HERE'S SOME STUPID FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER
Here's some STUPID for breakfast, lunch, and dinner:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a leader in the anti-immigrant movement, said during his Sunday radio program that it’s possible that a Hispanic majority in the U.S. could conduct an “ethnic cleansing.”
Kobach made his remarks in response to a caller who asked, “What happens, if you know your history, when one culture or one race or one religion overwhelms another culture or race?”
“By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left," Boehner said in a statement on Thursday.
To: John Boehner From: American people
Re: Will of the American people
We overwhelmingly supported and asked for background checks and minimum wage increase legislation. You ignored us. Are you, therefore, lawless? Does the "will of the American people" only count when your party says it does?
We call bullpuckey on your silly tantrum.
House Republicans just passed a bill forbidding scientists from advising the EPA on their own research
The "reform" measure makes room for industry-funded experts on the EPA's advisory board
"Speaking on the House floor Tuesday, Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., summed up what was going on: “I get it, you don’t like science,” he told bill sponsor Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah. “And you don’t like science that interferes with the interests of your corporate clients. But we need science to protect public health and the environment.”
The House, alas, is staying the course, voting this week on two other bills aimed at impeding the EPA, including one that prevents the agency from relying on what it calls “secret science” in crafting its regulations — but which in reality, opponents argue, would effectively block the EPA from adopting any new rules to protect public health. The trio, wrote Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, in an editorial for the Hill, represents “the culmination of one of the most anti-science and anti-health campaigns I’ve witnessed in my 22 years as a member of Congress.” The White House has threatened to veto all three."
And here's some dessert to go with the STUPID for lunch and dinner:
Soon-To-Be Nevada Speaker Said Democrats Are The “Master” Of The “Simple Minded Darkies”
"One of the results of the GOP ‘wave’ during the recent midterm elections was that a number of state legislatures flipped over to Republican majorities.
[Ira Hansen, Nevada's new conservative Speaker of the House] "...wrote that blacks are not grateful enough to white people for ending slavery. “The lack of gratitude and the deliberate ignoring of white history in relation to eliminating slavery is a disgrace that Negro leaders should own up to.” Of course, Hansen didn’t limit his bigotry to blacks during his column’s history. Hispanics and Latinos were targeted quite a bit as Hansen constantly complained about gang violence and laid the blame on the Latino community. He also claimed, without any evidence, that an increase in Hispanics at a high school was causing more tuberculosis cases in the area. As far as women, Hansen blamed the “women’s liberation movement” on society’s ills."
This is how the TeaPublicans reach out to women and minorities -- by insulting them.
Watch this space for more STUPID for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
