It doesn’t take much for sheer stupidity to rise to the forefront of today’s Democratic party…Here are three of the latest shining examples….
“This is climate change…”..“This is climate change. We were warned about extreme weather: Not just hot weather, but extreme weather. When I had my hearings, when I had the gavel years ago — it’s been a while — the scientists all agreed that what we’d start to see was extreme weather.”
“Carbon could cost us the planet…”… “The least we could do is put a little charge on it so people move to clean energy..”
California’s lame brain Sen. Barbara Boxer(D), attempting to link the Oklahoma tornado to climate change, not to mention an excuse for a new tax….
“The lost tax revenue feeds a budget deficit that has reached troubling proportions. It has helped lead to round after round of budget slashing and the ill-advised sequestration that now threatens our economic recovery. Because of those cuts, children across the country are not gonna get early education from Head Start, needy seniors are gonna go without meals, fighter jets sit idle on tarmacs because our military lacks the funding to keep pilots trained….No company — no company — should be able to determine how much it’s gonna pay in taxes, how many profits they’re gonna keep offshore, how they’re gonna bring ’em back home, using all kinds of gimmicks to avoid paying the taxes that should be paid to this country. If you want to hold up a mirror, you can hold up a mirror to anybody you want. You can apologize to anyone you want. This subcommittee is not gonna apologize to Apple.”
Michigan’s moronic Sen. Carl Levin (D) attempting to lay blame at Apple’s doorstep for the country’s fiscal woes…It’s clear ANY successful company will be a target in today’s idiotic political climate. The way things are going, NO business will be allowed to make a profit. Apple did nothing illegal in its payment of taxes, yet these fools in the Senate like Mr. Levin will look for any scapegoat to cover up for their mishandling of our nation’s finances.
“So, you may have a question for me…”..“Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together.”…. “We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, we’re in this together.”
Rhode Island’s foolishly idiotic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D), again, blaming global warming for the Oklahoma tornado…and apparently the rest of the country too…
THIS type of thinking is what continues to do damage to our nation. These members of the Senate haven’t a CLUE what life outside of D.C. is like for everyday Americans. Yet, they can espouse idiotic commentary from their lofty positions…which I can GUARANTEE you not a one of them is worthy of the job…and we’re supposed to look at them as champions, as benefactors. Their shameless, disgraceful behavior in government is what should be the cause for concern. They are there to serve themselves alone. They carry a dangerous amount of power to influence life in this nation and on that they have miserably failed! They have no dignity and no shame. I see absolutely NOTHING in common with the likes of Boxer, Levin, or Whitehouse…as well as many other members of Congress. The sooner THIS type of politician is removed from office, the better for the nation!
