Holy Bullshit

Stupidest. Fucking. Legislation. Ever.

Your Congress (not) at work. Read it and weep.

UPDATE: Congress passes stupid resolutions all the time (Freedom Fries, anyone?) and apparently this one was a spiteful response to an earlier resolution offering "respect to Ramadan and the Muslim faith" put forth in October, and this resolution's sponsor Rep. Steve King [R-IA] admitted as much. For spite. Mighty "Christian" of him. At least one could argue that the Muslim one had useful p.r. benefits abroad, and was in response to some ill will and persecution...but still, fucking stupid and not appropriate.

UPDATE 2: King's measure passes overwhelmingly 372-9 [results], with 10 protesting "Present" votes and 40 not voting. Interestingly Dems "Yeas" outnumbered Republicans 195-177. Jackasses all. My Congressman (Old Man Dingell) voted "Yea."

WTF?

at least Congress finally recognizes that Christianity is one of the greatest religions in the world...

Mr Furious said...

And I'm sure there's nothing else they could be working on...

This is fucked up. What's the point? To thwart those of use who are evil secular humanists?

Deb said...

The chasm between church and state is quickly shrinking to the width of the average paper cut.

Mr Furious said...

Following up on the results...the whole point of this crap is not just to make insecure religious Congressjackasses feel good and pander to their equally stupid constituents, but also to force Democrats into casting a vote "for" or "against" Christmas.

Smart Democrats (of which there are apparently only nine) should have regarded this as the waste of time that it was and voted "present." Intead, almost two hundered of them cast a throwaway "Yea" vote that contributed to the steady erosion of the wall between church and state.

Morons.

Well look, if we can't win that pesky "War on Terror," we might as well try to win the War on Christmas, right?

All of these resolutions, regardless of what statement they are resolute in making, are bullshit. It's literally empty words on a paper. Ridiculous.

Mr Furious said...

Fridge, I think what you meant was...

Whereas the Congress has actual important shit to do, and wasting time on ridiculous, innappropriate religious posturing is fucking fruitless, not to mention unconstitutional: Now, therefore, be it Resolved--

(1) that this is literally empty words on a paper.

(1) that all of this is complete bullshit and ridiculous.

(2) members of Congress are fucking morons.

(3) Mr. Furious would like to shove a cross up your ass.

(4) No, wait...make that a Bible.

(5) Hell, make it both.
