Here's some Stupid for Breakfast
UPDATE BELOW ON MORE STUPID FROM ANOTHER GOP SOURCE
An eighth grade student in Vermont approached Senate Minority Leader Joe Benning with an idea to establish a Latin motto for the state.
Vermont already has a motto in English, "Freedom and Unity," but not one in Latin, as do many other states. The eighth grader and others working on the idea came up with this Latin phrase: Stella quarta decima fulgeat.
The translation: “May the Fourteenth Star Shine Bright,”
Vermont was the 14th state to join the Union. It all sounds so straight forward and simple and patriotic, doesn't it?
What Representative Benning and the rest of the literate folks in Vermont didn't foresee was the firestorm of indignation and vitriol that would come from the folks in Vermont who, how should we put it delicately, have an IQ equal to room temperature in Vermont in January, and who don't know the difference between Mexico and Rome.
Dear Gourd! These people vote!
So, let's take a look at what the ninnyhammers in that state had to say about having Vermont adopt a Latin saying. BTW, as you read the comments, you'll find a striking resemblance to the commenters one finds at a certain Daddy blog, where illiteracy and ignorance rule the day.
CAUTION: Take care to remove all sharp objects from the room before you read this:
Dorothy Lynn Lepisto: “I thought Vermont was American not Latin? Does any Latin places have American mottos?”
Norman Flanders: “What next Arab motto??”
Kevin P. Hahn: “How about ‘go back south of the boarder'”
Richard Mason: “We are AMERICANS, not latins, why not come up with a Vermont motto that is actually from us”
Judy Lamoureux: “Throw him out of the country tell him to take obama with him!”
Phil Salzano: “My question is, are we Latin, or are we Vermonters? Alright then, English it is…..”
Lori Olds: “I thought this was USA why are they trying to make Americans aliens”
Chris Ferro: “That’s a BIG NO, if you live in the United State YOU need to learn ENGLISH!!”
Julie Kellner: “No, you a USA citizen!.. Learn & understand the language!!!.”
Kurtis Jones: “No cause vt ain’t no Latino area. Leave the motto alone”
Zeb Swierczynski: “ABSOLUTLY NOT!!!! sick and tired of that crap, they have their own countries”
Ken Curtis: “Just when I felt our represenatives could not possibly get any dumber , they come up with this…get real… this is the USA, not some Moslim or Mexican country…stop given in to these people…PRESS 1 for English and forget the rest… worry about the problems you were elected to do”
Ronald Prouty Jr. “No way this is America not Mexico or Latin America. And they nee to learn our language, just like if we go there they want us to speak theirs”
Kristen Wright: “thats un called for this is the usa”
Kelley Dawley: “How do you say idiotic senator in spanish? I’d settle for deport illegals in spanish as a back up motto”
Heather Chase: “Seriously?? Last time I checked..real vermonters were speakin ENGLISH.. NOT LATIN..good god…”
Would you like some maple syrup with that stupid?
