Dumb & Dumbest

A DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of 'why' our country is in trouble!

1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)
2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts.''

Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa ''

His response -- click.
3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried t o explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

He replied, 'don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!'' (OMG)
4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada?''

I said, ''No.''

She said, ''But they look so close on the map.'' (OMG, again!)
5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.'' (Aghhhh)
6. An Illinois20 Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.

I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.
7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?'

He replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!''

After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, Ca. is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.
8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?''
9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright (D) from Alaska who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?''

I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.''
10. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) called and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?''

I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane.

She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''
11. Mary Landrieu (D) La. Senator called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa 'Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.''

I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ''Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!''

12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.''

I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?''

'Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied the man.

After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a rhino anywhere."

''The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!''

So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?''

The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.''
Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it's in!

Could anyone be this DUMB?

Being White In Liberal America

Liberal: You're White

Me: Well, ya but I'm 1/32 Cherokee, Danish, French and Irish, oh and some German and Swedish.

Liberal: But You're White

Me: Ok, I'm White

Liberal: You're a Racist

Me: No, I don't really pay attention to people's race. I respect all humans no matter their heritage

Liberal: But You're White, You don't want Mexicans to come into this country, You're a Racist

Me: No, I am not a Racist. I respect all Mexicans that want to immigrate to our country legally, that's what they expect of us. I told you I respect all humans.

Liberal: You're White. You don't consider Blacks to be human that's why your ancestors had slaves.

Me: No, my ancestors were from Europe. I believe in the US Constitution that says that "All Men Are Created Equal." I respects all humans.

Liberal: You're White, founders who wrote the constitution were White just like you. Some of the signers had slaves. Conservatives defend the constitution. Conservatives are White, Conservatives are Racist. You're a Conservative.

Me: Well, yeah I believe in the founding documents of our great nation, and if that makes me a conservative then yeah, I guess I am. But I am not a Racist

Liberal: You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist.

Me: Can't we just talk like two human beings about the issues that matter to all of us?

Liberal: You gave up your right to have a civil discussion the day you were born White. We are in control, You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist. Now sit down and be quiet. You have run this country for over 200 years, America is a racist country, it's our turn now.

Me: Isn't that a Racist Attitude to call me a Racist just because I am White?

Liberal: Ok see that's what I am talking about. You are like a 'pot calling the Kettle Black'. You are calling me a kettle, you are calling me black and that's Racist. You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist

Me: Whatever..Ok you win..I'm White, I'm a Conservative, I'm a Racist.. Go John McCain!

Me: Sheesh, I wish that I could be judged by the content of my Character and not the color of my skin. . .

Republican Extremism

I am always amazed whenever a conservative wave sweeps the Republican base (conservatives make up the majority of Republicans and Independents) and the media screams EXTREMISM. But this time it's so laughable I must blog on the topic.

Let's see, in 2008 the Republican party nominated a guy who is a little to the right of Joe Lieberman (Democratic Vice Presidential candidate in 2000). This resulted in disgust in the base and zero political capitol or influence. We went so far left that McCain and his 'buddies' were in agreement with the Democrats that the 'era of Reagan ism' is over. That's like saying the era of the Constitution of the United States is over (though I expect to hear that any day out of this white house).

Short story here is Obama used ALL of his political and partisan capital getting an 'anti-stimulus' package passed while jobs continued to decline and the market floundered. April 15 rolled around and hundreds of thousands of 'Conservatives', liberals, independents and republicans (Americans) rallied in various sites called 'Tea Parties (Suggested by a CNBC financial guy named Rick Santelli). This was a classic free speech and assembly constitutional right being exercised and The White House and Congress were quick to belittle the numbers dismissing the people as Republican fanatics that were disgruntled because the lost the election to a black man (same was repeated by the 'talking heads 'all over the network and cable shows). The news networks and all cable except FOX denounced the protesters as 'tea baggers', a disgusting sexually deviant (many apologized later claiming ignorance). The PEOPLE got pissed and felt dissed.

Enter the health care reform bill, again Obama tried to use his political persuasion (along with a majority in both houses of congress) to get health care reform passed before the end of July break. Whew! We dodged a bullet thanks to Sarah Palin calling them on 'death panels' and shining a light on the mostly hidden and harmful provisions in the bill. Then came the Townhall meetings in August and those Pissed/Dissed tea party participants got a crack at the very people who had dissed them. Wow, we saw passion in our citizens that hasn't been seen in decades. Alot of people at this point realized that what they believe in their heart of hearts puts them into the conservative category.

September 12th, 1 to 2 million march on Washington DC, coalitions formed now between Town Haller's and Tea Partier's along with many other conservative organizations. The movement grew and continued to grow in a conservative vane. Again White House and Congress unsuccessfully tried to minimize the numbers and the character of those who marched. American freedom is feeling good to these folks about now with a couple of elections approaching in November.

Governors of New Jersey and Virgina are up for re-election on November 3rd and the Democrat incumbents are losing in their respective polls to their Republican challengers. In upstate NY in a special election in district 23, there was another very liberal running on the Republican ticket Dierdre Scozzafava, suddenly a very conservative Doug Hoffman, who is virtually unknown enters the race and shoots in front of both Democrat and Republican opponents with endorsements from Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. The network and cable news (except for FOX again) reports on a month old poll put out on the Daily KOS (ultra-liberal website) trying to mask for as long as possible the real feelings of the people of district 23. The actual current poll showed Hoffman leading a week before it was ever reported.

So now that there is a real possibility for Hoffman to win in district 23 Republican Dierdre Scozzafava withdraws from the race and endorses her Democrat counterpart (shocked?). The media is already rehearsing how they will report the Hoffman victory with this headline today..


Are you KIDDING ME? We have a socialist in the white house with socialists ruling the Senate and House. The Socialist President is surrounding himself with avowed communists and socialists, to whom he has given unconstitutional power. This administration and congress has strayed as far away from the guiding principals of our founding documents, as has ever been done before.. And because We The People have stood up like our founding fathers and said STOP IT, we are causing the GOP to go to the extreme??!?

It seems to me that one constant message and action of this administration and congress has been to consistently suppress the voice of the people. We have in essence been told to 'Sit down and shut up'. We are pissed and we feel dissed~

We are going to see Democrats defeated roundly on November 3rd and a real referendum against Obama in the 2010 elections. This should stop the bleeding but they will need to be sharp on 'damage control until the 2012 elections where the conservative voice of the people will be heard in a landslide election. California is turning Red in 2012!!
