The Expanding Vacuous Universe

This is what passes for a logical argument in Washington today:

The argument is so flawed it can’t even be classified as a logical fallacy. In fact I’m not even sure if it can be called an argument anywhere outside of politics.

Beyond the stupidity of Robert Reich’s (Bill Clinton’s Labor Secretary) claim, the founding fathers already established the reason the seat of the Federal Government should not be placed under the power of a state legislature, but rather under the exclusive jurisdiction of the U.S. Congress. Of course the Constitution is not reason enough for today’s enlightened Democrats not to vote for D.C. statehood, which would give the D’s 2 more guaranteed Senate seats. No, the postmodern Dems - who plant evidence of racism in every case they deem worthy of debate in the media – insist that “equity” demands statehood of the peoples of the District of Columbia. More legislators and bureaucracies, isn’t that just what Washington needs?

Oh, and about that name, “District of Columbia,” they’ll keep the initials but due to it’s racist roots change it to the “Douglass Commonwealth” in honor of abolitionist Frederick Douglass, who lived there for 17 years. No, I’m not kidding.


Take a bow all you educators who’ve been “teaching for social justice” instead of ability to think. You’ve done a cracker jack job of undermining the foundations of the finest democratic republic the world has ever experienced, hence transforming it into one of the most vacuous places on the planet.
