Paul Broun, ignoramus extraordinaire!
Mr. Broun has said many really ignorant things in the past but this time he's proven he's also a lunatic and does not belong in our Congress or any law-making body. He's a fanatic christianist who cares nothing for science, or evidence, or reality!
But his previous lunacy has followed the path of most christianist fundy politicians:
Broun has voted to ban federal health coverage that includes abortion. He sponsored a bill to define life beginning at fertilization. He voted to ban federal funding for Planned Parenthood. He wants to declare the unborn persons under the 14th amendment.
Broun voted to end the Home Affordable mortgage program. Voted NO on the stimulus program. Voted NO on an economic recovery package. Voted NO on monitoring TARP funds to ensure mortgage relief. Voted NO on the GM and Chrysler bailout.
This nogoodnik voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation. He wants to amend the Constitution to define "traditional marriage." He voted against enforcement of anti-gay hate crimes.
His record is almost entirely negative when it comes to funding for education. On energy, he's a typical Republican bought and paid for by the oil and gas industries. He wants more drilling, and he doesn't want the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases. Anything to do with protecting our environment, Broun is against. And he's a prodigy of the NRA, believing that most everyone should have guns almost everywhere!
Health? Well, he's an MD, but he's against it. He voted to defund Obamacare and voted against any resolution that would offer more health care opportunities to the American public.
But he loves Jesus and the Bible. So, back in 2007 he suggested that Congress "Recognize Christianity's importance to western civilization, and in April of last year, he wanted to "Designate [the] first weekend in May as Ten Commandments Weekend.
The man is a nasty piece of work which he proved last month when he got up in a Baptist church and said:
"All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. ... And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."
Jesus Christ! This clown is on the House Science Committee! Talk about irony! Talk about stupidity!
Evolution isn't in question - it's the basis of everything we know about life on earth! Without evolution we're absolutely lost. Science is our way of understanding the universe and who we are! Evolution is true. The Bible is not!
Perhaps we need a method of recalling our representatives if they prove to be so stupid they are a danger to themselves and the rest of the nation. Broun would qualify.
There was a report today that climate change is impacting our life much more rapidly than we had thought. What the scientists believed was decades away, is happening right now and nations in the South Seas will need to take immediate action to save their populations. The ice is melting and the seas are rising. Broun, being a relatively young man, may live to see the waves wash over him even as he pontificates about religious nonsense and fights any attempt to deal with global warming!
Couldn't happen to a more stupid person!
