Sunday Sacrilege



Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois is now seeking the chairmanship for the Energy and Commerce Committee.

Here, in a hearing from 2009, he lays the groundwork for the argument that he's completely qualified for that position.

Will two years of these wackaloons in charge persuade the18-30 demographic that they need to vote?

Batshit crazy!

The Orange Man is going to have his hands full with the loonies.

These idiots are going to implode, I just hope they don't take the country with them.

Well he's right technically, much as George Carlin said... Man will NOT destroy earth, the earth's not going away, WE are. We've already invented plastic, our work is done here.

..and the Honorable Mr. Shimkus is right. It will be The Lord Almighty who will decide when it's over. The Earth is cleaner than it ever has been. These far left liberals are making up all of this junk science so that they can confiscate our earnings and direct those funds over to Socialist causes. I saw that there's a man who put together a movie saying that this global warming thing that Algore created is a hoax. Finally someone has the guts to stand up to Algore.

John Shimkus...what a dick this guy is. Here's everything anyone needs to know about Shimkus: He's HQ'd out of Collinsville, which we used to not-at-all jokingly refer to as Klansville. His district covers maybe 30% of the state, by area, and yet if it wasn't for college students, his district would have no measurable minority population...zilch. It's not a friendly chunk of the state for folks of color.

He's also so deep in the pocket of the coal industry that he should probably just go ahead and change his name to Lint. Putting this guy in charge of Energy and Commerce is like appointing Veruca Salt as the head of UNICEF.

Fucking nuts.

How come (so many) people don't realise that faith (or belief, or conviction) is completely opposed to blunt facts?

It's not that difficult to figure out...

I mean Shimkus is such an embarrassment. Good thing most other countries don't get to see this stuff. Not good for the U.S.'s international reputation.

than the Spaghetti Monster for Bill Onanist White. Robot Bill with his lovely satire shows us where the bat shit crazy really lives.

You have to realize that we get people like this in elected offices because a significant portion of the population thinks and believes the very same way.

Remember, everybody: God has the Earth's health well in hand and we don't need us to do anything to help with that.

But He needs us to pull together to stop same-sex marriage for Him or society will collapse.

Being good stewards shows lack of faith...being tolerant and just is a sin...

I don't understand how the same people who cite scientific studies as being made up to force the population into doing something can just take the existence of God and his rulebook and infinite power as a given. That's some selective critical thinking right there.

Religion has always been a tool to manipulate the masses. It should be no surprise that the most successful politicians wave it around so much.

@ L.

They are good at the "critical" part...less skilled with the "thinking" part.
