Jeff Miller (R-FL) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) on Monday cited the extinction of the dinosaurs as proof that man-made global warming was a hoax.

During an interview on MSNBC, host Richard Lui asked Miller if the Republican Party was going to lose votes because of people like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who recently insisted that scientists were wrong about human activity causing climate change.

Miller argued that polls showing that Americans agreed with scientists over Rubio, 56 to 33 percent, were meaningless because “anybody would answer a poll and say that they believe the scientists, but you have to understand that it is not settled science.”

“The issue of climate change has been happening for a long time, and for us to be able to think that we, as matter of fact, can change what’s going on right now to any substantive measure is really kind of foolish in my opinion,” he said. “I’m concerned with the truth. And the truth is, climate has been changing for a long time. They call it global warming, global cooling. Now, everybody wants to call it climate change.”

“Yes, the climate is changing. But it has been doing that for centuries,” Miller added. “And for us to say that it is a settled argument right now, I think, again, is a foolish argument to make because there are scientists on both sides of the issue that say that it is not settled.”

But man made, isn’t that the question?” Lui pressed.

But then, why did the dinosaurs go extinct?” Miller shot back in FRUSTATION. “Were there men that were causing — were there cars running around at that point that were causing global warming? No.  (No -  are you sure, Dr. Miller?)

The climate has changed since Earth was created.”

Many scientists believe that climate change caused by a giant asteroid or comet led to the extinction of about 70 percent of dinosaurs.

FLORIDA – man goes on deadly shooting spree after girlfriend reneges on Triple Whopper promise

Via: Raw Story

1

A Florida man allegedly went on a shooting spree this week, killing a 70-year-old man and wounding a 7-year-old boy, after he got in an argument with a girlfriend who refused to buy a “Triple Whopper” hamburger for him.

According to WPEC, 28-year-old Jamie Marie Young told Port St. Lucie police that she met 24-year-old Brandon Lamar Hawkins at a local Burger King on Tuesday to borrow a laptop for her daughter and to buy him a Triple Whopper.

But the meeting ended after the two argued over the status of their relationship. Young explained to police that Hawkins had as many as four girlfriends.

“After the meeting, Hawkins told police he became angry over not getting the Triple Whopper he wanted, so he drove to Young’s house at 213 SW Kentwood Road,” WPEC reported.
A police report said that Hawkins put a gun to the head of Young’s daughter. When Young tried to escape from the home with her 7-year-old son, Hawkins apparently opened fire.

She later found her son bleeding from stomach wounds in the yard, and her 70-year-old stepfather had suffered multiple gunshots to the head.

Ted Yoho (R-FL) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

 

1

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) has warned that uninformed voting is as dangerous as a “loaded gun,” and that one solution could be allowing ONLY ‘property owners’ to vote,

In a 2012 video of Yoho campaigning at Berean Baptist Church in Ocala, Florida published by Right Wing Watch on Tuesday, a supporter complains that Floridians who cast absentee ballots were “destroying elections.”

The supporter argues that earlier voting is also an “avenue for illegal voting.”

“It really is,” Yoho agrees. “I can’t remember which founding father said it, but he said, the ability to vote, but vote uninformed is as tragic or as dangerous as having a loaded gun and not know how to use it.”

The then-candidate notes that Gov. Rick Scott (R) had already slashed early voting days in half, but he wanted it to see it cut even more.

“It’s a privilege to vote,” he opines. “Yeah, it may be inconvenient. But, you know, it’s like I tell people and I was told growing up: To be successful is inconvenient. If not, everybody would be successful.”

“We used to have a day off to vote, but they took that away from us!” one supporter exclaims. “For Martin Luther King holiday, and who could argue with that. I think it’s a government conspiracy.”

“I’ve had some radical ideas about voting,” Yoho adds. “You used to have to be a property owner to vote.”

He surprisingly didn’t add, “The bigger the house the more votes you get.”

Q for Rep Yahoo.

You use to have to be ‘white to vote’; would you like to return to ‘those good ole days’?

FLORIDA – ‘Criminally insane’ man found in van with 36 guns, 4,629 rounds of ammo

Via: Raw Story

1

A Florida man who had previously been declared “criminally insane” was arrested last week when he was stopped in a van with an arsenal including dozens of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, 58-year-old Congressman David Harris Dunaway  (R-FL) was stopped for speeding when deputies discovered that he was already wanted by a federal authorities. Dunaway had been indicted by a grand jury in Tampa on Dec. 18 for claiming he had a pistol and 50 rounds of ammunition.

Dunaway’s medical history made it illegal for him to own firearms.

During the search of Dunaway’s green Honda van on Saturday, deputies discovered 36 guns and 4,629 rounds of ammunition.

He told the officers that he had been driving to the flea market in Waldo to sell “some” of his arsenal.

Dunaway had been confined to a hospital following the 1992 fatal shooting of a trucker. In that case, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. It was not immediately known how long he had been confined in the hospital or why he was released.

“IF I recommended insanity in that case, he must have been insane,” Tampa forensic psychologist Robert M. Berland told the Tampa Bay Times.

FlORIDA – Larry Kenton – ‘Father of the Year’

Via: Raw Story

A 44-year-old Florida man is custody after being accused of throwing pieces of bricks at children and shouting racial slurs at them before trying to escape from police on his ex-wife’s bicycle.

According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, police responded to a Dec. 16 call that Larry Kenton was drunk and causing as disturbance at his ex-wife’s home.

The ex-wife told officers that Kenton had come to get some of his belongings. She said she asked him to go away, but he forced his way into the house anyway.

Kenton began arguing with his daughter because he did not approve of her dating an African-American youth and referred to her as a “N*GGER LOVER,” according to the arrest report.

As he was exiting the home, he apparently saw the boyfriend and shouted, “You are the one!”

Kenton was accused of hitting the boy in the face and the head, and then choking him. Police said that he then picked up a brick and used it to strike the boy in the back of the head.

After an unidentified man came to assist the boy, Kenton began shouting racial slurs at nearby children and throwing pieces of bricks at them. The arrest report said that at least two of the children were hit.

Police said that Kenton hopped on his ex-wife’s bicycle and attempted to flee from them, but was quickly caught. He faces charges on multiple counts of aggravated child abuse, resisting an officer, driving under the influence, driving with license revoked and battery. He was also charged for having an unregistered motor vehicle.

Kenton remained in the custody of Volusia County Corrections WITHOUT BOND as of Thursday.

FLORIDA – ‘the Chicken Church’

1

A congregation in Florida is crying fowl after passersby realized that its church looks exactly like a chicken.

God works in mysterious ways, but not this one, according to an employee at Church By The Sea in Madeira Beach. “We’re not fond of it being called the ‘Chicken Church,’” she said.

“It’s attracting people to us for all the wrong reasons. I don’t think they’re attracted to come in and worship, I think they’re making fun of it.”

OK, but it looks like a chicken.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) – enrolls family in Obamacare

Via: Tampa Bay Times

1

One of Obamacare’s biggest critics is now officially covered under the federal health care exchange: Sen. Marco Rubio.

Senator Rubio spent time looking at all the options and decided to enroll through the D.C. exchange for coverage for him and his family,” spokeswoman Brooke Sammon told the Buzz.

Rubio took the federal subsidy afforded to lawmakers and staff — a perk worth up to 75 percent of monthly premium costs — that some Republicans wanted to kill off. Some lawmakers who have enrolled in the exchange (The Washington Post is keeping a list) have rejected the taxpayer-funded employer contribution, which is far more generous than most workers get.

QUESTION:

What are we going to see next from the Senator; perhaps shaking hands with Fidel and Raul Castro?
