Full-Frontal Stupidity - Tuesday Edition: Rep. Pete Stark D(imwit) - CA
Further proof that California has become the land of Fruits and Nuts. Sadly, the voters of this state chose to put these nuts into office in Sacramento. While I get someone using absurdity to point out the absurd, the fact is our borders are as secure as this States financial dealings - that is to say leaking like a sieve.
I'm also remiss if I do not point out while the MSM refers to a smart-ass Democrat as "edgy"; the same press would refer to Conservatives making a similar comment as "hateful", or label them "Nazis". Typical Liberal thought process at work.
A California congressman known for edgy sarcasm mocked an opponent of illegal immigration during a town hall meeting last week, asking, "Who are you going to kill today?" before the constituent, a self-identified Minuteman, posed his question.
"We can't get enough Minutemen armed. We'd like to get all the Minutemen armed so they can stop shooting people here," Stark said.
Eventually, members of the audience urged Stark to offer a serious answer.
"If you knew anything about our borders, you would know that's not the case. Our borders are quite secure, thank you," Stark said, drawing jeers.
Stark resumed his hostile act, asking the Minuteman what he would do to secure the border.
"I would send about about 25,000 troops for one thing and build a wall down so vehicles could not pass," the Minuteman said.
"How high and long would it be?" Stark asked.
"As high and as long as it takes," the Minuteman said, elicting cheers.
Stark said he would start a ladder company with the Minuteman if he designed the wall and doesn't shoot the people coming over.
"But I've got to know how high the wall is and I'll sell a whole lot of ladders for people who want to come," Stark said.
"This is a very serious matter and you're sitting there making fun of it," the Minuteman responded.
"I don't have to make fun of you sir, you do a fine job all by yourself," Stark said.
Stark made the comment last week at a town hall audience that included Steve Kemp, a member of the Golden State Minutemen, a group that opposes illegal immigrants.Kemp recorded the confrontation.
The clash came as the national spotlight focuses on Arizona tough new law cracking down on illegal immigrants and the protests it is drawing across the country, including a legal challenge from the federal government.
