Spray-on liquid glass is transparent, non-toxic, and can protect virtually any surface against almost any damage from hazards such as water, UV radiation, dirt, heat, and bacterial infections. The coating is also flexible and breathable, which makes it suitable for use on an enormous array of products...WOW!

Texas GOP Official Platform excerpts

"Abolish the Bureau of Tobacco and Firearms, the position of Surgeon General, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Departments of Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Education, Commerce and Labor. We also call for the de-funding or abolition of the National Endowment for the Arts, and Public Broadcasting System."

...supports teaching of intelligent design (a form of creationism) and teaching evolution as merely a theory rather than scientific fact.

"We reject the establishment of any mechanism to process, license, record, register or monitor the ownership of guns."

"The Republican Party of Texas affirms the United States of America is a Christian Nation ..."

"Our Founders expected that Christianity -- and no other religion -- would receive support from the government...

"The Party urges the IRS be abolished," and the following taxes eliminated: "income tax, inheritance tax, gift tax, capital gains, corporate income tax, payroll tax and property tax."

(read the REST - thanks,!)
