The Dumbest of the Dumb

Louis Gohmert, Repugnican congressman from Texas (where else?), has got this immigration stuff down pat.  All these kids trying to cross into the U.S. are part of a unique plot by President Obama to "bankrupt the country and turn Texas blue."

These kids are sure to vote for Democrats, dontcha know?

Gohmert also offered a generous dollop of his wisdom by suggesting that these kids crossing the border are like those soldiers who invaded France on D-Day.  What we need is to begin a military operation against them; perhaps even using U.S. warships.

What?  So are we the Nazis now?  

The warships I'd like to see.  Send a couple carriers up the Rio Grande.

Hatred seems to be the policy du jour so far as the Repugnicans are concerned.  In the great state of Tennessee, noted for its backwardness, law enforcement officials have arrested a woman who gave birth earlier this month because she used drugs while pregnant.

There's some discussion as to whether Meth is one of the forbidden substances; it appears not.  So there is probably no case.

But consider:  A mother gives birth.  She's arrested and thrown in jail.  The baby goes where?  There's no plan to help the mother overcome her addiction, if she has one.  No sensitivity to who this woman is and what her life is like.  Just yank the baby out of the mother's arms and put the woman behind bars.   

The policy of Tennessee derives from pure hatred.  If you're poor, a woman, use drugs, etc., you are on the list to be dealt with severely by the godly puritans who run this dimwit state.  I'd guess not a few of the morons who voted for this law consider themselves followers of the legendary Jesus and more than a few take a few nips from the bottle on occasion.  Perhaps on special occasions, like when they throw a new mother in prison!

Bob Frey is a wannabe Minnesota legislator.  He's a Repugnican, naturally, and dumber than dumb.  Here's his explanation of where AIDs comes from:

“When you have egg and sperm that meet in conception, there’s an enzyme in the front that burns through the egg. The enzyme burns through so the DNA can enter the egg. If the sperm is deposited anally, it's the enzyme that causes the immune system to fail. That’s why the term is AIDS – acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.”

(Thanks to Daily Kos)

Speaking of dumb, there's another Repugnican politician who insists we don't have to worry about global warming because the temperature on Mars is the same as ours.

I wonder if there has ever been people this stupid in the history of the world.

Conservative equals stupid?  How can one get any more stupid than to destroy the environment in which one lives?  How stupid do you have to be to despoil the air you breathe by chemicals which are hostile to the environment and deadly to humans, including yourself?

There are severely demented people in this nation.  Some of them have modified their diesel trucks so that they spew carcognic black smoke into the atmosphere.  They do this because they hate the president and they don't want to conform to any EPA clean-air rules and regulations.

These trucks are known as "coal rollers".  You get an idea of the intelligence of the people who do this sort of thing from the comments of one clown in Wisconsin who said:

“To get a single stack on my truck—that’s my way of giving them [Obama & the EPA] the finger,” he added. “You want clean air and a tiny carbon footprint? Well, screw you.”

Maybe we could put all Republican members of Congress in a big school bus and tell them they're going on a field trip to the Grand Canyon.  Tell them also the bus is a "magic" bus designed by God to fly across the Grand Canyon.

Let Ted Cruz drive the bus.  Tell Ted that the other side is a conservative paradise ruled by rich, white men, and that Jesus is waiting for him on the other side.  He just needs faith to make the bus fly.

The bus might turn out not to be magic after all and there is no Jesus.  But we'd sure have an easier time governing the country.


Truth and Executive Orders

Bachmann, Palin, Boehner and other dimwits are walking around with their panties tied in knots because Mr. Obama, our black, Muslim, nogood President has signed off on so many Executive Orders, among other things.  And he's done these horrible deeds merely to spite the Republicans in Congress who have tried so hard to deal with him in a truly bipartisan way.

Because the Repubicans in Congress wouldn't agree with Mr. Obama's crazy schemes to make our country a better place to live, such as the Affordable Care Act, and because he then chose to move ahead without the recalcitrants in Congress by issuing Executive Orders to achieve his goals, Bachman and Palin and other white trash want to impeach the president.  Palin also believes that Obama's "failure" to secure our southern border is part of a bigger plot to do something which she is not sure about but must be also worthy of impeachment. 

Boehner just wants to sue him and he plans to do so just as soon as he finishes his golf game at Congressional.

One thing we have learned about Republicans in recent years is that they operate with the understanding that what you believe and what you say need not be related to truth or reality in any way.  That's why Republicans can claim global warming is nothing more than a liberal plot to deny corporations their rightful profits by forcing them to enact unnecessary environmental safeguards.

And that's why Republicans can say that Obama was responsible for the fiscal mess left by former president Bush.  That's why the current mashup in Iraq is also Obama's fault.  Facts don't matter. 

So far as Executive Orders go, the truth is that Mr. Obama has issued fewer executive orders than either Mr. Georgi W. Bushki or the Gipper.  Consider:  Reagan issued 381 executive orders.  Bushki issued 291.  In Mr. Obama's first 5 1/2 years he issued 168 Exective Orders.

Good luck with the impeachment and the lawsuit you dumber than dumb goofballs!
