On The Lighter Side

Senator John N Kennedy Louisiana

We are living in a severe and dangerous time with some of our politicians in Washington barely able to grasp their actions and how they reverberate around the globe.  If we do not take a break from all the insanity, then we risk going mad ourselves.

One of my favorite Senators is John Kennedy of Louisiana, who has a way of asking questions and making statements that point out the absurdity of witness statements, political appointees, and just Washington in general.  A few of his quips are worth pondering when we need to lighten the mood.  He makes many keen observations about government along the way.

Just because you’ve seen ‘My Cousin Vinny’ doesn’t qualify you to be a federal judge.

Power does not change you; it unmasks you.

If you believe that tax policy has nothing to do with the economy, then you’re pretty much like a rock, only dumber.

I believe that the primary role of the government is to protect people and not run their lives.  You used to be able to believe that in the Democratic Party.

Christmas ornaments, drywall, and Jeffrey Epstein.  Name three things that don’t hang themselves.  That’s what the American people think, and they deserve some answers.

There’s some jerks.  There’s some big egos. There are a few that think they’re one of the Founding Fathers… in both parties.

Taxpayers have long memories, especially when it comes to how their hard-earned money is spent.

You know people talk about federal money as if it falls from heaven.  You know we thank heaven for it, but it came out of people’s pockets – and I’ve driven all over Washington, D.C., and I cannot find the money tree.

With all due respect, I am against dumb.

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

Too many people treat parenting like it’s the 20th item on their to-do list.

I like policy.  It’s why I decided to enter the government.  The other thing I like about the government – you have good days, you have bad days, but you never have a boring day, and that’s important to me.

I think we need more idiot control.

My Democratic friends just can’t accept the fact that the American people chose Donald Trump to be president – it’s called democracy.  My advice to them, and I say this gently: Fill out a ‘Hurt Feelings Report’ and let’s move on.

I would rather drink weedkiller than support Obamacare.

I don’t know a country in the world that doesn’t have borders and doesn’t want to know who is coming into their country.

I trust Russia and China and Iran and North Korea like I trust a Jussie Smollett police report.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

This election in Georgia will be the most important in history. You have nothing to worry about unless you are a taxpayer, parent, gun owner, cop, a person of faith, or an unborn baby!

Democrats are the well-intended arugula and tofu crowd.

You can only be young once, but you can always be immature.

Americans are thinking, there are some good members of Congress but we can’t figure out what they are good for. Others are thinking, how did these morons make it through the birth canal.

Always follow your heart…but take your brains with you.

When the Portland mayor’s IQ gets to 75, he oughta sell.

I keep trying to see Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s point of view, but I can’t seem to get my head that far up my ass.

Go sell your crazy somewhere else…we are all stocked up here.

I trust most Middle Eastern countries as much as gas station sushi.

You can get a goat to climb a tree, but you’d be better off hiring a squirrel. 

This has been going on since Moby Dick was a minnow.

Never stand between a dog and a fire hydrant.

Our country was founded by geniuses, but it’s now being run by idiots.

It appears that he might do the right thing, but only when closely supervised and cornered like a rat.

This is why space aliens won’t talk to us.

Democrats are running around like they found a hair in their biscuit.

Chuck Schumer just moo’s and follows Nancy Pelosi into the cow chute.

What planet did you parachute in from?

We need some seriousness right now to navigate very difficult international events.  But from time-to-time, we also need to take a break and lighten the load.
