Just a little humor...

As a reminder, these people are in charge of making laws.

By Bess Levin

September 14, 2022 WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 01: U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) scream "Build the Wall" as U.S. President Joe Biden delivers the State of the Union address during a joint session of Congress in the U.S. Capitola€™s House Chamber March 01, 2022 in Washington, DC. During his first State of the Union address Biden spoke on his administrationa€™s efforts to lead a global response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, efforts to curb inflation and bringing the country out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene haven't been in Congress very long, but they've made big names for themselves so far. As cartoon villains who vote against bills that benefit cancer patients. As bigots who vilify transgender people and want to criminalize transgender medical care. As bat-shit crazy lunatics who believe that Democrats are part of a satanic cult of pedophiles who eat children and that California wildfires are caused by Jewish space lasers. As people in charge of making laws who nevertheless say things like "gazpacho police," when referring to the gestapo, "peach tree dish," when they mean petri, and "wonton killings," when the word they were likely looking for was "wanton."

The latest instance of food-related linguistic terrorism came on Tuesday when Boebert — who is "tired of the this separation of church and state junk" and wants "biblical citizenship training" in schools — read a passage from the Bible about "wanton killings" but pronounced it like the Chinese dumpling. At no point did she appear to realize the error, and in fact seemed to suggest she'd be reading up on what "wonton killings" entail. Are they murders that occur over dim sum? Is it when someone is suffocated with dough and then buried under a pile of ground pork? Has Law & Order: Criminal Intent ever done an episode about them? Hopefully the representative from Colorado will do her own research and let us know.

Boebert's rhetorical gaffe, of course, recalls to mind a similar food-related foul-up from earlier this year when Greene, the other half of this Laverne and Shirley duo from hell, attempted to reference Hitler's secret police squad and instead invoked a little-known law enforcement agency made of cold tomatoes.

Several months later, the congresswoman from Georgia claimed Bill Gates wanted to force people to eat burgers grown in "peach tree dishes."

Not sure what else there is to say here other than the fact that these women serve as shining examples of why elected officials should have to prove they have an IQ of at least 50 before being sworn into office.

In my opinion, it's the American VOTERS who require a minimum IQ in order to be allowed to vote.  What a positive result THAT would create.

Yes, I can use absentee ballots.  It's handy that there is a Canadian consulate in the city where I'm living.  I will never give up my Canadian citizenship and passport.  But if you asked the question to make some comment about my IQ, unfortunately I just missed out being MENSA, but my brother made the grade.  He graduated high school the same year I graduated public school, and that year we both stood first among each school's graduates.  When the chairman of the city's Board of Education presented me at an assembly with my prize, he said he was amazed that he had just presented the same kind of prize and a scholarship to a boy at the high school who had the same name.  I told him it was my brother.  He said "You're parents must be very proud".   My father, who was in the audience was beaming so bright I thought he could light up the room.

Nope, that's not the reason asked. You never miss an opportunity to brag about how intelligent you are, nor do I doubt it.

I did ask for another reason which I will divulge in a PM as I'm not the kind of person that takes pleasure in embarrassing others publicly.

It's getting too late for me to send you a PM tonight, I'll send it sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Never miss an opportunity?  That's the first time I told that story.  Can you point out any evidence for what you accuse me of?  I think that a few years ago i mentioned that my brother was MENSA.

I'd settle for a math proficiency requirement.

"Says the guy that is Canadian, lives in China, but never gives up a chance to insult Americans, especially those that lean right."

Well, first of all at least I'm capable of appreciating and being comfortable in different cultures.  If I insult anyone it's because they deserve it, and even if I do I would only insult those who deserve it.  Besides, I happen to have a number of "leaning right" friends who are or were members of thenewstalkers who DON'T deserve being insulted and they are not.  If I did insult NT members, isn't it a wonder I almost never get a ticket?

Ridiculous bullshit.  My allegiance is with Canada, the country of my birth, citizenship and passport which I will NEVER give up no matter WHERE I live.  Ask your American expat friends where their allegiance lies.

Although I might be goaded, I don't intend to get a ticket over this.  But I think that anyone with a brain in their head would know that where a person has reasons to live somewhere, and I do, does NOT have anything to do with the country to which they owe their allegiance.  

THAT'S the end of the story.  Another ignorant taunting comment and I declare an IMPASSE.

The thing about this picture of "Laverne and Shirley" (from the article) is that it really just makes most American men just want to get the two of them really drunk.
