kucinich

Do you think horrific crimes are the result of there not being enough departments in our undersized federal government? If so, an Ohio Representative and kookmuffin escapee from an Orwell novel named Dennis Kucinich has a proposal for you:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday afternoon resumed his call for a federal “Department of Peace,” which he said is needed to counteract a “cultural matrix” in the United States that produces violence.

“On a global level, this type of thinking justified war and brings the slaughter of innocents. Nationally, it sows seeds for murder,” he said on the House floor.

“Yet war abroad and violence at home are not inevitable. We have it within our power to recreate America today.”

“Let us create an organized, structured approach to become architects of a new culture of peace in our homes and our schools and our workplaces,” he added. “This is what the Department of Peace is about. Let us establish in America, where national security and peace at home includes jobs, housing, physical and mental healthcare, education, retirement security for all.”

Here’s Kucinich’s “Department of Peace” idea from a few years back — he calls his proposal the “Department of Peace” because “super gigantic welfare state” is already taken:

    Let me guess it would be known as the Department Of Peace Equality…..better known by it's acronym DOPE.

    "This is what the Department of Peace is about. Let us establish in America, where national security and peace at home includes jobs, housing, physical and mental healthcare, education, retirement security for all.”

    From the sounds of it, it should be called the Department of Redundancy.

    JFTR, you left off the second "Department"; Department of Redundancy Department. See ? You create two separate DRDs and place one at each end of a very long hallway. Why settle for just one when you can have two for quadruple the cost ?

    It`s the Chicago Gooberment on the Potomac Way !

    I can see this new Dept. of Pieces, I mean Peace, working very much like the UN; staffed with total incompetents, striving to achieve the goals of a secret agenda that goes hand in hand with the Lib, Prog, Leftist agenda we are already aware of, actually achieving NONE of the stated goals, but perpetuating the moral and cultural rot that infests and infects our inner-cities already while spending untold time and wasting unspeakable amounts of taxpayer dollars !

    Hmmmm, is Dennis Romulan or Vulcan ? Without the pointy ears, I can`t tell ! Either way, it`s hard to believe he`s from this planet !

    He's too illogical to be Vulcan. I think he had a Romulan mother. Alfred E. Neuman was his father.

    I say, bring back the War Department.

    If someone wants to start a War with us, they have to fill out the proper paperwork, have it signed, then take it to the 16th floor, wait in the lobby, and then set up an appointment to determine which bureaucrat to see.

    Department of Defense is too easy. That way the attacker just attacks, and we have to fill out all the forms.

    What, him worry ?

  9. SignPainterGuy on December 18th, 2012 10:05 pm

    SOOO, you HAVE done this before !?

  10. backwoodsconsr on December 18th, 2012 10:31 pm

    And he found out it couldn't be done quick.

    Is it Jerry Brown or this asshat whose nickname is Moonbeam?

  12. SignPainterGuy on December 19th, 2012 1:18 am

    You lost me there; if you`re referring to the two pix, they are of Dennis Kucinich, young & dumb and older & even dumber. However, Guv. Jerry Brown (CA), aka; "Moombeam", could easily compete with Kucinich for "out of this world" dumbitude !

    RE; the first pic – "visionary congressman". I think that`s referred to in the psychiatric community as "seeing things" !

    O/T, but y`all have GOT TO SEE THIS !! AN interactive composite pic at 2 BILLION pixels of resolution.

    See if you can spot the campers and tents in the foreground and more tents and climbers near the top of the glacier.
