Is Guam at a Tipping Point?
When you put ignorant people in positions of power, you will create opportunities for inane moments like the one caught in THIS video.
Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson, he of the Democrat persuasion, naturally, worries that the addition of 8,000 U.S. Marines and their families on the island of Guam will cause it to "capsize."
Obviously disappointed to hear that this is unlikely, he then starts worrying about the coral reefs and global warming.
Rep. Johnson voted for the health care bill, and he will probably vote for a lot of other nice socialist stuff as long as the electorate permits him to follow Nancy Pelosi over Marxist Falls.
Mark Hemingway of The Washington Examiner's "Beltway Confidential" believes that Rep. Johnson's remarks are "too dumb to mock."
But calling to mind the words of Samuel Adams, Patriot of 1776 -- "If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will be in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." -- I believe our patriotic duty is to mock.
