Stupid Quotes of the Week

Stupid things politicians say (which I realize is redundant in most cases)…

A week in review and as we look back, this past week was full of amusement. And in the interests of being non-partisan we have two entries:

1) President Trump, who while extolling the virtues of our founding fathers during Independence Day, talked about their bravery in seizing the airports during the Revolutionary War (which is dumb because any historian knows the Continental Army already controlled the airfields) and,

2) Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL), ( apparently trying to take over the championship belt previously held by former Rep. Corrine Brown) who said that the laws against making fun of members of Congress should be enforced and people who do that should be prosecuted (she will be retaking junior high civics class in the fall semester)

A Threat to the Country? Here’s One!

One of the biggest threats to our Constitution and system of government? It’s a proposal to expand the Supreme Court so that enough new justices can be added to overturn past Court rulings.

It’s hard not to feel outrage over this when you think of it. Our country is supposed to be a country where the ‘rule of law’ is what’s important-not your wealth, not if you were born into a noble or royal family like countries of old and everyone is supposed to be able to have their day in court. And the really great thing about the American system is that if you don’t like the laws, every two years we have elections and you can vote in different people to change the laws.
