Congress Open Thread

In other news, the House of Representatives has canceled their work session for the remainder of the month and will not return to Washington until November 12th.

Must be nice.

Meanwhile, racist rancher and freeloader Cliven Bundy is facing a lawsuit because one of his cows almost killed a woman.

The accident report said authorities at the scene had to herd four other cows away from the highway through a hole in the fence along the interstate.

“The cow’s owner never arrived on scene after being contacted by NHP dispatch,” the report said.

Bundy says it’s the state’s job to maintain fencing; not his. If you can believe that shit.

    Funny thing is there isn’t a lick of difference between how Bundy runs his ranch and how, for example, Mitt Romney ran Bain Capital:

    Gobble up as many publically benefits as you can while dumping as much of your liabilities on the general public as possible. Cry “tyranny” over even the suggestion you should contribute back to the public good whose mere existence accounts for 80% of your profit margin and politically fight to keep anyone you don’t like from getting same benefit.

    It is what they mean when they say “Free Market Capitalism”

    Perhaps government could repair fences if ranchers paid the required grazing fees?
    Oh, I’m sorry, I’m just talking nonsense to the privileged, white grifters who take no personal responsibility for anything and hate government yet want government to take care of them.

    Bundy is absolutely, utterly devoid of any sense of responsibility.

    “It’s a state problem. It’s not our problem,” Bundy said. “We really feel bad when it happens.”

    “We really feel bad when it happens” ?? So his cows causing car accidents is a regular occurrence?

    Bundy said Wednesday that technically he is within his rights to make a claim of his own against Beck.
    “The person whose car hit that cow is liable to me,” he said.

    Someone should dope slap him hard with a 2×4 and then sue him for damaging their lumber.
