Our "Leaders"

"You will simply not believe this. Our 8th District US Congressional representative (Arizona),
the Hon. Gabrielle Giffords, in a meeting of the House Armed Services Committee,
asked General David Petraeus the following question:
"General Petraeus, what are you doing to reduce carbon emissions in the war on terror?"
Wow. I had to read, and re-read this several times to believe it. Folks, there are American
sons and daughters dying every week on the foreign battlefields of southwest Asia. The na-
tion is completely bankrupt and ... quite literally, borrowing 43 cents for every dollar in fed-
eral spending. We have the largest environmental disaster in the nation's history in the
Gulf of Mexico, and we have Mexican drug armies invading our nation. And yet ....
A member of Congress from Arizona's 8th congressional district took
the time to ask our battlefield commander what he is doing to curb
carbon emissions in the war.
Gabrielle Giffords is the poster-child for what is wrong with the US Congress. We are
being led by imbeciles. To the rest of America reading this blog, and to Gen. Petraeus
if this e-mail makes it to your inbox ... my sincerest apologies for the stupid question
asked of you by my US congressional representative. General ... I am sure you have
better things to worry about than carbon emissions on the battlefield. I assure you, as
a registered voter in Arizona's 8th congressional district, I will do everything I can to
ensure Rep. Giffords is voted out of office in November, and I pray you'll get back to
business of fighting the war on terror without worrying about such petty and nonsensi-
cal matters as your carbon footprint in the war.

Also According to Google:
Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Az) took Afghan Commander, General David Petraeus, to task for what she characterized as “willful disregard of the environmental impact of our war effort.” “There is no policy, no plan to minimize carbon emissions in our military activities,” Giffords charged. “Bombs are dropped and bullets are fired without considering the environmental impact.”
Giffords insisted that she was “not demanding an immediate halt to current military operations in the Middle East. I’m just saying that battle plans should include an environmental impact assessment as a regular part of the process before attacks are launched.”

She also suggested that the Army “put more emphasis on less environmentally damaging methods, like stabbing or clubbing enemy forces in order to minimize the carbon output.”

New Rules of Engagement:

I think we ought to put her on the front lines so she can stab or club the enemy.

God help us if this is the type of idiots that are elected to office."

And then we wonder why there is a very real chance that the ragheads will be able to raise a mosque at Ground Zero.

Strength & Honour

Is this sub-human liberal b!t*h really a military spouse? I guess I just find it hard to believe some of the "crap" these elected officials can come up with! Oh, btw, don't forget to wave at OB tomorrow! It's his birthday! I plan on giving him a big happy b'day wave with both hands, but only two fingers!! Just my 2 cents!! I bet Sting will too!

Heck, nukes don't have a carbon emission problem...perhaps we should start creating large glass parking lots out of portions of the middle east. There. Problem Solved. .

That is perhaps the funniest thing I've read today. Now we need the EPA's go-ahead before the military does anything?
I shouldn't laugh. These are the idiots that are running the country. Absurdity is now the norm.

How do you measure the carbon emmissions of a WillyP fired by a 188?
Answer: you let the envirowennie stand at the impact site to test...
Result: no more stupid envirowennie in a freaking war zone.

She should be sent to the mountains of Afghanistan to ask BinLaden's people what environmental impact tests they did before attacking The Pentagon and the Twin Towers, as this should be a more important question since those attacks were on U.S. soil. I'm pretty sure if we start up a collection for the plane ticket here we would have that ready to go in a few minutes.
