Think Paul Broun was insane? Meet Jody Hice( R) nominee for US congress.

"In his seven years in Congress, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) distinguished himself by calling biology "lies straight from the pit of hell" and accusing President Barack Obama of establishing a secret national police force to push a Marxist dictatorship. But the man who may replace Broun in Washington could outdo him.

In a 2012 book, that candidate—pastor and talk radio host Jody Hice—alleges the gay community has a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children. In It's Now or Never: A Call to Reclaim America, Hice also asserts that supporters of abortion rights are worse than Hitler and compares gay relationships to bestiality and incest. He proposes that Muslims be stripped of their First Amendment rights.

On Tuesday, Hice clinched a spot in the runoff to replace Broun, who declined to run for re-election in order to run for Senate. Hice will face businessman Michael Collins in the July 22 runoff. In a district that gave 62 percent of the vote to Mitt Romney two years ago, Hice, the leading vote-getter in the first round of balloting, stands a good chance of being elected to Congress."

The page you have requested cannot be displayed because it does not exist,
has been moved, or the server has been instructed not to let you view it.

US Rep. Jack Kingston Proposes That Poor Students Sweep Floors In Exchange For Lunch

Perennial asshat Jack Kingston wants poor kids to work for their lunch..

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) wants kids to learn early in life that there's no such thing as a free lunch. To make sure they absorb that lesson, he's proposing that low-income children do some manual labor in exchange for their subsidized meals.

On Saturday, Kingston, who is vying to be his party's nominee in Georgia's Senate race next year, spoke at a meeting of the Jackson County Republican Party about the federal school lunch program.

Under that program, children from families with incomes at or below 130 percent of the poverty line are eligible for free meals. Students from families with incomes between 130 percent and 185 percent of the poverty level can receive lunches at reduced prices.

But on Saturday, Kingston came out against free lunches, saying that children should have to pay at least a nominal amount or do some work like sweeping cafeteria floors.

This dipshit then doubles down on his remarks and states he never said "poor kids" and this was all the fault of "Democrats who he said planted a tracker to film his comments".

He is running for US Senate Seat here, I hope he gets creamed.

Alligator found in O'Hare airport in terminal # 3

Police whisked 2-foot long “Allie’’ the alligator into a box after it was spotted it under an escalator at O’Hare Airport Friday morning.

A maintenance worker made the bizarre discovery in the lowel level of Terminal 3, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. The unexpected trespasser was later transferred into the care of the Chicago Herpetological Society.

By Sunday, Allie, an American alligator about 3-years-old, was still “in distress ’’ from Friday’s incident and was suffering from a metabolic bone deficiency, which likely means its diet was poor and lacked calcium for some time before Allie was found, according to a spokesman for the Chicago Herpetological Society.

Protesters demonstrate outside Paul Broun's Athens office

Snip
Signs stating “Don’t Cruzify America” and “End the Shut Down” greeted travelers on the Atlanta Highway by the Georgia Square Mall — the location of Rep. Paul Broun’s office — Friday afternoon as about 25 protesters waved their displeasure at the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government...

I so want this dipshit to lose his U.S. Senate bid. I doubt we'll be able to win his House seat here with it's heavily gerrymandered district( thanks GA state Repubs), but just having him lose the Senate bid would be a change for the better.
