If These Guys Only Had A Heart

Or a brain.  Tom Delay, and by extension, most Republicans and the media that drools over their every word, believes that people prefer to live on unemployment checks that barely cover their rent and that they enjoy standing in line at food banks instead of getting a job.  Like a true Republican he doesn't let facts get in his way.
"You know," Delay said, "there is an argument to be made that these extensions, the unemployment benefits keeps people from going and finding jobs. In fact there are some studies that have been done that show people stay on unemployment compensation and they don't look for a job until two or three weeks before they know the benefits are going to run out.

Host Candy Crowley: Congressman, that's a hard sell, isn't it?

Delay: it's the truth.

Crowley: People are unemployed because they want to be?

Delay: well, it is the truth. and people in the real world know it. And they have friends and they know it. Sure, we ought to be helping people that are unemployed find a job, but we also have budget considerations that are incredibly important, especially now that Obama is spending monies that we don't have.
Perhaps if you and Bush hadn't given the rich people all those tax breaks or allowed American companies to move their headquarters and manufacturing offshore so they wouldn't have to pay taxes, there might be jobs available. I'm a person in the real world and as I drive around town I see empty buildings where businesses used to be.  Mr. Delay, you aren't just willfully stupid, you are a jackass.

Walt Baker just couldn't keep his stupid under controleither.  He just had to send an email comparing the First Lady with a chimpanzee.  How a state as pretty as Tennessee can produce such backward people does boggle the mind.  I almost feel sorry for its citizens.

And then here comes Texas,it might not be the largest state in the Union, but it is definitely trying to spread its stupid to every impressionable child.  In a few years the United States will be completely out of the running in technology and medicine.  Or hasn't anybody noticed that a good proportion of the doctors don't speak English as their primary language?  And for those of you who believe that evolution is a theory and not true, I would like to remind you that gravity is also a theory and as of today nobody has said it doesn't work.
Christian-based materials dominate a growing home-school education market that encompasses more than 1.5 million students in the U.S. And for most home-school parents, a Bible-based version of the Earth's creation is exactly what they want. Federal statistics from 2007 show 83 percent of home-schooling parents want to give their children "religious or moral instruction."
No wonder they don't understand the consequences of inbreeding.
