Crowd-sourcing Stupidity

I guess being the Party of No was getting old, so the Republicans decided to crowd-source some new ideas. They created a new website that invites you (the American people) to contribute ideas that they can implement. There are just a few problems:

  1. While they may be happy to promote this site in a partisan fashion, the Republicans were only too happy to use your taxpayer dollars to pay for it.
  2. The Republican space cadets bragged at the site’s launch that they “personally traveled to Washington state and discovered a Microsoft program that helped NASA map the moon.” Yes, they were serious. What lunar mapping has to do with getting your ideas is beyond me.
  3. And most fun of all are the fantastic new ideas that are just pouring in to the site. The Washington Post has collected some of the better ones:

End Child Labor Laws. We coddle children too much. They need to spend their youth in the factories.

How about if Congress actually do thier job and VET or Usurper in Chief, Obama is NOT a Natural Born Citizen in any way. That fake so called birth certificate is useless.

A ‘teacher’ told my child in class that dolphins were mammals and not fish! And the same thing about whales! We need TRADITIONAL VALUES in all areas of education. If it swims in the water, it is a FISH. Period! End of Story.

Build a castle-style wall along the border, there is plenty of stone laying around about there.

Legalize Marijuana, cause, like, alcohol is legal. Man. Also.

I say, repeal all the amendments to the Constitution.

Don’t let the illegals run out of Arizona and hide. . . . I think that we should do something to identify them in case they try to come back over. Like maybe tattoo a big scarlet ‘I’ on their chests — for ‘illegal’!!!

BP is creating a new race of faster dolphins. These fish are unable to compete against the fish of other countries, but now their increased lubrication will allow them to fly through the water. Faster fish = good.

Let kids vote!

Let’s make a ‘Social Security Lotto’.

What dope came up with the idea of criminalizing a parent’s right to administer corporal punishment?

I oppose the Hispanicization of America. These are not patriotic people.

English is are official langauge. Anybody who ain’t speak it the RIGHT way should kicked out.

    Dumbing down of America gives the Karl Roves of this world the power they want. So cut the funding to education.

    Republicans have a much easier time in Congress as they don’t have to read the long bills before they vote.

    @Morrius – probably.. like that “Man Also”.

    but this one….

    “A ‘teacher’ told my child in class that dolphins were mammals and not fish! […] If it swims in the water, it is a FISH. Period! End of Story”

    Holy crap! I think they’re serious and that’s scary.
    We really REALLY need to work on the education system in this country.

    I am very thankful that even though (probably like this lady) both my parents didn’t finish school. My mom {from rural korea} not past 6th grade, I think, and my dad dropped out of hs. But they put very high standards on my education and my sister’s. B’s were not acceptable. lol.

    oh.. though I’d like to point out that after we graduated hs… my dad eventually got his GED and went to college and earned a degree 🙂 and my mom (being an immigrant) was always scared to go to school once she came to the US. but in the last few years has completely flipped her outlook and is currently taking English as a Second Language classes, as well as drum and guitar lessons! lol.

    So I checked out the site…

    there’s some pretty hilarious ones…

    “We must protect the sanctity of marriage. Divorce should be illegal and I should have the legal right to permanently end my husband’s life if he cheats on me.”

    “I think that before you are allowed to comment on the Constitution you should prove that you have either read it, or if you are unable due to a disability, tragic miseducation, or mental impairment, that someone has at least read it to you.”

    “42. Nuff said”

    I think it is pretty obvious that people are trolling the GOP site. Still very funny, though.
