Concerns Over Guam "Flipping over" Shakes Up the Web from Dimwit Dem Congressman

These people are in charge of US? Frightening to say the least.

Below, a clip of the exchange. Concerns over Guam's ability to stay literally or figuratively afloat  fromt he absent minded dem occurs at around the 1:18 mark. The other stuff is funny too and makes it clear why this guy may not be kidding if you can decipher his Ebonics.

He says he was "using a metaphor" which to me is BS because frankly, since I don't understand a freakin' word he says about anything during this rambling dialogue that sounds like a ten minute scene from "Grady on Sanford and Son".

Yahoo! Buzz: "On April 1, anything suspiciously bizarre or interesting is to be taken with a shaker full of salt. Still, a recent comment from Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) has many wondering if he's misguided on gravity and geography or just a very gifted deadpan comedian.

At a March 25 meeting of the Armed Services Committee, of which Rep. Johnson is a member, the esteemed congressman had an interesting discussion with Robert Willard, commander of the United States Pacific fleet. The topic: Guam. Specifically, how an influx of Marines and their families may cause the tiny island to 'tip over and capsize.'

The comments were delivered without a clear hint of sarcasm or irony, however Rep. Johnson is now insisting through a comment issued by a spokesperson that he was simply using a metaphor.

'I was using a metaphor to say that with the addition of 8,000 Marines and their dependents -- an additional 80,000 people during peak construction to the port on the tiny island with a population of 180,000 -- could be a tipping point which would adversely affect the island’s fragile ecosystem and overburden its already overstressed infrastructure.'

Maybe so, but Admiral Willard responded to the question with the utmost sincerity. His answer to Rep. Johnson's concerns over Guam capsizing like a lily pad playing host to an obese frog (our words)...

'We don’t anticipate that. The Guam population, I think, currently about 175,000, and again, with 8,000 marines and their families, it’s an addition of about 25,000 more into the population.'"


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
