Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA), during a House Armed Services Committee Hearing, asked Admiral Robert Willard USN (Commander Pacific Fleet), if the addition of 8000 US Marines would cause the Island of Guam to capsize.
Johnson (D-clueless) said “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.
Believe it, or not, somebody actually voted this guy into office.
Islands are attached to the sea floor, they do not roll over and capsize (pending some type of volcanic eruption, or earthquake) due the additional weight of people.
Of course Johnson’s aides later attempted to play this down.
With brainiacs like Mr. Johnson representing the people in the House, is it any wonder that people believe their representatives have lost touch with reality. Apparently, some of them never were in touch.
I have a feeling I will be using this video a lot in the coming months 🙂
