Shit like this pisses me off as it should everyone who has even a bit of cognizance. This is serious shit people.
Briefly and the article is a must read - LINK
You are invited again to testify again before a Republican House Committee investigating effects of mountaintop mining. You submit a photo to use because the time before you felt members made little eye contact. You are informed the photo is "inappropriate" and can not be used.
After testifying you are questioned for 45 minutes about the picture taken by an award winning photographer with the parents present in a everyday situation caused by the very issue being heard that day. Not supposed to do this but I did. Here it is.
The head of the committee Rep. Doug Lamborn is a piece of shit from up the road in Colorado Springs had this to say-
"I accept the judgment of professional staff," Lamborn said. "If it's inappropriate I don't think I should be viewing it. The fewer people who viewed it the better." and Lamborn said Tuesday he still hadn't seen the photo and had no intention of looking at it.
I'm not sure how to express my outrage and if I have any hopes it would be that people if they become aware of what happened that day that they would be outraged as well and change if they are on the dark side to the side of the truth.
Truth that is not coerced by hypocritical religious values and unlimited corporate money.
We are so screwed. That if anyone thinks for a second this country can be governed given recent history or think that this election will repair it in any way you are living a delusion.
What a shitty message but the fact of the matter is this is what people want and this is what we're gonna get a lot more of and real soon too . Watch it happen and just LTFO!!
