Georgia’s Hank Johnson is Worried Guam will Capsize

U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, Democrat from Lithonia, Georgia recently worried that Guam might capsize if more United States Marines and their families were stationed there. Now I believe that good ole’ Hank believed what he said, because I have the misfortune of living in Georgia, just a stone’s throw from the Florida state line, but Georgia nonetheless. I have long maintained this is akin to living in America’s Third World. The unbridled ignorance that is all pervasive defies description, so I won’t try to describe it, but the sale or possession of The New York Times is a felony in South Georgia. Here is the background and the video:

Johnson’s comments came during a House Armed Services Committee meeting as he questioned Adm. Robert Willard, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, about the impact of U.S. troops on the little island.

“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,” Johnson said, straight-faced and seemingly serious.

The admiral seemed to take the question seriously, too. “We don’t anticipate that,” he said, proceeding to describe the population on Guam.

      LOL! You are actually living in a more “enlightened” part of the state.

    When I saw that, my first thought was, Is he on psychedelic mushrooms? It’s nice to see that unmitigated ignorance is not confined to the sooner state.

    The solution is obvious. The House of Representatives must be relocated to Guam. The buoyant effect of the hot air will offset the extra weight and keep the island from sinking.

    Next, we should solve global warming by having everybody leave their refrigerator doors open at the same time to cool down the planet.

    I wonder if people on Guam can hear the hissing noise when the Sun sets into the ocean way out west…..

      Bwahahahahahaha!! The buoyant effect of the hot air generated from the House of Representatives, with a little bit of Fox News, you could offset the sinking of Australia 🙂

      LOL! Without proper parenting I suspect there are a lot of “children left behind” in Georgia 🙂

    There it is in a nutshell — our problem with the Congress and the Military.

    I wonder if he worries about people digging wells on Guam. After all, if you dig too deep, will Guam spring a leak?
