Henry Waxman – Just another clown in Congress

After going after Terry Crowley’s views on Obama voters, I simply can’t give Vern Nelson a free pass after his puff piece on inept Congressman Henry Waxman.  I believe it was Martin Luther King Jr. who wrote “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

With that in mind I’m going to say that “Idiocy anywhere is a threat to competency everywhere.”

It’s funny Vern would tout Representative Henry Waxman because just the other day I was thinking to myself how Henry Waxman is just a waste of space and taxpayer dollars.  I’m not trying to pick on Henry Waxman, I’m not trying to pick on Democrats or the Democrat Party.  I am just trying to point out that a lot of Politicians on the National Level are buffons that have been in Office way too long.  They are both Reeps and Dems and the American People continously give them a free pass.

The first time I can remember being disgusted with Henry Waxman was when I watched the Documentary “The Last Cigarette.”  The Documentary is about the House Meetings when they questioned all of the Big Tobacco Executives in Congress back in 1994.  Kind of like the real version of the movie “Thank You For Smoking.”  We as Americans had the opportunity to see our tax dollars at work.  Waxman went through the trouble of asking the Executives questions as difficult as these: “Are cigarettes addictive?” “Do cigarettes cause cancer?” “Do people die every year due to cigarette smoking?” Thanks for looking out Hank.

I don’t know if that meeting was all Rep. Waxman’s idea but he was the chairman of the Committee and he was the face that bore the blunt of my anger.  By the way he has a face that only a mother would love.  He kind of looks like Bob Barr’s bald, evil cousin.

I simply could not believe that we had to have a Congressional Hearing on the dangers of cigarette smoking.  I could not believe that my tax dollars were being spent on that.  For those of you that would like to see the movie for yourselves it is available on instant viewing on Netflix.

What really sent me over the edge was another Documentary that I saw called “Bigger Stronger Faster,” and it was about steroids.  I would tell you about the clip but I would rather let you see for yourselves (see the YouTube clip above).

Yeah that’s right. Waxman is so clueless that he doesn’t even know what the legal drinking age is in this Country.  Like I said earlier I’m not trying to pick on Waxman or the Dems or Vern Nelson.  My point is that these are the type of people we put into office year after year and we wonder why we get no results.  These clueless inept politicans that are totally disconnected from the American people are plentiful in Congress and they come from both parties.

The late great George Carlin said it best: “Where do people think these politicians come from?  They don’t fall out of the sky.  They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality.  They come from American parents, and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities and they’re elected by American Citizens.  This is the best we can do folks, this is what we have to offer, it’s what our system produces.  Garbage in, garbage out.  If you have selfish, ignorant citizens you are going to get selfish, ignorant leaders…maybe it’s not the politicans who suck, maybe something else sucks around here…like the public.”
