Can this be actually true? Oh my! Tell me it ain't so!
"She aint the dumbest in congress but gaining in that direction. Maybe
she should ask her buddies in Phoenix what they are doing about the smog there. Thought I would pass this on...."
This woman could win any debate because after listening to her stupidity any opponent would be speechless.
what is wrong in Washington , DC You will simply not believe this.
Our 8th District US Congressional representative, 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 nation is
completely bankrupt and ... quite literally, borrowing 43 cents for
every dollar in federal 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
nonsensical matters as your carbon footprint in the war.
Mark Beres, Maj. USAF (ret.) Tucson , Arizona FYI: The 8th
District surrounds Tucson to the north, south and east (Tucson is in the
7th District) and covers the south-east corner of AZ. What Google
says about Rep. Giffords: 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. Walk softly and carry a
big knife or big stick to save the environment.
