Again 

We walk away from where we once stood 
We knew the love we shared couldn’t last 
Separation is always understood 
To each our life 
Responsibilities 
After the hard times we’ve been through together 
It’s so funny that separation has brought us 
To our knees 
We embrace 
Smile and walk away 
I can’t turn back 
I only wish to stay 
I’ll miss you 
When you’re gone 
I can’t help but think about you 
But life goes on 
Why must we leave 
Why can’t I stay 
Next time we talk down this beaten path 
I’m turning back your way

I’ve been leaving documentation as a reminder of the life changing decision I’ve made today. For personal reasons I no longer will partake in ANY drug use whatsoever. For me, this has been primarily cigarette smoking. For health reasons, this can no longer be a part of my life…as well as any other substance. I’m quitting cold turkey, because I am adamant about this change, and I am looking forward to starting over. Life isn’t easy. I know what I will have at this point. I will have a clear, sober mind. I will have a healthier body and I will cleanse myself of the health issues that are ailing me. It is rather important that I state my complete sobriety also stands independent of my health issues. I need to do this because my entire life has been constituted with fillers. I value my life and my being, and whether I endure pain and suffering I will take that as it comes. I love the vessel I inhabit. And I love the man I’m becoming. So, here’s to sobriety. 7/23/14.

Rick Perry sending up to 1,000 National Guard troops to further militarize borderlandsJuly 23, 2014
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) announced plans on Monday to send up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, saying they will bolster security efforts to prevent criminals from taking advantage of the current crisis there.
"I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor," he said at a press conference. "We are too good a country for that to occur."
The number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally has increased rapidly, with more than 57,000 apprehended by border patrol agents since the beginning of October 2013. Most are coming from Central America, and officials say they often turn themselves in to border agents rather than evading them.
Perry and other Republicans have said National Guard troops at the border could help deter children from crossing illegally and aid with efforts to care for them once they’re in the government’s custody. The Monitor and Bloomberg News first reported Perry’s plans on Monday morning.
Texas officials said the effort will cost about $12 million per month. The state plans to bill federal officials for the costs they incur.
"Texans are willing to put boots on the ground, but we expect Washington to foot the bill," said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is running for governor as a Republican.
President Barack Obama said after meeting with Perry earlier this month that he was open to deploying National Guard troops, but he has not yet done so.
In response, Republicans have urged the states to go it alone. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) announced a resolution last week to support the constitutional authority of governors of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California “to take action to secure the international border of the United States within their States.” Twenty-six fellow GOP House members signed on to the resolution as original co-sponsors.
Perry and fellow officials focused on criminals crossing the border illegally rather than the unaccompanied minors. He said “the plight of” the children was rightly attracting attention, but said criminals were exploiting the tragedy as border patrol agents are distracted from other duties.
"The price of inaction is too high for Texans to pay," Perry said.

Fuck Rick Perry. Fuck your borders. Fuck your National Guard. All are welcome in the borderland. 
Our border existence must mean resistance!

Rick Perry can endlessly suck a fuck.
