So Rep. Todd Akin, R. Mo. believes that if a woman is “legitimately” raped, as opposed to illegitimately raped???, her body will deny its biology and prevent a pregnancy from happening. Hum!, very interesting. Rep. Hank Johnson, D. Ga. believes that if too many troops are stationed on Guam and they happen to go to one side of the island, it will tip over and capsize. All of the people will slide into the ocean. Also very interesting, wouldn’t you say? Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D. Tx., when visiting JPL, the jet propulsion lab, asked if she could see the picture of Neil Armstrong planting the flag on Mars. She apparently doesn’t know the difference between Mars and the moon. Incidentally she serves on the House Space Committee’s space subcommittee. Well placed assignment, huh?
is this all headed? I think I could write several pages of boneheaded
actions of some members of Congress. These three noted above are by no
means all of them. What we have here are three morons who are serving in
the Congress of the United States and idiocy is no respecter of party.
Both Republicans and Democrats qualify.
will say, but Ron, districts have the right to elect anyone they want
to be their Representative. If they want him or her why should I care?
The problem is that while they represent a small district, they serve in
a body which is much larger and whose actions and votes affect the
destiny of 330 million people, including me. Do you suppose they vote
based on their intelligence? Sheila Jackson Lee, according to her web
site, is a graduate of the University of Virginia and Yale University. I
wonder what her major was? I bet it didn’t have anything to do with
outer space. Akin represents a primarily white, conservative district.
Johnson and Lee’s districts are majority black. I am sure one of the
first requirements to being elected in a primarily black district is to
be black. I certainly understand that and have no problem with it but
that should not be the only requirement. Akin’s district is as he is,
conservative and white. Again those should not be the only requirements.
The problem is, of course, these individual representatives when
elected are inflicted on the entire country as Members of Congress.
These morons show up for work in Washington completely incapable of even
the most basic understanding of the legislative process. You can easily
see the results.
then is my proposal. Why couldn’t we have a simple standard IQ test for
people who want to run for Congress? There are other Constitutionally
mandated requirements. Why not require them to have at least a base
level of intelligence. I can see it now. As a part of their campaign
literature, they would offer not only their educational background but
in addition their IQ scores. It is pretty obvious that graduating from
the University of Virginia or Yale doesn’t guarantee intelligence.
as a country, are rapidly approaching a time when just a pretty face or
a strong oratory will not get the job done. It is easy to see what that
has brought us. We need smart people doing smart things. The last thing
on earth we need is idiots who speak out when they should be quiet,
example Joe Biden. I remember the old saying, “It is far better to just
sit silently and let everybody think you are stupid than to open your
mouth and remove all doubt.” These morons I have described above should
have taken this old adage to heart.
