    Default My email to my US Congressman Gym Jordan.

    .
    I requested a reply.

    Dear Mr. Jordan,

    So corporations are not only people... they are now "woke" people.

    Or do you now agree with me that the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v Federal Election Commission was incorrect? No... I suspect you continue to think that was a correct decision and that money equals constitutionally protected speech. Of course, that means corporations have the constitional right to both distribute money to politicians and to withold money and business as they see fit.

    The 21st century GQP has been hoisted on its own petard.

    Sincerely,
    Thomas A. Montgomery

    Here’s a clip of JJ on stage questioning Dr Fauci. Reading the comments it looks like Jordan has lots of supporters.

    See, you’re trying to use logic and reason on people who have no use for logic and reason.

    The email I sent to my congressman this morning:


    Dear Mr. Jordan,

    That was quite a performance during The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus hearing! Loud grandstanding... but misdirected. Dr. Fauci merely makes recommendations on how to repond to our public health emergency.

    Your constituent's liberties and freedoms are being curtailed by the State Of Ohio. You need to pick up your phone and direct your rant at governor Mike DeWine (R). Tell him to follow the deplorable examples of Florida governor Ron DeSantis (GQP) and Texas governor Greg Abbott (GQP).

    And during House hearings you need to start behaving like an adult.

    Sincerely yours,
    Thomas A. Montgomery

    While he may not be smart enough to read, I bet he has staff that is almost smart enough to. What a whiny, entitled, selfish prick.

    "When do we get our freedoms back?" He wouldn't understand real freedom if it bit him on the posterior.

    I just have to add a thought. Can you imagine these selfish jerks in the UK during WW2? What do you mean I can't buy as much gas as I want? I need to drive to a vacation, who cares i the fighter planes have enough fuel to protect the country? If I want to drive with my high beams on, during an air raid I will damnit! If I want security lights all over my place I'll put 'em up & you better give me the electricity to do it! No, you can't have any rubber or metal or whatever for the war effort, I need it for myself & could care less about anyone else in the country.

    Have I mentioned anything about selfish entitled jerks?

    If WWII were to happen today in the current political climate and assuming that there was the same level of required shared sacrifice, we would be unable to respond as we did in the 1940's.

    JJ is completely unhinged and what he is advocating is utter looney toons. The rest of us should continue to do the things necessary to bring the pandemic under control and JJ can lead his moron horde off a cliff and die for all I care.

    No vaccine, no mask, get the virus, sorry admittance to the hospital is denied. Why waste resources on people who don't believe in science or doing things for the collective good. Screw the bloody lot of em.

    Jordan's insistence that Fauci give 'one number or a certain date' for when the pandemic is 'over' is absurd. It will be different everywhere worldwide.

    They want Gym to run for Portmans Senate seat,he won't can't win NE Ohio. So he'll stay in his gerrymandered district and remain a representative.

    At the risk of being overly redundant, this is the result of accepting political lies as free speech.

    What's scary is he and his kind are elected.

    This is where they lose me. We came to accept 2nd hand smoke was a health hazard and accepted smoking being prohibited inside public places because of the health risk.

    I do see it as likely that the vast majority of future Covid deaths will be people who decline the vaccine, and/or refuse to wear masks.

    It would appear that he really is that stupid. Clearly the lovechild of Foghorn Leghorn and Daffy Duck.

    Jim Jordan's gerrymandered congressional district was designed to virtually guarantee the election of a political troglodyte. Its outlines strongly resemble a duck.

    He's a cat that would make just about anyone's Top 10 list of most loathsome creatures in any field. Smarmy, overbearing, absurd, combative, argumentative, ill-informed are all words that come to mind when thinking of JJ.

    Maybe his dog likes him, but I wouldn't make book on that without a bit more research.

    Oh that's a good one too, I just had to stop typing as the mere thought of the man and his antics in hearings and on committees makes me want to puke. The misguided self righteousness I think is what really makes my blood boil.

    Thrilled he's not my congressman, feel sorry for the people of Ohio. He maybe one of the reasons why 25 astronauts come from Ohio. I'd guess with a guy like that leaving the planet wouldn't be far enough away from such an odious critter.
