It seems House Democrat Peter Defazio (OR-4th), really likes the Republican Jobs Plan, otherwise known as Snakes on a Plane. Watch his praise and approval below!
Yes, that's right. It's so ridiculous Republicans are upset about placing restrictions on importing dangerous snakes. There are 100,000 Burmese Pythons running around the Florida Everglades eating everything from your pet fluffy to electric blankets.
To make matters worse, all the parts of Obama's jobs bill we know will actually destroy jobs, such as bad trade deals, or even more economically devestating, open the door to destroy social security, are expected to pass. Any idea that would actually work, forget it, Congressional leadership or this administration won't consider it.
Not to be outdone by those GOP economic creationists, claiming snakes imported on planes can help the economy, if it weren't those pesky regulations stopping them, the WTO went and killed flipper:
Today, U.S. efforts to reduce dolphin deaths by corporate tuna fishers through dolphin-safe labels on tuna were found to violate the WTO. This follows last week's ruling that U.S. efforts to reduce teen smoking violated the trade organization's rules. These smackdowns of major consumer regulations will be followed by a third in the near future, when the WTO is expected to rule against country of origin labeling for beef.
This is actually an extension of an earlier ruling and the below video clip uses dolphins to explain how the WTO literally overrules American sovereignty.
This is the problem, there is no logic, reason, honor, and especially no calculators in Washington. It sure doesn't help when it's looking bad the President of the United States is connected to a green job hype implosion, taking with it half a billion dollars, but we said that about the first Stimulus.
