6000 years

Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen (R – of course) argues for uranium mining  because the world’s managed to survive without any environmental protection laws for the 6000 years that it’s been around…  Seriously, how does someone this ignorant get elected to public office?  Behold the migraine-inducing dumbfuckitude:

    Seriously, how does someone this ignorant get elected to public office?

    It’s like this… Oh, wait. That was a rhetorical question.

    Of course,she’s right. She must’ve read
    Fred Flintstone’s diaries and, of course,
    the Old Testament and its mentions of
    precious gems, metals and woods animals
    and spices.

    So, that clinches the deal, doesn’t it?

    Once in a while something happens and
    the Black Death does in 1/3 of Europe and
    brings things back into balance.

    Then there’s malaria, dengue, sleeping sickness,
    earthquakes, floods and other acts of God to
    bring things back onto the rails.

    I’ll bet she never thought through the old
    anomaly that the most calamitous things to
    happen to humanity are called Acts of God.
    She wouldn’t see the irony in that, either.

    At least it’s Arizona. We have a woman like
    her in Toronto city council.

    Apparently that’s Gods way of getting revenge
    on us; she sends these awful women to ruin it
    for the rest of us.

    By the way, did you know that John Nunziata’s
    sister is on Toronto city council? Yes, that
    Nunziata. And there’s a family full of them.

    Just like Rachel Marsden and her family.

    FF – No seriously… how? How can anyone stupid enough to vote for someone that scientifically-illiterate actually figure out how to pull a lever or mark an X on a ballot?

    Are you shittin’ me??

    Well, there are some pretty biblically-inclined Democrats, too… Sen. Mark Pryor from Religulous, for example. (http://www.craveonline.com/entertainment/film/video/religulous-senator-clip-31455)
    I feel pretty bad for him, though. I mean, he lives in -Arkansas-. What are his options? Same as this lady, I guess; if they weren’t evangelical Christians, they wouldn’t have been elected in the first place.

  6. 6 Frank Frink Wednesday, July 8, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    OK, seriously then. Voters who also believe the Earth is 6,000 years old or believe some similar religion-infected claptrap.

    i.e. a lot of the voters are no better or brighter than the representatives they elect. So long as they believe in God, Christ, mom, apple pie and the American Way, abstinence and ending the convenience of abortion.

    Also, don’t forget to say “God Bless America” a million times a day on the hustings.

    But, bottom line? Stupid representatives and legislators reflect stupid voters.

  7. 7 Rob F Wednesday, July 8, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    This is also partly because (almost all) legislative distrits there are horribly gerrymandered. When politicians choose their constituents rather than having constituents choose their politicians, these are the sorts of people who get power.

    Keith Olbermann named her Worst Person In The World:

    Damn, Weirdpress doesn’t like MSNBC’s vids in the comments section. Oh well, the link is here.

    Isn’t Stockwell Day also good with the 6000 year old thing?

  11. 11 mouthyorange Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 4:18 am

    “So long as they believe in God, Christ, mom, apple pie and the American Way …”

    The problem is, they don’t believe in mom. They believe in dad.

  12. 12 blaffergassted Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 11:43 am

    She should eat crow.
    But I think that’s against the Bible.

  13. 13 Bruce Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    In any other country she would be laughed out of town. What gets me is the obvious religious assertion she so blatantly gets in while attending to an affair of the state.

  14. 14 Zorpheous Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    You know I have been enjoying avoiding these ignorant pissants of dumbfuckistan,… then I come over here and JJ depresses the shit out me when I read about these retards,… I’m going back to my tree and count my nutz

  15. 15 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    Zorpheus – The nutz aren’t in your tree, they’re in the government… but at least now they don’t have their hands on the nuclear football :shock:

  16. 16 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    Bruce – It would be very strange if it happened in Canada, but not so much in the states… they humour their wingnuts more than we do. But not for long, I hope.

    :lol: That doesn’t matter — they seem to cherrypick which biblical laws have to be followed anyway.

    Skydad. Or did you mean The Patriarchy? Same diff, I guess.

    Yes, Stockie is a young earth creationist, thinks Jesus rode a dinosaur etc. But at least he doesn’t mouth off about it in the house of commons while he’s debating bills. Yikes!

  20. 20 Torontonian Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    JJ,

    If you think your subject is mad what about this one
    I just found on Crooks and Liars?

    Have a look:http://crooksandliars.com/susie-madrak/naming-someone-who-hates-public-schoo

  21. 21 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    JAB – LOL, I love Olbermann. That woman is an enormous doofus, much deserving to be the Worst Person in the World.

  22. 22 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Rob F – So in other words, all the imbeciles are divided into the same districts, so they naturally vote in one of their own. Makes sense.

  23. 23 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    But, bottom line? Stupid representatives and legislators reflect stupid voters.

    One of the signs of a stupid person is irrational fear of intelligence, and I guess that shows in their voting patterns. The “intelligence is elitist” kind of thought is what’s dumbed down politics so much — stupid people electing other stupid people, who then go about the job of governing stupidly.

  24. 24 Zorpheous Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    Should Paddyboy be along any moment now to explain how this dumb twat really does believe in Science because she believes that we are evolving for the last 6000 years, so therefore it is ok for her level of ignorance,… so some such bullshit?

  25. 25 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    Lessica – Thanks for the link :lol: Maher is right, that’s scary. And it isn’t limited to Republicans… even Obama, who’s extremely intelligent, peppers his speeches with God stuff. It’s the way things are down there… the USA is one of the few really religious countries in the western world.

  26. 26 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Torontonian – OMFG, what is with these people :lol: Thanks for the link. Perry is one of the worst, with trying to put creationism in schools etc. And guess who’s going to be campaigning for him next month? SaWah!

  27. 27 JJ Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    Zorph – Some such bullshit, including making shit up and deliberately twisting and misrepresenting what’s been said. (Though I notice he never challenges people like SUZANNE. Interesting.)

  28. 28 Michelle Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    Alberta’s got an entire governing party full of people like that … and somehow they got elected.

  29. 29 mouthyorange Friday, July 10, 2009 at 2:26 am

    Yeh. Sick skydad and The Patriarchy. Dad to the exclusion of mom. An unloving, self-interested, controlling masculine persona that will not accept input from the feminine that would balance it. No love there!

    I wasn’t talking about balanced men or loving dads.

  30. 30 JJ Friday, July 10, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Michelle – OMFG, I forgot about our dear Alberta. Not that all Albertans are like that, but holy cow. That’s where the creation museum is :lol:

  31. 31 JJ Friday, July 10, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    orange – Good analogy.
