For the next 24 hours I will be posting nothing but clips of the Gowdy/Goodlatte Congressional Shitshow™ that occurred today. I would like to sincerely, honestly, with all my heart thank @cspan for bringing me this bounty of absurdist comedy; we are blessed. #HouseOfRepresentin'
We'll start slow with a bit of selective editing. Hey @RepGoodlatte, you should come to our open-mic night; that last one-liner wasn't bad.
The horrific #Goodlatte#immigration bill soon up for debate isn't something to be "compromised" with. It's a harsh, intentional, irrevocable shift Trumpward.
Burn the ashes.
Scatter them upon the Antarctic plains.
Here are just a few of many reasons.
(1) CRIMINALIZATION of unlawful presence in the United States: White supremacy writ into law. For past 228 years, simply *being in U.S.* w/o permission was a civil offense w/no consequence other than deportation.
(NB: This was quickly rejected in 2005, but much more likely now)
(2) ONE HUNDRED THIRTY BILLION UNITED STATES TAXPAYER DOLLARS to fully militarize the Mexican border.
Even @Heritage, which otherwise mostly likes the bill, balked at this as "hard to justify." You don't say.
