Campus Question – July 12, 2012

Tonight’s question, greetings, and social banter here. (More)

Tonight’s Campus Question
After House Republicans wasted $50 million on votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) insists is the threshold to the Holocaust, today the House Agriculture Committee voted to cut $35 billion from the federal food and nutrition budget, including $18.5 billion from needy families under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Might astronomers’ claims of finding starless galaxies containing balls of hot gas be merely the reflected emissions of Republican gatherings?

    Sometimes ya gotta howl, either in outrage or with laughter. I’d rather howl with laughter, so I’m going to imagine that the astronomers actually photographed the emissions of Republican gatherings, reflecting off temperature inversions. (Hey, it worked for UFO sightings.) These gatherings, judging by the news, would be starless masses of hot gas. So there ya go. 😉

      I gotta go with clueless masses of hot gas. Sorry to disappoint…..

    Once again Bachmann leads the charge of crazy cliff people. Hot air, wasted money and people do still need jobs.

    This is so every sad!

    NASA’s Hubble Shows Milky Way is Destined for Head-On Collision

    NASA astronomers announced Thursday they can now predict with certainty the next major cosmic event to affect our galaxy, sun, and solar system: the titanic collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy.

    The Milky Way is destined to get a major makeover during the encounter, which is predicted to happen four billion years from now. It is likely the sun will be flung into a new region of our galaxy, but our Earth and solar system are in no danger of being destroyed.

    I vote for dark matter. Fifty million Republican dollars doesn’t illuminate very much. Better use a quasar.

  • Every time I think I’ve seen the limit of heartless stupidity from Republicans, they seem bound and determined to show me that they haven’t. I guess they figure if they can cause enough nutritional deficiencies, they’ll get a population brain-damaged enough to become Republicans.

    Do you suppose the House R’s will vote to get those millionaire farmers off the dole?
