Guam in Danger of Tipping Over!

If you have faith in the people who represent us in government, you’re not going to want to read this. So go away. But if you can stand the truth, you’ll want to check this out, because it’s both hilarious and terrifying.

The YouTube video is of United States Congressman Hank Johnson, a Democrat who represents the 4th District of Georgia. In the video, recorded on March 31, this representative of the people questions Admiral Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet, about the wisdom of relocating 8,000 Marines to the U.S. island of Guam.

As you watch the video, you’ll hear Representative Johnson say, "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated [with the addition of the Marines] that it will tip over and capsize." In a show of steely military bearing, Willard somehow managed to keep from bursting into laughter.

Unlike Johnson, our fear is that too many of our ‘leaders’ are morons, although thankfully most not on the Johnsonian level.

On the other hand, if you’re a boatowner and you agree with Johnson, maybe you should think about sailing your boat to Guam, or any other island, to pick up survivors in case one of them tips over.

Much to the relief of her crew’s family members, the 45-ft cutter Columbia arrived safely at Coquimbo, Chile, on Sunday — 35 days after her anticipated arrival — thus ending a search that involved hundreds of vessels over thousands of miles of open ocean.
