Believe it or not, Greg Abbott is even crazier.

Even though Rick Perry has received his fair share of criticism for his actions as Governor of Texas, there are some believe that his successor, Greg Abbott, has revealed himself to have even “crazier” ideas. Examples include appointing someone who was homeschooled by Christian parents to oversee the state’s public education system and organizing the state’s guard troops to ensure that president Obama doesn’t “invade” Texas during recent military exercises. A recent investigation has uncovered an even more troubling action on Abbott’s part: shaping medical policy based on advice from Scientologists.

Governor Abbott has recently vetoed a bipartisan bill which would give more resources to medical professionals that help residents dealing with mental health problems. The bill in question was widely popular, supported by many large medical associations in the state and both political parties.

Instead, Abbott killed the bill after receiving information from a Scientology group which believes that mental illnesses are a myth and that treating them causes more harm than good for the patients. Scientology, based on the writings of its founder L. Ron Hubbard, is strongly opposed to psychiatry in all its form and even compares mental health professionals to “terrorists” in some of its publications.

Think Rick Perry got Greg Abbott to run just so people would remember Perry more fondly?

The second he bowed (or already believed himself) to the Jade Helm bullshit, I knew he wasn't firing on all pistons.

Gonna have the Texas Guard keep an "Eye on things" during military exercises, Wtf? And if the military was conducting exercises around state invasion...how the fuck would the Texas Guard be able to tell? They think they're gonna have up little signs, in the shape of states at different points? Running up on them yelling?

Sergeant: "Vermont you maggots!!! Go, go go!!! For shits sake, that's New Hampshire! God damnit, I said Vermont!!!"

CO: "That's why we're here, training their sorry asses to know the difference. I expect better sergeant."

Sergeant: "Sorry sir! Get you shit together scumballs! Don't make me look bad in front of the CO! Jesus cocksucking christ Private Henderson, that's Massachusetts!

Texas Guard: "Oh fuck! They're learning their states...FOR INVASION! Call Gov. Abbott!"
