Blake Farenthold (R-TX) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day, yes again’

Via: Americans Against The Tea Party

Congressman Blake Farenthold (R- Texas via every fast food restaurant in the state) told veterans about to lose their disability checks due to the

government shutdown, that they would have to make sacrifices.

Because goodness knows that former soldiers receiving disability haven’t already made extreme sacrifices. For this country. To keep it free.

Let us quote the Congressman since this statement cannot be paraphrased

“I feel like my mandate when I was elected was to go reduce the size of government, lower taxes, and increase freedom, and freedom isn’t free, and sometimes you have to make a small sacrifice to move forward with what you’re after,” Farenthold said.

Farenthold, who appears to have not sacrificed anything ever- except the risk of diabetes and heart disease- has been serving in the Congress for all of two years. And yet feels quite comfortable in stopping major parts of the federal government from functioning.

In fact, the corpulent Congressman from Corpus Christi is quite comfortable speaking on behalf of all the American citizens not just the ones in his gerrymandered sinkhole of a district.

He told a reporter that folks are upset about NSA spying and of course, Benghazi, not inre a bunch of newbie elected officials taking the country hostage for 13 days.

Everyone read this and remember. Showboats like Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz were confronted by veterans last Sunday. The former military folks, who came to D.C. to protest memorials being closed, told the Tea Party people they were in fact to blame, saying, “The Republicans closed the government. The Republicans closed the government. You’re an idiot.”

A message for the retired veterans who were on the verge of losing their disability checks next month.

“I feel like my mandate when I was elected was to go reduce the size of government, lower taxes, and increase freedom, and freedom isn’t free, and sometimes you have to make a SMALL SACRIFICE to move forward with what you’re after,” Congressman Farenthold said.

Blake Farenthold (R-TX) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

When President Obama announced on Friday relief from deportation for undocumented people who came to the country as children, he noted, “They were brought to this country by their parents, sometimes even as infants, and often have no idea that they’re undocumented until they apply for a job or a driver’s license or a college scholarship.”

~~~

Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) (see photo) disagrees.

During an appearance on CNN’s Starting Point this morning, Farenthold told Soledad O’Brien that he believes that 16-year-old kids can make their own decisions about immigrating to the United States, claiming that his own 16-year-old daughter argues about “pretty much everything the family wants to do”:

FARENTHOLD: Well, you are also talking about people that came over at 16 years of age. At that point, you had a say in it, and that looks kind of more like amnesty. […]

OBRIEN: You think a 16 year old whose parents are coming across the border has a say in whether or not they’re just going to stay behind in their country?

FARENTHOLD: They’re certainly in a position to have a conversation with their parents about it.

OBRIEN: A sixteen year old is in a position to have a conversation with their parents about coming across the border, you think?

FARENTHOLD: Believe me, my sixteen year old daughter has given me some input on pretty much everything the family wants to do.

~

Bottom-line: Most 16-year-old children are, of course, reliant on their parents for financial support, and do not actually get a say in where their families move.

And the President is right that many children don’t know their immigration status until much later — when they apply for a job or a drivers’ license.
