You Cannot Fix Stupid
Despite al Shabab’s call urging terrorist attacks on shopping malls in the United States, Congressional Republicans are determined to deny funding the Department of Homeland Security unless President Obama abandons his immigration policy. Yes, indeed, ladies and gentlemen. They are that stupid.
Now, don’t misunderstand. I would abolish the Department of Homeland Security, if I had the power to do so because I do not believe we need it. Unlike most security conscious Republicans, I do not lose sleep worrying about possible terrorist attacks. I figure I have a greater chance of being killed by the furniture in my house than being killed by a terrorist. I do not respond well to politicians playing the fear card.
Playing the fear card is what Republicans do best. God knows they have no coherent plan to fix anything, so all they seem able to do is attempt to frighten everyone to death.
The second thing they do best is to hate Obama and blame him for everything that has gone wrong, is going wrong, or will go wrong in the world. They blame him for everything because they cannot abide having a black president.
They hate him so much they are willing to cut off funding DHS just to smite him for his plan to provide a path toward citizenship for illegal immigrants who have no criminal record and have children who are U.S. citizens.
Yee Gods! Hide the women and children.
You can’t fix stupid.
