Rick Perry's Objective: "Chief Executive of a Large Enterprise With Good Benefits and a Really Large Personal Jet."

During Remarks at the Texas A&M Commencement Convocation last Thursday, Texas Governor Rick Perry dropped a not-so-subtle hint that he would like to be president in 2016. Perry began by welcome his parents to the event and talked about how graduates need to "go get a job" and be "off the family payroll." He spoke of keeping education affordable so students wouldn't be a "slave to massive debt" once they get their diploma. He talked a lot about freedom and invoked the words of Abraham Lincoln, referring to the so-called "altar of freedom."

"We commemorate the heroes who have served in all the wars of the previous generations, and the modern day warriors of this generation...These solemn traditions, and these powerful memorials, are the evidence of our reverence for those who gave their lives in great causes and of the value we place on sacrifices made on the altar of freedom," Perry said.

On November 21, 1864, Abe Lincoln wrote a "brief, consoling message" to Boston widow Lydia Bixby, at the request from Massachusetts Governor John Albion Andrew. Wikipedia notes "Lincoln's letter to Mrs. Bixby was printed by the Boston Evening Transcript on November 25, 1864, the same day it was delivered to her by the Adjutant General of Massachusetts, William Schouler. The following is the text of the letter as it appeared in the Transcript: 'Dear Madam, I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours, very sincerely and respectfully, A. Lincoln"

Continuing the presidential rhetoric, Perry honored those veterans with the Texas A&M "Aggie spirit" who "were put on this earth to defend the precious right of liberty; to answer its call when it is threatened at home or abroad... They have liberated millions from the yoke of oppression, protected their loved ones back home and offered their lives in full measure for freedom."

"It is the yearning for freedom that is within every soul's DNA," Perry said. "Texans were put on this earth to push the envelope of freedom, and expand its horizons. What would we have if we didn't have freedom?"

In an ominous reference to terrorism, Perry warned that "large doses of vaccines" may ne needed "to respond to a bio-terror attack on our nation."

In the largely lighthearted speech, Perry noted he is ready to travel to Iowa and New Hampshire and is "proficient in Facebook and Twitter, and a frequent poster of hashtags and selfies."

Note that Perry referred to freedom that is "threatened at home or abroad," revealing his foreign policy ideals and 'pre-emptive war' mentality of the neocons which Congressman Ron Paul often referred to. Just this month, Paul sent out an e-mail criticizing the "Iraq war based on lies pushed by the rabidly pro-Israel neocons" to "help that country dominate the region." According to the 'Just War' Doctrine of St. Augustine, which in the past was at least attempted to be adhered to by Christians, "Preemptive War" for "regime change" and "war on a very vague war on terror with no prospect of success" are "totally immoral." Pope John Paul II, who was recently Canonized a Saint by the Catholic Church, had warned of "The Propaganda Machine, Widespread Use Of Another Deadly Instrument Of War." This Catholic tradition goes back centuries and was also invoked in the 1930's when Father Charles E. Coughlin, a popular radio broadcaster who spoke out against the danger of foreign entanglements, warned that "propagandists are at work in government, in journalism, and in the cinemas. Forewarned is forearmed!"

Meanwhile, as Jeb Bush announced his potential 2016 presidential run, Rand Paul Hang out with Dennis Kucinich. Paul recently joked on twitter that a Hitler reference "sounds like a lot of Senate debates" and in reference to the viral story of a cop buying a shoplifter's carton of eggs, opined that "the vast majority our police force do care about those living in poverty".

To cap off his speech, Perry used the opportunity to humbly refuse Texas A&M's bid to re-name the University's Academic Building after him.

Here are excerpts from Perry's speech:
"Parents play such an important role in our lives that I decided to bring my own, please welcome Ray and Amelia Perry. For some of your folks there must be a sense of relief seeing you graduate this week, knowing you will finally be off the family payroll. They wanted me to convey a simple message to you: go get a job!

Actually, come to think of it, I'm in the same boat! Even the best jobs don't last forever, but I have to say it has been the highest of honors to serve as your governor for 14 years, and as this state's first Aggie governor.

Because I will be competing with all of you for a job, I got a head start on my resume. Under objective, I wrote, "highly motivated professional seeking a position as chief executive of a large enterprise with good benefits and a really large personal jet." Under experience I wrote, "managing the world's 13th largest economy, and overseeing a group of people who bicker a lot, otherwise known as legislators." Under skills I listed, "experienced public speaker, well-worn veto pen, proficient in Facebook and Twitter, and a frequent poster of hashtags and selfies." I also mentioned I can drive most farm equipment and used to fly multi-million dollar aircraft for the United States Air Force. Lastly I put this in bold print, I am willing to travel for my job, and listed my preferred destinations: Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

I ask the Regents, the Administration, the deans of our colleges, the faculty, every employee and everyone who loves Texas A&M to join in the cause to keep Texas A&M affordable and accessible for the next generation of Texans. We need more ideas like the ten thousand dollar degree plan, ideas that make college more affordable so students are not prohibited from receiving an A&M degree or a slave to massive debt once they do. We have to keep the customers first, and the customers of higher education always have been, and always will be, the students.

To those students I say, it's your dreams we empower, your future we determine. I want children of the most modest means to be able to pursue their dreams, and to do so because of Texas A&M. At its core, education empowers people to make the most of freedom. It is easy to be misled about the availability of a college degree, and in particular an Aggie degree, in the midst of thousands receiving one. But only a small percentage of the world's population enters the workforce with a college degree. A lifetime of opportunity awaits those who are educated, and prepared for the opportunities of the future. With a quality job comes greater personal freedom, and it is the yearning for freedom that is within every soul's DNA: that desire to make the most of this one life, through the realization of one's talents

We Texans are an independent lot, and have been even before William Barrett Travis drew a line in the sand at the Alamo. It is that independent fighting spirit, that belief that no task is impossible, that led to the victory at San Jacinto, that inspired the wildcatters at Spindletop and that allowed "Houston" to be the first word spoken on the moon. Texans were put on this earth to push the envelope of freedom, and expand its horizons. And Aggies were put on this earth to defend the precious right of liberty; to answer its call when it is threatened at home or abroad... They have liberated millions from the yoke of oppression, protected their loved ones back home and offered their lives in full measure for freedom.

What would we have if we didn't have freedom? What could we achieve if men and women were not free to build great institutions, great communities, a great life? You who graduate today inherit a legacy of freedom that so many before you risked all to provide. Make the most of it. Live lives worthy of it. And be men and women of honor and integrity."
