Tools in the News

A common thread running within just about everything that ticks me off is the idea that somehow, I am an idiot. The mainstream media, along with many Democratic congressmen and Hollywood moguls all seem to trumpet the idea rather loudly that we are a nation of simpletons who simply don't know what's good for us.

The latest example of many comes from Representative Paul Hodes (D-NH).

Regarding critics who argue that lawmakers do not even read the bills they are voting on, Hodes said it’s not realistic to expect members of Congress to read every bill word-for-word, as Congress took more than 2,000 votes in the session that ended in December.

“I think you would slow down the business of Congress to a crawl and it would be hard to get done what needs to be done. It’s not necessarily the major problem with the way Congress functions.”

So not only did Hodes vote for Porkulus, not only did he vote for cap-and-fraud, but he expects us to somehow have sympathy for people that make what is perhaps the highest hourly pay in the nation!

In case my gripe here isn't clear, dear reader, let me make myself clear: I want congress to slow down. When every piece of legislation passed in a legislative year is a worthless boondoggle, the less the better. Paul Hodes is a certified tool on the order of John Conyers. Try again, Sir.
