"Once in a while you find yourself in an odd situation. You get into it by degrees and in the most natural way but, when you are right in the midst of it, you are suddenly astonished and ask yourself how in the world it all came about."

“The market was king, that much was clear. Share worth had replaced human worth. And it wasn’t so much a question of what that meant for the present day, since that was quite obvious: economic redistribution from the poor to the rich.”

“Our love affair with guns has nothing to do with tyranny, or militias, or self-preservation. Just ask any NRA member the following: If Jesus Christ himself were to come down off the cross and grant you one wish, would you opt for a world without guns -- or the one we live in now? If every gun owner truly feared for their life and liberty, the answer would be obvious. But it's not about life and liberty. It's all about the sheer hard-on of owning a gun.”

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it." —Patrick Henry (1775)

“One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander's last meal.”

"This is not about Ukraine. Facts are on the president's side. Zelensky said he wasn't pressured. Ukrainians didn't even know aid was held at the time of the call, and most importantly, they did nothing to get the aid released. This is about one basic fact: the Democrats have never accepted the will of the American people... The attacks on the president started before the election." Jim Jordan

“Forget the National Debt Clock. We need an electronic billboard to track all the daily shootings in this country. I'm really sick of listening to all the mouth breathers who soil their camouflage pants every time someone suggests we might have a gun problem. Other countries have crazy, violent people. What they don't have is 300,000,000 WMDs and a gun show loophole that allows any psycho with a valid credit card to own 'em.”

"They lied to the [FISA] Court 17 times. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was desperate to stop Trump. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier was working for the Clinton campaign. Didn't tell the Court the guy who wrote the dossier had been fired by the FBI for leaking information to the press and the FBI continued the investigation," Jim Jordan

The Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day: Jim Jordan

July 31st, 2007: Jim Jordan votes against the Equal Pay Bill.
October 25th, 2007: Jordan votes against the reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, denying health insurance to millions of children.
November 7th, 2007: Jim Jordan votes against ENDA, allowing the continued discrimination of LGBT citizens based on their sexual identity in the workplace.

April 29th, 2009: Jim Jordan votes against the Hate Crimes Expansion that would provide protections to LGBT citizens.
June 30th, 2010: After Wall Street bankers taking unnecessary risks nearly imploded the global economy in 2007, legislation finally comes forward to prevent the same behaviors from being permitted in the future. The signature piece of legislation to prevent another financial meltdown was Dodd-Bill Wall Street Reform, which Jim Jordan voted against.
July 30th, 2010: Months after the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a bill comes to the floor to better regulate off-shore drilling. Jordan is apparently alright with ecological disasters continuing in the future, as he votes against it.
December 8th, 2010: Rep. Jordan votes against the DREAM Act.
December 15th, 2010: Jordan votes against the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
January 5th, 2011, Rep. Jordan co-sponsors the first attempt by Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He has voted for every attempt to do so since.
On February 18th, 2011, Jordan votes to defund Planned Parenthood.
September 15th, 2012: Jim Jordan votes for the “No More Solyndras Act”.
February 28th, 2013: Jordan votes against the new version of the Violence Against Women Act.

October 16th, 2013: Jim Jordan voted against reopening the federal government and ending the 2013 Government Shutdown.
Feb 26th, 2014: Jordan goes “all in” on the faux-scandal surrounding the IRS researching SuperPACs by co-sponsoring and voting for the “Stop the Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act”.
July 10th, 2014: Rep. Jordan votes for House Amendment 1040, to prevent the implementation of the dreaded United Nations Agenda 21 Treaty, that in spite of just being recommended climate change guidelines, have many conspiracy theorists within the extreme right convinced it’s a plot for global domination.
February 3rd, 2015: Jim Jordan votes for the 60th Republican attempt at repealing the Affordable Care Act. This in spite of the fact that the law is not just working, but better than experts predicted.
March 3rd, 2015: Jordan votes against funding the Department of Homeland Security as part of a Republican protest of President Obama’s executive orders on immigration.
May 13th, 2015: Jim Jordan votes for HR 36, a 20 week abortion ban.
September 11th, 2015: Jordan votes against the United States’ nuclear treaty with Iran.
September 18th, 2015: Rep. Jordan votes for a bill with most House Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood, based on highly edited “sting” videos submitted by a Pro-Life advocacy group that have been repeatedly debunked by investigators.
November 19th, 2015: Jordan votes for the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act, reacting to the terror attacks in Paris by jihadists from France and Belgium by trying to create greater restrictions to keep out Syrian refugees, of whom exactly zero were involved in those attacks.
February 2nd, 2016: Jim Jordan votes for HR 3762, the 61st attempt by Congressional Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (which is still working better than was predicted).
May 19th, 2016: Rep. Jordan votes against House Amendment 1079, which would have prohibited the use of federal funds for discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. So if you were wondering, yes, he’s pro-discrimination, apparently.

“If you're one of those delusional 2nd Amendment types who believes you and your trailer park 'militia' might need to take on the Army, the Navy, the 101st Airborne and SEAL Team 6; not only should you be denied the right to bear arms -- but the right to your belt & shoelaces as well ... 'cause you're stark, ravin' batshit!!!”

"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send 150 lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, & talk by the hour? That 150 lawyers should do business together ought not to be expected." —Thomas Jefferson (1821)

“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that there is something seriously wrong with this system. Predatory capitalism is a system that puts rich people on a pedestal, legalizes greed, and enables the rich to exploit the poor.

It’s morally wrong.

What kind of a God would support something so immoral? Would Jesus support the exploitation of the poor by the rich? No, of course not.

If you think of yourself as a follower of Christ’s teachings, if you consider yourself a good person, you are morally obligated to be against greed. It’s your duty as a good person to be against exploitation. It’s your moral duty to be against predatory capitalism.”
