the license fee to $60, a move that had previously been batted down in the House. Critics had complained that amounted to a marriage tax on couples who choose not to enroll in the premarital course.
Chisum said an increasing divorce rate is “wrecking this country.”
“Our intent is to have healthy marriages,” Chisum said. “It’s now going to cost $60 to get married if you don’t take this course.”
The bill calls for an eight-hour course to cover such topics as conflict management and communication skills.
This, I don’t understand. Every woman in America is walking down the street talking to a boyfriend/husband/SO on a cell phone. And what is a woman’s first complaint about men?
“We don’t communicate.”
