BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 5, 2011 • ° , . , , , , • , ,,+,, Page 15 • News Briefs (Continued from Page i) "Boots Drop into &apos;12 Race Soon The governor of Texas is finding a receptive audience among some donors and sup- porters looking for a strong GOP presidential candidate in next year's race. Politico says Governor Rick Perry has started calling Iowa Re- publicans about a possible 2012 campaign. Not that long ago, he had them standing at the Iowa Republican Leadership Conference where the audience started chanting, "Run, Rick, Run." Perry wowed the crowd when he declared that "the liberty that inspired our fledging nation to throw off the chains of oppression" is "being constrained daily by new regulations, obligations that seek to empower gov- ernment, not the people." As one national newspa- per stated, "In contrast to President Obama, Governor Perry has an answer when he's asked where are the jobs: 'Right here, in Texas.'" Federal Government Vs. Pennsylvania Family: Guess Who Wins??? The U.S. government was right to claim I0 rare gold coins each worth millions from a Pennsylvania family back in 2004, a jury recently decided. The family handed the coins over to the feds to verify they were real, and the government then argued that since the U.S. Mint never officially released the 420 "Double Eagles," the coins in the possession of the family for decades must hav'e been stolen and re- mained the property of the government. Only one of these coins has ever been sold and it brought in 47.6 million at an auction in 2002. The Federal District Court will rule on a motion that the government is the right- ful owner of the coins. The family is expected to appeal the decision. I think things aren't looking good for them, are they? Doesn't the gov- ernment have the burden to prove the coins were stolen? I guess not, huh? Remem- ber the old saying? "We're the government and we're here to help you!" SURE!!! Election Photo IDs State legislatures across America have passed a number of laws requiring photo identification to vote, a move supported by Repub- licans and as usual opposed by Democrats. Those sup- porting the idea say it will cut down on voter fraud, but opponents say it will keep the poor, the elderly and the young from voting because these groups may not carry identification on them. Some opponents of the lib- eral stripe call this new leg- islation a calculated strategy to hold down voter turnout among liberal leaning Democrats. However, state Rep. Pat Harless, R-Houston, who sponsored the voter ID measure at the State Capi- tol in Austin, Texas, said that it is "just a way to help protect the integrity of in- person voting." America Continues to Grow Go to any shopping mall and watch folks walking around. It appears that obese people are everywhere. I wasn't surprised to read that 30 percent of people in 12 states were fatter than they should be. Obesity is a grow- ing problem in America. No state reported obesity to be below 20 percent. Partly I feel it is due to the fast food craze and partly, I blame the computer where people just sit on their butts all day long and play games, go on Facebook or whatever. I remember someone I knew who told me how tired they were after jumping across so many roofs. When I asked them what roofs, they said the computer game they were playing. I looked, laughed and told them the only exercise they were getting was to their fin- gers on the keyboard. By the way, this person was rather chunky which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Too bad they don't have games pretending folks were eating food because that might be the only way these sad folks will ever get the skinny on their weight.
