The Daily Show - Congressman turns THUG - a thing of BEAUTY!!!

(Sorry if this is a dupe. It is a few days old. I haven't had much time for the internet lately, so it may have already made the rounds. Enjoy.)

Florida Representative Turns Thug And DESTROYS Texas During Congress Hearing! Fun
Feb 6, 2015

Alcee Lamar Hastings is the U.S. Representative for Florida. During a recent congress hearing, things between him and a representative from Texas got a little heated and Alcee went total thug. He laid into the Lone Star State, calling it ‘crazy’ and saying he’d never live there and all sorts. And when he’s asked to apologize, he flat out refuses. He might just be the coolest politician you’ve ever seen…

Rap, hip-hop, etc. sucks when it ruins a person's clear take down. Sometimes pop culture has to give to a thing of simple beauty.

I had no problem hearing the take-down. And felt the track enhanced the effect by providing relevant cultural sub-text.

If you want(ed) to hear the take-down, you probably should have sought from the Daily Show ... since in the clip he interrupted the dialogue to make faces and quips.

But here is the uninterrupted clip: http://trailblazersblog.dallasnews.com/2015/02/texans-demand-apology-from-florida-lawmaker-who-called-texas-a-crazy-state.html/

12. Unfortunate. It is important for the reasonable people in Congress to maintain a standard of courtesy.

"Courtesy" is thought to have originated as a manner of behavior and speech in courtly settings centuries ago as a means of facilitating discourse among people who are not friendly toward each other. "Courtesy" removes petty insults as a barrier to progress in solving big problems. "Courtesy" is not easy for either party, but the results are worth the effort.

Courtesy is not hard, it is very easy for most people. And its often a lie. It is people covering the truth with false words to maintain a facade of congeniality.

Id rather have the truth front and center, be it ugly or awesome. Reality over congeniality.

30. Well he is right ex - Gov Perry turned down Medicare expansion so his people now suffer.

According to the nonpartisan RAND Corporation, Perry and 13 other governors who are turning down the Medicaid expansion will see $8.4 billion less in federal funding through 2016, leaving 3.6 million more people uninsured, while spending $1 billion more on care in 2016 alone. So those states will be spending a lot more money while providing insurance to far fewer people.

"State policymakers should be aware that if they do not expand Medicaid, fewer people will have health insurance, and that will trigger higher state and local spending for uncompensated medical care," said Carter Price, the study's lead author. "Choosing to not expand Medicaid may turn out to be the more-costly path for state and local governments."

But this has never been about health care or cost for Perry and the other governors, including South Carolina's Nikki Haley, Oklahoma's Mary Fallin or Pennsylvania's Tom Corbett. Instead, they are using the opportunity to score political points with a conservative base that wants nothing to do with anything that looks, smells or feels like Obamacare.

53. Are you not aware of the "Thug Life" video memes?

They use white kids, old black people, cats, dogs, and even sign posts. They basically represent when an organism or an object runs out of fucks to give, and does or says what comes to mind. It's not based on race, but rather an appropriation of a perceived life style. I, personally, would have used a different song to represent just how out of character this is for a politician.
