Report Unpatrotic Neighbors, Citizens

Like the rummy at the end of the bar who occasionally awakens enough to blurt out some profound but politically incorrect truth (“Lincoln was a tyrant!” “Organic food is crap!” “The Sopranos ending was awesome!”) before going back to 23.8 hours of uselessness a day — we have John Cornyn.

Today he gets a rare kudos for pointing out the White House’s new “Inform on Your Neighbor” policy.

(I thought the whole “no snitching” thing was good. I’m confused.)

    Please keep to the government aware of gays/box turtles that may live in your area too.

    “It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. . . . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.”

    – Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), advocating a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in a speech Thursday to the Heritage Foundation.

    More accurately, the White House asked Americans, not to “inform on their neighbor”, but to help dispel “disinformation about health insurance reform out there.” This blog post is an example.

    “Fear, I would say, precedes anger, and I think there are a lot of people who tell me they are scared of what they see coming out of Washington in terms of spending and the debt and muscular federal intervention on everything from financial institutions to healthcare,” Cornyn said. “It’s almost like a part of the grieving process.” [...]

    “No one would have ever thought six months ago we would be where we are today. I see real opportunities for us,” Cornyn said at a meeting with reporters. “2010 did not look like it was going to be a particularly friendly year for us.”

    hey hey hey……..BOOH!

  4. I believe we should obey our dear leader so I have started to forward him any email I get that might be disinformation. So far I have forwarded him over 145 emails that have questionable materials. Perhaps they can use the Viagra…and even might want to send that fellow in Nigeria some money to reclaim his fortune. I call on everyone to go to their spam folder and forward this stuff to flag@whitehouse.gov so that the government can refute those claims that just aren’t the true.

    Wonder how they’re going to justify breaking the law this way. Such collection of information is a violation of the Privacy Act of 1974…
