John "The Bully" Boehner Being Stupid

Image Source
After the recent Amtrak crash a reporter asked John Boehner about Republicans cutting funding for Amtrak and infrastructure. In response to what sounds like a valid question to me, Boehner the  current Speaker of the United States House of Representatives responded with "Are you really going to ask such a stupid question? Listen: You know they (Democrats) started this yesterday. It's all about funding, it's all about funding. Obviously, it's not about funding."  and the sad thing is, this is the top Republican in the house. It might not be about funding, but it might also be about funding.

Some other dumb statements by Boehner:

"We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal." In trying to justify his leadership of the do-nothing congress. - Source

"Redefining marriage diminishes the social pressures for husbands to remain with their wives and children, and for men and women to marry before having children." Ummm, yeah. Because prior to legalizing gay marriage husbands and wives always stayed together and waited until marriage before having children.   - Source

In regards to Obamas agenda “We're going to do everything — and I mean everything we can do — to kill it, stop it, slow it down, whatever we can." Well that is a good attitude to have John. - Source


"the idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical. Every time we exhale, we exhale carbon dioxide. Every cow in the world, you know, when they do what they do, you’ve got more carbon dioxide" I don't think I need to comment on the stupidity of this one. It stands on its own. - Source

No Vote Can't Find Models

I made a joke when I saw the image that the vote no campaign is using in Ireland. The couple in the image didn't look Irish to me, which seemed funny because it is about Irish families.

Well it turns out, that the couple in the picture support gay marriage. The couple in the image allowed a friend to use it for stock photography, and the no campaign bought it for that. Apparently the no campaign couldn't find an actual couple who wanted to be the faces of the no so they had to buy one.

Vote Yes Ireland

Living in Washington state where we voted yes to legalize marriage, I want to encourage everyone in Ireland to vote yes on May 22nd. Washington hasn't fallen into the ocean, god hasn't thrown balls of fire down, and people haven't started trying to get married to their horses or other pets. In fact, life has continued on just like it did before.

Equality
Marriage Equality Ireland

So vote yes Ireland!
