Set Your Clocks Back Sunday, Says GOP’s Rep. Kit Roupe

GOP Rep. Kit Roupe of Colorado Springs doesn’t want you to forget that Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00AM this coming Sunday:


Hey, wait a minute! That’s Texas high school student Ahmed Mohamed, who built a clock for a high school science project that made national news after being not-really-but-sort-of mistaken by school officials for a bomb–mostly because the kid’s last name is “Mohamed.” President Barack Obama praised Mohamed’s science project, and even invited him to bring it to the White House, but that hasn’t stopped talking heads on the right from theorizing that the whole thing may have been a “dry run” test of security.

We could give this Colorado Springs Republican lawmaker the benefit of the doubt, but that would be better than poor Ahmed got from…well, lots of her fellow Republicans! In the absence of an explanation, you’ll just have to speculate about her punchline.

Who knows, maybe there is one.

    Doubtful there's anything to this.  All my liberal friends on Facebook were sharing this.

    Here's the punchline, you morons:

    Paul Ryan has signed off on a letter promising restless members of the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) that he won’t bring immigration-reform legislation to the House floor while President Obama remains in office.

    This is what you get from Republicans.Obstruction. Lies. All politics, all the time.

    This is why being bipartisan with those fuckers is a fool's errand for the foreseeable future.

      For our Esteemed Senior Senator, the one who won't do anything unless it's bipartisan:

      “We got assurances on the immigration issue and this comprehensive Gang-of-Eight-type of plan that that’s not going to happen,” Jordan told radio host Laura Ingraham on Friday. “And frankly, in the next Congress, there’s no way something like that moves unless the majority of our conference supports it. And the majority of our conference, as you rightly point out, doesn’t support that.”

      Ball's in your court, Bennet.

    Isn't Colorado Springs in its own time zone yet?  The Twilight Zone?

    If you need a good laugh today, read the article in the Onion called "Vicious, Feral House Republicans Run Loose Across DC Following Resignation of Caretaker"

    Must be a slow news day. I'm no R fan but Kit Roupe is actually a reasonable and like able member of the State House R caucus.

    And this meme is all over Facebook. Find something real to fuss about.
